RE: Pin weights

Sounds about right, sadly many dealers say it will happen and it doesn't in all cases. A lot depends on the weight of the toys and where the water/black/grey tanks are located at.

RE: 08 Gearbox electrical questions

Stereo sounds like its a 110v unit, which is strange most I've seen are all 12v like you're average car stereo. If you can let us know the brand and model perhaps we can verify. As for the TV & other outlets, yes it's totally normal. Those are 110v AC you're batteries produce 12v DC. You can buy an inverter to take the 12v DC into 110v AC, but depending on the item it can quickly drain your batteries if you don't have a several installed. You can't effectively change every outlet, but an inverter properly placed could power your TV. A good place to start learning about all of this is, The 12volt Side of Life. We try to limit TV when we dry camp, but an iPad with a movie or laptop can help out too.

RE: Thor palazzo33.3 vs Forest River Legacy 340BH ???

Kevin your best bet. Call your dealer or call Forest River. Since they all say "subject to change" I personally would make sure you won't accept one with it.

RE: Coos Bay 4/15 - 4/19

Nice! I was wondering if your district took a mid winter break.

RE: Coos Bay 4/15 - 4/19

nw what school district are you in? I thought most of WA State was on the same Spring Break. You've got the weather situation right, almost always nicer mid April.

RE: wildcat trail?

Interesting, competition is a good thing. Polaris makes a nice rig but they need the competition to get their prices realistic IMHO. I'm of the mind set to wait until they update it, so they find the mistakes and problems, basically let the first adopters be the guinea pigs.

RE: 2007 Gearbox 260FS

Can you post up a photo and dimensions? Somebody might recognize it from another RV perhaps.

RE: Looking for a owners manual for a 2005 Fleetwood S1 Scorpion

Bill, they won't. They threw the TT/5er/Popup owners over the cliff when they closed up and were then born again as a Coach company. Pretty frustrating they did that to owners, and honestly gave them a huge black eye in my book. While I understand not providing warranty support, their name is still Fleetwood they should have helped out where they could.

RE: Hankook AH11 tires...

Decision time. Need new tires, 245/70R19.5 Quote for 6 new Hankook AH11 out the door price, $2621 ($436 each) or can go the Goodyear or Micheline route for about another $800. Depressing, but inevitable.

RE: Looking for a owners manual for a 2005 Fleetwood S1 Scorpion

Call Fleetwood at 800/322-8216. They havea good service department that will help you. They may have one for new motorhomes but they've all but abandoned the trailer owners. You'r better of using a search engine to search for each product owners manual you have in your RV. Very few actually have a manual for the whole RV operation.

RE: Owners manual

FYI this is a thread from June 2013.

RE: toy haulers and horses

Since the OP has replied and thanked everyone already and since the last horse/toy hauler thread got closed I'm going to shut this one down too.

RE: Is a longer camp site needed for back ramp

It depends... In some State sites they forbid you from unloading onto or parking on anything but pavement. Other dispersed sites it doesn't matter. As other said we often unloaded before we backed in, but if you're blocking the road you won't make to many friends. Most sites will have some sort of unloading area if that is the case.

Back in 2009 one of our members, richheck wrote this bit and I found it to make a lot of sense. Just a simple matter of physics, as you drop the leverage point down around 16 inches with the gooseneck you are changing the fulcrum point also. This creates greater motion against the pin box connections (i.e. the frame work), whereas with the conventional hitch the lowest point is the pin connection area. I work in the RV industry and have seen what can happen, especially when a person takes their unit off road like pismo etc and subjects the hitch to such greater loads. Ends up tearing the hitch box off of the frame, and sometimes this is not an easy area to get to to weld up and re-support the damage So the manufacturer of your RV is stating with the dealer should have either known or verified. Your beef with your damaged RV needs to be with the installer of the product. Problem is it comes down to buyer be ware, I'd be sitting with the installer and letting them tell me how they plan on fixing my RV if I were in your shoes, but if not then you may want to contact your insurance company or write a check I'm afraid.

RE: Four adults with trailer?

I had a Raptor/F350 setup and opted to go to a Class A/Trailer setup. Several reasons, the biggest was I really needed to have a dually for the rig I was towing and there was no way I could drive a DRW for work. Plus the diesel MPG in town was about the same as when fully loaded towing and it was killing me. So with the swap we found we liked the layout of the Class A better, and honestly after making the same long run with both rigs I wasn't as tired after driving the Class A. The Class A also let me take our boat.

RE: Great news for Glamis?

That is some welcome news after years of constant what seemed like losing battles.

RE: voltage 3800 problems

Dealers do a PDI when they first arrive and before they go out for sale. I saw our Raptor & Sightseer when they both first arrived. I was disgusted the shape the Raptor arrived in, dealer spent 2 days cleaning it up and fixing the things Keystone didn't. The Sightseer spent half a day, most of that was removing the plastic over the carpet and giving it a bath. Every manufacturer is different. We then did our own PDI. The term has multiple meanings.

RE: Ladder

the steps are small and bite into your feet. compound this with deep ribs to keep from slipping. find one that is comfortable to step up and down on with bare feet:) Winner Winner Chicken Dinner... this was how the one our Raptor was too. Our kids hated it, and I really hated having to climb in the loft at night to check on the kids. Some sort of medieval torture chamber ladder.

RE: Thinking of coming back to the dark side.....

Boatycall, I heard mixed reviews about the Gulf Stream Bounty Hunter, the biggest and most popular one out there is the Thor Outlaw. The concern I have is that at 10'6" I think you'll exceed the garage at 122" - you can probably get it in with some modification to the ride or by ramping the front wheels up.
