Boost pressure is the same as always.  It was the first thing I looked at on my Silverleaf when I was seeing problems.  The 11.1L Series 60 doesn't have much boost.

A DDEC will not make any change in oil pressure.  It may not read the correct pressure.

The current Prevost installation method is to draw a generous bead around the frame and seat the window into that bead.

Bead of Sikaflex or silicone?

The current Prevost installation method is to draw a generous bead around the frame and seat the window into that bead. Trim off the excess that gets oozed out after it sets.

Then around the entire perimeter which should be equal all the way around, fill with a bead of Sikaflex. I use masking tape to keep it off the window frame. Smooth the bead around the glass and the frame. If the glass was not masked use a razor to scrape the excess.

FWIW the Sikaflex flows a lot easier if it is a little warm.

Yep, leaf springs.  Those long heavy springie steel thingies that look kinda like ... well you know ... leaves.  Definitely NOT those funny dinky nerdy fake dumb silly not cool coil thingies that collapse and go boink without good shocks. 

You know what I mean.  One reason out of many why my old Crown Supercoach 40 foot 10 wheeler handled so good including running her right onto and over the hard sand beach at Crescent City National Park in Cal.  Try that!  HB Smiley Smiley

Once on top, she planned like a dirt bike.  A little bit touchy slowing down and turning around.  I hate being crazy. Smiley

My understanding is that Allison has to sign off on 6th gear enable. I have programming authority, But I'd have to contact HQ for the enable code. When that TCM was programmed they might have fudged on the vehicle application.

They are pointing to DDEC, so they got another one to try.

I found new double pane windows to replace the foggy ones. I currently have the drivers window out. There's 4 pieces of metal molding around the exterior edges of the glass, held by about 5 screws each side. Then the glass itself was surrounded on each side by a plastic edge. This plastic edge makes the window about 1/4-1/2" thicker and I think provides some cushion. Otherwise it would be glass on metal frame. Lots of silicone/sealant to be cleaned out.

The door window came with a new plastic surround, but the driver window did not, so I had to clean off the old set.

OK, question is:  Do I want o put Sikalflex between every layer?

For example, Sikaflex between metal frame and plastic surround, AND between plastic surround and glass pane? Or do I want to use some other type of weather stripping on one/some of the sides? Seems like they had a thin layer of foam like you would use to seal a house window on some sides, but have been a patch by the PO and not from Prevost that way.

There is about a 1/2" space at the top of the glass, between the glass and the bus window frame. This space is covered by the metal exterior trim (screws on), but what should I use to fill that gap? Does it matter?
Thanks for your help!

 The only setting in the ecm for cruise is where it drops out and max speed that you can set.  

That's not right Jack there are a lot more than 2 functions.I guess it could depend on the version on the software but mine will let you set the min and max speeds for the cruise,enable the VSS,set the number of teeth on the VSS,tire revolutions,drive line ratio,transmission final ratio,pulses per mile and top end speed limit,then when you are done you go into the Allison to finalize the process.The VSS is a Oem sensor (vehicle speed limiting) that most used like Eagle and Dina when 6th gear was locked out fwiw

The "caulking" version is not really sprayable. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away I used to spray urethane insulation. What we used back then is not allowed today. It was in the neighboorhood of 2lb density. I just had my coach insulated and the stuff available in Canada is pretty much the same as the US but coloured blue to signify compliance with Canadian regs. However if one were to feel the need to take out their frustrations by punching this stuff I think they would break the hand. Wow is it solid!
There are "Froth Paks" available from building supply houses that are supposed to be sprayable but I think they are a little pricey. Don't know how well they work. You will definitely want to do some serious masking as the overspray can travel a couple of hundred yards. Ask me about detailing 48 cars years ago.... Sad

Best to do it inside with proper setup. If there is an insulation company that has any large bays for doing semi trailers, that would be the place to go visit. The wheels have to come off to do a proper job, so you can realize your price is starting to climb.
