    My tire decision...

    Is Heartland Moving Away From Towmax??

    We ran the Sailun S637 on our last 5th Wheel for 30k trouble free miles. They are a heavyweight, well constructed tire. Ours ran well in all conditions and wore very well. I would not hesitate to buy the Sailun tire again.

    Crack in fiberglass wall

    These type of issues scare the heck out of me. I know stuff happens to any product made by humans, but since we fulltime having a major warranty repair that takes weeks or even months that prevents us from using / living in our "home on wheels" would not work for us !!!

    Bighorn Hydraulic Slides and front legs

    Could also be combination of colder weather and a weak battery, the hydraulic fluid gets thicker when it is cold thus puts more load on the pump which draws more current on the 12 Volt system.

    When I saw the dark wood at the Super Show in Tampa last year, I left the Heartland display and kept moving. The lighter wood option will put Heartland back on our list for our next 5th Wheel, not a fan for Darker and Darker colors.
