    Thanks Rod. Now like Hollis my head is really spinning. :) This printout has no codes other then what I posted. I copied it right off the readout. Know it's not the best. Going to show it to the fella at the truck shop today and see what he says. One thing it did say was to check the wiring to the sensor. That may be a good place to start. When we parked it after our last trip. We had it serviced (oil changed, ect. ). Will see, think the light is a gremlin. Noticed the rear camera cotrast is fading in and out.

    crawl under it and see if any connection are loose. OK since you had it service, go look and see if any wires was knocked loose. I change my own oil and filters, this way I can look around and see if everything is OK, or at least looks OK.

    Shadow the knock sensor should be on the side of the engine, Right side if my memory serves me but dont count on it LOL. They may have knocked the wire loose while servicing it. Have yo heard the valves pinging? I even had a loose fan belt set a knock sensor code but was on earlier model than yours. Its not that hard to diagnos by someone that has the proper equipment and knowledge to use it. Shotgun method of replacing parts till you get it is to expensive so find a good tech that can help you. good luck and keep us posted. the days of guessing are gone. Dang electronics but when they work they are great. Now if it was a model before 1981 I could probably tell you whats wrong. LOL

    Hollis I crawled under it so many times the Mrs. thinks I'm hiding money under it somwhere! :) Thanks Chelse, the truck shop didn't pan out. All of a sudden their not interested in working on it. Good news is I have a fella coming to the house to run the codes and give it a look over. The knock sensor cost about twelve bucks each. Going to put a new gas cap on also just for grins.

    First off let me thank everyone for their help and advice on this thread. Seems like the ole girl decided to fix herself. My buddy was real busy this morning so he asked if I could bring the M/H to his shop. It's about a 15 mile drive. About half way there, the check engine light went out. First thought, great problem solved. Second thought, maybe the light burned out! :) Well anyway he checked it for codes. ( he had one like Rod talked about, real time.) It showed no codes. So he did a history and it did show that it had a code on the knock sensor. But no codes now. He thinks maybe it was the gas that set it off. Told me to run it below half and top her off. Any way thanks again guys. Look out Chelse, will be looking for ya this summer! ;)

    so glad you got that fixed. see you on the road. If you looking for Chelse wish you luck, he moves around alot CG to CG state to state. I am hoping to find him late summer in Paul Grist state park. It seem he likes that CG, or the fishing there.
