Dvmweb, So, what did the Dealer say? Do you still own the coach?

The same thing can happen on a coach with no DEF. We had a fault on our Allison transmission that caused it to not shift above first gear. Had to get towed for that one. So it's not just DEF that can strand you.

In closing.

This am it was about 22 deg F. I turned the ignition, again no codes, and it fired right up. Took a ride for about 50 miles. It seemed to run better than new. Filled fuel tank. Seems fixed.

I would be content to keep it. My wife, however, has had it.

Visit to the dealer resulted in predictable replies and outcome. We will lose big time if we trade in. "We don't take faulty motorhomes back." Had to try. They're supposed to call us on Thursday.

Next, letters to Fleetwood, Freightliner, and Cummins. And, talk to our attorney.

Sounds like you have numerous issues with your coach and hope that works out for you.
Wow, that's quite a statement! Zero pollution and cleaner than the air we breathe? I would sincerely love to believe those attributes about DEF systems, but I'd first like to read supporting published data. I truly don't mean to offend or disagree with you, but can you direct me to supporting references?

FWIW - I fully support pollution control devices such as DEF systems for diesel. And, IMHO, any other fossil fuel system for that matter. Air and water are precious and as individuals we should all do what we can to help keep it clean
