    What is being done about Towmax Tires

    I joined the Blow Max tire club Thursday! Ironically I had told the wife I was going to replace them this winter, to be safe. Sudden explosion on I-95 about two hours into the trip. Thank goodness we were not too far from Wilson, NC and able to get some help to get back rolling. Had less...

    Wilson, NC Excellent Tire Service. White's Tire

    After a sudden, world famous Blowmax adventure on I-95 near Wilson, NC I was forced to find a roadside tire service. After calling my Nationwide roadside rep and discovering it would be a 4 hour wait, I called a couple more places. White's Tire Service said they could be there is 20 minutes...

    Can't rotate tires because.....

    You didn't indicate if you have a dually or not. My single rear wheel F350 had two different pressures for front and rear, but that's not an issue. Just takes a couple of minutes to get the correct pressure after rotating.

    Directv - King Quest Users?

    I am interested in getting a King Quest satellite for my RV. We are only going to use it a few days a month. Is anyone simply taking one of their receivers with them from home? I'm not interested in changing to Dish and hope to not have to pay for separate programming. IS there a distinct...

    Smoke from LED lighting

    The LED shouldn't put off enough heat to cause that problem. That doesn't mean that the electrical source leading to the strip may not be the culprit. Hopefully you can isolate the issue and have it corrected for your safety.

    We have Nationwide and are very happy with them.

    CY3010 - Garage Table, you sit in the dark

    We had a Raptor previously and noticed a similar issue. I attached two sections of rope lights with a few zip ties along the sides and rear. There was an outlet conveniently located which helped. The lights went up and down with the top bed and stayed put without any problem. We eventually...

    Family Safe Thanks To Good Samaritans

    Not sure about all RV's but my last three only came with a B C rated extinguisher. That is only for flammable liquids (class B) and is safe for use on electricity (class C). These will not be effective for other materials, including tires. Everyone should invest in a decent size A B C type...

    Family Safe Thanks To Good Samaritans

    These folks are true heroes. While the family lost their RV, their lives were spared. This story is from Firehouse Magazine online. Fire destroys a motor home as it heads through Central Florida. Several motorists jumped into action to help the occupants...

    New to the site and Heartland

    Have a Sundance 3310MKS fifth wheel. There have been a very few, small issues that our dealer has taken care of completely. The Sundance is certainly not the top Heartland product, but I'm very happy after the first year of ownership.

    SuperGlide Rocker Arm Spring Issue

    Loading the truck and noticed my Pullrite SuperGlide hitch is leaning to one side. I pulled off the fifth wheel plate and moved the rocker arm side to side. The range of motion is equal, but there isn't any resistance on one side. Looking at the parts break down I think I have a broken rocker...

    Tire Size Question

    I have a Sundance 3310MKS that came with the infamous Tow Max 235/80/16. After almost 2,000 miles the tires seem to be performing well. I keep an eye on tire pressure and don't pull at speeds above 65. However I am considering upgrading tires due to the many complaints about the Tow Max...

    How cold is it?

    Here on the Outer Banks, in Kill Devil Hills it's 40 and a mild (that's sarcasm) North East wind of about 25 mph, making for a nice wind chill of about 35 degrees.

    Air bags

    I installed the Firestone bags and an on-board compressor on my F250 and it easily took care of my leveling issues. Traded up to a F350 and didn't need the bags. Do look into getting a set of airbags, regardless of brand.

    Cabinet hinges

    Not a Bighorn owner, but I have a similar issue on our new Sundance. Dropped it off at the dealer to have it fixed since it's only 3 months old.

    Oil leak on bedroom AC

    Spoke to my dealer's service manager and he said that its most likely road grime , dust, etc in the cover that has gotten wet from condensation. Told me if it was compressor oil it wouldn't be cooling. It does cool well, so I guess he is right. He suggested a good roof washing a few times a...

    How do you use your Toy Hauler?

    We actually sold our Raptor TH and bought a Sundance because we weren't using the TH feature. Had hopes of taking the ATV when we went camping but that didn't pan out. We had two queen beds in the rear. Took the top one out (no kids) and the bottom one was also a U-shaped dinette. That...
