I'm still waiting to hear from greystroke to see if a new speed sensor fixed his problem.

Yesterday, I finally got our coach on the road again. I was planning on a short trip in September but our coach batteries went south just before that trip so we had to cancel. Anyway, the trip yesterday went without incident. It appears that the speed sensor was the one and only problem I was having.

When I started this thread, I didn't know how or even if I could read fault codes from my ECM. With help from several people, I ended up reading a current fault code from our driver's display console, discovering that it was a speed sensor error (fault code 115) and after learning where the speed sensor could be found on our engine, replacing the speed sensor. I'm a happy IRV2 camper! Thanks to everyone who helped me on this!

Sorry my trip was delayed and we got back over the weekend. Leaving again tomorrow.

So far the codes did not appear on the last trip. In fact some of the spurious codes I had in the past did not re-occur. Looks like the sensor corrected a lot of problems for me. The engine does not lose power any more. Sorry for the delay, I just wanted to be sure.

Ok, just got back from my second mini trip. No codes thrown so I am now confortable saying the sensor corrected my problem. Looks like my VMSpc has paid for itself.

I believe you can download Cummins insite 7.5 and it has a seperate fault code reader. I have it but I have the Pro Plus license.I believe you can still read the codes with basic. All you need is a lap top and Inline 5 or comparable adapter. The download is free.

greystroke, glad to hear that your new speed sensor fixed your problems too.

Exactly what the VMSpc's role was in replacing your speed sensor, I'm not quite sure. But if that's all it takes to justify the expense of the VMSpc to the DW, then where do I write the check? LOL

Perry, I can't find any reference to Insite 7.5. What is it?

I see they're selling the INLINE 5 adapter for $795. I think I like the VMSpc route better.
