RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

Glad you gave them a call to get things resolved. As has happened before there is an assumption that warranties are like automobiles, but they are not. As much as the manufacturer says you can take it anywhere to get serviced, and you can, but you are at the mercy of that dealer. Consider that a dealer has customers that it sold to and those folks are needing service who do you think they will help first? Well I'd hope that if I bought from them they take care of me first and non-customers second. That's what happened to you. Be it right or wrong it's how things go out. This is one of the factors when buying out of your area, out of state or across the Country. Bottom line though is Eclipse stepped up and took care of you, like they should have. I'd be giving them some serious kudos, they could have gone the other route - and many manufactures have. Congrats on getting service lined up, good luck!

RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

You really need to pick up the phone and give Eclipse a call. Talk to them about your problems (with the RV) and with the dealer you took it too. Then see what other options they have without bringing it back to the plant. See if they have any mobile RV techs in your area that are approved to do warranty work. It's not likely but you never know until you call. In addition by calling you document your RV issues with them.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

Great list! http://www.oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=95 My #10 have stopped in here, decent sites, sand access, no hook ups, close to Florence I'll disagree but that is only to mention a few things. Honeyman is a great campground for ATVs in the off-season, October-April. During that time the H Loop gate is opened up for direct access to the sand dunes. All the sites in H loop have water & power, some of the sites also have sewer hook-ups. The H Loop sites were expanded a few years ago, adding extra asphalt to make parking wider allowing the RV & ATVs. They are pretty assertive about keeping ATVs off the dirt. Sand Lake - never been there, never intend to go, very small, way over crowded, and too many accidents w/ injuries and deaths, too many people in a very small riding area - just my opinion. I agree, it's not bad during the week but on weekends it's crazy busy. Been there once. They also have erected wood pole fences everywhere. This can make it next to impossible to get your larger RV into some of the sites.

RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

Dealership you took it to for service really should have been up front with you about their policy. This has become a lot more common it seems since some of the big dealers started "wholesaling" and shipping. I can't fault the local dealers wanting to take care of their customers first, but should have told you their policy up front so you could have decided. Keep in mind dealers do get paid for service work, but it doesn't cover all of their costs. Most don't pay their shop rates and set to a certain number of hours for the work. I'd call Eclipse and consider taking it down to them.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

You can also beach camp in Florence if you actually want to camp out on the dunes. There are designated camping spots just for this at the South Jetty. Be aware some sites end up under water during the winter months due to heavy rain. You also need to know about the Oregon ATV training courses which are required for ALL ATV riders as of Jan 1 2014. Getting the cards isn't difficult, but you do need to take care of it before you go. We've camped with several people that had to go into Florence at the Library to take the test and print out the certificates or they wouldn't be riding. There are exemptions, "Yes, all non-residents riding in Oregon are required to take the online ATV safety education course and carry an ATV Safety Education Card. They are exempt if they possess another state or country’s ATV Safety Education Card." www.rideatvoregon.org

RE: Electric Beds Won't Work

Few thoughts. Knowing if it's used/new (assumed used) brand/model of RV and what beds are installed can help. 20am, 30amp or 50amp won't matter as the power to the beds should be 12v. As donn0128 pointed out chances are its in the 12v system. Assuming RV is used and been sitting on a lot I'd agree the battery either needs to be charged or it's dead. The converter/charger could also be the issue, if you are plugged in you should have 12v to all the systems. Finally the beds could have issues themselves.

RE: vrv toyhauler

The fridge on the 7x20 is great under AC. With Gas the temps of the fridge can swing depending on the outside temps. It seems dependent on the overall heat outside. When its 90's the fridge is struggling under gas and I slowly see the temp rize to near 60 degrees which is not good for food obviously. This is not uncommon on some RVs. But there are things you can do. Here are a few threads that might help you out. You also might want to post over in the Tech Issues forum.

May I know about Palomino? You'll be best served to post a new thread in the Toy Hauler forum asking for thoughts about the Palomino line up.

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.
