Hi, I'm sorta new to this sight too, I think I've read most stuff twice on here. I live in the desert also with my '97 F350 CC PSD with 118,000 miles. I also pull a 37' 14,000 LB 5th wheel. I use my EBPV as an engine break, and my truck runs just fine when it is closed. Granted it is a little louder then normal and it feels like I'm fighting a good head wind. I personally would go with what these folks say on here. I know two deisel techs. And the have very little clue when it comes to the PSD.
The EBPV is very easy to disconnect. It took me about 20 minutes to convert mine to an engine break
And at that time, one of my deisel techs told me that what I was doing wouldn't work. That my engine would not run when it closed. Makes me wonder what school he went to.
As for any other reasons why there is no power, I'm clueless. Fortunately for me, Mine has run flawlessly since I accuired it 1.5 years ago. And of course I got the power bug, but the wife won't let me spend all at once.
