    Re: Prospective buyer questions

    Dave,

    I think about 2 years ago, because of a lot of feedback just like yours, some of the Product Managers did take a look at how to eliminate the water feed line freezing. The simplest fix at the lowest cost....get rid of the ice maker and the water feed line. Would have saved a lot of money.

    Good news for us, they decided to keep the ice makers, even though some maintenance is required.

    The dealer pumped my ice maker full of anti freeze, while it was on the lot for sale. Since I dont plan on ever using it, I left it that way.

    What is good news for you is bad news for me. Evidently those who made that decision missed the engineering credit (if they even studied engineering) course "Engineering Economics." Now that Heartland approved thier trailers for "full time" those who experience water damage from frozen ice make lines while living in thier trailer in low temperature areas can seek warranty repairs. Bad engineering principles/practice costs more money.
