A lot has happened since I last posted. My daughter got the truck back and after almost $6000* it still wouldn't pull a hill even without the camper. They said there was nothing else they could do with it. They said she could drive it home (about 650 miles) but if it started to bog down to pull over and stop, push in the clutch and turn off the ignition, start it back up and rev it up a few times with the clutch in and it would run good for a couple more hours and then do this again if it starts to loose power???????. So they decided to have the truck and camper towed back home, another $1500. My son-in-law is working in Florida and will be for another month. He's 'stuck' there because he is the Superintendant on a nuclear plant shut down working 7-12's
Thanks for the reply auggie.
Edit: they kept the turbo because they installed a rebuilt turbo and said it would be $700 core charge. This dealer is in Jellico, Tennessee.
Edit:*it was actually $5200
