RE: Best route

Though Denver will be a little shorter, a little cooler and more grades.

RE: BYO camper to South America - Pros and Cons?

What countries are you interested in visiting? We really enjoyed our 6 week driving trip (rent car and Air B&B's in Chile). Any though of driving to Panama and then ship to Columbia?

RE: Ever Add A Dehumidifier ??

Not really, though I am a firm believer in a dehumidifier when the RV (or boat for that matter) is in storage. A dehumidifier (like the house-type 30 pint we use) will add HEAT to the interior. Better to clear the roof A/C drains and insure that they are working properly.

RE: Air line filter

What chassis? On some, it is above the rear axle. When you find it, copy down the make and model number. And a very good option, particularly if the dryer is OE/15 years old if you are not real mechanical is to just replace it with a factory (as in the factory that made it, not a Chinese "made to replace" complete air dryer). It will come with not only new desiccant filter(s), but new valves, new heater, etc.

RE: class a in storage for over a year

SMELL IT! If it smells like gasoline, just drive it. If it smells "off", drain and put in new. Fuel injection parts can get expensive. Very likely you will find it is just fine.

RE: 2003 Newmar Dutch star help

Assuming you are not triggering leveling (i.e. you just shut the coach down and did not use any "level function"), then you have AIR LEAKS.

RE: 2003 Newmar Dutch star shift pad

Yes, let us know if you have the one window shift pad or two. ASSUMING it is a one window, 6 is exactly the same as "D" in your car. It is the gear toward which the transmission will shift as you accelerate. The mode button is entirely separate and changes when the transmission will shift up/down at higher throttle positions.

RE: Belts on diesel pusher

While there, replace the serpentine belt tensioner and check the fan bearing carefully.

RE: Tire size

As long as all tires on an axle are the same, no problem with different ones on different axles.

RE: Air brake issues

What chassis? There have been some failures of the "communication box" between air pressure sender and dash gauges.

RE: State Hwy 1 Monterrey to Colombia

How about 85 Libre, then NW 2 to Columbia Crossing. Been a couple of years, but that worked for us. Yes, longer, but completely avoided downtown Nuevo Laredo and Laredo.

RE: State Hwy 1 Monterrey to Colombia

Enjoy. Fort Davis SP is one of our favorites. But, then again, so is San Miguel de Allende!

RE: Taos and Santa Fe with 37’ Taos motorhome

Yup in those wonderful places, you have to understand that the downtown was laid out many centuries ago. Do not expect parking downtown for a motorhome. But, there is some public transportation and certainly Uber. DON'T MISS THEM. BTW, we spend summers in Angel Fire, just east of Taos. 8,400'+ makes for a very nice summer climate.

RE: Parking brake light and alarm comes on and cameras turn off

Please tell us what RV and what chassis you have.

RE: Weigh Station ??

Like most of the others, in a quarter million miles in diesel pushers, never stopped at one and was never asked to. We are not a commercial vehicle.

RE: Replacement battery caps

Yup any place that sells batteries will have the old/core batteries where they can pull one for you.

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

I certainly have no problem with fluid analysis and my last one was also by JG. But, if how old the fluid and/or filters are is unknown, just go ahead and service it. Same for all fluids. Then you have a baseline for establishing PM schedule.

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

If 6 speed, 3000 series transmission (like MD3060) 4th is direct, 5th and 6th are OD's. There will be a plate on the driver's side of the transmission with model and serial number-- good to have when ordering parts/filters as there are both shallow and deep pans. Torque converter is locked in "high 2nd" and all higher gears. The lock up in second is at higher engine speed and feels like a mini-shift. Servicing is pretty straightforward. Get the filter kit from an Allison dealer. It has filters, gaskets and instructions. Not a difficult job. Then get a 5 gallon pail from the Allison dealer of Transynd 668 (the newest fluid that replaces earlier fluids).

RE: Any Allison transmission general info ?

Allison 6 speed 3000 series electronic transmission or Mechanical 4 speed. Both were used with the Cummins B engine, as were some 5 speed 1000 and 2000 series.

RE: Diesel pusher guys …which boost and EGT gauges ?

If stock, no need to go there. It is only when adding extra fuel to the Cummins factory settings that one has to monitor them. And, if electronic engine, the ScanGauge D is a good choice for most monitoring functions including boost(not EGT, as that requires installation of a new sensor in the exhaust manifold).
