Just ain't about to lay claim (or have it attributed to me) to something I didn't do, and Lord knows I couldn't do.

welding? UH UH don't even wanna be close to anyone who CAN do that. I'll be more than happy to stand back and hold a cold soda for the guy that CAN.

I can't torque something to 160 lbs. NEWP. Ain't about to get up on the roof of Buffy either.

I know my limitations and I'm happy stayin' right here inside 'em.

Well, TBH we've not seen your 5er, but I KNOW you've done quite a few mods for ours!

awning poles and brackets X2 (Sneak mounted and installed)
ladder mount for satellite dish (Sneak designed and had base plate made for)
pin box mount for satellite dish (ditto)
sliding tray/rack for basement storage (that some ne'er do well threatened to abscond with)



Not to mention all the advice you've given us both. We are thankful!

SILLY Wabbit....I mean elbow to elbow while you're doing it!

I'm totally content to be a distant observer.

We have several "auto darkening" helmets so you can even watch it up close and personal.

If you and Sneak start that stuff I'll be happy to go inside with Ms. Frankie and cook somethin' up!

HERE'S MY 2 CENTS. 4 years ago while minding my own business while in Gilf Shores on vacation with my original 2003 Wildcat 5ver, someone came by our campsite and said XYZ dealership north of Foley has some deals on Bighorns that you cant pass up. Well me, the liberal spender and my DW, the once frugal, conservative(until we got into RVing) decided to go take a look. Found one we loved, but put it off until we got home to the dealership near us. We then purchased a 38ft Bighorn 5ver(3680 I think). Had several issues with it including 240v being sent thru the outlets which could never be resolved as well as 3 replacement RM1350 dometic fridges that never did work. Burnt up 2 convection/microwaves, tv, after market ice maker. Final straw was when we were in Grand Isle SP in Grand Isle LA(about 175 miles from home) and smoke began pouring out of bathroom pocket door as well as receptacles in living room. Shortened our trip and drove straight to dealership and demanded service, which was a joke. Heartland blamed it on inverter, invert co. blamed it on Heartland and Dometic. Long story shorty. We ended up in lafayette,LA and purchased our current Cedar Creek which has given us no problems. Do miss the storage and a few of the nice layout ideas, but have been pretty much pleased...except for the fact that I am still paying as part of my note, the upside portion of the Bighorn. IT WAS A DEFINITE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. We were actually forced to sign a document after the Bighorn came out of the shop for the last time before trading that we would not hold Bighorn/Heartland liable for any other damages or bodily harm. Signed it at trade-in. The rest is history. NOW! TOP THAT. Steve

But Steve, did you catch any crabs or fish while you were on the Island?
