Hi Jim have had 2 truck campers . The last one was for 12 years . It was a 9 1/2 with wet bath . Now that we have a 19 ft Escape , many times miss that camper for storage . There was every nook and cranny used for storage in the camper . No space wasted . If I go back to a camper the Northern lite is the one I will go for . Was lucky to see a brand new here . The costs to own are also cheaper , insurance etc. one license . It is insured as one unit . Can remove and use your TV when not camping . Just put clothes and food in and go . I may go back to camper again . Many positives . Pat

Cheers Milt


Milt - I also have a 2008 Northern Lite trailer. Bought it in Eugene Oregon - I took it to Massachusetts. I'm now on a trip to Fort Myers Florida with it.
I'm have having trouble with the heating system. It does not ignite. Any thoughts?

I don't have advice on your problem, except to say that all trailers use one of just 1-3 different brands of camper appliances. They're all the same. The make and model of the actual furnace will be more helpful. Brand of camper doesn't even matter when it comes to 90% of the systems in the trailer.

If you post in the Problem Solving area of the forum and just list the problem, the brand of furnace, and more specifically when it does and doesn't work, people will definitely have advice for you. It's going to be, I'm guessing, either an atwood/hydroflame or suburban. Something all fiberglass trailers with heater have.

Thank you. It has an Atwood furnace and Thermostate. Yes, Problem Solving is the place for my question.

Thanks Milt - I'm very pleased to be in touch with another 2008 Northern Light trailer owner. I never see others - not on the road, on social media or in RV campgrounds. It seems to be a very small group. I just posted a few photos in my profile.

Happy trailering!

-Roger

:Roger why not call the Atwood people and if u cannot do that then go to a RV shop and find out what to do or have them to fix it.
That way you know your not about to blow your self up.
