Welcome to the forum! You can do a search and find previous answers to each of your questions.
What do you consider bad gas mileage? If the air filter is OK, about all you can do to boost the mileage is slow down!
I haven't been in your model, but I think you have a folding bed, right? We use a bed topper and a thin comforter, which prevent the mattress from folding flat. I rigged up a bungee cord to keep it folded when on the road. We use standard queen sheets, which don't fit all that well but we tuck the excess under. Some have used their sewing skills to modify those sheets, and some have ordered sheets specially made for camper queens. Be thankful you didn't buy a rig with a corner bed!
I have a small 1100 wt inverter to run a computer charger, fan or a crock pot. I mounted it on the wall by the passenger seat and the cords run down into a compartment and then back to the coach batteries. I have no intention of running TVs or the refrig on it or running separate outlets.
