Heritage Glen and the Hemispheres are sister units and almost the same.

I have that 'bracket'...... does very little good on my unit.

Does anyone know the max psi that the stock 2015 wheels can support? My trailer is at the dealer getting the fridge replaced so I can't look at the wheels myself.

My trailer is in storage now for the winter so I can't check to confirm, but I have a feeling it's 50psi. I could be totally wrong though!!

I can't imagine it being only 50 psi because the tires are load rating of D which has a max psi of 65.

I checked the psi on the tires when I was out to check on the trailer while it is in storage the other day.

You are correct the tires are a max of 65psi.

Hope that helps,

Ahhhhhhh. My bad!!

I looked at the tires not the rims.

If the rims can handle 110psi then there is no reason we couldn't put higher load range tires. That is good to know

That's not a bad idea at all....it's good to know that we have lots of room to upgrade the tires on the rims Forest River provided with the units!

What gears you have in your tundra? I have the 4:30 in my 2012

As for late responses, I don't believe this thread is going anywhere anytime soon....I am hoping we get years of ideas and mods for our trailers from this thread.

I just have 1 baby girl and 1 girl on the way, we thought the floor plan would be perfect for our little family. I am curious to see how you manage with 5 kids.

Keep us updated,
My 2 girls my 2 nieces, 2dogs and me and the wife. Not too cramped yet.

Has anyone found a way to run heat into the bathroom? We noticed that there is no register there and wondered if anyone has run one or what you use for heat.

We are more worried about getting heat into the bunkroom as our trailer struggles with that.

As for getting heat into the bathroom, the only relatively easy way I could think of would be to take the ducting that runs to the round vent in the cabinet that houses the water pump off and then re route it under the tub (probably have to lengthen it) and then drill another round vent into the tub and voila.

That would be quite a bit of work to pull off, if it were me I would just buy an electric space heater.

Hope that helps,

I see you are pulling a small trailer behind your camper. Was it a kit you purchased or something of your own idea. Could you give some more detailed pictures of the hitch you have to pull the trailer behind your camper

Just got a new to us 2014 Heritage Glen 312 QBUD. We took it out for a short shake down trip before we head to Orlando for New Years. I was wondering if anyone has mounted a tv in a rear bedroom? Is so can you give me an idea where you put the mount I am worried about staying in the wall when driving.

We aren't quite there yet as both my girls are still babies, but I have thought about what I am going to do for a TV there for them.

I was planning on just putting the tv in the space next to the bunk ladder. My trailer has a little ledge there, then I was going to put an eye hook on both sides of the cabinet and run a strap across the TV while the trailer is in motion.

If you were to put an articulating Tv mount in that space I am pretty sure the back of that cabinet isn't very thick at all so anything screwed in there would surely come out. My idea would be to glue a wood plate, maybe a piece of 3/4 inch plywood to the back of the cabinet (probably use Pl 9000 glue) that should hold the wood plate to the cabinet and give you something to screw into.

Some of the other guys may have some better ideas
