DPO Tip: Hidden Engine Danger #1

Danger, Will Robinson! Danger, Will Robinson!

Whoa! That brings back memories…

Memories of carefree days and afternoons in front of the tube.

If your not familiar with the phrase “Danger, Will Robinson” or have no idea what the “tube” is or was, then Google It!

What’s this got to do with Engine’s and what’s a DPO?

DPO is short for Diesel Pusher Owner, I’m an ex-IT guy and seems like everything in the IT world has an acronym.

Installing Radiator Air Dam on 1997 F53 Chassis

I was changing the oil under the coach the other day and noticed there is a large 6" gap between the front of the radiator/condenser and the front cross member.

On all newer cars and trucks there is a air dam installed underneath to direct air flow into the front of the radiator. It's common to see shields and plastic covers underneath cars and trucks, so why not on the F53 chassis. Not sure if this was fixed in the 1999 chassis redesign, but my '97 doesn't have one.
