RE: Weight of Trailer ?

Having brakes isn't a bad thing, if the trailer has a blow out or isn't loaded correct and it gets squirrely behind you the brakes wil let you bring it back in line and stop safely.

RE: Weight of Trailer ?

I'm going to move this thread Dinghy Towing to Toy Haulers as I think the posters there can better help you.

RE: Sewer

Brooks look around, check inside your kitchen cabinets see if there is an opening, probably at the back, that leads to the underside of the RV. Might be able to use a fan to force some warmer air down there during the day. Where are your tanks located? Under the garage portion?

RE: Sewer

Brooks I've read about using about 3 gallons of RV antifreeze, one guy said try to get it warm before you dump it in. Recall saying dump 1/2 gallon down the kitchen, bathroom and shower, follow by 1/2 gallon of boiling water down each of the drain followed by another 1/2 gallon of antifreeze. Other say use a couple boxes of table salt and hot water. Are your tanks enclosed at all or totally exposed? Are you running the propane heat? Might keep the fan on and the cabinets open to air circulates.

RE: Taking the toy hauler up to the ski resort? Any problems?

Some good tips in this Prepping your Motorhome for Cold Weather RVing it might be written for motohome owners but some good advice for all RVers.

RE: positive battery cables

It might not have been the manufacturer, it's often up to a dealer to install batteries. You might call or email Northwood they are pretty good about helping owners out. service@northwoodmail.com or Phone: 541.962.6274 Or if you are not comfortable doing the work yourself and if you're in Yuma there are some mobile RV service companies, but might be a wait list this time of year.

RE: Stryker Toy Haulers

Really not many here with them, in fact in the past year I think the word only shows up 4 times and part of that was your previous posted when you were looking at one and got some advice about trucks. They were pretty known for the Fun Finder line up. You might plugs in the other model names into the search and see if you can glean info from those posts. My 'concern' is they are now part of the Thor family after Heartland purchased Cruiser. Their website shows the copyright from 2014 - which makes me wonder who's doing the web stuff, seems odd as part of a company of Thor's size. Could just be me, just caught me as very odd. Hopefully an owner or two pops in to share some details with you. Good luck!

RE: Shockwave TH Window Resealing

For what it's worth I use 3M Marine Adhesive Sealant 5200. I've used for the seam in my fiberglass roof and held up very well. I've also re-caulked a couple windows with it. They make a fast cure compound as well, the normal stuff takes about a week to cure. I put it on in 2009 in an year that requires inspection (fiberglass roof meeting front cap) and just noticed this past weekend I will need to replace. Not a bad run for near 6 years, better then the factory stuff.

RE: Shockwave TH Window Resealing

Lots of possibilities. Contacting Forest River might be helpful but might take a while to get a reply. If the goop has lost integrity as it appears the windows might be at risk. I'll assume (dangerous I know) that he goop oozes more in the summer months when it's hot out. You might gently push from the inside out to see if the windows are loose at all. One of our members Hap Hazard, and many others, have had good experiences with Jim at VIP RV Service, www.viprvservice.net I'd call him and see if he can assist you. He might be able to help just via the photos and save a haul into the shop.

Lectured? It wasn't a lecture I was trying to give you some help as the forum software can be a challenge at first.

RE: Taking the toy hauler up to the ski resort? Any problems?

We took our Raptor through some snow, not something I can say I really enjoyed. Chains for the drive axle of the truck are a must and set for one axle on the trailer are needed to be legal. We knew leaving that we'd be hitting snow to get home. So I added some extra weight to the Raptor by leaving the tanks full. We had a F340 SRW, friends had a DRW. In that case I was thankful for the SRW as I didn't slip, he did feel it a few times. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/raptorinsnow.JPG width=640

RE: What is a good toy hauler for full timers

Keep in mind that very few RVs were ever built to be true full timing rigs and most warranties are void if you full time. For your price range you're obviously looking at used thus the warranty issues is irrelevant. From the list that atwowheelguy you're looking at something around 7-10 years old. I'd recommend hiring somebody to do your inspection; you don't want something that's had roof issues.

RE: Dinghy tow dolly questions

It really depends on the Class C. I see the Mazda 3 has a weight range of 2,865 to 3,028 lbs. Some Class C's do not have a 5,000# hitch and might be 3000 lbs. or 3500 lbs. Key is to know your vehicle weight, the maximum hitch rating, then you can get a weight for a dolly or a trailer and see. You'd be hard pressed to find a trailer for less then 1000 lbs, so that might change which Class C you buy. That was a factor for us when we went to our Class A, I was finding most Class Cs didn't have a 5,000 hitch rating or enough capacity to tow that much weight.

RE: Any input on Gulfstream Wide Open Trailers?

In the past year there have been 2 posts about the Gulf Stream in the Toy Haulers, none of them were from owners just shoppers. Gulf Stream, for awhile, was having some major issues it seemed like. They wouldn't be high on my list. Over the years their reputation has been mixed.

RE: Suggestions from Wrangler JKU owners

Jeep Wrangler remains one of the most popular four down towing vehicles out there. Not sure what year this is from but pretty much all JK/JKUs are the same for towing. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/jeep_towing.jpg width=640
