Faith restored...just a few more fixes!
After blowing two wheel bearings and a host of first-year issues, we finally completed our first major (2750+ miles) trip (15 days, 12 states). FR3 did great through torrential rain and storms, 100 degree days, and hills/mountains of PA and TN. A few notes:
MPG: 7.1 over 2750+ miles while averaging 63 mph, towing our CrV, always running generator, and up and down hills/mountains.
HP/torque: I had no issues getting up and over the hills/mountains of TN, PA, WV, VA, etc. It was our first trip out of flatland and I was surprised how very well the FR3 powered over the hills. I'm sure going out West is a whole different experience.
Generator: Quit running three times. Twice when we stopped for refueling with an air temp of 95 degrees and a third time in slow traffic through Atlanta when the air temp showed 102. I need to do the vent fix.
Broke: Only the windshield wiper fluid and intermittent wipers (regular wipers work).
Very happy with how the FR3 did. A year of fixes and finally I feel like we have a reliable unit that will get us where we want to go (and back!).
Here is a pic of the Youghiogheny River we camped on and at the Delaware Seashore State Park.
