Well, that all changed a few years ago when my first spark pug/wire incident came about. Found out then, that some coaches had overheat problems towards the rear cylinders because of lack of air flow across the manifolds.

Then a year or two later, had problems with sticking brakes. Turns out Workhorse put out a recall on the W22 chassis brakes. On our P32, no go, and i was out the money to repair. The bad thing is, the new calipers have the same pistons so i'm sure i'll have that problem again sooner or later.

Just last year, another issue with plugs and wires. Replaced again. I'm getting ready to put the vent set up in but it's something i shouldn't have to worry myself with.

Just seems things weren't thought out very well in the beginning which therefore, has left a bad taste in my mouth.

What seems funny is that i've never had any problems with anything in the coach. Alll problems have been chassis related. Just the opposite of my past experiences.

Most of your wire issues are likely due to the coach manufacturer and not the chassis. Some manufacturers never had this issue because they allowed for enough air flow whereas others constrained the air flow and had more issues. Ford had some growing pains as well so no chassis was perfect.

Alot of truth and facts posted here. I happen to have a 35 footer on an F53 chassis. The newer ones with a 6 speed have a know defect with Ford sidestepping the issue with no fixes yet. I don't have a link but it shouldn't be hard to find. Mine has been great- no issues at all in the eight years we've owned it. Ford fixed the earlier spark plug/cylinder head issues before 2003, I think.
