    Adding heating pads to tanks/water lines

    I was in Moses Lake, WA in 08 with high temps below 15 deg. for 2 weeks. Our kitchen water froze because water lines were ran down frame, not so anymore. Plus the only heated part of underbelly is in the upper level, the kitchen area gets no heat. Unless you route heat down there which I did...

    Air bags vs mono-shock

    Bruce, I had the trail-air center-point system (air bags) installed on our 2009 3670RL and it took out that bouncy ride. When we cross bridges it does not bounce for the next 1/4 mile like it use too. I think it is well worth the money we spent, also think it helps with the beating our units...

    Dometic rm1350 - need help!

    Kenny, I tried that as well. Put a piece of sheet metal to help with the air flow as well as putting a 7 in. fan to move air. It helped a little but still did not solve the warming issue. When we were in Moses Lake, WA in winter it worked great. As soon as it started to get warm it would not...

    Dometic rm1350 - need help!

    Yes I closed up the vents, but they can still be removed for access. The fridge is not sealed in like the RM 1350. There is air space all around the fridge for air movement. The top vent is not very effective because it is not at the top of the cabinet resulting in hot air being trapped above...

    Dometic rm1350 - need help!

    Jim, I have considered a small inverter system, but so far I have not had a problem with fridge getting warm while we are on the road. As of now we always stay in parks while we travel, but that still remains to be a good option. Lonnie

    Dometic rm1350 - need help!

    I only paid $350 for the fridge so if it does go out it is way less than the rv unit. It actually weighs less than the RM 1350 so weight is not an issue, I took off the doors and was able to lift it up and place it in the hole. Getting the old unit out was another story. We never dry camp so...

    Extra Insulation

    Dave, I put insulation under my 3670RL when we where in Moses Lake, WA. it was below15 degree for 2 weeks. It did help, I still had my kitchen water lines freeze. I tapped into my back heater line to solvethe problem. You should also look into skirting and if any of your tanks are against the...

    RM1350--The SAGA continues

    sdagro, I went through 2 RM1350's in 6 months in our 3670RL, tried the redneck fan, ran it on propane, put insulation on top and it all did not work. I think it is a install problem, they are not vented right. The people I have talked to with the ones that are not installed in slides have not...

    new carpet clearance

    sorry, for the cofusion. Heavier meaning more dense and plush. The pad would remain the same. The problem is that the more dense and plush carpet is thicker or taller than the carpet that is installed in our BH. Thats why I need to know what clearance or how thick of carpet I can install. Thanks...

    Lippert springs strike again

    I asked a warranty rep at Lippert about the shocks and his reply was; Thats the way they are mounted in the rv industry. We agreed to disagree on that subject as well as others. I am having the upper shock mounts moved and new shocks installed by Hendersons Lineup on our way back to CA in Aug...

    King pin bottom sagging

    I got lucky and was in CA when I found it, so it did not get that wet and it dried out fast. Warning to everyone check that caulking! I think it got most of its water when I had it washed, when they used a pressure washer.

    King pin bottom sagging

    Was it wet in there? I noticed my sagging and had water inside. I took trim off the sides and dried it out and put back together. I had leaks around front cap from poor caulking job from factory so I recaulked the front and rear cap no problems since.

    Cracked Frame

    Is there a support welded on the inside of the frame? It makes no sense that it would crack like that unless it was welded in that area. I understand the crack on the plate welded to the frame, it is most likely cracked in the heat affected zone. Have you had it fixed yet? You can't just weld...
