    We have a 2012 Allegro Open Road which has been mostly very reliable - but we had an unusual time of 3 breakdowns in a month in November. Track Bar, King Pins etc - fun and games! We just shared the first part of a 2 part series in a blog post and YouTube...  more

      xctraveler No reservations needed or taken, 1st come 1st served. After you show you get on the list, they will give you an approximate time and you have a specific time (2 days ?) to get back when they call. Many go hang out nearby while waiting. No really near comm...  more

    Anyone having issues with the HWH leveling system? We have a 2016 32SA Open Road and nearly every campsite, no matter how level, results in "excessive slope". We then have to get out two levels and manually level the coach by moving it around ...  more

      Ulla & Josh I remember someone mentioning that sometimes the leveling jacks need calibrating. I think it was " RV LOVE" the bloggers who are also members of RVillage talked about it. Maybe they have some info on that. Why not contact.

      4Travelers My manual says the level should be about 1 inch below the top with the jacks retracted. It doesn't give any information for when the jacks are down. Hide 1 Reply
    • Jane & Doc
      Eric and June You should only check your fluid level with the jacks retracted. Adding fluid when extended you risk overfilling your tank when you retract your jacks.

      I checked my fluid level when we purchased our mh 4 years ago and not since. No oil leaki...  more

    The home closing date is scheduled for Aug. 11th, we need some suggestions regarding cell phone data plans. We presently have AT&T and are satisfied with it. What are other fulltimers using?

      Buddy Odom If you are a member of FMCA they have partnered with Verizon for a unlimited data plan for like $49.95 a month. It sounds pretty good on the surface.

    Linda & George / Jersey Devils :
    We noticed after our last trip that there are a couple dinks in the front hood. We have the diamond shield on it. Is there anyway to repair these dinks? There are four of them and each is about an inch long.  We have a 2015 Phaeton.

      JBSPMS Yes and no, are the dings all in one area? Well there is a possibility that Diamond Shield can cut out and remove a section and then replace with a new piece of Diamond Shield. If they are spread out, just grin and bear it as long as you can. Not only is ...  more

      The Maynards - Terry & Joni I believe the newer coaches have lifetime warranty on Diamond shield

      Hank & Shirleen Linda & George. I think it is a best you live with it situation as JBSPMS has said. I had some on my 09 Phaeton and have two on my 17 already. They cannot just cut out a piece. It must be a whole area and the paint may be affected under it.

    I'm confused! When we bought our Phaeton, we was told to level RV then put out slides. We recently went to FMCA lectures and was told to level with air bags, then put levels down. Which is the proper way to level coach??

      Jim & Kathy N. 1) Dump the Air, this is automatic when you hit the level button, or you can do it separately.
      2) level the coach, IF you find tires off the ground, retract the jacks and either move a bit, or put a sufficient number of blocks under the tires to ke...  more

        Dave & Christi Jones Why do the tires need to be on solid footing?

        MattWTexas Leveling blocks or boards under your tires help with stability and reduce the weight of your coach on the levelers.

        Jim & Kathy N. Dave & Christie, you do not want to hang the axles on the airbags, also if it is the rear axle you have no brakes! We check the site fr level with LevelPro, then level, this way we already know about how much we might need. If we can't get close before le...  more

      Bent wheel On the 2016 open the cabinets on either side and unscrew panel facing tv. There are 2 or 3 screws on each side. That is all that is holding the tv. You need someone to hold tv or else
