I was told that there was no way to adjust the rear. What did they adjust?

It's a job time wise but involves no special tools or jigs. The cost is in the hourly labor rate mostly. A reman clutch is under a hundred bicks.



You can actually so it in your driveway, no special skill required (othey than a lot of time.



Motor homes, especially diesel pushers are generally a royal PITA to work on, consequently owners get to pay big bucks for mundane tasks.



In our shop, which is a factory authorized Freightliner franchise, we have 2 labor rates. One rate (lower) for Freightliner trucks and another (higher) for Motorhomes with FTL chassis. Interesting, we are always backed up, winter and summer.



I just saw a Berkshire pulling in when I was leaving the shop yesterday....

Super c for the win.

They have to cut the welds to adjust a rear axle and then re-weld it back. Very costly

Wow that would be expensive. I would think FL would cover something like that.
