2014 Palazzo 33.2 w/ 2014 Honda CRV

Just got back to Vegas from a 2,600 mile trip up through Idaho, Oregon, Seattle, down the West coast of Oregon, California, then over to Reno and back to Vegas
I usually drive between 65-70 depending on the wind conditions.
Going to Idaho was 9.2mpg
The rest of the trip was 10.0 mpg
Got back to Vegas last nigh and was at 9.9mpg

Pretty good mpg I think. Better than I get in my 04 F250 diesel truck

I pull jeep grand cherokee. I get about 9.5 to 10 while towing. The biggest factor is not towing but the speed and direction of the wind and my speed. Slower speed, better mileage; less headwind, better mileage.

Just got home from 2250 mile trip through Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri, entire trip averaged 9.5 mpg.
Better than expected.

2018 33.3

Nothing in Tow: Avg 10 mpg 60-70 mph.

Towing Jeep 2 door Rubicon 8.8-9.6 mpg depending on terrain 60-70 MPH

Towing 24' v-nose aluminum enclosed trailer with race car, golf cart, tools, etc 8.5- 9 mpg 60-70 MPH

This is primarily northeast terrain. Once I get south on flatter terrain I've seen better fuel mileage.

We drove a short round trip last weekend to a campground pulling our Honda CR-V and only got 7.6 mpg on mainly smooth rolling roads. I have a good new air filter, new oil . Trying to figure out why I am not getting better mpg. I drive 65-68 mph. There was no wind or rain while driving and the engine seemed to work great.

I weighed the coach last night at a local CAT scale. Now I am looking for a tire pressure chart to see what the pressure should be ( front and rear) based on my front and rear axle weights.
Where can I find a chart ?

The manufacturer of the tires has a chart. Each brand is different. Mine are Michelin so I have that chart if you need it. They are usually available on the manufacturer website specific to the tire model.

I try to run around 110 pounds all around. I've read about weighing and adjusting pressure to have the smoothest ride but for me low pressure is more tire heat and resistance on the road. I recently installed a tire pressure monitor system. I start out at 106 psi cold and watch it go up to 112-116 as the tires heat up. So far my tires only get about 8-10 degrees above the ambient temperature.

I had my front and rear axels weighed along with total weight. Ideally you weigh all 4 corners separately. The tire pressure chart for my rig shows ideal 85psi front (which is great because it rides so much smoother) and 95-100 psi rears. Each coach will be different based upon weight distribution and type of tire. Too low could lead to tire failure. Too high is bad for wear and rough riding.

Hello Ed, what brand tires do you have on your coach ? Is your coach a 33.3 model ?

Ed,

I just saw that your coach is a 33.3
But still want to know what brand tires you have. I have Goodyear tires that are load range H.
