This is like a test run before my wife and I buy "our" coach... This is a nice little deal that works great with my job. The first lesson I have learned is to have the dealership not just tell you everything works but show that yes indeed it does (rear ac/heater does not come on) and a tankless water heater is my newfound obsession!

yeah only 5.3 mpg? I get nearly 17 mpg

On my 1981 Midas with a p30 and Chevy 454 Big block. And its carbureted. Must be driving style I guess. Or how are you measuring your mpg? On these bigger rigs its essential to calculate it and drive it using very certain methods or you will never end up with good mileage numbers.

Package that deal up and sell it, you'll make a million dollars

Before you go and replace that A/C unit, make sure you flip the switch up front to run the rear A/C. It may be perfectly fine.
