This is a unique setup, I thought the only front wheel drive motorhomes were the FMC's. I would check with B&M tramsmissions to see if it can be updated.

2 out of 2 people think this is helpful.

Monster transmission says they would sell me a AOD tranny which is a 3 speed with an overdrive,, Not sure if I would gain much... B & M didn't seem to want to offer that set up


oops that was my answer


It all depends on the final drive of the overdrive part of the tranny, but unless it is beefed up a normal AOD will not handle the exteme loads a motorhome will have on it. You might try Gear Vendor, see if they might have something you can just add on to your existing drivetrain.
