    2017 Heartland Road Warrior Roof Problem

    Sorry to hear about your roof problems. I have fretted over our roof more than anything! What do you mean, bubbling? Size of pea, quarter, bigger? Do you have any pictures?

It's a county park with water and electric and a dump station but nice big sites in a lovely setting. We'll...

    Considering new Tow Vehicle 2016 Chevrolet 3500 Dually - need advice on truck and B&W hitch

    Re: Considering new Tow Vehicle 2016 Chevrolet 3500 Dually - need advice on truck and B&W hitch We took the hitch out (the bed looks so weird without it!) and we can go down one bolt hole. Which based on the truck height won't be enough but maybe the pin box adjustment will be sufficient...

    Considering new Tow Vehicle 2016 Chevrolet 3500 Dually - need advice on truck and B&W hitch

    We are wanting to trade in our 2007 GMC 3500 - sad to see our LBZ go, but it has 130,000 miles (nothing to the engine, I know). We are looking at a 2016 Chevrolet 3500. It only has 9000 miles on it, so still under factory warranty and it has some of the features we wanted. It is not currently...

    Need Suggestions

    We spent several days in Memphis, really enjoyed it. We stayed at Graceland RV Park (at the end of Lonely Street) which was no great shakes but level, quiet, just down from Graceland. For a few bucks (maybe $5pp each way?), they had a shuttle bus that took you down to Beale Street. No worries...

    New Pseudo rear cap for Big Country

    So, DOES it provide better protection from leaks (assuming both are caulked properly)? If it's merely looks, then it comes down to cost. And everyone chooses based on their financial situation and taste. So that could go either way. However, if it comes down to safety, (like upgrading our...

    Fantastic fan opens but doesn't turn on

    I was asking about condensation in another thread, and after the responses decided to run our fantastic fan to get a little airflow to bring the humidity down in the coach. Haven't used it in a while, but worked fine last time. However now in trying to run it, it clicks on at thermostat, then...

    Cold weather

    Love the blue sky. Something I always loved about Colorado. Could snow, but blue skies were always coming out. It's been raining lightly but steadily for a couple hours. But it's still 55 degrees at 83 0 p.m. so I can't complain I have a question about your picture though. your hitch is...

    Tripped breaker

    HI Bill, Thanks for that explanation. Hope you didn't take that as a criticism, it definitely was not but rather a sincere question from ignorance. I was joking on another Thread about being like Michael Keaton's character in Mr. Mom where he's talking about electricity and says 220, 221...

    Cold weather

    John! 4! I saw it was going to be -2 in Lakewood so double checked all was OK with our tenants there. We are just south of the Bay area (California), it started raining now, but 49. High of 60 today. We're heading south on Saturday, but it's been cold (relatively) in Vegas too.

    bed moisture condensation

    Just curious, how did you discover this? I checked and we don't have it, but I'd we did, I'd have never thought to check there except perhaps when getting into under bed storage.

    Tripped breaker

    To be sure I'm understanding you, you leave the fireplace on all night? And the space heater? We were a little worried about leaving them on when we're not nearby (awake) to monitor them. So before bed, we turn on the furnace. We like it a little cooler so we set the furnace at 59, of course...

    Condensation on windows - single pane windows

    I'm going to ask a probably stupid question (why stop now????). According to our weather station, the humidity inside is 48% and the humidity outside last night was 78%. So how is venting outside air that is more humid going to make it lower humidity in here? Just airflow?

    Tripped breaker

    Hi Jim, can you elaborate on what/how you mean about getting it on the other leg of AC power in the coach? (Sorry, real novice at power) Is that as simple as a different outlet in another area? At the time of the tripped breaker, we were using living room TV, Fireplace and heat plugged into...

    Question - we are in a 30 amp hookup in chilly, but not freezing weather. We have a small heater we got at costco - says 12.5 amps on the box. It has been quite comfortable and a bit warmer than our fireplace as temperatures drop. (Haven't gotten to freezing temps, know that heater won't...
