Yours sounds a bit different. Here's a pic of what the Oil Life display is in my truck.

Bruce, you missed out! We had no problems pulling our trailer through Lassen; although there were a number of 180 hair pin turns that longer units would have had trouble with. We drove the park from south to north, entering at 89 at the "Raker Memorial" gate, and camped at the Manzanita Lake campground. The only problem I had with visiting there (June 20) was that many of the trails were not yet open due to snow & so we didn't get a chance to hike to the Bumpass Hell & Cold Boiling Lake geothermal features. If your unit is shorter than 24.5 feet, you'd have no problem pulling through the park's main road, which is all we ventured on. I'd go again - in late July or early August - to see more of the park.

Charlie

Thanks Charlie, I was afraid that might be the case, but we were a bit pressed for time at that point in our trip and did not want to take a chance on a delay or problem. Luckily we may a chance to travel that way again and won't make the same mistake twice.

Charlie, thanks for the screen shot of the oil life indicator. I figured it out.
