2007 6.7 ram fuel change

Been using B5 diesel the life of this truck and last time I went to fuel it up in town my favorite station changed to B20 fuel. I drove all over but everyone is now B20 except an arco and a shell with no labeling on their pumps. Apparently later model trucks are equipped with another filter (water separator?), but I was hoping to hear from others with a similar year dpf equipped truck, and if could provide any tips for when you made the transition from B5 to B20. Flush the tank first? Add the $600 separator kit? Dont worry and continue hauling around the spare filter under my seat? Thanks

RE: Help! A/C only works when below 100°

Thanks for all the responses. I have tried to follow up on everyones suggestions… other than calling out a tech for an intermittent issue, or just replacing the unit. :) Voltage is above 110v when fan/comp are operating. Current spike is about 4 amps for fan motor then settles at 2ish amps, and spiking about 26 amps for herm comp settling at 14ish amps from what my clamp on can catch. So running about 16.5a in the upper 90°’s here (within factory specs). Fairly clean coils from visual inspection (better than my 4 ton at the house). No ice buildup. I had been looking everywhere for a replacement Positive thermal coefficient resistor (wsx-7) as suggested, but it was out of stock everywhere (dometic called it a motor starter, but said it had been discontinued). I finally found a coleman hard start kit with a capacitor that included the same PTCR wsx-7 replacement I was looking for at a parts house in Reno. It had a cap rated at 43-53 Mfd. vs my original cap that was rated 43-52 MFD, so I didnt swap it out just yet as my current ratings were still ok for now (IIRC, one Mfd higher on replacement specs is not an issue, so I will save it as a backup for now). I swapped out the PTCR and its running normal for now. Now just need a few days over 100° to see if we got this fixed. FWIW I saved the old “thermistor” for further testing if I can find a diagnostic procedure for it…

Help! A/C only works when below 100°

Hopefully someone can help me diagnose… Cooking here in Lone Pine CA at 105° this afternoon. I know the cycles / behavior of this Dometic Brisk 2 Air conditioning unit (15k btu), so I think can articulate what it should / not be doing. It starts normal operation but I hear the compressor drop out after about 5 minutes. I hear the relay in the module send what I presume is a command to cycle the compressor a few minutes later but nothing happens and it just blows warm air until I shut it off for 15-20 min. Then we can repeat the cycle. Once temps drop below 100° it seems to consistently operate normally (compressor stays engaged), but not totally confident on that yet. Currently the compressor engaging sounds like a much softer start than I remember over the years of operation. I am leaning a capacitor on the edge of failure but would appreciate any other input to verify. I typically maintain a 22° return / supply differential and unit appears to be clean well maintained otherwise. This has been an intermittent issue for a number of months now… Thanks Jeff
