Just a darn funny story

So I have had my new Coachmen Prism 2200FS out for a few trips already...running like a champ - very happy.

Occasionally though, I would hear a whistling sound that I was not familiar with. Didn;t think too much of it as everything was running great, but thought I'd take it to Mercedes when I return to have it check out.

So I drop it off, explain what I am hearing and let them have at it.

The next day at noon, I get a message "Hay give us a call back".

So I return the call. "Hey everything checks out perfect, ran a few diagnostics, all checked out ok. Took it on the highway and ran it up to 70, ran perfect, no issues, turbo ran as expected. Also made a software update so you are current".

Wait, what? Turbo? I have a turbo charger?

"Uh....yes sir"

So that's the whistling sound I have been hearing?


How funny. No where in my docs had it shown that I had a turbo charger.....which is a pleasant surprise....and slightly embarrassing.

How funny
