We finally have our coach fixed - the rough starting on cold mornings turned out to be a problem with the fuel pump. Even had a Cummins factory rep trying to figure out what the problem was and they finally decided to look at the fuel pump, even though the symptoms didn't indicate a fuel pump problem. Turns out there was clog in the oil line going to the fuel pump so part of it wasn't getting the lubrication that it needed and it wasn't responding correctly when cold. Even with snow falling this morning she started just a nice as you please. In the meantime a couple of potential problems were identified and corrected, so while it was more expensive than we had originally thought, we won't have a couple of problems occur as we go down the road
