Additional Info:
------------------------------
We are pleased to announce the Heartland Owners North Texas Chapter will have a rally in Bullard, TX, south of Tyler. KE Bushman's Camp is part of the Kiepersol Enterprises group that includes a winery. The RV park has an all-season pool & hot tub, concrete road, concrete strips at the sites, 4 pavilions with BBQ grills, and fishing lake. Winery & distillery tours are available for a fee. There is no cable tv.

When you make reservations, tell the park 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.

We have 20 sites reserved. If the sites are not reserved by Sept 10, 2015, the sites will be released back to the resort. After Sept 10, 2015, reservations can still be made, but the site may not be close to the group.

The entrance is on the east side of Hwy 69, just north of FM2493. To locate it on the google map, click search nearby and enter KE Bushman's Camp. The entrance is on Hwy 69. Your gps may have you turn before you get there.

Chapter Leaders have to plan Rallies this far out to reserve many sites together at once. ;)

I doubt Tony and I can make it with the rig, but I'll try to come to visit, like last year.

Rhonda and I will attend. We will arrive on the 9th and leave on the 11th. A word of caution if you are traveling on toll road 49 form I-20, about 4 miles from the interstate is a very large dip in the road when entering onto a bridge. It was quite a ride when we hit this 2 weeks ago on our way to the park. Hopefully this will be fixed before the rally.

It's going to be iffy if we make it now, I just referenced the rally date against football schedule and we have a Cowboys game against the Patriots on the 11th.
I'm going to have to think about it, I'd have to leave at noon or earlier Sunday morning to get back home and get the RV in storage to make it to the game before kickoff.

Hmmmmm...

Is anyone interested in the Winery Tour, which includes 5 tastings? We did this last year and everyone seemed to enjoy it. They also have a distillery that some toured also.

We would need at least 20 people for a group rate (last year was $5).

If you are interested, please post on this thread or send me a PM.

'Lil Guy' we are going to miss you and your huge camping sign, but we will see you and everybody else in Kerrville (and Durant for those who will be there). It seems my lake front area has been volunteered by my wife and one of my daughters to be used for a wedding and reception the very weekend that the Bullard rally is. I know everyone will have a good time and I will really miss the local barbecued brisket and sausage.

Looks like another great turnout. Let's plan on that Friday morning breakfast. I'll supply the bacon and sausage if someone will promise to fry some potatoes. The last breakfast you had was amazing and going to be hard to beat but let's try anyway.

Sounds good to me, Frank! I'm sure we can come up with potatoes, eggs, fruit and whatever else. The bacon and sausage you cooked in LA was delish!!

Any volunteers? We may have some leftovers for the people who don't arrive until Friday evening! ;)

If I recall (and I'm old) there was enough left over for Saturday morning one one occasion. The food was great and it was also a good way to get everyone together.
Congrats again on the nice turnout you guys are having. You and Dave put on a great rally.
later and have a great day.

Thanks, Frank! Breakfast is a great way to start the day!

Nancy-we found out yesterday about an interesting Museum in Bullard that might be a good activity for the rally. It is the American Freedom Museum, website americanfreedommuseum.org. It is on the campus of a private school. We have brochures for it we can bring to the rally. They are open on Fridays. The displays cover military action from the civil war forward. Admission is free for veterans.

Ron is actually going to put on a bit of a demonstration by helping me install a kit on my 2014 BH. I'm arriving on Wednesday and we'll get started on it (weather permitting) asap. if you are interested in learning how they work, watching/helping with the install so you can do one yourself, etc., keep an eye out for where we pull this off. I'm going to check with KE Bushman's to see if they object or where they would prefer we do this and we'll put on the disc brakes on my BH right on site. This will not interfere with his plans to do any other support functions around the rally such as his seminar or any troubleshooting, etc. We just thought this is a great way to let others see this get done, know it is possible, how easy/difficult and answer everyone's questions. I've been wanting disc brakes on the last two coaches and now it's going to come true.

See you guys Wednesday around noon to get started.

I haven't had much response to the wine tour...we need at least 20 people to get a reduced rate. You are always welcome to go "on your own" to the tour, The tour info is here: http://kiepersol.com/tours
The cost is $10 per person.

Looking at the Web site they also have a Distillery that puts out Vodka, Bourbon and Rum. If we only have a small group we can make our own decision where to drink.[emoji12] [emoji43] [emoji13] [emoji15]

Nancy, looks like the Bakers are without a rig for the rally. The 'LG' was sold yesterday. I doubt if our new one will be in and ready by that time. My big concern is the breakfast meat I wanted to do for Friday AM. Is there anyone else with the cooker to handle the bacon? If so, I would love to reimburse the person who could step up. I could reimburse you at the La. rally. I'd like to do this for the group while I'm still working. May get a little more frugal after retirement.lol I want to spend sometime at the dealer during make ready to see what gets done. In case it doesn't come in this week, I'll go up to Jacksonville and come over early Friday and do the meat anyway. I'll just park next to the clubhouse and set up my cookers there. I'll keep you posted as to our schedule. Sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.

Hi Frank...so you really are getting a Bighorn???

What kind of cookers do you use? I'm sure we can find someone to cook! [emoji3]. I hate for you to come all this way to cook, although the meat you get is delicious!

