    Finding RV Friendly Communities?

    I haven't seen discussion of this - maybe I'm in the wrong place. We want to buy property to park our RV and build a small cabin... We have other requirements (major bike trail, mature trees) but there is no sense looking where you are not allowed to live in an RV or at least park it for...

We have owned our Sundance about 4 years and have had 4 FOUR! blowouts. 2 went at once (right rear took right fwd with it), then this trip blew right rear and then 200 miles later left rear... so both side panels are now out and we are fed up with blowouts.

    Help - Underbelly leak

    Re: Help - Underbelly leak - need schematic Thank you very much for the reply. We didn't see any screws holding the cross members on - on the sundance 2800 the supports run crosswise and it must be the front one which we couldn't really see. We just looked at the back one which is visible and...

    Replace fresh water tank?

    Has anyone replaced a water tank on a sundance? Ours sits on L-braces that are welded in place, so it would probably have to come out from above. How difficult is this? Thanks for information.

    Help - Underbelly leak

    Re: Help - Underbelly leak - need schematic maybe I wasn't clear - the way the tank is installed it can NOT be removed from the bottom and a new one cannot be installed that way - we would have to rip the entire floor apart... it's just plain bad design...

    Re: Help - Underbelly leak - need schematic The issue of course is not the price of the tank but tearing the entire trailer apart as I explained it would have to be replaced form above. This is not a viable option so that's why I requested permission to post in another thread rather than...

    Help - Underbelly leak

    OK, it appears the edge of the bottom panel is glued. I think we want to loosen it all around, drop it and then cut the panel in sections (being careful as you warn about hitting other things) (not today - another day). If we pull it down, do we need to reglue it? Is there anything that will...

    Inverter Groundwire Connection

    Thanks in advance for the help. We were planning on taking the 110v output from the inverter and connecting it to only 2 new seperate outlets (distinct from the 110 outlets provided with the RV). These would be used to power our computers and the microwave when not connected to electricity at...

    Motor appears loose on front jacks? Sundance

    Hi, we have a Sundance 2800RLS. Just getting ready for a long road trip. There appears to be a lot of play in the motor that extends/retracts the front jacks. When you first start, the bottom of the motor mount moves/twists out about 1/4 inch and then again when you stop. This seems new...
