Sad day at Winchester Bay for ATV community

Sad to come across this story, but a reminder for all of us to be safe as possible out there. It does appear from the Oregonian that alcohol may have been involved. :( 25-year-old charged with manslaughter and assault in ATV hit-and-run Washington man dies, Clackamas woman injured in ATV hit-and-run on Oregon coast Manslaughter suspect arrested in Oregon coast ATV hit-and-run investigation

RE: Anyone have a FR Wolf Pack 20PACK10?

Welcome to RV.net! There are a couple things that seem to keep these from being real popular; the exposed deck and the rear slide out bed. It seems like the rear slide outs have stuck around but never really taken off. We had an Outback that we liked a lot. But in cool weather the rear bed could be a bit chilly and I personally hated crawling into be usually over my wife. That said you got more camper in a shorter length. The front deck models seem have have never taken off. Saw them on pop up's a lot. Part of the reason might be they tend to put a lot of weight on the hitch. Keep in mind that toy haulers are never light weight so make sure you have a truck that can handle the trailer and toys plus all the stuff you take camping. If you are taking just one ATV you should be fine, but play with the placement so you get the proper weight on the hitch without overloading it. Having hauled our ATVs on a open deck trailer I personally recommend dropping a few bucks and buying the trucker style 2" straps.

RE: CJ2 in a Toy Hauler

Just check the numbers, not all toy haulers can haul it but most should be able to.

RE: Winnebago Spyder or Coachmen 26CB?

That is rather odd, but if you don't need the full width it's pretty nice. We don't have a lot of counter space in our RV, so we bought a large over the stove cutting board with the anti-slip pad, when we don't use our stove we can use it if we are using the stove we can place it over the sink. Trade off's with anything just need to figure out what you are willing to give up.

RE: Cant for the life of me figure out how to fill water tank?

Some good advice and don't feel bad. When we bought our Winnebago the fill was so different then our others it took me a while to get used to it too. Few things to know. - Once you fill the tank you should remove the hose and use the cap to seal the inlet. Change the dial from Fill Tank to City water as well. - If hear the pump but are not getting any water you might have an open valve that is not allowing the tank to pressurize. This could be the valve for the winterizing system, or the drain lines for the tank are open still.

RE: chemical smell in rear bathroom of 2012 road warrior

Have you filled and flushed your toilet? Many come with black tank sprayers, or you can use one the toilet wands that reaches down to spray the walls - these don't work well in all toilets. The other thing you can use is the Flush King which allows you to back fill your toilet, then open to flush it out. Before I got a black tank sprayer that's what I used.

RE: Word for Mac

The files are moved to a temporary folder, as EV2 said unless you "Save As..." you will not be able to easily find them. As far as the width you should be able to change that in the View menu. Which version of Word are you using?

RE: Bunk lights on Roo

Our Popup and Kiwi both had bunk lights, never broke but they did need to be adjusted sometimes. Here is what the clips looked like on ours. http://www.truevalue.com/assets/product_images/styles/xlarge/705087.jpg width=300

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

i assume i can pick up any gfi outlet at lowes to replace it? Pretty much but if in doubt take a photo of the back of it, so you know how it was wired and take it in to Lowes to buy a new one. Is it the last leg in the line or in the middle or the 1st? I'd also check the wiring on any other outlets on the line too.

RE: Dinghy brakes or not?

It appears that in Washington State a towed motor vehicle does not meet the legal definition of a "trailer"! If that is true, trailer braking laws do not apply! I respect your drive for facts. However, the key word in your statement is "If". Should there be an accident it would be up to the State Patrol or others and then the judicial system to decide if a vehicle that is being towed qualifies as a trailer or not. Personally, I don't plan on risking it. If I ever don't have to much to do I may take the RCW and chat with the WA State Patrol, but I don't see that happening any time soon ;)

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

You might pull a few plugs nearby see if the wiring is running to them has come loose. In the race for speed they use the backstab connectors, I've had issues with those in my rig. I went through and changed each of them to use the side wire instead. Have you replaced the plug itself? Are the lines hot?

RE: Dinghy brakes or not?

Please cite the Washington State law. While you are at it, please cite the Washington State law that gives legal definitions regarding vehicles. I think this is the section of the RCW you are asking for RCW 46.37.340

RE: Bandon To Roseburg

Try visiting http://tripcheck.org a quick look on that highway shows both delays on Hwy 42 are under 20 minutes, probably not worth routing around it. What ever you do don't take the route north that Google shows, called Coos Bay Wagon Rd. If you must go up to Hwy 38.
