To answer the questions.

Yes I started at Workhorse who had the area rep. (Steve) call me. He told me the problem was that Coachmen put too many clearance lights on the coach and that the air bag failed because we use salt on the roads in the winter

</div></BLOCKQUOTE>
When did you talk to Steve about the electrical problem? Did he mention anything about the relay being available? If it was during your warranty time or if they knew about the relay solution during that time frame, maybe you could get Driver to talk to Steve and get it resolved for you.

I saw where you were saying the UltraPower stuff would void your warranty if it was installed,this according to your interpretation of the Workhorse bulletin!
Did you delete all of them,because you relized you were incorrect???

Well, the phone will stop ringing soon when they see that Workhorse will void their warrantee if they install this gaget.

Why risk losing your warrantee? Because "Mike" says it is ok? Workhorse and GM says it's NOT ok.

Camper Cat...since you are new here, I will reply once to your off topic post, but please, lets keep this on topic.

Here is a direct cut and paste from the Workhorse/GM Service Bulletin about the aftermarket ECM's:

Any base engine or engine emissions system component damage or false codes caused by aftermarket changes will not be warranted by Workhorse Custom Chassis. The following are considered aftermarket installations that can cause engine or emission system damage:
" Any change in PCM, TCM or ECM calibrations


Now, the Henderson direct replacement springs have nothing to do with the Workhorse Service Bulletin which concerns aftermarket ECM's. Changing your shocks doesn't either.....

FrontRanger,

Now I think your getting it,Ecm & performance enhancement's CAN void your warranty.You said installing this ECM gadget will void your warranty.Stick to your guns son!
If the Coil spring cracks the lower control arm,they will void the warranty on the related parts.That is a standard OEM warranty statement!!!
If your shock mount breaks off & other than OE shocks are installed the same principle applies,keep up this ain't rocket science,it's common sense!

Marty,

I know it was'nt pointed at me.I just like my UltraPower & if someone does'nt feel the need for it,they don't need to let us know more than once.He seemed to be trying to unsell people on it.

Greg, HERE is a recent post about the front springs replacement. You won't even have to fool around with those horrible air bags.

We had 2 ignition switch failures on our previous coach 2001 Itasca Sunrise P32. One in warranty (with a tow), second one just out of warranty time wise.
Most times, squeaky wheel gets the grease. it did for us.
Second repair had the updated harness...so, Workhorse knows about this glitch.

First: Re the workhorse service bulletin and the comment about springs.

The bit about after market modifications voiding warrantits is in every warranty and replies to every mod. I do agree that upgrade springs, trac bars sway bars and steering stablizers most likely will not void your warranty.. (And clearly won't on the engine) but if say a tie rod end snapped. A steering stablizer MIGHT be to blame.

Likewise selected other suspension compenets on the spring.

This language is part of just about every warranty ever written. It's not news, 19 pages in the thread and IT IS NOT NEWS.

I'v always found workhorse a pleasure to deal with. But fact is, some coach builders do choose a chassis that is too small for the job.

Ford, when they build SUV's is famous for this. One of the reasons the Ford Explorer used to roll over all the time had to do with the fact that the put too much SUV on too small a chassis

And Ford blamed Firestone for it. So don't tell me Ford does not do this.

Now, understand I"ve dealt with the lead heads at Ford customer service.

I hear so much about problems with the air bags I feel 2 years is enough, so I talked with Keith at Redlands Truck & Rv Performance and I'll be going in to get the new springs installed along with a front sway bar spreader and alignment.
