I work in the mining industry and thereís still a few old Euclids out there with the 2-stroke Detroits. Though the EPA would love to see them all scrapped lol. Between what they leak on the ground and put in the air I donít totally disagree lol

I was at a motorcycle training course over the summer...next door was a huge refrigerated warehouse with a backup generator. The generator was an enormous DD, a ~1500hp V16, essentially a tugboat engine. When it ran up, you could FEEL it.

I'd love to see the facts on this. It would be interesting to compare the environmental impact of making a new power plant to replace a DD 2-stroke and see how long one could run that DD 2-stroke before getting close to it. Mines leaves no traces on the ground and doesn't smoke at all (until we're over 7,000 feet.)

Since when does the EPA run off of facts? Lol.

I would choose a manual tranny over an automatic in a class A every time if I could. The last one I had was a 1962 MCI conversion. That's when I learned to double clutch.

Serious question: Why would you buy it with an 18-speed Eaton/Fuller?

Why would there be a need to split the bottom side in a motorhome?
