First trip in new MH
We just got back from our first trip in our new to us Windsport. An alignment and Roadmaster steering stabilizer moved WAY up the list of mods. It is hard to believe someone put 18,000 miles driving cross country in this RV . I had thought our 1989 Chieftain on a P30 was bad before I replaced the steering stabilizer and worked out the airbag pressure. The rest of the things on the trip were normal.
Had little trouble with the heat on our first night. It worked good all afternoon, then in the evening it would come on run for about 30 to 45 seconds then turn off. It started working during the night and worked the rest of the trip.
When we took the same trip in the Chieftain or towing the trailer, we got about 7 mpg, 40 gallons of gas. We have not refilled yet, but based on the fuel gage reading, it looks like around 25 or so gallons. That is good, our truck only gets around 18 to the gallon.
One interesting thing it drove like it had a 5 Star Tune or similar. When it downshifted, it went to 4th gear, 3rd on steep hills, we crossed the Arbuckle Mountains on I35.
We really like the 27K so far.
