RE: Will any th haul a wrangler?

We are currently working on a deal for a Voltage 3818. We have been told that it will handle the weight of our 2014 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon (5000 pound, four door). Call the factory, verify this. Personally I'd want it in writing myself. Specs online say Cargo Capacity 4,797# then another says 5,344#, so I don't know which is accurate. But if your Rubi is 5,000# (which is realistic) that leaves you either being over capacity or with in 344# of meeting the cargo capacity - that's for everything in the RV too including food, water, waste, etc. I couldn't find any thing about ramp weights, again get it in writing from the factory. That's also a lot of weight behind the vehicle, I'd sure want to make sure before I bought that it didn't adjust the pin weight too.

RE: 08 Gearbox electrical questions

That bundle of wire is bizarre, did you trace it back to the converter? Like something was just removed? Do you have 2 converters? I can't say I've ever run across an RV with two before.

RE: Adding a happijac sofa

Did you contact Happijac directly? They may not sell direct but I'd bet they can tell you who can. www.happijac.com USA (801) 544-2585

RE: Tire dealers in BC, Washington state or Oregon.

Unless you have a Les Schwab or a Toyo tire dealer you trust I'd go a different route. Most of the Tire Factory stores still name brand tires like Michelin, BFG, Goodyear, etc. Once you know where you're going you can start calling with your tire specs and get quotes. Once you find a good deal make sure they have them in stock and hold them so you're not stuck around waiting for them to be transferred in from another location or warehouse.

RE: interested in front bed short toyhauler..slimming down

Thanks, eclipse is forest river? Any frame issues? Eclipse is not part of the Forest River, Thor or any other RV empire. They are still an independent manufacture located in Riverside, California. At the top of the Toy Hauler forum you'll find The Complete List of Toy Haulers, and links to manufactures you can check out to find what looks best for you.

RE: Network bios limits exceeded

Passed it along to Admin, figure on Easter Sunday it may not get noticed right away. Thanks for the heads up.

RE: Pin weights

Sounds about right, sadly many dealers say it will happen and it doesn't in all cases. A lot depends on the weight of the toys and where the water/black/grey tanks are located at.

RE: 08 Gearbox electrical questions

Stereo sounds like its a 110v unit, which is strange most I've seen are all 12v like you're average car stereo. If you can let us know the brand and model perhaps we can verify. As for the TV & other outlets, yes it's totally normal. Those are 110v AC you're batteries produce 12v DC. You can buy an inverter to take the 12v DC into 110v AC, but depending on the item it can quickly drain your batteries if you don't have a several installed. You can't effectively change every outlet, but an inverter properly placed could power your TV. A good place to start learning about all of this is, The 12volt Side of Life. We try to limit TV when we dry camp, but an iPad with a movie or laptop can help out too.

RE: Thor palazzo33.3 vs Forest River Legacy 340BH ???

Kevin your best bet. Call your dealer or call Forest River. Since they all say "subject to change" I personally would make sure you won't accept one with it.

RE: Coos Bay 4/15 - 4/19

Nice! I was wondering if your district took a mid winter break.

RE: Coos Bay 4/15 - 4/19

nw what school district are you in? I thought most of WA State was on the same Spring Break. You've got the weather situation right, almost always nicer mid April.

RE: wildcat trail?

Interesting, competition is a good thing. Polaris makes a nice rig but they need the competition to get their prices realistic IMHO. I'm of the mind set to wait until they update it, so they find the mistakes and problems, basically let the first adopters be the guinea pigs.

RE: 2007 Gearbox 260FS

Can you post up a photo and dimensions? Somebody might recognize it from another RV perhaps.

RE: Looking for a owners manual for a 2005 Fleetwood S1 Scorpion

Bill, they won't. They threw the TT/5er/Popup owners over the cliff when they closed up and were then born again as a Coach company. Pretty frustrating they did that to owners, and honestly gave them a huge black eye in my book. While I understand not providing warranty support, their name is still Fleetwood they should have helped out where they could.

RE: Hankook AH11 tires...

Decision time. Need new tires, 245/70R19.5 Quote for 6 new Hankook AH11 out the door price, $2621 ($436 each) or can go the Goodyear or Micheline route for about another $800. Depressing, but inevitable.

RE: Looking for a owners manual for a 2005 Fleetwood S1 Scorpion

Call Fleetwood at 800/322-8216. They havea good service department that will help you. They may have one for new motorhomes but they've all but abandoned the trailer owners. You'r better of using a search engine to search for each product owners manual you have in your RV. Very few actually have a manual for the whole RV operation.

FYI this is a thread from June 2013.

RE: toy haulers and horses

Since the OP has replied and thanked everyone already and since the last horse/toy hauler thread got closed I'm going to shut this one down too.

RE: Is a longer camp site needed for back ramp

It depends... In some State sites they forbid you from unloading onto or parking on anything but pavement. Other dispersed sites it doesn't matter. As other said we often unloaded before we backed in, but if you're blocking the road you won't make to many friends. Most sites will have some sort of unloading area if that is the case.

Back in 2009 one of our members, richheck wrote this bit and I found it to make a lot of sense. Just a simple matter of physics, as you drop the leverage point down around 16 inches with the gooseneck you are changing the fulcrum point also. This creates greater motion against the pin box connections (i.e. the frame work), whereas with the conventional hitch the lowest point is the pin connection area. I work in the RV industry and have seen what can happen, especially when a person takes their unit off road like pismo etc and subjects the hitch to such greater loads. Ends up tearing the hitch box off of the frame, and sometimes this is not an easy area to get to to weld up and re-support the damage So the manufacturer of your RV is stating with the dealer should have either known or verified. Your beef with your damaged RV needs to be with the installer of the product. Problem is it comes down to buyer be ware, I'd be sitting with the installer and letting them tell me how they plan on fixing my RV if I were in your shoes, but if not then you may want to contact your insurance company or write a check I'm afraid.
