I just installed a Banks engine chip in the computer on my 01 F-53 Winnebago. The instructions forgot to tell me to duct tape the thing in. Needless to say going down the road the engine quit. After calling the customer service they told me to do it. Sure would have been nice it they would have included it in the instructions. A better fix is installing a thin piece of flat metal between the case and the chip.

Duct Tape! Now there is a high tech system For that kind of money I would think that they could at least supply the tape!
