What is the procedure to remove the swivel captain's chair from a late model Born Free? I would like to remove the chair behind the passenger seat. I can't remove the base since some of the bolts under the chassis are hidden. I see a single bolt in the center of the base on the top. Is this the one ...

Agree. Had a similar problem a few years ago when I backed into a tree stump. Took it to a body shop that restored corvettes. Reasonable price and looked like new when finished. Cost was less than $400.

We had a 26' that had 2 incline beds. One instead of the side bed with room for a night stand next to it. The other replaced the couch. I thought these were more comfortable and made the rear of the rv more open. Just a thought.

I had a similar problem. Finally realized that the rear view camera was not always turning off when I shifted from reverse to park. Didn't notice it at night when everything behind the rv was dark. Since then I have had the camera power wired to the ignition so it is not on when the ignition is off....

So far we have been happy with the handling. We did get it aligned when we first got the RV. Also had it weighed at all four corners and keep a close watch on the tire air pressures. Try to balance the load as best as possible however all the rv's I've had from Born Free have all been heavy in the b...

We have a 32' Born Free on a Kodiak chassis. Ours is a 2009 model and it has an extension to drain the water tank which was put on by Born Free when new. It comes out just behind the driver's door so no need to crawl under the RV. It's a very simple system that any mechanic could install. All we do ...

Thanks for the replies. Good luck Matthew with your new RV. I highly recommend getting it weighed at all four corners. Ours and our previous Born Free were both much heavier on the driver's side in the rear even with the water tank only 1/3 full. Plenty of capacity for heavy items on the passenger s...

Spoke to Kim at Born Free. He thought it was residual of a round sticker that they put on when they mark an area that needs additional sanding etc. I tried to wipe the area with an alcohol swab and it is looking better . May just be left over glue. Will keep working it. In regards to the Kodiak, so ...

Have a new ( May 2009 ) 32' foot on Kodiak chassis. Just noticed this on the front of the overhead. Its a perfect circle about 1" diameter. Feels rough and minimally depressed. Never noticed it before but may have missed it. See attachment. It's in the center front.

Thanks

I had Born Free install AGM batteries on our coach when it was manufactured. I believe they are the 12 volt version made by interstate. I'm very happy with them They hold their charge much longer than the others and you do not need to worry about cells going dry. Well worth the extra expense. Tony

Does anyone know the size of the shower in the president on the kodiak chassis? On Born Free's web site it looks the same size or possibly smaller than on the 27' rsb

Thanks,

Tony

Was in Florida at Disney last week. When we went to use the shower the shower head where it attaches to the hose was cracked in three pkaces and not usable. Since we were in Florida I was able to get in touch with Jerry even though it was on a weekend. By Tuesday morning he had a new shower head and...

Virgil, I did check the air pressure and noted that the driver side air bag was 8 lbs psi less than the passenger side. In the initial post I said that the driver front weight was "more than the passenger side. I meant to say that it was less that the passenger side weight by several 100 pounds. Don...

We have a 2008 28' RSB with an incline bed in the rear instead of the standard bed. I have had the RV weighed twice months apart and each time the driver side rear weights were 4950 lbs. and the passenger side rear was 4450 lbs. The driver side front was 1600 lbs. and the passenger side front was 21...

Ron, We have a 24' with the dinette and the incline twin bed. The twin bed is very comfortable. However I find the dinette very uncomfortable for sleeping. It is nice as a dinette. This is an individual thing but I have a lot of difficulty sleeping on the converted dinette. I have tried a foam toppe...
