Reading this thread, I have three questions about my rig with the Cummins ISB 340HP engine. Do I have an engine heater and if so, where is the control located for me to turn it on and off? Also, mention has been made of an air tank and that it should be drained. Where is the air tank and how does one drain the tank? Last question, can you control the air pressure when you use the auxiliary air chuck in the generator compartment?

A block heater?
If so there is no "on/off switch that I am aware of, you just plug them in.

Yes you can control the air pressure with an inline regulator be it preset or an adjustable one the call is yours.

The air tank drain valve will most likely be underneath the unit, may be a 1/4 turn valve or one like this.

Richard the block heater is located in the most rear compartment on the DS. There's no switch, just plug it into the receptical in that compartment.

I'm not sure where the air tank is but in the two front wheel wells there's cables that can be pulled to bleed the air system.

The air chuck has the same pressure as the whole system. You would need to rig up some kind of regulator on that chuck to regulate it.

1.) Engine block heater plug is usually in electric lead in compartment, A socket usually is in the same compartment for use with 110 operating (either plugged in or on genny). You can also use a separate extension cord. 2.) there are three reservoir tanks, two lanyards behind passenger front tire above the frame, front and rear of the tire, one lanyard on drivers side, 3.) You can purchase an air pressure regulator and plug it in before an air hose from the disconnect in the generator compartment.

Richard, if you are filling your tires, it is not a good idea to use as regulator. It will take you forever to raise the pressure in as tire with a regulator. Actually, the higher the source pressure is the better. You do need to check the pressure with a gauge periodically as you fill and there are some air chucks with a build-in gauge.

The block heater is as stated in previous post. Under the bed there is also a breaker fuse that you can flip off and that will cut the electric power to the plug in the rear basement compartment.
