Smile Review of First Trip

Just got back from first long distance trip with MH.and the reviews are great.Traveled from NJ to Florida(Fort Wilderness) total distance 2176 miles round trip and averaged 10.2 mpg.What was nice was that the onboard computer showed that we averaged 10.1 to 10.3 on each tank full.We used a total of 4.5 gallons of DEF for the trip,so just under 2 gallons every tank full of fuel.Only problems we had where cracked drain lines under 1/2 bath sink and bad seal with the drain in the rear bath sink,and on returning north with the generator running to use roof air the computer keep saying that the internal term was 32F. and would not let the aircond. to run.Back to the dealer for repairs.

At least you got to take yours out for your first trip , we bought ours in Oct.14 and as of today we still haven't been able to use it . The way it looks it will be out of warranty before we ever get to spend a night in it , still sitting at the dealer waiting on parts From Forest River so you can get your ass we will never buy another FR product .

What FR product do you have and what parts are you waiting on? No way it takes months to get parts. Any part used on any new product is readily available. Have you talked with FR directly?

Mr hoff, your talking about while driving down the road right? Why would you want to put hrs on gen when your engine is charging batteries and inverter is providing 110 for fridge and tv?

I run the AC when it's hot. If I have passengers the dash air won't keep up. Also it's good to run the gen. It's a diesel and needs to run. I know people with all electric MH that start the gen every time they drive anywhere.
