RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

Personally I'm opposed. I live in WA but I rarely ever camp in the State. I've seen the State close campgrounds that I could/would have used to keep ones open on the other side of the State (supposedly) and I've seen other groups step in to run them and usually run them better. Inslee is already looking at a carbon tax and other taxes in his grand scheme of things. I pay one of the highest gas taxes in the State but have some of the worst roads in the country. Now he wants to target RV owners; even though when I camp I don't just see RVs using the campgrounds. Before I can be supportive of any tax scheme like this our State needs to get our house in order. Deal with the proper funding of schools then get serious about the waste and abuse within the other departments. We've got a multimillion dollar tunnel project that is eating up money every day. Washington could learn a lot from Oregon about proper park funding. Instead the Legislature and the Governor ignores the will of the people time and time again. Hello $30 car tabs anyone? It really doesn't matter if you ask me, the legislature had to deal with the The McCleary v State ruling, until that is addressed I don't think anything else will be brought up for serious consideration.

RE: Warranty

As stated extended warranties can be a profit center for the dealership. The fine print can be a deal breaker, and if the warranty requires you to pay up front for work and seek reimbursement it seems all the more likely you can be turned down. These warranties are almost always negotiable. Don't wait till you sit down with the finance guy, negotiate as part of the sale. The $2200 can be cut down a lot, maybe 50%. In my case we negotiated the price down and went for it. Within about 4 years the fridge went belly up. Dealer pretty much took care of everything, in the one claim alone we more then paid for our warranty between the cost of the fridge and installation. Then we had our converter go out, I was now ahead of the game before the warranty expired. Good investment? That's questionable, but coming up with the cost of the fridge/install right before a trip could have been a problem.

RE: Hauling ATV In Truck Bed

mackyb I've not owned your specific hitch so I can't say how you go about doing it. But I've never come across a 5er hitch that was difficult to remove from the bed of a truck. Your owners manual should go over this, if not check with your dealer. There isn't all that much weight left hanging so for a day or two it shouldn't be a problem to leave it hanging. I wouldn't let anyone play under it just to be safe.

RE: Hauling ATV In Truck Bed

Instead of leaving it in the bed, leave it attached to the hitch on the trailer. Disconnect from the bed, raise the nose of the trailer and drive away. Leave the hitch there and when you come back just back in, release the hitch and adjust and lock in place.

RE: WooHoo Jayco

That's great, most manufacturers seem to run the other way as soon as you're out of warranty.

RE: Second Vehicle Fee

Almost all campgrounds that allow off road bikes or ATVs make it very clear they are to be ridden to access the trails, not ridden around camp. They are not for going between sites to visit your friends. Many campgrounds that have no-ATV/MX rules will not allow you to unload them as they think you may try to ride or they start getting complaints, even if you don't ride them. We ran into this at a State campground in Utah while we overnighted in Ogden, host gave us a good 5 minute lecture even though I told him repeatedly that we were just passing through and staying for the night. I agree with the others on the 2nd vehicle fee, but keep in mind that parks are lean on budgets and looking to make extra money any way they can. If you unload it they very well may try to charge you the fee. If it's an on road vehicle and unloaded they probably can charge you, they can't try to keep track of who's going in/out like the used to.

RE: Gold Wing Trike

Not sure the length or width is an issue, you just need to measure to confirm that. However some owners of other bikes bottom out when loading.

RE: opions on this TH please

BigBlockTank has some good points. I'd say there is Option C too - Repo. Something about that unit makes me wonder if it's a Repo. You don't find many units that are furnished, in fact it seems a tad bit creepy to buy a unit with other people's stuff already in it.

RE: garage door ramp.

Without knowing the size and type of damage it's tough to recommend anything. If the surrounding area is still solid and weight baring capable then maybe just a piece of diamond plate is all you need. I just don't know.

RE: built in generators

Some on board generators are quieter then others. The Onan 5500 is one of the quiet ones. Friends had an Onan 4000... that wasn't one of the quieter ones, but nothing like a contractor grade generator either. The advantages of onboard are considerable; resale is usually better with one, they are with you and ready to go, you don't have to go outside to fire up your generator and finally you have a larger gas tank so you don't need to refill it. There are times when we traveled with our Raptor we ran the generator to cool things off before we arrived.

RE: Tongue jack, anyone replaced yours ?

I replaced a 2500 lb. jack with a 3500 lb. model. Don't skimp on the capacity since you are usually lifting both the front of the RV and the back of the TV. I'll second this. Toy Haulers are heavy, buy the largest one you can find.

RE: Heritage One Ground Control?

I'd never even heard of them until your post. I'd be leary to be honest. They started production and were shut down around the first of July 2010. They only had 2 lines, Ground Control and Due West. Though most all RV us the same parts, a company that doesn't last long usually isn't a sign of quality building and construction. Unless you're very mechanical and can do your own detailed inspection I'd keep looking.

RE: Attaching stuff to walls in garage. How?

I tried contacting KZ to find the stud spacing on my unit. They said they do not maintain any plans and that I would need to use a stud finder. Yep that's the normal response. I think all they do is build a jig and go from there. I lucked out and go some plans off the net for a Raptor but I didn't trust them. Wait until you have a cool morning dew on your RV and you can see the studs on the outside, then mark and measure.

RE: Building a Bunk Ladder

I ran a search from 1 year ago and beyond for you. Results here. There was some discussions a few years ago about this, our 05 Raptor came with a god awful aluminum ladder, and many folks had purchase or built their own. Hopefully some of those ideas and discussions are in that search.

RE: Adding either electric or Manual jacks in front of tires

The JT strong arms are really great plus X chocks and the unit is very solid. This is what you see on many Toy Haulers.

RE: First camp in fuzion 342 questions

We always have the fridge turned on several days before we actually leave. Putting a load of warm food in a non pre-cooled fridge takes a long time to cool down. We have a lot of prefrozen food to load in after its cooled down, this helps out a lot. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I've found the fridge/freezer needs at least 48 hours to get to temp when it's warm. We place bottles of water in the freezer, they should be frozen solid with in the 48 hours. If I need to accelerate the process I place frozen bottles of water in the fridge/freezer and a fan in the fridge, that usually can cut the time down considerably.
