RE: axle splitter

axle splitter

My sister bought a used Winnebago ERA on a Mercedes Sprinter Deisel chassis. She owns a Toyota Camry that she would like to tow behind that. Is there a way for her to have an axle disconnect installed so she could tow four wheels down? She doesn't want the hassle of a dolly.

RE: Outside refrigerator removal

They put those things in tightly. Unlike the above post, we found the extra refrigerator very handy. Especially when we were campground host in Big Bend Nat Park, a very remote mountainous region in West Texas. The nearest grocery store was 30 miles away. Walmart was an hour and a half away. I'd would want to be absolutely sure before going through the hassle for so little a space.

RE: Confused

Go sit inside both and try to imagine yourself in there when it rains with all the grandkids and DW. Also, having to set up in that rain. Then, which would you chose.

Looking to tow 8000 lb trailer with a Hemi

I am considering an 8000 lb TT (loaded weight) that I would like to pull with a 3/4 Ram with a 5.7 Hemi. I have WD and sway control on both sides. Anyone have a similar set up and do you tow okay with it.

RE: 20 lb propane tanks

I'm from Pa also, but spend winters in the South. If one doesn't use propane for heat, 40 lbs total will last for months. We pay monthly for our campground, so always have electric for the fridge and would like the convenience when out on long road trips. Since most 5th wheels come with 30's, I would like to know what others are doing as far as a similar switch to 20's goes. Thanks.

Rockwood Signiture ultra lite???

I'm considering trading for a Signature Ultra lite from Rockwood. The one we like is a 32 ft'r and has the perfect floor plan for us. Anyone know first hand about the quality of this rig? Any issues?

20 lb propane tanks

I noticed that some of the new model trailers are coming with 20 lb propane tanks like the ones they sell at Walmart and other retailers. I can see the convenience of that. Anyone change their tanks to accommodate them instead of the standard 30 pounders?

Winni Rialta

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1995-Winnebago-Rialta-21-Class-B-Volkswagen-Gasoline-Engine-Generator-Sleeps-4-/291410476794?forcerrptr=true&hash=item43d96afefa&item=291410476794&pt=RVs_Campers I saw this unit on Ebay, but not sure of the quality. It has over 90,000 mi on it. I'm a mechanic, but not looking for major issues, so other than checking the drive train, tires, etc., does anyone have experience with this unit or similar model from Winnebago? Any major issues?

goose ball hitch

I bought my truck used and it came with a goose ball hitch. I also have the jaw type 5th wheel hitch common to the rv industry. Since the G.B. is already in the truck I would like to know if there are any advatages to using the G.B. hitch. Granted, I will have to buy an adapter for around $400, but that would be the same cost to swap out those same hitches.

RE: lowering suspension

Yup, Jaxom, it's the Phantom again. I ride those other two wheels you don't see. Getting back to the topic, (since it takes so little to confuse you) the truck is a 2014.

lowering suspension

My Dodge Ram 2500 2x2 sits high. I believe it can be lowered but wondered what the consequences might be; less VWR, harder ride or something else? Curious.

quality gone down hill.

I bought a Funfinder because I believed the rep it had for quality. The first thing we had trouble with was the dinette table. It separated from its base plate. I noticed immediately that the table top had been held to the wood base solely by staples. No Glue!. I turned the whole thing upside down and laid on a good amount of Gorilla glue. I couldn't bring the trailer back under warranty because we were campground host in a very remote region of Big Bend National Park for four months. It gets better. I soon noticed that a small leak coming from beneath the shower was not a little overspill from the door opening as I had originally suspected. I opened up the access panel and could not believe what I was seeing. the drain was never connected. What ever amount of water dripped down into the drain pipe was all that went into the holding tank below. The rest seeped onto the bathroom floor. The problem turned out to be the sub floor. It was not cut short enough to allow the drain to be connected. I managed to cut the floor back enough to connect the drain. Did Cruiser, a family owned company, get bought out by yet another corporation thereby lowering its standards for the almighty profit?

back up camera

I was thinking about getting a wireless backup camera for my Ram pickup. Anyone have one that works well?

RE: Don't believe the combined weight ratings

Its easy to simply say the op's setup is wrong, and leave it at that. I've been towing since '85. My truck was level with the trailer. I believe there is one thing nobody here considered. As mentioned, my truck is a regular cab. The short wheel base, I believe had something to do with the poor handling of the 29 ft TT. As a 4x4, it sits high. I tested the handling of the (reg cab) truck on an open road by zig sagging and found it to be unstable as a solo vehicle. The truck was recently checked out and nothing was amiss. The short wheel base and high center of gravity had everything to do with how it handled the trailer. Short of a Hensely hitch, I don't see how a conventional hitch, WD and sway control could have fixed that. The Ram, as per Dodge specs, has a Tow Rating, (not combined rating) of 9,000 lbs. A four door may have made the difference. (Sorry, I should have written, Tow rating not Combined)
