RE: Bunk lights on Roo

Our Popup and Kiwi both had bunk lights, never broke but they did need to be adjusted sometimes. Here is what the clips looked like on ours. http://www.truevalue.com/assets/product_images/styles/xlarge/705087.jpg width=300

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

i assume i can pick up any gfi outlet at lowes to replace it? Pretty much but if in doubt take a photo of the back of it, so you know how it was wired and take it in to Lowes to buy a new one. Is it the last leg in the line or in the middle or the 1st? I'd also check the wiring on any other outlets on the line too.

RE: Dinghy brakes or not?

It appears that in Washington State a towed motor vehicle does not meet the legal definition of a "trailer"! If that is true, trailer braking laws do not apply! I respect your drive for facts. However, the key word in your statement is "If". Should there be an accident it would be up to the State Patrol or others and then the judicial system to decide if a vehicle that is being towed qualifies as a trailer or not. Personally, I don't plan on risking it. If I ever don't have to much to do I may take the RCW and chat with the WA State Patrol, but I don't see that happening any time soon ;)

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

You might pull a few plugs nearby see if the wiring is running to them has come loose. In the race for speed they use the backstab connectors, I've had issues with those in my rig. I went through and changed each of them to use the side wire instead. Have you replaced the plug itself? Are the lines hot?

RE: Dinghy brakes or not?

Please cite the Washington State law. While you are at it, please cite the Washington State law that gives legal definitions regarding vehicles. I think this is the section of the RCW you are asking for RCW 46.37.340

RE: Bandon To Roseburg

Try visiting http://tripcheck.org a quick look on that highway shows both delays on Hwy 42 are under 20 minutes, probably not worth routing around it. What ever you do don't take the route north that Google shows, called Coos Bay Wagon Rd. If you must go up to Hwy 38.

RE: HELP! Toy Hauler creeks, sounds like it's breaking in two!!

Weight Distribution hitch also can make a ton of noise. That's what I was thinking too. My old Equalizer WDH hitch was really bad sometimes, known issue just how they are. Did you get a 5er or pull behind?

RE: Newport to Crescent City

My personal choice is to take Hwy 22 (Salem) to Hwy 18 (Lincoln City). I've done Hwy 20 before at night, in the rain and vowed to never drive it again. Day time might be fine but the other route so much easier with fewer curves. Even Hwy 126 Eugene/Florence is better IMHO.

RE: First Toy Hauler looking for informed input

We had a 39' Raptor for the most part could get into most of the sites I wanted to, but a few places were no go. Only used the 50amp a few times, I left that beast of a cord in the storage bay and picked up a 25' 30amp cord to drag around. Very few State Parks have (had) 50am service back in 2005.

RE: Pullrite superglide Lube

I would 100% follow exactly what Pullrite says. I say that from a bad experience with them. Back in 2005-06 I had a hitch like yours, used the recommended silicone. Ended up with some major galling and head seperation. When I called PullRite I was told they had sent a newsletter stating that only dry graphite based lubricant should be used. I argued that a newsletter was not official correspondence and I had never received it, eventually they agreed to cover part of the costs to replace things, but not everything. In the end I changed rigs and lost my shorts on the hitch. So find out what hitch you have and find out exactly what they recommend. If you have one with the Delrin wear plate and blocks, use what they recommend, if not you may have issues and may not have warranty coverage.

The new Complete List of Toy Haulers

Here is newest Complete List of Toy Haulers, the only thread was over 10 years old and could no longer be updated. I’ve cut down on many of the various types of haulers and listed them all together. Now that Thor owns Jayco some 87% of all RVs are maybe either by Forest River or Thor. If you find a toy hauler not list or that has been dropped please let me know.

RE: 5'er TH with upstairs living room?

When I saw the Grand Design Momentum 376TH I told my wife that could get me back into a Toy Hauler. https://www.granddesignrv.com/sites/default/files/Momentum-376TH-071816.png width=800

RE: 2016 Tacoma

This is from the 2015 owners manual online, I looked it up for another poster previously. Doubt anything has changed for 2016, but you can find the owners manual online. 2015 Owners manual Page 233 2-5. Driving information Dinghy towing Your vehicle is not designed to be dinghy towed (with 4 wheels on the ground) behind a motor home. NOTICE To avoid serious damage to your vehicle Do not tow your vehicle with four wheels on the ground.

RE: Where to sell toad

Step one is to try to sell to an RV owner that needs one, but that pool is pretty small. If that doesn't go then you can sell as is, or you can remove the tow equipment and sell it separate. Don't forget craislist, as with any site you deal with the scammers and the low-ballers, but know what you have and what you want out of it.
