Maybe since it's rv related this wouldn't fly but what about contacting NHTSA. I can't think of anything more related to highway and safety and not just ours but all the other motorists on the road. Perhaps that would get FL moving? Just a thought.

Someone pointed out that the NHTSA wouldn't get involved until a related fatality happened. However, there is an RV industry safety group that may be worth contacting. RV Safety & Education Foundation

Did you try my advise? Contact Cummins Diesel directly?

Even if FL found something, they would refer it back to Cummins anyway for a solution.

As I mentioned before, I drove semi's for many, many years. Engine problems can be as simple as a loose wire connection.

Freightliner replaced 4 injectors in my truck, under warranty, when it was decided to replace the one they had just replaced several months prior I mentioned they were just throwing parts at a continuing problem. They ended up replacing the wiring harness on the engine .. problem solved, (But I did get several new injectors)

The worst thing that can happen for an owner, or the technician working on it is, 'I have an electrical problem, but it's NOT acting up now." I have spent hundreds of dollars chasing a light failure on a unit. I didn't like to, but the technician can't work for free.

All that said, your issues is not an aggravation, it could kill you and anyone else in the coach, and potentially take innocent other motorist's with it.

Why not take an additional moment and contact Cummins?

And of course, those logs are completely "locked up" so i couldn't do it myself with a $25 tool from NAPA, right??

Bill,
I said the same to the tech at the Freightliner help line and he said that unless you get a check engine light, no codes would be set. Not sure why that is but that is what he told me.

What Cummins engine do you have?

Here is a link to understanding them, (however, be fore warned even though you may identify a code #, there are sub numbers under that one, which only the computer link can know.)

Cummins Codes - Fault codes by engine model.

You may gain some insight at this link ...

340HP . I'm told that unless there is a "check engine" light, then no codes can be read. I believe the ECM of which you're referring is back on/near the engine itself.

I've been talking about the dash board "magic box" up in front of the driver.

Have not called Cummins yet; waiting to find out what Tom comes up with.

But thanks for your insights as a hugely experienced user of this stuff.

I'd suggest sending a detailed certified return receipt letter to Freightliner. You then have essentially put them on notice. Their In house legal counsel should advise them to look into the issue and send you a response. Just my .02 cents
