Trip report

Renton, Wa. - Sedona, Az

Total miles - 3099 (US) miles

Total days - 18 (Dec 21, 2020 - Jan 7, 2021)

Total oil consumed - ~ 1/2qt (454 TBI 7.4L w/4L80E) 1994 Fleetwood Southwind Storm 28ft (using Valvoline full synthetic 10w-30)

Total fuel cost - $1008.XX

Odometer on RV currently - 68,295

MPG - low of 7.77mpg and a high of 9.70mpg

High MPG was between Livermore, Ca. and Bakersfield, Ca. On the overall trip I hit the 9.XX range (3) times. After Sedona, Az. I headed south and skirted Phoenix then onto Huntington Beach, Ca. (real home). There for a few days then headed north back to Renton (home away from real home).

The only issue I had was I started hearing a clank up front (on rough road) near drivers side. Crawled under and noticed that one of the sway bar bushings was missing. Bought (2) and replaced both the outer front ones. The other crumbled in my hand into (3) pieces upon removing. 20 min fix.

Hope you enjoyed Sedona and didn't bring the virus. Our problem in Sedona is that we can't figure out how to get the tourists to just send their money without coming by.

That's the funny thing with viruses. They have an uncanny ability to spread. Even when no money is to be had.
