Quick update...

Got the coach back on Wednesday. Replaced both solenoids, did a flush of the system, the filled it up. $45 in parts…

Put 100 miles on it getting back to my house, didn’t have a problem.

I’ve got two trips planned in may, so figured that I would put another few hundred miles on it, then take it in and drop the pan again. If I find dark fluid and/or metal, then I’ve got a bigger problem. If I don’t then problem solved.


Thanks

With a 50k recommended change time on the trans, what am I gaining by spending 4 times as much for synthetic oil? I can't stretch the change to 150k, and even if did, I wouldn't own it then.

btw Ron, I have some adco tire covers left over from my pace arrow, 19.5" ford chassis, want em? send me a pm, $60 plus shipping.
Thanks for the advice, day late dollar short- Menards just had a grand opening and I got two sets for $35.00 total. Safe Travels and thanks to the Veterans for their service!

That is a fact! CW is a great place to window shop. Spent plenty of time looking, taking notes but couldn't wrench the ole wallet out when in the store because I knew I could find the same thing cheaper somewhere else. I think it's my Colorado Mountain upbringing, mom always saved huge shopping around and I can't seem to lose that part either.

.........BTW, welcome to IRV2, you will enjoy it here. As for the transmission, you want the metal sediment in the bottom of the pan and not in the fluid circulation, that's the purpose of the filter. That's also why some pans have a magnet to catch the shavings. If they flushed it really good including the converter, you should be good to go. Good luck and travel safe.
