The coach was damaged by the tow company. They are working with CoachNet to recover damage cost from tow company.
Just wanted to add this data into the mix of conversation on these Def Heads.
It is sad they have engineered these engines to the point they are now junk.
I run a diesel fleet and our biggest issue is DEF and DPF failures.
I read this post and it makes me sad for these owners.
Life is short and my time spent with family is too important to me.
I do not want to spend days and or even weeks waiting for parts.
My friends always ask why I have not switched to a diesel powered MH
All of the problems I have running our diesel powered fleet has convinced me to stick with a gas MH.
I hope they get the damage problem resolved to their satisfaction.
I have had many of our trucks damaged by towing.
They do not pay us maybe your friends will have better luck.
