Most modern diesel fuel has good additives in it but it sounds like you donít run your coach enough to push a lot of fuel through your tank. Just a thought, I may be way off. A good maintenance schedule and good preparation can save you a lot of money in repairs.
Will be driving approximately 90 miles before topping it up and parking for six months in a campground where we will be using it on weekends. Thankyou for the tip and thankyou to everyone who has posted..

Good advice here. I'm going this week to fill up my tank. We returned after Christmas from Florida and have a 1/4 tank in the bus. Filling it up Tuesday will be close to 150 gallons. Best to keep it topped off for longer storage. The price of diesel around here is at $2.10 or so with the TSD card. Not bad in my book.

We headed across the state to evacuate from one of the hurricanes.

The resort we stayed in I believe was a Class A only, less than 10yo type of park. It is obvious, they have changed to just less than 10yo...b/c as people realize they donít actually drive their motor homes...they have switched to high end Luxury Fifth Wheels.

Every Sixth months, or whatever, they get a delivery company to move it from covered storage to their lot. In the off season itís back to the storage yard and they rent out their site. The ones that donít rent have their units hurricane strapped to ground anchors.

If I only put 90 miles on a Motorhome and then let it sit in one place for six months...I would be looking into nice fifth wheels. Not much running gear to maintain on those...compared to a Motorhome. They usually have higher ceilings, larger showers, even ceiling fans....

We love our Motorhome...but itís advantage over a Fifth Wheel is that it moves under itís own power frequently. I find it easier to set up/and break camp... If we parked it for long periods and didnít really do long trips...I would prefer a fifth wheel again.

I agree with you except for the choice I would make is the longest TT available to not have the stairs and get two doors in almost every floor plan
Just makes sense if you really aren't going to benefit from the setting up side of things
