ford has announced a major recall of their trucks and etc. because of s problem with the cruise control. They have not included the MH chassis. My Ford chassis MH caught fire going down the freeway. The fire started in the engine compartment. The insuance people hired a fire inspector to determine cause. They determined that it "started on the left front of the engine". Since everything in the engine area was burned, the unit was totaled.

anyone else have a problem like this?

My '96 Ford Winne hopefully won't have this problem as I haven't heard anything from Ford. Maybe I'm driving an antique? and they don't worry about us.
