What a difference!!

About a month and a half ago I decided to get a diablew tune. We bought a travel trailer back in March and I pulled it up camping back on Memorial Day. It was the first long trip pulling it with my truck. It pulled it good but seemed to be lacking. At the time I just had the canned 87 tune. The trailer was fully loaded with water when we went up so we were around 5200 lbs trailer weight not counting all of our stuff. I pulled it back from our camping spot today with the lew tune for the first time. WOW. It was a huge difference. It used less fuel and wasn’t up and down shifting like the first time. I could tell a difference when I first got the tune without pulling but man this was amazing. Way different.

Hats off to you Lew. Awesome love it. Anyone thinking about a custom tune from Lew you won’t be disappointed.

I'm interested because I just bought a travel trailer (3900lbs unloaded) and am curious what kind of advantages I will realize...particularly in the gas mileage area....pulled this camper home from purchase about 5.5 hours and my mileage went from around 19.7 to 10.5.

I've also got an email to Lew sent.

You won’t see a big change in mileage. However in my experience I seen changes elsewhere as I stated.
