Question What is "High Mileage" for a V-10?

We have just under 50K on our 2014 (purchased new in 2016) Canyon Star Toy Hauler. I'm wondering if there are any engine issues to watch out for as the miles accumulate.
Does anyone have several hundred K on one of these engines in a Canyon Star?
Thanks in advance for any information. I look forward to the discussion.
There may be a Newmar DP in our future, but nothing definite. This input may play into the decision.

Mileage

I would think that with proper maintenance, it wouldn't be any different, actually better than a regular auto. Today's new cars with good maintenance will perform for a couple hundred thousand miles.

I have to agree. With proper maintenance and rpm control I would think you can get a lot of miles out of them. I certainly hope so anyway.

I have a friend that sold his class c recently with 140,000 miles on it. Sale included a trailer so he towed the 140,000 miles he put on engine. He had no issues.

Check the Fleetwood Flair that the couple on the YouTube channel “Motorhome Experiment “ drive. It had well over 100K miles when they drove to the arctic circle. They then went to Alaska and from there to Baha Mexico. I believe that now have over 150K miles and still going. Motor and transmission have been solid.

When we sold our 1999 Pace Arrow Vision with the first year v-10 , it had about 150k trouble free miles on it.

Had an 07 V10 that we put 40k miles on with no issues. Being a mechanic I did a lot of research on these engines and they are very reliable with normal maintenance. The one common issue with the V10 and also the V8 version of this same engine design is the spark plugs. The plugs themselves usually work fine until they burn out around 100k miles. The problem lies when removing them at high mileage or an extended time interval. They will seize in the head and will break off when removing them. There is a special tool that a seasoned mechanic can use to remove the broken off piece successfully. If not, the cylinder head will need to be removed for repair.
They have changed the plugs on the later models and also the replacement plugs to deter this issue. But I am unsure of what years that covers. There are several videos(Google it) that show these issues. One way to possibly avoid this would be to replace the plugs at earlier mileage or time to hopefully avoid the seizing of the plugs in the cylinder heads.

If there something you can do to prevent the spark plugs from seizing in the block or is it simple replacement at say 50k mile intervals the best option? Spark plugs are cheap relative to pulling heads.

Thanks

Several hundred thousand miles is not unusual at all in commercial trucks. Most of those accumulate miles faster than MH. The average coach body will disintegrate before the engine wears out.

Since you have a newer model, it may have an upgraded plug. I’m not sure. Find an experienced Ford technician and have a conversation with them about any upgrades or prevention for this. As far as the plugs being “cheap”, Guess it is relative to what it may cost if you have this issue. My cost to replace the 10 plugs and labor was around $600. The plugs were over $30 each. I have a friend that recently went to work at acFord dealer. I will check and see if he has any new info on this. Thanks
