There should be a separate breaker for the microwave since that is the code. Question, how did you access the MPG readout? I am learning about the dash information display and have not found it yet.

Little 4 way toggle switch on left side of dash. Scroll down until you get to leg mpg and then scroll right to see other options. Ie instant mpg or leg mpg.

Yup. Best thing is to keep them rolling. Keeps the rubber "alive" so it doesn't harden and crack. So I'm going to stay on the road as much as possible ! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Lol

No. That's more like a clanging noise.

Mike,

Just returned from 2 week stay at Fort Wilderness on Oct 20th, 800 loop and enjoyed it as we always do. Too bad we didn't overlap, would have enjoyed meeting ... Will be back end of April.

I also averaged >11 mpg for entire round trip from Charlotte.

Thanks, I went out and tried lots of scrolling and found MPG. It said 11.3 and I hope it is right. I can never accept those numbers with out calculating miles and fuel between fill ups. The trick for me will be to remember how I scrolled to reach each part of the display.

That would be nice in April , We stayed in the 300 loop very nice and wooded
we saw 4 small deer as we where leaving and one yesterday my 5 year old was in AWWW. It's funny how different it is seeing a animal in the wild vs the zoo, she get's so excited " Priceless "
