I did multiple searchs of this and other RV forums and find no discussions of delamination problems in Born Frees. The only thing found was a question regarding delamination in the entry door on a Born Free and the door was metal skinned as opposed to the fiberglass shell on the rest of the coach. A...

So to recap if I'm parked for several days and hooked to shore power it would be kinder to the house batteries to turn the master disconnect to off and hook up a battery tender to avoid over-charging and boiling the house batteries as could happen with the stock converter/charger. I've just added a ...

I'm assuming that it would be better for the house batteries to turn off the master disconnect, and charge with the Deltran rather than the charger/convertor when camping and connected to shore power for several days, correct?

if I turn the master disconnect beside the driver's seat to the off position can I connect the house batteries to a charger without harming anything. My concern is that the factory charger/converter is isolated from the batteries when the switch is off or does it matter. The plan is to attach a Delt...

As a followup on the furnace problem I was experiencing, I went out to the coach this morning after driving it around 500 miles yesterday. Nothing had been operating that should have discharged the house batteries and when I turned on the furnace it fired up properly. That would lead me to believe t...

Jim, last winter I was returning from Arizona and found myself in Silver City, New Mexico for the night. My wife hollered at me about a noise coming from the BF and after checking it out I discovered that one of the hard rubber valve stems on the rear duals had fractured and blown out while the coac...

Mike, I appreciate your thoughts on the subject. We returned home this afternoon and I have access to my shop. I will try to duplicate the problem and take some voltage readings. Hopefully the cause is simply low voltage and some steps can be taken to reduce the load on the batteries when use of the...

This might not be your problem but it happened to us. Furnace fan ran but it would not light. Mobile RV tech pulled out the furnace from inside the coach. There were two tiny gnats that were inside the burner tube. This prevented propane from flowing and igniting. Ever since then I have placed blue...

Enjoying the cool weather in the Rockies but suddenly we have a problem. I turn on the furnace, as usual, and the purge fans start running but the burner doesn't light. Repeated the operation several times without success. Remembered that the last time I used the furnace the generator was running so...

Woodie, why not replace it with a digital hour meter, such as this:

Wouldn't take many clicks to get the job done nowadays! Thanks

Humm, may consider imbibing a shot of your favorite libation at each click until you "forget" about the issue :>)

Larry I have several Hot Rod buddies that have been quite pleased with Dyna-mat. There is also a product called Lizard-Skin that can be sprayed on virtually any surface and has the same effect. One of the advantages of Lizard Skin is that it can be sprayed inside doors and body panels that might be ...

Looks like a great idea, did you cover the grill in the door covering the generator? Dynamat gets a lot of use from the hot rod crowd, really helps with noise and heat transfer For TEMPERATURE control & NOISE control (won’t help with regard to clicking of the hour counter BUT does wonders for ...

I always sleep with a fan running for white noise so sleeping with the generator running is do-able but the clicking makes me nuts. Seems like it would have been just as easy to put the meter on the generator where it wouldn't matter if it played the trumpet. If I'm in the coach and can't figure out...

Well Sam, I guess this is the second best news I could get, if there's not a fix at least it's comforting to know I'm not suffering alone.
