LHN...We ARE the Joneses
The 1st step to recovery is to realize your shortcomings. Congratulations.I don’t understand your reasoning to continue with crap when someone is just offering advice, that would be easier on the trans.
I've got more miles under my belt in more different Dmax platforms than you can begin to dream about.
Suggests, yes.Allison suggests when you tow engage towhaul and leave it engaged until your done towing, you’ve even said this, so what’s your problem.
But the trans isn't going to fall out if you're underway with a load after a startup and realize the button hasn't been hit.
There ARE protections in place just for this. You don't need to pull over, stop, engage and start again.
I've described in detail what it does during this transition. In your frenzy of spewing vulgarities (how dare someone contradict me!), did you miss this?
In my line of work, there can be a lot of stop/start ups throughout the day.
Over hundreds of thousands of miles, I've occasionally missed the button, instantly realized this (difference in getting the load moving) and performed the engage under the exact conditions that you go off on like Chicken Little and the sky falling.
"just set the button and forget 'bout it"
Yes, I've said this ^^, mainly in response to newbies that are trying to use it as they would a 1/2-ton gasser, not wanting to engage it until absolutely needed. Or, engaging/disengaging while underway, thinking that they're saving fuel, as with a gasser.
Which is the wrong way with the Allison, as it wants to be in T/H all the time.
That's how it's designed, that's it's natural state of operation. Set it and leave it.
It's called a Revision. Happens all the time in the Tech world, in every industry,....has for decades, still happens today and will every day in the future.This was a Allison FAQ that I posted several years ago, some new breed youngster computer master for Allison decided to remove this FAQ,
If it was an issue (as you want it to be), it would be there today....at the top of the list.
But it isn't, because....it isn't an issue.
