If you need, feel free to tell them that at least one other person (me) has experienced the isssue. Plus, I'll probably contact Randy directly.

Boowho??

Hey I have no fancy motor home but I do have a pontiac solstice that "could" shut off for no reason because of the key falling out of the switch or maybe it wont fall out but the car could still shut off..... AND you know how big a recall that is !

I would get the ball rolling with the NTSB A>S>A>P !
This could be a safety HAZARD !

all it takes is a complaint and then another and then another till that little snowball is the size of well a freight-liner !

I don't think that the NTSB will get involved until there is an accident of some sort caused by the problem. That is what i was told when I tried going that route when there was an issue with the fan hub falling off the engine because the bolts used to hold it on were too short and not strong enough to withstand the torque.

This is what randy got from freight liner ...

Randy ,
Sounds like the dash lost power or data. Could be a loose connection at the back of the lightbar like the last one we dealt with. The dash not operating will cause nothing detrimental to happen to the coach.

Poppycock!!!! When the engine stops mid-trip on the highway, THAT could certainly be detrimental, no? Was Randy aware that your engine had stopped running (if it did)?

I'm taking mine to a FL dealer early next month. Will post any/all info I get then.

Boowho??

I'm not sure if my engine stopped. It happened so quickly and for such a short period of time that I was sort of stunned and didn't notice if the engine stopped. Hopefully it won't happen again but if it does, I will need to be more aware of what is going on at the time of the problem.

I have a 2014 390 Berkshire an this has happen to me twice and I have been told the
same thing. You would think they could plug in to engine and see what is going on, when you are going down the road at 60 or 65 this is no fun.

Another LA guy, I knew we had a few on the road.

Welcome to the forum. I haven't had this happen to me yet and I hope it never does. But it does seem like it's common.
