I guess my running board lights had just "timed out" becasue this AM they were on and perfect when I opened the door.  I would have thought they would work the same as the two bullet lights on the ceiling but I guess they don't.   Thanks

There is no filter on the 4.0 Onan.  Sump does not hold much oil either. Easy job to be honest.  Best of luck.  Thanks

All going well with my new 3100, getting it packed, taking care of a few squeaks.  Only issue I have yet to resolve is the running board lights, neither of them light regardless of which door is opened, not sure where they are fused, anyone have any ideas?  I could call Kermit but new you folks would have the answer  Thanks

The new baby (3100) arrived here in NH this AM safe and sound with the help of Kraig Fisher!  The cafe color is absolutely beautiful!  Have alot to do to get her packed up and so many more places to put stuff.  It is always sad to see the old coach go out the driveway for the last time but it is going to new owners in PA and I know they are getting one super clean well maintained 2010 2551S and hopefully we will see them posting up on this forum.   Thanks

Sure sounds like you have your near future planned out!!!  I would love to come along with you since everyone of your trips sound very interesting to say the least.  I am afraid I have a few more years before I can hit the road for extended periods of time.  In the mean time I will keep dreaming and in spirit riding along with you.  Looks like Kraig will be delivering the 3100 here to NH tomorrow!   Thanks

We are very excited about the 3100 coming.  Having come down from 38' the 2551 was super coach but just a little "short" in few key areas; the 3100 should be perfect for what we want.  How does the 218" wheelbase mangae towing a four down toad?  Is the ride betterthan say your 2900?  Thanks

It is my understanding that 362 HP V-10 will never make it into and E-cutaway chassis; it is all about the heat,  period; the engine bay is just to small to get rid of the heat build up and therefore the smaller rated V-10.  Thanks

Just closed the deal with Stuart to trade my 2010 2551S for a new 3100!  If anyone is looking for a pefect inside and out 2551S with 13,000 mile on it this is your coach.  She is completely loaded with full paint (umber) dual pain windows, jacks, air sofa and premium package.  Had the Tom-Tom nav. sysytem but hated it and had the Sony rear camera  system installed at the factory.  No major issues with either the coach or chassis.  The 3100 is coming out of the paint shop this week so I am guessing I will have the new coach sometime over the first week of May and the 2551 will be heading back to IN.  Give Stuart a call if you have been waiting for a nice 2551S.  Thanks

Gradygal is right on the money, atleast when it comes to 2010 E-450's.  I got two Ford fobs and went thru all the instrcutions in the book and had no luck.  Took it to Ford and they looked up the line (build) sheet and it specifically states that the keyless capability was not installed.  Ford recommended and aftermarket sysytem that they use in such applications, I did not go with it but the fobs looked just like the Ford OEM ones. There was talk that someone had their E-450 programmed before it left the PC factory by someone from Ford in Elkhart.  My dealer said they did not have the capabilities to get into the control module and make the software additions.  I am hoping the 2012's have the capability to have remote locks.  Thanks

I truly think the idle issue has run out of fuel at this time!!  My last point to make is that the 3.0L has a very complicated intake system that all evolves around a very small swirl valve that  entails a little electric motor and valve system to keep everything moving in the intake area.  Over time it gets gummed to the point the valve does not work any longer and it sets off all the check engine, throttle body lights.  excess idling and oil that blows by (diesels all blow oil by) are the two causes of the failure.  My nephews 08 3.0L with 42,000 miles just had to have the valve replaced to the tune of $2962.00, his extended drive trian warranty did not cover the cost.  The dealer stated that many Sprinter based 3.0L have this issue, one had two before 100,000 miles.  The 3.0L is one tough engine that likes to be driven and driven hard on the highway everyday that is when you will see the 250,000 miles with little trouble.   Again, the engine does not like to be idled and it can get very costly to do so.  Thanks.

I would check the slide on spade fitting that goes into the right side bottom of the door button switch, might have some corrosion on it or the ground terminal is corroded.  Best of luck.

You sure appear to have a handle on all the answers now.  i would just bite the bullet and place a deposit on a PC first thing in the morning!  I might suggest that you not take the Sprinter to Mel's shop for service for there is just something bothersome about a service manager who things he knows more than the engineers, especially German enginners.  Oh yes, did anyone tell you about the urea tank on the new Sprinters that need service at every oil change?  best of luck.
