Hi, Garjud,

I don't have any idea what mileage you should expect from your Cummins and Allison transmixer in your new-to-you motorhome, but I want to welcome you to at least this forum and at least to the world of the mighty Cummins. How in the world did you escape welcome for two whole days?

I'm also a member at a couple of Cummins forums that would welcome you, too. Send me a PM if you'd like the URLs.

I get 12.5 in mine pulling a 34' trailer I would expect you to get similar. My load is around 17,500 lbs 5speed stick but 4x4.

Welcome to the forums and the world of AS motor homes. You have purchased a beautiful motor home which should give you many years and miles of fun. I hope to see you up here in the mid-west.

1994 Motorhome

Hi folks, We just purchased a 1994 Diesel Pusher with 44,000 miles on it. We had it re-carpeted and have replaced the starter, alternator and batteries. We drove it for the first time this week, about 500 miles. The former owner swore that they got 13-14 miles per gallon doing about 65 miles per hour. Guess we will soon find out if that is correct. Good luck in your new venture. This is our first experience at RVing. Wendell
