    HI, if you take it into a fuel injection engineer, they should be able to do some callabration tests and tell you what there is is wrong ,:thumb:

    You could also try asking on our sister site RVOC which is dedicated to American motorhomes..

    To cast your net further, ask on one of the largest RV forums in America .. RV.Net

    Depending on the spec used in your RV this engine was rated at between 305 and 450 brake horsepower. Given that the stock power for the 6.5 turbo diesel used in the P30 chassis was around 195 (with more torque?) you should have plenty of power unless there is something wrong.

    You could try to get some idea of MPG and ask on RVOC if that is what would be expected or, as above, get some friendly technician to have a look.
