Hi,
Actually, Bluebird wanted to relocate the genset on all the coaches other then the fire dept unit. Owners had to authorize it. Seems like 2 didn't. .
All of the coaches were recalled and were to have tierods changed, new tires (same as OEM), alignment ,weight placards in the bays and one on the dash (re keeping tire pressure at 130 cold ). A new auxillary high pressure compressor was added. New placards also should indicate the re-stating of the Front GAWR to 17,000 and the drive axle to 23,000.
These , you should have.
The genset relocation and the Hadley changes were not part of the recall remedy with NHTSA. Owners were originally offered the move to allow them back on the road (at reduced capacity) until the new axle was ready. (The new axle was never ordered). Once hooked.... stuck.
Hopefully, your unit still has the Hadley active air.
Owners and buyers should weigh the coaches in drive mode (tag DOWN )with full water and fuel . $10.00 at Pilot or Flying J
