RE: Heartland Big Country 5th Wheels

No big problems with ours either. We have a 3251TS and use an average of 100 nights per yr. Fender skirt and a cracked decal is all I've ever taken it back for. I've changed a couple things more to my liking but overall it's great. Anything could shine after the last one we had where something needed replaced continually. BC has lots of insulation so heating and cooling is easy and the outside stays out there and less noticeable.

RE: The Hitch after Rain

Or did this thread go from 5th wheel to TT "Like" Personally, I don't like people sliding through tight spaces that would make it possible to hit my hitch. Nor will I do the same to other people's vehicles. I give others respect that includes staying out of the bubble around their vehicle and I hope they return the favor to me. Really no need to be so close.

RE: Anybody Have A SxS

I have two Rangers. One for work pulling carts and running for parts and the other just stays at home to push snow and move thing around the yard. I don't need them to go fast, just get me there easily. And they ride good too.

RE: Winnebago Destination 37FL Rust

I have no idea really but I would highly doubt it is powder coated. I haven't seen one built lately that has a decent coating on it. Probably just a quick spray job and out the door it goes. Heck, take a close look at the welds on a Lippert frame. I've seen better welds in high school welding class. Also, is it worth the fight to try and get a new camper when this could be remedied with a little spray paint? All the stress and ultimately "non use" of the present unit only to possibly get another with the same or different problems to boot? I say no. Go out and enjoy yourself and worry over the big things. The little ones will get fixed and the thought of them will fade away. Don't sweat the small stuff. I think you are in a mindset that you will look for every little thing based on the past history on the unit. Winnebago only threw their name on the front of another unit that was already being built. That's about as far as the namesake quality goes. Good luck

RE: Hydraulic landing gear drifting

Thanks for the replies. I haven't witnessed it again personally and that makes it hard to diagnose. (And how do you tell DW that she is just hearing things in her head?) It is just the front jacks, not a level up system. One of the options this unit didn't come with. I'll have to look into it more when home. From what I've gathered it's not a show stopper problem so I'll just monitor the situation for now.

RE: Hydraulic landing gear drifting

Thank you donn. I checked for oil and found none. Maybe leaking back into the tank I guess.

Hydraulic landing gear drifting

I have our camper parked where the front is relatively high off the ground and the landing legs in front have been drifting slightly. Every so often you will hear a pop or thump and the camp wiggles a bit. Been lying here in bed for about 30 minutes now and haven't witnessed it yet (DW said it happened again) but I did experience it last night before bed. I lowered the gear myself some thinking I could have overextended the legs but it apparently didn't help. Lippert landing gear. Wondering if a relief got weakened and won't hold the pressure. Thoughts? TIA

RE: re-direct generator exhaust

You will still need to lift it out and check/change oil. No way to open the compartment where oil check is with it in the storage bay. I would not do this with a bay that wasn't specifically designed to hold a generator. Hard to get proper air flow and the risks outweigh the benefits. Good luck

RE: Short bed manuvering

Don't really need one. Towed 95% with short bed GM trucks and never had a slider yet. On my third fifth wheel in five years and haven't seen a reason for one yet.

RE: new truck hitch

I have a short bed one ton and a companion. Haven't needed a slider yet. Before that I had a short bed 3/4 ton and a pro series non slide hitch. Flat front coachmen fifth wheel and never had a problem with that either. Just be mindful of what's going on in tight situations and save your money.

RE: Keystone Cougar (2010) Cable ?

Turn the booster in the bedroom on and crank up the antenna. You will get digital channels. Hook up coax to outside source that has cable and turn off booster to get cable TV. Hook up satellite coax from dish to sat hookup in water closet and mount receiver in bedroom on the generic cable port and you will get satellite channels. (Again, make sure the booster is off.) Had the same camper and didn't like the idea of mounting the receiver in the bedroom so I rewired it to be in living area. Basically, I ran a new wire to the watercloset port from the TV area in the living room.

RE: Changing Electrical cord from 7 round to 7 flat - How to?

Just switch it out. It's hard. Most packages have diagrams and instructions on how to do it.

RE: are you towing with a short bed crew cab?

Contoured cap, short bed. No slider. Ditto.

RE: MidWest TC/F Gathering in IOWA 4/24-26/15

I hope the weather works out for you. I tried organizing a rally in eastern Iowa in 2008 that never happened. The park closed temporarily because of the flood. Never rescheduled. Have fun.

RE: Is the 2015 CHEVY SILVERADO 3500HD a good tow rig

Love my 2015 Silverado. Engine is bullet proof imo. My 2008 is just as good. Only complaint I have is mileage due to the exhaust recycle. I traded a Dodge dually for it. Dodge had a decent motor, although noisey. Seats were hard and flat. I drive the duallys a lot so they need to be comfortable. My father tried a 2012 Ford and traded after one year. Ride and seats were rock hard. Mom couldn't handle the rough ride. It was new and traded for a used duramax and couldn't be happier. Pick whatever you like and have the most knowledge of.

RE: 2015 Montana 3440RL Owner

Oh.. So its a Montana you would like to know about. I could see where people may miss that point after you requested to speak to people who already have this model Montana. Boy, this is gonna be hard. Good luck. There may be a few road blocks along the way. BTW, I love my Big Country. Hehe Hang in there. We're all in this this together.

RE: Nashville Show This Weekend?

Wow. Ten bucks a head to get in and pay to park too. Sounds like the fairgrounds is wanting to make some quick cash too.

RE: Can't believe folks connecting up sewer without gloves

I didn't wear gloves when I put the stuff in the tank either. Why would it be necessary when I take it out?

RE: Sky View Observatory vs. Space Needle-Seattle

Staying close to the Pike Street Market? An interesting sight to see as well. Don't miss the fish throwing. If close to there then the Space Needle is a short walk as well.
