Going down the road ( or parked) I am running both A.C.s, uses a bit of gas. Since there is no real documentation on the consumption of the unit, only 'word of mouth', I am using it as a comparison.

Yeah, I am concerned too (about the roof), John Vrydrags of Coachmen/Forrest River was quick to respond on it, now if I could just get the dealership motivated. I discovered/reported it 2 days before my 1 year was up. So you can guess I am nervous on this one. Winnebago has a 10 year roof waranty and Thor has a 2 year TPO roof waranty. it is best you check your whole roof perimeter caulking seal every 6 months. Looking at the factory caulk job, it is really cheap and of low grade for bead width. I would have caulked at 4 times their width. I was up on the roof inspecting the automatic satellite antenna install when I discovered it.

FR has a 10 year warranty on there TT and 5ers. They say that you have to clean and coat them yearly. Can not see why yours wouldn't be also.

Agreed. Reminds me of a story.

One young teenager was taking to another about the Canadian Goose; "And" he went on, "the Canadian goose can jump higher than a house! Which is due in part the size of the gooses thigh muscle and in part because houses can't jump".

LOL

Now, in retirement, I find humor to be funnier than it was back when I was working.
