Default 2001 sun sport RED LINE

My Ford book says not to go over red line with the v-10
no where in any manual can I find what the red line is for the v-10
This is a new motor in a 2001 Sun Sport the old one lasted 14172 miles
Can anyone tell me how they drive theirs, as to using over drive while towing.

Doug,

Welcome to the Gulf Stream Owners RV Forum!

I would imagine that you could get the red line information from the Ford dealer in your area for the V10 engine.

Also, usually, but not always, if there was installed a tach in your dash when it was manufactured, there should be a marking on it or "red line" to reference to for the engine that was installed when new.

I found a new person at Ford that gave me the RED line for the v-10 at 5250 rmp. It sounds reasonable.
Thanks for the help
