I had a 1999 V-10 in 36' Pace Arrow Vision. So it was pretty heavy and I pulled either a toad or a 20ft enclosed trailer. 150,000 miles with only 2 minor issues--- idler pulley bearing for serpentine belt went bad at about 10k miles and the starter relay died at about 15k miles. Both covered under warranty and easy fixes. Great trouble free engine

Never an issue. Only problem on early ines were plugs spitting and exhaust manifold bolts breaking. Other than that it is one of he few engines that won't leave you stranded.

OP, it you're still there... This is a good point.... The starters on the V10 rarely fail, but the starter relays DO fail. I usually need a new one every 100k or so, so I carry spare now.
