    Roof Questions

    My roof was not that bad as far as gumminess. When getting my quote for the RVArmor, the guy left a footprint impression, that was the first time I’d seen that happen. It was also 100 degrees that day! No matter, it’s encapsulated in the new roof material now, so no worries! I’m sure if it...

    Roof Questions

    RV FlexArmor roof done in June of 2020, love it!! I was just up there checking it and the roof is a little dirty, but no signs of issues anywhere. Best part is the peace of mind, we will not have leak problems or hail damage to the roof ever again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Roof Questions

    FlexArmor has installation facilities across the country, ours was done in Denton, Tx. Our roof had hail damage, but was also showing signs of becoming gummy. Other 2016 Big Country owners have had their roofs deemed defective by Dicor. They have received replacement material, but they will have...

    4275RW dryer vent?

    I read in a Heartland Owner’s group on Facebook that someone vented their vented combo out the floor to underneath the rig. Might be an option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Damage to kitchen slide

    I have heard that’s an issue with residential fridges. In our case it’s the gas absorption type, that’s securely fastened (or should be) to a the opening on all sides. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Damage to kitchen slide

    Originally unit came with Dexter suspension. In 2017 we changed to MorRyde SRE 4000, which failed and were replaced by MorRyde in 2019 due to defective rubber. Our second set started to do the same thing. The summer of 2021 we changed to MorRyde CRE3000, which is what Heartland had been putting...

    Damage to kitchen slide

    Thanks for the info. If we can fix ourselves, it won’t be worth the effort to track them down and file a claim. New cooktop is $200. Wood repair seems east enough if we can get to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Damage to kitchen slide

    No Dave, it was like this before the slide was opened. We were in a construction zone with lanes moved over. We encountered what looked like a a heaved section of road, felt like a speed bump. We hit it about 20mph and couldn’t slow down before the trailer hit it, too. It caused the cabinet over...

    Damage to kitchen slide

    Due to bad roads, we found this once we stopped. Cracked board over the fridge and fridge slightly misaligned. (Corner is about the center of the slide.) No other damage. Fridge runs fine, slide operates correctly. 2016 Big Country, 2118 Norcold fridge. We’ve never had to deal with fridge...

    Pretty dead here why?

    Are you referring to the Heartland Owner’s Forum in general, or the Cyclone section? I’ve been a member here since 2009. As Facebook took off and younger folks began to be the majority of new owners, Facebook became a quicker access point and faster response from like-minded folks willing to...

    Sailun Tire Recall

    Wow that’s crap. Tires are RECALLED PER NHTSA, you own 6 of them, they replace 6 of them. I had 5. They replaced them all, even the spare that have never been on the road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sailun Tire Recall

    We bought new Sailun tires in October of 2020, because we had a big winter trip planned for December 2020 and our tires were 5 years old. Well, COVID had other plans, and we didn’t take that trip. Put the tires on in January of 2021. Didn’t get many trips in, and our rescheduled trip for 2021...

    Mor/ryde SRE 4000 problems

    We had this failure start about 1.5 years after install. At the Rally in Goshen, I asked MorRyde to look at them, and they gave us new parts, but we had to install ourselves. We did, and the same thing appeared to be happening again. So last fall we replaced the SRE4000 with the CRE3000. We...

    Heartland Owner's Club Satisfaction Survey

    Exactly. A new “host” may not invest time and funds into making a rally as extravagant as former chapters did. We didn’t spend our funds extravagantly, but used our budget to pay for items that folks may not have spent money on themselves. We subsidized or paid the cost of some more expensive...

    Retiring from Chapter Leadership

    Well all, it’s time for us to pass the reins to someone else for the West Texas Chapter. We have loved giving the western part of Texas a gateway to club membership and hosting another stop on the rally trail for our fellow Heartlanders. We have enjoyed discovering new places for rallies...

    Dripping where it shouldn’t

    Thanks for the suggestion, original author will probably not have those fasteners on their underbelly. Likely screws, best removed with an impact driver. The underbelly is a challenge to take down. Most of what is leaking will be accessible first by taking the wall down. A visible leak coming...

    Most of your plumbing, tanks and electrical, furnace, water heater and pump are located behind the wall inside your storage compartment. This pic is our Big country and I am pointing to the wall in question. There are screws that hold this wall in place, they are around the edges. If you can...

    Excessive problems

    Some of the items you have stated are maintenance items, like caulking. Some are component failure, no fault of Heartland directly. Some are frame issues - rust will happen without preventative maintenance. Lippert had some issues with bad frame hangers across multiple brands... seems like...

    I’ll chime in too, I was an early adopter in 2016, and we love love love these steps! They’ve held up extremely well in 5 years of full-time use! Only maintenance is silicone spray, seems like they need it about once a year. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Follow up on hail damage to roof.

    Consider a FlexArmor, NOT RV Armor. They are not the same thing. FlexArmor has to be taken to a certified installer, who will remove the roof items, fix any issues, then spray the mixture on, paint, reinstall items — all in 3 days (2 nights). But it will likely never be damaged by hail...

    Trailer King RST tires

    Tom, what 5th wheel do you have? I noticed your tire size in the picture is 215/75... The typical Sailun tires people have had very little problems with since the early 2010’s are the S637, size ST 235/85R16. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What do you like about having an RV Lock on your entry door?

    I was an early adopter of the Rv lock when they had the separate keypad, and it worked great! Then we upgraded to the all-in-one v4, and have actually moved it from one rig to another. Added the baggage doors as well! Service after the sale has been amazing, RVLock helped me troubleshoot a 4...

    We purchased ours new in 2016. We’ve had lots of little issues over those 5 years of full-time living. It seemed like a few years later rv sales were booming and manufacturers were having a hard time finding qualified laborers. I seem to recall that in the summer of 2017 Heartland was just...
