Yepper....got it and LOVE it. Made a HUGE difference to the shift / RPM pattern. Would do it again in a heart beat. Well worth the investment, IMO. Thanks 5star.

I installed the 5 Star Tune on our 2013 Bounder 35K. The automatic shifting was greatly improved. However, I lost the ability to manually upshift or downshift the trans using the shift lever (1,2,3).
I contacted Mike he said they don't do anything in the tune that would affect that. I did a side by side comparison on the hilly road to my house and on a flat road from a dead stop.
With the Ford tune I had total manual shift capability, upshifted and downshifted uphill and downhill with the shifter. From a dead stop, with the shifter in 3, the trans would start off in 1, shift to 2 and shift to 3, where it would stay, until I stopped again where the process would start over. The same happened with the shifter in 2.
With the 5 Star tune the trans would not upshift or downshift using the shift lever on uphills or downhills. From a dead stop with the shifter in 3 the trans started off in 3, not 1. Same with the shifter in 2.
So, to me that conclusively proves that the 5 Star tune is at fault.
With the area I live in, I need the ability to manually shift the trans up or down depending on whether I'm going uphill or downhill.
I've removed the 5 Star tune and put Ford's back in. Looks like I have a $400+ paper weight from 5 Star.
I'm really disappointed, since the product and product support got rave reviews here. That hasn't been my experience.

Back to the screaming downshifts.

Has anyone else had these issues besides me? If so, has Mike resolved it?

Anyone interested in a 5 Star tune? I have one for sale, cheaper than KMart.

WeBRVing,

When did you bought your tuner? Do you have the latest model and firmware? And how much are you selling it?

We have a 2016 Itasca Sunstar 27N that you did just recently, but not sure how to post a picture?

What are your thoughts so far for how our tune worked for your Sunstar? If you would like you could email a picture to chris@5startuning.com.

Have only had it for a few weeks. So far it is as advertized. Have gone on a trip which included some elevation changes and it worked great. Going on a short 200 mile trip over the next week, which will include some very hilly and curvy roads, so we will see. But so far, very pleased. I will email Chris a picture of our coach.
Thanks

We are pleased to add our endorsement of the 5-Star tuning. Even with the lighter 26A, the V10 was gear searching at the slightest elevation. Much better to discover that I have a 4th gear!

Sorry for the delay! Been a busy week tuning at the shop, haven't loaded any new galleries yet.
