I hear you, rkuhl84 (http://www.ramforumz.com/member.php?u=69232), I really hate the HVAC controls in my non-auto 2013 Big Horn. Dual zone temps have been standard in other brands since 2002.

You are kidding, aren't you? The catch can fills with condensed water vapor mixed with unburned fuel and oil. I really hope you are not adding this back into the crankcase.
