Here's a pretty good explanation of how a dryer functions and why.

Guess I was not  clear before.  Your bus did not come from the factory with an air dryer, (they may not have even been invented yet when your bus was built).  You can install one if you like, but an '04 will do fine without one, just remember to drain your tanks.  If you really have nothing else to do, and can find the space you can install one.

John L,

Sorry to be so late but I've been away from any computer since the first of Sep, it was actually kind of nice!! We just returned from a 5000 mi trip to Seattle and back from AR.

It appears to me you have a great buy and I know you'll enjoy it in the coming years. There will be times of frustration but it is well worth it.

We usually come through Riverside every spring on our way to Seattle from San Diego, maybe we will stop by to see how you are doing. This year was an exception.

If you have any 4104 specific questions feel free to email me although johns4104s and some others are the real 4104 experts.



johns4104s,

Good to know that Sheppard is no better than the stock boosted steering, now I won't be lusting after Sheppard any more!!

Are you back from AZ yet?

I have two 4104's.  one with power assist   and one with full time.

Believe me there is a big difference.

Yes both systems are in good shape.The power assist still has the big wheel and has a little play. Has all new joints and front steering components.It stills seems like it takes constant correction to keep it going straight.

The full time has a small wheel ,tilt wheel and finger tip steering. No wander going down the road. Trucks and other big vehicles do not make it wander.

a pleasure to drive.

ps may just be getting old and lazy but i like the auto also

I could really use 3 window handles.  The ones that are on the inside that lock.  Do I need to put a picture up?  Anyone have any idea where to get them?

Ned,

Thanks, I've heard this is a good combination. Did it come from a transit?

   Yes I like the combination but if i were doing it now I would find a transit with a series 50 and a zf or the reversing allison.

Jack Campbell has used them in his eagle and his son Jerry's mci.

Makes a great combo and does not have the heat problems that a hot 6v92.

Have saw several on auction in last little bit.

love my 04  it goes where a lot of 40 footers can not,national parks and the like.

getting ready for bk's if i can get across the mountains.
