    I just bought a used motorhome on a 2008 5500 Kodiak chassis. The duramax diesel is new to me, my previous experiences have been with Powerstrokes. I figured I would introduce myself and start by asking for input from those of you who have experience with the Duramax can offer. I haven't taken delivery of the vehicle yet, but when I do, I know I will be asking some questions and reading through several of the previous posts. My first question, most engines have known weak points, I have heard only good things about the duramax, but is there anything I need to look into / watch out for? Like I said, I plan to do some digging and researching on this forum, so if this is already covered, probably is, point me to the thread. Thank you.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I hope to add more pictures soon. I won't take delivery until Feb 9th, so I will try to add pictures shortly to my album soon after that date.

    Welcome to the G M T C ! Good luck with your new motor home. I got the 8.1 V8 in mine and it would have been better with the Duramax.
