    The 2.79 is HELOC. (Home equity line of credit.)
    Have you used other GPS before? It is not just mine, I tried to use the demo at Kenworth Montreal like I use my old car Garmin, I crashed it in a minute.:biggrin_25523: I did not do anything, just I tried to check the route on the map. Wen I pulled the screen, it redraw a couple of times a little painfully, than crashed. Exactly like mine. To check it is a must, since the software is not foolproof too.

    My truck is involved in four recalls. Two DEF related. One is a DEF line what causes check engine light issues the other one is the DEF level sensor. This is one thing I complained about it cause early warning and engine derating.

    If the nightmare truck is financed through Pacar, that guy needs to get lawyers involved asap. Pacar IS Kenworth, so there is recourse there, regardless of how they try to dodge it.
