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.

RE: garage door ramp.

Without knowing the size and type of damage it's tough to recommend anything. If the surrounding area is still solid and weight baring capable then maybe just a piece of diamond plate is all you need. I just don't know.

RE: built in generators

Some on board generators are quieter then others. The Onan 5500 is one of the quiet ones. Friends had an Onan 4000... that wasn't one of the quieter ones, but nothing like a contractor grade generator either. The advantages of onboard are considerable; resale is usually better with one, they are with you and ready to go, you don't have to go outside to fire up your generator and finally you have a larger gas tank so you don't need to refill it. There are times when we traveled with our Raptor we ran the generator to cool things off before we arrived.

RE: Tongue jack, anyone replaced yours ?

I replaced a 2500 lb. jack with a 3500 lb. model. Don't skimp on the capacity since you are usually lifting both the front of the RV and the back of the TV. I'll second this. Toy Haulers are heavy, buy the largest one you can find.

RE: Heritage One Ground Control?

I'd never even heard of them until your post. I'd be leary to be honest. They started production and were shut down around the first of July 2010. They only had 2 lines, Ground Control and Due West. Though most all RV us the same parts, a company that doesn't last long usually isn't a sign of quality building and construction. Unless you're very mechanical and can do your own detailed inspection I'd keep looking.

RE: Attaching stuff to walls in garage. How?

I tried contacting KZ to find the stud spacing on my unit. They said they do not maintain any plans and that I would need to use a stud finder. Yep that's the normal response. I think all they do is build a jig and go from there. I lucked out and go some plans off the net for a Raptor but I didn't trust them. Wait until you have a cool morning dew on your RV and you can see the studs on the outside, then mark and measure.

RE: Building a Bunk Ladder

I ran a search from 1 year ago and beyond for you. Results here. There was some discussions a few years ago about this, our 05 Raptor came with a god awful aluminum ladder, and many folks had purchase or built their own. Hopefully some of those ideas and discussions are in that search.

RE: Adding either electric or Manual jacks in front of tires

The JT strong arms are really great plus X chocks and the unit is very solid. This is what you see on many Toy Haulers.

RE: First camp in fuzion 342 questions

We always have the fridge turned on several days before we actually leave. Putting a load of warm food in a non pre-cooled fridge takes a long time to cool down. We have a lot of prefrozen food to load in after its cooled down, this helps out a lot. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! I've found the fridge/freezer needs at least 48 hours to get to temp when it's warm. We place bottles of water in the freezer, they should be frozen solid with in the 48 hours. If I need to accelerate the process I place frozen bottles of water in the fridge/freezer and a fan in the fridge, that usually can cut the time down considerably.

RE: Trim on Passernger side front by nose shifting when unhooked

Sounds like frame issues or something isn't attached correctly, I wouldn't be hauling it until you get the hitch/frame inspected. Do you have any photos?

RE: Thor Outlaw 35sg F550 6.7 L diesle

I spoke to a Ford truck specialist at a local dealership, who said the gears could be changed up to 3.55 (for $1000.00 Cdn + reprogramming costs) with no loss in capability & improve the mileage to 20 some MPG. Yes he was BSing you. You are not going to get 20MPG with your setup. If the manufacturer could get 20MPG in those rigs with a lower gear ratio and still be able to haul everything don't you think they would do it? Of course they would, they would have done it years ago. Bottom line your rig is heavy and it's designed to haul even more weight. That gear ratio is part of what makes up your weight rating and hauling capacity. Reduce it and you're reducing those numbers too. There is no magic way to increase your MPG. Welcome to owning an RV, you've got to pay to play. As to your comment about the number of posts. The challenge is your RV like, Class A Toy Haulers, fits in various categories. Most Toy Haulers are trailers. These are not hugely popular units so it can be tough to fine people with your rig that can reply to you. You're welcome to post here or in the Class B forum, which ever you think you'll get the most help from. Being that you have a motorized rig you might get more replies in the Class B group, assuming that front end unit is being used with other Class B RVs too.

RE: Totally not RV Related but I need help from the brain trust!

You need your own facebook account, like that page. Then the previous owners can made that person an admin. You then changes things over to your account, and remove the previous owner as the Admin. It's now yours.
