38A Furnace

To all 38A owners,this is just a warning.During our run to Florida this week and the weather being what it is(cold even in KeyLargo)the kitchen drain that travels behind the fireplace started to leak.In removing the fireplace found that the furnace when installed by factory was placed on top of the flix hose used for drain,and in using the furnace for extended time melted the hose.Was a real pain in the a** to do a temp repair till it can be repaired by FR.If you can(only 4 screws hold it in place)remove fireplace or what ever is in that space and check where the hose is located.

As far as I can tell by looking at the Forest River Forums profiles the only Berk owners that listed their coach as 38A are:

Bud Ezekiel H
ccupton
Jim9091/oldkeywest91
nathantoensing
pipelineguy
priceless0612
RKNOLA (us)
Secfan90
tnbendr

maybe there are more out there, I don't know. Some people just list "Berkshire" under the make/model category so it is hard to tell which model they have. Hopefully the other 38A owners will see this thread and check the hose placement in their coach before finding out the hard way.

I bought my GTown there. Got a great deal, and haven't had any service issues to date.

Mrs Karen; How do you do a search by make/model category? I've been wanting to do that.

Terry Town was good for me. Service after at that time wasn't great for a DP. They are better now. My salesman was Bob Wells. Pretty good guy. Good price. I always thought they should have jumped in and helped me out with the front axel overweight issue. I talked to them and they weren't real interested.
