I have suggested that a forum be created for Engines. This would include Diesels & Gas, broken down by manufacturer such as Cat, Cummins, Detroit, then Other. Gas could be broken down to GM, Ford, Other. My thinking for this is that there is a Cat Owners group on Yahoo but not for Cummins or Detroit or others that I searched for. I realize that I could start a Cummins or other engine group but wouldn't it be nice to have a section on engines here on IRv2? It was suggested to me by one of the moderators that we could post engine problems in the Motorhome-Problems, Sloutions and Aftermarket Section but I don't see where engines fit nor when I did a search did I see much of any engine postings. To be fair I thought I would post a poll seeing if there was enough interest for this type of forum and if there is maybe the administrators will pick up on it and create such a section. If there is not enough interest then oh well, no problem we can just keep going from one group to another looking for help on engine problems that we may have. There are a couple sites that do talk of engine problems but are not manufacturer specific.

Derek, this topic is being discussed by the Administrators. My personal feeling is that you will have more depth of knowledge and response on the boards specifically for the engine you are concerned with. I know that when I have a Ford Powerstroke question, the response is much better from the gear-heads over at The Diesel Stop.

If we were to go in that direction, I think I would rather see a "Chassis" orientation than strictly engine. Even then, I have some misgivings.

I also think there is insufficient traffic to justify all the sections that would be needed to break down all engines (and transmissions too?). Perhaps one section, called something like "Chassis and Powertrains", could collect all questions related to powering an Rv on the road. It's easy enough to identify the specific one in the topic subject, e.g. "Cummins ISL fuel economy" or "Ford V10 reliability question".

Hadn't thought about that. Chassis & Powertrain would be good. Maybe break it down somewhat to gas/ diesel? I think you are on the right track.
