    We had an additional code logged on our trip to Florida. Called our service center with that code, and they determined that it was a communication problem between the ECU and the VP44 injector system. In our case, it was caused by the Ag Diesel Solutions 20300 performance chip (faulty harness). We de-installed the ADS system, and the code went away. Upon returning home, we shipped the harness to Ag Diesel Solutions, they replaced the faulty harness (lifetime warranty), and we've been code-free ever since.

    While we use the ScanGauge mostly for realtime performance readings, when the ECU logs a trouble code, we want immediate access to that info, and so far that's exactly what we have gotten via our ScanGauge.

    We stayed at the Green Creek Inn & RV Park, but would NOT recommend it. If you are looking for a place outside the park, keep on looking.

    Yes,

    The daily camping rates are typical of Florida State Parks - $20's per day, which is cheap for full hookups.

    Nothing is really free, but there's always Walmart.

    Sorry for the late reply. We were scheduled to stay at Canyon - no hookups, but nice.

    I recently had an "event" with my rig and threw a code. I immediately called ScanGauge Tech Support, and they gave me a precise interpretation: ABS data out of range (too high).

    Turned out I had a leaky oil hub that dripped on and shorted out my speed sensor and that made the ABS system go a little whacky.

    Go figure!

    I've added you to my Notify List when I see one hit the market. In the meantime, compare the 2801 and 2802 brochures. The coaches are quite different in how they're optioned, and it's good to be aware of the differences.

    A wonderful read and the photos really brought your story to life and looked like a park we well soon be heading for, but I'm thinking next year as I put together a road trip plan, thanks for sharing your story.

    I installed a ScanGauge D about a month ago on my 2005 Kountry Star with a 330 HP ISC engine because I was getting an intermittent check engine light. None of the three codes that were stored are listed on the linked document. I have found other lists that do include one of the codes, and they do not agree, indicating entirely different issues. One of the lists was provided by ScanGauge. I have asked two Cummins repair shops, and both told me the generic codes on the ScanGauge are worthless - you need a code reader that uses (I suspect proprietary) Cummins software. Maybe someone has solved this issue with ScanGauge, but my experience so far is that, as a code reader, they are useless on Cummins engines.

    We have an HWH leveling system on our coach, if that's what you were asking.

    We usually hit Blue Beacon 3 or 4 times our year. Once per year we do a thorough DIY exterior cleaning with Aero Wash/Wax, which is an awesome product.

    Wow my husband and I were wondering where we could bathe our 25 foot mini lite Rockwood. Turns out we have a blue beacon 15 minutes from where we store it. Thanks for the info. Enjoy your travels
