Ticking Noise from under V10 Doghouse

I thought I had this solved until I saw someone else had the same situation on a different forum and no one had my answer. My 2018 Winnie E350 V10 with 4000 miles has consistently had this ticking, or tapping noise coming from under the doghouse. Usually on acceleration or when my toad is attached. It almost sounds like a valve tick or rattling when you use the wrong octane gasoline. Since I had it at a Ford Dealer anyway I asked the mechanic about it and he immediately said OH, that's just your injectors and it's normal. Well, no one on this other forum had that answer, so I'm wondering if the mechanic was just blowing me off not wanting to pursue my problem or is this really a common noise that I don't have to be concerned with. I have yet to step up and use a high octane fuel to see if this helps because the mechanic said it's common and who wants to pay even more for fuel? Wonder how many others have experienced this and if it needs further attention? Thanks

Might be worth the price of higher octane to see if it makes it go away. Would rule out one possibility.The Jayco Forums are excellent and another place to air problems.

I wouldn’t expect it with such low miles but it’s possibly an exhaust leak or exhaust manifold crack.

Under load, I'd go with a low octane "ping" noise. The computer is supposed to compensate for octane variance but it has limitations. Go for an upgrade in gas next time you are towing to see if that is the cause. If you need to run higher octane, you likely have a faulty sensor that is keeping the computer from correctly adjusting the timing for the octane in use. I've used 85 octane out west with no problems, except lower pulling power on hills, no knocks.

Exhaust manifold leak, or Y-pipe gasket (donut).

Sometimes they just aren't tightened enough at the factory. I'd get them to fix it before it gets any worse. Don't take their BS answer. You cannot hear injector rattle or predetonation with the doghouse cover on.
