Here is an article sent to me via e-mail from Advanced RV in their online newsletter. I think it is good advice, but I have a couple of questions about it.
First, here is the link: http://www.advanced-rv.com/best-practic ... dium=email
I am probably a bit more conservative than most, but for a Sprinter, is it really O.K. to travel at 90% of the redline when going down hills? I think we try to keep it at 80% or less.
Also, is it really true that you can't downshift if it would cause your engine to overrev? Mike, the owner of Advanced, is a good guy, and he undoubtedly knows what he is writing about, but I think the article was written by someone else and was targeted to the Class A market.
