Ford factory converter 1890 for the part and on back order.... Looking for an alternative. I guess there is an oxygen sensor in the cat too that needs to be replaced. Could I get away with an aftermarket??

Not on a motorhome but several years ago my Dodge pick-up needed a new cat. I always dealt with a local muffler shop and they replaced it and it also uses the sensor. They recommended sensor replacement but were OK with not replacing it. Everything was still working fine when I traded the truck three years later. My experience for what it is worth, Jim.

Are you past the 8 year 80,000 mile emission warranty? That would cover a catalyst.

You posted on 3/27/2006 that you had just got it. Is that close to your in service date? If so, you're within 8 years...

How does a cat get plugged on a 2006?

First think I thought also and with less that 50,000 miles. Should last well over 100,000 miles. Double check your warranty. Pollution control stuff sometimes have a longer time period/mileage than the generic power train warranty.

Over the years I saw few bad converters. If memory serves me right most often it occurred when the cat was exposed to a rich mixture for some time. Excessive hydrocarbons would render the catalyst ineffective and eventually it got plugged up to the point that the exhaust couldn't get out and back pressure resulted in the described symptoms.

This coach is a 2006. We don't know the history. Maybe the cat has already been replaced for some reason. If that were the case maybe the replacement was not a good one and it didn't last as long as it should have.

There has to be some reason for the early cat failure. Maybe the previous owner had some fuel problems and they were not resolved correctly. Maybe the internal exhaust pipe collapsed closing off the exhaust causing back pressure and in fact the cat is good. (I did see that happen a few times.) There are just to many unanswered questions that can only be answered by the owner talking with a good diagnostic tech. For us to give answers is just pure conjecture.

I did not have the dealer fix it due to cost. I will put an aftermarket cat this month by myself.

Ford uses a ceramic (glass)converter. We had a new motorhome with less than 2000 miles on it fail to start. You would crank the motorhome and it would almost run. As soon as you let off the starter it would die. The ceramic had disintegrated and completely stopped up the exhaust. We had a second Ford do the same thing, but it would barely run with no power.
