  1. Thank you for your advice I appreciate it.
  2. Hello I am a two year newbie. I have a trip coming up that I am thinking about because of two long steep hills. the two hills I am thinking about is CA hwy 223 from hwy 58 down to Arvin, CA. and then hwy 166 from hwy 99 over to hwy 101. I am driving a 2003 Diplomat 300 cummins Allison pac brake. pulling a 2016 Jeep with air supplement braking. I have learned to turn on pac brake slow it down to let it shift. on these long steep hills how low of gear to u want to go? or how low on speed? or r these crazy hills stay away from. I have serviced brakes. Thank u for your help. on 166 from 101 to 99 it has two runaway ramps in a short distance so it is got thinking I need to ask someone gas been there done that.

  5. I pick up my coach from paint shop with the Diamond Shield on it. The first night I noticed a flaw in the new diamond shield. I contacted Diamond Shield and discovered the lifetime warranty is useless. I am very Disappointed with diamond shield. I removed it and put a different brand that I am very happy with it. I will NEVER ever use diamond shield again.

  10. Hello 2003 Monaco Diplomat 40 DST Cummins 8.1 I bought this coach used and never used a pac brake before. Have read the very brief info in the coach master manuel also searched this site. I don't think I am using it correct. The speed continued to increase going down Cuesta grade near San Luis Obispo. Could someone give my some pointers on pac brake operation? What speed do u start at? shift down first to get rpms up ? Please help I feel like a FNG
  11. Thank you for your responses, I will buy automatic and just discovered they now have 8 speed automatics which gives 9% better fuel economy. It also may be a daily driver when not towing.
  12. Hello everyone, I am looking to buy a Wranger 2012 or newer. Trying to decide btw Auto or manuel trans. I am leaning towards the manuel due long time proven toad. The auto is towable per owners manuel. But after reading about people stopping and shifting gears every so often to keep things lubricated. I wondering if the manuel is better way to go. I have a knee replacement and the auto wound be easier. Thank you for your time to read my post.
