2007 Monaco Dynasty Potential Problems

Hi All, I am looking to purchase a used 2007 Monaco Dynasty with 20k miles. Upon checking I learned that the engine a ISL 400HP model fell within the 2005-2006 potential Wrist Pin problem engines. I contacted Cummins and was told that the "Recall Campaign" was done, a new sensor and wiring was performed. The Tech also said he had not heard of any engines destructing from this.
Does anyone have any direct knowledge of this fault.
Any further comments would be appreciated.
thanks, Barrier

I had a next door neighbor with an Allegro Bus whose ISL had the failure at about 35k miles in 2010. He had had the Cummins sensor installed but the failure occurred anyway. Required a rebuild.

I bought a used 5 year old hr navigator with 4,000 miles. Turned out they had been living in it as it was parked outdoors. Worn carpets and other interior parts. Also exterior chrome needed to be replaced and paint had lost its shine in some places. Be wary of extremely low mileage rvs. The mechanicals were almost perfect however.

Cummins has extended the warranty period on those series of engines. Cummins attorneys sent a letter to NHTSA outlining the extended warranty but not to owners that I know of. You might search on the NHTSA site for it. I found it once, somehow.

Barrier2,

I have a 2006 ISL whose serial numbers fall within the recall. What Cummins does is add a warning to the idiot lights for this problem. It is not a fix for the problem. Almost all failures are within the first 10,000 miles. The failures are rare however I have a friend who had the failure. The warning light came on and before he could get to the side of the road and there was a trail of oil behind him. He did have an extended warranty so it cost him his deducrable. You can get the Good Sam or a similar extended warranty for peace of mind. If it's the right floor plan, good condition and the price is right, don't let the recall stop you.
