We all so have the noise problem with the front ac when it was running.
We have the same exact seperation on our slide as eisbell's photo exept ours is on the kitchen slide and the black plastic peice that is on the very bottom has cracks and tears and is lifting the carpet on the inside. This has not affected the operation of the slide but we were worried the whole way back.
We had very heavy blowing rain while in Virginia, and found two windows that were leaking water in. The emergency exit window and the small window by the sink. This was not a tiny leak water was streaming in. Both windows were closed tight.
Some how we lost one of the foot pads on our 6 way leveling system. The Pin was still hanging through one side but the pad was gone. I think the pins bail was over stretched.
We will be scheduling a drop off with our dealer.
All the issues should be able to be taken care of we still love the Columbus.
Joel & Bec:
Glad to hear how well you enjoy your 320RS. Ours is on order & it's hard to have to wait.
I can't imagine that there would be such a descrepancy in the ability to keep cool 2 different units of the exact same model Columbus (320RS) as described by you folks & by Robt & Estha Shiflet (see above post).
1) Do you have dual pane windows?
2) Is your outside color grey or tan?
We are about to get our Ford F-250 KR with 6.7L PS diesel.
1) Is yours a 2 WD or 4x4?
2) How was the power of the diesel pulling the Columbus thru the Blue Ridge Mtns & what MPG were you getting?
3) We also plan to install the Hensley BD3 hitch system. Does it really do a good job re: reducing chucking & bouncing? Would you buy it again?
Thanks for all your info & hope to see you "on the road" sometime-
