Never heard of this engine.
I have read a few reviews and all sounds great until I read something about doing updates!?? Where do you take it for service I sure can’t change oil and filters. Is this a rig I should not buy because of engine? Help!!
WELCOME to iRV2.com
HERE is the appropriate subforum for your questions about the motor: https://www.irv2.com/forums/f122/
There is also a Monaco Owners subforum here, https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/
where you can learn more about the Knight.
All I will say about the motor is that they used to be made by Navistar, most likely in one of the 2 engine plants they had in Huntsville, AL.
that was when Navistar was trying to claim their engines did not "need" to use DEF to meet more stringent anti-pollution standards, and I think the EPA finally made them go to that technology, like Cummins did, which MAY be one of the reasons they are no longer made (I think
). "I think" is used because I'm not SURE of my facts.
