I am sorry for your troubles. I DO assume you meant that you purchased diesel since this is a diesel engine. Out of habit, when I drive a diesel truck that I own, I have to be careful when I fuel the tanks. Hope all improves with your situation soon.

Exclamation We made it a mile

LOL that has me Chuckling... Yep we put diesel in her..

OK so I just talked to the tranny shop and they said that the transmission is fine if just a bit overheated from what is happening.......
So this happened to them too.. they were Test driving the MH when the brakes decided to lock down on the MH.. they had to have a tech come out and let the pressure off the brakes so they could move the MH.... They are saying that there is something messed up with the throttle linkage and the brakes......
So I don't know....... any thoughts??

I am so sorry you are having problems! I don't know of anything to help with your current situation, but just wanted to pass along one bit of info about silicon brake fluid. It does not absorb water like regular brake fluid does, but that does NOT mean water does not get into the brake system. It still does (condensation more than anything), and pools in the low parts of the lines/reservoirs. It can cause rust by doing this, so the earlier poster who spoke about changing fluid every two years is doing a good thing.

Just FYI!
