RE: bough a Keystone Hobbi today

Lights, water pump, fridge, usually stereo, fuel station, antenna booster and heat are all 12v. TV, water heater if elect option, microwave, AC are 110v shore power. Fridge will run on LP but need power too, either manual or auto 12v or 110v. Water Heater is gas with electric ignition, some have combo gas and 110v heat. Most of the time the normal length of cord with the Hobbi will be fine, but having an extra heavy duty extension cord doesn't hurt. I've always carried a normal 12-15' dump hose and another one to be safe, use it on occasion so I don't have to hug the dump hose depending on the site. I carry a 12' and 50' water hose, the 12' works most of the time but that 50' is a life saver at some campgrounds. Toy Haulers have a heavy tongue, you defiantly want a weight distribution hitch setup. I went with the Equalizer brand as it has sway control as well.

RE: Change in plans

Gusts along 84 through the Gorge can be rough, but if you hit a clear day it's smooth sailing. On Hwy 12 from the Columbia until Walla Walla can be flat out dangerous, many yahoos want to fly down the road passing everyone, keep your guard up and watchful eye. As you near Clarkston you descend from the mountains to the Snake River, watch your speed. Roads should be fine, it's a light overcast day here in the Tri-Cities, light breeze.

Excel Wild Cargo No more

I saw the following thread in the Fifth Wheel forum and wanted to pass it along to Toy Haulers. Excel Closing Its Doors

RE: Weekend Warrior WLFSC 2800 Pull Trailer

I Will do a fuel system flush and a Gen set oil change also. (15-40 Rotella a good choice?) Honestly I've always just used the oil/filter from Onan, it's not that much more expensive and never had any problems. I buy enough oil for a change and half, and 2 filters at a time. This is a good thread to read over talking about issues using different type of oil; 5500 generator keeps shutting down after break in oil change

RE: Weekend Warrior WLFSC 2800 Pull Trailer

Are they known to crack in the same place on all of them? And what is involved in a permanent repair. I can't provide much insight since I didn't own a WW. But the other mod in Toy Haulers, dedmiston does and knows a bit more about the over all issue. I'll ask him to check in on this thread when he's able. What year is your WW?

RE: Weekend Warrior WLFSC 2800 Pull Trailer

First of all Welcome and congrats on your RV! No idea what the C stands for, maybe Cargo. As tinner12002 noted there were some frame issues on some models, you might want read through this thread, WW Repairs to see if you're might have been one of them on the recall list. Sadly the website that was up about this issue has been taken down but I imagine if you read through it you'll get some information.

RE: Microsoft to End Internet Explorer(IE)?

Smart marketing move by Microsoft. Time will tell if they can build a better browser. IE left a bad taste for most users. But until it's release not much to say.

RE: Sand Point Idaho. Lake Pend Oreille

I'll add to Al Fresco's comment. If you want a more rustic/scenic campground that looks over the water the Sam Owen is your best choice, though it is a bit out of the way. Farragut is a great park, but the sites do not see much of the lake. On a windy day that can be a good thing, but I enjoy views of the lake. Farragut State Park Sam Owen Campground

RE: Polaris Ranger Crew hauler rec

Beyond just the length you need to consider the height. If the Toy Hauler has rear bunks that raise up you might have an issue with the highest of your Ranger. Unless you go with a 14' garage model you need to be looking at open floor plans.

RE: fresh water sensor

If all else fails consider getting a SeeLevel system

RE: Considering a USED Toy Hauler

Few years ago the Fleetwood Gearbox had major delamination issues in the 2004-05 model years. I don't know if this was an issue with the Redline or not. I would do a close inspection though. I'd take this PDI Checklist with you and spend some time without the sales guy and look at each time and compare. Flooring, ceiling and roof are essential to inspect to make sure they haven't had water leaks. Check Lists

RE: The new trailer came home

Sweet! Now I'll be real curious to hear how it does over the next year or two. I've read a lot of great things about Grand Design and hoping that you experience the same. Congrats on the new rig!

RE: XLR Factory tour

Wish you luck, I did a google search and a search here for current and archived threads, nothing came up. Google did pull up a topic from group heartland tour, but nothing about any private tours of the factory.

RE: 2008 Jeep Wrangler

Phillip as you found some 2008s have it and some don't, can be very confusing when you hear different reports. Glad you figured yours out. You can pull the IOD (ignition off draw) fuse in the fuse box to keep the battery from draining while towing I've read.

RE: Car Trailer Towing

You want to maintain your tongue weight around 15% when your loaded. Not knowing where the car will be tied down and the weight impact it's very hard to give you much advice. You're better off waiting to level things once you have it loaded up the way you will be towing. Then determine how to adjust. A drop hitch maybe needed. But you might also need/want air bags to keep your truck level too. If not your headlights might be aiming for Mars.

RE: Keystone Carbon 33

I can't say the Carbon ownership has been a big crowd around here. Did find the following mentions of it in these threads but I didn't see how many actually bought one. As you haven't picked it up you might start reading about doing your PDI or Pre-Delivery Inspection. Here is a good one to start with Link

RE: TV Problems with our new Fuzion

Bert, See if this thread helps you out. Discussion about a hidden booster button in a Fuzion 331, might help you too.

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

You really need to run it across a set of scales and check your front, drive and trailer wheel weights. If the scales are not busy, meaning not a lot of truckers waiting behind you, drop your tongue and get a real hitch weight. Might need to look at a more extreme anti-sway hitch like the Hensley you're wallet won't like you but over the years I've always read good things about it.

RE: FK2100 Weekend Warrior Electrical questions

ddfuller before I spent the money to upgrade my charger I'd get a couple of batteries. If you dry camp frequently the dual 6 volt setup is really the best way to go, but even adding another single group 24 would be better. For the money it's your best bang for the buck. One of my early RVs had a single group 24, could barely get through a weekend. If your battery is a couple years old I'd spring for two new ones, at least Group 27 but Dual 6 would be better. Good luck!
