Hello to everyone

Hi all and thanks for allowing me in the forum. I am retired Air Force and retired civil service. Married with three adult children, ten grandchildren and one great grandchild. We are on our second RV. Our first was a 2005 Itasca Sunova 35' gasser. We had it for 6 years and then a tornado decided we needed a change by ripping the roof off. Now we have a 2010 Four Winds Hurricane 31G. We downsized by three feet but improved our fuel economy by about 33%. Went from 6 mpg to about 8 mpg towing a Toyota Corolla. I am pretty electro-mechanically inclined as my profession was a radio electronics tech for over 40 years.

Welcome to the Forum Ricky from another Floridian and retired military electronics tech (US Navy/Nuclear).

That's an amazing gas mileage improvement and we can all use some help on gas mileage.

If you have a questions, don't hesitate to ask - we have a ton of knowledge spread around here so help yourself to some of it.
