    Load duel vs. single

    When looking at a tire load chart there is understandably a difference in the load for duel and single tires. I know that on a motorhome the rear wheels would be duel and you would use the duel chart. However, on a 5th wheel the tires are not side by side but still fairly close. Would you use...

    Jacks popping AFTER adding anti-stiction fluid

    Well, I have tried everything. Added 2 quarts of Cat, use Snap Pads, have changed oil. Still popping from all 6 jacks. I have concluded it is from our AZ temperature change. The more change the louder the popping.:confused:

    Bed Clearance

    We just purchased a new truck and hitch. When hooked up, our Bighorn is level. However we only have about 4 5/8 clearance with the side of the truck. What is your opinion? I hate to raise the hitch and have the 5th wheel out of level.

    fresh water drain

    We have a 2017 Bighorn 3160. The water tank drain had been working. Now when I open the drain nothing comes out. I ran a wire up it and the wire hits something solid. Any ideas? I know I can use my pump. Repair guy says would have to take bottom covering of 5th wheel off and possibly...

    Holding Tank Valves are hard to pull. Ideas?

    Re: Universal Docking System Holding Tank Valves On both my 2010 Bighorn and now my 2017 Bighorn I had to have the cable on my black tank changed from 10 foot to 6 foot in length. Now works with one finger. My repair guy wonders why Heartland doesn't learn. He has changed too many to count.

    length of black tank valve cable

    Just had the black tank cable replaced on my 2017 Bighorn. Old cable was 10 feet long with a big loop. New cable is 6 feet. Works like a charm. The thing is I had the same problem on my 2010 Bighorn. You would think the factory would learn by now plus what they would save in cost. Thor is...
