Additional Info:

We are pleased to announce that the Heartland Owners North Texas Chapter will have a Campout in Canton, TX, home of the First Monday Trade Days. The campout will be held at the Mill Creek Ranch Resort. This campout will be during the First Monday Trade Days.

We have 5 sites reserved. If the sites are not reserved by December 2, 2013, the sites will be released back to the resort. After December 2, 2013 reservations can still be made, but the site may not be close to the group.

There will be no rally fee since the Chapter will not be supplying food, drinks, dinnerware, etc. This is a BYOE (everything) event. You may bring friends with or without Heartland products to this event.

When you make reservations, tell the resort you are with the North Texas Heartland Owners Club. After reservations are made, please post in this thread, PM or email nander so you can be added to the list. If you are bringing friends with SOB's, please include their info too.

The resort will also be hosting a New Year's Eve party for $25 per person. There will be music and cash bar. If you are interested in this, please make your reservation accordingly.

Mike and I will be there from Dec. 28 thru Jan. 5, along with new Heartland Bighorn owners Everett Hunt and Fay Eger! We've already got reservations, and got in on the rally rate. Our sites were prechosen by us last January when leaving Mill Creek.....we spend New Year's there every year that we can. Even if we are not in the "rally section," we will be there and participate with our Heartland friends! Patrice Fogarty

Come one, come all to the 2014 Jan Canton, TX Campout. The sites will be released back to the resort on Dec 2, so make your reservations soon.
This is the perfect time to relax after the Christmas rush. Canton Trade Days will be going on for that after Christmas shopping. :cool:

See everyone soon and Merry Christmas!

We are excited about it and if my McNeese Cowboys make it to the FCS/I-aa national championship up in Frisco we will duck out that Saturday for some football. Lol

Nancy--are we going to do a potluck or something? We will be leaving for the RGV from there, but looking forward to a good time. Hope Santa brings us good weather for this outing.

Hi Nan,
I was thinking we could do a potluck Sat evening or maybe go somewhere. Technically, we don't have a room. We can use the RV Lodge if no one else is.

Whatever everyone wants to do.

Not sure what's up other than several possibilities such as EGR, oil cooler and one I don't want to think about, blown head gasket. At least we made it and will just have to get it fixed while here. Just can't spend much while here now. :(

nander

Oh no! I hope it's not a serious problem! We won't be spending much either with new Goodyear tires on the trailer.

See you tomorrow!

Extended warranty ended at 100k miles. I hit 109k on the truck on way up here. Talking to a cousin who lives in Bullard he seems to think it may be EGR valve related as his 6.0 had same issue. Canton ford took care of him but was not cheap, apporx $4k. I was about to put some money into the truck but guess it wanted it sooner rather than later. I will bring it up there in morning and hope they can turn it around quick for us otherwise we may be mooching rides if anyone goes anywhere...lol.

Can't wait to meet everyone as well as we have only met a few forum members. There are a couple Bighorns here along with a landmark another Big Country and a Roadwarrior too. One of the BH and the landmark are club members, not sure about the others.

Having a great time at the campout. I haven't gone to the trade barns but enjoyed the campground and the friends here. Weather has been great. In the 20's at night and 60/70;s during the day. Suppose to get cold at night on Sunday and Monday.

So sorry for your situation. Paul says the solution is to buy a Chevy. LOL It was so nice meeting you guys and feel your pain, though it is usually our trailer that breaks down. Hope all is fixed soon.

Had a great time at the campout this week-end in Canton. What a learning experience with frozen water pipes and waking up to water on the floor in the bathroom. We stayed warm and didn't have any damage to any pipes. We stayed in the park until Wednesday morning before heading home. Thanks to everyone for a fun time.

Yeah I have run in to the freezing on our last two trips so now when it is cold, I just don't use the hose and run off the fresh water tank using the pump. Saves a lot of grief.

When we stay in Durango in December, the park insists everyone must run off tank if the temps are close to freezing. Even the park host!

Well my truck finally made it home from this trip. Lol. Bronson Ford in Athens called me yesterday to tell me new engine was installed and tested and I come get it. Got there by 1pm and got back on road before 2 and had sleet btw Athens and Jacksonville and then cold rain rest of way home. Watched radar along the way and watched snow and ice move in behind us. Now we are dealing with winter mix here with ice and sleet. I am just glad I got my truck back. Lol

Oh my, Andy! You had to put a new engine in it?! Would the first dealer who 'fixed' it give you a refund?
We are happy to hear you made it home safely!

See you down the road.
