Have some friends with an 2008 HR Endeavor. Bought it from Lazy Days and negotiated to have the washer and dryer removed.
When on generator power the full 50 amps was available. On external power, using 50 amp cable it wasn't getting 50 amps into the control panel and it showed 30 amps and only some of the high load items would work. Technicians at another dealership, who were Monaco trained, found the problem. After removing the washer dryer, the circuit breaker for the washer dryer was opened. Unknown to them control for the electrical system also went through the circuit breaker. Putting it in made everything work.
We like the area north of Titusville, FL. The roads are fairly low traffic. There are many places to kayak with your choice of fresh water (St Johns river) or salt water in Indian River, Mosquito Lagoon or the ocean. We kayak one day and then do a good long bike ride the next day to work all the muscles.
Seasons in the Sun in Mims, FL is a real nice RV park that you can bike from.
We have a 2012 Ford Fusion hybrid. Other versions of the 2012 Fusion cannot be towed but the hybrid can be towed four down, The only restriction is I cannot exceed 75 MPH.
The hybrid has ECVT (Electronically controlled Variable Transmission) which is basically an automatic. When it switches between the engine powered and the battery powered modes it is seemless.
Whether the 2013 hybrid will be toawable is unknown.
After 5,000 miles we are getting 41.8 MPG.
Ford's recent announcement that 2012 Ford Fusions and Escapes are not towable does not say anything about the hybrid versions. The hybrids have an ECVT transmission where the normal Fusions and Escapes have automatic transmissions. The dealer where I bought says he checked with his sources at Ford and there is no problem for the hybrid. The only limitation is to not exceed 75 MPH.
Are there any other Ford hybrid owners out there? Have you heard or found anything different?
I am very pleased with my hybrid Fusion after 3,000 miles. In normal around town driving I am getting about 43 MPG and on a 650 mile Interstate trip in 95 degrees at 70 MPH I got 38.5 MPG. The all electronic dashboard (except for speedometer takes some getting used to. I had the Air Force One brake system installed by dealer along with Blue Ox baseplate, wiring kit with separate bulbs and the cost was $3,050.
