RE: Best place to sell my toy hauler?

Time of year is a challenge for you at this point. CraigList can be good but many are looking for a killer deal. Lots of pics can help, as well as full details. The more details you provide the better it will look to a serious buyer. Many sellers just toss up a price and a pic, that doesn't do it for higher cost items. Expand your posting area. Many CraigsList buyers never look out of their immediate area. For a Toy Hauler people are willing to travel (for the right deal) so post your ad up on other major metro areas within a reasonable drive. Know your price too. NADA will help, look for what others are asking too. Many RV owners are upside down on their loan, in that case you need to take a loan to get your price down where the market is at. Just my thoughts for you. Good luck.

RE: Onan Fuel Pump

I put in a generic from Amazon. Airtex E11015 Electric Fuel Pump for Onan Generator Set Fellow Toy Hauler Brenden had a good threat that listed various partes for the change. Click Here That's assuming you have an Onan 5500, not sure about exact parts for others.

RE: Generators and current

Doubt you'd need a 7000 unless your running both AC units. The Honda EU3000iS is a good balance of power and quiet and you really needed more you can buy a second and run parallel. Run that 7000 in a campground and you're neighbors might sharpen their pitch forks ;) I had a guy running one of those contractor grade units. I asked nicely to move, but he didn't care. Went to camp host and he went over generator hours, I agreed but asked that he run it on his side of the RV not the side I was on. Bingo. He moved it, never heard him run it after that - deafening.

RE: Hydroplane races in Kennewick, WA next year.

Bill I live in the Tri-Cities. You'll have a blast. I work down the street from where the races are at. Crowds are everywhere in that area, we avoid going out to eat during the races. On Columbia Park Trail you have McDougals which is a sort of Irish Pub overlooking the Columbia and Kimo's Sports bar is next door. Up Columbia Center Mall Drive you have Red Robin, Fire (pizza/subs), Outback, Dead Lobster, Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, Famous Daves, PF Changs, etc. Buffalo Wild Wings just opened. As it gets closer remind me and I can continue a list, but in the next year never sure what may open or close. We have some good small local places and some bad ones. Sadly we have far to many chains IMHO. Where are you staying? Columbia Sun RV Resort is new, nice and fairly close. The ones closer are sort of slummy. It can get very hot in the Tri-Cities, lots and lots of water. Drop me a PM if I can help you at all, I'll try to check back here as well.

RE: List of Trailer Toy Hauler Manufacturers?

I've kept up the Complete List of Toy Haulers in the toy hauler forum for a number of years. It's fairly complete considering things change all the time. What you need really is a custom unit, trying to use the ramp for wheel chair users would be risky. You'll want/need a true ADA accessible lift. Friend of mine is disabled and used one in their custom motorhome. Which was a custom Rexhall, you might check them out to see if they offer something helpful. I think they are just building motorhomes at this point but anything is possible for the right amount of money. I know that Keystone has a plant in Pendleton, thought I'm not sure what toy hauler units they are producing now since they dropped the Energy. I think Forest River has a plan in Dallas, OR and Harrisburg, OR.

RE: Fiberglass siding question

Thanks for the update Hap. Look forward to hearing more. Thanks for the additional details too, I'm sure that will help other members down the road too.

RE: WD bar storage ideas or mods?

I'd used some square PVC fence posts which are about 4" wide, cut them and secure them under the a-frame. You can put caps on them if you wish. I didn't consider security an issue since I was either camping or it wax next to my house. I'm not sure anyone would steel just the plain bar, but anything is possible.

RE: iOS 9

Been running 9.0 on my iPhone 6 and iPad 2 and no issues with either. I'd say the iPad 2 seems to load most things (except Facebook) quicker now.

RE: Fiberglass siding question

Hap no need to apologize you've been a long time member and you obviously know how some things quickly slide off topic. Please do keep us posted, with what you find out. It helps us all and is a real help to those WW owners that may have an issue down the road.

