Floyd. We tow a 2001 VW Cabrio behind our 2005 22' BFT. The 6.8L engine has no problem pulling the toad and it follows easily. There are some decisions in your gear selection however which are unique to the 22' BFT due to the center rear door. Depending upon your selection of a tow bar, you may or m...

Well, we have turned on our off/on many times while the motor is running. Glad I now know better. Anyone with any ideas on a good switch (with the diodes built-in) that I could switch out with. Richard Without researching the alternator model I can't tell you if you are susceptible to this problem ...

I suggest everyone read up on it's proper operation located somewhere in the Born Free Owners Manual. Most importantly, when not to turn the dial. Sam, my manual is not very specific other than instructing to turn the switch to 'off' for storage. Could you elaborate on 'when not to turn the dial'? ...

Here's another resource for those who are considering carrying a weapon in their RV or on their person. The dues are a bit pricey but they don't accept any advertising so I've found their opinions/reviews are a bit more unbiased than the NRA. They also issue a free newsletter with good info on thing...

I changed the lights in the storage spaces as a while back there was a post about a near fire when the light was left on for a long period and something was close to the lens and it partially melted. I can't find my notes as to which website I used to find the bulbs but I remember it wasn't very har...

I use an adjustable drop ball mount made by Master Lock. There's a link below but I bought mine locally as opposed the website shown. It fits the longer shank length on my 2005 BFT.

I experienced this problem and after changing most of my dill valves, I have come to the conclusion that all dill valves are not made to the same specifications. They are easy to adjust or change if you get the tool for unscrewing them and have an air compressor; if not have a tire shop do it. I rec...

I have no horse in this race but I did open the latest issue of FMCA Family Motor Coaching and saw a description of this product line.

Is there a surge protector made, that simply mounts in-line on the side of your coach, or at the power source box? Similarly to the water flow regulator that you put in-line when hooking up to city water? If so, would CW or PPL in Houston, Texas be a source for such a device? Yes Sam, there are sev...

I agree with Pete Robinson about the table. We use it a lot and we found it very versatile even with the wobble. After I modified it to remove the wobble it is a steady platform and has made our time in the coach much easier. It's been two seasons since I modified ours and it is still rock solid. I ...

We rally with an FMCA club of large brand X RV's. We have the smallest coach and the biggest dog....70 lb shepherd/shar pei mix and don't have any issues. We've crossed the country several times with kids and dogs. I'd rather take a dog on a long trip than a kid any day. My dogs never picked a fight...

WE have a 2005 BFT on a 2004 E-350 chassis. I plan on 10 mpg whether towing a car or not, over the mountains or on the flats. It might vary a couple of tenths from that, but not enough to worry about. The E-350 chassis only has a 37 gallon gas tank versus a 55 gallon tank for the E-450 so it is a bi...

Not sure what you mean by the booster box but my satellite input coax goes straight through the A/B switch to the receiver.

You can go straight to your satellite receiver. A satellite receiver puts a 12v signal on the coax in order to power the LNB in your antenna and I don't think that would go through the splitter. I used an A/B switch on mine and it works fine.
