Good move, Ron!  This might be a good move for others, as well as the factory.  We can all likely use upgrades or features we didn't order, and its a great incentive to help with sales.

I agree with the leather over cloth too...has many advantages...

THANK YOU ALL, for your kind thoughts, and most of all, your prayers. It's nice to have friends who share concerns...

Your prayers worked well with us...lights flickered twice, but the power stayed on ( I had the generator charged and running the day before, and stuff as secured as I could get it). The house is highs so no flooding with the 10.5 inches of rain, and we were very fortunate. However, I really don't particularly want to sit through winds higher than 75 mph!!!

You guys are great!!,

Thanks Bob - yes, in fact I have the Delvac Mobile with the MSB spec with me if I need it, but haven't so far.
All the best,

Do you think the owner of any other manufacturer would work with the black water plumbing in 104 degree heat???
Go Phoenix!!! (and Kermit!!!)

Carol...

It should definitely get better!!! My first tanks were around 14 as noted.  Also, the 16-18 numbers were, for the most part at 50-55 mph.  My experience has been that speed is the major factor rather than terrain, etc.  At 70 plus, I was also around the 15 range, and would imagine it close to that now that my rig is "broken in" somewhat.
Also, I have had alignment & keep the tires up...

Anyway, you should see improvement.

Best,
Jack

Carol...

I did the same, and thought I had the answer...not the "d" but the "s" or wHatever that first unit is... I'm going to check the fitting to see which one the Sprinter has...will let you know if someone doesn't answer first.

Not to change the subject, but does the scan gage work on the Mercedes?

Thanks,

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I said I'd elaborate on the milage from a recent 6 week trip to the Canadian Maritimes & Newfoundland.  The rig is a 2012, 2350 with all the bells and whistles, no toad, fresh water tank filled as needed.  I won't completely describe every stop & fill, but here is a sketch:

Initial trip from Elkhart with STRONG winds & 70-75 MPH - 14.0, 13.6, & 15.6

From home (MD) to Maine - Interstate @ 65-70 mph - 14.0, 15.15.6, 16.5

Trans canada HWY mostly 7 campground- 50-55 mph - 17.9, 17.8

Hwy 1 & 2 - Cabot Trail, HILLS (required down shift) towns & camp - 50-55 mph - 16.6, 15.9, 17.4

Hwy more level, still 50-55 mph - 17.2, 16.6, 17.8, 16.6, 17.9, 17.6, 17.3, 17.2

Hwy - hills, 55-60 - 16.6

Hwy - 55 mostly - 17.5, 16.7, 18.2, 17.5

States - Rt. 1 & towns - 55-60 - 16.4 & 17.1

Interstate to home @ 65 - 16.1

Hope this helps -

I had the same problem, Roni, and Carol (what would we do without her!) sent replacements. I'm going to put L shaped brackets under the plastic fittings for support. It's not a replacement, but I'm hoping it will help.

Kevin...

We took 3 weeks to "do" the trace 2 years ago ... I would only suggest take your time! Sights are available throughout, and national parks (free to modest $) are available as well. You'll enjoy it all, and great restaurants on the waterfront in Vicksburg!

I'm in Canada now, with VERY sketchy email - wifi when I can get it, but would be happy to contact you when I return....
Indeed, I know the problems with the air mattress & mechanical sofa, if that's what you have.  The folks at Phoenix do have a solution in swapping an electric sofa bed, with extra foam that was much more comfortable.  You may want to give them a call....

Will email you anyway...

Best,
Jack

If you should get an extra day or two, I highly recommend Indiana Dunes SP....very reasonable, many good things, and cold water!! (lake Mi) Linda went in, but macho Me stayed on the beach!
