RE: Oil absorbent mats?

Way to technical guys. First time I can think I've heard that cardboard is to technical ;) Though your idea works too!

I would check with Pullrite as they have indicated lube types and maintenance depends on year models. I will add that if you don't follow their recommendations they may not warranty their product too. Been there done that. When I bought mine they recommended using a silicone lubricant (goop) as I recall now, but some where along the way they switched to Slip Plate. Of course there was not official correspondence about that, just in their newsletter. Long story, but follow their recommendation on what to use.

RE: lookig at 2007 3611 Damon Outlaw toy hauler

We looked at them when they first came out. One walk up stairs and the claustrophobia kicked in. I wouldn't be able to sit up in the bed, that was a deal killer for us.

RE: Which one grand design M-class or DRV full house

Between the two if I could afford the DRV I'd buy it in a heart beat. Grand Design makes a great unit, but as Second Chance said, the DRV is in a different class. But you pay for it. So money has to be a factor, if the DRV is to much then I think the GD is a great unit.

RE: xxxxxxxxxxx

tooldad1041, in every State I've been in there are laws about disposing of greywater. I've been in some areas that encouraged it to be spread on the dusty gravel roads, but even the they were clear no to dump near a stream. Please don't. Greywater sounds better then black water but it's still not safe to dump into any stream. Please collect it and transport to the proper disposal (sewer) system.

RE: Garage with door to living area

Just about every brand will have units with separate garage, way to many to list. For the most part you're going to be looking at units 35+ plus feet to get a separate garage. In the main Toy Hauler forum look for the Sticky, The Complete List of Toy Haulers. There you can start looking through the various brand websites and brochures.

RE: Adding a Hitch To The Trailer

Since this is not about Dinghy towing I'm moving this to the Towing forum.

RE: New battery setup

I'm not sure which model I have, but I do have a Progressive Dynamics charger, it's been a very good unit and the charge wizard is nice to have. I wish I had changed mine out years before, but only did when my other unit died.

RE: To cover my dry camp needs

The batteries are charging, but they are just a couple of old crappy car battery’s. I will be upgrading to good dual 6v setup. I was running the furnace nonstop, so I’m sure that was a big draw. I'm surprised they even lasted as long as they did. Once you have some good deep cycle batteries then you'll be fine. There is no need to separate the battery system, that will just make it more complicated. Factory converter/chargers are bad, check to see what you have first. There are better ones out there but find out what you have. I had a Progressive Dynamic Inteli-Power unit, great unit.

RE: Electric dinette shakes coming down. Normal?

Some beds use pins to lock them in place, some don't. Without knowing more it's hard to say if its a problem with that unit or just missing some pins. What year make and model was the RV? Any chance you saw the brand name on the lift system?

RE: 2001 Thor wanderer actual weight

Also RVs of that area often used the weight of the base model, they didn't recalculate or weigh the actual RV based on the options that were added. So like the generator which is probably near the tongue wasn't counted along with awnings, etc. IMHO this was near criminal as many people bought something that weighed far more than their truck could safely handle. Thankfully today you don't see the same level of games being played, but it's still in your court to verify. I figure it's like Ronald Regan's line, Trust but Verify!

RE: Which option would you choose? New 2018 vs used 2018?

For me the roof is the biggest deciding factor; pretty sure even the most basic Winnie comes with a Fiberglass roof while my quick check of a couple Thor's showed a TPO Roof. I've had our Winnebago for over 10 years and have had no major issues. That said that was 10 years ago and things change. The other plus to Winnebago is they have their online access to floorplans; plumbing and other plans all online and available to download if you ever need them.

RE: Attitude/Lippert Coupler issues

Been there done that, but mine was a PullRite. I couldn't uncouple it, eventually I removed the pins from the bed and left the hitch hanging. Then I was able to work on it, finally I got the jaw to release and was able to lower it in to the bed of my truck. A good hammer is what did it. But in the end I found that the head had locked up and had to get a new one. I won't go into details but I did not end up with a warm fuzzy feeling about PullRite after that.

RE: Those who have a ramp patio, do you really use it?

I made my own with our Raptor, used it a couple of times. If I was backed up to a nice river or ocean beach I'd use it more, but that just wasn't how we camped. I don't think I'd spend a couple grand on one though.

RE: Age of RV for volunteer positions

The only way you'll know is if you ask. From my experience at some of the parks in Oregon I'd say it shouldn't be an issue. I think during times of the year they are challenged to get enough volunteers. But the homeless issue in Oregon has become a big issue, so they may have had to clamp down a lot more now.

RE: Keystone Design Issues

They could put in a small LP/12v/110v fridge, Pop up and Class B Campers have them, but they aren't as cheap as a dorm fridge. Score one for cost savings. I'd say the vast majority of Class A's I've seen have a box that can send the signals to the other TV with the press of a button, it's a wiring challenge but it works. Score two for cost savings, no box and they didn't have to hire somebody that knew what they were doing to install the wiring. As for the multiple connections, there should be one for Satellite and one for Cable/TV. So this is score three for cost savings. But like above, this is also so they don't have to have good wiring diagrams and a person that knows what they are doing IMHO. Sadly with all the glitz and glitter they put in the RVs it's a distraction for issues like you've found... until you are home and want to use them.
