Ray
Yes the Banks system air filter setup worked good also whether it was stand alone or with the whole Bank's exhaust system.
Had them both on each one of my Fords.

You must have got a parts man who did not want to bother with you. These are Ford PN's I have used the Banks intake system and think it much better than the Ford. The downside is that it costs about three times as much as the Ford. The upside is, you get a better airfilter and a larger filter housing with more airflow plus a larger air pipe across the engine.

Update - 6.80 mpg - We took our first trip. Minneapolis to Austin, MN and back, round trip was 260 miles. Used 38.232 gallons. Topped off before leaving and after return at the same station and pump to get comparable fills. Drove at 58mph maximum. Slow acceleration and coasting to stop. We were over our GVWR of 20,500 by a few hundred pounds and we were towing a CRV which weighs in at 3,300 lbs. Goes to show that towing at the sweet spot, 2,400 rpm and 58mph for a '99 Mountain Aire with an F53 chassis definitely makes a difference. Our previous overall was 5.5 to 5.8 driving at 61 to 62mph. That 5.5 to 5.8 was from Florida to Minnesota with 1 adult, no toad and a pretty much empty chassis but we also had some problems with the Mass Air Flow Sensor and replaced that in Macon, GA. I have a Banks Ram Air Intake on order and should have that before our next trip which will be about 480 miles round trip to northern Minnesota. Stay tuned.

Our family drove from Fargo, ND to Wisonsin Dells which was 450 miles pulling a Mercury Montego on a dolley and I got 8.5 mpg going there with slight tail wind and then 7.65 coming back with slight head wind. I averaged 62 mph. I have everything stock. On my list though is a tune from 5 Star...it really does need shift points tweaked.

Shortly after we got out 2000 HR Vacationer with the V10 I had the Banks exhaust/intake installed. Really didn't gain any gas mileage, but the MH sure went up hills with less stress. The gas mileage has always been around 7-8mpg at 60mph depending on wind direction towing a 3500# Subaru.

Update. We took a 260 mile trip, fully loaded and slightly over the GVWR of 21,500 plus 3,300 pound toad, 3 pugs, 2 grand kids, wife, 1 german shephard and we burned 38.2 gallons and ran the generator for 2 hours. 260/38.2 = 6.8mpg > 260/(38.2-2.0) =7.18 mpg. This while driving at 58mp and 2,400 rpm - southern MN, mostly flat.

We just finished our second trip of 385 miles, drove by myself for 260 miles and towed our toad again, 3,300 lbs with wife and 3 pugs for 125 miles - drover again at 58mph/2,400 rpm and slow acceleration and coasting to lights, got 7.68mpg overall, but ran the Generator for 8 hours - generator has a range of gas per hour and I have picked 1gph (I think this is high) - if I back out 8gallons for the generator, I come up with 9.15mpg. I don't think the generator is using 1gph as I think 9.15mpg is too high. I'm actually happy with the 7.68mpg. By comparison our 04 Fleetwood Discovery overall average was 6.6mpg with a 330hp Cat (didn't like the CAT, one of the big reasons we sold) - this was a 39' rig and we ran most of the time with a Toad.

The Banks Ram Air arrived yesterday and will have that installed for our 3rd trip.

Also, we just hit 15,000miles, yes a 1999 coach that had 13,500 miles when we bought it, and I was able to validate the mileage several different ways - the Engine just purrs, I think we may just be getting this engine broke in. Anyway, the numbers keep going up.

Biggest variable - how heavy your foot is and how fast you accelerate and coast - it makes a big difference. I can now say that I'm ECO friendly by driving slower
