Winny and Freightliner, both say "it's in there", but i can't find it. I have searched both from top and bottom to no avail. Anyone with a journey that has found their's, please HELP HELP with a more detailed LOCATION, ect.
The Cummins ISB 5.9 Engine is a good engine and is generally combined with the Allison 2000MH trany. The ISB 275hp (5.9) is a flat land engine when in a coach. the Allison 2000MH tranny is limited to 600FP torque and Banks enhancement would exceed the limits of the tranny. Unless you are exclusively east coast flatlander like me, go with the 375hp Cat.
The Compressor on a diesel engine is always turning.
To my knowledge diesel air compressors do not pump all the time, most are equipped with a bypass device of some sort. When 120 psi is reaached the regulator forces the compressor into bypass mode until air pressure is required again. If the regulator/bypass is inoperative than the compressor will continue to produce pressure. When the air pressure reaches the blow off point around 150psi +- a safety valve will lift off to prevent high pressure damage. That probably is the air that is being purged continuously. This would also account for readings of 150psi.
Regulator components fail more often than compressors, and can be replaced easily.
Thanks for the Hitch Helper lead. You put me right on it. I just got ofF the phone with a fellow who is the current owner of the "Hitch Helper" patent and operates the company. They are very much still in business and attend many RV and boat shows around the country. They have operations in Florida and Indiana. If you need one, call Steve at 813-800-4357. I also noticed that they have some on ebay auction, search "hitch helper". THANKS AGAIN FOR THE INFO.
I want to haul a large trailer with my class a motorhome. my problem is excessive tongue weight. I recently saw a dolly and trailer combination in North Florida on the interstate. It was designed to reduce tongue weight on motor home. Looked commercially made with single axle. Anyone out there ever seen such a device for RV's ? Need to find manufacturer and/or distributers for this dolly. No luck thus far.
