RE: Trona Gem-O-Rama Trip

Looks like a blast!

RE: Switch at the door

On mine the stairs are activated when the magnet on the screen door is opened. When I work on the batteries, under the entry stairs, I tape a magnet over the connector so they will retract. That might work for you too.

RE: Work shop in teh garage

Wow it's been 12 year since I saw a guy with a decked out wood shop in his toy hauler. They were full timers and he made yard art and signs. He did bolt everything through the floor. I recall he dropped the gas tank and water tank to get at everything. He used some large plates under the floor to bolt through. One item he had was mounted to a plate inside the garage then two bolts through that into a plate under. He also added 2" of solid foam insulation on the walls so he didn't annoy the neighbors while camping. None the less the campground we were at wouldn't allow him to use it due to the noise, but he told me he'd learned to ask first and hopefully not be camped near anyone. He made some really cool stuff as a way to supplement his retirement income, but I think mostly to give him something to do. Wish I'd kept the photos I had of his setup.

RE: From 5er to class A, why?

For us it was two reasons. 1. Math. After looking at our F350 and our Raptor Toy Hauler I realized I needed a dually to be in a better towing capacity. But no way could I use a dually for a daily driver. Plus I didn't like having that much weight in charge of my truck, got into one scenario where I had to brake hard and fast so I didn't hit the car in front of me. I didn't like that one bit 2. Bathroom on wheels. I love my wife, but I knew every rest stop along our route, with the Motorhome I can fly by those rest stops and she remains happy.

RE: New toyhauler owner question

I wonder if they didn't tap the tank and install the valve? Can you snap a photo and send it to Eclipse?

RE: Looking for likeminded couples

...All you need is an onboard beer tap system and you will have reached nirvana. :) Enjoy your travels. See this is what us Class A owners are missing... Toy Haulers come standard with one of these, or so I hear! ;) https://assets.centralrestaurant.com/images/products/large/675-653.jpg width=320

RE: Looking for likeminded couples

Welcome to the forums! Hope you find some fellow RVers to camp with. Over the years we've been part of a few group that we camped with and made some good friends. Though this sub-forum is for Toy Haulers I'm going to leave you post here. You might explore the Class A & Full Timers sub-forums too. Please be aware that posting the same message to multiple forums is frowned upon. You might take a moment to review the Forum Rules too.

RE: Question About Generator

Preinstalled is best. Gen prep kit is second, but not great. No gen and no prep is a bad choice. It will cost you thousands at resale. x2 - get it now and don't worry about it I've had RVs with & without, would not buy one without one.

RE: e size of toy garage on 2011 Grey Wolf 19 RR?

Length 23.92 ft. (287 in.) Width 8.08 ft. (97 in.) If you are talking the space from the ramp door to the bathroom wall I'd estimate you have about 10'. https://i1.rvusa.com/crs/rv/floorplan/2010_ForestRiver_CherokeeGreyWolf_19RR.jpg

RE: How much clearance

rickhise are you taking about a truck/trailer or about hooking up a car to something? This forum is for cars being towed behind and RV. I can move your post to an appropriate forum I just want to make sure I understand your question.

RE: Towing Toyota Prius

I find no company that makes a base plate for towing four down, nothing from Blue Ox, Demco or Roadmaster, that should tell you something. Plus even Remco, who makes lube pumps says they must be towed on a dolly too.

RE: Fuzion FZ401 question

Deal fell through. Not the sellers fault. :(

RE: 2016 Fuzion 371 too much for 2 axles

Back in 2005 when we were shopping and down to the Raptor and Jayco the difference was 2 and 3 axles. After looking at the Jayco and getting the #s for the axles and tires we opted for the Raptor as I didn't feel there was enough margin and the hitch weight was high too. So I'd say check the axles and tires to make sure they are rated for it, but don't assume you need to check. I did a quick check and the Hitch Weight showed up at 3015#, make sure your truck can handle that.

RE: Replacing TH outside 6x9's

Welcome to RV.net! I am sure some fellow members will have some advice to help you out. Depending on how well the doors seal out the elements the Polks are probably not a bad type to go with. A note to those replying, please keep it on topic, this is not a debate about the use of the speakers, keep in mind that before replying.

RE: 85 octane

Our trip to Utah a few years ago I filled up with 85, OMG never again. Elevation or not our RV felt like a slug . Never again.

RE: Generac Guradian Generator

tuna fisher I'm going to move this post from Toy Haulers to Tech Issues in hopes you get some additional advice.

RE: 11 ft Waverunner in 12 ft TH Garage

I'd chock the trailer wheels, strapping it alone might allow more movement the you want.

RE: R-Pod offroad?

None of them are going to hold up well for frequent off-pavement use. Airstream tends to be a heavier and more quality oriented build, but these are just not designed for off-pavement use.
