Brought It Home Today

Pretty uneventful 100 mile trip, the colorado handled the 2015 Jayco 23RB just fine. I was disappointed in the 10.3 mpg, but I think it was all mainly uphill and the dic showed an increase in mpg the further I went, also rpm's dropped.
I think the computer was relearning how to shift with all that weight in tow/haul mode, hope so anyhow.
My first jayco. Someone is supposed to come and look at my old terry resort tonight, hopefully they buy it.

Congrats on the new rig!!! As for the mpg, remember, you are pulling a rolling brick behind you. Most are happy with 10mpg.

Congrats!

That's a pretty truck!

10 mpg isn't bad at all for what you've got going on.
