    Hydraulic Slides

    Does anyone know the purpose of the black aluminum strips on the outside bottom of the slide? I have one that is really loose, but It doesn't really look like it serves a purpose. The same thing is on our cable driven slide as well but not on the schwintek.

    B&W Ford Puck Hitch

    I got a new pickup and new hitch. If anyone is using the B&W hitch for the factory puck system, on a 17 plus Super duty, I could use some measurements to get mine set up. Bed to hitch height or which bolt hole you used to install the hitch head supports would do I think. I am just trying to have...

    Performance Trailer Braking

    This is a thank you to PTB. Last Saturday we ended up being stranded at a truck stop south of Albuquerque. We had stopped for fuel and during my walk around I found the rear drivers side wheel on the trailer leaning out. From disassembly I determined that the spindle nut retaining clip failed. I...

    Front cap trim

    There is a black strip/trim piece that runs all the way around the front cap where it attaches to the rv. Can someone please tell me how that piece is held on? I have a leak that is causing minor delam and it looks to me like the caulking is all that is holding it on but I wanted to make sure.

    Another AC Question

    In the past when we have needed AC we have always just set the fan speed on high and left things alone. Mostly because we have been in high humidity areas and any setting less than high would freeze up the units. We are now in 90 degree weather with 20 percent humidity and have been playing...

    Customer Service

    Has anyone else noticed a falling off of the customer service/warranty at Heartland? It has been over a month and a half and I cannot get any resolution for our issues, most of which I can fix myself if I had the parts. I cannot even get a return phone call from the brand manager. This is our...

    Anderson valve question

    This is our first rig with this valve. My understanding is that to use the on board tank water we need to switch it from city to normal. Our pump is pumping water on city, out of the fresh tank, into the coach when we need it. The water is off here due to a broken main. Is this ok to do or do I...

    AC noise

    Rear whisper quiet ac is not so quiet. It is making a rattling sound which can be heard much better in the return vents than the flow vents. Unit is working just fine otherwise. Anyone have an idea where to start looking for the cause?

    Close call

    I had just laid down in bed for the night, last night, when just about every fire apparatus in our town went by the house. This morning I get a call from the owner of the storage lot where we park or rig. The BBQ trailer next to us caught fire. Luckily the trailer kept the fire fairly contained...

    Norcold stopped cooling on AC

    Our Norcold 1210 quit cooling on AC. The interior of the fridge is staying cool and the freezer will not freeze anything. It is not showing any codes on the front readout. I can confirm that the cooling fans are working. I can also confirm that the little red light behind the exterior access...

    Wanted to ask this question to see if anyone else has experienced what we are. The level-up itself works just fine. We still get the popping noise after putting 2 quarts of the alternative cat fluid in but not as bad. Our new issue is movement. 4 plus times a day we will be in our rig just...

    Grounding the rig

    I just had a very stern fella tell me that the snap pads on my rig need to be removed because they are dangerous. He also stated that putting any rv on blocks was dangerous as well. The danger is that the landing gear helps ground the rig so that you do not have a chance of electrical shocks. He...

    Suburban Oven

    We have an issue with our oven. Lighting it is easy and getting it to stay lit is not a problem. The issue is that the burner flame is the same on high heat as it is on low heat. Is there anything I can check or adjust to fix this issue?

    Bottomless Lakes

    We visited this place last week near Roswell NM. I cannot remember all the specifics but, there is a river NW or here that literally ends by going underground and it feeds these tiny lakes.

    AC short cycling

    So after almost a year of owning this rig we finally are able to use the air conditioners. The rear ac runs just fine for about an hour and then it starts turning on and off sometimes every 10 to 15 seconds. It will then run fine for about 15 minutes or so and then start rapidly cycling again...
