Sam – We have 22 ft BFT but our problem and fix may apply to you also. We had considerably more than a quart leak at the rear of the coach in a rain storm. Last year at the Homecoming in Humbolt I mentioned it to Tim (?) and he sent some people out to the campground and resealed the seam where the...

Jack ~ forgive me, I am a little thick, … what I get from your post is that you have mounted a PD converter into a WFCO case and that it was somewhat less involved that Bill Hemme’s conversion. I would be very grateful for any photos or instructions that you might send. My e-mail is GWillieB@kc....

Jack Lassen ~ I, too, would be interested in more information on your converter conversion and your problems with the WFCO noise. I have been thinking of going with the WFCO simply because it seemed to be an easier conversion than the PD. Did you give up on the WFCO and go with the PD? I would prefe...

Bill ~ I too have installed an additional sewer hose holder on my BFT. Camping World sells three sizes but only the shortest (26 in.) will fit behind the right bumper of the BFT because the trailer hitch gets in the way. It is necessary to make angle brackets to mount it similar to the ones BF used....

In answer to bcope01's question: I did not directly watch the installer enlarge the hole but I have just queried him on the phone and he said he used an air driven rotary tool (like a drill) with a small cylindrical grinder on it to enlarge the hole "about one quarter inch without going through to t...

I have just returned from having a Winegaard Sensar III batwing antenna installed on my 2004 Built for Two. It seems to work very well and is and improvement over the circa 1950’s rabbit ears Delta that was original equipment. Checking it out in my driveway I received all of the local VHF and UHF ...

Virgil ~ Thanks for your response. I think that there might be quite a few of us who would be interested in solving the spare tire dilemma as, for what I can tell, the bracket would fit all models of the Born Free - not just the BFT. However, I don't think you will get much positive response from Bo...

Virgil ~ That's a great solution you have come up with for the spare tire problem on the BFT ! I would certainly be interested in any plans or further pictures that you might be willing to share. Did you fabricate the mount yourself or have it done at a shop? Was it necessary to drill any holes in t...

I apologize ~~ I have no idea why my post appears three times. Sorry. Willie Wille, your triple posting most likely happened because you hit the SUMMIT button three times. This probably happened because you are on a slower phone line internet connection and you thought it was ignoring your SUMMIT co...

Roadtech ~ Your questions are exactly the same as mine, and the reason I held off buying a Built for Two for a year. Other qualities of the coach finally overcame my concerns and I bought a 2004. The generator is not a big problem for me although I have always had Onans in the past and knew of the p...

In my area ( Kansas City) there are some auto parts stores that will check the maintenance codes for free or a nominal charge of one dollar. They are not able to read all of the "propritary codes" that Ford keeps secret for only their dealers but they have been able to read the basic ones -- like "c...

Karl I, too, have strong evidence of water leakage from the refrigerator compartment - haven't actually cought it but have had a wet carpent in the area undeneath. While in storage I have covered the access door with plastic sheeting and that has helped but I have wondered what to do while traveling...

Can one you helpful electrical gurus answer a question for me? I know that when plugged into shore power that the battery charging rate for the house batteries is controlled by the converter and I think that it also is controlled by that converter when running the generator since they both are 115v ...
