I did the oil change on the Bounder, during the camping season the oil pressure at idle was 39 psi and now it is 58 psi. I just let it idle about 5 minutes so I could check for leaks and oil level. When I ran the idle up to 2200 rpm the pressure goes to 77 psi. is this normal?

I am not surprised. With fresh oil, I always see higher OP in my diesels. Add cooler outside air temperature and you will see higher initial oil pressure. Once the engine is heat soaked the OP should fall.
thanks for the info- good to hear that is normal. the temp was about 50° outside. do you think I should take it for a drive and warm it up or just let it be until the spring? also how long should I let it idle before checking the oil level?
