See if the Help line will give you a part number , for the gauge, then see if any other supplier can cross refrence it from the F/L number.
When I was tracking down a rad fan control module , the Help Line would only give P/N & approx retail, and refered me to the closest dealer for exact price. That may have been due to shiping and exchange rates at the time.

OK guys...No help from CAR or Freightliner...Whatever...I purchased a nice Colbalt gauge from Autometer (with sender). Installed it like a pro. Now I have a temp to look at. I feel safer now. As far as a "Temp Sender", I believe the gauge reads from the computer as well. Right off the "Temp Sensor"...I couldn't find a "Sender" anywhere....

New Problem...I have the dash air...Denso I believe. Air works great, Cold etc...Problem is..Keeps blowing the 10amp fuse...I realize it may be a short somewhere. Does anyone know if the evaporator fan runs off this fuse? Compressor works, bubbles in sight glass, cold air...Any info would be great..Thanks

10 Amp fuse on a fan seems to me kinda small....... try a 15 then a 20 and see if any wires are hot.. if it keeps blowing the fuse and no cold air the fan runs on that fuse too...........

Spent the day fixing the problem...The Evaporator fan and the blower fan are on the same fuse. (30amp)...Both work great. The AC fuse was an in line 10 amp fuse. Sort of hidden away. Tried a new 10 amp and it blew. Put in a 20 amp circuit breaker, the wire got a little warm then cooled right off. Never got hot again. So I figure, this AC hasn't run in awhile, and when it did start something wasn't right and after it ran a few minutes it got better and better. Just needed to be run like everything elese in these motorhomes. She puts out "Cold Air" now...Thanks for the help...

No, you'll not have to take it to any shop for reprogramming. Older 'adaptive software' in engine's and tranni's ECMs 'forgot' what they'd learned on the road when you disconnected the battery for several hours. Newer ECMs have non-volatile memory and retain what they've learned. Both systems have a 'default' setup that is perfectly capable of operating normally. What the 'adaptive software' does is to learn while driving and 'adapt' to changing conditions caused by wear in the engine while the tranni 'learns' to adapt to both the engines operational perimeters and the users shift patterns. Even if this knowledge is lost, it soon 'relearns' after a couple hundred miles driven.

Sam, you should start a new post , when ask a new question. I found this by accident when looking for gauge info. Try re-posting in Crossroads-about traveling. You'll get more views and info.
