If you compare pulling your trailer with the V10, the 330 hp Cummins is going to have a lot more torque.

no one said anything about a v10 and it is commonly known that a dp will have double the torq of a gasser

we are fulltiming and tow a trailer with a total weight of 6800lb so the torq will help the rocky mountain and smokey mountain passes

why is it not fair to compare customer service to customer service.

I kinda understand what you mean as I'm not a 'gear-head' myself.

Our previous 2008 Monaco Dynasty had the 425hp Cummins with 1,200 lb.ft of torque and weighed 40,039 lbs.

Our current coach has a 500hp Volvo with 1,750 lb.ft. of torque and we weigh 55,500 lbs.

Let me tell you, it feels like a race car from start off compared to the Dynasty. It may have a different rear-end allowing it to 'feel' like it has more power. We can cruise hills better even with the significantly higher weight.

'They' say that torque is more important than horse power.

Safe travels,
Mark

Robert,
brentclemson's point is you must spell it correctly.

Very Disappointing

I found that information in my owners manual, but I have a different motor

Hard to explain, but if you drove a 25000 lb gasser with 350 hp and 500 ft/lbs, and then a 25000 lb diesel with 350 hp and 1050 ft/lbs, the difference would be obvious.

I see. Had to do a bit more reading and dust off the math skills.

Thanks
