We have the same problem. Ours does not have a lock on it so that's no help.

My ugly but cheap and functional temporary fix is a strip of blue tape over the handle. Works for the 3-4 days in between tank dumps.

Thanks! We don't have an RSB but I need something similar for the sleeping pad we put on the sofa bed. This looks perfect!

As a heads up for everyone, now that fiberglass replacement parts are no longer available from the factory, body repairs can be very expensive. We had a driver's side rear outside tire tread separation on our 2013 26' Mobility while driving at freeway speeds and the separated tread caused a lot of b...

The last few trips out, the latch on the sewer dump door (rear driver side) on our 2013 26' Mobility has worked loose while driving and the door opens up. The first few times I just stopped at the first safe place and closed it, only to have it happen again 30-60 minutes later. I've looked at the la...

Ours was $945 this year with Progressive for a 2013 26' Mobility.

Have you checked the fuse? I'm not familiar with your model but the 2012 Ford E-450 owner's manual has a fuse chart near the back that has been very helpful to us (for some reason, our power driver's seat has blown out its fuse multiple times). If it's intermittent, it probably isn't blown, but it c...

The female end is 36" and the male 60". Hope this is useful.

We have two sets of seatbelts for the Flexsteel couch in our 2013 BF. We're headed out next week so I'll measure them next Monday and post the results.

We have a Panasonic (factory original) in our 2013 and the screen is removable. If yours is similar, you might try popping the screen out and reseating it.

We had the factory add 2 seatbelts to the jackknife sofa in our 2013 model. As described above, the bolts go through the floor (which in our case is mostly above the generator/battery bay. They stay on the floor (storage compartment area) when not in use. The only trick we've found is to make sure a...

We have the AutoMotion shades on our 2013 coach (although with individual switches at each window) and I would concur that a manual shade would be preferable. The one on the rear window stopped working about a year after we got the coach. Kim thought it was a bad switch so he sent a few replacements...

Ralph & Judy, Somewhat off-topic, but if your wife's mobility issue is the only reason you are considering giving up RVing, you should know that BF makes Mobility RVs. Ours is a 2013, 26', and it's the only way Matt can travel at all now. He was using an electric scooter when we started, but now...

Thanks for the starter ladder tip - somehow I never knew they existed! I found the antenna on Amazon so I'll order one and get it installed. The incident happened when I went to an auto upholstery place that is re-upholstering the sofa bed so that it lies flatter to make it more usable for Matt. Hop...

I was driving our coach through a parking lot in a light-industrial park and didn't notice a low hanging cable. Yup, you guessed it, it sheared off the Jack antenna. Someone nicely climbed up on top of the coach for me to retrieve it (I'm too short to reach the bottom step of the ladder!). There's b...
