Forum Rules Statement

Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum. Registration to this forum is free!

PLEASE NOTE: This forum is not for everyone and it is not the Heartland RVs, LLC 'Complaint Department' either. We do insist that you abide by the rules and policies detailed below. We apologize for this but there's no gentle way to say it. If by chance, you came here to bash Heartland RVs, LLC, Heartland products or if you have no plans to be anything other than constructively helpful to other forum members, then this forum is not the one you are looking for. In these cases, please PM the Admin to request your membership be canceled. Thank you for your understanding. :)

IMPORTANT FINAL STEP OF REGISTRATION PROCESS: You will receive an email in your inbox. You MUST follow the link in that email before you can post on these forums. Until you do that, you will be told that you do not have permission to post. If you do not receive that email, please check your SPAM folder for it.
