[quote="Judy Harris... The one thing that still intrigues us, however, is the 27' Bigfoot with slides and a basement, but we know we would be very disappointed compared to the BF. Happy with our BF, Judy Harris[/quote] We looked at a Bigfoot and were not happy with the quality of the interior trim a...

Steve, I'm sorry to hear of all the issues - it shouldn't happen. Kind of makes one wonder about QC? I've been fortunate regarding problems, pretty much general maintenace since 1999 (knock on wood). From what I can tell from other owners; our situation is unique. I attribute most of the problems t...

Well I guess it is time for an update on the status of our MH. After some discussion, BF Customer Service decided to have the MH returned to them for the various items that needed to be fixed. They picked it up on May 4 and we got it back May 31. All the items we noted seem to have been fixed. We ha...

We have a Coleman LP grill that fits in one of the compartments. I have an adapter to run it on either disposible cylinders or on our larger LP tank we take along. I am not crazy about the grill but it does cook fast but does have some hot spots and the legs on the unit are a bit narrow so one has t...

Congratulations on your new Born Free.

Good luck and happy camping.

I had Quadra Bigfoot hydrolic jacks installed. They are fully automatic or I can run them manually. The control panel is mounted in the headliner just above the center of the windshield. I have the 32 footer so the cab is the Chevy Kodiak C5500 so there is a lot more space up there. We had a local d...

I am not finding anything on a model 3600. Are you sure this is the correct model number?

Here is a link to the Guardian site.

Thanks George and Len, I received the Newsletter (our first) and it has a lot of information that is of interest to us. I am sorry if my comments were taken to be overly critical; my intent was only to state that, as new members, we felt we were "in the dark" on many of the club functions and basic ...

We are new to the club and new to RVing so my questions and comments may be from ignorance so please bear with me. From your note it appears that positions within the club are not nominations from the club at large but are self-nominations done directly to the current President. That seems a bit odd...

The Desert Skies RV Resort in Mesquite, NV is an expensive over-night option. The "resort" is mostly Park Models; either occupied on a full time basis or rented. There are some back in and pull through spaces for RVs but they are no more than pink gravel with a hose bib, power box and sewer drain. N...

We just stayed there for two nights. Very nice RV park but we had one major issue...construction noise starting at 5:30AM! There are two condo/apartment buildings going up right behind the park and the construction crew gets an early start and goes until about 3PM. Otherwise, we liked the site and t...

It allow you to input how long you want to drive in a day and when you want to start and stop for the day. You can input gas mileage and cost per gallon and it will...

Yes, if you get that split off successfully, and are able to draw the over the air HD signal let me know. I, too, am using an old Dish HD receiver (I don't remember...522 or some such or ???) and have a 720P TV. Since I went 1080P at home, I had to upgradw the receiver, dish and screen. But then, I...

In checking the manual, page 21, it describes the difference between DirecTV and Dish Network operations. Apparently, manualy switching is not an issue with the DirecTV system: Note: For DIRECTV® Subscribers: The satellite setting allows the user to select the satellite and service provider of cho...
