The engine manufacturer is Cummins not Cummings

Curious what year and engine your Ford was. I had my 2012 F350 6.7 for 10 years and it was in the shop one time for a repair, a failed high exhaust gas temp sensor.

My 08 6.4 Ford tuned with over 600 HP has been in the shop one time because a mouse dined on the automatic climate control. Is it as nice as the new trucks? Oh heck no? Will it put a camper? Yep.

Yeah, had a 2007 F350 6.0 before the 2012. Squirrels (I think) ate my wiring and vacuum hoses. 3 times to the tune of about $400 each time! And built a nest each time. Critter Ridder spray finally stopped that.

Other than that it was only in for repair one time in 5 years, a failed cam sensor. And it towed the Monte great.

IF YOU ARE HAVING ELECTRIC Problems, as in more than one, I'd start looking for a loose ground. A low battery will also show.lights on the dash. LOOSE connections at ecm. The chance that you have many electrical issues are slim to none.

We have a Ram because I believe in the in line 6 Cummins. It's a simpler design that will last forever if you take care of it. Every 18 wheeler has an in line 6 just bigger. I'm sure the Ford/Chevy/GMC trucks run just fine but my 2016 Laramie is quite a nice truck. The only thing I don't like about it is those damn mirrors.

Sorry if this is a sidebar question; your logs look like you are recording fuel mileage for 100% of your miles. What % is towing and what % is empty?

Thanks!
