Brookstone

We traded our motor home in Dec for a Brookstone 395rl. The other day my wife asked me what about the golf cart if we should ever decide to travel from the resort we are in? I know i have seen 5th wheels pulling small utility trailers and some states don't allow this set up. The rear frame is pretty large I beams so i will need to have a hitch installed by a professional. Thinking a 12' flat bed for the golf cart?

The learning curve from a MH to 5th wheel has had me at times. We have been full time for 4 years now.

Honestly, if I ever get a golf cart and am still pulling a fifth wheel - it's going on top of the truck cab by way of winch.

We also have a 395rl and really like it. Biggest issue I have with it is the 6 point auto level cuts out. I think that the trailer is to heavy for it. On pretty level sites it works ok but on site that are not level it shuts off fault codes and I end up manually leveling it.

I'll second wingedone. I've seen his setup and is pretty cool. Would work great for a golf cart.

We also have the 395RL. Do any of you that have it have an issue with the heater absolutely blasting a hurricane of hot air out of the floor vent? Seems like 80% of the air from the heater comes into that room. Will have to have some type of diverter in the line I'm thinking.

Went to Home Depot and got regular furnace vent for the floor. Shut it pretty much off and that helped a bunch.

Yeah. I did that too and the vent gets really really hot. We just ended up using electric heaters, which to be honest worked great and we're much more quiet.

It funny we have had four trailers now and always used electric heaters. But, we camped early spring right after we got the Brookstone and forgot to grow them in so we used the furnace...first night was no sleep with all the heat in the bedroom so went to homedepot and no heaters so I switched the vent covers.

I have a Chaparral 390 QSMB. The floor plan is very similar to your Brookstone. The furnace duct in the middle bedroom blasts like crazy. The duct on my trailer is on the wall instead of the floor though. The furnace is mounted behind the bunk room wall, under the bathroom and the vent is the closest to the furnace. I pulled the vent cover and used aluminum furnace tape to block off most of the vent. It works well. Because I have a wall duct, I couldn't find an adjustable cover like you can get for the floor ducts.

Is your wall duct the round one? If so I did find adjustable ones for it which I also put in the bathroom which was blasting hot air as well.

It is a round one. Please, pass along the details on adjustable ones. I have adjustable round ones in my ceiling for the a/c. I didn't know if they would work for the wall furnace ducts.

Thanks.

The round ones we have are 4" in size and we found dampened round vents at camping world and amazon. The part number says H810.
