RE: Check you tie downs

No pride of workmanship sadly. Better check everything.

RE: Any of you tow a TT and carry a boat above truck bed/cab?

My 12 foot aluminum rides atop our van on a Thule brand rack. I camped next to a guy who had the rack system you describe. He had a fairly large aluminum boat on a trailer that rode above his truck bed & cab. I watched him load & unload. Seemed fairly simple. He had no complaints. Loked a tad top heavy IMHO. I think the brand was "Eddie Loader" BTW We fish three nicely out of our car top aluminum using an electric trolling motor

RE: Gas or electric water heater

Propane when boondocking or we need quick recovery. Other times electric as it is already paid for

RE: Recommendations for a Toad??

Have you sat in a smart car? More room than one might think. Perhaps an older Jeep Cj 5?

RE: trailer rock

I hve noticed over many years of camping that the rock increases the longr we stay. Starts out minimal increases. I chock both sides and do one complete revolution of the crank handle after touch down. Not sure if this is correct?

RE: Good read for every camper.

Some people make camping miserable by thinking only of what they want to do. It is a simple fact and writing articles will not change this. With the increase in populatiry of camping and the need for electronics the problem will continue. Outside music, TV, then throw alcohol into the mix. Been there and left because of this. More and more I bck pack and leave RV at home.

RE: Can I paint cooktop with BBQ paint? Or perhaps enamel paint?

Try a few treatments of oven cleaner. You might be surprised. Let it sit over night. Worst case you end up painting. However, if you use high temp paint I doube it will last when cleaned.

RE: Anyone towing their camping trailer with a RZR or UTV?

As a kid I towed my dad's fishing boat with my Kawasaki 100 with hitch strapped to the frame. That is until "the incident" LOL Just curious if the owners book gives towing specs? It might just work or not

RE: How do you handle bad campgound power

No EMS. So ignorance is bliss for many years. Seriously 5 volts is probley marginal. Happy Trails

RE: Adding shelves, organizers

Yes as previously suggested. Also anchor screws in adition to previous suggestion. Make sure you know the exact depth of your wall and tape off the drill bit so you avoid going through the exterior wall. I added shelves in my HTT and works well.

RE: Roll Up Hose

Thanks for posting on this. I have looked at them but reviews pretty much back up your findings. May I ask do you use a pressure regulator at the faucet end of the hose? You, and others, mentioned not doing well under extended pressure. I have used traditional RV hose for years on a plastic spool I found. Happy Trails

RE: Manufacturer poor quality control caused a flood

Welcome to the forum. Sorry to hear about your quality, or lack of, issue. Sadly they are common in the industry. I hve seen video footage of RV asembly and seems to be all about speed. Little pride in workmanship or attention to detail. It would be cheaper to slow down and take some pride. But what do I know? As previously mentioned factory warranty should take care of it all. Hopefully in a timely manner so as not to cut into your camping time this season

RE: Purchasing a used TT from dealer

I saved easily hundreds of dollars by having the dealer hook up to water & power prior to my comming to do the final walk through. Even though they assured me it had been gone over. I found two broken water lines, a ruptured water heater, bad batteries and a missing ousside stove upon pick up. How motivated would they have been to fix anything after the sale? Not very. IMHO Coachman is an upper middle market unit. Is the fridge working? Do the holding tanks hold? Furnace, Oven, water heater? Check for water damage everywhere. Ask them to do a pressure test for leaks. Best of luck

RE: Dirty trim.

I agree with the previous. Just replace it and inspect while it is off. It amuses me how qyickly all that plastic junk turns yellow. So many RV manufacturer's buy their vent covers, trim, utility doors from the same company that aparently is all about maximum profits and minimal quality. They could spend more and put some UV protectant into the mix. But why? We keep buying their cheap stuff aside from Airstream anyway

RE: Finally Took the Plunge

Congratulations. Always exciting to get a new rig. I am still saving up for my new one. Almost there. I suggest finding an empty parking lot and getting to know your trailer prior to first trip. Back it up and get a feel for it. Happy Trails
Oasisbob 03/28/16 01:43pm Toy Haulers

Hmmm seems a mixed group of yea and no on this. I wonder if it is still an option? Should have asked sales guy. Hate talking with them. Really don't think I would buy a new TT without one. Atleast for us as we dry camp most of the time.
Oasisbob 03/25/16 10:09am Travel Trailers

Been patiently saving up for a new trailer purchase. A Coachman Clipper 17 BH Of the inventory I have checked seems the trend is for no ovens. We use ours often. Salesman tells me surveys were taken and most never use them. Is this true or just a cost cutting measure?

RE: Appropriate generator for Viking Pop-Up RV?

He may be able to tun AC on one EU2000. Try before you buy

RE: Appropriate generator for Viking Pop-Up RV?

Go quality. I suggest either a Honda Eu 2000 or Yamaha equivelent. Both are well made, quiet and reliable. You can buy cheaper but will be louder and far less reliable. Please go quiet. Your neighbors will thank you. Nice to be out in the great outdoors. Not so nice to have to listen to a generator. Ya know what I mean? Best of luck
