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.

Yep! Now, after 100000 miles on the clock, I simply enjoy the trip and the weather. Only thing I do watch is fueling OUTSIDE California. Advantage of a large fuel tank....Dennis

Thank you for the trip report. It came at a good time as we are looking into a motorhome after pulling a fifth wheel for years.
