Just had JR's RV in Findlay go over the roof and all the vents. Pulled them and replaced them all. New vent fans and all are now installed and re, newly sealed so We should be fine.

I took the coach out for the first time today and it did great. 70mph was no problem, went to a small town called Post that is off the caprock from Libbock and has the only thing close to a hill to go up. Went up the hill around 57 to 60 mph, I have towed boats up this same hill with the same speed results so was very happy.

Had a little shake in the steering wheel at higher speeds, so I'm going to get alignment and wheel balance checked.

Way to go, Chuck...you won't want to stop...
While they're balancing and aligning, have them check the integrity of the front airbags...if they are original, they may be shot or ready to give out...

Question

Another question, the cabinets above the dash has a two gang ivory blank cover over a hole cut between the cabinet doors. Anyone know what was there?

In that same spot on my 90-345LE is an indoor/outdoor digital temperature display panel.

ccetex- I forgot to mention that I've read other threads here concerning this same display panel so I'm guessing that they were factory installed.

And possibly PO removed...? Ours has the thermometer readings(Inside/Outside)...the outside sensor should be attached to the driver's side rear view mirror...I have NO idea where the inside sensor is, tho' I suspect it is behind the gauge...

Thanks everyone, the thermometer makes sense. I wish it was still there, would be nice to have if they are accurate.

I went to Lowe's and found a remote unit that had a nice, flat gauge face that fit nice over the opening.

the remote sending unit has wind and rain also ! 70 to 120 $ can buy a nice unit of your choice

We went about 350 miles this weekend to show my parents the coach, they loved it. Everything worked great, 70mph pretty much all the way there and back, up to 75mph when needed.
My only question is if 4.5 to 5 miles per gallon is about right at this speed with a pretty good head wind coming home and a cross/head wind going?
Chuck
