Hello and welcome! Let me start by saying I think you have more experience that me in this area, I have never worked with fiberglass... but I will share my experience since I just removed my Delta about 2 weeks ago. I have a 2003 24RB. I used a product called Thiox Thickened Epoxy Adhesive, somethin...

Hey folks, We have a 2003 24RB. I noticed a new leak this week by the drivers feet. The carpet underneath the drivers floor mat was wet I pulled it up to dry and the pad underneath is really wet too. I think this carpet is normally glued down but the glue is all dried up from age. The under pad look...

Thanks for the link to the Whizzy Wheel link, some folks suggested similar tools to me. I removed our Delta antenna last week and I have removed a Sat Dish in the past, it is amazing the nice shiny look underneath, I figure it might take a while for the colors to blend and fade. I do tend to polish ...

Hey folks, I know there are some things on the web about this for normal RVs.. but I was wondering if anyone has ever removed any of your Born Free graphics? Some of the ones on our 2003 are looking kind of tired and I have some letters missing in a few places. I know here on the forum there are som...

Hey folks,

I have a 2003 - 24RB and it is time for tires.

The Michelin LTX M/S LT 225/75 R16 appear to not be as available anymore... alternative recommendations for other tires folks have purchased, used, and liked?

Yup, 60 pound pull could work... if that doesn't you could also consider finding a nice clean looking latch on the outside. Done right I bet you could make it look pretty nice. I know you will need to pad out the wall side to make some of the latchs flush but a little wood stained the same color mig...

Ah! I see, very different. Well what about some Cabinet Door Latch/RV Drawer Latches? My 2001 has these and I think the work pretty well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07T4GP3YZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 In fact, I like them better then the metal ones on my 2003 24RB ...

Hey Tom, I have fixed our pantry slide lock with a child safety catch lock similar to these: https://www.amazon.com/Dreambaby-Secure-Catches-Safety-Locks/dp/B016MPPDE4/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=safety+catches&qid=1580237998&sr=8-7 I usually find a box of them at Home Depot, Lowes, or Walmart. You ...

Hey Dave, Did you come through Shelburne in your Born Free? I saw one in town one Friday about a week ago :-) Sandy, The back splash wasn't an issue, but that square box that the plexiglass frame is attached too is just a blank box. It is held to the back by 2 long screws - and these screws go into ...

Thanks Bill, Great suggestions - I think I have seen one of these on my 2001. This looks like what you shared in your post: http://hytten.us/forumimages/Breaker.png I can't remember if the 2003 had one.. things are kind of tight behind the power box by the water tank under the sink. I think the ATS ...

Hey folks, I recognize that everyone has their own style about what they like and don't like. We recently bought a 2001 24RB with 42,000 miles but did not find the counter top color to be as warm as our 2003 24RB. We considered changing out the counter tops but that is a lot of work and expensive. I...

Update Hey folks - in the end I replaced the water pump in my 2001 24RB and everything works perfect. I own two Born Frees and I had a water pump issue with my 2003 24RB around the same time and I thought folks might find this helpful. The switch on the monitor was working - PUMP lite up.. but no po...

Hey folks, Looking for some advice about where to check next. We have a 2003 Born Free 24RB with a Generac generator. I have a new charge controller installed this spring and some batter monitors installed and I noticed when we started the generator last night I was getting no power - nothing to out...
