    Re: Ordered a 2018 Big Country

    I bought my 2015 in early May 2014 off the lot! Who knows when the dealership received it. But the couch cushion was worn out from people looking at the RV on the lot and sitting on that seat.

    Re: Ordered a 2018 Big Country

    Our 2018 Big Country was delivered to the dealer this week and we got to do our first walk through today. We'll be going back another time for the PDI because the dealer still needs to install the washer/dryer.

    From what I could see, there was no Correct Trac, but the ceiling has definetly been redone. They reducted the a/c system and added multiple air returns for better flow. I still got the Fantastic Fan in the kitchen, and they added USB plugs throughout to include next to the theater chairs and on both sides of the bed (right next to the shelves under the windows). I also noticed the electric 50amp cord real is a forced option now. No other major changes that I noticed, but I'm sure I'll see more when I get more time in it.

Seems that mfrs do add/delete items each model year much to our chagrin. Plus, don't get the next calendar year model's being out in Feb. Seems they ought to go to at least May/June before the changeover.
    This is pretty standard in the industry. Actually there normally are 2 models in a given year. An early lets say 2017 and a late 2017. To find your units build date the sticker can many times be found under the BR slide near the front cap on the drivers side.

    Cheers!

    Nice to see the upgrades! It's funny on the USB ports, as those are the exact areas we have "added" our own, in the form of a USB port/plug "station."

    Yep, it was a good surprise. We were already planning to install USB ports in the same spots too. I can mark that one off the DIY list.

    Re: Ordered a 2018 Big Country

    Congrats Magnum on your new coach! We just placed our order last week and I asked again about the Correct Trac and was told it's still standard.

    BTW, is there a link on "How to post pics" anywheres?

    Did Heartland tell you that? All the new larger 2018 coaches I saw at the rv show came with MorRyde suspension, and on all coaches I've seen with it, none had the yellow discs of CorrectTrac.

    Re: Ordered a 2018 Big Country

    I posed the question to our salesman who in turn (and I assume and you know what they say about assume) asked his factory rep and said yes it is standard along w/ the MorRyde. Went onto say to salesman that I've read/heard that is was either an option or discontinued. Sadly, no local shows around in my parts that have any LM, BH or BC's to ask as well. Will be e-mailing salesman in a day or so about couple other things, and will ask again.

    Re: Ordered a 2018 Big Country

    Correct Track seemed like a good idea back in 2012 and 2013. And I think it was at the 2013 North American Rally that Lippert was checking the alignment on axles to see if Correct Track could help.

    But of the thousands of trailers that shipped with Correct Track, I wonder if even 10 owners ever had their Correct Track alignment checked and adjusted. Over the years when people posted about axle problems, it was often noted that while Correct Track could compensate for one type of problem, it didn't offer a complete set of adjustments to re-align an axle.

    Early on, Camping World was the primary venue for getting Correct Track alignment checked. I'd be surprised if you could find more than a handful of locations around the country that can still find their laser alignment gear and know how to use it.

    Frankly, I don't think more than a handful of people ever benefited and I'm surprised Heartland didn't delete this feature several years ago.

    Lippert's Correct Track seemed to be a way to correct poor alignment of the hangars on frames from the factory (aka Lippert). By marketing Correct Tract as a "feature benefit", they effectively transferred the responsibility of proper alignment to the owner.
