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!

RE: Onan 5500 won't start- control panel beeps?!

I have the same generator. For a while I could get it running but would die with in a few minutes. Then it wouldn't start. Are you looking for fault codes in the coach or at the switch on the generator? Do you hear the generator priming? I found this thread very useful.

RE: Instead of the recliner...

I don't know how the Fiesta attached the chair, but in our Winnebago the chair uses a bolt that is mounted under the floor. I've used the bolt hole to attach an eye bolt that I use a ratchet strap to hold a cooler. You might probe around for such a hole as it gives you more options.

RE: OH Ridge CG

Generally the answer is no. It can give ATVers a bad name if you ride where you're not supposed to. Some areas do allow it and it will be stated. If you're not sure check with the ranger or who ever is in charge of the lands. About the only place I found it was legal and posted was in Utah along the Paiute in various small towns.

Heads up, Construction on OR Hwy 101

Upgrade for coast highway planned North of Florence Few highlights from the story, personally glad to see this finally being addressed on this part of 101. "A 17-mile stretch of Highway 101 north of Florence is in such bad shape the state plans to undertake a major rebuild that will cost nearly $10 million. As part of the work, the project will widen curves along the stretch, Little said. That will involve excavating the curves, laying in new gravel and then laying on pavement, he said. The work will begin this month and be carried out this summer and next, causing traffic delays of up to 20 minutes. Traffic will be restricted to a single lane, and be controlled by flaggers and pilot cars."

RE: Keystone Energy discontinued??

Let's see the Energy was the NRG, and then before that it was that TailGator. I'm wondering now if it's the Carbon?

RE: Proximity of gas can to van exhaust?

I sure wouldn't have any form of gas very close to an exhaust, but without a picture it's hard to judge. Cheap plastic containers are a bad idea IMHO, they expand and often leak. The Scribner fuel cans are heavier, but I still wouldn't want one near an exhaust for long periods. I really agree with others, you need a metal Jerry can. The lids clamp tighter, they are not as likely to expand and leak as well.

RE: Generator question

Congrats on the new RV! As you've found you're good to go running your generator while traveling. Don't hesitate to ask a question if you're not sure, at one point everyone of us were new at something too. One thing to be aware of is if you're driving on gravel roads and kicking up lots of dust your generator air filter is going to get dirty fast so make sure you check it often if that is the case. Also if it is very hot out, you may want to turn your Fridge from Auto or AC over to LP as it generally is better at cooling then AC is. Happy Camping!

RE: Good location on Oregon coast for a week's stay?

We really liked Sea Perch RV Resort it's right ON the beach, if you can get a site over looking the beach it's even better. As far as Oregon State Parks Honeyman South Florence & Beverly Beach just north of Newport are a couple of our personal and frequent favorites.

RE: Do dealers get paid from factory for PDI time?

It's all part of negotiating. It's a profit center just like undercoating, sealants and stain proofing the furniture. I had one dealer tell me it was like the Documentation Fees they were required. They tend to get added on at the end when you're excited to get your new keys and go home. $300 here, $150 there and it begins to add up. When I bought my last used car I shook the guys hand on an out the door price, when they tossed in the Documentation Fees I told him that wasn't part of our deal. Wasn't worth losing my sale for $75 and they waived it.
