They also make a remote manual shifter for these. A master unit at driver's area and a slave unit at tranny. Connects with two Morse cables. Fits all Roadrangers. Also if you use an RTO 9509 with the overdrive 13 speed rear section, you get a double overdrive with .63, .74, and .80. top three ratios.

Iíve never seen a marathon truck stop. But flying j and loves are our favorites. Flying j have dumps and water to fill our tank and are always rv friendly. Loves are just nice. Always have great experiences. T/A just lost my business. No more stopping or fueling there anymore.

We like Love's and Marathon stations across the country. Marathon had the best prices as well as propane and full dump stations. The guy came over and picked up our two LP tanks and took it over and filled them and then brought them back and put them in the coach for me while I was dumping the tanks.
We also stayed overnight with no problems in Truck side rest stops and many across the US had food and dump stations also.

I was at The TA in LV to fill up propane in a mounted tank and the woman who came out after awhile, said she was uncomfortable filling in an old tank, I told her she should read up on her rules, lvmci...

An overdrive 9 speed would also probably work, (power to weight ratio) and would be about 3.5 inches shorter?  May or may not make any difference with the drive shaft length.  Also that over drive would be slightly taller at about .73 or so?

My old Crown Supercoach had the RTO910.  One shift rod. Many grease zerts on the pillow bearings and a couple of U-joints.  Either the 13 or 9 would give you a high reverse necessary for those high speed reverse "boot legger 180's".

I don't know any details but I do know it's been done before more than once.

any one retro fit a 13 speed into an mc7. transmission swap is simple, what about the shifter modification? Had read somewhere of a modification to the shifter, although it may have to be backwards. Not a real problem for the benefit of the 13 speed.  Any info will be greatly appreciated. thanks.
