I had two 6V batteries (Interstate, from Costco) installed 4 years ago. The tech took the sliding tray totally out, put the new batteries in the back of the compartment , with a bracket screwed in to hold them in place. Then I bought a Pro-Fill system to fill the battery water since there's no acces...

I have the same situation. I want to put my 2008 24RB up for sale soon and have been trying to work out a fair value, looking at the few comparable BFs for sale on the forum or nationally. When my coach was new, I ordered various options that are now considered standard on BF and other RVs (generato...

Jill- My first Born Free was a 2005 RSB 26' Casual Elegance, V-10 which I bought used when it was only a year old (owner had health problems). I flew from CO to AZ to drive and inspect it at a dealer's, so I can relate to your search. The BF factory was very helpful with any questions or parts that ...

FYI: there will be a big Rally -put on by the Good Sam/Camping World/Woodall's conglomerate- in Phoenix March 19-22, 2015 at the Raceway. Same huge,dusty site they used in 2012 but these are always popular,great events with many vendors and big -name entertainment. New Born Frees were on display tha...

I'm hoping the Born Free folks involved in the Tucson Feb. Rally will post some details soon. The cost is $160.47 but that only includes a 2 night stay at Lazy Days, according to the park. So I'm curious about the planned events and meals. I used to stop at this park when it was "Beaudry's" and it's...

Guess it depends on what year the model is. Mine has one there ; 2008 24RB. Gets used the most too.

I can tell you about my experience with all this. Another RVer told me in 2006 about Steer Safe,which has a shop in Deming,NM. I had one easily installed there on my first Born Free, and then again on my next one. It seemed to be a good safety feature and not expensive. Then I heard a RV suspension ...

Also on my way to The Rally . These are really well-done events (my 5th) , with seminars, many new RVs on display , vendors with all sorts of RV must-haves , plus great entertainment. Bill Cosby and Martina McBride are headliners at this Rally. The Affinity co. (Good Sam, Camping World,etc.) is doin...

Yes, that's what I was referring to by "the tv settings for cable are fine". All the normal and obvious things that we do for cable tv look okay, which is why I'm looking for the not so obvious, like behind the walls or whatever. Will be driving again tomorrow and will try the process again with the...

Hi folks. My cable tv set-up was working fine this week, then after an all-day drive in very windy, sometimes bumpy conditions, there was no cable signal. The RV park manager tested the cable box with a small portable tv and my own cable wire- both are fine. So the problem is inside the Born Free. T...

Hi- I've stayed at the RV park in Naco several times; was just there in April. It's a dusty, basic place across the street from a golf course. It's close to Bisbee (great town), has cheap Passport America rates in the off-season, staff is friendly, and is an easy walk across the border to Naco, Mexi...

Hi- I have a dinette in my 2008 24RB. The seats are covered in microfiber ($) , with a storage drawer under each booth. I really like it, more than the 2 chairs and little pull-up table I had in my previous RSB. The dinette table has more room for a laptop and work materials, and 4 cozy people can s...

I've been on the road from Boulder to Bend ( Monday), then will hit Redmond this week for the big annual Rally that Good Sam, Camping World,etc. put on (next year they're going to do 3 regional events). Have seen several Born Frees along the way and wondered if any of you will be at The Rally. I'm d...

This is a very late update on my big battery project. I did switch from 12V to 6V when my original 12s were dying, and not holding a charge for dry camping. I bought 2 6V golf cart batteries from Costco and had them installed, along with the PD multi stage charger, by a skilled RV tech who specializ...

Thanks for your replies. I saw the photos of the T-105s last year by B & B, and that's what I'm counting on. It's the same newer Glide tray, so now it probably comes down to my battery compartment size. You both have older BFs, and my 2008 is on the new mold they came out with in Fall 2007, whic...
