RE: Thor Wanderer Owners Manual

Old-Biscuit is spot on, that era most the "manuals" were just a collection of the various parts that were installed. There is very little unique to the Wanderer. The best help you'll find is to ask questions here, members can usually help you out. The Wanderer was made by ThorCA and eventually sold off, it went through a couple of owners and name changes the folded completely. You won't find Thor has anything on that rig as it was part of ThorCA.

RE: Am I doing this wrong ?

We get our Class A in to some pretty tight spots sometimes. If you are equipped for camping without power and water you have a choice of a lot more sites. Nobody could believe I got our rig into the site below since the driveway down was very long and narrow, but with a couple awning pull rods we moved the branches and got it in there, two years in a row. Best site on the lake IMHO. https://s17.postimg.org/58w9mhysf/crescentlake.jpg width=640

RE: Thru bolting a motor cycle chock

I didn't remove my corrugated plastic, but I did cut 3 sides so it could hinge open. No insulation in mine and unless they tell you there is some most consider the corrugated plastic to be the "insulation" When I was finished I used 2 zip ties and some very sticky black tape (like Gorilla tape) to hold it in place.

RE: Heartland Pioneer Toy Hauler

Are you sure you are looking at the Pioneer? They are not toy haulers, at least not on the Heartland web site. Actually they have 3 models of toy haulers in the travel trailer class, though they don't list them under the toy hauler class. Heartland Travel Trailers

RE: Coeur d'Alene Id to Biggs Junction. Or

I drive that leg pretty frequently. I like the WA side when heading west bound. I usually decide pretty close to the cut off for Hwy 14. If there is a lot of truck turning off then I go to Oregon. Now that Oregon raised the speed limits Hwy 14 seems to have a tad less traffic, but keep an eye out for the cars that will want to pass you, some take some crazy risks.

RE: Pullrite Super glide hitch

While I doubt it's the same issue I had, I share just as an FYI. I had the hitch head opening spread a bit, made disconnecting a huge challenge (like what you had). After contacting the folks at PullRite they confirmed that I had to much separation. You might measure the outside opening and back about half to the back and see if they are the same. If they are off, contact PullRite for help.

RE: wrangler recommended braking unit

WHY moving to dinghy towing...no dinghy. Towing jeep with class c. What you are doing is called a Dinghy or toad, basically any time you pull a motorized vehicle behind another vehicle like a motorhome it's a Dinghy. Welcome aboard! If you don't have a tow bar already, I'd suggest checking out the NSA Ready Brake But you'll find a lot of discussions about various options already on the forum that may help you out too. Out of curiosity are you talking about towing a 2 or 3 door Wrangler? Have you checked your Jayco's hitch rating?

RE: fresh water tank fill, carbon 327

Testing is the only sure fire way to know. Some gravity fills have a air release vent right by the hose portion. Many will have a vent on top of the tank.

RE: Damon Outlaw 3611

Be sure to search on the Class A forum, owners of the Outlaw and Bounty Hunter seemed to chat more over there. Neither seemed very popular, but if it's in good condition and not abused. Plus I'm sure you know what to look for. Blackdiamond's comment was the one thing that stood out from some previous owners experience though they were riding bikes (Harley/Goldwing style) and they had issues with the bikes getting over the hinge portion. I see that the Spyder has a 4.5" for ground clearance, so I would defiantly check that out.

RE: Looking for a short 5th wheel Toy Hauler

I can't think of any manufacturer that makes a 25' 5er like are looking for. When under 30' they are usually bumper pulls.

RE: Traveling to view the Eclipse ?

Traffic is suppose to be a nightmare. Hwy. 101 from Florence towards Brookings is full of flag stops, signal stops and 1 lane traffic. Take 138 to 38 to 101 to miss all the road construction. Thanks I need to head north of Florence about 19 miles to Sea Perch, probably slow but plan to head fairly early and hang out in the area until the spot opens up. I don't understand why everyone in the West thinks they have to get on Highway 101 and clog it up to see the event. Since I live in Eastern WA I am partially going to the coast to cool down, we're heading into four solid weeks of 95-105 degree temps.

RE: Traveling to view the Eclipse ?

We scored a site that somebody cancelled out on the Oregon Coast at one of our favorite beach front RV Parks. Regular price, didn't try to jack up the price at all. I'm a tad nervous about the traffic, but we're heading out very early the Friday before and back later the following week. All I need is one fill up everything else we will have with us. No plans to stop and eat, we'll kick back and watch the eclipse from the campground.

RE: Sailun S637T overkill for a trailer with 10,200 gvwr?

hmmm, link did not work. Sorry about that, it's a default for new members that post links. Wish we didn't need it but the spammers have a field day otherwise. It goes away after a couple days as I recall. Welcome aboard!

RE: NE WA State - Gillette Campground (USFS)

Thanks a bit far from the Tri-Cities, but looks peaceful!

RE: Raptor toyhauler

I had a 2005 Raptor 3612. Had similar issues and even bent one of mine. They you get them out from the bottom. I watched the guys fix and replace my bent one, but not sure I can walk you through it. I think it was mounted under, but there was something that was holding that was accesible through the LP tank area too. There was only 1 motor on mine, and I recall it was mounted on the passenger side with a pin that crossed over to the other. I'll see if I can search the archives in the Toy Hauler forum. There are a few with that era of Raptor over there that might be able to help if they are not out camping. Here is a search of the archives, hopefully you find some helpful ideas. *Click Here*

RE: Thinking about a TH for full-time

It is strange living in Dallas, TX and not being able to find a large variety. Fellow Mod here, dedmiston, got a good one at Texas Direct Auto out of Houston. You might message him for more info.
