Several weeks ago I looked under the rear of our coach and found leakage of something. I thought it may have been power steering fluid as discovered last trip to the lower 48. But this fluid was not red but clear. I had to crawl up under and really look hard. couldn't find any thing. I couldn't smell what ever this clear fluid was.
We were at the FT Bliss family camp sight in El Paso. A neighbor walked up and asked why I smelled like diesel.My smeller went with the high blood pressure. This really got my attention. We lifted up the bed and sure enough there had been diesel leaking from the injector pump which was hard to see but the washing action on top of the hydrolic pump was very evident. Apon closer inspection there was diesel on the injector lines. After starting the engine it was a real time leakage coming out of the injector pump line nuts. Apon checking the nuts several were loose. Used one of the strange 7/8" open ended wrenches that is really hard to use but it fit there just normal. When I get to Yakima I will have cummins recheck the torgue.
This could have been a real disaster!! Maybe a lost motor home. My miliage had decreased by 1 mile per gallon but couldn't resolve that issue. Am still looking for that sollution.
