    8.3 Cummins turbo whine

    Check the gasket area where the turbo connects to the exhaust manifold for appearance of soot or oil. Next check the exhaust manifold gasket for leaks

    Splitter woes

    Wiring harness is a “known” issue with the earlier models. X-Y shifter? Road speed sensor on tranny and one on the truck. Check your fuses at the battery location. Low voltages? http://www.roadranger.com/ecm/idcplg?IdcService=GET_FILE&allowInterrupt=1&RevisionSelectionMethod=LatestReleased&Rendition=Primary&dDocName=RR_TRTS-0930

    Residential Refridgerator

    I have a 11.5 residential fridge in my 5er and I power it with 1000 watt PSW inverter and it works fine. If possible find out the specs on your fridge before ordering an inverter.

    Volvo running warm

    What type and location of hills when running hot? Year of truck? Engine? Tranny? Trailer make and model and weight? Last time you cleaned out the radiator fins? Coolant type, color and last changed? Are you loosing coolant? Any maintenance done to the truck lately?

    10 Speed Autoshift ain't so Auto any more

    On that model of trans is a two piece clutch brake disc available? I heard those are a lot easier to change out when replacement time comes along.
  12. Was it the slide rail that failed or the slide clips?
