A little problem, my frige will not freeze in electric mode, frige works just fine on LP but when I shut off the gas the frige will not freeze. I keep my camper plugged into 30amp all the time at home, one of my LP tanks ran out of gas to soon and thats what made me check the frige. I called CW and was told that the electric element was bad so I will take camper in tomorrow, brand new camper but I guess some things just happen. The light inside the frige works but frige will not get cold, freezer or bottom. Oh well take camper there and when FR says its okay I will take camper back and get it fixed

Man, I hope this is the last of your problems. I know you went through a lot with the Wildcat. BTW, when you switched the fridge over to electric did you remember to switch the AUTO/GAS mode back to AUTO?

So far as the exterior goes, we're going with the custom paint because the clear coat goes over the decals too. Look into the re-bond carpet pad.
Alan I have said this to you before, spend your money on the 6 pt. leveling system. I have seen how level you got your current tag along......

I have a on and off switch and a switch that is supoused to change from gas to electric, somehow it does not change to just electric. When I change the switch it does not go to just electric. The manual says the frige light will in electric just stay on. The switch is auto and LP, when in auto frige will find the best way but all it is finding is LP. Manual says you can cut off the LP light and just be in auto but my frige does not do that

Well that just sucks spock. I sure hope once the fridge problem is taken care of you have clear roads after that.

I took CC to CW and found out why frige would not work in electric, the frige was hooked up to the breaker on the fireplace. The fireplace breaker has to be on for the frige to work in electric.I guess Forest River ran out of places to put a breaker at. Forest River teaches me something new all the time. That was 18 bucks for CW to tell me that plus fuel. I found out when I brought camper that my Dish works thur the bedroom hookup out side. But I needed some help with the thermostat and everything is working and counting the days down for Yellowstone. I found out something about the battary cutoff switch, I am good to go

At least it was a quick fix as opposed to the dealer telling you they would have to keep the trailer for a week. Have a great and safe trip to Yellowstone. Don't forget to drive out the South entrance and drive through Grand Teton NP. It's just a couple of miles south of Yellowstone. Grand Teton has spectacular mountain views.

I had a great time in Yellowstone and Grizzly RV park is a really great park, if you get the chance do stay there. I had a problem with the bedroom slide not going out right, I took camper to Camping World today and left camper, I was told it would not take to long to fix. CW is only 50 miles away where Tom Johnson is 300 miles away where I brought the camper. I thought I was going to have bad trouble, DW saw a 36CKTS and fell in love but I think I can make the 30RL look a little like the 36CKTS. I plan to put 2 more windows in camper and move the entertainment center from the corner to the side or end. I want this camper to be the last camper, when I get to old to drag camper around I will park camper at the beach

good news, CW told me that what was causeing my bedroom slide not to go out right was the awning topper. That was great news, I should be able to get camper back by next weekend.
