  • Can someone post up the itinerary?  Never received it.  
  • I've done some inquiring with the factory the last two days as I reported this problem and also in an attempt to ferret out the problem and resolve it.   So with that said I will add the following... * The factory does drill holes in the fresh wat…
  • Congratulations Verna and know you will be much happier in the 400!   One request here....  I want to see a photo of the inside "before" and "after" you load her up!   
  • Stay strong Eric, thoughts and prayers are with you!  It's great that you are honoring her wishes and am sure she is smiling down from above!  
  • I agree, these episodes although less than desirable are learning adventures and do make people stronger.  I've traveled well over 50K miles and more pulling teardrops across the US, on remote/deserted backroads areas and have had GPS directions tak…
  • I can get my FW tank to 100%...  Many folks think that the tank is full when the tank is in effect, "burping" as we call it.  Water blows back out as air is escaping, etc.  The key here is to let the tank settle down, continue adding water in and do…
  • Tink said: @Michigan_Mike this shouldn't happen though, right? No, if you look beneath the trailer the cowling over the vent points to the rear of the trailer.  Water really cannot enter it while driving in rain so that isn't the issue.…
  • Tink said: 2017 [email protected] max s @Michigan_Mike It was just enough water that the items we pulled out were wet underneath. We also discovered a wet area under the back bench. This was not discovered for over a week after the wet under the refrigerator…
  • Tink said: We recently drove a few hours in a rain storm.  I later discovered that the floor under the refrigerator was wet. I assume road water got in through the floor vent.???? How much water accumulated there?  I don't think it is r…
  • Welcome aboard Mike!   This is a great forum, great group of knowledgeable owners and a repository of info is available/accessible via the search function above.   Enjoy your trailer and happy trails!  
  • True...  So am curious how others out there with the 400's are using the inverter and if anyone uses the microwave oven while boondocking and what other modifications or add-ones you have employed and like over others on the trailer?  
  • jkjenn said: Michigan_Mike said: I know that many of you have collaborated with the factory on custom add-ons for your new trailers.  I'd be very interested in hearing what modifications you have added. I'm also curious as to how you …
  • Mouseketab said: You may be out of luck visiting the factory July 4th week. If I remember correctly, they shut down that week. I think you are correct here as they normally shut down for a week.  There are still some great spots to visit…
  • Hey Dale,  what are you doing in your spare time at the rally?  I'll buy you a beer as you might need it!  
  • Dutch Valley Inn, just west of the factory and on the south side of Route 39.  Great food and a place I make it a point to stop in on every trip to the factory!   http://www.visitamishcountry.com/business/409/dutch-valley-restaurant-bakery
  • When I travel I always keep an eye to the sky and to my iphone, etc. in tracking approaching weather systems and for planning out routes in a manner to stay safe and out of harms way as best I can.   I entered Colorado on a trip back in 1976 after …
  • There is a ton of information on brake controllers here on the forum.  Use the search function above and it will bring in a wealth of information.   There is a great wireless brake controller out there that you can mount to the trailer frame and is …
  • Wish we could reroute some of the moisture received here in Michigan to the western slope!  
  • Thanks for taking the time to share your photo and details of this project as no doubt it will help others down the road.  Well done!  
  • Just reading this one as I cut the cord on the lake house last fall and just now got hooked back up via a new provider and NOT Charter....   So with that said,  I've always noted in the past that written text is very powerful and oft times it can…
  • I agree with RK...  Look at all the invasive species and insects that have devastated our Great Lakes basin and throughout the US.  I believe that some of these issues are not discussed adequately via the news media and eventually awareness is incre…
  • What Verna said....  If you have a CC permit in the US you most likely can expect a lengthy delay as hand guns are illegal in Canada and they will treat you in a less than favorable manner.   They searched my trailer, pulled things out and took a do…
  • Didn't someone do some experimenting with the Norcold by increasing the wire size and wiring it directly to the battery?  I tried running the Norcold in transit in my Silverado and it drew the battery down below 50% but it recovered quickly once I s…
  • I installed a dimmable LED light in the trailer I have in AZ. i know that when I turn the trailer on/off battery switch on it turns the light on in the bathroom.   Definitely a parasitic drain but could be easily remedied with something similar.   …
  • Thanks for sharing Verna and a deep-hearted "Thank You!" to all of my friends here on the forum for your compassionate, thoughtful and caring comments at this sad time.  My mother would have been humbled by all of your sweet, comforting and generous…
  • elbereth said: After we got back, I looked and we have the Interstate HD24-DP which I believe only has 42Ah - so I’m also realizing a battery upgrade of some sort is in our future.  Keep in mind here too that although your battery is ra…
  • I use a Resmed in my 2015 [email protected]  There are various ways to accomplish things and I have a small 300 watt pure sine wave inverter that I use when boondocking or when I stay in Arizona for the winter.  I avoid using the humidifier and am fine without i…
  • I'd change out the digital thermostat control panel as I've seen them go bad and replaced one myself. But agree with the Alde tech as it is one of the three that's defective and since the circuit board was replaced and the problem reoccurred I'd be …
