FWIW, I agree with what he told you, and just for the record, I think Keith runs a good, honest business. He definitely knows his workhorse stuff. Ed

I was fully expecting to drive away with a new exhaust system. I think Redlands and Brazel's are two of the most honest repair facilities I have used.

Boy, with 70 series Flowmasters, that is going to be a blast to drive ... you'll have to leave the rear camera volume on a little just to listen to the music!
Enjoy! You will absolutely love the handling and braking ability.
Your wife will love it too ... when she gets used to riding at the edge of the road. Don't take her down any narrow two lanes without shoulders just yet!

Thanks for the replies. My Chevy diesel, pulling a Carriage Cameo, gets upwards of 11 MPG, so looks like I will be getting about 4 MPG less when I trade up to the Destination 37G. I think the comfort and conveniences of the coach is worth it. (IMO)

Well, it didn't happen. My wife and I looked at the MH, but the floor plan was not what she wanted. I have a lumbar problem, and I can get comfortable with it in my truck with power seat/ Could not find a comfort level in this coach. So, I am now in the market for another coach, and still want to trade my truck and Fifth wheel. My truck, bought new, is a fully-loaded 2003 Chevy with a Duramax/Allison combo. Leather, power everything, Pac Brake, Rear air bags, almost show room condition. Only 34,000 miles. The fifth wheel is a Carriage Cameo 33CKQ with 4 slides and an Arizona room slide.

Nice truck. I have a 2006 duramax and love it. My question is with that low of miles have you had any trouble with your injectors. There was a problem with the injectors on duramax trucks up through late model 2004. The only reason I am mentioning this is the age of your truck. If i remember correctly chevrolet replaced all of the injectors in duramax vehicles with less than 10 years or 200,000 miles. With such a small amount of miles you might not have had that problem and your window for replacement is running out provided I have the time limits correct. New injectors are pretty expensive I think in the 5 or 6000 dollar range. You might want to check with your dealer and see if it is something you need to look into. I am not trying to say anything bad about someones truck. The injectors that were failing were bosche same thing that went into ford, dodge, etc. Just a design flaw that allowed them to crack and GM stepped up to the plate and extended the warranty to give someone a reasonable chance to get new ones installed at GM's expense.

Actually, it wasn't a recall, but a warranty extension. GM would replace the injectors IF something went wrong during that time period/mileage allowance.
Mine runs fine, plus I am past the time allowance.
I have the truck serviced every spring before we head out. I do a bumper-to-bumper check, plus do all the fluid requirements. he truck sits in my garage from October to April. So every once in a while, during the winter, I dust and polish it. It has quite a shine! I wash and wax it after each trip, as well.
