Cool Lexington power

We are new to rving. We just brought home our very first rv. It's a Forest River Lexington 2010, new. We live in a mountainous region of Western Maryland. We drove back from Greencastle, PA and could only go about 35mph on some of the mountains. We were wondering if anyone has had any experience with this problem. We would think that with no load and one person in the rv it would do better on mts. I followed in our van and my husband drove. Any info would be helpful as no matter where we go we have mts. to get there.

Congrats on the new rig Depending on the grade, if its a gasser on some of the hills that might be all there is . Did it down shift ok ? What about RPM's ? I have had 3 Class A's. The 2 gassers would only get up to 40 mph in the NC mountains... Good Luck and Safe Travels...D

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new rig. Can't answer your question since I have not yet made it to the mountains in my rig.
