RE: 2017 Jeep Wrangler

any idea why I'm not able to post photo links? I'm not sure what was wrong with posting. Photos need to be uploaded onto a host like photobucket or something similar, then the link is posted here. This site does not host any photos itself. If you need more help with posting photos please visit the RV.Net Tutorials and Picture related FAQ's However if you want to make it simple use the link below... New!

Just drag-n-drop a photo, and receive a copy-n-paste image link for your forum post. Uploads directly to IMGUR.com servers. Resizes photos to the max recommended by the Open Roads Forum.

RE: when 45 gallons is really 35 gallons!!!

What difference do you think that makes ? Clue: NONE Maybe not in Florida, but here I've been asked by a few rangers to water the plants in the desert and backwoods. Not all of us camp in sardine can style RV parks, many of us are desert or dispersed camping. So it's always worth understanding the situation before applying your own view on it.

RE: '05 Dutchman Classic 35SRV Toy Hauler

It's 12 years old that's the biggest issue, I can't recall any massive ongoing problems. Best bet is to grab a PD Check List and spend a few hours going over it before you make an offer or hire an inspector to do it.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

So many possibilities, see a Doc and vent your RV now. High levels of CO can make you dizzy, give you headaches or cause flu-like symptoms. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include: Headache, Dizziness, Fatigue, Shortness of Breath and Nausea. Get your Carbon monoxide detector checked or just buy a new one. You should also have a Propane gas detector, same as above checked or new, they don't last forever. Same as your smoke detector. As mentioned mold could be an issue too.

RE: Trax toy hauler by Frontier

I did a search in the archives, here is what I found. As you'll see it wasn't a very popular unit so its going to be hard to give you much information on it. Appears they were made in Longview, Texas and the company is out of business. There was one owner that had one, but that was back in 2009 and he wasn't very active. They were a FEMA trailer company, I'm not sure if I'd consider that a good thing or not though. Appears they got the contract in 2009 and we out of business around 2010. You can grab a PDI Checklist here or find others around. I'd do a very through inspection. Up to you, I'd probably keep looking unless it was a total steal of a deal.

RE: Landing gear failure and zero gravity problems

So during this 63 days what's the report from the dealer? Status of parts? I understand some parts can take a while, but almost seems it should go back to the factory.

RE: when 45 gallons is really 35 gallons!!!

I'm not sure what's up with your pictures, they should start with http:// though How big is your water heater? If it's 10 gallons there is part of it. I agree 30 isn't enough.

RE: Unable to post new topic in RV Lifestyle

Hi cathanas the RV.net forums are available through a few other portals. I've run into issues like you, but if you go to forums.woodalls.com you can use the same RV.net login there and should be able to post without issue. That may solve your problem.

RE: Ready Brake cable failure

I've read a few stories like with with Jeeps, and others too. If you haven't yet, toss in "Ready Brake cable failure" into Google.

RE: Best route from Kansas City to Seattle

Been there done that! We moved to KC from Everett years ago, we went through Boise, SLC and Denver to KC. We just drove to Denver following our same route this summer, its long but very doable. We also have driven I80 through Lincoln to Larime, preferred that route. We also drove through Montana/SD. I personally didn't enjoy that drive as much. Google shows 3 routes on Interstates, all are very doable with a U-Haul. Do pay attention to wind warnings, on our drive back (with our car) the winds were bad, many trucks and RVs had hunkered down in near overpasses. Enjoy the trip!

RE: 2017 Jeep Wrangler

As of yet Roadmaster hasn't put anything up about the 2017s. But you can read the install manual for the 2016s here.

RE: Looking at buying a Weekend Warrior????

The current "owner" of the name Weekend Warrior, The RV Factory, has nothing whatsoever to do with Mark Warmoth who was the founder and original builder of Weekend Warrior. Mark now own Extreme Warrior. RV factory bought the name rights, beyond that they are not the same RVs. Welcome to the forums! I'd highly recommend spending some time and reading through various posts, you'll begin to get some idea of common issues and some of the more popular brands that are discussed. Quality is highly subjective, and changes over the years. What was a great product a couple years ago might have issues today. You'll want to do some inspection of your RV when you get close to buying, the key is to do your own PDI (we have help on those) before you sign any paperwork - once you own it then you're dealing with warranty and not with the dealer trying to get out the door.

RE: Grand Design v Rockwood

Forest River has many lines of product for entry level to higher end. Shooting at them with a shotgun seems to hit them all, which is unfair. We had a Cardinal for 11 years and loved it. Chris Very true, but comparing a product that was made 11 years ago today carries the same overall risk. Often comparing apples to oranges. Each needs to be evaluated against set standards. I fear the quest for lighter and cheaper has had a very significant impact compared to similar units from 10 years ago. Traded one problem for another.

RE: Towing guide

Looking at the Wrangler but a pickup would be more useful. Jeep Wrangler pickup has been confirmed, about a year away though. http://media.caranddriver.com/images/media/51/03-jeep-wrangler-843-photo-667955-s-original.jpg width=640

RE: Fuel Station Wireing

You need to contact the dealer and the manufacturer direct to see if one of them can get you the wiring diagram (assuming one even exists) if not you'll need to get the wiring diagram from the fuel pump manufacturer and do some wire tracing to the various sources. It's been very much the reality that there are no plans available to the consumer, except with some manufacturers. But hopefully the fuel station wiring breaks that norm.

RE: Van four down towing

If you're open to something other then a minivan you might check out this thread "Flat Tow 6 Passenger vehicles under 5,000 lbs" as it has some good points. The Ford Flex seems to fit the bill for many.

RE: ARE they building what WE want??

An interesting read from Greg Gerber in what he calls, "RV Industry Death Spiral. I've made it through about half so far. I won't agree with everything, but he brings up some very valid points.

RE: Problem starting generator

The Mod made one little error a period or a word but whatever, don't use the OHM setting to check voltage. Good point! I'd say if you don't know how to use one, or the settings, its time to get somebody that does.

RE: Problem starting generator

I totally get electrical not being your thing. You might be better off to either get it in to your RV dealer or call Onan direct, there are two in Utah SLC 801-355-6500 and Vernal - I'm not sure those Onan shops will serve you as they don't show RV as a market served, so your dealer might be your best first call. If you want to keep going, you need to trace the 12v line from the generator back to the battery and/or switch. With an ohmmeter you can tell if you are getting 12v power to the generator. You can also try disconnecting the 12v lines from the generator and using another 12v battery to jump the generator. If it starts and runs you've isolated the issue outside of the generator.
