    Being in Arizona we fight overheating all the time. We flush out the radiators on a monthly basis. Only using low flow, no pressure so we do not damage the fins. For what its worth, same goes for the a/c condensers.

    Sweeper curtains

    We use our book time of 4 hours. That is R&R head, change curtains and adjust. I do not think we ever beat 3 because something is always bent

    Broom Bear will not increase RPM

    I wanted to give you an update as to what the problem was. The freightliner dealer that said it was never connected was wrong. I guess they just wanted it to go away. with help from our Elgin dealer, we took it to another frightliner dealer and they found bad connectors at the TCU (the ones that supposedly were not there. After replacing them, still did not work. They asked if we could bring in another sweeper to compare but we only have the one, so that was not happening Supposedly the PTO switch sends signal to the Transmission control unit (TCU) and that sends to the engine control unit (ECU). My tec remembered that the cruise control did not work and it occurred that that too was controlled by the ECU. So we had them check something they were more familiar with and what do you know, the perimeters on the ECU were wrong. Fix the cruise and the PTO works. We had them print us out the parameters for the ECU

    2018 Peterbilt P348

    I know that most any newer vehicle will always have a draw from the computers. I also know that some manufactures have a dedicated location for add on electronics. Adding them to an existing circuit can cause electrical gremlins. We have run into that issue where the change in voltage caused a check engine light. It was not a perterbuilt, but a freightliner. Use a DVOM and see what the draw is when you think everything is off. Secondly a trickle charger can help keep the batteries alive.
