      Rick & Lil Not sure where you live or where the 5er is but, whether it's at a dealer or private party, use your nose. If the trailer is closed up and you smell "dampness or mustyness" when you walk in, walk away. That may be a sign of water intrusion. Look down the ...  more

      Deborah Thompson You can use the Search Members feature to find other members with a Wildcat. I did a search and it looks like there are 23 other RVillagers who own a Wildcat. You can add them as a friend! Here's a link:  https://tinyurl.com/yd3of2xm

    Hi we're looking at buying a cover for our 5th wheel. Any recommendations? We're in California so it's mostly the sun we're concerned about. How long do they last? Thank you!

    Not sure where to post this one so it’ll go here and in some other places. We have a 2005 Forest River Georgetown XL. The dashboard AC system stopped working - got up to pull out and it didn’t come on. Nor did the fan - the vent setting works and we can...  more

      Richard Lang Just in case anyone who read the original post is interested - the problem is finally fixed! I used the “justanswer.com” website; they hooked me up with a mechanic and we traded messages. He showed me a picture of the blower motor - and from there I foun...  more

      Richard Lang Did you buy from Forest River directly or from a dealer? Go to the ones who sold it to you.

        Elizabeth Wilkerson That is where I'm at I did buy it from Lazydays in Seffner but the point that I was trying to say was I went up there to Goshen Indiana and they said they will fix two things free while you're there at the ( FMCA Rally) manufacturer and then the guy from ...  more

        Richard Lang I see. Did you capture name and number of that guy? Even if you didn’t you should be able to Google FR and find the phone for the appropriate division (clsss A, C, etc.) and then call.
      • Elizabeth Wilkerson
        Elizabeth Wilkerson Thank you for that I will see if I can find the number and call up there but it was one of the head managers that came to my coach, he really did not do anything he just let it run for a few minutes and said there's nothing wrong with it thank you for responding

      F.R.O.G. Elizabeth, this is Bob Byrne from FROG.  I see from your rally registration that you have a Georgetown.  Please call (574) 206-7600 and ask for Bryan Knight.  He should have information about what was done / determined at the FROG (not FMCA...  more

    We went to the Pomona, California RV Show to "window shop". Ended up buying a new Rockwood 8335BSS travel trailer. Super roomy on the inside, front kitchen with a huge window on the nose, heated loveseats, a second couch for the fur baby, big electric/pro...  more

      PartTimeRV Don't you just hate when that happens. Good for you. Hope it brings miles of pleasure. If your baby is going to take over the couch you will have to call it fur-niture.

      R 'n R / Rene' & Ron After the purchase we went to Arizona and now we're on our way back to our home spot in northern California. Our neighbors will surely be surprised when we pull up...We love it! Our new home is so much more roomy :-)
