RE: Which Toy hauler; Cyclone, Raptor or Voltage

Glad you looked at least. Enjoy every minute you can with the kids; we loved camping with ours. Sadly it's college time now.

RE: Which Toy hauler; Cyclone, Raptor or Voltage

RockinTCamp before you just jump back into the Voltage check out the Grand Design Momentum line up, bit more $ but they are designed for full timers. Just a thought.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

Congrats, we camped at Honeyman for about 10 years in a row. Few thoughts for you. Bring extra hose and spray nozzel, if you want to rinse your toys off. Make sure you lock EVERYTHING up at night and if you leave, ATVs & gas cans, even your beer cooler. There is a wood shed near the exit to the dunes; wood isn't always the best so as you drive through Glenada there are several places that sell wood a better prices and usually drier too. If you need ATV parts the Florence Yamaha/Polaris store has a great stock. Liquor is sold in State liquor stores, there is one up near Safeway. If you don't want anything fancy after day of riding Mo's Clam Chowder in old town is pretty good. Whatever you do don't park your ATVs on the dirt at the campsite; it's about the only time I've seen the Rangers go off on anyone (I got yelled at once while unloading). Have fun!

RE: Fuzion 371, Raptor 375 or Momentum 350

I am curious if anyone understands what M Class means regarding the Grand Design Momentum. I see their two new floor plans including the 350 are M Class. From what I've read the M Class is a lower-priced Toy Hauler. You are right about the price though need to compare apples to apples. You pay for quality. One of the pluses of the Momentum line is they are designed for full time use, which many manufactures clearly exclude in their warranty information.

RE: Fuzion 371, Raptor 375 or Momentum 350

Weight does not mean quality. Steel is cheaper than aluminum. Raptor has a King bed slide out, there is some weight, larger shower w/tub and dual electric beds. Those items are where your additional weight is. Lately the Grand Design line up has been getting a lot of great comments as far as quality and finish. I'd probably say Momentum, Fuzion/Raptor - hard to say between the F/R which is better, probably like Chevy/Buick back in the day, just a way to have another dealer in the area for a similar product.

RE: Automotive vs. RV antifreeze

Scott you are completely wrong. From the EPA, "Antifreeze is toxic to humans and animals. Waste antifreeze contains heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and chromium in high enough levels to potentially make it a regulated hazardous waste, so most states strictly regulate antifreeze disposal." Do you want that stuff in your water system or environment? It is totally irresponsible to dump any amount down the sewer.

RE: Automotive vs. RV antifreeze

No! Auto antifreeze is toxic. RV antifreeze is designed for the water lines and is non-toxic. Never use automotive antifreeze in your water lines.

RE: A/C

Sorry .... Do the rear bunks in the garage toy box area have air conditioning? It varies based on each unit. Some will have their own dedicated A/C unit others are going to be ducted. If its a longer hauler like a 39' you will often find one unit that serves the master bedroom, and another that serves the main cabin and garage. That type of setup mayor may not cut it though. What is comfortable in May could be very uncomfortable in July at high temps and humidity. We can probably be more helpful if you have a specific model in mind.

RE: Raptor air matress?

I can't really help you, most I've heard about these is what a pain they were and that they were not very comfortable. I found a thread here that might help you, but I'm unable to find direct answers to your question.
Y-Guy 11/01/14 11:19am Toy Haulers
RE: A/C

Welcome and feel free to ask any questions you have. Clarity will help out in the long run so using terms like AC can mean either Air Conditioning or Alternating Current as in electric power. I think all of the bunk beds in the toy haulers I've seen run off of battery power, though they run better when plugged in. Making sure you have more then a standard group 24 battery is important as beds, slides and other things can drain a battery fast.

RE: Filled the Gray

I'd get into the dealer. Some campgrounds might fine you for dripping waste tanks intentional or not.

RE: Weekend Warrior FB2100 Superlite 2009 new to me

Why does this site keep quoting my original post when I do is go back and make a simple "edit" to my original? Is there a site admin who can look into this? Have never had this problem before. I can't seem to duplicate the problem myself. Sometimes if you are quoting multiple people it gets crazy. If you have a chance to copy the test from a box or a screen cap it might help me to understand better what you're facing. The mods down in Forum Technical Support might have and idea, I'll see if I can flag one to look at this.

