Dale, speaking of CO detectors... Did you hear about the carbon monoxide scare at the Forest River plant?
Why wouldn't all the CO detectors in the trailers be going off!

klassic, I did hear about it! Here is what I understand about the issue. You need to know that as the units are going down the production line, each one is plugged into 110 power. That lights up every unit. Everything electrical is turned on as it goes down the line, including the converter. At the end of the day, in this case, for the weekend, every extension cord is pulled from every unit for obvious reasons.

On Monday morning when the workers came in, they started plugging in the extension cords and CO2 detectors started going off inside the units but, at first, they didn't completely understand why. However, it did not take long for them to figure out!!

Same here, will not drain completely.

The only thing so far for ours is the ice maker. Makes very tiny cubes. I watched the water flow and it is just a trickle. Checked flow to the fridge and it is fine. Must be the fridge. Any one had pull a fridge out enough to get to the water solenoid?

Hello All,

Fantastic info shared by all. We will definitely be installing a CO in bedroom, if not in front and rear of our FBTS as well. Better to be safe than Sorry.
Rock
Would you mind sharing (perhaps via email) the spots you sealed up and use steel wool to keep out rodents? We are still so new to RVin' and learning so much through this thread and didn't even think about looking at undercarriage for rodent access.
Currently, our unit is in storage but I would think there is still possibility of rodents looking for a place to bed when the AZ nights get near freezing...
I would also like to re-engineer the space behind the basement wall... it appears there is a lot of space that could be more effectively used. Also a great place to put rodent traps etc..

Thanks again everyone for sharing your experiences. We are really anxious to get back out on another trip....

Hello Tim&Paula,

Did you check the valve behind the drawer under the oven? If the fridge is getting good pressure, it's probably fine...

We took a tour of the factory prior to picking up our FBTS and the furniture and appliances are all installed in the slides BEFORE the slideouts are even installed.
Now thinking about it, not sure how the fridge would come for repair or replacement...
Maybe the Island would need to removed to give access to pull out fridge even with the slide out extended.

Our Ice cubes are small too and the Ice tray never really gets too full, but we've always seemed to have ice.. When I changed the freezer temp to -5 it appears to work much better...

AZ-FBTS, For several years, in our old unit and now in the new, I have put moth balls and drier sheets thru out the unit. 2 years ago, I did have a mouse but, caught his furry little butt in the basement!! Might not make sense but, seems to work pretty decent for me.

Excellent Dalengail,

Sounds like an easy, clean, precautionary measure to me... Thank you!
