A related question to my previous post. If we are plugged into 20 amp power, can we leave the refrigerator on for short periods while in storage, say 2 weeks or so. Thanks!

Our 2015 Splendor inverter did not work well while plugged into less than 30 amps and Firefly confirmed that a 30 amp power source was required for this inverter so we had the same installed at our house in MI. Are you saying that plugging into a 20 amp power source will charge the house batteries w...

We have had no problems in the last 2 years but we keep it oiled. Hope we did not just jinx it!

Same trailer, different park, says Kaycie Musgrave. In Cincinnati tonight, people who were in the same park in Clinton, TN last night on the trek north, wanted to know about our Born Free. We are downsizing at age 75, but agree with Dean, we will keep this coach as long as we can drive and travel. I...

Bad eyes, should be 2015, obviously. Sigh.

Hi all. We are on our way to northern Michigan from sunny Florida. Along the way, we continue to have inquiries about our 2105 Royal Splendor, Miss Kitty, and even people taking pictures of her! They all like her looks, her super Diesel engine and size and want to know where to buy or see one. Sadly...

Thanks, Monti! We found the manual and it confirms your advice. The battery drain is important to know but we have shore power so we will turn the tank heaters on tonight. 22 degrees is too dang cold.

We are headed north in our 2015 coach that has tank heaters. Ignoring the obvious question of why are you doing that, we are currently in a location where the temps will go below freezing tonight. Does anyone have experience with the tank and valve heaters that are on the newer coaches? Like when do...

Newer coaches built on the Ford 550 diesel chassis have the high ceiling and wider body.

Alan, we have a 2014 HWH leveling system on our Royal Splendor and it failed last winter. We had it repaired in FL last March and has been working fine but can you describe where the unit is with the lug nut to release the hydraulic fluid? Our problem was a little different, I think, as the motor ju...

I am our resident non tech techie and know only what I have read and can understand. Our air conditioners draw 10 to 15 amps, depending on the cycle of the air conditioner - initial cooling draws the most. With the phantom loads in the coach, I think you are looking at a problem with only 15 amps, a...

Chris, we have actually found this feature to be very useful in places where we do not have tv reception, especially our driveway while packing for a trip or cleaning the coach.
We are sort of news and sports junkies and with Sirius radio can listen to most of what we might have watched.

Roger, we totally agree, especially with respect to the older model Born Free coaches. Our 2004 RSB was practically trouble free. The newer coaches have many “improvements” which lead to more repairs. The repair places we have visited over the last 2 years confirm that there are more problems on the...
