Based on my experience trying both methods of recharge while dry camping, the V10 engine appears to be much more costly. It recharges at a high rate, but not so much higher than the Progressive Dynamics converter/charger. My generator consumes only about 1/2 gallon per hour charging while carrying o...

It has been for me. I've towed our Honda CR-V more than 15,000 miles with no additional protection and no damage.

We tow a 2005, all-wheel drive, Honda CR-V with a Blue OX base plate, Blue OX Aladdin tow bar and a Toad-Stop brake system. It has worked well for us. It's our primary transportation at home, but has been towed more miles than driven - about 16,000 miles. We have been very pleased with the vehicle.

It may take a mild rubbing compound to remove the stain if it's in the surface of the fiberglass, but for removing pine tree drippings, I use turpentine. It's the natural solvent for pine sap.

Bill, we were unhappy with the soft foam in our 2004 RB as we experienced the same problem you expressed. We called Lisa Bauer at Flexsteel and made an appointment to have the foam replaced. She was wonderful to deal with and agreed to replace it at no charge although Flexsteel had no fault in the c...

Here are the other 2 pictures of the battery installation. Sorry that the flash didn't properly illuminate the negative cable connection at the shunt, but the existing cables connect to one end of the shunt and the welding cable from the negative battery post connects to the other end. The two 6 vol...

Bill, Sorry to be so late responding, but have been dealing with some issues that carried a higher priority. I'm posting pictures as requested although they are not too good. It's difficult to view the connections points without removing the batteries. The welding cable lead to the positive post is ...

With regard to the cabling when changing a battery installation, here is a description of the procedure used when replacing our 12 volt coach batteries with two Trojan T-105, 6 volt batteries. I was concerned that the cables were not flexible enough for the frequent moving associated with checking t...

Larry, we just went through the same thing and had it repaired during a recent visit to the factory in Humboldt. I had one of our two sofas replaced with a single bed on that same side, and found stain and wetness as you described. The leak was in the outside access door gasket. The gasket was repla...

We had twin foldout sofas with ultra-leather installed when we ordered our coach, and used it that way for over three years. However, it became increasingly annoying to have no aisle between them when the sofas were extended for sleeping. As a result, we scheduled replacement of the passenger side s...

Two years ago when the FMCA convention was held in Perry, Ed and Carol Freye suggested that any Born Free owners attending might want to park together. We did this and had 6 or 8 coaches in the holding area for a sort of mini-rally. We had a lot of fun in spite of the rain toward the end. The conven...

Trisha, I don't know if this will help you find your leak, but we had a lot of water accumulate in our carpet on the driver side from under the sink. I found the source to be a small hole in the water filler hose (from filler outside into top of fresh water tank) caused by rubbing on a corner on the...

There is another product available that we bought for our twin sofa beds. See the web page below. Hacksacks are available in twin, full, queen & king size. We bought a pair of the full size which are 58" wide. Hacksacks are made of heavy cotton cover instead of the slick nylon used by Travasak a...

Rick & Linda, I think you are looking for the EasyCurtain link that Mel posted on 12/3/05. We bought it and are fairly pleased. It works pretty well, but is a little troublesome to put in place on the side windows. The side pieces are held in place by a flap that is fixed by raising the window a...
