I lived thru the loss of my HiLo family, then my Jayco and Heartland family, and now even my Tiffin family.
Corp. downsizing (just nickles and dimes to them) has killed us brand enthusiasts.
Thank you JB, and all former SE USA Leaders and members.
I know that I can not afford to join the...
Two year old thread so no help for him, but recent poster asked here so will respond ...
Just throwing in my two cents worth: early last month we had separate Splendide units installed. I chose the Splendide brand based on RV forum users - not the online sales reviews.

Re: interior light switch?
As some posters have mentioned mood lights I would next look for an overhead hidden connection point for them. Perhaps they failed and the prior owner disconnected/ removed them.
I believe I made my first intro in this section also; I felt that if firearms were tolerated I would find a home.
I'm not familiar with the P10 but own (and appreciate) a 24 year old CZ75 and a more modern P09 (plus a bolt .22LR / .22Magnum rifle). Great brand of firearms.
I recently sold my...
I'm torn with this ... we attended the two prior jamborees (Cullman/ 2018 & Foley/ 2019) and enjoyed ourselves.
Then last July we went and traded (now in another brand) - and have since sat at home because of the virus.
We'll talk it over and maybe invite ourselves over (a $20 penalty is...
Getting rid of the food source is easier than getting rid of the critters.
Unless they develop an appetite for your vehicles wiring - this past July I had $400 in damages for their eating my F350 air conditioners harness.
My former dealer (for my former Bighorn / https://www.bamarv.com/) likely has one.
Long after purchase I noticed that half of my vents were "blowers" while the other half were "returns". The returns had a separate twist-locking ring inside that held a filter in place, and I was missing ONE...
In about 3 hours we'll be turning both it (Bighorn 3750FL) and the tow buggy over to a dealer - and driving off in a 40 foot 2010 Tiffin Phaeton. While its been good to us we want something easier to pilot in those tight spots.
Just off the top of my head I believe that a topper wouldn't make any noticeable difference in observed MPG; and it'd add cargo weight - which may present its own problems.
Lastly, assuming it did add MPG - how many miles would you need to drive to offset its cost?
Get one if you need / want...
Yesterday we pulled into a small campground (Ft Rucker, AL) for a 10 day stay.
The first pad contained a Big Country, the second and third pads held Landmarks.
Any of y'all reading these pages? We'll be here thru the 28th, give us a howdy over on pad 19.
On my fridge I must remove two items before the ice makers on/off switch is visible.
First Remove the ice bin, then remove the panel that the ice bin attaches to (no tools required, just jiggle them out).
If necessary toggle the on/off switch on AND ensure the bail is in the lower position...
There is a reason why campers offer 1 - 2 - or even 3 AC units. Depending on your expectations sometimes that's what it takes.
Trial and error will lead you to the best combination of your system. If unhappy you can add an additional unit - or upgrade to another unit.
When parked in my driveway: mine too has the front jacks fully extended (with much additional chocking), the middle jacks don't touch / using a single Anderson bucket, while the rear jacks are on the ground with very little extension; now to answer your question - Yes! - my two front jacks...

First due to cold wx (in the 60's or less) - followed by the quarantine - our fifth has been resting since last Oct.

Well then ... another opinion is called for.
My last bumper pull was an 04 HiLo, they've been out of business 10 years.
I believe the dealer is more important than the name on it; find one you trust and listen to his advice.
Sorry I can't be more helpful.
This is MY (Heartland brand) bias: the Landmarks are the top dog - followed by the Bighorns and then the Big Country.
EDIT IN: then above them there are the specialty manufacturers (one example are the DRVs).
But what really counts is what you perceive, not my opinion.
First I'd ask - is it under warranty? If so get it in and looked after.
If not then I'd climb on top, open it up, and check for cleanliness (and don't forget the interior filters).
Beyond that I'd take it to someone who knows better than I do.
Something to keep in mind is if you have a problem dealing with online warranties is likely more difficult than a local dealer.
About 3 years ago I purchased 4 auto tires from The TireRack. I saved about $150 with that purchase (vs local out the door prices) but I then paid about $80 to have...
Years ago I had a Mossburg 835? and some 3.5 shells. I shot several of them - donated the remainder to the new owner of that shotgun.
Now I flinch on the 3" shells in my Benelli's (M2); if I was to purchase today it'd be a 20 ga.
Home defense only.
We recently had the two boys for a week. Both thoroughly loved the .22LR; the older one shot three 410 rounds (with a limbsaver installed) and that was enough. I'm sure as time goes on his ego will lead him to try it again.
The youngest took great pride when I nicknamed him Deadeye, he even...
Buying a Fuel 362 and needing to buy a hitch Implies that you've not yet purchased this.
That's good news because you have too little truck (as previously mentioned) to safely pull this load.
These two items will not play together well so the obvious answer is get a MUCH lighter toy or a...
Re: It’s been a great ride!
I know from personal experience how corporations cut their expenses and run; in 2007 my job went overseas - to the Honduras. Fortunately I was in a good place and was able to survive it.
So while I've never met you (just as I've never met most of the folks who...
