Lubrication System / Re: 99 Cummins 300 oil pressure guage

Spartan says it could be a Demux box, gauge or the connections. I'm looking into it.

I suspect the dash oil pressure gauge is a Spartan part, and may not even use a Cummins sender.

I would contact Spartan with your VIN and ask them how to diagnose a bad sender vs bad gauge.

I notice after the gauges do the dance the oil gauge stays at 40 before I start.

How to Post Topics and Replies / Re: interior trim

Does the interior trim around the sliders provide any structural advantage or is it just cosmetic. Our 2005 Bounder has ugly trim that I would like to remove if it won't cause any structural loss. Does anyone have experience with updating the interior of their MH? Thanks, Charlie.
On my 2003 they are just trim. Had one pop off because the seat was not far enough forward when I ran the slide in.

How to Guides / Re: turbo failure

No way to tell without seeing it. How often did you drive the coach? They don't like to just sit. I wonder if spraying down the gear with a good penetrating oil might free it up. With a little light taping with a big hammer. ;)
I bet they want to sell you a whole turbo because they can't get the parts separately.

I think you might better call Cummins tech support at  1-800-DIESELS

How to Guides / turbo failure
« Last post by Charlie/Susie on August 25, 2017, 12:01:39 PM »
 We have a 2005 FLEETWOOD Bounder w/ ISB5.9 HPCR. The turbo is a vg and was told the gear that changes the vane geometry seized up and the turbo needed to be replaced. I asked the cummins repair shop what caused the seize up and they could not give me any reason. Every question I asked was answered " I don't know". Does anyone know of any reason that would cause the gear to seize up?  HELP these things are not cheap.

I would think if the sender was erratic there would be a check engine light or some other alert.
