I have never used it and am wanting to but am unsure as to weather I need to put anything in the tank prior to use for ease of dumping the black water tank. Also where should I install the water filter? When and how should I open the hot water heater to fill it up? Just some questions I need help on. Thanks in advance!!!!
See these links for more help...

I know that these products exist, but unfortunately I don't have more information on them. A quick search online came up with this:
Venting Products / AC Vents / "Spaceport" #8840 Fully Adjustable RV AC Ceiling Vent - DW Inc.
But I don't know if that part fits the Wildcat system. I'll check in with my purchasing department and let them know we've had requests for this upgrade...

The rack it sits on still comes out and lowers (for better cooking height), but now has 2 adjustable legs for better stability. There is also still an LP quick connect in this area to add on to your outside kitchen if needed. Hope this helps!
We had the RVQ grill on a previous fiver and now have the Weber electric. I will take the Weber hands down to the RVQ any day. The only problem is now I need to find another small grill for those days we don't have electric hook ups.

SANITIZING THE FRESH WATER SYSTEM. If you forget the link given by Chris, you can refer to the Forest River Travel Trailer/Fifth Wheel Owner's Manual's section on Sanitizing the Fresh Water System. This is on page 27 of my manual and gives a similar procedure as that shown in the video. However, the manual's directions call for making a mixture with 1/4 cup of bleach to a gallon of water to add to your tank for each 15 gallons of fresh-water storage and let it stand for at least 3 hours.

It is my experience that 12 hours is need when there is a problem and I wouldn't mix too strong a solution to pour into the holding tank. The FR recommendation of 1/4 cup to a gal. of water is strong enough.

Obviously, the best resource is your local Wildcat dealer -- and we're very proud of the dealers we have on the ground today. But if you're stuck, please let me know your questions. If I can assist, I'll do my best to get you an answer in a timely manner or direct you towards someone who can. Wildcat's got some great people in production, service, and parts that I can count on to help me help you.

Hope we can keep this both friendly and productive!


Hi Chris: I have a 2007 Wildcat Model 27RLWB, I know that the side walls are Aluminum framed, but can you tell me if the rear wall also has Aluminum framing, or is it wood studs. I have a leak from the top right rear corner that has caused some delamination down the back rear corner.
Thanks...... Ron R.

There are hundreds of RV alarm systems out there. Most times one's RV is broken into when it is parked in an RV area near one's home, but unfortunately out of sight.
Is there a battery operated system out there that would do two things. firstly make a loud sound when someone shakes or pounds on a door indicating attempted entry. secondly let the owner know in his home that someone is tampering with his unit.
Not much point in having the alarm going off when the door has already been pried off and damage done.

Any recommendation out there ???

Chris,
I've blown all 4 brand new tires on my 2004 wildcat 27RL 5th wheel. In the process the shirt and the aluminum panels that they attach to. I have had no luck getting a reply phone call from Forest river. How do I get replacement parts? I've been working on getting parts for over a week and have not gotten anywhere.. I'm currently stuck in Rapid City, SD waiting.
Thanks
