Banks Exhaust

Hi All,

Fairly new to my 2004 HR Vacationer with W-22 chassis (August of 2018) and still trying to sort some things out.

I was told by the Dealer where I bought the coach that it had Banks Exhaust installed but when I questioned a shop where I was having some repairs done, they said no, it didn't have Banks. I'm getting a solid 8.5 MPG with 15' trailer (trike) which I guess is pretty good after getting only 7 MPG on my '95 Flair.

Is there any way I can tell visually if it truly has Banks Exhaust installed? Does it look different from the original? Should there be some notice somewhere?

Thanks for any help!!

Look for long tube exhaust headers.

Pretty much what OEMY said, here are some pictures to compare, you can access the exhaust manifold via the dog house or look through the wheel well

My Banks Power exhaust goes into one exhaust on the drivers side. The stock had duel exhausts.

8-5 mph is pretty good. When travelling, my combined towing weight would be pretty close to 30,000lbs. and I get 7 mpg on flat terrain, no wind. I have been as high as 10 when I have tail winds and 4 with head winds.
