While pulling my 32 ft camper in the mountains, my 1997 Dodge Cummings diesel losing power and overheats. It will not go more than 30 MPH. What is wrong?

I would start by checking your ECM. That's where all the calculations and adjustments happen to compensate for elevation etc...

Chainsaw tune-up

When you buy a chainsaw the carburetor is set to run at sealevel basically. The fun thing about chainsaws is you can go to the top of the mountain and cut firewood. There is a lot of difference in elevation so the carburetor settings you use at your house might not run good at the top of the mountain so it is benificial to know how to quick tune your chainsaw.

You need to set the mixtures for the carburetor. There is usually a rubber grommet on the side of the housing near the carburetor. You will find a Low and High adjustment screw. The default setting for the H and L carburetor jet is usually to turn them in all the way till they stop and back them out a turn and a half. You should start the chainsaw and warm it up untill it will run without choking. Make sure that the air filter is cleaned. Start by turning the low adjustment screw out. You will notice that the rpms should start increasing. keep turning it out until the rpms start to drop then turn it back in a quarter of a turn from where it idled at the fastest rpm. At this point you may need to adjust the idle adjustment till the saw idles at a good speed but not fast enough that the chain turns. You may need to readjust the idle speed so the chain doesn't turn during idle. To set the high adjustment screw will require that you run the saw at max RPM. It may be a good idea to get someone to hold the saw so the bar doesn't hit anything while you're doing this. Hold the throttle trigger all the way down and then turn the high adjustment screw in and out until you find maximum rpm. Turn the screw back in a quarter turn. Your saw is now tuned for the elevation you're currently at.

What is altimeter means

The altimeter records your elevation above sea level. Useful when mountain climbing, Tour De France cycle racing the mountain section or flying, which I am sure you do almost every day :>)

Water temp flucuates from hot to cold, esspedially on very rainy days.

Gas water heater problem based on weather could imply atmospheric interference, which might indicate venting problem. Check vent specs for that model. Make sure roof or side wall vent are installed correctly, and lenghts do not exceed maximum.
Problem might also be associated with elevation setting, since water heaters are sold to match expected conditions at that elevation.
If rain is associated with cooler temperatures, and more gas appliances run at same time, then unit might be starved for gas or home does not have enough ventilation.
Problem could also indicate that tankless unit needs to catch up on yearly maintenance, including clean burner and combustion parts, check loose wiring, test ignition system, clean air intake, bleed gas line, check gas pressure and check for correct vent, etc.
Before calling service technician, open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources including Bosch contact, typical manuals, etc.

-0 82 error code PTG-74PVN Rheem tankless

I had the same problem, but when you change the PCB the chip has to be reset regardles of the elevation so it can communicate properly. The rest is easy, Find the DIP Switch located on the top left side of the PCB set switch #1 & #2 to the ON position push and hold the adjustment buttom till the display changes from flashing to illuminating the reset the DIP switch #1 & #2 to the OFF position and you are ready to go.

305 Elevation Problem

Sorry to have to break (no pun intended) this to you, but I have had two units do this. Once this problem starts eventually the Elevation field will display and stay at 65616. The problem is with the barometric altimeter and cannot be fixed without sending the unit to Garmin. When you call Garmin technical support, they will have you do all sorts of resets - be patient - eventually they will concede that the unit is busted and give you an RMA. Both times this happened was after the unit got a little roughed up (one time dropped it, the other time was mountain bike tumble) - evidently the altimeter is the least robust part. Good luck.
