RE: Raptor 31sf generator question

Sounds like lazy engineering but that doesn't help you out now. Can you even access the drain plug at all? If you can't I'd say it's a warranty issue as you should be able to access it plug. As for draining the oil once the plug is removed, see if you can modify an oil funnel, but that's still make shift to solve a problem created by Keystone.

RE: out of state toyhauler purchase

My guess is you're wanting to roll the out of state taxes & fees into the loan? That might be a challenge for some smaller dealerships, but seems if you contact AZ with the VIN you could get some sort of bill from the State of AZ, but maybe not. But does seem like the dealer should be able to communicate with the DMV in AZ if you can figure out who they need to talk with. Dealers in CA have figured out how to do deliveries and registrations in other States so it can be done.

RE: Cab/Frame breaking up- 2009 WW SS2500!!!!

We've maintained this thread, WW Repairs over the years to help people out. It's a lot to read but some great info from other WW owners. The lawsuit pages are now gone, you're 100% on your own at this point. The good news is there are some repairs that can be made if the damage isn't to bad, the bad news is that repairs are not free.

RE: FL county tells resident:keep barbecue smoke in own yard

Ugh! Stories like this drive me crazy. My guess is there is much more to the story, like neighbors behaving badly. As for a "commercial" BBQ it looks like a pretty ordinary barrel BBQ. I do midnight cooks on my smoker, but after one of my neighbors joked about the smell all night I was smart enough to take some fresh hot pulled pork to the neighbors. Sadly knowing your neighbors seems to be a thing of the past for many. :(

RE: Onan dies in the Heat

You've been given some good advice. I will say from the fuel pump issues I had with my 5500 I'm not sure that's the issue or not. It's very odd that it's having issues while hot which makes me think it's more related to your altitude setting. But few other things. While looking at the generator itself you can look at the switch for the number of blinks, and get the fault code. Knowing that can really help. I'd also check your oil to make sure it's not dirty as well as your air filter.

RE: Headboard in slideout in 5th wheel

Most slide outs have very limited insulation. As a result with the headboard nestled in the slide out it can be downright chilly if you're camping in cold weather. The plus is that most have small portal windows so you can get some fresh air too.

RE: Toy Hauler Pictures

New to me 2010 Desert Fox 21. Oh well, can't get pic to post. Try the upload tool on the 1st post. Makes it a breeze.

RE: What the heck does this switch do? LOL

OK so any suggestions on how to maybe test this switch to find out what it does? Have you followed the wires from the switch? Does the fuel pump work depending no the location of the switch?

RE: What the heck does this switch do? LOL

I used to have a Thor toyhauler, and that switch under the fridge was the battery disconnect. Pulled out was on and pushed in was off Bam! Great to know thanks for helping out!

RE: What the heck does this switch do? LOL

Owning a ThorCA isn't a bad thing, just need to Okay, is that an incomplete thought or are you just messing with us. :) And, through Heartland, Thor now own CruiserRV (Viewfinder and FunFinder). Thor makes very pretty motorhomes. That's as far as I'm willing to go on the subject. That was my temporary ADD kicking in, to many things going on to stay focused - thanks for catching that. I agree about the motorhome comment too.

RE: What the heck does this switch do? LOL

That explains alot. So much for "the most successful RV start-up". ThorCA was very big, for the California market, at the time. That was all pre-recession though. The recession devastated the toy hauler landscape, many brands were lost. I used to maintain a list of orphaned Toy Haulers as part of the complete list of toy haulers, that list was longer then the ones being made though. Today there are only 19 independents left, Forest River & Thor have bought out a bunch including Coachman, Palomino, Crossroads, Dutchmen, Heartland and KZ. Owning a ThorCA isn't a bad thing, just need to know where to get parts and how to fix some things. Thankfully not a lot of custom stuff in them like you find today. Overall the line seemed to fair pretty good during that era.

RE: 09 holiday ramber next lv axle replacement

I'm not sure these guys can help but I'd call them. Many Toy Hauler owners here have recommended them. SoCal RV Doctor

RE: What the heck does this switch do? LOL

Also does anyone know who is handling Thor California now that they are out of business? Thor CA is out of business. You won't get support from Thor since they shed the company back in 2008. It became MVP which went belly up in 2009. Genesis is now the company occupying the old space with a couple of the original owners of MVP and another is or was part of Pacific Coach Works. You'll get better support here I think. If you need parts, try a local dealership as they may be able to source the parts. If anything was custom made then you'll need to have it remade. What are you looking for?

RE: Side load toy hauler

There maybe a few out there, they hit the market a few years ago then died off. The one listed above is no longer in production either. Most side loads were only designed for one ATV. The Raptor 384pk is a 5er with wide enough ramp for two though.

RE: Interior width

Yes it's pretty common that you can fit in two Utility ATVs in the 102" wide haulers. The door is your limiting point, but even with that it's pretty easy. The other area to watch out is if you have rear beds as the rails can stick out. In all cases measure your ATV and the space between, you should fit. In my case I pulled one in a bit further then the second in place and move the first one back a bit. If you're worried about scuffing up the sides, use an old carpet scrap or cardboard.

Saw one of these at Wal-Mart the other day. Full House by DRV http://drvfullhouse.com/ Thanks I do have them on the list. Under Thor.

RE: Jayco Seismic Wave or Keystone Fusion Chrome?

I also love the fact that both Jayco and KZ offer two year warranties. I wonder how much longer KZ will offer 2 year warranties now that they are owned by Thor?

RE: 2008 Winnebago 35J storage bin latch/lock??

These are a problem area. Do keep them lubed up as best you can and that seems to help. You can buy replacement plastic ones of Amazon and Camping World. But If you can find them getting a metal one means the plastic plunger won't break again.

RE: Gig Harbor, WA to Prosser, WA

I agree with enblethen's route. It really is the shortest and quickest. Hwy 18 can back up bad, I'd avoid it during the rush hours if you can. If you take off about 9-10AM you're probably in a bit of a sweet spot. But if there is an accident then it's a crap-shoot. Try the Waze app on your smart phone, it can d good job of alerting you to traffic back ups and give you alternatives. Do be aware that Prosser like where I live is heading back to triple diget temps. Are you coming over for the Water Follies?
