Once when I was having a problem with a leak in the toilet (two piece that clamps together), I needded to make sure it would not leak, so I filled the toilet full for maximum pressure. Well, I forgot to tell my wife. Yup, she was the one to discover the high water line, and I was the one to catch the dickens. Tell the entire crew when working on the toilet!

The ISL is 8.7L
The ISC is 8.3L
Cummins doesn't list a 330 ISL at present, they do list a 330 ISC but spec's have changed over the years too.
I didn't realize that any of those chassis actually got into a MH! Now I know (but I'll probably forget anyway)!

That happened when I went to get tires. I now have a new umbilical cord from my BatteryMinder.

First RV with slide we had was used.. After three trips, the coach battery died on us (wouldn't charge) and we discovered it when I unplugged shore power preparing to go home. Slide out still out, and of course won't budge. Being the eager "we can fix this to get home" fella, I whipped out the emergency slide manual crank and went to town. Found out you have to crank that thing forever until the room is in. It never occured to me to crank up the truck, or plug the shore power back in to get 12 volts to the slide motor

Don't know how I got off topic everyone and thanks Mr. D. I am new to learning about Motor-homes and had a hard time finding the material that I finally did on my Chassis after originally believing it to be a Cat on a Freightliner.

In New Zealand, all of our switches are "down" for on and "up" for off. Tried to turn my truck batteries back on after camping and could not get them to stay on. Connected up the toad to recharge the truck batteries thinking they were flat, still no luck. Felt more than slightly stupid when flicking the rocker switch UP to find there was nothing wrong. Apparently things are done differently in USA. all the other switches in the coach are either slide switches or standard NZ plugs. Learn something every day.

Toilets: Never sit on them in the dark no matter who you are afraid of waking up because they are going to be awake soon after.

Don't trust anyone except your family to guide you away from a gaspump on the right rear of the motorhome when turn out to the left. Deep gouges in my aft passenger side basement door and cracked rear cap will be the result.
