questions about the 378 xl

I am new here but have a few questions.

I have a terrible noise coming from the passenger side of coach while driving , sounds like a bad shock , anyone have this issue ?

when running the front furnace , cannot get the rear furnace to blow hot air , also when using either furnace the flame on the stove is very low .

The rv is a 2015 Georgetown 378 xl Black Diamond . thanks for your input.

We have the 2014 Georgetown XL378, we haven't had any of the problems that you have.
You might want to get a front end alignment done.
Both of my furnaces work just fine, together or separate and it doesn't effect the stove at all.
I hope someone else can help you, good luck get it all worked out.

You may want to check the propane regulator at the propane tank. If it has a leak in it like mine did it will affect the pressure and that may be why your furnace is not working properly. I had to replace mine a couple of weeks ago it sprung a leak, took me a couple of weeks to figure it out though, started with a slow leak. Then on one weekend i lost half a tank of propane, guess the hole got bigger and poof it was gone. Just glad nobody threw a cigarette under the propane tank when it was leaking! There are threads on this topic here.

Luckily for you it is still under warranty
As for the noise it could be the bushing on the sway bar, bushing on the shock or even a bushing on the springs though I am not a mechanic. As for the furnace my first guess would be the regulator
For the winter time we use a couple of ceramic heaters to supplement the furnaces because the furnaces use a lot of gas when the temps get low.
Post what you find out is a good idea.

We had a loud rattle coming from underneath our 378. Turned out to be the front hydraulic ram on the right slide. Was not tight when slide was retracted. After adjustment, rattle disappeared. Sounded like front suspension.
