Question Intermittent ABS light alarm

I have a 2004 Winnebago Journey on WH diesel chassis that has started flashing an ABS alarm for about 3-5 seconds. When this happens all the dash guages go to zero as if no power but the coach continues to run as if nothing has happened. When this happens it will repeat several time and then go away for a while. Have all grounds and wiring checked and the problem is still there. Anyone had this frustrating problem before?

Need advice I am wanting 5to hit the road.

slick60, What you are experiencing is the not-so-famous innocuous IP reset syndrome that typically occurs on gasoline powered chassis.

A data collision in the bus causes the IP to reset itself. On 2004 and newer chassis there is a programming re-flash for this issue that is installed most often by the RSMs. I'm not so sure about the R-Series.

You may also have this re-flash accomplished by a high tech service center like Brazel's RV Performance for example.

On my 2003 model, I am currently seeing an IP reset on average 2 to 3 times when I go on the road but I have learned to simply disregard the event as a software gremlin that does not bite. This event will occur at random times with random quantities of fuel at random load conditions. Over the many years, I have not identified an event that I know will trigger an IP reset.

Disregard the IP reset and "Hit the Road!"

I have driven a few R-Series chassis and the Winnebago/Itasca 39K was one of our favorite floorplans.

You can think tank (send a PM) this issue with iRV2 member Dixieray53 who also owns a Workhorse R-Series.

thanks Driver for the input. I have been to two shops and finally found that my R-series chassis is rare and different. After 5 calls to Workhose area service admin. finally found an engineer that remembered the r-series chassis (everyones answer has been related to the W). Turns out the dash guages are not in a module but each of the three guages has a wiring harness that (Ibelieve) goes to the ECU. Thus no re-flash. Local service tech seems to have a good understanding of the problem and is willing to keep working on it. Workhorse support is getting weaker and harder to communicate with. Future does not look good for owners.

Hopefully, International dealers can help support this vehicle. They know diesels very well.

Thanks Driver for your responses. I have made 3 100+ mile trips in my Journey since the problem first appeared and I spent $$$ trying to get a solution before leaving. Well so far not another episode. I don't understand it but I like my coach and the fact that it is a weird combination of Winnebago, Cummins and Workhorse is frustrating but it is mine so I am hanging with it. I just hope my tech does not retire or move on he is sharp and willing to put up with this bastard of a MH.
