Gassers do indeed have a problem with cracked headers and/or broken header bolts. You'll have to climb underneath to inspect. On our motorhome, I can turn the front all the way one direction and climb in behind the tire to see.
Let's hope it's broken bolts rather than a cracked manifold. Even then, the broken bolts are hard to remove, and several more will probably break during the removal process. Douse generously with liquid wrench numerous times and allow to sit. It took a WH service center 2 days to get the all bolts out of ours.
