Our "family of choice" couple use the Garmin. They've named her, and quite frankly I think they need help....they talk about her and TO her like she's a family pet.

X2 thats what I do including staying a few clicks above posted on 2 lane blacktop to at least give no reason to pass the slow 5th wheel.

The Clarion tells me when I am over the speed limit which the DW loves, keeps her from having to monitor my speed.

Like some others, my coach has a governor set at 73 or so which is fast enough considering the rig starts go get a little squirrely above 70.

Ours was set at 75 but it looks like there is no limit with the 5 start tune. We can now Do The Ton....just kidding. With kids on board I don't go past 65.

Never in my 73+ years have I seen a state post signs saying "Suggested Speed Limit" on a highway, street or interstate.
They try to (Eliminate All Doubt) on a Curve in our Township! Go (16 MPH) and your Bank Account will DROP! Youroo!!

Try this link.

Speed Limit for Class A - Laws and legislative action - FMCA Motorhome Forums

Although it may not completely answer your question, it contains a lot more useful info, as far as your specific question, than what precedes.

Ours is set just above 70 but not sure the exact number, tried it once to see if it were available if I ever for some unlikely reason need it. I normally drive around 60 -65.

Maybe I'm just an old fart, but 55 to 60 is fine with me. I don't know who to send my fuel bill to for the extra fuel used together there 15 minutes earlier!
