1999 Gulfstream Voyager Questions

Just purchased a used 35ft 1999 Gulfstream Sun Voyager, it has no Documentation with it what so ever. It has the v10 Ford Motor (6.8l) which runs ok as long as it’s not Raining.
Questions
1. Is this referred to as P53 frame?
2. Is this a workhorse frame? Or just a ford frame?
3. Cannot find where the Doghouse removal screws or latches are at, it had new carpet installed just before I purchased it and I can’t see anything, lol?
4. Is this considered a 350 or a 450 or 550 (when asking for parts for motor)?
5. Is it normal for these Motor homes to miss when driving in the Rain???
Thanks for any help as I am far from being a car/truck guy
.

There is a TSB for the rain problem. Here is a quote from a document I found:

"The latest fix for the water ingestion problem is TSB 04-24-22 and is available for those chassis with this problem even out of warranty."

There is also a TSB regarding oil:

"The V-10 was never designed to use 7 quarts of oil. Use only 6 quarts with a filter change every 3000 miles regardless of the type of oil used (don't extend oil changes when using synthetic oil).

The old "T" handle dipstick is 1/2" too short and makes it appear more oil is needed to bring the oil mark up to full. TSB 01-10-5 replaces the dipstick with the "LOOP" handle model. Excess oil consumption is more than one quart in 1500 miles."

Answers: 1. F53 chassis; 2. Ford; 3. Can't be of help on that one; 4: F53 Super Duty stripped chassis with 6.8L v10 engine; 5. yes if water is ingested into the air filter housing, RonTon gave you information for the fix on that problem.

And congratulations on your recently acquired coach and hope you will enjoy many fun, safe and trouble free journeys.

The official designation is F-53 Stripped Chassis, but it is closest to the F-550. I would look for bolt on the back end of the dog house in the carpeting with perhaps an Allen head. Check your air filter, if it got wet it has probably deteriorated and should be replaced. I just got the latest parts as per the TSB for the water ingestion, the strap and "snorkel" come to $94.

Thanks to everyone, i ran out today and ordered the new snorkel and a new filter (after looking at mine to make sure it has never been updated) did not bother with the strap, but local ford dealer started out at $72.00 but debated with him for a moment and settled for $65.00 so i saved a buck or two, and yes it still has the old t-handle so i will watch that. again thanks guys for everthing.
