Hey, folks, I have a '96 Dutchman 30' Class C. The engine is a 7.5 with an auto trans. I had the trans rebuilt but it is not working correctly. The trans shifts from low to second without problems. However, from second to third I have to let off the gas pedal for it to shift. The tranny will hold the third gear only slightly and will shift to a higher gear. I have engaged & disengaged the overdrive; it works fine. When ascending a hill, the trans will shift to third or a lower gear but will not hold the shift and will go back down to the higher gear. The mechanic & the guy that rebuilt the tranny suggested that maybe the computer is telling the transmission to shift from the lower gear. If I attempt to go into a passing gear, the engine revs & it sounds like the torque converter/trans is not engaging. The computer was fine before the trans was overhauled. Other than the above problem the tranny/engine are operating without a problem. The MH has less than 92K miles. Anybody have a suggestion?

Sorry you're here with problems.
Could you post your chassis manufacturer , and trans model numbers, could help get more replies.
JMHO. Sounds like a problem internal in the trans with the rebuild, possible a cut( or rolled ) clutch pack seal ring. At least if it was a Dodge transmission , that's where I'd suspect the problem is.
