RE: 2015 Work and Play 25UDT minor issues

2) Try disconnecting the shower head, at the bottom should be a plug with probably 3 holes drilled in it - it's the water saver. Pop it off. You'll get better flow but chug through water faster.

RE: 2013 sightseer 33c wind noise

It's not a Ford issue, it would be a Winnebago issue. What type of noise are you getting? If you can describe it or take it out and try to narrow it down others might be able to help. Dealership might as well, but of course they will charge you too. When the F53 is delivered to the manufacturer it looks like this (below) everything else built on top of the chassis is up to the manufacturer, in your case Winnebago. http://www.fleetsandfuels.com/wp-content/uploads/FordF53_2008-600x377.jpg width=500

RE: Bolts in floor

That's very odd. I think you're better of starting below, see if you can tighten the nut (assuming it's below at least) you could hold the bolt from below too, depending on how much room there is. Might add a nylock nut underneath too so it doesn't back out again.

RE: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited setup opinions

I did find Rugged Ridge XHD modular bumper this evening when doing more research; looks like Blue Ox makes an adapter specifically for this bumper that bolts right through. Doh! I knew I was forgetting one I'd looked at. You're right! If you are looking at going with Extreme Terrain and if you're a member of WrangerForum.com get in touch with Ryan, aka XTRyan on the WF he might be able to get you some better pricing. Also compare the various parts prices from ET with Amazon - if nothing else may help you negotiate with Ryan a bit.

RE: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited setup opinions

I see you have a JKU yourself; what type of setup do you use? I'm still in the shopping stage, like you. I've looked long and hard the the options. Most likely I'll go with the ReadyBrute Elite tow bar w/surge braking. Bumper, I'm torn. The ones I pointed out aren't bad, but the shipping is a killer for me in the NW, you too as I see you're in Oregon. I'm strongly looking at the Tomken, mostly since I'll be going to Denver this summer and I could bring it back with me and save the shipping costs. Price is about $648 which isn't bad. Pics of it in this thread - member in the photo has one, and had it built with Blue Ox tow points. Rock Hard sells Tow Bar Adapters but there are not many bumpers that have the bolts on the outside that would accommodate those. I'd feel better about a cheaper bumper if I could mount those directly through the bumper to the Jeep. Reality is the path your looking at is probably fine, just makes me a bit nervous having an Unlimited and coming in at nearly 5,000# of weight.

RE: 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited setup opinions

The Barricade, while a nice bumper, isn't tow rated. Will it work? Probably. How long? That's the unknown factor. There are at least three bumpers that are tow rated. Both the LoD & Rock Hard have options for towing behind a motorhome, I'd give them a good hard look. LoD Offroad Rock Hard 4x4 Tomkin

Which version of Publisher are you using? Can you describe the error when you try to print?

RE: Comparing Customer Service and Quality

Someone mentioned having a good PDI form. Can I get a copy of that? I used the ones here. Just bring along a 5 gallon gas can to add to the fuel tank so you can test the generator (under load) and pump fuel back into the can so you can test the fuel pump.

RE: Ideal Dinghy Vehicle?

Before you jump at a truck you need to know your ratings for towing for your motorhome. Hitch rating is your first step, depending on the motorhome this could be as low as 3,000 lbs. on up, many in the 5,000 lbs range, and much higher for some Diesel pushers. Once you know your motorhome limits then you can start to shop for a dingy/toad. An F150 can run 4,049 to 5,236 lbs, so knowing your weights really matters. A good start is to read the Dingy Guide, click here

RE: 3905 CR WW

One of the things WW was known for was doing custom work. Anything was possible. But dang, that thing is a beast.

RE: Amped 28FS Sway Issues when towing....need help!

There's nothing about a van that makes it unworthy of towing a toy hauler. That's the silliest I've read on here in a long time. I will agree and disagree. Blanket statements either way are not accurate and it does depend on numerous factors. The reality is the 15-passenger vans have been known to be unsafe when loaded with passengers, towing adding a cargo rack makes them even more dangerous. In my line of work these vans are all but banned now. Even the 12 passengers are highly frowned upon. I'm not going to to go in to massive detail, the reports on this, in particular 15-passenger vans, are out there. Here is one; 15-Passenger Van Safety That said, if it's a newer van and 12 passenger maybe. But with that 5.4, no way.

RE: KZ Inferno

Congrats! You might post a new thread about the rollers, some might miss it in this thread. Warranties are a mixed bag, often if you put the money aside that you would spend on the warranty you'll come out ahead. It's like going to Vegas. How much is the warranty? Have you read all the fine print (that's where they get you)? and finally have you talked to dealers about it?

RE: Comparing Customer Service and Quality

Of the ones you listed, Heartland wouldn't be on my list after some of the stories of other members have posted with their Cyclones. Sounds like you've had issues too. The industry is always in flux so what was good 2 years ago might not be today, getting a Gilligan Friday Rush RV is the one to avoid, but it's a guessing game. The Grand Design seems to be doing a good job taking care of customers, but they still have had some issues too. Two factors you can control though are doing a thorough PDI - we have lists we can all share that help with then when your ready. The key is to do the PDI before you sign for acceptance, once you sign you own it and its under warranty. If you do it before, the dealer is motivated to get things fixed to make the sale - you can also then decide if you want it. The other factor is finding a good dealer. Beyond a good deal is a dealer that will fight for you and not treat you like a number. I hung out in the service department when I first bought from the dealer I've since bought from three times. I had a good buying experience with them, but when I went to buy our motorhome a few years ago I found the service guy and talked to him. He knew me enough to know he didn't want me buying something I was going to have issues with and he gently steered me away from one unit.
