I have a 2003 E350 EB with the 5.4 V8. Low mileage, runs perfectly, tuned "spot on", etc. Yet I'm getting only 14.3 mpg [regular gas] driving 55 - 60 mph via cruise control, with no "jack rabbit"...

Re: your "didn't have a good experience" with the pre-oiler system, could you elaborate on that? I don't want to "pull the trigger" on something that might be problematic.

Great camper and great price. Unfortunately I can't use it unless I built a whole new garage. Top is too high! The stock P/H just barely fits.

Venting the toilet / shower compartment?

What's the best way to vent a toilet / shower compartment? Electric fan/vent? Advice on which fan/vent [manufacturer?]? I'm assuming that the compartment door will seal the compartment.
