    Slide Out motor pulled off the wall

    I just purchased a 2020 Heartland North Trail 31QUBH a month ago. When I put out the slide out last week, I heard a giant popping noise. The motor came off the wall. (The screws holding it in place all came loose.) When the motor came loose, it twisted a couple of times on the chains, and then...

    Question on the Refrigerator

    Hi. I have a 2018 26BRLS TT and the fridge can run on either electric or propane (button switch at top). Will the fridge run on battery while towing? The reason I ask is I had the fridge turned on when I hooked up (set to electric) and it seemed fine. I was thinking this way it would be...

    Manual Slide Operation

    Are there any North Trail owners out there that have had experience with manually retracting the slide room? I can see what I believe to be the motor one the inside top section right in the middle of the room. Was also given a flexible rod to use with a drill in case of Manual retraction but...

    Spread axle wheel chock

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for chocking and blocking the spread axle in my North Trail. Most wedges don't go wide enough to accommodate this spread. The ones that do are expensive so I want to make sure it's money well spent. Right now I have some cheap plastic wedges but still get some...

    Bad timing I guess

    Hello all, We just picked up our new 2014 21FBS last week that was built in Sep. 2013, kind of getting an early jump on the next year I guess. :confused: With temps getting into the 20's tonight we had to go ahead and winterize. I guess we'll just have to take it out and not use the water...

    Slide toppers

    <!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Can I get some opinions of slide toppers. A dealer told me it would be a good place to save some $. He said if leaves do get blown up under the slide topper that can be worse than trying to keep them out. Any thoughts?

    my suggestions for the new fx-22

    I hope that the design of the FX-22 may have the capacity for an oven, even if only the half-time option and I also hope the wall thickness may allow for a separate shower faucet and not the dreaded sink faucet extension hose that appears in the Edge M22. Too much water ends up on the floor...
