Silverleaf calibration

I was looking at road speed against a my GPS it was 4mph higher.

In the parameters of road speed I entered -.385, it is now dead on.

I also saw the cruise control needed that same correction.

Do you think the mileage is affected the same way.

Any other advanced tips

What about your Speedometer, is it also off???

My guess is yes but the question is why is it off. Are the current tires the size originally spec'd for the coach??

My Silver leaf tracks very close to my GPS but the speedometer is a couple of mph off.

The one component I've played with on both coaches is the mpg. It took me several trips, but each time I filled the coach, I adjusted the mpg setting. I'm pretty close now. If the Silverleaf says I used 43 gallons, it usually takes within a gallon of that number.
