I think that is one of the best features......would be the check engine light and it's cause.

Will the bay (basement area) support a 50 gallon aux tank? Is it too heavy? its an easy purchase in Amazon and not that tricky to install a switched fuel pump transfer.

I have run silverleaf for years. I purchased a 10Ē tablet that has a usb connector as that is very important. My tablet is a walkinbook that you can get on amazon cheap. It is a 10.1Ē tablet / laptop combo. The keyboard pops off.

It is connected 100% of the time. I put mine over the ac vent by the drivers window which works great

Hand calculated, every single gallon since I bought it, I get 7 MPG on my 2015 Anthem, including all Aqua-Hot & Generator usage. I get 8-8.5 when driving. I have gotten 1100 miles on one tank... once. But I got 137 gallons in the tank... I was running on fuel vapor and took it easy and had a 1000 mile tailwind and didn't stop.

I am completely satisfied with range on the 150 gal tank. I would also prefer 200 gallons for a better ability to 'tanker' cheaper diesel when found.

If I'm towing heavy, which I definitely have done, I've gotten as low as 6 MPG. But that's hauling 25,000lbs uphill, against the wind, WOT the whole time.

I have to really say, I'm completely thrilled and satisfied with the 450HP Cummins. It's not a race RV, but it'll go 95 MPH downhill and I'll tell you one thing.... that's fast enough for me!

I got a 16 CS with 60,000 miles, I average 6.5 for all those miles with aqua hot and gen, with 200 plus hrs. I once did speed run in Tx at speeds in excess of 85 and fuel went down to 5 mph, no more. I tow a half ton dodge and run about 3-5 over limit.

2015 anthem mpg.

My 2015 Entegra Anthem 44b with 21k miles Fully serviced and proper air pressure gets approximately 9.1 mpgs traveling At 60 mph. That's coach only, basic necessities and 2 passengers & full tank of fuel minimal water. Computer and fuel top off confirmed. With Jeep Willy's diesel toad (5100lbs) connected and fully loaded We get approximately 8 MPgs. My suggestion is to use your fuel computer Instant Read out and find a flat area and test for yourself. At 60,65 70 etc. And you will see how the MPgs degrade rapidly. Engine transmission and gear ratio are designed for an optimal speed At approximately 60 miles per hour, anything above that you can expect poor fuel economy.

I am getting 7.5 mpg from my 22. My 17 got 7.
I drive between 60 and 72 depending on road conditions.

I think the mountains make more difference than a few mph to my mpg.
