To expand on my above thread....

I have a 2008 Berkshire I Just purchased in Florida and I'm driving it home to Texas.... It seems that the compressor is coming on and running a minute or so really really often... The gauge fluctuates from just below 25 up to about 35.... Not being familiar with an air break system, I don't know if this is normal or not....

Any sage advice would be greatly appreciated..

Are you referring to the compressor or the turbo? The turbo is the gauge on your left. If your air pressure was down to 35 or lower you would be getting a very annoying warning noise.

Yes, I'm talking about the gauge on the left... I guess it's the turbo after all... Shows I still have a lot to learn about all the gauges.... Thanks for your help...

Ernest,

You might want to look into Camp Freightliner in Gaffney, SC. My wife and I went to when we bought our rig and it is great. Best $150 I could have spent on my rig. We knew nothing of diesels when we got ours so it was great info and the perfect introduction to the care and feeding of our beasts.

as long as your using power or needing power the gauge will be high .. go down a hill it should drop to 0.
it will fluctuate with power demand .

Sorry to appear so slow on this - learning curve going on here... Just want to make sure it's performing correctly.... And I guess it is...

sounds to me like it is ! your actual air compressor gauge should have within the gauge a red pointer and a white pointer . and go as low as about 90 to 100 and up to about 120 125 .
