RE: OREGON DUMP STATION SHORTAGE?

Memaloose State park and the rest stop on the east bound lanes both had them. But neither show up on Trip Check now. Used to be that Oregon was pretty good about having these available. But cost cuts have eliminated most of them with all the regulations. I'd heard rumor that the druggies that dumped could cause significant damage so that was one factor in getting rid of unsupervised dump stations.

RE: Toy Hauler Cargo Dimensions "C/S" and R/S" - what?

Bit annoying to have to decipher what they meant though. But at least they are giving that information, some don't bother and then you have to email or go look at one.

RE: Toy Hauler Cargo Dimensions "C/S" and R/S" - what?

ramgunner is correct. If you look at this image of a Rag'n 20CBX http://www.pacificcoachworks.com/wp-content/uploads/20CBX-wpcf_611x294.png You'll see the wall space on the R/S (driver) is shorter then the C/S (curb/passenger side). So if you're hoping to load a wide rig all you'll have is 6'2 of space unless its able to fit within the sink cabinets then you can go up to 14'11 without an obstruction. Knowing the space from the curb side to the cabinets would be even more helpful. Cargo R/S 6'-2" Cargo C/S 14'-11"

RE: 5th wheel hitch for 2014 Ram

Just a piece of advice, though you are buying for today think of the future. A slider though more expensive assures future use.

RE: Toy Hauler Members Input Please

We're working on a few things trying to make it happen and see if we can save the knowledge base in some areas. Just waiting on some approvals before moving forward. Steve

RE: New Eclipse LED Flood Lights

Good you found the cause! I had issues with one of my timers for outdoor lights. My CFL lights would occasionally flicker, when I went to LEDs was a frequent pulse. Once I dug into things I found my old timer was totally not compatible with LEDs and was actually a fire hazard. That led to a lot of reading; garage door wasn't LED compatible, several dimmers were not. Point to all of that is you might want to check around, I bet that either they used a cheap incompatible dimmer or it's wired wrong. I found the manager/owner at BatteriesPlus really knew their stuff about LED switches. The guys at the big box hardware stores had no clue.

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

I was in agreement with you 2500, total agreement. Even the calculations support that the hitch probably isn't enough.

RE: Getting Divorced at 40 w/ 2 daughters aged 6 and 3

Sorry to hear that. From outsiders view, get rid of the house. Seems most of the time becomes a bitter remembrance or a financial devastation. I base that on my own father and 3 friends. My dad wanted to keep it for us the kids, but as I was the one that had to deal with his estate upon passing I could see that it hurt him financially. He should have sold it and split the proceeds (if any) rather then to buy my mom out.

RE: Cargo rack on back of 5er

Will need to remove or be low enough not to interfere with the ramp door obviously.

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

What WDH are you using. If it is an Equalizer brand then it is not strong enough for that trailer. The 1400/14000 WDH is too small for that load. I'm inclined to agree and I loved out Equalizer Hitch. I used their online calculator with 12900# gvwr (from website), 1935# (15% tongue weight) and 500# behind the rear axle. The results were they couldn't find a hitch so see dealer. But I think there is more going on then just the WDH hitch.

RE: Amped 28FS

Something is seriously wrong. I would start of getting the trailer weighed empty. Get a scale weight for the trailer axle weight, tongue weight then hook up and get a rear drive axle and front axle weight. My first gut thought is it sounds like you have a lack of tongue weight if you're getting that much sway. Is there a garage weight limit sticker? Are you over that? Where are the tanks at on the Amped? Over the Axle, aft or fore? Have you spoken with the factory about what you're experiencing?

RE: New TH w/ rear barn doors with windows? (like Alfa Toyhouse)

That was a pretty good concept, I wonder if the doors are patented for Toy Haulers, I can't think of any others like it with the ramps. Maybe somebody else has seen something.

RE: Pulling with a full load of Water

There's a guy who tests this theory on youtube (kinda like Myth Busters). He demonstrates pretty graphically that this ice theory really doesn't work. Ice in black tank As far as hauling water. It's purely physics. Do you wanna haul an extra 1000 pounds, or not? My philosophy is plan my trips to minimize hauling the extra weight and then fill when necessary. All I know is we had issues once, water, calgon, time and then about 20lbs of ice solved the problem. As for water, I always carry some. Sometimes finding it is a challenge and now in California that's going to be even harder for people.

RE: New Eclipse LED Flood Lights

Wow that is very concerning to see. Might want to ditch the plywood and get some type of aluminum heat dissipating plate or something, raising it up is good but you want to dissipate that heat. Maybe even a small computer fan. That seems like a huge fire hazard. http://www.toplevelcnc.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/Heat-Dissipating-Plate.jpg width=640

RE: Could this be the death of ATVs and SxS for safety reasons?

Thanks Mod. forgot to go looking for the letter generator. Team work! I was going to post some manufacturer links but I hate getting on their spam me lists so I just go straight to the source. Sadly no reply from my Rep yet.

RE: Raptor or seismic

Compare the warranty to really see what's included/excluded. Compare the dealers just as much, they are the ones that will be doing the warranty work. Warranty can be a life saver if you run into problems. I've had two Keystone (Raptor & Outback) and a Jayco. But after looking at the Seismic, personally I'd probably go with that one. Have you looked at the Grand Design Momentum too? If not I'd try to check those out as well.

RE: Apple TV, etc

Do keep in mind that if you're streaming the show from your iDevice you're either using data or on the wifi. If you're on campground wifi you might run into some issues, so downloading first might be a better bet. I like our AppleTV 3 but I'm happy I kept my old AppleTV 1 with the hard drive so I can load movies/shows onto it before we leave.

RE: Toy Hauler Members Input Please

Thanks for all the input. Things take a bit of time to make happen but we're going to move forward on adding the Photo link as long as all the higher up's are good with it. I appreciate the input from everyone. Steve
