Continue to have LR slide problems. Nownun Billings, Mt. No Rv shop wants to work on a hydraulic system. We did get a mobile repair service to help us. He did what he could to adjust the slide, bled
the system. The slide is currently staying in place when retracted. Hydraulic motor is being replaced.The weight of the slide
has permantly bowed the supports and one of the two support rollers is frozen. We added a wide piece of Teflon to help the slide get over the non functioning roller.
We have a 2007 Hurricane 34B. We like the layout but continue to have problems with the slideouts primarily the couch/booth slide out. Very poor design. It has one center hydraulic piston (now using the 3rd one) and no other support to help guide the slide. This trip, after closing the slide, it started inching out (when driving
or parked). Installed new hydraulic valve and "anti creep valve" from the Equalizer factory. When trying to close the slide it stops moving (frustrating and worrisome when traveling). At a loss on how to fix this without removing the slide and modifying the slide support system.

We are looking at buying a 2005 Four Winds Hurricane motor home. Can anyone give us some comments about them?
For you Ford chassis out there, check out the "Cheap Handling Fix" thread on IRV2.net. You simply re-attached your front sway bar using the inner bolt holes. Can anyone give me the CCC rating on a 30Q?

Hi, Im looking at a leftover Hurricane 30Q does anyone have any pros or cons on this unit. If you recently bought one what price range was the purchase. Trying to get the lowest price and beat the depreciation. Thanks for any help
Hi Wayne & Linda. I assume that the manufacturer has used the 6 volt, deep cycle golf cart batteries as the house battery pack. Most manufacturers do this and they use two 6 volt batteries, hooked in series which gives you 12 volts. By using the deep cycle 6 volt golf cart batteries, you have much more battery capacity for your house system. My Monaco uses eight 6 volt batteries with four sets of two hooked in series to give 12 volts and then the 4 sets are hooked in parallel to provide additional battery capacity. I hope this helps you understand your battery system better.

JUST BOUGHT A 2007 34b 13000.miles DRIVES GREAT. HOWEVER. I found THEIR were 6 volt BATTs. FOR the coach. HAS any one ever heard of this ????
I have a 2010 Hurricane. We have
had it about 1 1/2 years. We have had nothing but problems with it.
The first thing, there was no AC
in the front of the coach. We had
to take it to 3 different service
areas befor it was fixed. The steering was really eratic, was hard to hold on the road. Still
not fixed after having it worked
on at 4 different Ford dealers.
It leaked around the windshield
and the rubber gasket had to be
replaced. Had problems with the
slider not sliding out. We are
extremily unhapper with the RV.

After about two years of looking and researching my husband and I bought a slightly used 2008 Four Winds Hurricane 34B last summer and absolutely love the layout!! It only had 134 hours on the generator and 8000 miles on the engine. Although both our children are grown I talked my hubby into buying a bunk model, and because I’m a quilter and there is plenty of room in the bedroom to set up my sewing. I can close the door and I don't disturb my hubby in the living room. This layout is great because when our kids come and visit we have room to sleep 4 extra adults!! (We let them decide which couple gets the bunk beds and which one gets the pull out.) And the bunks can be used as extra storage when not in use (they are great for golf clubs). We did have an issue with leaks at the living room and bed room slides but they were fixed under warrant and are fine now. We also had an issue with the thermostat control and again it was replaced under warrant and is fine. All in all, the unit is wonderful and the price made it possible for us to full time because we didn’t have to mortgage our Motorhome. From what we have found no Motorhome (like a house) is perfect so we found one that fit us and got fixed what needed to be fixed. :O)

We have a 34U and we love the floor plan. We took it out 3 days after purchase and we spent 5 months on the road. Love the way it drives. We hade only one issue and it was minor.
We are thinking at buying a used Hurricane but when we drove it the cab had so much motor noise. Does anyone have advise? Thanks, Steve
I have a 2007 34N. I lost a TV and Microwave when a power surge took place at an RV resort in Palm Springs. Is it possible to install a hard wire surge protector, notwithstanding the Roto-Cast Utility Station.

economy has changed our plans for a few years firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a 2008 34B. Love it. Really recommend the Hurricane for price and quality. Like the 34B but the 34U floorplan looks awesome. Love the look of the dinette.
I have had noting but problems. I have replaced the coach battery. The wire came loose from the backup camera.Now its in the shop because the winshield is falling out. In addition I was trying to figure out why there was so much noise in the cab.Guess what the window on the passenger side was set incorrectly by the manufacturer and therefore would not close. I want my money back. Poor, Poor quality.
My husband and I are looking at a 2006 Four Winds Hurricane 33H. We had some questions about standard eqipment on that model.1. Are 2 air conditioners standard? 2. Chrome or Aluminum wheels standard or optional? 3.Spare tire kit standard or optional? 4. Is the regular cook top different from a gas grill option?
Thanks for any info you can give me.

