Old habits can be good habits as your records indicate Smile.  We just had a front end alignment so only about 30 miles driven on this tank after having that done.  Plan to change air filter prior to leaving for Acadia NP on Sunday. Might look at timing adjustment when we return.  Good info.  Maybe some tweaking will help a bit.
Thanks,
Rose & Earl

Got it Bill.  You have meticulous records there.  Thanks for sharing.  At a glance  there have been times you got some great mpg.  Outstanding! We generally only check our mileage occasionally at the beginning of purchase of a new/different unit to get an idea of how we are doing.  We have only filled the PC 4 times since purchasing in February. My husband was saying maybe we should start keeping a log (that means me Heart Shower).  I'm beginning to think "why worry, we love our PC and traveling to new places no matter what the mileage." I think we will just be cognizant of things we can manage as noted by you folks and then enjoy the trips!
Thanks again. 
Rose and Earl

Thanks Barry Sue.  I think Earl will replace the air filter before we head out.  Always try to watch our speed. Sure would be nice to get 10 mpg, even 9 Cry

Thanks Ron.  Can always count on you to help out on the forum. I guess maintenance means filters and oil, etc. We just changed the oil and only ran the genie for 20 - 30 minutes for maintenance. Husband says he hasn't checked the air filter, so will do that before leaving for Acadia NP this coming Sunday.  I'm guessing with traffic congestion up the east coast things will not improve. We do have the e350 with a slide.  Any other thoughts will be appreciated.
Rose & Earl ThankYou

I'm sure this topic has been discussed at length, but just feel frustrated.  We traded a 30 foot class A for our PC and hoped we would gain at least a little better gas mileage.  Both vehicles have the same Ford e350.  Our class A often got 9 mpgs towing our Ford Escape.  We typically don't go over 65 and are mindful of weight loads.  Have now driven our PC in various conditions, towing and not towing.  Our best mileage todate is 8.5 mpg.  How is it that the same motor on a smaller, more aerodynamic vehicle can't beat a 30 foot long shoebox driven much the same but with a heavier load? Very disappointing. pulling hair out

Welcome to the forum.  Our 2010, 2350 has seat belts in the passenger chair and on the sofa.

This is great.  Just ordered a set.  Thank you for the tip.   I am in SC about an hour away from the company so it is nice to be able to support a local.  I  hated trying to use elastic straps to keep our ill fitting double bed sheets in place. Can't wait for them to arrive.

I did send you a personal reply, but wanted to thank you again for the great information.  It is truly appreciated.  What a great group of folks on this forum.... Smile

We live in SC where almost all our travels start with I-85 to Atlanta or I-26.  My husband refuses to consider any trip that goes through Atlanta.  Can't speak to Birmingham.

Thanks JT.  Just planning ahead and considering where to go and what our next adventure will be.  Good to know access isn't terrible.

Looking for anyone who has visited the WEST Rim of the Grand Canyon.  We want to visit the Skywalk but it appears to be VERY difficult to get to, expensive and the closest camping appears to be in Kingman AZ.  Has anyone attempted this in a PC?

We were afraid of the loss of storage when moving from our roomy class A to our 2350.  When we started transferring our stuff, we realized how much we were hauling that we rarely used.  My husband is brilliant in packing.  Somehow he has two nice aluminum directors chairs, a folding table, a grill, and several plastic storage bens in the drawer/ storage.  The back storage has fishing stuff and who knows what else.  For our fall trip we plan to purchase a lightweight hitch cargo carrier to put our heavy boots and coats or transitional clothing. We haven't missed anything from our class a! We aren't carrying as many groceries, but pulling into a parking lot for a few items is soooo much easier in the PC.

 Can't wait to hear your recap.  Take good notes for us. We will only boondocking three nights when we get there in October! Be safe and have a blast! Heart Shower

We even went into Canada with our doxie.  I admit I don't always read the campground rules, but we never had an issue.  We stayed in nps campgrounds and provincial camp grounds. Of course she weighed about 10 pounds and we never let her off her leash when walking and never ever tied her out like so many people do.  She was always under our control except when she was in the motorhome.  We made sure that we had papers from our vet showing her vaccinations were current and her health was good.
