I do agree that if I keep climbing the hill the same way it will burn the tranny. I don't know about the stall we have went up this driveway about 15 times with no problem and now all of GE sudden I have a sluggish problem on the flat and this on the hill I think I have another problem.

From your description , your coolant level is questionable.
JMHO; top it up . Do you have a full set of manuals , engine and chassis for your coach? For a good description of level , and coolant type.

I went back and watched a video I made with the tech who checked me out on the coach on delivery and that is the right coolant level cold.

Ok now I know I have a problem. I went out and backed down my drive way a little bit and started to go forward up just a slight incline and the coach would not go forward after pushing on the gas hard. I waited for it to warm up and it finally started moving after about 5 minutes it seem to work just fine I noticed the temp on the trans went up to about 180 when it worked fine

When it does this it's like being in 6th gear starting out on a hill no movement reverse works ok. The other times it did this was when the engine was warm so I don't know how warming it helped.


Any help would be appreciated

You may need to check tranny fluid..
I would not take a run at that type of grade, stars at the bottom in the lowest gear..that Cummins should have the torque to master that grade.. Check..change fuel filters on a regular basis. Good idea to check..clean or. Replace air cleaner filter.

Checking trans fluid tonight the driveway is to curvy for me to back up the drive way I come off the driveway into gravel in narrow spots and if I miss it's over the bank I go. It could also be a leak in the turbo I'm going to do a water soap test tonight.
