    Wasted space.

    You might give HL service a call, have your VIN# handy and ask them what might be hidden in that space before you start making holes in the side.

    Mallard m28 did i get a lemon too???

    Wow, sorry to hear about you issues. Just a word of HL service yourself and explain what happened. Email pix to them and let them make advise your dealer what to do. Never ever take a dealers word for what HL said to do. You need to keep HL in the loop yourself.

    ATF: Road Warrior - White switch plate under controls

    Does look like a home style wall plate with a "RED" rocker switch?? If so, it is more than likely the electric side {120V} of the water heater. Never turn on the switch unless the water heater tank is full of water.

    Battery charge when pulling down the road

    All statements are true. As amp draw goes up...voltage goes down and visa versa. At least it always has in my world of a DC voltage system. JMHO

    Battery charge when pulling down the road

    This discussion has me wondering about the statement that " the truck only puts 3-4 amps to the coach". My truck has a 140 amp alt and a 40 amp fuse to feed the coach. Am I missing something?? The OP states that he has a "voltage reading of 12.77 at the truck. But what is the amp reading...

    squeaky door

    Check and see if you can get the hinge pins to come out. Use a small drift punch and a small hammer. If you can....put a lite coat of grease on them. On a RV door might be better to remove one hinge at a time as not damage the door or door jamb. The way I fix sqeaky door in my S/B,s.

    Slide Out Bulb Seal Melting

    I have seen the same thing on cars and trucks. Harsh sun and heat (UV) eats up foam seals. Nature of the beast.

    Sewage hose storage for multiple bathrooms of 427

    I used 6" plastic fence square tubing...glued a fence tube cap on one end (street side} and put a Igloo cooler hinge on the other using the same type cap. I strapped it to the frame using 1/8" aluminum straps. Simple and cheaper than the Lippert ones.

    Almost new Heartland Road Warrior owner

    Any time their is a part ordered, never believe a dealer that they ordered the part. Call HL service and ask them if the part was ordered and when it will be shipped. You can also have HL send you the part and install it yourself.

    hello, everyone ,, getting ready to upgrade to a 5er. help

    The one thing to know is the much the trailer and truck total weight can be. Remember, that weight will include people, dogs, cats, and anything you carry in the truck bed. When looking at trailers, take note of the GROSS WEIGHT RATING.....not the empty weight. Weigh your truck full...

    Trailer brake question

    If there is grease on the drums you will need to replace the shoes. That sounds like a warranty issue to me.

    2014 Bighorn 3070 Mystery Switch

    One of two things. Could be for the "scare" lites or for a plug on the outside for awning lites. That plug is somewhere near an awning arm. Plug something in, turn on the switch and see what happens.
