When did you submit your claim? I had the work done and submitted in January and I am still *patiently* waiting.

Thanks. Since you both submitted about a year ago I guess I need to continue to be patient .

Also, make sure you go to the settlement website and carefully look at the checklist of docs you need. I forgot to sign one and had to resubmit ...

Did they notify you of the missing signature? They say they will review and let you know if there is an issue. I never signed anything as I completed the process online instead of mailing the paperwork.

To those of you who have had the work done (replace/update the module, right?), have you run enough miles to notice any difference in performance/fuel economy after the update? Just hesitant to mess with it - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mentality here... Thanks! ST

No noticeable difference for me on my 2016 chassis. Possibly a bit more Def usage but not enough to be certain.

No differences with my 2016 Winnebago Era.

More DEF usage - about 1000 mpg now, used to be about 1400. Fuel mileage about the same as before, 13 when towing my Jeep, 15 when not towing. It's my understanding that part of the settlement was to compensate owners for the increase in DEF usage.

Thanks, guys. I had the rear wheel speed sensors done, but not the emissions recall - guess that's in the future now! ST

I submitted my claim last August (2021) and received a check for the full amount last December (2021).

You are right to be cautious. I have a 2014 4cly and since the repair work I am using more DEF. 2 1/2 gals would last around 4500 miles before recall. It's erratic now and I may only get 2500 miles. I have only drove 15000 miles since the recall so I'm still monitoring.
I think the fuel consumption is down too. I say think because pre recall there would be times I would get a mpg of 25+ at some fills. Not since the recall. My overall average now is about 22 mpg which is a little lower than the before average.
it's not a lot to complain about, but I am an iRV2 er and I want things to get better not worse.
