My favorite fire starter is to use the old oil and grease soaked rags from my shop. I keep them in a METAL bucket, and when we go camping, set them aside for use. Usually only takes one rag to get...

Bathroom door

Yes, I have changed our door to a hinged one on our 3810MS. After one year, the bearings in the overhead trolley gave out, letting the door drop. The trolley is the only thing holding the door up. ...

New rig

I'm assuming by new you mean 2018, or is it a 2019 now? We bought the 3810 new in 2017. Love that front window, makes a huge difference. Does the "new" one still have the fireplace in the bedroom?...

Heat pump

You may or may not have a problem. The heat pumps/AC systems on these RV's use a small coil, compared to a residential unit. It's basically the same coil they use for strictly cooling units on...

They made a lot of changes in later years on the trucks. We had a 2008 GMC 3500, with 9900 pounds GVWR. Towed our 3400 with no problem, and under the weight limit. Then we got the 3725. Tongue...
