    Roof weight capacity: 2008 Flagstaff LTD/MAC 228D

    Just found this on a FR Forum- I exchanged e-mails with the Forest River Warranty Administrator about placing a rack on a HW296. Here is his direct quote from the e-mail... "The roof can handle up to 200 lbs. of weight but it does need to be distributed to the out edge of the roof as that is...

    Roof weight capacity: 2008 Flagstaff LTD/MAC 228D

They work great- I was able to run all wiring inside the channels...

    Need new tires

    We bought Carlisle Radial Trail HD 185/80 R13 on Amazon and had a local tire place put on for me- they were $65 each - the production dates were good- we have had no issues with the ride - our trailer is 3200-3400 all in and we tow at 65mph. As with most tires this size they are made in China...

    What does this valve do on the water tank?

    Pretty sure that valve allows the holding tank to fill when on city water or not- plug in hose at your city water connect and turn handle and see if the tank fills

    propane firepits

    If you can’t find the correct hose check out they have all kinds of connections and hoses- bought a quick connect and longer hose to add to our fire pit- works great

    Propane relocate

    There is a guy on you tube named “one 2 many hobbies” that moved the propane tanks back where the batteries were and dropped them so he could fit larger tanks- of course he did a lot of mods to get it done but might give you some ideas

    Propane on for 3-way fridge while underway?

    We pre chill at home from 110, switch to 12V to drive, switch to propane when set up- agree it’s not as cold as we want so we add 4 frozen water bottles to help it get there. Seems to work for us. When we finish camping we leave the fridge with a dozen or so water bottles so they help with the...
