Thanks for all of the information. Keep in touch on your trip. Pat and I are leaving on 27 for a short trip to the Gulf up just a little North of Corpus Christi. I am sure to come back with punch list. Always do.

I generally cruise at 60 mph. If I am being pushed I will go wild at 65 mph. As you can see, I am never in that big of a hurry to get where I am going. I actually enjoy the drive in my Georgetown XL.

Bobbyba thanks for the info that is usually what I cruise at also. Picked up the new coach this morning. Really enjoyed the drive home. It was only 10 miles but a combination of roads. We will leave next week for a shack down trip.
Did you have an off set hitch for your tow? If so how much was the off set?

JBP..... Congratulations on your new coach. Did you end up with the XL 378 TS? I actually use the Blue OX BX7365 tow bar Alpha class 1V.
Ran me a little over 600. Love it so far. Easy to hitch and unhitch.

We just bought the 378 and are getting used to it. The ride is smooth, less sway when trucks pass and plenty of power. We had a few issue upon purchase which the dealer fixed. We love the floor plan as it provides a large living area.

We bought the 369DS. Trip up the cost went great. Really like the 6 speed. The coach is quieter than my last class A with the 5 speed. This may be better insulation in the dog house. Very smooth shifting. A week latter went up the Rio Grande Valley on a trip to Eagle Pass. Good tip ran in lots of rain. No problems except caught rock in wind shield. Had to have it replaced. Sure am happy we took the extra wind shield rider. Couch has to seat for four day before I can move it.
List of items for dealer to fix is relatively short. Two of the big items they found at delivery.

May I ask what speeds you are driving on the open road?
Your use of tow/haul, when, or not?
Use of cruise control, especially on grades that result in downshift?

Do I have any more questions?

There's an app (and a gadget) for that.
I think it is Android O/S only -- Torque. You get an adapter that plugs into the ODBII port (II only) and the Torque app will read everything the computer outputs: instant MPG, avg MPG, RPMs, speed, distance to empty, temps of everything, avg speed, avg speed while moving, etc etc etc.

The adapter is BAFX Products 34t5 Bluetooth OBDII Scan Tool for Android Devices. Available at Amazon and elsewhere. I have an old 10" tablet that I have dedicated to MH app usage and have it mounted (sort of) to the left of the instrument console.

CaptainJustice I am still trying to get the feel and looking for sweet sport. Seems to be 58 to 62 MPH. Right around 2150 to 2200 rpm.
Mileage for the first two trips was little over 7 mpg I thing. Will need to look at my log book. Not bad for a new engine.
Thanks for info on the gadget. I will look it up.
