RE: new toy!

Congrats! Good luck on the loading issue, need to look at getting the edge of the ramp up a bit, that nose does look low.

RE: Free Tool May Unlock Encrypted Ransomware Files

Thanks for passing this along! One of my staff got hit with this a year or so ago. Of course the one staff person that doesn't know much about computers and oped that .zip attachment and ran it (argh!) thankfully it didn't hit the network and she just lost the files she had worked on that were not on the network drives. She learned a few valuable lessons, and I learned more about this stuff then I ever wanted to know.

RE: so where do you buy your tires?

I've bought all my tires from the local Tire Factory. I deal with the same people, I know the owner by name, no high pressure BS, they can get just about any tire but they sell the quality name brand stuff and they stand behind their work.

RE: Dogs and ATVs

I don't recommend attaching your dog to your ATV, if you roll or anything like that your dog will be hung up and unable to escape. The only way I'd consider attaching is with an extendable leash say 20-25' but I still don't recommend it. Our Golden Retriever aka Box of Rocks loved to ride on our Quads. The pad in the back may help, I've seen others just attach carpet for them to lay on and dig into a bit. In our case we had a hard box that she would ride in which kept her from moving around to much. Do put something down over the seat, once nervous their claws can dig in more then you want. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/sierra_atv.jpg

RE: Complete List of Toy Haulers

Please do keep us up on how it goes. It's hard to evaluate a new company like Genesis, the best way is hearing real owners experiences are. You've been around plenty to know how that goes. Congrats on the new rig and do share some photos once you get it!

RE: Yahoo mail . . . . unbelieveable!!!

I've owned my own domain for a number of years. For about $50/year I get my own email name, no ads and email accounts for each of my family members. I can archive my emails, move hosts whatever I want to do with them. Yahoo has moved away from their email/chat other features since they don't monetize very well.

RE: Complete List of Toy Haulers

What's the backstory here? I just placed an order for a 34 GS... My only concern is that the new company is made up of other failed companies. Thor spun off ThorCA to some ThorCA employees and became MVP back in 2010. That left several forum members with no service/support as they didn't honor the warranty. MVP started up and quickly followed in the previous foosteps, they got a cash infusion by a Chinese investor, but that investor wanted to move things in other directions, I believe it was electric cars. But he never produced the money and they went belly up, once again leaving owners and dealers holding the bag. That does not mean this new company is bad, but some of the management team was there through the process with MVP, another was with Fleetwood (also belly up). I'm hopeful they are a solid company, but worth looking into. Consider that the guys that were the leaders for the Keystone line that Thor took over, they left and created Grand Design. These leaders move around and start new companies. With the economy doing better maybe they will be a success now.

RE: Picked up my 2016 Carbon 33

What's that big round ball like antenna for? Might have trouble with bridges. But he gets amazing TV reception from Russia, China and on a good day Australia!

RE: 5th wheel hitch for 2014 Ram

I too use the B&W puck with no problems at all. Keep it simple. Learn to drive. No slider needed. I get tired of listening to people get their panties in a bunch... So yes. Its that simple. Pay attention. Learn to drive. Speaking of panties in a bunch. Glad it works for you, but for some it doesn't and that doesn't mean they are not great drivers. To quote Sergeant Hulka: Lighten up, Francis

RE: Picked up my 2016 Carbon 33

When we had our Raptor we could run 3 space heaters throughout the RV each of them set on 750 watt (low) would keep it nice and toasty. Then I'd set the furnace to a lower setting to augment the others if it got too cold and they couldn't keep up. This worked well for times we had ample power. You can burn through a lot of propane at 70 so finding a temp that keeps it warm enough and doesn't cause constant on/off is up to you.

RE: Just bought New 2914 Winnebago Sightseer 35G

On the paint and fabric no. Warranty there are a few factors. The price is negotiable, it's a large profit center for the dealership. We debated about it, negotiated and negotiated and came up with a reasonable price when we bought our Winnebago. Though generally you're better off if you put that money away, sometimes it's nice to have the coverage and not have to come up with cash if something goes wrong. In our case the dealer did all the work if we had a claim, and we had 3. Deductible was like $50. First up was the failure of our fridge just a few days before our 10 camping/boating trip. Going without wasn't really an option. Dealer found one, we went and got it to cut down on time and they had us installed and tested within 2 days, fully covered. That one item paid for the extended warranty. Then our converter/charger went belly up, covered and upgraded. We were now money ahead. Door lock had also failed early on. I wouldn't pay full price but if you can get the cost down considerably then it's a toss up at least from our experience. I could have bought a fridge, but it would have been a stinger in the pocketbook with vacation looming.

RE: New Eclipse LED Flood Lights

Sounds like good customer service!
Y-Guy 04/13/15 04:12pm Toy Haulers

Memaloose State park and the rest stop on the east bound lanes both had them. But neither show up on Trip Check now. Used to be that Oregon was pretty good about having these available. But cost cuts have eliminated most of them with all the regulations. I'd heard rumor that the druggies that dumped could cause significant damage so that was one factor in getting rid of unsupervised dump stations.

RE: Toy Hauler Cargo Dimensions "C/S" and R/S" - what?

Bit annoying to have to decipher what they meant though. But at least they are giving that information, some don't bother and then you have to email or go look at one.

RE: Toy Hauler Cargo Dimensions "C/S" and R/S" - what?

ramgunner is correct. If you look at this image of a Rag'n 20CBX http://www.pacificcoachworks.com/wp-content/uploads/20CBX-wpcf_611x294.png You'll see the wall space on the R/S (driver) is shorter then the C/S (curb/passenger side). So if you're hoping to load a wide rig all you'll have is 6'2 of space unless its able to fit within the sink cabinets then you can go up to 14'11 without an obstruction. Knowing the space from the curb side to the cabinets would be even more helpful. Cargo R/S 6'-2" Cargo C/S 14'-11"

RE: 5th wheel hitch for 2014 Ram

Just a piece of advice, though you are buying for today think of the future. A slider though more expensive assures future use.

RE: Toy Hauler Members Input Please

We're working on a few things trying to make it happen and see if we can save the knowledge base in some areas. Just waiting on some approvals before moving forward. Steve

RE: New Eclipse LED Flood Lights

Good you found the cause! I had issues with one of my timers for outdoor lights. My CFL lights would occasionally flicker, when I went to LEDs was a frequent pulse. Once I dug into things I found my old timer was totally not compatible with LEDs and was actually a fire hazard. That led to a lot of reading; garage door wasn't LED compatible, several dimmers were not. Point to all of that is you might want to check around, I bet that either they used a cheap incompatible dimmer or it's wired wrong. I found the manager/owner at BatteriesPlus really knew their stuff about LED switches. The guys at the big box hardware stores had no clue.
