Hello all... My POOSSLQ and I are new owners of a Heartland BigHorn 3585RL - We bought it from LazyDays in FL in 3/2011, stored it until 7/08, then left for our "figure-8" trip around the US. I had to pry my fingers off the steering wheel of our 2007 F350/ Dually/6L Diesel/etc, for the first 1000 miles (or so), and dreaded having to put it in reverse... But I am pleased to report that on our last loop of the figure-8 (now headed back to FL from Iowa), I am finally comfortable pulling this 38' behemoth!
Incidentally, POOSLQ means "Person Of Opposite Sex Sharing Living Quarters" - it seemed silly to refer to each other as boyfriend/girlfriend or friend ...
We love our BigHorn, and have had only minor problems with it -so we are pleased to see this forum where we can commiserate with others.
My problems to date:
Continuously blow 20 amp 12V fuse for lights over drivers side K/LR slide;
Lights over sofa stopped working ( fuse is OK);
Fresh water leak apparently under linoleum in BR, just started - after 7500
mile trip - can't find source - leaks into basement through scewhole
holding heater vent - annoyance, not catastrophic (yet...)
I'll keep searching the threads looking for solutions, then take it back to LazyDays when we get back to FL in a week or so.
(pretty long-winded for my first post - I'll try to get better at this!)
