The 5th gear on an NV4500 transmission

We had transmission issues on the Montana section of the trip. About 30 miles east of Billings we lost 5th gear. After that we were limited to 55 mph in 4th gear. We were the slow-poke in the right lane. Grrrr

5th gear is a know issue with the transmission in Truck 2.0 and I was hoping I would get away with not having it break. Nope

Limping into Kalispell seemed to be the best option. The wait time to get repairs in Billings was 2-weeks and there was no space in the local campgrounds. Grrrr
