RE: Looking for snow advice - POSITIVE COMMENTS ONLY

So a few years back we went camping/ATVing in the mountains, knew potential for a bit of snow was possible but we got dumped on. Sunday things cleared up before the next major storm and we figured we need to get out. There were two similar rigs mine SRW F350 with 39' toy hauler and buddy with a DRW F350 similar toy hauler. Be both left the extra water in our tanks hoping/thinking it would help with better traction n the drive wheels. We went very slow down the mountain, no more then about 20MPH and most the time around 10 or less. We we made it down, with a lot of stress. Our SRW did better then my buddies DRW, he slipped several times while going down, but I didn't. We both had chains, but we we didn't have them for the trailer - mistake #1. Drive wheels are not enough you need to be able to stop your trailer from sliding too. Have both. The water weight, well I'm not sure it was good or bad, toy haulers already have a pretty high pin weight. I my buddies case we both think the added weight may have promoted his RV to slide a bit in the curves, hard to know one way or the other. 4WD is nice but doesn't do squat to stop you. See above about trailer chains. We were in a bit of a bad situation had we stayed longer it probably would have gotten worse and the forecast was bad weather for the next week so we had to bug out. Though I've changed RVs I carry tire changes not that I will ever use them, but so I can if I had to and to be legal with the state patrol. Snow is one thing, ice it another. I would prefer to just stop if at all possible. https://s18.postimg.org/oem96uuih/lehman1.jpg

RE: Winnebago Sightseer slide retaining strap

I used mine once, then it got put in the bag with the manuals. I saw another guy had cut a 2x4 to fit in the area and covered it with a no slip fabric.

RE: Loading quad sideways

Not knowing which TH you are considering and the exact dimensions of your Cats I'll toss this photo out. We loaded our two Sportsman 500s side by side, with the garage lip it was tight but doable. I'd pull the first one in and then push it snug against the side. Then I'd place cardboard or later on carpet squares on the other side to protect the wall. There was just enough room to get the 2nd one in. Just a thought... https://s18.postimg.org/3xybyz45l/ramps05.jpg width=640

RE: No Outlets on generator

try replacing GFI... as its a chain.... it trips and all is dead... I'll add that almost RV wiring uses the backstab/jam hole instead of wrapping around the screw. That alone can cause issues. I went through our entire RV and fixed that after I had one GFI acting up, doing that solved the problem.

RE: Slide usage while making pit stops..

We've WallyDocked a few times, and had to pull in the slides during high wins or extreme cold/heat, so for me not having access to the bathroom or panty/fridge or bedroom is a deal breaker. There are almost always other floorplans out there that can work, but ultimately its 100% up to you.

RE: The Complete List of Toy Haulers

Dave I am wondering if they are even still in business. Mark moved his namesake over to Omega RV and then you have the ongoing dispute between Omega/Mark & RV Factory's WW. I've been trying to confirm if they are gone or what, but can't find anything. Very odd.

RE: 2017 FWD Honda CR-V towed with Acme Dolly

I think this is the thread you are talking about. The OP has not come back since March 2017.

RE: Interstate speeds

I am just not in that type of rush to get anywhere. Back when I had my F350/Raptor combo I had to lock it up to avoid hitting somebody. I just can not find any reason to be going 70+ in my RV, plus it kills my MPG.

Maybe someone can help me.I have a 42 ft class a motorhome pulling a 2015 Jeep Cherokee This is a known issue. You can google "jeep cherokee wobbling" and find many links about this, including videos. But as rr2254545 said there is a fix for this.

RE: Is there a toyhauler w/a livingrm?

I can't seem to find it again, but I had run across a toy hauler that held a motorcycle in the slide-out Those seemed short lived, I don't think anyone is making them now. Evergreen Alpha Gold was one (they are now out of business) and I think there was another. Over the years there have been several non-standard garage styles of Toy Haulers none of them seem to last long I think the market niche must be to small to support them, but some very creative ideas.

RE: Class C ? Toyhauler

About the only Class C that I'm aware of is the Thor Outlaw on the Ford F450 Chassis.

RE: Base plate ?

Can a baseplate from a Wrangler fit a Liberty ? In my quick run through of Blue Ox baseplates from 2002 to 2013 for Wrangler & Liberty models I found none that share the same baseplate numbers.
