We stayed a week in the Yosemite area, 3 days in Lake Tahoe and drove to Virginia City on our way back east. You can read the blog at http...

I have been using a product similar to 303 called ProtectAll on our 2002 RSB since 2005. I am from Florida and have the Born Free parked in front of the garage with no protection from the sun. We are traveling 4 to 5 months each year and I try to put the ProtectAll on every 3 to 4 month. It has a UV...

Thanks

I had that very same thing happen. I used a silicon spray with a long red tip and sprayed the area between the bottom plate and the swivel plate. I could barely move the chair and now it moves freely. The product I used is a silicone spray lubricant by Permatex.
I hope this helps.

It was diagnosed as a faulty frayed cable that ran from the roof unit to just above the refrigerator down to the thermostat. The technician stated that it was broken and fr...

I have a 2002 26 foot RSB E-450 and would like to replace the front console with the new console. Is that possible? We saw the console on the new 2008 model and liked it but not enough to buy a new rig. Thanks for your help.

We are on the road from Fl to Alaska and have been experiencing some high gas prices. Regular in Colorado is 85 octane. Can we safely use that octane in our 26 foot E-450? PS has anyone received that e-mail from the RV consumer group concerning formaldehyde levels in RV's. I would assume that Born F...