RE: Relocate batteries to reduce tongue weight

You need to vent the top, Hydrogen will not vent downward since Hydrogen is lighter than air. Introducing Hydrogen into your living area is a bad idea. Play with the scale some, you're really not going to save that much weight, if you are over capacity you need to consider other options IMHO.

RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

Glad you gave them a call to get things resolved. As has happened before there is an assumption that warranties are like automobiles, but they are not. As much as the manufacturer says you can take it anywhere to get serviced, and you can, but you are at the mercy of that dealer. Consider that a dealer has customers that it sold to and those folks are needing service who do you think they will help first? Well I'd hope that if I bought from them they take care of me first and non-customers second. That's what happened to you. Be it right or wrong it's how things go out. This is one of the factors when buying out of your area, out of state or across the Country. Bottom line though is Eclipse stepped up and took care of you, like they should have. I'd be giving them some serious kudos, they could have gone the other route - and many manufactures have. Congrats on getting service lined up, good luck!

RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

You really need to pick up the phone and give Eclipse a call. Talk to them about your problems (with the RV) and with the dealer you took it too. Then see what other options they have without bringing it back to the plant. See if they have any mobile RV techs in your area that are approved to do warranty work. It's not likely but you never know until you call. In addition by calling you document your RV issues with them.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

Great list! http://www.oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=95 My #10 have stopped in here, decent sites, sand access, no hook ups, close to Florence I'll disagree but that is only to mention a few things. Honeyman is a great campground for ATVs in the off-season, October-April. During that time the H Loop gate is opened up for direct access to the sand dunes. All the sites in H loop have water & power, some of the sites also have sewer hook-ups. The H Loop sites were expanded a few years ago, adding extra asphalt to make parking wider allowing the RV & ATVs. They are pretty assertive about keeping ATVs off the dirt. Sand Lake - never been there, never intend to go, very small, way over crowded, and too many accidents w/ injuries and deaths, too many people in a very small riding area - just my opinion. I agree, it's not bad during the week but on weekends it's crazy busy. Been there once. They also have erected wood pole fences everywhere. This can make it next to impossible to get your larger RV into some of the sites.

RE: Eclipse ToyHauler service in a word - challenging

Dealership you took it to for service really should have been up front with you about their policy. This has become a lot more common it seems since some of the big dealers started "wholesaling" and shipping. I can't fault the local dealers wanting to take care of their customers first, but should have told you their policy up front so you could have decided. Keep in mind dealers do get paid for service work, but it doesn't cover all of their costs. Most don't pay their shop rates and set to a certain number of hours for the work. I'd call Eclipse and consider taking it down to them.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

You can also beach camp in Florence if you actually want to camp out on the dunes. There are designated camping spots just for this at the South Jetty. Be aware some sites end up under water during the winter months due to heavy rain. You also need to know about the Oregon ATV training courses which are required for ALL ATV riders as of Jan 1 2014. Getting the cards isn't difficult, but you do need to take care of it before you go. We've camped with several people that had to go into Florence at the Library to take the test and print out the certificates or they wouldn't be riding. There are exemptions, "Yes, all non-residents riding in Oregon are required to take the online ATV safety education course and carry an ATV Safety Education Card. They are exempt if they possess another state or country’s ATV Safety Education Card." www.rideatvoregon.org

RE: Electric Beds Won't Work

Few thoughts. Knowing if it's used/new (assumed used) brand/model of RV and what beds are installed can help. 20am, 30amp or 50amp won't matter as the power to the beds should be 12v. As donn0128 pointed out chances are its in the 12v system. Assuming RV is used and been sitting on a lot I'd agree the battery either needs to be charged or it's dead. The converter/charger could also be the issue, if you are plugged in you should have 12v to all the systems. Finally the beds could have issues themselves.

RE: vrv toyhauler

The fridge on the 7x20 is great under AC. With Gas the temps of the fridge can swing depending on the outside temps. It seems dependent on the overall heat outside. When its 90's the fridge is struggling under gas and I slowly see the temp rize to near 60 degrees which is not good for food obviously. This is not uncommon on some RVs. But there are things you can do. Here are a few threads that might help you out. You also might want to post over in the Tech Issues forum.
