RE: Best Toad?

The reason I think transfer cases are rare is because I am uninformed and that is why I am asking here. I am replacing my Ram diesel because I sold my 5er. I need a daily driver I can tow my boat with and use behind the A. Do be aware that the newer Wrangler 2-door (JK) and the 4-door (JKU) and really all Wranglers have some limitations on towing. A 2-door can range from 1,000-2,000# and the 4-door from 1,000-3,500# I tow my boat with mine but when loaded I am right near my max. My Jeep is my daily driver and I LOVE it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/jeepboat.jpg width=640

RE: 2007 Winnebago View 24J roof damage

Did you fix it yourself? I didn't fix it as it was an insurance claim on the guy that hit the power line that dropped 4 power lines on my RV (and others). One of the great things about Winnebago is the wiring diagrams are online and you can find the parts and numbers. My gut says the antenna was ripped off but the base and wiring are still ok. I'd tear into it and see how the end of the wiring looks, then you can probably order a base, caulk and new antenna and be good to go. I'm pretty sure this is the Antenna you need. However, agree 100% with the steps that Mich F have given and his last sentence.

RE: 2007 Winnebago View 24J roof damage

Allen, on my 07 Sightseer that's about where the outside radio antenna is mounted. If you have an outside stereo that could be it or if the inside one is mounted in that area. Here is a pic of it, this was after some power lines had fallen on my RV thus some of the damage. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/rv_roof.jpg width=640

RE: LED lights on awning won't turn on

Are you on battery power or shore power (plugged in)? What is your batter setup? How many? How old?

RE: 15000 lb Toy Hauler Braking Question

drmopar - According to wiki, since I'm to tired to find a 2008 owners manual, the "Ford 'built into the dash' TBC provides smooth braking even when pulling up to a 15,000 lb 4-axle conventional (receiver mounted) or 26,000 lb 4-axle 5th Wheel (bed/frame mounted) trailer."

RE: Running generator while driving

A toy hauler generator will or should have priority for fuel level over the fuel station. But most haulers seem to have the fuel tank near the rear of the hauler and the generator up front, so some significant distance for the fuel line to run. That's a good distance for a fuel pump suck or push fuel to. Knowing about the problems that have talked about over the years with fuel tanks and generators I can see some having a problem running while traveling. As to the cause, wow, lots of things. Where is the fuel line pulling from, is sloshing fuel letting air get sucked into the line? Is there debris in the tank that's getting in the carb? Wouldn't take much for the carb to run dry and shut down. I have no idea how you trouble shoot that if the generator only shuts down while in motion.

RE: Running generator while driving

We did it with our Raptor on hot days and we do it with our motorhome now.

RE: toy hauler that looks like a utility trailer

FR makes the Work and Play and the Work and Play Catalyst, the Catalyst is a higher end unit. No doubt the base are nicer but still a solid unit just not as spartan looking now.

RE: Will high temps and humidity do and damage to a camper?

I live in WA but was just out in Mid-Missouri on Monday, friends showed us their RV and right there in the middle was a dehumidifier. Outside was miserable hot and muggy but inside was comfortable. They had run a drain line under the counter and through the storage compartment so they don't have to empty the tank frequently. If I was living their again I'd either have an indoor storage, I recall seeing them when we lived there before or I'd be running an electric dehumidifier.

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

Forest River lists 2 Stealth dealers in WA... There are at least two more, might be worth checking. I've never purchased from either, but have been on both lots and never left with a slimy feeling from the sales guys. Broadmoor RV & Truck 9145 St. Thomas Dr. Pasco, WA 99301 509-545-4776 RnR RV Center 13915 W. Sunset Highway Airway Heights, WA 99001 509-244-5888

RE: Fleetwood Gearbox Delamination

One of my neighbors bought another brand that had some bad spots, probably delam as well. He had the whole front covered with diamond plate. Looks intense now but he said as long as he maintains the seal around the edges he should be good to go. The good thing is if its only small spots it probably won't grow, the damage is already done. Another RV owner I talked to while camping had some small spots and he sanded them down and then ended up putting a vinyl sheet over it, like for vinyl lettering. Almost looked like it belonged on the RV from the factory.

RE: Toyhauler weights

I think the manufacture's weight numbers have gotten better. Many dealers will weight them, but some play games. If you are concerned make the sale contingent on the weight numbers and have it weighed at at CAT scale or the dealership might have the portable pads.

RE: Fleetwood Gearbox Delamination

That dates back to the 2004-05, and fixed the issue around November 2004. From memory it was a manufacturing problem. The archives have a lot of posts about this issue. Of course Fleetwood closed no longer makes any trailers now. Are you looking to buy one?

Toy Hauler Buyers FYI... Jayco sells to Thor

Today, July 1 2016 it was announced that Thor had acquired Jacyo RV. From what I've read the management team will remain in place, it will be interesting to see what changes take place. Jayco and it's subsidiaries were the few that still offered a 2-year warranty. Marks the end to a very large family owned business. Thor Industries buys Middlebury-based Jayco for $576M

RE: How long before buying a toad

We've had our Class A nearly 10 years, still no toad. We tend to stationary camp; used to ATV and we have a boat. Have Jeep Wrangler now and sometime in the next year I'll set it up to tow behind. We have taken it sometimes, but after doing the good ol' cost-benefit analysis it was cheaper to have my wife drive it then to buy everything to tow it. We just have higher priorities for our money right now.

RE: mounting a portable gen in a gen housing on TH - why not?

The exhaust extension is a concern. That will put more back pressure and I can see that resulting in shorter life. I've used one of the Gen-turi RV units, it doesn't any back pressure since it's the warm exhaust that flows up the "chimney". Above all you want to make sure that you are not getting exhaust fumes inside the RV. Check the location of your C0 detector and consider mounting one in the bedroom closer to the generator area.

RE: 2003 totoya sr5

From the 2003 Tacoma owners manual. http://www.ttguide.net/images/books/1/4/index.55.gif Your vehicle is not designed to be dinghy towed (with four wheels on the ground) behind a motorhome. NOTICE Do not tow your vehicle with four wheels on the ground. This may cause serious damage to your vehicle.

RE: Fuzion Black tank leak

Dealer is going to do the job. They did contact Keystone and there are no records of which tanks are in which units. Yikes, how sad is that they have no idea of what parts they slap in an RV. Then again having owned a couple Keystone products I'm not totally surprised. Glad you got the part number and getting it taken care of.
