    Weird Potty Problem

    Hi all, We keep our 2018 BH3160EL 5er in a shop/barn connected to power. I have noticed that the toilet bowl keeps filling with water even though the pump is off and there is very little water in the fresh tank. I understand that the water inlet flow valve may not be closing all the way, but...

    Living Room/Dining Room Light Fixture

    I know that there have been posts on this subject before. While In AZ this year, this fixture started coming down. There was a very loud crack when this happened. I am now working on this issue and it appears that The 3" screws on one end barely hit the stud. I am waiting for my Walabot to...

    2018 BH3160EL slide lighting issue

    On the drivers side slide, the mood light and the light over the stove went dim and now don't work at all. Don't see any blown fuses and the radio still works. Don't appear to have 12v to the light switches. I thought the wiring would go down, but it goes up from the switches. Is this part of...

    Tailgater and Wally Issues

    I was having issue getting the satellite signal with my Tailgater and the Wally. I was told that the Cable length might cause a drop in the power to the tailgater. Because I don't know how much cable was used to get from the input on the trailer up to the TV area, I ran my own to make sure I had...

    Good Customer Service Story

    Thought I'd share a good customer service story for a change. Called Heartland warranty department because our Jensen radio would not play any DVDs. Everything came up "Disc Error". I told the gentleman that due to past dealer issues, I would rather not go to a dealer for this. He said "no...

    I give a big hug for the HUG addition. It helped me figure out the MCD window treatments. Was able to take it down, reattach the mounting clip, and reinstall. Thanks to all.

    Is this normal?

    While examining the underside of our 3160EL I noticed these two slide rods, one on the kitchen slide and one on the living room slide. Is there a reason for the placement of the lock nut on the end. Thanks in advance.
