RE: Wrangler base plate

I understand, it's a CYA type of reply. But if you think about it the bolts and the tow brackets are the potential weak links. The bolts and the bracket are the points that will be taking the stress of being pulled on, not the bumper. But you need to feel good about your towing, that's what matters most. Here is another bumper to consider, Iron Cross Full Size Front Bumper With Push Bar There is a custom Jeep parts maker in Colorado that makes one with tow brackets that is way more affordable but I've lost the URL. I'll see if I can find it for you.

RE: Wrangler base plate

I got a email back about that rugged ridge bumper that I originally posted and they said it's not for four down towing I'm not suprised, the D-ring are not designed for that type of use, though some use it. It's not just the D-Ring adapters but the bolts that come with them. If you use the Rock Hard adapter that I link to you should be fine as the bumper itself has nothing to do with it.

RE: Wrangler base plate

That's some wicked looking rust! Good call on keeping it though, for low speed use and some welding should be good to go. Congrats on the new Wrangler! Now you just need to get the top and doors off ;)

RE: Models Which Can Be Dinghy Towed

Thanks all. Helpful comments. It would seem from my searches today that Suzuki Autos have folded their tent in Western Canada and, indeed, possibly in North America. Parts will no doubt become hard to get. Will search for another brand when the one we have gives up following us about. Thanks again. Zuki announced it was leaving the US/NA back in 2012, good call to look elsewhere.

RE: Wrangler base plate

Just looked at the hard rock and LoD makes the one I posted look like a bargain. Yeah their bumpers are not cheap. But the bracket I linked to works well and is reasonable priced for a quality product. Some of the after market bumpers actually have Blue Ox base plate sockets built in. What other brands beyond HardRock and LoD make them?

RE: Wrangler base plate

That bumper is on my short list too. But I don't want to use the D Ring adapter so I'm considering one of these; Rock Hard 4X4 RH8000BO Blue Ox Tow Bracket Kit they make them for Road Master as well. Both RockHard and LoD make bumpers designed to tow, but they are not cheap. The adapters from RockHard have good reviews and comments from other RVers I've met with.

RE: Anderson weight distribution hitches

Unfortunately, thanks to the personal opinions directed toward Mr. Andersen, I feel as though some people who have had experience with his product, refrained from commenting. One thing about people on the forum, they will speak out if they feel strongly about something. I can't say they are known for to speaking up if they disagree with somebody.

RE: Keystone Outback 325cg

I once owned an Outback but it's been so long I wouldn't take my word on quality today. I'd open up your search and look at over all quality for the non-Toy Hauler style Travel Trailers & 5ers in the Outback line. Also, check out the Outbackers Forum too, I believe they are still around and active. (Disclosure I'm a former mod from there, was a great group of people)

RE: Harsh bounce on rough roads.

Kudos, you are in the top 1% of RVers out there that actually know their vehicles weights. Sadly there is not club membership or special discounts, we don't even have a secret handshake (yet). But seriously congrats now you can make informed decisions and not just guess!

RE: Harsh bounce on rough roads.

I bought a Drawtite Pro series RB2. Doesn't matter if you or the dealer setup it, it's a good idea to review the instructions and make sure it's setup correctly. If you havn't yet, I highly recommend taking it to you area scales (CAT Scales) while loaded to see what your real axle weights are as well as your tongue weight. With that information you can setup the hitch better then just an estimate based on book numbers.

RE: Harsh bounce on rough roads.

Which equalizer hitch did you use? Is it the actual Equal-i-zer brand?

RE: Before you get an insurance quote from Hartford, STOP! ...

If you read their posted privacy policy everything is laid out there. Most of us go into things without reading. Until the US adopts a "Right to be forgotten" your option is to work with the company. In their privacy policy (yes I did go and read it) there is an email address; I'd start there with a simple polite explanation of why you would like your information removed.

RE: Keystone Carbon water tank leak - OMG poor quality!!!

CObroker you are in a no win situation. Sadly, the local dealers are taking care of their own customers first, not good for you but they are forced into this since to compete with the large dealerships that sell and don't support after the sale. I can't say I totally blame them. Since we're in to prime time for RVing many are bringing them in to get ready for summer, you're in that line. So you have a few choices; 1) Keep trying to fight Keystone, which will really get you nowhere. 2) Get in line with one of the local dealers, and probably end up with a cheap fix and not have it for Memorial Weekend (at least with water) 3) Find a mobile RV tech to fix it; either on your own dime or see if Keystone will reimburse you for the costs (doubtful) 4) Expand your dealer search and drive a bit further. 5) Call the dealer you bought it from, can you even get an appointment there? 6) Fix it yourself, assuming you know what and how to do it.* *With some photos of what you are dealing with you might be surprised how many here can give you some advice. This isn't the first water tank issue that's been discussed over the years.

RE: Keystone Carbon water tank leak - OMG poor quality!!!

Call Keystone see if they can put pressure on a dealer to get you in quicker, or see if they can authorize a mobile RV tech to come look at it.
