If the vehicle gets totaled (I assume you meant while being driven) then it's pretty easy to prove negligence which would void just about anything the dealer had you sign. Of course, it it was totaled due to another driver hitting it then it's their insurance problem, not yours or the dealers.

Thanks again for everyone's inputs. To answer a few questions and then close this out, here goes...

ē My State of Residence is Ohio. No emission testing. But I do intend to trade it in some day for another, so no Cat is really not a viable option, although I did give the idea due consideration.
ē I'm not going after the dealer on this. They were harmed in this incident (new units also hit) as well as the private MH owners. This dealership is a class act and my relationship with them is outstanding. For 11 years their support has been great and on many occasion beyond any obligation they had to me, and I have insurance for this incident. So I'll be compensated and the dealership will go out of their way to be sure I am more than satisfied with the final outcome.
ē As I've been educated thru this process, it's clear that a universal Cat will fit the bill as replacement, as the Banks system is designed to mate with the respective OEM converters. Dealership is working with a local shop that they know to get that done, so the outcome there will be just fine.

So thanks to everyone again for your replies. I love this forum for that very reason. People more than willing to help another fellow RV'er with knowledgeable inputs. This is quite the support system we have.

Happy New Year!

Glad things are working out. Hopefully you won't be down too long.

For a few dollars the thieves have no idea how they affect others as well as their own lives.

Our area has been hard hit with unemployment, Cats, Copper, even outside building AC units have been common targets. Had one guy nearly died from trying to steal the copper from a 440V live line and burnt the building to the ground in the process. Even stole all the shore power cords from RVs at our near by dealership for the copper.

Good for you for taking the high road. It will pay off for you in the future (it' called Karma).
