Default Potential owner now actual owner

Drove 200 miles to the dealer last week and traded our bantam flier for a new 2010 FunFinder 189FDS. She's all tucked away behind the garage and ready to have our stuff loaded.

I've started inquiring about a rear hitch and trying to get the OEM unit from Cruiser through our local dealer. I've looked at the I-beam rails and there are two brackets welded on the ends with 4 holes in them. I assume those are the mounts for the OEM hitch. The problem is that there is a piece of steel across the back, behind the end of the rails, that the stabilizers are bolted to. I would have to cut slots in them to get the hitch plates through and onto the brackets. Anyone done this? How did you make the holes? Pictures, as always, would be best.

I really hate the direct vent furnace. It doesn't have a squirrel cage fan and is extremely noisy. I hate losing a night's sleep so chances are I'll replace that with a ducted one. Anyone want to buy a new suburban NT-16SE furnace. Cheap!

call Suburban, your furnace should not be that noisy. Might just need an adjustment.

Default Furnace fan noise

After a couple of sleepless nights I decided to avoid using the furnace as mush as possible. Now we carry a small (750 watt, I believe) electric heater with thermostat and fan. They cost about $15 and are a heck of a lot easier to live with. Of course electricity can be a problem....

Mine is not that noisy. Sounds like something isn't quite right.

Default Fan noise

Thanks for the insight. I just thought the fan noise was something I would need to live with. Since my warrenty is up, I'll see if the manufacturer has any input.
