I just talked to the owners other son and got some new information on the Cruisemaster.
They full-timed in the MH from 1999-2005. Since then it has run around 200 miles per year.
It has a 454 engine.
The transmission was re-built in 2004. Turned out problem was not the transmission, but some other problem. Problem was fixed.
There was some modification added to help with the steering.
They weighed it fully loaded, including passengers: 17,500lbs. That seems really high, either he remembered wrong or it was really overloaded.
He didn't know where the service records were, but knew they existed somewhere. I told him I wouldn't go any further on this unless they found them.
