Reinerka,

The stove rattle is simple to fix: if the burners are rattling, lift off the top and either tighten and/or reposition the screws that hold the burner propane piping, or insert an oversized screw if the current screw won't tighten (because the factory stripped it, like ours). We also added little rubber feet from Home Depot that slide over the wrought iron grill feet that raises the grill a little higher to stop all rattling. You can also buy a 20" x 20" wooden cutting board with rubber underneath from Camping World for additional work space that makes the whole unit absolutely quiet. If we drove your unit at the trade show, the camera worked fine. Check the cable above the windshield that leads to the rearview mirror to see if it is loose, and make sure you turn it on every time you start the engine by pushing the second icon from the bottom. You can also adjust the brightness by using the next icon up. Also, have your partner stand behind the RV and tell you how far they are from the top and bottom of your image so that you know how close you can come for backing up and passing cars and trucks. Ours was set at 5' and 35', good for us as a compromise, otherwise I could climb the ladder and readjust.

Toscana is already aware of the camera issue as they discovered it during the delivery check. I let them deal with that issue.

I'll try to fix the stove during our next trip.

We are having a problem with our starting battery. We have to keep a trickle charge on it so we can ensure it will start. The unit is stored in a shed, out of the elements, with no electrical items on that could drain the battery. Also, had the same issue with the antenna, which Forest River told us they had no fix. Car Toys was able to install an exterior antenna, Forest River gave us the antenna, and paid us for the cost from Car Toys. The reception is still fuzzy and somewhat garbled but it makes for more converstion between us. Other than this, we love the unit! Sure beats our old trailer................

kabowings,

a couple of things to check on the starting battery. Make sure you have sombeody check the draw when everything is off. Maybe there is something connected that should not be (and draws current). There is always a slight draw (i.e. Radio to keep its memory). If you don't have access to a heavy duty 12V amp meter you might want to try disconnecting fuses to find which one is actually draining your battery.

If you've drained your starter battery a couple of times it is dead by now anyways. They certainly don't like to be completely drained at all.

Which antenna do you mean (Radio or TV)? We have no issues with ours on either the Radio or the TV.

Just got our backup camera installed and it provides a clean and nice picture now. The other issues were fixed as well so we're happy campers now.

Reiner:

Thank you for your response. We have taken the rig to the service shop to see if they can determine what the issue might be. As regards the antenna, it was for the radio and we assume the original antenna was in the cab-over portion of the rig. We now have an external antenna. Again, thanks for your response.................

What year model do you have - our radio antenna is right next (and slightly forward) to the TV antenna.......

We have the 2010 model. Forest River readily admitted there was no fix for this hence giving us the antenna and reimbursing us to have it installed by Car Toys. It has been fixed but don't know we are happy to have an external antenna. But, in the scheme of things we are happy to have a radio that works..............
