We have a 2005 26' RSB with 24,000 miles on it. We have experienced absolutely no leaks of any kind except a small one under the sink when the hose to the water pump became loose. That was quickly repaired by tightening the clamp. I have nothing but good things to say about the 2005 coaches. Ours is...

We had the same problem and solved it by taking the coach to a RV repair facility where they did a thorough cleaning of the AC unit. That solved the problem.

We store ours under a metal awning with partial side protection. We also put on tire covers.

We had one installed in our previous Born Free. It turned out to be a real "pain in the a__." It would go off with changes in the weather and whenever the wind would shift the coach. The floor sensors were intermittant. In short, after about a year, we disabled it.

We've been members of Passport America for the past 3 years and I have to say that it has saved us a lot of money. Most of the parks that we've used have been very nice.

We had the same problem a few years ago. Kim sent me a set of new ones and I replaced them myself. (Very easy).

I installed it on my antenna. The installation was easy. Took less than a minute and no tools needed. I have to say the improvement in reception was fantastic. I picked up twice as many stations and they were all very clear. I would recommend it to everyone.

We have been members of Passport America for 4 years now and have found it to be a great help in saving money. The parks we have used have all been very good. We crosscheck the park ratings in our Trailer Life directory. We have never had a problem with any of the parks. Some do not give the discoun...

I replaced my TV with a Phillips 19". I posted all the information (with pictures) on this board last summer. You might want to look for it. The cabinet work was done by a local shop for less than $200.

I have a prius also and would love to tow it, but not at the expense of dragging a tow dolly around. A few Prius owners are using dollies, but I'm happier dragging my wife's Honda 4-wheels down.

We had to replace the fuel pump on our '93 26 ft. on a 350 chassis. It was located inside the fuel tank and they had to drop the tank to get at it. It was not too bad a job as I recall. It took a couple of hours. I was told that the fuel pumps failing are a recurring problems with the Ford trucks.

You might want to look at my post from last summer. (with pictures) I replaced my TV with a phillips TV and Phillips DVD player. It was a very straightforward job.

We had one on our last Born Free (26' RSB). It was very nice, but we found that we seldom used it. The attachments on the Born Free are snap fasteners. The canvas will curve along the side of the coach and there is a "skirt" that snaps along the bottom. If you are going to be staying at one spot for...

I put a cover on a car a few years ago and the result was badly scratched paint from the dirt that filters through the fabric. Also, it's a real mess when you try to remove a soaking wet cover after a rain. My advice is to forget the cover idea. You might be better off to get a "carport" awning to p...

I have to agree with the above comments. We had the Banks system and thr Trans Command installed on our 1992 26' RSB. The power and torque increase were great. No more downshifting for hills. No perceptible mileage gain. Our 2005 26' RSB has pleanty of power with the V-10. I wouldn't consider the Ba...
