Re: 7.3L 1999 Camper
If it only has 19,000 miles on it in four years the turbo may have seized from simple lack of use and all the oil draining out of it. Then you start it up and the turbo spins a few hundred times before the bearings in it get oil. IF I'm right here, the only thing I can think of is to use full synthetic motor oil (diesel rated of course) and that might protect it better.

If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he'll sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
