RE: Road Recommended by Good Sam and Completely Unpassable

Sorry to hear about your tough lesson. But why didn't you unhook the Toad and turn around when you had the chance? Pretty much any MH could be turned around on a stretch of 2 lane road, it may take several forward backward attempts but can be done. Oh, and you cannot backup with a Toad period.

RE: 12 Volt Solar panel for 4 6v batteries in series parallel

Ok copy. So if I put the positive from the solar panel to the positive on one battery and the negative from the solar panel to the negative on the same battery it will charge all 4 batteries. Thanks No... The leads should be connected to the 12v series parallel posts that the TT uses. This will be the positive post on one battery and the negative post on another battery.

RE: Speechless!

Both images are not accessible anymore. They may have been at one point. Some of you may still be able to see them if your browser has previously cached them, but those of us looking at this thread now don't see anything!

RE: Hot Water is Only Warm Water

This can happen when one of the shower heads is turned off at the head when the water valves are left open. Hot and cold can mix. Check inside and outside showers.

RE: Tow with a Jeep 4x4 8 cylinder vs truck?

Grand Cherokee max is 6200 specially equipped But standard is 3500 lbs https://www.jeep.com/model-compare/detailed-chart/?modelYearCode=CUJ201703 But I still think you will run out of vehicle payload capacity before you run out towing capacity. I cannot find the payload specs online Nah its over 7K with the Hemi, or the Diesel... Jeep Towing Guide

RE: Tow with a Jeep 4x4 8 cylinder vs truck?

Not the Cherokee! Perhaps the Grand Cherokee? Big difference. The JGC can pull 7K but we recommend not going over a 26ft TT. PM me if you want further details.

RE: Generators

Yes you can, most of us MH operators do this all the time to run the A/C units. The generator if properly sized should be enough to power everything in the TH. But I too have the same question, why? In the MH there are people, but while towing the TH there shouldn't be anyone, or any pets in there...

RE: Do I need a generator?

Your battery also provides power for the gas alarms, refrigerator circuit board and possibly your water heater circuit board. So there is more to consider than just lights.

RE: Anti-Sway Broken--How Serious? Need Help!

The friction arm may have been installed incorrectly. When you made the turn it may have reached the end of it's travel and snapped off. Be sure to check this possibility out when replacing it. This is a job you can do yourself.

RE: buying in AZ, I live in cali.

Pretty sure that since this is a Toy Hauler (Trailer) and not a Motor Vehicle (Motor Home), there should be no issue buying in AZ and registering in CA....

RE: buying in AZ, I live in cali.

Generally you would only pay sales tax to the state where you register the TH.

RE: Charge On the Go

All 7 pin connectors support a minimum amount of charging assuming your truck is wired correctly and the charge pin is powered. Don't expect it to recharge your batteries completely but rather it's more of a maintain situation.

RE: Outlets Off while Boonedocking

Three ways they work: Shore Power, Generator, or Inverter off of your batteries. Sounds like you need an inverter. How big is your battery bank?

RE: Settle an argument about CCC

CCC is only a rating. You can only determine your own CCC by weighing your trailer and subtracting that from the GVWR.

RE: License to drive motor homes over 26,000 lbs.

Some state do require Non Commercial CDL type licences. Sounds like PA does for residents. Here in Michigan they don't, and I wouldn't think twice about driving through PA or any other state that required them.

Tire Rack and Simple Tire are the two I've used in the past.

RE: Where's everyone going for Memorial weekend?

Decided long ago not to camp on holiday weekends anymore. So we go to our cottage. Canada Creek Ranch near Atlanta, MI.

RE: Towing Vehicles for Class A motor Homes

Be more specific. What MH? Gas or Diesel? What Toad? Most gas MH's will be limited to 5000# vehicles, and some only 4000#. Most diesel MH's will be in the 10,000# area. For dolly towing most FWD automatics are OK, for 4 down towing most 4x4 vehicles with neutral transfer case are OK. Most RWD vehicles cannot be towed without modifications. But there are several exceptions out there. Mods should move this post to the Toad forum...
