double check the fuel temp sensor and limiters as well. ive seen those mess with guys if the fuel temp sensor is being screwy.

I looked for some but didn’t see any. I’ll go back and look harder. The truck is lacking a fuel cooler too…

just watch your fuel temp. iirc its 220* and up it starts to pull back power but if the sensor is doing weird things and spiking, then dropping back to actual, i could see it doing what your seeing.

EDIT: B1011 is the table for the fuel temp to rail pressure so it will pull back max rail, not MM3 like i was thinking.

Well this old trailer has seen a hard life and it only got harder the last month or so. Found a good deal on railroad ties, just had to disassemble the wall they created. She’s WAY overloaded here. Tractor is 4600lbs with all the attachments (not including tire ballast, no idea how much water they have) and 20 ties. There are two broke main deck boards, tail lights need a re-fresh, wiring likes to disconnect ans reconnect while drivin (warning on the dash keeps comin up), and tongue jack is about worn out. I think it’s about time to do a full re-fresh on her and upgrade it. She’s been rode hard and put away wet a hell of a lot since 05

Pricing is fricken nuts on trailers. Can’t find used and new ones are 7-10k for a “cheap” decent 10k gvwr one. So I’m going to up-rate this one. Put some 5200lbs axles under it, change springs, upgrade the crossmembers, change the hitch to a 2 5/16, possibly add more brace to the tongue channel and main long channel, fix the wiring, add some jacks to the back for loading and unloading and new wood. Should be all in for around 2500 bucks. I sold my old trailer for what this one cost me a few years ago so I’m money ahead with it.

You know, because I need another project in my life .

I don’t blame you for just upgrading the trailer you have. If you think I’m about to pay 20k for a damn gooseneck you are sorely mistaken. Thanks RONA

Just some of the stuff i haul around. only haul this heavy crap when i absolutely have to or doing a project solo. I do Facility maintenance on pads in the patch. Majority lease roads so dont sweat DOT too much. lol

thats a triple tandem 40' deck gooseneck (8K?)and the equipment weighs 23.5k for the manlift and 26k for the telehandler.....plus my truck which was at 13k in these pictures. In all honesty, it hauls extremely well for the amount of weight. hauls even better now with the emissions being permanently fixed.
