Unfortunate incident for sure. If anything seems out of the ordinary, I check. A low air indicator or low air pressure on the guages after a short shutdown would be a red flag for me. If the low...

Get an oil leak and it won't rust. Is that insulation heat rated to 200F? Fresh paint always looks good!

Has the ZF transmission been checked that it's shifting as it should or could it be not downsizing and lugging the engine? Is the acceleration from zero decent? Did you try to lock it 1 to see...

The bags on the rear of an FC are a reasonable size. Not sure if you could put a bigger bag there. The front is tight as you know. Hardly any room for your hand. The 12R tires make some...

I believe this could also be caused by induction since there are so many wires running through the coach and the skin is all steel. I was getting about 40V of power to the skin when I'm plugged in...

Is your fan not belt driven off the engine?
