RE: High volume oil changes made easier

I did it again, gave a nice description and left the link of the oil dispenser out. I edited my post above and here is the link http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200623859_200623859 I am very pleased with it.

RE: High volume oil changes made easier

Here is a Northern Tool oil tank I have used for years that makes my oil changes much easier on the oil filling side of the job. http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200623859_200623859 Just add some air pressure and the job is done with hands off. The location of the oil fill tube is made for a pressure fed system, not a gravity fed system. The tank was a reward to myself for doing the oil changes myself.

RE: Newer diesel engines

I had a 2000 ISB engine that I liked but after 12 years and 60,000 miles there were indications of excessive wear of the pistons, called piston slap. So I was forced to shop for a new MH or quit. I had planned to run the 2000 as long as I was RVing. The new RV has a 2012 ISB. It has more power and more fuel economy. I say I am better off with the new one, but of course not better off in the pocketbook. An older diesel will be running on the new low sulfur fuel which it was not designed for. Most everyone says it is not a problem. Why not buy a newer diesel while you are at it.

RE: Warning light on dash

The surest way to know is to read the engine code. A shop can do that for $$$ or you can buy VMSpc.

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.
