Your spoiled now and you'll never be able to go back to living without one!
Mine has been great too. We travel over two mountain passes on a regular basis with our TT and it makes coming down the hills a pleasure.
Enjoy!

FYI, I'm glad your having better luck with yours than I did. I had a RAM 2006 5.9L diesel and installed one in 08. Worked great for the first 1+ year, than would stop working in the Arizona desert. Called the factory and was told they would not work above 110 degrees and to move it from the top of the engine to the passanger inside fender. Moved the compressor and got significant vibration and still cut out intermittently. Called the factory again and was told mine was only the second RAM of that year to have the problem and it must be in the RAMs on board computer. So sorry could not help. Good-by.

While I didn't have a very good experience, they are still a good unit on most trucks.


Interesting I've not heard that before. So it is the compressor or what? I mean 110* is nothing under the hood. I know the Jacobs has been known to have pump issues after many thousands of miles, but nothing to do with heat. Something sounds wrong to me, I'd give em another call.

45,
It was the compressor. As relayed above this is what they told me. Don't have to worry about it anymore as I have a intergrated EB on my new Chevy. BTW, I have used the new EB thru the Eisenhowser Tunnel I-70 both towing my 12K 5er and empty and it is fantastic. Never touched the brakes either side both towing and not towing.

Yeah I've known the feeling on that road since 2006 also. Some of the bigger grades I do need to use the service brakes though
