    The best way I know is to use it. All of my leather has broken in after continual use.

    Winter Camping

    We camp year round. As for temp limits for us, single digit temps are usually concerning. We have a heated hose, or use the onboard tank. Heater runs more often then not. We also keep some small electric heaters going to help the furnace.

    Reinforce bumper?

    Do an internet search, lots of reinforcement kits available, not sure if I can post links. Keep in mind, anything tied to that bumper will get bounced around quite a bit.

    I went with the Kicker 43DSC504 D Series. They were a perfect fit. 69 dollars on Amazon.

    Landing gear and slide same time??

    Mine was acting the same way on our second trip out. The landing gear was fine but as soon as I tried to operate a slide the landing gear would operate as well. When extending the slides, the landing gear would extend, when retracting the slides the landing gear would retract. I didnt have time...

    LOL, mine had labels from the factory, but they were incorrect as found during the walkthrough. Now I have these really cool label maker labels over the factory labels. Nice big white stickers on my Heartland control panel. 🤬

    Towing RV with a Ford Ranger

    I agree, you are pushing it. As stated, visit a scale and you will know for sure. If your tanks are full and/or you have your clothes, food, gear, etc loaded you could be very well bumping up against your capacity or exceeding it.

    Awning stuck and wont move.

    Hi guys, 2021 Elkridege 37bar. Main awning is stuck fully out and will not move. It twitched just a bit yesterday when I hit the button but has not move since. Fuses appear to be good, any ideas? I checked for pinched wires in the arm. Also, this awning has been really slow since new, so I am...

    Tow vehicle options

    Your pin weight on that unit exceeds 3k pounds and the gross weight is 18k. Look at potential trucks you are interested in and combine the gross weight of the coach, plus the gross weight of the truck, and if the number is less than the gross combined weight of the truck rating you should be...

    Can you turn fridge on while towing?

    Our fridge is always running when towing as we usually have it full of food and ice. Our previous camper ran propane when towing, our current rig is electric only so it runs off the inverter in transit.

    Welcome to the board! What vehicle are you towing with, makes a difference in the hitch set up. Congrats on the new camper. Cant advise on the bed, ours came with a king and the wife wants to keep it as apparently I am a bed hog.

    Fuel F-287

    After you weigh, go inside to the fuel desk and they will print the ticket for you. Should be just around 10 bucks. Then once you get the trailer, go back and weigh again. I have rarely seen a line, most of the time the scales are empty. Should be near the fuel station for trucks. At least that...

    Fuel F-287

    Agreed with above, it sounds like you are good. The hitch on your truck should have a sticker on it with capacity, given its a 20 model 1 ton it should be rated. Go find a Flying J or Pilot and weigh your truck. Find the door sticker inside the driver side and pillar and it will tell you what...

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Update, happy to report from Lake Texoma that the Weboost is performing as expected. Outside the camper and away from the internal Weboost antenna I have 1 bar 4G, inside the camper I have full bars. We are happy with that.

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Looks like we will be by 184624, just north of 70 at Johnson Creek. Thank you guys, I need to do my research a little better when planning locations. But this is only when I have to have service for work. Other than that I prefer to be some where my phone does not work. LOL

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Darn, I was hoping to not carry a pole and buy another antenna. We are moving to Lake Texoma on Sunday, maybe do a little more evaluation based on multiple locations and then decide if I want to invest in another antenna. Thank you guys, really appreciate the information.

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Thank you for the tips and ideas all. My exterior antenna is a omnidirectional, just the small round one that comes with the Reach RV. I have 1 bar 5G with it off, and 1 bar 5G with it on. Moving around inside or going outside it drops to 4G, but still 1 bar. I know I wont get something from...

    What did you do to your camper today?

    I did it yesterday, we installed a Weboost Reach RV. So far so good, still evaluating its value.

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Thank you for all of the ideas all. I have the weboost installed, I drilled up and hit some spongy feeling resistance. I inspected as best I could with a flash light and found it was insulation. I cut the roof membrane and finished the cut. Box is installed, wire fished through and all should be...

    How thick is the roof of my Elkridge?

    Not that I want to do it, but I need to drill a hole in the roof of my Elkridge 37BAR. Will be installing a Weboost and I want to put the booster near the bar TV and power outlet. I plan to start from the inside and drill up, does anyone know the distance from the interior ceiling to the roof? I...

    Conti Terra HD3?

    Hi all, 2020 F450 with 19.5's. I am looking at the Conti Terra HD3, has anyone had any experience with them or can suggest an alternative similar to them. I want a more aggressive tire but my options are limited with this wheel size. Just realized I posted in the wrong forum, mods please move...

    Replacing outdoor speakers?

    Speakers came in, fit back exactly in the same holes. No modification needed to the rig and they sound much better.

    Trouble filling tanks

    It looks to me like you need to keep your hose connected as shown, but turn your valve to Tank to fill. And leave it there when dry camping. Only use Normal if you are connected to a water spigot and that should bypass the Tank. Trying to fill the tank with valves as shown the water hose should...

    Furrion Oven Won’t Stay Lit

    Dont want to butt into the OP's thread, but since we may have similar issues I would like to comment. I would like to try the temp at 350, I usually set ours at 300 because it burns things if set too high, but will give it a try this week and see what happens.

    Furrion Oven Won’t Stay Lit

    My Suburban does the same thing, I continually relite it, thankfully it lights easy. I have to hover and look through the window to make sure the burner is still lite. I am assuming we may have the same issue.

    Auto leveling issues

    Another thought, at least this is what happened to me: Do you slides operate the jacks? Mine did after the first use, wound up having a stuck valve.
