I'm sure we can get a few of the guys at the Mid Atlantic rally the weekend before Hershey. Another good reason to have the WCC ambasador show up at the rally

The condenser has ample air flow. The engine is cooled primarily by the new "futuristic" unitized cooling system that effectively cools the engine and transmission by routing all the fluids through the same cooling dam. This minimizes power requirements and keeps the cool pack below the floor level - an industry first.

I was wondering about the condensor, any knucklehead can see the engine will get more air then it will ever need. But how about rain splash, I hope all electrical connectors are super water tight.

I do not see splash as an issue with the location of the condenser, it's in front of the axle you BIG knucklehead!

With talk of a GM and Ford merger, does this mean that Ford will be another engine option in the UFO?

Does UFO mean another Unidentified Faulty Object
From Workhorse??

Is this a way to get the focus off the many problems with the standard chassis??

A member of our Good Sam group has had his rig tied up all summer with rear- end leaks. Also read that there are front -end problems being addressed.

Does Workhorse test components from outside suppliers before they install them to sell to unsuspecting customers??

Appears not, let the custermer do R & D, it's cheaper.

Not intended to offend, but are there answers /?

What did Sparten have to do with your front end was that on a recall
We have had alot of DP's with their issues this summer also, are the Cummings owners being used for R & D by them.

Not to offend, but are there answers to DP's issues as to Workhorse with theirs.

The anchor that was working the news desk said that Toyota is poised to take the #1 spot away from GM pretty shortly unless something turns around pretty quickly. Ford right now is at #3.

Ford and GM may have had think tank sessions with principals from both companies developing strategy as to how to respond to the off shore onslaught by Toyota.

It is reported that both companies are only talking "informally" and there is little if any substance at this point.

Could it be that 2 American companies are plotting to combat the Toyota crush before it become irreversible? Who knows! The rumor is that Toyota entering NASCAR next year is doing so with unlimited cash and they plan on making a heavy impact on NASCAR.

Dodge, Ford and Chevrolet are all going to be trying to figure out how to out do each other and now Toyota. With names like Dale Jarrett and his UPS sponsorship and Mikey Waltrip and others Toyota plans on getting into racing pretty heavily.

The anchor in his closing comments said he doesn't know what would happen if you tie 2 sinking ships together.

In closing I am absolutely certain that there aren't any issues with the entire Newmar RDP fleet and that there aren't "any" Spartan service centers.

Thank you for chiming in on the Workhorse UFO
