Wanted to post an update on our 'check engine' saga. Our whole problem was caused by 'dirt daubers' or you may know them as 'mud daubers'. They had managed to build a nest completely around a tube having something to do with the fuel injection system. There was actually nothing wrong with the engine or the injection system once the nest was removed and everything was steam cleaned. I don't know if other states deal with these pesky, destructive little insects or not; but here in Texas it is a constant battle. This one just outsmarted us.

The service manager at Dallas Freightliner/Sprinter was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We picked our mh up today and it seems to be doing fine. However, the work was not covered under the warranty because of the dirt daubers so we had to pay the repair bill...the worst part though was that we also had to pay the towing fee which was outrageous. Since our selling dealership was the one that insisted it be towed and not driven to Freightliner, they are 'checking' to see if they can work with us on the towing fee.

All Forest River units come with Coachnet for the first year. You should be able to turn that it if it's still in that time frame.
