MPG. ?
 
I have. 2000 Monaco 40í Dynasty GVR 32000# pulling a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Iíve averaged 9 mpg pretty much constantly. I drive 65 mph on the hwy. Donít take off fast either. Cummins 350 ISC w/ Allison 6 speed auto. I also add a qt. of cheep automatic trans fluid at fill ups for lubrication for the fuel system. The low sulfur diesel fuel dries out o rings and it helps injectiors too. ( its oil , it burns.)
Guardrail 53 has it right. Maintain your MH and use it. Donít let it sit for more than a month. MOVE IT.
Excersize the generator, A/Cís etc
Most of my driving in the Southern US.
PS.... I have an AquaHot diesel boiler system which has a small effect on my mileage. ( It isnít running all the time).
