Hey Chris think you would be able to get The dimension from the plate to the ground (when the camper is level) and the dimension of the plate to the overhang of the camper. I have been trying to get my dealer to get them but it has been a week now and still nothing. I am trying to see if my truck will fit to tow my camper before i make the long drive to the states to get it and find out i have to do a bunch of modding. Hope you can help me out thanks Trevor

Question Tankless waterheater

Chris, Our new Sterling is ordered, we opted for the tankless waterheater but read on fourum that its not for dry camp, or is it? I assumed it was propane but now I need to clear this up before it's built. Help!! thanks

Electrical Cord

According to the website there seems to be a difference in electrical cords between the Wildcat and Sterling.

Wildcat spec: Quick Disconnect Marine-style Shore Cord

Sterling spec: 50 AMP Service with Detachable Cord

If I order the 50 amp service option for a Wildcat, what kind of cord do I get?

Do you have a response to this thread

Ever wonder what's behind your Concertone

Is this typical of the work done by Wildcat employees on the production line?

I don't know you and don't mean to put you on the spot but thought you might shed some light on this for us.

Thanks,

Buffalohunter, what was in that pic, is pretty common in the RV industry, no matter the brand or price.
i could show you the same kind of pics from my Rockwood. i'll bet your trailer has similar areas and messes.
not saying it should be acceptable, just that it's not unusual. the factory workers are paid on piece-rate so the faster they are, the more money they make.

I hear you Dan and I know what you mean. I worked against flat rate years ago and still made good times and money doing a neat and clean job. Looking at the pictures it made me wonder what was used to cut the holes, not a hole saw for sure. How much time could be lost removing the cut out piece of wood. The tiny wood chips might require a brush or a vacuum but still not enough time to lose pride in doing a job well. Just one man's opinion.

Take care, I will be looking my new Windjammer over when I pick it up on Wednesday (I hope). I won't make a big deal about it if it is similar to the photos but I will say something about it for sure. - good or bad

Respectfully,
Jim

Chris, what is included in the exterior package (mandatory) and the interior package #1 and #2 also mandatory in the wildcat 5th wheels?

Buffalohunter, mine was just as messy behind the Concertone when I had to fix a plug that unplugged itself. That debris box prompted me to check other locations for messes, such as locations with boxes marked "Caution, Hot." Sure enough, I found sawdust and scraps around the furnace. The same stuff we used to call tinder in Scouts. Yep, looks to me that manufacturers and dealers have abdicated the role of inspector to you, the consumer.

Hello,
I am in Fort Myers, FL and have fallen in Love with the new Vengeance 306V. Problem is I can't find a dealer locally (or closer) who even carries the Vengeance.
I have tried the Dealer Locater, but always coming up empty. (No dealer in this area) Would be nice to get the closes one (or 2-3) shown. Don't mind driving to get what I want.
Thanks

I'm on the road at shows this weekend. Did some one from the dealership assist you?