We have 2008 31D. We have travelled in it for the last 18 months and have now done 24,000 miles. We are really happy with the layout and the price we paid. We are very impressed with the way the whole RV is configured for ease of use. We had some minor repairs with one slide. Everything elses works extremely well. Would recommend this company.
We bought a 2008 Four Winds Hurricane 31D and love the plan and the interior design. It is a great value and has lots of extras. We have looked a many more expensive makes and models and we wouldn't trade.

We have the 2006 32R and love it. We have no problems with it except the exhaust fan which quit. It rides nice, very comforatble, storage is great. Its also for sale since our jobs are not letting us travel for a few years. 65k buys it.
could anyone tell me if a four winds hurrican 34n class a motor home comes with a screen for the emergency window in bedroom.
Have a 2006 hurricane 34n. I have experienced some problems. The latest I tried to open bathroom door..noticed door frame and trim work is all warped and messed up? It appears we sprung a leak in the shower area and it ran under the shower pan to the toilet area. Anyone else with this aweful problem?
Just traded in my 2007 35' Georgetown Bunk Model in on a 2008 34B. I am quite impressed in the improvements they have made. Talk about a night and day difference in quality compared to the Georgetown, the hurricane is built solid, drives better with more options for the same price... After 3 weeks of solid use and two softball tournaments with 10 teenage girls and their families I only had 4 items on a list to take back... Very minor things... I am a former engineering manager for Chinook Motorhomes and Alpine Coach, so after having been in this trade for 20 years I can say that this coach has the quality and craftsmanship of RV's at twice the price point.
I want a Four Winds class A. like Four Winds.
We love the ride doesn't lean when turning like our other one did (not a Four Winds product), good wheel base. With 2 slide outs in the front room its huge, bathroom large enough for 2 if one needs help. I use the shower for trash storage and dirty clothes. In the morning my husband and I race to the drivers seat to see who drives first. Only real problem was coach batteries not charging was not noticeable on short trips. Checked everything replaced batteries several times, problem was even the replacement converters were bad. Four Winds said converters were bad and had substitute. No more problems! One important issue for me is I have to prop pilows around me because the drivers seat does not move up far enough and, next time I would request a couch that flips to a bed not a pull out.
We are now in our 3rd motorhome! First was Class C, 2nd was Class A, now back to Class C. We have the 2006 Fleetwood Tioga. We tow a 2004 Grand/Cher. Jeep and hardly know it is behind us! It rides and drives like a dream. It is a WONDERFUL RV with UNHEARD of storage underneath-lots of it. We never fill the whole area! The only problem we've had is the hotwater heater.
We purchased a 2007 Hurricane 34B last year and love it. We have had some minor wiring issues and a couple of the slides recently needed adjusting, but no major problems. The floorplan is great for families and is much better than staying in a hotel when we are traveling to ice hockey games and tournaments!
I have a 2005 Hurricane 34N that I really enjoy. I've had a tag along and a Class C, but none compare to my 34N. It has all options except the color backup monitor and navigation system. I pull a 2006 Saturn Vue and have no problems what-so-ever. The mileage veries with what I tow and how I drive. *mpg is average driving 55-60, sometimes 65.
We have a 31D. The floor plan is excellent. The Ford triton V10 has plenty of get up and go. The brakes are very good at stopping. The turning radius and handling are superior to the 27 ft Class C we traded in.
I have the 2007 34N and it's my first RV. I love it! Great value for the money. Some startup problems due to poor quality control at the factory: radio inop (wire came loose), coach DC system inop (undocumented circuit breaker popped in box under hood), awning brackets causing noise (reinstalled with more clearance), shower door magnetic strip wouldn't stay in place (superglued), water pump froze on first night with sub-freezing temperatures (heater hose from interior to basement had not been installed). The dealer fixed these items in less than one day. Be aware the "satellite ready" Jensen radio requires an expenseive ($200) tuner and antenna installation to receive Sirius radio broadcasts. I purchased a portable unit for $69 at Best Buy that works just great.
We are Full Timing in the '06 34N with 3 slides and enjoy it very much. We would like a better doors and locks on the basement, but that is really the only complaint.
I have a Four Winds 2007 34n I love this model...When I need to get away this is my second home...this is my third RV and is like a home on the go...
We hve a 2004 Four Winds Dutchmen class C. Loved this RV no real problems and value for money. Would love to get a class A and the hurricane looks perfect. Like the dual zone arrangement.
I think the bedroom arrangement with the sofa and the big wardrobe is awesome.
