Coast to Coast membership question

Can any forum members provide information on the Coast to Coast membership program. Specifically hidden costs and the availability of campsite bookings. Any opinions will be welcome. Thanks

RE: Portable heat.....

We picked up a quartz heater in a style of a wooden box with controls on the front. I am sorry I can't describe it any better, but I hope you know what I am trying to describe. We took out the small table that sat between our recliners and screwed the lamp to the top of it. We have rarely used the furnace since installing it. Although it is more than $50, we feel it is perfect.

RE: Forest River Sierra / Open Range - quad bunks??

We have had our Open Range 345RLS for two years and have had no serious issues. I will certainly consider another one when it comes time to replace this one. It is important to remember that Open Range is an independant manufacturer, and positive current owners opinions are an incredibly cost effective advertising program. They work very hard at solving customer's problems, and have many satisfied owners. Check out the Open Range Owners Forum.

RE: Auto slide hitch question

Thanks pipewelder. Yes, I have spoken to Nick. He advised me about drilling, tapping AND trimming. By chance was your Airborne the regular profile instead of the extended? The regular is higher and shorter. The extended is much longer, especially the plate which is 20 inches long. I appreciate everyone's help, but when Nick at Pulliam tells me the capture plate needs to be "trimmed", and the dealer tells me that metal as thick as the capture plate will most likely have to be cut with a torch, well, this is why I would REALLY, REALLY like to find out if the Demco capture plate which is an exact fit will work with the Pullrite.

RE: Auto slide hitch question

Thanks for the replies, guys. I was in fact in contact with Pulliam. The issue here is that the pinbox is not the standard Airborne, but the extended Airborne. I received a reply from Nick who advised that the pinbox would require drilling and tapping, and the front of the "universal" capture plate would require "trimming". The plate is thick enough that "trimming" would likely require a cutting torch. The dealer that ordered the hitch and universal plate advised me that he didn't want to make a "Frankenstein" mess and advised that the custom Demco capture plate would be a perfect fit, would attach and remove easily, and would be infinity more appropriate to my application. What I would really like to find out from any forum members is if the Demco capture plate will work with the Pullrite hitch. The dealer advises me that it will, but I would far rather have this verified by a fellow forum member.

Auto slide hitch question

We want to get an auto slide hitch. The problem we are running into is with our Reese 5th Airborne extended pinbox. I would prefer a Pullrite, but the capture plate reccomended by Pullrite is a universal one that requires bending and welding. Demco have a specific capture plate for this pinbox, model 6062 which simply bolts on and off. The dealer assured me that the Demco capture plate will work with the Pullrite hitch. Do any forum members have any experience using a Demco capture plate with a Pullrite hitch. If it is not compatible we will go with the Demco Hijacker hitch. Thanks for any input.

RE: Heartland Landmark

We owned a Heartland TT for two years and found it trouble free. More importantly I found that factory contact through the Heartland Owners Forum to be exceptional. We moved to a different manufacturers coach only because Heartland 5th's were poorly represented at the dealer level in our area at the time of purchase. I would most definitly buy another Heartland product as soon as they retain a proper dealer in our area. Great product, great factory contact.

This suggestion may or may not be pertinent in your situation, but at the start of every season I pull the cover off the breaker box and tighten every connection screw, ground connections included. Also tighten the connections on the converter output, battery connections and battery ground connection at the frame. Last year I found the frame ground connection loose despite checking it the year before. Humps and bumps takr their toll.

RE: LCD's and cold weather

We take ours out for two reasons. -35 just can't be good for anything. Plastic, circuit boards, solder joints. Temperature swings cause condensation. (Remember the days of metal fuel tanks?) and secondly, the electronic equipment is a whole more difficult to steal if it's in your house as opposed to in your RV. It takes less than 5 minutes to take out our two TV's, so I consider that to be a good cost effective insurance policy. A tip for anyone removing a TV with more than a couple of hookup cables: take a photo of the back of the TV before removing the cables. It makes it a whole lot easier "remembering" how to hook it up next year.
