    2020 Rally Schedule for North Carolina Chapter

    2018 Ram Recall

    Just received a recall labeled V06. Pertains to our steering linkage. This is a serious recall due to the fact the nut will come off and you'll be at the mercy of which way the wheels go. I scheduled an appointment Monday before we leave on our trip to have the problem fixed. Their solution...

    Sikafflex 521 UV or Proflex RV Caulk

    Wanting to go over my outside seams on the side of our rig. Looks like HL used an almond colored caulk on my BH. Clear and bright white only in Sikaflex. The Proflex comes in almond. Is one as good as the other? Does anyone know for sure what HL uses? Thanks in advance.

    Heavier Struts for Bed

    We upgraded our matress to a 13" foam model and now the struts won't hold the bed up plus it's heavier to lift. Has anyone changed the struts to stronger ones? The matress only weighs about 50lbs. Thanks in advance for any input on this subject.

    MORryde Sliding Tray Install

    My 29 X 90 sliding tray will be here Monday. I received the extender kit today which consists of 6 adjustable lifts for the tray. With no instructions included and not seeing the tray itself, I'm wondering how they mount to the slide. Looks like you have to disassemble the extender and bolt...

    Wet Bolt and Equalizer Install

    I won a set of wet bolts and ordered the longer ones for my correct tract set up. I'm hoping the broken bolts I've been reading about are due to over torqueing and not just quality. I figured I would replace the equalizer at this time, going with the SRE 3000 instead of the 4K after reading...

    Water Pressure

    Would you gain anything by going to 5/8" I D hoses in your water connections leading to trailer? I currently have 5/8 hose to filters and then 1/2" to UDC. If I change to all 1/2", would I lose pressure? Thanks in advance

    Water Softener Install

    Thinking to install sediment filter, water softener and then the charcoal filter with the regulator leading to RV. Does this sound right? Or, should I run water supply to softener and then to 2 filters before RV hookup? Thanks in advance.

    BH Front Decal Replacement

    Has anyone attempted to replace their big front decal? I left some love bugs stuck for too long and they ate threw the decal. If I made marks from existing decal before removal for reference and used plenty of soapy water, I would think I could do it. Any thoughts. I'm assuming it's just a...

    Big Horn Spare Tire Carrier

    While pulling my rig out to wash and get ready for our trip, I noticed the spare tire was mounted close to the handles on the carrier. Leaving all of that room on the other side, I figured I could mount my grey tank tote and have it hidden and out of the way. What a great idea. Wrong. After...

    Recharging Battery

    How can you test to see if your RV battery is charging when plugged to your TV? Also, when you're hooked to shore power. The reset button on the side of the 20A breaker near your battery cutoff has a little black rubber boot. Should the button inside protrude to be very noticeable of just...

    Using 5th Wheel to Tow

    Thinking about adding a hitch to my BH to tow my golf cart. If a hitch is mounted correctly, will it hurt the frame in any way. If I do this mod, I probably should upgrade the brakes to disc. Any recommendations on hitch type for this application? Not sure if it voids warranty but I am...

    Winterizing Question

    We have our BH under cover presently and we drained everything including the water heater. I'm worried I didn't blow out the pipes or add antifreeze to unit with the temps getting in mid 20's for about 10 hours. Should freeze again tonight. At this point, I don't know what to do except hope...

    Crack Found on Slide

    Getting ready for our 3 month trip and while applying 303 I noticed a small hairline crack in the skin on the slide. About 4'up and 5" over from the entrance door slide. Don't think this will hurt our trip. The crack looks to be about 3" long. How would one go about fixing this without...

    Barker 4 Wheel Holding Tank

    DW is adamant about us having one of these. Ordered a 32 gal model for the road. Does anyone use these? I do see some places we might stay that don't have sewer hookups and seem like it could come in handy with the towing handle and pneumatic tires.

    Auxiliary Gate Valve for Dump

    Only had my BH out once to a HL rally. Everybody had the gate valves on their rigs. While talking with Mike F. about them, he said they are a must and advised I would get little surprise the 1st time I opened the cap to hook up. Needless to say I ordered one and had it for months waiting to...

    Rear Stabbilizer Jacks on Bighorn

    Ordered my new rig with auto level up and there aren't any rear stabilizers like I've seen on others. I ordered 2 scissor jacks for the rear. Noticed 2 4" channels protruding in the rear. Were they there for the electric stabilizers? I'm looking to attach these 2 jacks in that location...

    Storage Bay Behind Fireplace

    On our new BH there is a small storage area with slam door that's carpeted behind the fire place. Looks like the perfect place for a good tool room. Just seems natural for a maintenance bin. What's everyone else doing with this area? I can just see plastic storage boxes with assorted screws...

    Progressive Surge Protector for BH 3270RS

    About to order a 50A SP from progressive. Is there a benefit, other than theft, for having the HW unit installed? Or, will you get the same protection with the portable one? Like to decide before I pick up rig. If I hard wire it, I'd like to do it at inspection when it's opened up. Trying...
