It would be an interesting exercise to drive a chevy and ford in like style coach... Our 4500 coach with the chevy wishbone frontend (16" tires) seems to be a stiffer (very low sterring wheel input) straight line with the only telltail of increasing speed being the dumbo ears with modest bodyroll. What speed effect occurs with the e350/e450?

I didn't know about the recall until I read your post this morning. I followed up with a call to Chevy Warranty right away and after visiting with a couple of people on the phone was referred to my local GMC Dealer. Said they didn't work on RVs, but if it was just a computer system update they would check it out and do it if they could. Set an appt for 2 hrs later. Went in and in less than 45 minutes the system was updated and I was on my way. I only wish getting service work done on my RV was as quick.

Well I should have proof read my second post more accurately.
I stated 13.1 mpg and while I did have the right numbers they are in the wrong order. The mpg that was averaged on my first trip was a solid 11.3 mpg.
Looks like I need to type slower just like I need to drive slower, sorry for the confusion and misrepresentation.

That's great , I have 10,000 miles on my 2015 2251slc and never got better than 9.6 miles per gallon. Next week I start towing so I expect I'll be getting less

I find the Chevy handles nicely at 70, as long as the wind and traffic are OK. I enjoy going slower also. It depends on the situation. I am very conscious of safety while driving it.

When we first bought it, I was determined that I would never accept less than 10 MPG in an RV. Now I can see us in a bigger MH some day. Then I'll have to replace 10 with 7 as my goal.
