Just finished a 3 thousand mile trip from California to Monument Valley, Colorado Springs, Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone with no problems. MH ran perfectly, all systems go, and had a wonderful time. I am envious of 9mpg, as we got about 7 pulling our Ford Escape. Wonderful weather and just a great time!

Happy Trails, Forrest

Nice to have those perfect trips. I recently completed one as well. 7 mpg is consistent with what I got. Like to know what the guys who get 9+ MPG are smoking😆😆

Georgetown performed flawlessly....

Well, wrapped up our 2 week round trip from CT to Disney's Ft. Wilderness in a 351DS. Overall, simply a great time.

Saw 12, yes 12 Georgetowns on the way, either driving or camping.

Issues on the road:
-calcium deposits clogging up every faucet. Flushed the hot water heater and problem so far proving.
- various fuses tripped - just reset and go. This is not really a single issue, just normal occurrences.
- went over a truck tire remnant on the highway, bent the generator exhaust a little and hit the black/grey wastewater pipe hard enough to damage both valves and had the entire assembly leaking, it was nasty. Found the part at a rv store nearby, spent 2 hours replacing both valves and the drain assembly. Actually like how it is now more than the original solution.
- one of the corners on the front slide doesn't fully come out when slide is extended. Needs to extend maybe 3" more to fully seal. I'll take the cover off the slide assembly today to look but probably will take it in to get adjusted.

Just spent another trouble free weekend in ours going to a few different racetracks in the Midwest.

Starboard, can you post pics of your repair of the grey/blak water fix?

Sure.

I took out the entire assembly including the valves, replaced it all. The drain is now inside the compartment, which I think is nicer and there's nothing external to hit/damage on the road. I just insert the drain hose from the bottom and attach.

Also - The hole in the bottom compartment is now a 4" screw lid like in other compartments.

I did the same thing but mine hit a dead raccoon and turned it backwards. Had a mobile service tech rebuild it. I leave a clear plastic extension on it when set up in a camp ground and the sewer hose attaches similar to factory setup.


I have a photo but haven't been able to decode getting it from the cloud to the posting.

That's a really good idea as well.. In general, I am a fan of enclosed systems - no exposed plumbing.
