Cummins has a Cummins Quickserve app that you can download for free. Then plug in your engine serial number. That will give you all part numbers for your specific engine.

Cummins Las Vegas - Just had my motor home repaired there today and The service manager Tony and his crew especially Pedro went above and beyond to get us back on the road. I recommend that if you have any Cummins issues while in Vegas this is the place you want to be. Thanks again to tony and his crew the Learys

Remember, a 2008 coach will have a 2007 chassis and engine.
Link to engine specs:
https://cumminsengines.com/showcase-...A+07)#overview

The Cummins ISB is the same small inline 6 cylinder diesel engine used in Dodge pickups. It's a great motor, just be careful with your gross weight and what you tow. It also works better in the eastern US than it will in the Rocky Mountain west.

Thanks. Ive attached the brochure of the unit I am considering. We will be towing about 8000# combined car and trailer. Ive read about some lawsuits concerning this engine if it is the same one you say. We plan on living in this full time and travelling North America....I may need to keep looking.

Next time ask for the engine torque rating. Don't settle for anything less than 1050 ft. lbs. 1200 or more is better for pulling up mountains.

The torque specs are in the brochure the OP linked to.

That is a nice coach in the brochure. IMO that is expecting a lot from the ISB configuration.
Our older CC has an 8.3L Cummins 325hp with 950 ft.lbs of torque and its rated to pull only 7000 lbs, 3000 less than your potential coach. We pull 4K at the most with "stuff" in the CR-V and I would not want to pull a pound more over any mountain pass or steep hill, grossing about 34,000 with the CR-V.

If you purchase it you can always adjust your expectations to the reality of the coach and enjoy the heck out of it!

Keep us posted please.

Thanks for the input. The car and trailer are a must so finding the right rv to tow it will be the task. I was disappointed in the engine in this one, but not a lot out there in Canada.

Any thoughts or experience adding the Banks Power Package? They claim best results to be 55hp and 110 tq at wheels.

Coming from the deezle pickup world, that seems pretty low for tuning a turbo cummins --- if you get rid of some weight might improve the performance more than that
tuning a turboed vehicle has been known to give you stunning results with just a tune... adding 125 hp and 200+ lbft of torque was not out of the question.

BUT, will the rest of your drive train survive it? Some of the allison trnsmissions are only rated to handle so much torque and exceeding that causes issues elsewhere.

IMHO, Banks has an EXCELLENT sales and marketing department, but is much more expensive than other better performing tuners.... be sure to look around before you decide...

Banks makes some great kits and they do add power. There are also several other power adding kits for the little Cummins ISB.

The problem is heat! How are you going to get rid of all the excess heat?

My advice: For towing a heavy trailer, stick to the larger diesel engines (400hp and 1050 ft lbs or more) and a side radiator or you will regret it.
