Yes, I was surprised to see this from FR.
Thanks again for discovering this and posting. I would have went into some kind of a titherdither if this had been discovered on the road with some service being required. At most Cummins dealers, labor is 150/hr. or so, and I would not like to be paying for someone to deal with that rather than working on our engine. Fixed mine today, totally copied what you did. I would love to have coffee with the wiring tech. at FR and just ask why the hell would anyone run wires right across the engine hatch. I would just love to hear what's up.
I am happy with the design of the hatch and ease of removal, etc. I have friends with very high end coaches that have to dismantle closets and cabinets to even get to theirs.
I even cleaned my engine while I was at it, getting ready to some major summer travel.
