RE: Terrible workmanship in our new trailer

BIGGEST PROBLEM with RV's is POOR QUALITY CONTROL and they don't seem to care. I purchased a brand new motorhome years ago and had 5 pages of problems, I repaired 99% of them and spent over 40 hours in labor. It's a shame because its the one thing that can be controlled and save a lot of disappointment and frustration. And it is not limited to any specific brand, you just has to be a well informed buyer and do all the research the best you can. That's where this forum helps. Also mine was the last one built before the Thanksgiving break, production really slacked off. I finally got fed up with it and sold it and am happy with my new little trailer.

RE: Looking for 1st travel trailer

Congratulations, you should have no problem towing. I have a 2016 4Runner and tow a Coachmen Clipper 17bh I just bought. Good Luck!

How do you Deal with Test Drivers when Selling?

Going to be selling my class C, wanted to know those of you who have sold motorhomes how do you handle it when a prospective buyer wants to drive it? I just worry about the inexperienced person behind the wheel! Thanks! Dave

Advice On Toyota Forerunner Towing ?

My son has a 2013 Toyota Forerunner with a 4.0L and 5,000 lb tow capacity. He has been looking at the Micro Minnie 1706fb trailer with a dry weight of 2980 lb. If he keeps the gross trailer weight at around 3600 lb would this be a safe weight to tow and controllable or is it asking to much? Thanks!

RE: Question on Number of Solar Panels

I have overestimated my use of amp hours, after rechecking the figures I am closer to 35 to 50 amp hours per day, so I am going to install the 400 watt kit which will give me about 2.2 amps during indirect sunlight and use my sears battery charger off the generator when needed. If the winters are rough I will just bring the batteries home for the winter and keep them on the battery tender, being I won't be able to get up there when its that bad.

RE: Question on Number of Solar Panels

I forgot to add that I also have a Yamaha 3000iseb generator so charging them would not be a problem during the winter months when they come up short. I don't go too often in the winter and usually just for long weekends. Just thought the 400 watts(over the 300 watts) would put out an extra amp or so to keep the batteries maintained when I am not there. I am right up against the side of a mountain and would have to go out 500 feet to get sun, but it returns on my side from mid-March to mid-November.

Question on Number of Solar Panels

I have a 24'stationary travel trailer that I want to install solar on. I plan on using 2 GC-2 batteries (230ah)in series to provide 12 volts with 230 AH, which I know only 40-50% of that is usable. Being up against a mountain I do not receive direct sunlight from November to Mid-March so I wanted to know which kit would be better to install. I have the option to install either a 300 watt kit (3 panels) or a 400 watt kit (4 panels), but wasn't sure if the 400 watt kit would be overkill or be better for the indirect sunlight months. My average use is about 75-90 amp hours per day. Thanks in advance! Dave
