Maiden voyage - Flight 22FB & Ram 2500

Traveled from Texas to Florida for the maiden voyage of our TT & TV. Both performed great during the trip. We're now setup in Milton, Fl at our first campsite. We're planning a week here, a week in Orlando, and a week in the Keys. Should be fun.

I just loved the Keys, some 30 years ago, camped on the beach for a week and fished those great waters. Thanks for bringing back a great memory.

How was your fuel mileage? I have a 2008 2500 6.7,and a 2010 19bh.
The best I can get is a little over 10mpg hand calculated.

My mileage was 12mpg per the trip computer. I only have 1,100 miles on the truck so don't know if it will increase with added miles, or not. Without the TT I get 20mpg on the highway.

Can't go by the overhead. Mine is usually about 2-2 1/2 mpg higher than
hand calculated. You are probably getting around the same as me. Running
dry, or with my 800 lb harley in the bed the best I have done is just over 18 mpg hand calculated. My old 2005 2500 5.9 I got just over 22 mpg running the same way.

Yup, the overhead just makes you feel better when you look at it. Don't expect much change with more miles, mine has 33K and never changed.
