Default Lock down

So how are all you rookies doing on this lock down?
Holding it together?
Getting things down around the house?
To the rig?

Don't worry there's still two tires on the ground.

are you kidding? I'm still working 8+ hours a day, and with Carolyn here, getting 8 hours in for GM takes about 12-14 hours, so no, I am not getting anything extra done. :-(

And Cummins is not helping in the slightest bit to get the motorhome back together.
They have told me without the Engine serial number they can't help me. I've asked how or where else it in, because their website states it should be on the block but I can't find it there either, and they just say, they can't help me.

what year is your motor home and what engine is in it? I can ask a couple of people where it should be.

it's a 1992 with a 8.3 cummins

I was able to match up most everything from the parts removed, but still left wondering what this engine is rated. I've heard 270hp to 380hp, but even the 270 has almost 800 ft lb's of torque, and this 30k lb RV was doing 75 on the highway before I knew it.