RE: Winchester bay dunes Oregon

I rode Winchester & Sand Lake once, mostly rode Florence with our Utility ATVs over the course of about 10 years. There are some steep areas to Winchester that a utility just doesn't fit in with very well, but you can get around those peaks pretty easily. Banshee Hill is one of those hills but there are other stand peaks that are about the same. Our kids on 90s struggled more at Winchester with and without paddle tires. I had paddle tires for my Polaris 500 my wife did not, both of us had about the same challenges. If I had sport quads I think I would have enjoyed them more at Winchester over my utility. IMHO there is more area and places to explore at Florence, and at Winchester you can not ride no the beach. Sand Dune Guide - Oregon

RE: Puma Unleashed

Is one AC unit enough to cool the entire trailer? Have any of you added the on-board generator? This is an option I think I would want but they told me $5,000 installed. Seems high but I haven't shopped around. We are just starting to look. One A/C for a 37' RV really isn't enough unless it's a mild day out. If it's hot, you'll want/need that second one to maintain temps inside. A brand new Onan 5500 off of Amazon will run you $4,584. So $5000 doesn't sound that bad. Yes you can buy a portable generator for less, the down side is you need to set it up each time you take a trip. There is value in having it a button away. I did the portable generator, but when I bought our Raptor and Winnebago they both had the Onan and glad I don't have to move my Yamaha around. There is value to an on-board generator at resale time too. But really comes down to your style of camping and if you want to part with the money. The only other comment for you is look at the storage inside, I didn't see much storage for the master bedroom compared to some others I've been in. Just food for thought.

RE: Fiberglass siding question

Before attempting to repair I would focus on what caused this to happen in the first place. Totally agree. Knowing why it happened it the key to a lasting repair. Panel shouldn't just pop out like that.

RE: Puma Unleashed

One downside is all the Puma's are 96" wide vs the 102" for many other haulers. This means you can not load two ATVs side by side, and other issues. It's not an issue if you don't need the space. I can't say they've had a lot of issues posted on here. But if you put the word Puma in the search box and click the "Search only in Toy Haulers" you can read some past threads - if you haven't already done that.

RE: Selling a rig your upside down on

If you really want out you'll need to get a loan through a bank or some other method so you can cover the difference between what you owe and what you finally sell it for. If you have the loan locally it's easier to deal with or try to get the loan from who ever you have the RV financed with as this makes getting the title released easier and quicker.

RE: air conditioner on generator

Do you have to plug the power cable inside the bay? Or is there a manual switch to change from generator or shore power? Our Winnebago has both requirements. Our previious 5er had an automatic transfer switch, which did lock up a few times meaning I had no generator power but I had shore power. While I was unplugged and generator off I firmly tapped (with butt end of a big screw driver) on the cover plate and then opened up the ATS and blew it out. I would then alternate between shore & generator, it locked up once more but after that I didn't have a problem. I sort of prefer the manual mode now, if it doesn't work it's my fault not some magnetic gizmo.

RE: Cigarette Smoke

I might disagree with some. I bought a used Jeep that had been smoked in. Dealer promised (in writing) to negate the smell. Now a Jeep is obviously smaller then a TT, and in a TT with the mattress and carpet you might have issues. But what they used was Room Shockerâ„¢ ClO2 Odor Eliminator Quick Release Vapor I honestly wasn't sure it would work. But I ran the gizmo as per the instructions and I'll be damned you can not smell even the faintest smell now, even on a 110 degree day when it's closed up. Now would I buy a TT that was smoked in? I'm not sure, but if they desmoke it first before it's too cool outside I might consider it. Otherwise I'd say walk away.

RE: Remix Mini , $30 Android PC

We run an outreach center, this could be a huge hit for us and at that price point makes it very easy & cheap to deploy. If they have something like Remote Desktop I could see this in our business locations too. For the price I hit the reserve button out of curiosity.

RE: 2016 Dutchmen Voltage 3970 Auto Level System

Assuming from your comment that it was delivered and the dealer not being much help that this was not bought from a local dealer? If that is the case and since Dutchmen is owned by Thor you should be able to get a service appointment with any local Thor dealer even if they don't sell Dutchmen/Voltage.

RE: T210SLC Sandstorm

I'm seeing 22'11"box and 26'11" overall, a 4" tongue sounds about right.
