    Has anyone repaired or replaced a slideout ram cylinder?

    I replaced mine years ago. It is helpful to have assistance. Also, make sure to measure where your adjustment nuts are before you take it apart.

    Quality of workmanship by Heartland

    We have a 2017 and have had our share of issues. We count our blessings though compared to the problems many are having with new ones these days. Those same issues make us dread needing to replace our current rig. We have put about 8k a year on it for the last 6. Not sure how much longer it will...

    Heartland Owner's Club to Continue in 2022 and Beyond

    Once again, as proven time and time again, once the suits get a hold of something (logo change), it gets ruined. It is obvious that the folks making this decision have zero idea of what they are doing. Make it better for the club? Making things more difficult on the chapter leaders doesn't make...

    Why aren’t North Trails more popular???

    We see NT's almost every week. We see many more Mallards though and probably due to price point? We used to own a NT and you are right, it is a good rig to have. It is amazing how many HL owners have zero clue of the owners forum. Maybe that is the difference in the lower number of posts about them.

    Sailun Truck Tires????

    A friend of mine in N CO put those on his fleet of electrician trucks. Some of their miles are dirt and gravel roads and most of their rigs are 1 ton or heavier. None of those tires lasted a year. I am not sure how long they would last just doing highway miles. He went back to Michelin's.

    Springs

    Last we checked we were right at 13000 on the 2 7k axles. Total weight is 16500. We have lots of outside storage in the rear but have very little weight there. Heartland has been unable to tell us how much weight the rear storage can safely handle. While the living room to the front rides...

    Springs

    Thank you for the reply. I had the thought of doing this since we have so much riding behind the axles, but didn't think it was a wise decision. We have done about 14K miles every year for the last 4. It just seems like all that bouncing has wore out what we have.

    Are you recommending I get 8k springs instead of the 7k?

    I have 7K axles and the springs are flattened out. Is there a better option than Dexter replacements out there?

    Sailun Tire Blowout

    The last two sets I purchased were from Big O. I just had a set put on two months ago, they had 2020 dates, and only 4. Sales guy said they are hard to find this year.

    Re: Electrical issues Well I got my issue resolved finally. Thank you to those that responded. Between all of you and HL support telling where the circuit went, it is fixed. The circuit in question goes down the door side, to the slide junction box, and then all the way to the rear, where it...

    Re: Electrical issues I hear you. Problem is I don't know if the circuit goes from the back to the middle or the other way around. Good to know I am still thinking about it straight. Appreciate the reply. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

    SOLVED: Electrical issues

    Re: Electrical issues So I changed out and checked the connections for the outside junction boxes and it changed nothing. Is there a circuit diagram for the BC somewhere I can look at? It seems to me I need to find the circuit that all these outlet daisy chain off of.

    Hydraulic Slides

    What I am referring to isn't on the bottom where the rollers track. I am talking about on the outside, at the very bottom corner of the slide, on each side, under the windows. I am probably not explaining it very well.

    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...

    Trailer Brake Check

    We had the same issue for months. Ford checked everything on the pickup. I am pretty good with electric and found nothing wrong with the trailer. On a whim I replaced all of the trailer fuses and relays on the ford, problem solved.

    Wrong roof caulk or just poor product?

    I had to do our entire roof line after 6 months of ownership because of the same thing. The stuff they used made it seem to me that it wasn't very important.

    RV owners, like the ones on this forum, not park owners. This park doesn't recommend anyone due to an unknown liability issue.

    The weep hole issue was probably an install mistake and may be covered under warranty if you still have one. Bathroom door open and close design? Does it open and close? USB ports are easy to add yourself. Shelves are easy to add as well. If you are not comfy doing the work, any experienced...
