Huh? Larry, what does your manual tell you regarding your MH's hitch rating and GCWR? Knowing that and the weight of the Ford will give you your answer..

Your RV has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and a Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR). You must weigh the RV on all four wheels when loaded to find where you are in relation to the GVWR. Then you know how heavy the toad can be and not exceed the GCWR. Also verify the front and rear axle weights and hitch load are not exceeded.

You can pull it fine. Just a little slower going up hills. My 5.9L pulls a 4,680 lb Toad with no problem.

Curb Weight of yours is around 4,082 lb

NO, not too heavy for that coach. You will be fine.
