Hello to all (First story )I purchased 01 3368 Dutch Star in Feb. Ford F53 with V10 double slide. Last week was first time out as the weather in NJ was not to great. We had a great time in Cape May and put about 250 miles on but on the way home Banks header split open on inside upper tube and check engine light came on. Banks has sent me a new header which should be warr. since the tubes are lifetime if s.s. plus I have ext.two yr.warr.which should cover labor. Wondering if anyone out there has had any problems with Banks s.s. exhaust systems. Should be back on the go end of this week or early next. GREAT TO BE HERE seeems very informing.

Welcome Mikeeg to irv2
Sorry to hear of your problem had a couple of Ford V-10;s and never had that problem with the Banks headers but I guess stuff happens.
Come on down and join us on the Newmar forum below helpful people there.
I'll send this post to the Ford chassis forum maybe someone there has had your problem.
When you want some Newmar KARMA just say the word meanwhile enjoy the forums and do post often.
Check out the Nor'Easters in the region forums way below lots of company from Jersey.

Had banks on two different MoHo's for a total of 17 years. (2 diff. systems) New on each MoHo. Never had a problem with either one. Never have heard of anyone else having a mechanical problem either.
As with anything, ....happens

Sorry to here of your recent problem, personally I have no experience with the Banks systems, hopefully you'll be up and running in a short time. Ed.S
