    Overheating issue

    I always thought that is the way it should be, but I am inexperienced.... not necessarily trying to pass everything on the hill, but always thought it should cruise right up with the rv without any issues!

    Overheating issue

    On a normal cruise it runs 170-180 I believe... I hands tried down shifting, ruining in "low", easing off the throttle, nothing seems to change it.... As far as rpm, it is probably around 14-1500, maybe upwards of 2000 if i downshift. I believe the fan is engaging around 210ish

    Overheating issue

    Hi friends! We have a 2007 730 with d12 and 2 pedal Eaton 10 speed. We purchased this in January. My family absolutely loves traveling in the truck! Everyone has been so helpful! We have been having some concerns with overheating while towing grades. While towing up hill, the temp gauge would climb upwards of 215+, then the "check" light would come on and the message center displayed "engine ecu maintenance required". We did not want to mess with overheating, so to the dealer it went. They supposedly checked everything out and said it was the temp sensor, and replaced it. Next time out, same issue. Called the dealer and they said everything checked ok and since no codes were being left on the computer, they did not know where else to go. Yesterday, climbing a grade, the same messages came on, but them it progressed to the red "stop" triangle and the message center said "engine coolant temp high". We backed way off, and thankfully crested the hill without shutting down.... obviously I am very concerned. Once we crested the hill, the temp cooled down and all lights/ messages went away... Any ideas?

    Side Lights

    Depending on the year of your truck, you may get any error....i did on my 07 when I tried to put on the clear led side lights... the original had a standard automobile bulb (1156 maybe? )....had it at the dealer for a few other things, and they looked into clearing the error for the led to work, but couldn't get it to work.... Found an easy enough fix though... wired in a socket to accept the original bulb, i wrapped it with some high heat material and tape just to be sure it did not get too warm, and tucked it in the hole, then mounted the led.... works like a charm and no error now! Just got to remember to check the inside bulb for a burn out if you get the error again.

    Double Din install

    I just installed pioneer 4200 in my 730... solved both issues.... 1. Parking brake.... there is a small adapter that i bought to bypass the parking brake signal. Just search "pioneer parking brake bypass" on Amazon. It's like 8 bucks. 2. Reverse....i did run a wire from the taillights up to the dash. I am sure there is a wire under the dash somewhere, but I thought for the time I would spend looking for it, I could just run a wire to the back as I ran the cables for the back up cams. I did 2 back up cams, one at the fifth wheel hitch and one low at the bumper. Now, after all that was done, I ended up not using the reverse signal anyway.... on my unit the reverse signal triggered the radio to go to the back up camera, but I wanted to be able to switch between the 2 cameras back there depending on the situation, so I did not use the reverse trigger.

    Just booked a trip for the end of June at the KOA 8 miles outside kings island near Cincinnati.... had good reviews, when we called were very pleasant and had no prob accommodating our rig even when we told them it was a semi... Of course could not find their rates online and about fell over when they told us $250 for four nights! It is our closest campground, and since they were so nice we booked anyway.... so we will see if it turns out to be worth it
