RE: Buying DEF - where?

I have a Thor Palazzo with the DEF tank on the passenger's side. Thor was not the only company to do that and the story is that the fuel stations were not clear that they would put the DEF pumps on the driver's side. A Tiffen Pheaton of the same period has the passenger's side fill. When you fill a container from the DEF pump you need to have a DEF magnet collar to activate the pump, available online. I have all of that and when I attempted to fill up at a Pilot station I got about a gallon of DEF before the pump shut off. The cause is unknown but I will try again another time. I believe I was too close to my credit card limit. In the meantime I bought four of the 2.5 gallon containers of DEF at a NAPA store. New things are difficult to deal with.

RE: Winterizing problem with water pump

Pumps are advertised to be self priming but they seem to be only marginally so. I have used several tricks and always gotten the pump primed. I used a winterizing kit like this. Raising the level of the antifreeze helps. Opening only the low point drain helps. Finally, if all else fails I have taken the input hose and blown the antifreeze into the pump.

VMSpc for ISB 6.7 Issue

I have a new MH with an ISB 6.7 engine. I set up VMSpc right away and began getting spurious codes as well as some valid ones. The valid ones were the harmless type such as low air pressure when the engine was off. I worked with Silver Leaf and they modified their software and the spurious codes stopped. My engine was manufactured in 2013 or late 2012. My Check Engine light never came on and the Freightliner dash display showed no stored codes. Does anyone else have this problem with VMSpc. BTW Silver Leaf reps were most helpful in correcting this issue. I am just wondering if I have some unique issue with my engine.

RE: Question on getting DEF

What is the price of DEF from the pump at a truck stop?

RE: First time blowing out lines - mist?

I agree that the mist is ok. The only lines you can't blow out are the intake to the water pump and the line that connects the water pump to your plumbing. I would take the opportunity to replace the water pump now and run at least enough pink stuff to fill the pump and its lines.

RE: Liquid Roof primer

I coated my EPDM roof with Liquid Roof from this company. I don't have an Alpha EPDM roof but I did not use a primer. I would contact the company and ask about a primer on the Alpha roof. I feel sure that you don't need a primer.

RE: Engine Monitoring

An engine monitor will pay for itself. I have used a Silverleaf VMSpc for about 10 years. When I bought a new MH it was one of the first things I installed. Comparing it to Scangauge D I would say the difference is that VMSpc uses a laptop and Scangauge D does not. The laptop provides a large screen and allows logging of data. I have my laptop handy anyway because I use it for GPS. I can vouch for VMSpc and their excellent customer support. Scangauge D looks good from their online description. I would not decide based on cost because an engine monitor will pay for itself many times over.

RE: MPG on 6.9 Cummins

10.4 MPG for the combined weight of 28,000 lbs is good. The way you drive is a big factor. I had a Cummins 5.9 ISB and got 10-11 MPG towing a Malibu. I never considered the ISB to be small, I considered it to be just right. My new MH has a 6.7 ISB.
