ScanGauge D

This instrument is the best thing since sliced bread for my older Monaco Exec. I apologize to those to already owning one, but I just gotta talk a bit.
The analog temperature gauges on my Exec are not accurate and the ScanGauge D (for Diesel, ya know) quickly pointed that out. Additionally, this four-inch wide unit perches on top of the dash where it's easy to see with its cable going down thru the dash to the diagnostics plug.
It took ten minutes to squiggle under the dash, fish the plug thru and plug it in.
It can be set up to monitor many of the myriad bits of information available on that data socket.

ScanGauge sends along an diagnostic socket adapter for us owners of older coaches.
In addition to monitoring performance, ScanGauge D can pull codes that your engine might be throwing and tell you about them immediately.
For $169.95, this tool is a bargain.

That's their web site.

Let me know what you think!

I've been using scan gauge D for years. I have it set to monitor the water and transmission temp, boost pressure and voltage. It's proved to be very reliable.

Thank you for sharing! Your post is the first I've read about it so I'll be doing the research and most likely ordering one.

I've been using a ScanGauge for seven years and would not be without it. It really lets you closely monitor what's going on with the engine/transmission.

Yes I agree it is a good addition. Had mine for about 4 years.

I think I wouldn’t ever want to be without mine, their customer service was great too i got a special firmware for mine because my ecm wasn’t reporting RPM which is what it uses to power on and off. Mine just stays on all the time now only an 80ma load.

The one thing that would make it better would be an alarm function. Trans or coolant overheat warning while you're laboring up a miles long steep grade with traffic around you would help.
I do scan the gauges, but it would've be helpful.

Check your plug with our smooth roads they can vibrate out.

Yes, I agree it is a good addition. Had mine for about 4 years. I use it for Trans/water temp., oil pressure, and RPM.

Have you contacted tech support at Scan Gage D about your issue ?
