May I ask why you posted the exact same question three weeks ago on another forum. Of course I am assuming that susieq2013 on the other forum is you

"as we were driving our Endeavor (1999) home yesterday, an orange light on the dash lit up and said "Engine Pilot" and then the engine quit. We were able to start it again, and it didn't repeat.


sure glad to find this message board

Maybe because I didn't get an answer on the other board. the endeavor is NEW to us, and I had no idea what the man was asking.


This Engine Pilot light that lit up, SOMEONE AHS TO HAVE seen it along the line.

I can't find a manual for this motorhome, and googling isn't helping. Monaco took over Holiday Rambler and I called them, and even THEY don't have a manual.

I also don't check this message board constantly, and am sorry that I didn't answer sooner.

sheesh

Just thought of something else...you said you "smelled hot" like the brakes. Did you check to ensure you weren't losing coolant. Coolant on the exhaust could smell similar to brakes. I'm guessing you're overheating. Find a safe place to stop and find out what's wrong before continuing. Safety should come first.....Dennis


this is a brake that was looked at before we left. The man said we didn't need to replace the linings. There was oil all over the place, and I have no idea of the details other than that I'll have to ask. So, no, it wasn't the coolant.

It sounds to me like you should get some training on how to operate a motorhome, like a short form of a cdl course. That way you will learn how these coaches operate and you will gain a better understanding of what to watch for. These things are not little cars. Knowledge is safety.
