    Re: New RV Owner

    Question...I’m buying a power jack to install myself. Do I need a jack to support the tongue while I swap them or can I use the electric stabilizing braces?

    You'll need to brace the tongue when you do it, the stabilzer braces arent designed to hold the weight of the camper. The weight could bend them or hurt the gear boxes.

    Any suggestions for backup cameras for the prewired system?

    I'm not too familiar with the backup cameras I've kind of looked at them but you could take a look at a Garmin backup camera/GPS combo it's quite a bit cheaper than the Furrion backup camera.

    Re: New RV Owner

    So before I bought this trailer most of the reviews were outstanding. Now that I have it, most of the reviews are really bad. Starting to get scared. Is it because nobody reviews unless things go wrong or do these Mallards really “leak like a sieve?”

    I find people that are happy or have very little issues don't write reviews. We didn't write a review.

    We have a 2017 Cyclone 4018 and have had very few issues. The main one was with the slide and we got it fixed.

    We have lived in it for almost 2 years full time.

    Weve lived full time in our Mallard M33 for a little over a year and it had horrible reviews which I knew going into it, but I figured as long as I give the thing a good look over during the pre-inspection then just shy of an appliance going out which wouldnt be Heartlands fault we should be ok and well long story short it has been the best purchase we've made next to our Ram 2500. We had a slide issue that Heartland fixed without a hiccup and we had a water leak due to lack of caulk by the tank flush when it rained but that was an easy fix and really just routine maintenance but ours has been absolutely amazing!

    BLR is right... in general, people that are satisfied hardly ever speak up until something goes wrong. That's why it is easier to find negative reviews.

    With forums and social media, when an original poster writes about a problem, he may get 3, or 5, or 10, or 50 replies. Then when your search pulls up that original problem, it also displays all of the replies. The result is one problem can generate multiple pages of results from the search engine. So not only are you looking at "squeaky wheel" posts, you'll seeing them through a multiplication lens of the search engines.
