RE: Riding out a hurricane

Having gone through extremely high winds, some in the area reported 60mph at the Alvord Desert in Oregon I'd say get some help and move your RV next to a building at the least. Call the police non-emergency number and see if they have suggestions. The storm came up on us with no warning had no time to position our coach, but we pulled slides in and thankfully we'd been setup in a U formation with 2 other RVs and we knew at the worst we'd be pushed against them and no like we'd tip over. Scared the daylights out of me as we waited the storm out in the dark over night. Next morning we broke camp, heard that a church in the area lost it's entire roof. I never want to go through that again.

RE: Best way to lock up utv

Insurance Heavy duty cable/chain Lock Alarm We open hauled all of our ATVs and 8 gas cans. Cable locks help but I liked the use of the 15' Lock Alarm. If the cable is cut the alarm is set off, same if they try to break it. I used it when we transported and while at camp. Keep in mind that if they can get the trailer off easily they can have the whole thing gone very fast too. Insurance is your best bet, the other things keep the honest people honest.

RE: class C toy hauler

Where is the main bed then if the back space in open for toys? just the fold out couch? TIA Many will use a drop down bed in the rear or the overhead bed. Depends on the manufacturer.

RE: where to get Suburban range part. Stove quit working

Most local dealerships can get the parts you need. I'd also check campingworld.com and www.pplmotorhomes.com too.

RE: What does TWITTER do?

Twitter is similar to Facebook. People subscribe to your account and when you tweet it sends it out to them. Your account like FB can be set to private if not you're tweets are public. The plus side to Twitter is text is short, 140 characters unless its in a private message, so you won't get huge long paragraphs to read. The plus to Twitter is as you know Facebook plays a lot of games as to what messages your friends may or may not see, Twitter doesn't do that. You will see everything they post. I don't think you'll see as much advertizing or garbage stuff either. http://blogs.darden.virginia.edu/careercorner/files/2013/05/Three-Ships-Media.jpg

RE: 5er vs Winnebago

I've had Truck & TT, Truck & 5er and now Motorhome. We've had the motorhome since 2007 and been very happy with it. Pluses for us; bathroom, view out the window, drive-ability, ease of backing, large open space inside when parked, did I mention having not having to stop and use a rest stop bathroom? The motorhome also allowed to tow our ATV trailer or Boat. Once the Jeep is setup it will tow it too. Tough decision, but take your time and consider how your family camps now and say 5 years down the road.

RE: New to the forum and have my 1st question

Good news is that you found out hideout on the internet! The bad news is that the nitrous is a Fleetwood product and when Fleetwood went belly up they dropped trailer owners like a ton of bricks. Fleetwood still exists by name but they offer no nada zip support for the trailer lines. The other good news is that as mentioned you can download most all of the manuals, and many of our members were previous Fleetwood owners that can probably lend a hand if you have a more specific question. So now the real question, what are you going to haul in your rig?

RE: Ram 3.21 rear end towing

I've had a truck with a 3.21 rear end, good for MPG not so good for towing. Felt like it was a gutless wonder. Next truck had a 4.10, thing could tow a trailer up a tree, but the MPG wasn't so go. Next truck had 3.73, felt like it was the right compromise for me.

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

blackbullit how far back do you load your ATVs? Do you know where your fresh, black & grey tanks are at? Some are right over the axles some can sit before or aft.

RE: A story of 6 blown tires.

Folk the recent update changed the word filter. They are working on this issue. But as to the question, yes this is a family friendly forum. As adults I figure we can all communicate without using certain words. Give them time to tone the filter down.

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

blackbullit you might try sending a private message to both LooseBoltsRob & Erniex45 as they've not posted much and they might get a notification about a PM via email depending on how they setup their account. The tongue weight numbers help but the trailer axle numbers tell a lot too. Do you have those? 2/1/empty?

RE: AC Not Keeping Up

Just one AC on that 41' trailer? Definitely you need to add another if not two. We had two in our 38' Toy Hauler and two in our 35' motorhome. In high temps it gets it cool but not cold, but if temps are 95 I can easily maintain about 72-74. One thing you can do now to help is to bring in slides, that reduces the volume of air you need to cool and may help out some.

RE: Metal Shades in the bunkhouse- options to replace?

We had those kind in our old Outback trailer, whoever had the idea of putting them in should have been thumped upside the head a few times. I didn't want any strings so we opted to just put an plain old roller shade under the valance. Problem with tint is depending on the light others can see into the window still.

RE: Went In For Alignment Now Feel Being Taken For A Ride

I'd call your local GM dealership ask where they refer Workhorse repairs to or if they do them. Other option is to call truck centers to see if they do alignments on RVs, talk to them about your issues and see if they can look it over, probably for a fee.

RE: Torque TQ 396

There isn't a lot out about them but a few owners. Due to the name you'll need to pick through the Torque RV posts that get mixed in with the torque wrench posts, but there a few threads that might help you out here. While your searching read about Heartland as a whole. Some mixed feedback from Toy Hauler members about service over the years. But as always things ebb and flow year to year.

RE: Very light toy haulers

Did someone mention my name? I'd never directly throw anyone of our members under an F350 :)

RE: Very light toy haulers

A few thoughts for you as you shop. Make sure you get a good hitch, something like the Equalizer and a good brake controller like the Prodigy. Some dealers will cheap out on these with a lower cost unit, pay the extra money and don't get a friction sway control bar. Verify your hitch rating. It should be right on the hitch itself. Check the owners manual and if necessary go to your Honda dealership they can check on the details with your VIN. Over the years I've seen to many that made a quick jump to buy (usually posting here after the bought and not before) and then they are forced to buy a bigger truck. There is no such thing as a perfect RV, they all have some flaws from the manufacturer and some have a lot. When your ready to buy download a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) worksheet, you can find one here. About the only thing I'd add to it is to take 5 gallons of gas if it has a fuel station and pour gas in and pump it out to make sure the pump works. Finally do the PDI before you sign off on any purchase or loan paperwork. Dealers work fast to fix problems before the sale, but after it becomes a warranty and it's now up to the manufacturer to approve the work. Happy shopping & camping!
