RE: Cummins 8.3 codes

Thank you for explaining the solution! Cummins could not connect with or read my ECM last July until they uploaded new software to the ECM.

RE: RV Refrigerator in cold weather

Since you are not on shore power, I suggest if/when the refrigerator stops cooling as it should because of cold temps, you block the lower refrigerator exterior vents to hold in enough heat to allow the absorption unit to function properly.

RE: Cummins 8.3 codes

Perhaps this website will be helpful. Strike that; no 237 code listed. Sorry.

RE: when to use "econo mode" on Allison 5 speed tranny?

On my Tradewinds, running in economy mode causes the transmission to NOT downshift out of 6th gear on gradual grades as early or often as it does when NOT running in economy mode. That occurs when running with cruise control on which I use as often as I can. I think that early shift down to 5th which requires the RPM to go up could have something to do with mileage but cannot substantiate that because I almost always run with economy mode engaged. When I am in the mountains, I obviously do not run with cruise control or put the transmission in economy mode. All that to say these are only my observations which don't prove anything. It's just what I do. Happy travels. Arnold And you are right!

RE: spartan says they don't carry it looking for radiator

going to radiator shop tomorrow finally got that bugger out of there they silicone the radiator to the air charger and also to the transmission cooler I had to cut those lines out on transmission cooler so looks like a radiator repair and weld new connections back on cooler ya I could of used stop leak but I couldn't do that to the next owner of this coach as we are looking for a newer coach now I think most of us are that way with a motorhome we meet great people rving all the time ok later. This fits a 1988 - 1992 Spartan chassis.

RE: when to use "econo mode" on Allison 5 speed tranny?

There is more to it than what is in that pdf. From Brett Wolf, head of the FMCA technical commitee The Allison transmission WILL NOT allow you to lug the engine, it will downshift at the bottom of maximum torque regardless of your actions.This up-shift on downgrades can be disconcerting when you allow your speed to climb too high, for then the up-shift happens at approx. 2,600 RPM(diesel), leaving only your service brakes to slow your speed. I have studied the Allison transmission TCM and its interaction with a diesel engine TCM for some time.I'm still an amateur though. 2000 Winnebago Ultimate Freedom USQ40JD, ISC 8.3 Cummins 350, Spartan MM Chassis. USA IN 1SG retired;Good Sam Life member,FMCA ." And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country. John F. Kennedy 20 Jan 1961

Is it for city or country driving? nothing listed in the manual. This pdf will identify and explain every function of the Allison World Transmission: http://www.rvtechstop.com/resources/allsonok.pdf

RE: Storing Diesel long term during COVID

I let my diesel Bobcat sit for almost a year. Charged the battery and fires right up every time. Same with farmers combines,fill with fuel, disconnect neg battery cable, and forget about it until next harvest season.The big difference being that a farmer doesn’t hop on a piece of farm equipment and drive it 1000 miles in 2 days. And, if they hit a clogged filter, they aren’t sitting in the middle of nowhere trying to change a fuel filter that they can’t access nearly as easily as on their combine, tractor or Bobcat. Having maintained two Cummins and a Yanmar I can state it’s a bit of an apples and oranges comparison. DaveThat is my point, farmers who I know seldom have fuel problems, as they always fill fuel tanks prior to storage. I haven't had a fuel problem in years.
