If you left the bunkhouse door open it would work much better, but that isn't an option for us.

Well this thread has been an interesting read. We bought a 2017 Heritage Glen 312QBUD last August and so far it's been great. We did have an issue with heat in the bunkhouse but the dealer removed several feet of extra duct work which seems to have greatly improved the airflow. One issue I haven't figured out is what's draining the batteries in storage. Everything is turned off and the batteries are fully charged when I put it away but even a week later they are nearly dead. I think this is causing an issue with the inverter as well. Last year I was able to plug in to be truck, flip the residential fridge on and it would begin cooking. Now it overloads the inverter and I get an E04 error message.

My guess is the CO2 detector. That's usually the culprit. I always take the positive cable off the battery when I put the trailer in storage even if it's for a couple days and when I hook it back up the battery is always the same as when I left it. I have left it for a couple months this way and battery was still good to go.

One of these days I will get around to installing a dedicated battery disconnect switch so I don't have to take the battery cables off each time.

Hope that helps,

There are parasite leaks that are not thought of until you have a dead battery when the camper 'sits' and is not plugged in to a land line. The CO2 detector is one and another is the radio readout. Shutting off the 'Breakers' at the converter may help on some parasites, but not all... Put a 'battery disconnect' on it or manually disconnect the battery.

A single should disconnect both batteries just make sure it's after the last battery connection

Just put your disconnect on the cable that goes back to the trailer. The other goes to the inverter. You just need to figure out which is which.

Or do 2 disconnects 1 on each wire that will work too

I ordered a couple of marine grade quick disconnect switches. Hopefully it's as simple as I think it will be.

312qbuds bunkhouse heat

After talking with my dealer he says his normally reps on these units is to make sure the ducts are actually connected well then what he does is replaces the vent with a closable one under the stove as well as the floor register closest to the rear of the trailer (not in the bunkhouse) he told me once he did this it usually sends better airflow to the rear hope this helps my dealer Nye is supplying me with the vents needed and I will be trying this on my own.

I tried that as well using tape over the vents and I ended up overheating my furnace so I gave up on that idea and just went with the electric heater.

I put a ceramic heater with the temp set at 65 in the bunkhouse and have the camper furnace set at 68. I also set the camper fan on low to circulate the air. The kids never get cold.

Does anybody have any issues with the water pressure on the kitchen facet?

The rest of the rig seems pretty good, but the kitchen is barely better than a trickle. I have taken the facet apart and haven't found a restrictor. I am wondering if there might be one at the main facet connection under the sink?

Anyone faced the same?

I didn't take pics along the way but can snap a few of the finished product. I modified a few things. I.e., I didn't use the connectors that came installed; those would not have stayed connected. Instead I soldered enough wire to cross the width of the trailer. Also soldered wire on power input side, ran up into the forward storage compartment. I'm pleased with how bright they are, and they're Bluetooth with multiple functions.

Furnace

So we took our trailer out for the first time this year last night. The trouble I'm having is when I turn the furnace on it works fine but when it cuts out it will not kick in anymore. Can anyone out there help me? Unfortunately I live in northern Newfoundland and this is still a must have for the night time🙁 Also it worked fine the first two years.
