    What did you buy the first night?

    Our first purchase was a second battery. it was at 2:00am and 12 *F outside and the furnace stopped. Luckily we were staying in a Walmart parking lot. found out later that the T.V. was not charging the 12 volt system due to a missing fuse.

    My 2012 Ford F450 Classy Chassis truck build

    Re: My 2012 Ford F450 Classy Chassis truck build - Vinyl Graphics I like to color and the graphics. Additionally if you can get graphics for "cheap" just use Vinyl Off and change out the graphics with each trailer. It took me less than 30 minutes to strip full side graphics off of the 450 with...

    WA Rally Debrief and Photos

    Wish we could have been there, it looks like a good time was had by all, but we are trailerless, truckless, and a few thousand miles away. I might try to make it to Gillette next for the National rally for a cameo appearance one day.

    It was a great ride...

    Well we are finally RVless. Had the Landmark sell to another young couple in Utah back in June, and Just sold the F-450 to a family in Wheatland, WY to haul a horse trailer for the rodeo. I start classes at the University on Monday, So I will go from driving a 10,000# Ford truck to riding a 26"...

    No longer full-time, We got our house!

    Well, the trailer is now empty and is stored. It was very odd seeing it so empty and "plain" again. The view out the front window is a bit nicer with out the Landmark block the view.

    No longer full-time, We got our house!

    Well it has been almost 2.5 years since we hit the road in our Landmark, but that road trip is now over. Yesterday at 4:00pm we got the key to our house here in Laramie. We spent the last few hours of daylight moving a trailer load of stuff my parents brought up from Colorado and then hauled the...

    leaking flush water line

    We can get to our anti-siphon valve by removing the access port in the shower. The problem is probably a broken valve due to the anti-siphon valve freezing because the black tank flush was not winterized, we had that problem the first year we had our trailer.

    roof vents

    I had to disassemble our vent and lubricate the slide and crank. I would recommend removing the screen and then the crank mechanism to see if it will crack easily off of the vent. if it works you'll need to grease/lube the slide on the vent. if it does not work you might have to replace the...

    AC while traveling

    When we where in TX 2 summers ago (daytime temps where 105*+). I would put over about 2 hours before our stop for the day and start the generator and turn on both A/C units. it really help make it comfortable inside while setting up.

    Your feedback is request on offering storage in place of an oven in Landmark

    Now granted we do ~90% of all the baking in the convection oven, there are just some things that do not cook well in it. The Convection unit will dry out my super moist brownies, and there is no way I can fit a rib roast or a turkey in the convection unit. Also when we have guests over it is...

    large motel parking lots

    Put big brother to work and use Google maps to view the parking lots at several hotels. I use to do that to find a go place to park my truck and car hauler on off-road trips when I know there would be no trail head parking.

    "Backin up" Signals........PLEASE HELP MY BLOOD PRESSURE!!!!!

    The way I have always visualized backing any trailer is, the trailer will go the same way as the back side of the steer tires. in more words if the wheels are turned to the right (as in making a forward moving right turn) the back of the wheels are pointed to the left, and that means that the...

    Is an F-450 a good idea?

    Re: F450 Insurance Tom, The fuel mileage is okay, I rarely drive the truck without the trailer and our Augusta weight in at about 16,500# and we average just over 9 mpg. The newer truck are getting better mileage. The big factor in the mileage will be to rear-end gear. a 4:30 gear will be...

    Brand New Elkridge - Roof leaking

    I'd be talking to your dealer about some warranty work, otherwise re-sealing the seam is the best fix.

    Is an F-450 a good idea?

    Re: F450 Insurance We love our F-450, but insurance can be a bit tricky and may take some shopping but it can be done. A quick question is are you thinking about a F-450 with a pick-up bed or a utility box? I have seen quite a few neat setups with utility boxes and slide in campers that way...

    tow vehicle tires

    I have a set of Hankook AH11 on the 450, but they are 19.5" wheels so choices are a bit more limited, but they are holding up well and run smooth on the highway.

    Dale, welcome to the Heartland owners forum. I am sure that someone here can point you in the right direction, but we need to know what trailer and floorplan you have.

    Cyclone bedroom slide out mod to create more storage space

    We need pictures :) Having modified the under-bed storage several time on our Landmark, I can tell you why the hydraulic unit is not mounted under the slide. It is simple the is no room. most of the "contraption" is mounted over the overhang part of the fifth or close to it, and mounting it...

    towing vehicle behind, make sure you take it out of park.

    two thoughts: Back almost 10 years ago when I was working at a 4wd shop, we had a customer two in a Suzuki Samurai, that he had forgot to put in netural, he towed it about 50 miles in first gear at about 55mph, I forget the exact math but that ment the the poor little engine was turning almost...

    Best Water Hose??

    If you need 300' of hose just go buy a roll of 1/2" PEX and crimp on a couple hose ends on it. it might still be more portable than 300' of vinyl hose.

    King Size Mattress??

    It should be a standard "RV King" and should measure out to be 70" x 80". I found several local mattress makers that could make a custom replacement. Camping world or other large RV store should have replacements too. I cut down the bed frame about 9" and replaced it with a very nice Queen...

    2010 Landmark Augusta and 2006 F-450 Hauler

    After enjoying full-timing for over two years, we are now going to be in one place for about 5 years and the climate will make it hard to live in the Landmark through the winter. We want to buy a small house with a yard for our dogs, and must sell the trailer and truck to make it all work. We...

    Just moved to Laramie

    So far it has been VERY windy and cold. The wind was strong enough to rock the trailer noticeably even with the strong-arms locked in. It might take a few months to get used to the absence of trees and water. I am going back to school to get a PharmD degree so in a few more years ya'll can...

    Just moved to Laramie

    We are now officially in Laramie, WY. We hated to leave Gig Harbor, WA, but in the end it will cost so much less for me to get another degree here in WY than in WA. We stayed in Heyburn, ID one night and stayed next to a Big Country that was skirted. We did not get a chance to make contact with...

    Spare tire air pressure valve

    I would think you want the valve stem facing up, that way the valve is protected from road debris. Why does the slide have to be retracted to lower the spare?
