Ran the coach about 300 miles today. No major issues, but the A/C compressor clutch does not work now. This after giving the shop an extra day to double check everything.

So, loose head bolts on the first gasket repair, a failed and leaking fuel pump replacement on the second repair, and no A/C on the third. Cummins has a perfect record: Zero for three!

Hard to find good help these days !!!
