    2 Bighorns and a Landmark at Elkhart Campground

    Gene and Joseph, happy to see you made it back from MorRyde (a few dollars lighter but a lot more peace of mind) safely. We had mobile service yesterday from Tom Bumpus of Elkhart Sales and Service, Inc. He does quality work at a per hour rate much better than some service centers. We had Tom...

    Leak under frig but not the ice maker! Maybe.

    Pinhole in water line accessed through bottom access door outside. Just happened to us for second time about a week and a half ago. Every time we get water in the drawer under the fridge, we start looking at the water line. J.D. cut out the hole section, joined line back together with a...

    ATF: Landmark -

    We have dual pane windows. There is no draft that moves a tissue or the curtain. We also have a insulatec foil piece covering the window and shade is always down. Of course, northerly winds make the situation seem worse. Thanks for all the responses. This has been a concern because the pillows...

    ATF: Landmark -

    We have excessive cold air entering the slide windows at the head of the bed. The air is radiating strongly from the bottom of the window. We have to stuff blankets under the window to diminish some of the air radiation. Question: Why are the three bedroom windows not surrounded with wood trim...

    Another Blowout story

    Sorry to hear you have had another blowout, Jim. Glad you and Sheila are safe. Be sure to call Goodyear, get a claim number and arrange to have the tire sent to them. Looks very similiar to our blowout situation. Our GYs were the same age as yours. Really makes us wonder now, what was the...

    People that upgrade almost new rigs

    We traded after two years because we became full-timers and needed more kitchen area than our original BH3400RL had. That particular Bighorn had issues which I won't get into - that's in the past. Now that I see changes being made in the newer models, I want to change again but no way...

    PTL, parts have arrived. We are scheduled into ExploreUSA on Monday, Nov 22. Goodyear came thru paying repair costs and full set of tires. Goodyear has not been forthcoming as to why they think blowouts occurred. We are just thrilled to have these unexpected expenses paid in full. Will post...

    Kudos for Tyron Wheel Bands

    Jim, due to there being two consecutive blowouts, ExploreUSA said the damage could have extended farther up the side of the slide, included hydraulics and more of the underbelly and possibly slide flooring, brake lines, etc. The second blowout did finish taking out the large fender piece and...

    Kudos for Tyron Wheel Bands

    Quoting from 'Tyron is attached over the wheel’s "drop center" after the tire has been fitted. After a puncture of blowout, Tyron supports the deflated tire and prevents it from falling into the wheel well. This action greatly increases tire stability, and therefore steering...

    Are you ready John? How about $1695? Seems a bit more pricey than the UK where these are popular but I think they have been worth it.

    Kudos for Tyron Wheel Bands

    On 10-20-2010, we were traveling I-37N to San Antonio from Aransas Pass, TX. We incurred two Goodyear tire blowouts (consecutively). TPMS did not even kick in the blowouts happened so quickly. Once the loud pop occurred, the smoke was rolling and J.D. got the Landmark pulled quickly to the...

    King Pin Upgrades

    You need to check out east bound I-30 coming into Benton, AR and pretty much all of I-30 south of Benton, AR. Another route on our list is I-10 from AZ to Kerrville, TX. The trip from Terre Haute to Elkhart was a real bone jarrer. Any more, just about any route we take we think the same...

    What a Place for a closet light!

    You should be able to remove the bulb cover, then the screws holding the fixture in place and flip it. Just check the screw holes to make sure everything lines up. Our closet light is placed correctly but notice that one of the two bedroom lights has the switch backward. Since those lights...
