Nice choice. We have the same floor plan in our 17 Chateau 31E. She was picked up on 6-29 and left town 7-3. Been on the road since with 2500 miles added so far from Snohomish, WA to currently Kansa City, MO. Destination is Lexington, KY

Been a great trip with only a couple hiccups on generator shutting off while driving late afternoon after short stops for fuel. I'm thinking its overheating issues as we haven't had it since in cooler weather.

I highly highly recommend the ECT tuner from 5 star tuning. The shift patterns for tranny make a massive difference plus you get a little more HP & TQ. She's pulled this 8K lbs plus cargo trailer like a dream over the hills and passes while holding the gear without downshifting unless you give it more gas trying to maintain speed.

Enjoy the ride and the memories. We just returned from a three week adventure in our Four Winds 31e. Headed out to Wyoming and South Dakota. Beautiful country. RV did great.

Thanks! How long had you been driving with the generator when you encountered that? Planning on making our trips about 300-400 miles a day with some variance depending on where we want to stop. This is my first class C, had a TT prior and I'm looking forward to the adventure... Loved the floor plan of the 31E too much to pass it up. Appreciate the heads up and link for the tuner. I had already installed a hard wired EMS and was thinking about Tire Pressure monitoring next. I'm always in the market for more HP and TQ tho!

It was worth the ride for sure. If you do it don't try to pack to much in to the trip. We did Badlands, Mt Rushmore and Devils Tower with some points in between. Don't know how people jamb in Yellowstone.

When we did this trip we would find something to do /stop at every four to six hours along the way; American Pickers Store, Zoo, RV Hall of Fame. After the excursion, back on the road for two or three more hours. Made the trip a lot easier on the family. Our kids really had a good time.

Hope you have fun on your trip. We hope to journey that way in a year or two.

Crawfish and 2Fast, Congratulations on your new coaches!!! Welcome to the forum!

I've had the 5 Star Tune on my coach for a while now, the difference is great and very noticeable. Highly recommend this tune because it works so well with the 6 speed transmission.

Best wishes to both of you for safe and fun travels!!!
