We bought one! 2010 Chevy 6.6L

Hello amazing skoolie folks!

We just picked this up from a transportation company - 2010 Chevy 3500 with a 6.6L Duramax engine. Completely rust free, fleet maintained, less than 100k miles, and 6'4" of ceiling height!!

I've done some searching around for advice on more recent (2010) 6.6L Chevys but would love any additional tips, notorious things to watch out for, etc. We're planning to take it to a mechanic once we pick it up and would love any guidance.

Nice. Is that a Collins? I have an 07 Thomas Minotour with a 6.6l duramax. They seem like pretty good motors. I think that the turbo is something to watch out for on them. It is on mine. The unison ring is frozen and it throws a DTC and “barks” from time to time. I think that it’s caused by babying it. You need to open it up and really make it breathe on a regular basis. Secondarily to that is the EGR cooler. I think that both of these problems stem from excessive idling. So drive it like you stole it.
