RE: Disc brakes NOT working with GM integrated control

We had this with our 2011...the simple fix is to wire two brake magnets into the pig tail of the fifth wheel...it "fools" the controller into believing you have electric brakes and will immediately send power to the disc brakes. Worked for us for 4 years. This problem was corrected in our 2015 Chevy.

RE: New Carriage?

What is with the delete of rear caps. Montana has to be spec'd just so to get one. Grand Design high end Solitude lacks a rear cap. On and on! Next you know Thor will drop it on the MS. Chris doubt that...it's been what, six years...Landmark, Bighorn and Big Country still have rear caps...

RE: 6 point Level up system - will it lift trailer?

No problem...have used it many times to change tires, etc. As for twisting the frame...not gonna happen. Level up is designed so that all legs work in unison keeping the frame "flat and square" at all times. If you lift one side the other drops keeping everything straight...it will "time out" once the legs over extend.

RE: Competition for the Anderson Ultimate ??

RE: Burglar Alarm?

We use Simplisafe. It's a fully monitored system, $24.99 a month, no contract. Even monitors our smoke detector.

RE: Chevy integrated brake system

If you are having trouble with your ibc and hydraulic brakes just take two brake magnets and clamp them to the frame, wire them in parallel with the actuator set your controller to electric. It will think it's working with electric brakes not hydraulic. Denny This is what we did with our 2011 Chevy to make the hydraulic disc brakes work...the problem was solved with the 2015 that we have now. As for the OP's question...we've been towing with a 2015 for over a year and about 10K miles...no problem with the trailer tires.

RE: Best All Year Four Seasons Full Time Fifth Wheels

JMO but 3 seasons is enough for me. If I was full timing and had the freedom to move around, the last place I'd want to be is the place where the weather is either extremely cold, hot or raining for days on end. Isn't that the idea to go full timing? To have the freedom to go and do whatever and wherever you want? I understand that having a true 4 season trailer would be needed if you're going to stay somewhere where it's 25* for days on end. But geez who the heck wants to live out retirement putting up with that? Most people that leave the cold for the heat and vice versa are doing so because they can. It's one thing to be somewhere where the weather takes a turn real quick and you need to tough it out. But some planning ahead would take care of that. If you're not in control of yourself while on the road then maybe you need to address why you're not. I'm not sure what's stopping anyone full timing from hitching up and going where they want. If you're camp hosting then that's different. Weather can turn nasty at times in certain areas of the country. If it's a money issue then it sounds like full timing is the wrong life style. If you're the guy that's living in a van down by the river then that explains it. In our situation, it's because we go where the work is...at least for the next seven months. We chose a rig that can handle temps below freezing for long periods of time. This will be tested fully for the next couple of months...we're leaving Wyoming in about a week to spend November and December in PA. However, since we've already spent about a week last year below zero, without issue, we don't expect it to be a problem...

RE: Another Grand Design Podcast - pretty cool.

There is no better company in this industry at responding to customer issues. Try to get your other main line manufacturers to overnight parts to a customer when they are broken down somewhere. Will never happen...Heartland will! B.O. Agreed...Heartland has over nighted us parts on several occasions...

RE: Another Grand Design Podcast - pretty cool.

I know 2 people with Grand Designs and they have done zero-zip to advance their RV's since they started except more floor plans...STILL 10in frame,same Cheap Stereo,DVD"Suround Sound" ,No central vacuum's, no ceiling fans ,no back cap,ETC.....Etc... they are NOT bad rv's but besides their good customer service there is nothing special about them, both of my friend's Solitudes have been back to the Dealer many times for repairs just like every other brand,I think Every brand puts out these Podcasts and Videos on there Quality and their vision for the Future etc...they are all the same Blah Blah Blah ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Couldn't agree more!! Have looked at many, not the least bit impressed...

RE: Automatic levelers on uneven ground

In our experience with Level-Up it takes a pretty un level site to cause the system to "stroke out"...we occasionally need use blocking on the low site of an un level site, but it's nothing major. After a while you'll learn to "read" a site and know when to block and when not to...

RE: P trap problem - heed help!

Try Rescue Tape....www.rescuetape.com...works great on this type of application and can be easily removed...will make a permanent seal though.

RE: Fulltimers....what's your favorite 5er?

We have full timed for over ten years....six of those in a Heartland Bighorn, and the last three in a Heartland Landmark. The Landmark has served usVERY well, as did the Bighorn, in temps from over 100 down to -6 with NO issues whatsoever. If you looking at new, the Landmark and the Bighorn are not only built for full time use, they are also warrantied in writing for full time use...

RE: Hate my john !!!

your biggest issue is the holding tank...the only way to use a household toilet, without worrying about the tank clogging, is to remove the tank and plumb toilet straight to the sewer connection.

RE: Verizon plan changes!

The site shows you a before/after bill comparison, so it's easy to see how much you may save (or not.) Last October when Verizon was running a special ("More Everything") after killing off Millenicom, I picked up a 40GB data plan for the price of a 20GB plan. If I tried this with Verizon's newest plan, I'd end up paying about $100 more. I'll stick with More Everything. I'm with you...I'm not giving up my 40 Gig plan....

RE: STRANGE OCCURRANCE

I had a severe accident years ago...hit broadside and rolled over in my van. It took me almost 48 hours for my complete memory of the incident to come back....very scary when you can't remember a block of time. I would get checked for a concussion though....

RE: Disappointed!!!!!!!

We love to rant and complain but If we took the time to inspect our RV's top to bottom before pulling off the lot 95% of the issues would be found and corrected on day 1. A new house requires a punch list to make it 100% right an RV does as well. Being the DIY type helps as well but if your DIY skills are lacking. It becomes more important to do a thorough PDI. Bingo! That's what we did three years ago...haven't had any problems to speak of.
