Overdrive Switch

I have a 2004 Winnebago Adventurer 35U with a 8.1 Workhorse engine .. I had been using my Overdrive Switch successfully on this last trip .. at the very end .. I turned the Overdrive switch off and it did not "downshift" I tried this a few times and on every occasions the "downshifting " did not occur .. any ideas would be appreciated. Glenn

Are you sure the tranny was in 5th gear at the time you turned the switch "off". If you are, then it "should have" as you expected. If it won't go down to 4th when you switch it off, then I would suspect the switch has failed. Maybe you simply wore it out....???

Might look for an amber indicator on the lower right corner of the instrument cluster that indicates that the Overdrive is off.