Frank, when I came without a rig last year, I think they charged me just $5 a day for "a parking spot" to give me a code to get in the gate. There was plenty of space to park out of the way.

Nancy, I use the Coleman Road Trip with the full size grill. I also have the 3 burner Coleman with the full size grill. We have property about 20 miles from Bullard on Lake Jacksonville. If the make ready for my new BH is on Thursday and Friday, I want to be there. Try and make other arrangements in case we can't come. I'll try and get some definite times from the dealer early this week. If it doesn't arrive til the weekend, then we'll come up for the breakfast. I'll let you know as soon as I find out.
Yes, we're geting the BH 3270RS with all the bells and whistles. We opted for the small one so we would have room to move up later.lol (Hopefully, this is our last rig)

10-05-2015, 08:55 AM
I remember you coming Erika. Debbie and I will certainly be there for Friday morning if at all possible for the breakfast. We have a place to stay just a short distance away. But it all comes down to when they open up our new BH to tighten and inspect the enclosed electrical and water lines. I'd like to be there for that just to get a working knowledge of the inside components and how to access same. I'll know for sure by tomorrow. Working nights makes it even harder. If we come up for Friday, I'll just take off Friday and leave after I get off of work Early Friday morning and not waste vacation days. Since I pushed for the Friday morning breakfast, I feel obligated to try and be there. Again, I'll post back ASAP when I know for sure.

David, the website says no advance reservations needed for the tours on Saturday. The Distillery is at 1, 3 & 5 and the Winery is 2 & 4. Each is $10 per person.

I'm not sure about other vegetarians (we're in TX ;)), but I did order some turkey. I know it's still meat. :rolleyes:

Debbie and I really enjoyed the Breakfast and Saturday pot luck dinner. Sure wish we would have had our new rig so we could have hung out longer. I also want to apologize for showing up with a dead battery in my camera. I took a couple of pics at breakfast and shot one at the group picture before everybody was ready. Purpose was to see how much zoom I could use and still get the whole group. The battery died after that one picture. Sorry and I'll be more prepared if I do it again and yes, I do have another battery and it was dead also. Needless to say, nobody was ready.lol I'll post it anyway and maybe someone else can post a better pic.
Again, wiah we could have been there for the whole rally. Dave and Nancy put on a great show and look forward to their next event.

Was a great rally and as everyone has acknowledged, not without a lot of hard work by Nancy and Dave to organize and prepare. I didn't see us mention the great donation by Explore USA Canton for the dinner but just want to say a big thank you to them as well. Also, I am grateful for the help Ron Russell and Performance Brakes did in helping me get my brakes installed. We have driven about 350 miles since and they are working fine, stopping good, still breaking in I'm sure.

For those who knew about our trials and tribulations with the other stuff, it's just too weird that my coach could go out of warranty and about 1 week later start to experience several problems. We got the Level Up wiring under control finally and so far so good, it is working correctly. (Jim you need to see these pictures of this mess, Heartland should be ashamed of letting that mess get out of the plant).

We have also developed trouble with a gate valve, the level indicator lights suddenly don't read correctly and my remote won't work with the bedroom slide. All since the warranty expired. :(

We are thankful most of all for the fellowship and connections we made with new friends and hope to cross paths with you guys again on the trail.

thanks for everyone's kindness. Now on the search and read and learn again on this wonderful forum for answers to my problems that have developed (post warranty).

Also, thanks Dave for that tip on the tire step. Northern tool has the 300 lb capacity one on sale now for $24.99 if anyone needs a little boost to reach into the bed of your truck.

For those who knew about our trials and tribulations with the other stuff, it's just too weird that my coach could go out of warranty and about 1 week later start to experience several problems. We got the Level Up wiring under control finally and so far so good, it is working correctly. (Jim you need to see these pictures of this mess, Heartland should be ashamed of letting that mess get out of the plant).

We have also developed trouble with a gate valve, the level indicator lights suddenly don't read correctly and my remote won't work with the bedroom slide. All since the warranty expired. :(

Tim & Beckey - sorry to hear about all your post-warranty problems! We bought our rig used, just out of warranty, so we also purchased a third party warranty plan from WholesaleWarranties.com. It was about $2,200 for four years of coverage. It's the broadest coverage you can buy; the policy is "exclusionary" so everything is covered unless it's specifically excluded, and it even covers damage to a covered part caused by failure of a non-covered part. Well, about 3 months after we got the rig, one of our Dometic air conditioners developed a coolant leak, and the entire unit had to be replaced, to the tune of almost $1,500. We just paid a $100 deductible, and the warranty paid for the rest - so it's almost paid for itself already. I had gulped hard when I wrote that big check for the warranty, but now I'm so glad I did...it's almost paid for itself already, and we have 44 more months of coverage, so I'm sure something else will break before then!

They won't cover pre-existing problems, of course, but you can still get a warranty for anything that comes up in the future.

Thanks for sharing this. I had no idea something like this existed. I've been carrying a stepladder around to get in and out of the bed of our F-450 when it's hitched. Here's a link to the product: http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200631961_200631961. I'll be ordering one today!

This is a rally thread, not about insurance or problems.
