RE: Sewer/black tank smell inside trailer

I did not know that water in the p traps acted as a vapor barrier. I will make sure to fill the p traps before it gets parked. That IS their only purpose in being...fill it with RV antifreeze so it doesn't evaporate (as fast) or freeze.

RE: Cylcone 4200 - Does it exist?

...and whose opinion translates into profit? Good point. I'm not qualified to answer that, but I do have to think the people on RV.net are a well rounded pool for such a poll versus those on the Heartland forum who are probably slightly biased to Heartland products. Myself included... But you are leaving out the "if they just built this floor plan" people they are trying to attract...not saying they will or do but you gotta try.

RE: Rear Axle True?

Take it to a semi trailer tire shop that does alignments. Most will also align RV's. They know what to do. The only sound advice you have so far...

RE: Temperature in the garage

We run a 1500 watt heater in the garage. The factory (fusion) carpet kit helps a lot - meaning the floor has near zero insulation. Leaving the door to the main room with a fan on the floor helps even out the temps in the trailer. The garage is still noticeably cooler then the living room 3 feet away. The other issue is all the heat is near the ceiling, and we use the lower bunk for the kids by night and the garage as a playroom by day. Rig up a ceiling fan and point it up not down...take a box fan and lay it flat 1' from the ceiling blowing up. This forces the warm air down the walls and to the floor. Much better in the winter. If you have a ceiling fan in there already you are ahead of the game. Always reverse your ceiling fans for winter use...that is what the switch is for...

RE: Center Awning Support poll

On my 12-foot awning I got away with stretching across several of the stretch ropes with hook ends linked together... I think 50-inch was as long as you can buy... that helped mine alot from sagging in the middle... http://www.rei.com/skuimage/674919 height=300 Roy Ken Make your own length...Many places sell it in bulk length. Like this...

RE: Non-heated holding and water tank options

I would say in your location the actual freezing of the tank isnt the issue...IF you keep it full...the hoses, pipes and pumps are a different story. Get some heat tape made for pipes and wrap them...and plug it in.

RE: Toy Hauler Forum People are the best

Tell your doctor to order a PET Scan next time. (Maybe they already did?)

RE: Fifth wheel in near future, and need some suggestions!

His Tundra is also going to limit his choices. no, the Tundra will be in the garage! lol. Please, looking for a toy hauler will put me in the 16k 18k #'s, it will be a drw truck! We used to own a Boat, one bath was a problem for us waiting for 5 to 7 persons to get ready to go out, same problem now with camping, just looking to ease our camping adventures. When you say "go out" are you talking "clubbing" or ridding? If you are clubbing maybe you need a shower house tag along trailer...?

RE: Wireless Backup Camera

So if I'm understanding you correctly, you are suggesting that I strap my smartphone to the back of my toy hauler? No, he said he straps his WIFE to the back of the fifth wheel...with her cell phone in hand.

RE: Bumper Pull vs 5th Wheel

My Bumper Pull is 36'6" including tongue. I kid you not it's long but I like having a canopy on the back of my truck to haul extra cargo. Can't say which one tows better because I have no Fiver experience, but I can say I watched a guy backing a Fiver in the same spot I had backed my Rig in a few days earlier before I moved and he had a heck of a time and I just backed right in. Says more about the driver than the fiver...

RE: Hershey show recommendations??

I guess you just proved my point...weren't we talking about things that the "industry" needs to start doing BETTER? Quite honestly, most people that use toyhaulers don't sit around and eat at a dinette anyway. That is definitely in the minority of usage...may be on your list of things you want, but not industry wide. There are a few out there.... Agreed, and I don't either...full disclosure: I ONLY eat at a proper table when guests are over. The rest of the time it is a pop up coffee table at the couch. What I was commenting on is why they put a card table in a $100k RV. Toy hauler or not. I am glad we got to the bottom of that...seems we are closer to agreeing than I first thought...;-)

RE: Hershey show recommendations??

Grand Design Momentum fifth wheel toy haulers... Not payin' $100,000 for a high end 5th with a pair of FOLDING TABLES...what crap. And when will the MFG figure out that the TV doesn't go on the wall 90deg to the couch...pop it up from the counter top or swing it down from above the slide already! Yep, the poles are soooo much better...LOL No, but a REAL kitchen table and chairs ARE! For 100k I would expect that. Well, if you are willing to pay $100K (which is MSRP on most of the big TH's), then I will buy you a table and chair set. Have you really looked at most toyhaulers? There are very few that use a dedicated dining area. I guess you just proved my point...weren't we talking about things that the "industry" needs to start doing BETTER?

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

I worked in the can manufacturing business as a mechanic on the lines for nearly 40 years. Yep...and like I said, in a steel application, no problem...correct torque is even better. We are talking about wood here...different story. If a nylock loosens, it isn't going to fall off. I cant say the same about a lock washer system. End of my 2 cents.

RE: You're on your own.

New guy here, and still have yet to purchase my first RV but this thread puts my hunt into a broader perspective. As for top notch quality, I'd wager Prevost ( Class A MH's ) would be in the top 4, but as a bus conversion their surely more structurally sound before the interiors are even built. Wondering if there's better quality/integrity within a custom cargo trailer than the standard TH? Um...YES!
