changed my sig just a minute ago.

Fuel? What's that? The lifetime number in the alladin system was 6.0
I got 6.7 on my first tank, cruise control locked at 65 mph.
7.2 on tank 2, not so much time on the cruise and driving faster, mostly 70 plus, sometimes near 80. This bus is smooth as silk, and she seems to like to let her hair down.

And the only thing Lazydays took care of was getting a new hitch welded on, the rest they just waited us out, seems they knew we would run out of time. The did pull the fireplace out when I told them the toilet leaked all over the floor the first time I used it. Now the fireplace doesn't work anymore. They probably didn't plug it back in, but I'll have to remove it to fix it. Oh well, whatever.
Lazydays is far in the rearview mirror at this point.

Congrats! Beautiful....and a word about Lazydays...they were our second choice due to a used unit we wanted (but found ours with much lower miles in Panama City FL) but I want to plug our salesman Jeff Agans. He went above and beyond (but not pushy at all) trying to get our business & find the unit we were looking for. We'd go to him in a new york minute if we wanted another coach & they had what we were looking for.

Just back from a week in the Smoky mountains. We stayed in the Tremont CG in Townsend (highly recommended), took 2 days to get out there (including a night in a rest area next to big idling for no reason diesels) and a slow 3 days getting back, including a fun day in Nashville and a monsoon night in the shawnee nat'l forest.

We've put 4500 miles on her in what, 5 weeks, maybe six?
Coach is perfect. Runs and drives great. Everything works. A few things I want to change, and a couple minor maintenance items I should take care of, but so far, so good. Here's a couple new pics.
