Bravo67, be careful on how much you restrict air flow to different areas. The restriction could prevent the furnace from functioning properly. Just a heads up, and congrats on the new trailer!!

GHCamper,Shop on pricing for I have seen these units as low as 34,999 up to 51,000,so it does pay to show around for pricing even if it means driving some distance's for closer to the factory the shipping costs drop's....We too had a bad experience with one dealer on pricing,and also it was sold even with a deposit on the unit,oh well...GHCamper it does say in the owners manual that you should open slightly a window perferrably the window above the countertop next to the stove,when cooking as to help with ventilation while cooking.We started the oven up with nothing in it and allow it to run for about 1 1/2 hours at around 350 to bake-off any production oils from the metals....GHCamper this does qualify as a tax write off as a second home at least as our tax rep states,so all the gas,hotels,meals we will submit to IRS for consideration.About 6 day-night shades needed the cords adjusted for they would not stay up.The battery cable ends were loose and the vent box's were not secured properly.Needed a good cleaning on the outside and the roof as well.One thing I might point out is be very through on your PDI pay close attention to the roof to be sure it has proper sag-sealant around all vents.Decals as well too on the side of the RV trailer as well.Pay close attention to breaking in your brakes a swell.And above all enjoy your new home away from home.

Thank-you Aquaman, yes I do know about the back-flow shutdown feature for the Suburban furnance. The only regristar we ended up changing was the bathroom it just got way to hot,our friends in R.I took their unit bathroom regristar out and bended all the louvers slightly down some more to restrict the flow alittle and that seemed to do the trick as well.

I have just updated the cheap Chinese battery terminal ends with some really nice copper lugs,and heat shrinked to boot as well.Batteries are at a full charge now.And the refridgerator has know been running for 4 days now and is working quite nice.The residential unit is really the way for us to go.We have selected a lining for the drawers a clear grippy neoprem so as to add in holding things in place.We still might make small drawer dividers in each drawer. I will be putting on hold de-winterizing for a couple more months,unless El Nino changes are weather here in Texas, today's 70 degree temp ,was a good case to de-winterized,and hit the road sooner rather than later. Wow,what a difference in temps from low 40's. I am looking in to a much bigger spetic hose with a ladder down hill system,the one that comes with it might be a tad to small for some site's we visited last year with our Catalina 29ft.So a upgrade may be in the works.Before I left our dealership they gave us a care package,a new water hose,tank deoderizer,and a water filter,fittings too and to top if off a gift certificate for 10 percent off any order, place with them.So their is a incentive their for us.It has been a real pleasure working with this dealership,they never skip a beat with us.And the PDI had a few items but nothing to get upset about for sure,and the tech's even set our hitch level for this 5th wheel trailer,free of charged.I had brought all the tools just in case it might be extra.Wow boy howdy their is still RV dealership's out there that doesn't nick and dime you.Ah the saga continue's hope to be out on the road soon...

So we too have purchased a HG 337BAR and we are really looking forward to seeing the great USA. First we are going to do some local trips 3 or 4 in all before we take our long trip to Yellowstone, Glacier Nat. Park and then Mount Rushmore, then back home..

Thank you so much Bravo67 for all helpful info! We are purchasing for around 35,000, so I think we have done okay. We will keep in mind everything upon our inspection.

I am happy to report our shake-down cruise went quite well.Our FR Heritage Glen 337 performed flawlessly.1 week of running a/c,heater,and all,including baking our first ham in the oven.After a relaxing day at the mineral bath's,complete with massage,it was nice to come home to our FR Heritage Glenn for a ham dinner,with all the trimmings.I just drove 836 miles,and it towed like a dream as well.Our next trip is in the planning stages with a trip to the Northwest,and then over to Canada.Hope to rv park with some of you some day.See ya all down the road..

Congrats on the 337, we do love ours! We were out a few weekend ago with the In-Laws in tow, boy did they have a great time. Even with 4 adults we had plenty of room to function. Boy am I glad we added that 2nd AC, it was 106 degrees while there, nice and cool.

Congrats again!
