replacing a turbo because it whines

Has anyone with Sprinter RV, changed the turbo because of a whine noise, and doing the replacement killed the whine?

Well, Dan. Most people like to hear the turbo whine. When it whines, it's working, replace it when it stops whining.

That is the nature of turbos. The turn at a very high RPM.

Without driving your RV and another just like it ; it would be very hard to determine if what you're hearing is excessive whine.
Turbos do get noisier at their peak RPM , and your very close to the motor in the class C.
