I purchased a 2005 Beaver motorhome with a CAT C9 engine 1 1/2 years ago. I've had numerous mechanical problems including:
-oil pump failure summer 2011
-oil cooler failure last week ($7,000 estimate to repair per CAT dealer- needs to remove radiator & have them cleaned,etc)
- HEUI system has problems-found metal in the pump and OHMS are out of range). CAT dealer estimates $7,000 to "clean out" / repair HEUI system
Seems like one problem after another. CAT H/O offered to pay 30% towards oil cooler repairs. They don't know about HEUI problem yet. I'll be calling them Monday.
Anyone have any input / advice for a frustrated unhappy non mechanical RVer?
