Feels like I only have rubber on the floor and it’s stretched. should there be lumber under the rubber? What’s the best way to check what’s going on. Frustrating to say the least. Update. Checked no...

    Hey all, looking for any smart ideas you all may have about storing two pairs of snow skis. Anyone come up with a good place? I was hoping they might sneak in under my couch, that didn't work. They're also too long for the W/D closet. I think I'm left with the basement, any good ideas on a...

    interior cabinet use in Elkridge 34qrsl

    Just purchased and wondering how others use storage spaces to best advantage. I am especially interested in high cabinets in rear. I think I will need a stepstool to reach them so I am thinking that it will be for seldom used items. Also tall closet by entry seems to be for jackets but I am...

    Propane tank storage...

    I just took possession of my Oakmont by Heartland and there are two large propane tanks forward of the pass thru storage. Why are these not under lock and key? Is it by design? A safety feature? It has a locking system inside the bay, but not on the door itself. thanks for any replies.

    Have new Cyclone 2105 HD edition TH I see a lot of motorhomes and trailers with a 110 power line going somewhere into their RV in our storage lot. What is this doing for them? Are they perhaps trickle charging the batteries? I have been turning the Battery Bypass switch so I don't drain the...

    Bought a "new" North Trail built over a year ago.

    I recently took delivery of a 2014 Caliber North Trail 30RKDD. I discovered a sticker on the storage door saying it was built in Feb 2013. That means it sat outside for over a year. Never waxed, don't know if the tires ever rolled anywhere. Roof not treated. And, of course, a lot of rust...

    RV Storage Bin Tips

    Full-timers especially carry more in their RV than most. Those plastic storage bins are fantastic. Well, that is if you know which bin has the blue scarf or cowboy boots you haven’t used since last year and you need it now. First size up the area you will be placing the storage bins. Based on...

    We just bought a Cyclone 3110, and have been placing things from our old camper into this new one. My old one was loaded with cabinets. The 3110 is very lacking in this area, however I dont think anymore could have been put in. We havent yet taken our first trip, but the layout seems to be...

    Storing portable waste wagon

    If this is answered somewhere else, please let me know. My searches find nothing............. We have a rather large honey wagon; it's about 42 gallons. We empty gray water only. The good thing is that it only takes 2 trips to completely dump the gray tanks. The bad thing is that it takes a...

    Has anyone installed barrier nets on the inside of their unit? We want to use the top of a pantry unit and the area on top of the microwave for storage, but need to contain items up there during transit. The nets would need to follow the contours of the pantry/microwave top and cover 5-6 1/2...

    Does anyone out there know if there is a cover available yet for the Heartland MPG series of trailers?

    Bed modification to Queen and more under bed storage

    In the summer I was able to modify the King bed frame to fit our new Queen size bed. I narrowed the frame on one side by 12" and centered the bed frame on the center of the slide. While I had the frame appart I took the chance to lift the front of the bed by 1 1/2" so my head would be up...

    Table and Plywood Storage

    It would be nice if there was a good storage position for the table top. It's fairly heavy and I don't want it sliding around inside the unit. I don't want to just lay it on the floor, I'm afraid it will become scratched up. My current solution is to put it on the bottom bunk and place the top...

    Storage mod - under master bed

    Hey guys, Most of the mods I've done have already been published, but this is something I thought might be of interest... I know that some of you have already done extreme changes with the living room table area. I was not a fan of the kidney bean shaped tables that come with these 3010's...

    Well, I thought this year would be different, 3 Dry-zee airs in our 09-3055 BH. but sadly, no .The doors that touch each other in the kitchen & bedroom swell during the damp winter months. Then they bind. I have to tap the hinges out to fix the problem. The previous 5th's I had used a vertical...

    Storage Size????

    Are the basement and front storage areas the same on all the Bighorns no matter what model ? I know the Genny prep takes up space. A friend asked and I didn't have an answer. Thanks

    step storage

    Just gained me some new storage space under the steps of my BH3670. All I had to do is remove 4 screws (two from each step) and put a piano hinge on the back side of each step and fasten it to the riser and presto more room to put stuff! Maybe even a safe could go in there with a hidden...

    Storage Compartment Door

    I would be great if the opening for the storage door was about 6 inches smaller lengthwise. This way the entrance door, when it is latched open would not be in the way of the storage compartment door when it needs to be opened. Thanks, Harvey

    More kitchen pantry storage

    The 2900MK kitchen pantry cabinet in the newer models have two drawers instead of shelves in the lower cabinet. These are handy, but they are not very efficient. The drawers are 16" long and the cabinet is 24" deep. I looked at the interior of the cabinet and decided that if the drawers were as...

    Spirit Storage shelf
