RE: Amped 28FS Sway Issues when towing....need help!

Air bags should be used to help control the bounce (up and down) while traveling down the road. Start at 20 psi and add 5 psi until you get a ride that feels good. I respect your opinion (usually) but this statement has me very confused as it goes against everything I know about suspension, which I admit isn't all that much. Please explain as my thoughts are the shocks are the only thing that controls the bounce. The bags carry the load.

RE: Trailer behind a TH?

I have a email saved from CHP that says i am legal towing two bumper pulls. Need Class A with doubles/triples endorsement and cannot exceed 65ft. I am not going to try and decipher Ca code which is why i asked CHP. Thats odd. Ive asked multiple CHP officers from a few different districts and not 1 said it is legal because of the way the codes are written. I even asked our neighbor who is a city cop and he claims there isnt a VC thats says its illegal. Nevadnick is right, you cannot pull double trailers in Cali without commercial licenses, you can do it in Nevada as long as your under 65 foot and under 26,001 lbs gross weight. You can in California if you are from out of State and you are legal in your own State. Just to clarify. No that's not true, just cause your state says its OK is not OK in another state, if so than all people from Colorado can bring their weed to other states.. However the post above did show this >> In summary, nonresidents may tow two trailers with a non-commercial license IF their base state allows it. IF the vehicle is commercial, the driver would also need a valid medical certificate per 12502 CVC. But note it says the if vehicle is commercial and RV's are not.. You need a reading comprehension class... It says "IF the vehicle is commercial, the driver would also need a valid medical certificate per 12502 CVC."

RE: Cyclone vs Vengeance (long)

That may be true but their intent is to have a hauler to travel in when they are done there. This, like everything else in the gas and oil industry is temporary so they don't want to be tied down to anything at this point. Good plan...that whole area is going to go into shut down with these prices.

RE: It is a BIG desert!

Can appreciate tenfold the issues about noise etc and respecting others and general reasonable space, but one of the biggest concerns for us about considering going full time was the feeling of being lonely and isolated all the time. Almost every forum says how friendly and welcoming other RVers are, and messages of welcome to the family and RVers are such a friendly bunch willing to chat with you and so on and so forth. Yet here I read about everyone concerned about people staying as far away from them as possible, staking out their own areas and to boot on "public" lands. Maybe I'm missing something here, but it doesn't portray the "friendly, helpful" bunch we've been led to believe until now. How hard is it to say Hi and casually educate folks nicely about general etiquette if they are so lacking in common-sense without making it sound as though RVers are becoming the most unfriendliest grumpy folks around. I'm curious, what is the "acceptable" distance on "public" lands from the next RVer radius wise of someone that's noise cognizant of others around them? Hard to compare "Park" camping with "desert" camping....Not even close.

RE: e track pulled up

They make a "squish" nut that you don't have to have such a big starter hole to use than the butterfly thingies.

RE: What are these leaky featherlite doors useful for anyway?

Oh, and replace the gasket and it "should" stop the leak...! I see two big gaps.

RE: What are these leaky featherlite doors useful for anyway?

I don't know where that is on your trailer but on a sled trailer they are a fuel fill door. Not real easy to off load those to fill with gas.

RE: Can I replace radio with a radio/dvd combo?

Thanks everyone. Yes it's for the hauler. My tv is a 26" so i think 480 will be fine? I will probably order something online. Ummm...no to the 480. You will notice.

RE: Relocate batteries to reduce tongue weight

And that is what they call "the rest of the story." I would put some helper springs (or the like) in before I would modify the RV that much...to save very little.

RE: 40ft toy hauler

So let me ask yet another opinion question. Clean up the trade in TH real good or not so much? As always thank you for your replies. Carl Do you have the trade deal/value done or are you looking to get the value of it when you pull it in? Clean it if you are yet to do the deal. Leave it if the deal is done.

RE: Thermal Package

I am looking at a 2011 Toy Hauler, but it doesn't have the thermal package (insulation/warmers, etc) I really like the unit, but it doesn't have the thermal package. Does anyone know how much it should cost to add this package/ You are looking at used...keep looking. The one you want is out there. You are trying to band-aid the issue/problem with the unit you are looking at.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

I have never seen a better floor plan/layout than the Grand Design momentum 380...at least for me.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

...A house weighs thousands of tons... Now that is cute...but I think you may be off by a factor of say 1000 on your tons. This is 9,750 tonnes and a bit bigger than your house.

RE: Something to think about..LT or ST tires

I just replaced tires on my truck. First shop I visited would only replace with the factory stock tire size, stating liability issues. The next shop I visited and bought tires from put on the size I wanted, no questions asked. I was only going up one tire size, one load range up as well. Far as I can tell I put on a better tire, so what "Liability" issue would there be. First time I encountered this, I'm always changing to a slightly larger tire on my rides. JMHO. I am not a lawyer, but I have meet some very sharp ones in my time - and those can convince Eskimos to buy refrigerators. This would be all about following procedure. As an expert on the subject, I can make a very convincing argument - and I can argue the opposite. The lawyer's job is to convince a jury (or a judge) that doing something non-standard causes issues. Not hard to do. Does going up a load range increase the tire pressure? Are your rims rated for that? ...
