Access to Forum from DRVC’s Website Simplified
With a keen awareness that today’s internet user has grown used to instantaneous response when searching for an answer, Ken Carpenter has worked to provide one-click access from Diesel RV Club’s forum page to a topical area of the Forum. The implementation is a time-saver look
for a particular area of interest. To add to the ease of use and enhance the look and feel, Byron Songer developed a series of icons that present a cohesive look. The icons are presented above. The linked areas are described below.
AIR DELIVERY SYSTEMS: All about your air intake system–from the side or rear of the coach, air filter, turbo, CAC and plumbing.
COOLING SYSTEMS: All about your cooling system–water pump, thermostat(s), coolant and coolant testing, recom- mended maintenance, cleaning the CAC and radiator, etc.
DRIVING & OPERATIONAL: The “how-to” of driving a diesel pusher. How to improve MPG, how to climb and descend a grade, recommended engine warm-up and shut down, etc.
ENGINE DIAGNOSTICS: Modern Engine Diagnostics use a standardized, digital communications port to provide realtime data in addition to a standardized series of diag- nostic trouble codes, or DTCs, which allow one to rapidly identify and remedy malfunctions within the vehicle. These and other Engine Diagnostics topics are listed here.
