RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Drove home from camping and riding at Morrow County OHV. Have you been to Morrow much? It was one of our favorite places to ride. We started going just after it opened, by the time we sold our ATVs it had become huge and getting popular. Some great memories! Hoping they keep expanding the riding area too.

RE: Dave Smith Rant

I say just pick up the phone talk to a real person. Let them find what you want and email you the info. Be aware their stock moves fast. I was looking at several used Jeep Wranglers, guy told me that once he emails me not to wait long. Sure enough each was sold by the next morning. But what I did get was an on the ball sales rep, no games, but also didn't waste time on me making a decision.

RE: Fifth wheel bucking and jerking

Need to run it over the scales when loaded so you know where the weights are. Once you have that you'll probably find your problem, if not you'll in the top 5% that actually know their weights. Could be not enough weight on the tongue, but without weights it's just a guess.

RE: Who installs base plate?

RV dealership can probably do it. But if you'll visit the base plate manufacturer website most all will have a dealer finder, I did a quick look on your zip code and found 9 within a 50 mile radius for Roadmaster.

RE: The new Complete List of Toy Haulers

Forest River also makes the Salem Cruise-Lite in a toyhauler. I have the 251SSXL and it rocks. Thanks, it's interesting it's not listed on their Toy Hauler page, but I did find and confirm it on their other pages.

RE: Anyone Full timing with toy hauler and Harleys

A couple of summers ago we camped next to a full time toy hauler couple on the Oregon Coast. They did have a pop up tent with 3 sides they setup if they were staying for more then a night or two so they could park the bikes in the "garage" without loading into the toy hauler. Have fun on your travels!

RE: when 45 gallons is really 35 gallons!!!

What difference do you think that makes ? Clue: NONE Maybe not in Florida, but here I've been asked by a few rangers to water the plants in the desert and backwoods. Not all of us camp in sardine can style RV parks, many of us are desert or dispersed camping. So it's always worth understanding the situation before applying your own view on it.

RE: '05 Dutchman Classic 35SRV Toy Hauler

It's 12 years old that's the biggest issue, I can't recall any massive ongoing problems. Best bet is to grab a PD Check List and spend a few hours going over it before you make an offer or hire an inspector to do it.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

So many possibilities, see a Doc and vent your RV now. High levels of CO can make you dizzy, give you headaches or cause flu-like symptoms. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include: Headache, Dizziness, Fatigue, Shortness of Breath and Nausea. Get your Carbon monoxide detector checked or just buy a new one. You should also have a Propane gas detector, same as above checked or new, they don't last forever. Same as your smoke detector. As mentioned mold could be an issue too.

RE: Trax toy hauler by Frontier

I did a search in the archives, here is what I found. As you'll see it wasn't a very popular unit so its going to be hard to give you much information on it. Appears they were made in Longview, Texas and the company is out of business. There was one owner that had one, but that was back in 2009 and he wasn't very active. They were a FEMA trailer company, I'm not sure if I'd consider that a good thing or not though. Appears they got the contract in 2009 and we out of business around 2010. You can grab a PDI Checklist here or find others around. I'd do a very through inspection. Up to you, I'd probably keep looking unless it was a total steal of a deal.

RE: Landing gear failure and zero gravity problems

So during this 63 days what's the report from the dealer? Status of parts? I understand some parts can take a while, but almost seems it should go back to the factory.

RE: when 45 gallons is really 35 gallons!!!

I'm not sure what's up with your pictures, they should start with http:// though How big is your water heater? If it's 10 gallons there is part of it. I agree 30 isn't enough.

RE: Unable to post new topic in RV Lifestyle

Hi cathanas the RV.net forums are available through a few other portals. I've run into issues like you, but if you go to forums.woodalls.com you can use the same RV.net login there and should be able to post without issue. That may solve your problem.

RE: Ready Brake cable failure

I've read a few stories like with with Jeeps, and others too. If you haven't yet, toss in "Ready Brake cable failure" into Google.

RE: Best route from Kansas City to Seattle

Been there done that! We moved to KC from Everett years ago, we went through Boise, SLC and Denver to KC. We just drove to Denver following our same route this summer, its long but very doable. We also have driven I80 through Lincoln to Larime, preferred that route. We also drove through Montana/SD. I personally didn't enjoy that drive as much. Google shows 3 routes on Interstates, all are very doable with a U-Haul. Do pay attention to wind warnings, on our drive back (with our car) the winds were bad, many trucks and RVs had hunkered down in near overpasses. Enjoy the trip!

RE: Onan 5500

RE: 2017 Jeep Wrangler

As of yet Roadmaster hasn't put anything up about the 2017s. But you can read the install manual for the 2016s here.

RE: Looking at buying a Weekend Warrior????

The current "owner" of the name Weekend Warrior, The RV Factory, has nothing whatsoever to do with Mark Warmoth who was the founder and original builder of Weekend Warrior. Mark now own Extreme Warrior. RV factory bought the name rights, beyond that they are not the same RVs. Welcome to the forums! I'd highly recommend spending some time and reading through various posts, you'll begin to get some idea of common issues and some of the more popular brands that are discussed. Quality is highly subjective, and changes over the years. What was a great product a couple years ago might have issues today. You'll want to do some inspection of your RV when you get close to buying, the key is to do your own PDI (we have help on those) before you sign any paperwork - once you own it then you're dealing with warranty and not with the dealer trying to get out the door.

RE: Grand Design v Rockwood

Forest River has many lines of product for entry level to higher end. Shooting at them with a shotgun seems to hit them all, which is unfair. We had a Cardinal for 11 years and loved it. Chris Very true, but comparing a product that was made 11 years ago today carries the same overall risk. Often comparing apples to oranges. Each needs to be evaluated against set standards. I fear the quest for lighter and cheaper has had a very significant impact compared to similar units from 10 years ago. Traded one problem for another.
