Hi, Vet: We had huge problems with all 3 slides on our HC costing thousands of dollars to repair. IMHO, the so-called “cables”, pulleys, motors and gearboxes are just too light and flimsy to last,...

Congrats on your badass truck. If you can’t tow it with that beast, it must be a house. We got our new F350 DRW a couple of weeks ago and can’t wait to see how she tows. The salesman said that, if...

Seriously, not a bad idea. Also, you might want to have a cable kit or two on hand if you’re going to be off grid at all. Two of our cables got mis-aligned and ended up getting frayed into a mess...

Great! Did they check the welds on all of the studs or just the ones next to the slide outs? Since we had two studs without welds, I’m very doubtful about the rest of ours. Glad you got yours...

Great stuff! Thanks, everyone. I'm left with two questions: What is an ARC device and where exactly should the fan be installed?

Dometic fridge temp bounces

Hello, group. The temperature of our Dometic RV type (non-residential) fridge sometimes shoots up from the mid-30's to the upper 40's and mid 50's for no apparent reason. We've noticed this when...

Timandpeggy: That's interesting. Yours is the same as Baybum's while my inactive guage shows full. Luck of the draw, I guess.

Thanks, Webe, but I'm still confused about how the "extra" guage is getting power. As I mentioned, it's lit up showing "full". If I had nothing else to do, I guess I could try to trace the wire...

Yes, we have one bathroom. Both black tank gauges seem to work, so I'm still wondering about the one that reads "full". Thanks.

How many black tanks?

On our 2016 HC model 352RL, the tank gauge shows two black tanks - one empty and one full, BUT, we've only found one black tank valve handle. We just now emptied all the tanks and, yet, the "extra"...

Our 2016 352RL came without a remote. The only "problem" I see is that I can't see what the rear jacks are doing while I'm pushing the buttons. I'm sure I can live with that, though.

I thought that might be the case. Thanks for complaining. That valve does make it a little harder to get a face full of water.

Hey, dieselguy:

You were absolutely right. The drain was about 2' inboard of the tank vent at the rear of the unit. My mistake was to look mostly in the area around the plumbing compartment. ...

Thanks, dieselguy. I'll go look again with your information. I do know that the vent for the tank is at the very back, so the tank should be in that area as well.
