Charlie- You can check yourself if the PTO recall is applicable, which I think (cuz I had to check this on my coach also) is the most certain and comforting way. Crawl under the coach on the passenger side behind the rear tires. Coming off the transmission, if you have the Chelsea PTO, is a red case with blue spline-drive bolts holding it to the transmission housing. There are a few rigs w/this PTO on the driver's side as well, so if you don't find it on PS, check DS. If you can't find it in either location, you don't have the Chelsea PTO and you are not involved in the PTO recall. Here is a photo of the PTO with the retrofit parts of the recall installed:
You can see there are two cases, the main case w/the serial# tag on left, and the right-hand case. The brass fitting on the right case feeds ATF to the spline shaft inside for lubrication. If your coach has the red Chelsea PTO but does not have the right hand case
w/its hydraulic line tee'd off the line to the left of the main case (bottom left corner of this photo), then you need the retrofit kit installed (i.e. you are in the recall). If no red Chelsea PTO, or if you have both red Chelsea cases you are good (in latter case somebody else performed the recall work before your ownership).
FYI, the failure is due to inadequate lubrication of the spline shaft driving the pump attached to the PTO. Failures are highly variable, with some @ 10,000 (which probably were not lubed well when installed) and some retrofits @ 40,000+ w/no sign of wear on the spline shaft. Downside of failure is a new pump and some PTO parts IIRC, so it pays to get it done if needed.
If it turns out you need the recall kit, go to Yahoo Groups
, search on "Country Coach" and join (you have to join this group to read the message threads, don't know why cuz I belong to another diesel RV group you can read w/out joining), then search on PTO and you will find lots of recommendations on where to buy parts, where to get the kit installed, what is involved in DIY if that's your thing, etc, etc...
