Done with MH

Im going back to a 5th wheel, these things are just not worth the hassle anymore. Put a reman ECM in back in May, now it will not start again, i think the ECM is bad again. If some one forks over 12 grand they can have this thing. Tired of paying $600 a year for insurance when i barely use this 3 times a year.

Well that is one way to sell a vehicle. First tell everyone what a piece of ---- it is and then don't give any type of description of what you want to sell. Hey, I got $11,000 sitting around, will you take it?

Its a 99' Safari continental panther 425, 40' long, 1 slide. Body is in fairly good condition but missing a fender panel and compartment door. i can get pics, drives great when it runs, but if it is the ECM again, i am not messing with it. the Cat C12 and Allison are worth it.

Have you researched possible reasons why the ECM would burnout?

Maybe the fix is in a service bulletin.

Might just pay to check into it a little more.

Then get it running and sell it. It is a sellers market for motorhomes right now

Well this summer was anyhow. I am sure it is slowing down, but still good.

"barely use it 3 times a year?" I'd sell it too, but why invest in something else that is going to sit around going un-used?

Update on this, i have not touched the MH since i started this thread, went out 2 days ago, started right up. I got gremlins, buddy said i may have had a serious vapor lock and it took a few days to get out. Still looking to fix it up if i can find the body panels and sell.
