Do they actually have it in stock? ScanGauge's website just says 'Coming Soon' (ScanGaugeD - Advanced J1939 & J1708 compatible Vehicle Monitor for Diesel Pusher Vehicles : Linear Logic).

Can't speak about this specific product. Most DP owners who want something like this seem to go for SilverLeaf VMSpc (VMSpc | SilverLeaf Electronics, Inc.) but with that you do need a computer or notebook.

Unless I'm not seeing the same ad, I see the Scan Gauge II listed on Camping World's site for $153, but no Scan Gauge D.

Just installed a ScanGuage in my 09' Pace. the programming instructions are on their web site. It works with both gas and diesel motors. My son just moved his from his ford V-10 to his Duramax and it works great. There is a ton of info if you program in the additoinal codes.

A standard scangauge works in any odb2 system.
All gassers (far as I know) are odb2.
All passenger vehicles, including duramax and powerstroke pickups are also odb2.

Diesel pushers ain't odb2. The diag connector is round. The scangauge connector won't fit. The connector with automotive scantools won't fit either.

I'm still looking for an inexpensive solution to that. I'd like to be able to check codes. They say VMSpc will, but don't expand on that much. I don't really need it, as my alladin jr. does all those displays. But it doesn't read codes.

As Jim mentioned, DPs do not have ODBII. I believe by law only vehicles under 16k lbs are required to have it. So DPs they don't have it!

Google ScanGauge D and go to the ScanGauge site. Lists the D being for diesel pushers, J1939 and J1708 data highways. Should monitor most things that the VMspc will do, just a small display. Might be worth it not to have the computer with the VMspc taking up space. Got some money I need to spend, think I will spring. Not sure if it is available yet, got to check on that.

Scanner

I wold love to have your opinion when you get and install it. Easy to use? actually works? Screen hard to read?

I am somewhat reluctant to order one just because I have had a lot of issues with my 09 HR Nept 35SBD roadmaster R4R, 340 and allisonMH2500
  • Slideout HYD banging floor while driving
  • Trailing arms
  • Steering pull and skittnesh
  • Slideout seals leaking
  • Ac compressor frozen
  • Shocks
  • Bird relay
  • I am on my 4th Lippert HYD pump for leveling & main slide (orig+3) I am supposed to be the proud owner of the pump that works but I am still apprenshive when I go to retract.
Anyway I think I have all the issues under control and I am reluctant to touch anything for the moment

Look forward to hearing from you

Looks like it might be time to trade up! I will be back on the 23rd. I will install it and take it for a ride to Tampa to have tires put on the coach, (about 30 miles each way) I wll let you know.

The ScangaugeD is now available in Canada from Scangauge Canada. Ordered one today and expect to get it in a couple of days. I have a ScangaugeII in the toad and it works great.

Look forward to get it in use. Maybe will improve mpg!!

Install my scan gauge D install and setup was quick and easy. Mounted right on dash for easy visibility . Show mpg and average! Now I can curb my driving to get better fuel mileage. Happy with purchase. Would recommend.
