Default Auto sleeper Symbol 2008

Been hearing about the six speed gearing of Motorhomes like the Trigano Tribune and the Fiat 2.3 engine, having a serious judder when reversing up hill. I gather the problem is that 1st and reverse gear ratio is too high. Has any member come across this with the 2.2 Peugeot Based motorhome like mine?

Keep you boot off the gas pedal and let it do its own thing.

Going forward let the clutch out and then give it the gas, going backwards just leave it alone basically.

Peter, no disrespect, I hold a class 1 HGV. A PCV and IAM in both. Apart from that I was a Commercial Driving instructor. I know how to drive.

The question was, is my Auto sleeper 2.2 subject to this problem as I pick it up from the dealer on Wednesday?

I assumed and I'm sure anyone else reading it would think the same, from your original posting that you were having similar problems but it appears you are looking for problems before you even take delivery. I am sure Peter wasn't trying to teach you to suck eggs.

Then you will be an ideal person to test it.

Throughout the whole Judderagte fiasco some doubt can be cast on the driver.

Then some people rarely reverse.

Then it seems very dependent on the particular vehicle. Same model, some say "no problem" others get the reverse gear changed.

Not long now and you can find out the hard way and speak on the results with some authority.

What you don't say is new/second hand. If brand new maybe you get the correct reverse ratio with it, or maybe it's an old chassis with the high one.

You can google "juddergate" for a mass of hits.
