With luck, here is the calendar cover that Ed mentions. Thanks to Ed for emailing it to me.

They are standard equipment. If you ever need new ones, there are several posts in this forum about where to buy them.

Our 2006 24RB did the same, as does our 2017 Spirit (renamed 24RB). I believe all rear bath models did it this way. I don’t know about rear side bed models or any others. Basically, Born Free tried to split the drains half-and-half. The RB models have the kitchen sink and shower go to the tank on th...

Dumb question: do you have the battery switch turned on? If you only have the Outback inverter/charger turned on, you will not get power to the lights or the DC input of the refrigerator (although you should have voltage to the 120 volt inverted outlets). It is also possible that you don’t have the ...

Dallas, our 2017 Spirit (a.k.a. 24 Rear Bath) drags frequently also. Perhaps a bit more than our 26RB did. We also notice that some intersections are worse than others (also the bottom of our driveway since getting it paved). We just go with the flow and take turns slowly. ‘Tis the way life is. And,...

Can you tell the brand of the windows? Your unit is quite old, but most Born Frees came with Hehr windows. You could try contacting them to see if your windows can have screens.

Try unplugging from shore power, then turn both the inverter and battery switches to the off position for a minute. Then try plugging in to shore power, turn on the battery switch, then the inverter switch. This is in essence trying the equivalent of a Windows 3 finger salute! If all else fails, cal...

This morning we got an email from kws@kwslawpc.com, supposedly somebody named Ken W. Smith. It claimed to be a forward of a message from bfadmin-2@bornfreervclub.org. The plain text was something that looked legitimate, but the data was old, old, old. There was a zipped attachment. It was password p...

I can’t help with your sidewall problem, but here is an iPhone/iPad app I use to resize photos: Image Size by vsmedia.de https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/image-size/id670766542?mt=8 Pretty easy to use, and you should be able to then use your iPhone to access this site and upload any resized photos st...

Dallas’s idea would probably depend on how fast the transfer switch goes back to shore power. It would probably have to be instantaneous or else the air conditioner would stop and need the startup surge again. To make things worse, if the air conditioner stops suddenly, normally there is a time lag ...

At home I run our air conditioner on a 20 amp circuit. If you do try to run on a 15 amp circuit (we may have done this at a campground, but can’t remember for sure), get a good 30 to 20 amp adapter and put it on the end of your shore line. Do not use a 20 amp extension cord. If you must use a 20 amp...

Funny how stuff like that happens. As for rags in unusual spots, one time my oil company had trouble filling my tank. The telltale whistle came on almost immediately. They sent out a tech who applied vacuum to the fill pipe. Out popped a rag that must have been there for several years, as we had ret...
