When I allowed the chassis battery to go completed dead in my Cummins 8.3 CAPS system the engine on board computer gave a light. I had to get a Cummins computer to reset the engine computer..

Thanks for the input I did notice them changing some batteries out, I will wait for the final verdict. I will also get a pre purchase inspection from lemonsquad

A light being on isn't the end of the world, and a dealer not having a diesel mechanic on retainer isn't the end of the world either. Not every dealer is a big dealer and not every dealer has someone as knowledgeable as Doug in their service department.

It sounds like you're moving forward and doing your due diligence as needed.

If everything else was OK I certainly wouldn't let a light on stop me from looking. It would stop me from purchasing until I knew what the cause was.

As for the AS-IS part, I have to agree with Rick on this one. I can't think too many dealers would be interested in offering any kind of a warranty on a 17 year old unit.


There are 24 hours in every day - it all depends on how you choose to use them.

Thanks Bruce
Agree with all your comments, including the as is on.
Hope to get more info in writing off the service manager, the vague from the internet sales was making it difficult to get a full picture of the overall condition, even after they confirm the check engine light issue is revolved I’m going to get a lemonsquad pre-purchase as the reviews for this dealer are not the best.

Thanks again all, I always get great advise

People are confusing what AS-IS IS. There is a difference between selling AS-IS with no failure check lights and selling with a KNOWN check light. AS-IS means no warranty. BUT, selling with a system failure light ON means the buyer is NOT using their head, to trust the dealer. The Motorhome, THAT OLD, is telling you it aches and has a problem. GET THE PROBLEM RESOLVED BEFORE YOU PURCHASE. Doug

Thanks Doug - 100 percent, I’m happy taking the unit AS IS due to age and went back to a national dealer I purchased before and the experience was great , this time around slow and steady as I really don’t want a repeat you can see in my other posts, thanks again for all the input
