RV Daily Tips Issue 520. December 3, 2014 | RV Travel

Sorry to all those people who might complain about a diesel running but you must read this;

High idle is necessary to warm up a diesel engine
Diesel engines don’t warm up at “normal” idle speed — they must be run at a “fast idle” to generate heat. Check with your dealer or the manual for how to access your fast-idle speed.

 Many coaches use the following technique: As soon as you start the cold engine, gently and slowly increase the engine speed by depressing the accelerator pedal until you have reached the fast-idle rpm setting. Then engage your cruise control (press the button) and gently … slowly … let your foot off the pedal. Your engine should remain at the fast-idle rpm. (Some rigs may have a dash switch marked “IDLE INC/DEC” to activate high idle.) 

This is an excellent time to bring in slides, put the jacks up and finalize the last-minute details just before pulling out of the campsite. Thanks to Ron Jones. Get his RV books at AboutRVing.com.


About smokeycamping

Well let's see have lived in NY for my whole life, have always loved the outdoors (as long as it is warm out) have always hated the cold, and like a dummy have stayed in NY. But now with my second try my wife, we have been camping now for well over 25 yrs. We currently own a 2010 Cedar creek silverback 35TS and can not wait to get out on the highways and see this great country we all call home. Hope to see every National park before my medical issue becomes too bad to travel. I love my African gray parrot (she is my baby) and have two dogs at the time brother and sister mutts, but love them all the same. Have always been a big Nascar fan, love computers (have a number of certificates to build and work on them) am trying to learn photography, enjoy light hiking, being with good friends and folks. country music, pop music and just being outdoors. So I hope someday to meet some of the great people who like what I like and post out there in some great campground somewhere in the country, till then I will keep posting and I hope you keep liking.
