    Tow vehicle options

    Look at the CCC of the truck you want to buy. I looked at a SRW Lariat 2020 F350 Crew 8 ft box. The CCC was 4600 lbs. That is enough to tow your 18,000 lb coach. A decision you make on what you need is yours. FTR I tow with a SRW 2016 F350 Lariat Crew Shortbox with snowplow prep and Camper...

    Landmark Louisville Modifications

    More mouse proofing. We are at our northern fall trip on the Canadian Shield Last year we had mice, found 2 live and 2 in traps. 1/4 inch galvanized mesh. This blocks a lot of the hole for the hydraulic ram. Can bend if needed. We use Mouse Free spray as well which has worked for 3 winters in...

    Excessive problems

    A couple things. Sounds like a used Purchase from a dealer. If so the repairs should be part of a purchase. I have a 2018 Landmark Louisville made in September 2017. We purchased new off the dealer lot in March 2019. In Fall 2020 all caulking was pulled out and replaced on roof edge. Cable and...

    Slide stuck out

    I have a slide in slide on my Heartland. FTR the Schwintek does work fine in my experience. I would suggest you get the slde all the way out. It looks like the top has come in contact with the frame. I had this happen on my 2012 Rockwood with a super slide and Schwintek. I had to get the slide...

    New to our Heartland and we need new batteries

    What ever is on sale at Auto Zone or UAP. Highest deep discharge amps, ranking amps mean nothing for RV use.

    Is it normal for the shower to drain to a black tank?

    My Landmark had the shower plumbed to the Black Tank. I replumbed this while camping to have the shower into the front grey tank with the lab sink. Back grey is kitchen only. This make a lot for sense for boon docking being able to use both grey tanks together for shower and dishes and th black...

    PLEASE help.. black water tank smell.. long story..

    To keep the seal of the toilet working when leaving pour about 3 inches of cheap cooking oil. It will not evaporate and with lubricate the seal. Also makes the dump valves slick as a goose eating fresh greens! I do this once a year to lube my dump valves. I pour a gallon down gray tanks, catch...

    AWM990 turns on & off repeatedly

    This problem is related to low voltage on the Jensen head unit. I had one in my 2017 Bighorn. I double the DC supply wiring to provide less voltage drop and that stopped the problem in my case. Brian

    Jensen JWM9A Power Cycling

    The power lead and ground go back to the power distribution. I had the problem in my Bighorn. There just happened to be a spare circuit. Doubled up the wire and it worked fine. I have the same voltage drop issue with my tilting bed in my landmark. I am going to run some # 10 AWG to main...

    Plywood coating under the slides

    We still get occasional construction debris on our 3 season old coach. As far as water ingress I applied lots sealant when installing, silicone in my case from discount store. Works great in this application.Let it squeeze out and wipe off with vinegar soaked cloth.

The BFG stick to the road in rain and are great in Mud at the campground and we get snow, they do well here as well. I was stuck on a site with Michelins...

    Plywood coating under the slides

    The 18 Gauge in my case I just slide in. Depending on slide type you need to be careful how far is the fixed edge doesn't get in the way.
