    Re: Just bought a new Cyclone 4005

    Congratulations on your new fifth wheel.
    Plan for alot of fun. Heartland warranty was excellent call them directly with your Vin # and always get pre-approved for all warranty
    Personally I would suggest that you do a walk-through inspection before you sign. Have the deal hook up city water and electricity.
    Look for water leaks , AC running correct. Hot water heater working on both ac and lp. Slides opening and closing. Hydraulic system running correct. Check all slides for proper movement in and out as well as the proper stow position.

    As far as the extended warranty, I purchased Cornerstones 5 year Extended warranty two days before the MFG warranty expired. This allowed me to have the full 5 years of coverage.
    I paid $1800.00 and cornerstone was excellent. They fixed everything to include five AC units , the norcold 1210 replacement, the tv and hot water heater. They spent over ten thousand.
    I can only speak from my experience and with the contract that I had at that time as it was written then.
    The did send a private inspector each time ( adjuster) but always fixed it.

    The extended warranties are good to have unfortunately we canít get them to cover anything structurally. Weíre having major issues with our Cyclone. Walls and pop down porch. The door is warped and the hinges look like they stripped them out when they actually mounted the door. But thatís nothing compared to the issue were having with Dexter axles. Weíve lost brakes on this coach five times. Iíve never had a structural problem with a coach or trailer before. Read the warranty paperwork closely! Weíre pushing $9000 in repairs right now.

    I am glad to see that you have the 4005. We have a 2018 model and the one thing that I would suggest you check is the amount of heat the furnace puts out in the living area. I am still working on that problem. We have tons of heat in the master bedroom but little in the living area. Also, the thermostat in the master bedroom controls the furnace. One other thing to look at is the small refrigerator in the outside kitchen area. We never did find a manual on it and it seems to have no adjust for temperature nor an off/on switch. We finally unplugged it when we were not using it. If you did not specify dual batteries when you purchased the unit it is a good idea due to the electrical load with the hydraulic slide outs and Level-Up systems. Do you have the residential refrigerator?

    On your furnace issue, you might want to check the duct connections on the side of the furnace in the basement if you haven't already. I recently upgraded to the new brass 4-way Anderson water valve, and while making the waterline connections I noticed one of the ducts had come loose from the furnace. It didn't look like they fit very tightly, the end just slips in and twists. I've bought some metal tape for ductwork and will get back in there and seal up the connections when I get a chance.

    Congrats! We, too, have a 2019 4005 and love it. We've had a few issues with drain plumbing, but nothing significant. We will be going to Alaska in the next month or so and will find out if it fairs better than our 2018 cedar creek hathaway.
    We did trade out the nor cold fridge for a residential model. Even tho we dry camp from time to time, we prefer the residential for space and ice making capability.
    Enjoy!
