You are welcome! Information flows from member to member. I'm pretty sure that one was pointed out to me by Doc, and now you can pass it on in a few years!

Time of year matters, and of course varies with the part of the country. We just completed a 3-week trip from Eureka, CA to Port Angeles, WA. Initial stops in Oregon State Parks and a couple of...

There are two wires going from the controller to the seal solenoid, red and black in a telephone cable sheath. Second connector down on the far right of the connection circuit board. Applying 12V and...

If the 120V pump was always powered your batteries would run down in nothing flat. It draws over 10 amps as I recall.

Van, "you get no power i.e. no pressure." I don't think that is correct - I don't believe there is a power component to the pressure supply once the tank is pressurized. Regardless, there would not...

Jim, the only quibble I would have is with "has its own small tank." That tank is fed both by the 12V pump, and the 120V pump, as well as the engine compressor. Everything feeds into it, with check...

Yes, the default wiring for the 12V pump is always on, no switch. Prior owner of the M380 I had just pulled the plug on it to turn it off, but I put a solenoid with dash switch for it.

What you found with the air and fuel is consistent with the Bluefire only being J1708/J1939. While the PRX1 is both J1708 and J1587 there is no question, based on other schematics, that the M380 dash...

I think maybe no conversion is necessary, after looking at more info. It is possible (maybe probable?) that the Cummins ECM puts out data on both J1939 and J1587. There is a device, PRX1, that...

Obviously there has to be power, but my thinking was that lack of power would have affected the fuel and air gauges. Everything else, so far as I know, come from the engine on a J1939 bus, to a...

Mike, did that answer work for you? I wondered, because the working gauges are, as far as I know, the only ones that don't come from the engine data link. Those are output by the link converter, but...

I haven't heard of any over-rev issues on any other model, but I could understand that others might like manual control instead of the computer making downshift decisions.

Doug, the 4th gear selection is pretty much an M380 problem. Technically an Allison will not drop to the selected gear unless speed is such that it won't over-rev, but in the M380 it will drop to 4th...
