    Hi guys,

    Just had the Motorhome WOW'd, appears to be better in low gears at low speed, time will tell on a motorway, appears good though, will update once a long trip has been completed.

    Reason for my post, the Motorhome is 2003. 2.8 jtd. It has always made a noise at low rpm in 4th and 5th gear around 2000 rpm in 5th or 3000 in 4th if I put my foot down I get a struggling noise, it almost sounds like the motor is trying to gulp air through the filter, a drawing air noise. It could be something else though not sure. Would I expect to hear the motor struggle at low rpm when applying the pedal, which would require more torque at low rpm?

    It's not the clutch slipping as all is well through the gear range, if I get the motor over 3000 prm in 5th all is well. The tuneing has made a difference to the drivability of the Motorhome though.

    Any thoughts? :thumb:
