    Re: Is this normal?

    I was able to gain a lot of room in my basement. I have over 4,000 lb of cargo carrying. Might as well add extra space. Close to 40 sq feet of extra floor space added.

    I changed the batteries so I could test the TV while doing the install, I installed wireless HDMI systems. FTR This was March of 2019 and was snowing outside.

    Re: Is this normal?

    Well done. I just bought a Milestone 377MB as a first time RV owner and found exactly the same mess behind my wall, even some screws and wire connectors as others have said. Planning on sprucing it up this weekend. Any tips on new wall placement before I get started? If you had to add new partition sections, what thickness plywood/OSB did you use?

    Also, mine didn't come with a roof ladder, and the shady dealer said that was normal on this model. They wouldn't let me get on the roof to inspect the vent seals because I would have needed to use one of their ladders and they said that it was a liability issue. I was prepared with my own ladder and a tube of dicor as soon as I got off the lot. Thankfully they all looked great and didn't need any touching up. Is the part about the missing ladder correct, or was I correct in feeling that he was trying to rush me off the lot vs addressing issues? -Matt

    Hi farfromdunn,

    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum.

    There are some models that don't come with a ladder. The 377MB picture on the Heartland website shows a rear view without a ladder, so maybe your dealer was correct.

    Welcome to the group from Show Low, Arizona, for now.
    As far as the question about the basement wall, some individuals have used aluminum "C" channel as a sliding channel. They then cut the portions of the basement wall down a little so the wall can slide or be tilted in/out.
    One addition I did to the basement wall was to add "E Track" sections so I can hang extension cords, hoses, etc...

    Re: Is this normal?

    Over the weekend I pulled out the aft wall (left) in the basement storage, cleaned up the plumbing, wiring, and ductwork, and gained 3 sqft of previously unused floor space. 3 square feet doesn't sound like a lot, but when you only started with 15 sqft, 3 more is a 20% increase. I'll take it! Next project on the list: 400Ah of solar.
