It is great that we have the LBCU with all the data available but it is surprisingly difficult to find out what maximum temps are allowed. There is a warning about not shutting down when engine temp is over 194 but other than that info seems lacking. With this hotter weather I have been paying more attention to temps although have not driven much. Seems as though thermostat does not kick in until engine temp hits 195 and it has gone over 200 a few times before dropping back to 190.

Don't know what max allowable transmission temp is.

Anyone have a better source of information?

Hope this helps?
You are so right! Thanks for the reminder.

One other noisy problem I encountered on our trip was very squeaky brakes. I'm going to have some service done on our unit within a week or two so I'll have them look at the brakes too.

Hey, question, has anyone else had their fresh water tank shift? I was cleaning the RV tonight, opened the storage bin that holds the fresh water tank (where I keep the cleaning items) and I noticed that the black plastic panel was loose on one side. I pulled it back and realized the whole tank had shifted toward the door, with the piece of wood, which appears to hold it in place, no longer attached to the floor. I pushed the tank back in place and then sealed it to the floor (for extra re-enforcement). I then looked at the block and the screws barely reached through to attach to the floor. I used a couple of longer screws and remounted. Hopefully, this does not repeat.

I took my black panel off early on and leave it off. Lots easier to tell when tank is full and how much is in it. Mine hasn't moved but very little keeping it from it. Got a little more storage without the panel

That makes sense to remove to easily check status. I suppose it was to keep things from shifting in the storage area and finding its way somewhere hard to reach.

I store my DEF and oil in there. It doesn't shift. I keep a couple Winnie roast sticks over the top of the pump. Works well for me.

I cut a 1" wide strip out using a jig saw that runs from top to bottom of the black panel. I left an inch of material top and bottom so the panel is still one piece. This way it works like a sight glass and I can check the water level but still keep the panel in place. I wanted to keep the panel since I don't want anything rubbing the water tank and eventually wearing a hole in it.
