RE: 1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

Thanks for the replies… I just went and picked it up today to take it the exhaust shop. Drove it without any issues. It does feel like there is not a lot of power but I figured that is because it is a gasser and is so big. I don’t expect it to be like a hot rod but figure it should have more power than it does. As it is, I wouldn't trust trying to drive through even the smallest of mountains! It has sat for a week since I parked it so leads me to believe the excessive exhaust back pressure is causing the lack of power and maybe something to heat up which eventually causes it to lose power. I am told braking is affected when the exhaust back pressure is excessive.

RE: 1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

Everything has been went through. That is what I am saying. All new Belts, hoses, oil, filters, fuel injectors, fuel pump, plugs, wires all new brakes, calipers and rotors, AC units checked, generator runs like a top etc…. The mobile mechanic says the exhaust is plugged. I have read that the 95-97 F53 chassis with the Ford 460 did not come with catalytic converter. I Realize it has extremely low miles but this thing is cherry! Just wondering if anyone had any dealings with exhaust or catalytic converter issues if there are any on this model.

1997 Holiday rambler Endeavor LE Ford 460

Just got a good deal (or so I thought) on this coach. On the way home, we stopped at a rest area for a few minutes. Once we stated back on the road the coach started hesitating really bad and would not get over 40. I managed to get a hold of a road side mechanic and actually got the unit to him. He says the exhaust is plugged up as he checked the back pressure. Likely the catalytic converter. However from what I have read that year f53 chassis doest have a cc. The unit rums absolutely fine unless under power and there is just nothing there. The brakes are pretty hard to get it to stop as well. Indicating an exhaust issue. If the there is is no cc on it what else could be causing a plug. The unit only has 15,000 on it and runs great! No back fire no jumping or missing just no power. Any help is greatly appreciated!
