RE: 2003 totoya sr5

From the 2003 Tacoma owners manual. http://www.ttguide.net/images/books/1/4/index.55.gif Your vehicle is not designed to be dinghy towed (with four wheels on the ground) behind a motorhome. NOTICE Do not tow your vehicle with four wheels on the ground. This may cause serious damage to your vehicle.

RE: Fuzion Black tank leak

Dealer is going to do the job. They did contact Keystone and there are no records of which tanks are in which units. Yikes, how sad is that they have no idea of what parts they slap in an RV. Then again having owned a couple Keystone products I'm not totally surprised. Glad you got the part number and getting it taken care of.

RE: Fuzion Black tank leak

Dan, without dropping it I fear it's just a wild guess. It does seem like the dealer should be able to contact Keystone to find out which one was installed in that model year. Is the dealer being lazy? If you are doing it yourself that might be the case.

RE: Prime Time Spartan Question(s)

Or there are just not that many owners or people are off camping :) I ran a search, here which sort of confirmed my thought that there are not that many owners. You might see if anyone in that list has the unit you are considering and drop them a message.

RE: DIY patio on 2011 Raptor 300ML

I made my own on our 2005 Raptor with some cables. I never had an issue with it. While it was fun in a few situations, I much preferred to be out by the campfire.

RE: Do not use awnings in heavy rain?????? Really???

wildviking one of the things I'd say having been raised in the NW is we really don't get "Heavy" rain that often. We get a lot of drizzle and some moderate rain. Having lived in Korea, Japan and Missouri I can honestly say I'd never seen rain in Oregon or Washington like I did in those three places. So I think you're probably fine using it in the Northwest rain, but if it starts to get heavy it's time to bring it in.

RE: anybody towing without a WDH?

Yes but if you can't tow your trailer without a WD hitch should you be towing it? Yes. If you're within manufacturers recommendations why not? For example the Ford F150 limits towing a trailer without a WDH to 5,000# and 500# of tongue weight. However with a WDH that jumps up to #12,200 and #1,220. "(1) Hitch receivers do not include a hitch ball or ball mounting. The vehicle owner is responsible for obtaining the proper hitch ball, ball mounting, weight-distributing equipment (i.e., equalizing arms and snap-up brackets, sway control system) and other appropriate equipment to tow both the trailer and its cargo load."

RE: I am new to rv's Fiberglass vs metal siding

fiberglass vs metal siding It used to be that metal siding meant wood construction (which is a whole other debate) but today you need to ask or verify if the frame is all aluminum or not. Fiberglass generally is easier to clean and a better insulator. Metal is almost always going to be cheaper and it weighs less. Fiberglass, if not done correctly, can result in delamination. However the processes today are much better then they were 10+ years ago when it was more common, but it can still happen. Today seems most of the higher end units are fiberglass. sierra sport and weekend warrior Assuming you’re talking about used? It will just depend on the unit and how well it’s been maintained. Be sure you read the thread in the main forum that stuck at the top called WW Repairs, you need to know about some of the problems before you jump. I don’t think the 5ers were part of the lawsuit, but some built during that era might have issues. Many members here still own WW’s and they get used daily. 28-32ft without a garage You will find very few 5ers in that length range, most will be bumper pull. This may limit your selection. Tandem vs triple axle? Depending on the weight rating of the axle a triple will give you more weight to haul and handle. For what you are looking at you might be fine with a double axle, it all just depends on what you’re hauling and how heavy the trailer is. Back when we were shopping for our Raptor I really liked the Jayco hauler, but it was on a double axle and that made me nervous. The next year, after we bought our Raptor, they Jayco switched t triple axle. I have a f250 with a 7.3 powerstroke for a tow vehicle Wish they still made those engines! Before you jump and buy anything you need to get your weight ratings for your truck and tires. An F250 doesn’t automatically mean you’re set. But one you know your weight capacities then you can shop with more confidence. Your owners manual is your friend regarding this. A few other things to do before you buy. Read up about water leaks, type of roofs, cheap what we call china-bomb tires, research and educate yourself and ask questions along the way too. Welcome aboard!

RE: Wkend warrior TH modifications

The photos are hosted on Racorman's photobucket, appears he's pulled them. Since that thread is 10 years old it's what's to be expected. He's still an active member so you might PM him to see if he still has the photos, he's now a Class A owner so may not see this thread.

RE: HELP!...What can I do to keep fridge cold and food safe?

Few things I've learned traveling in 100° plus temps. One of the simple fridge fans can make a big difference, I put so it "blows" over the fins inside the fridge. Do not place items that are not pre-cooled in the fridge. We try to freeze and pre-chill everything before we load it. I've found that laying frozen water bottles on the bottom of the freezer seems to help keep everything cool. We take a cooler for all beverages, rotate water bottles in/out of the freezer. Limit opening the fridge as much as possible. If you are parked with your fridge facing the sun during the hottest part of the day try to provide some shade. In our case we made an awning shade to keep the sun off of that sidewall. Made a big difference. Not much you can do if you are driving and the fridge wall is getting beat down by the sun, other then change your driving time. Run on propane, it seems to do a better job keeping the fridge/freezer cool.

RE: Weekend Warrior FS2500 water tank repair

Might contact Jim at VIP RV Service he's regarded as a great WW repair guy.

RE: Starcraft ar-one 17th possible purchase?

Extended warranties are negotiable, but you need to determine the cost-benefit.

RE: Toy hauler Identity

I think they make some custom units, website says one of the 5ers is available in a 40' - but no photos.

RE: Toy hauler Identity

Perhaps one of the Original Weekend Warrior Toy Haulers or the current Extreme Warrior? You can find links in the main forum, Complete List of Toy Haulers.

RE: Toy Hauler Buyers FYI... Evegreen RV - Closed

The owners looking for warranty will really be getting shafted. Yeah the owners that just bought one are the ones I feel for, we all know a new unit needs a few things, but those folks will get nothing. I'm surprised so many RV mfg are still operating. A lot of units sitting on lots all over the place. A lot of used units out there, but a lot of owners are upside down on them and can't easily get out from under them. The new units seem to be moving from what I see on my drive by visuals. The reports are that sales have rebounded pretty solid. Even Evergreen was having good sales, but sounds like they were not making money on those sales.

RE: Toy Hauler Buyers FYI... Evegreen RV - Closed

Word from the Elkhart Truth Newspaper is that Everygreen has closed. What's unknown is what comes next, is there a potential buyer and would warranties be voided or not if the company is purchased. A few highlights; "Rumors about the company's demise began swirling on Tuesday... employees and county officials said EverGreen shut down its operations on Friday." "The company employed about 400 people" "warranties for EverGreen products would be voided and spare parts would no longer be available"

RE: Pulling Utility behind a Toy Hauler

Are you asking about towing a utility trailer behind a toy hauler trailer or behind the rig in your profile photo? If you're just wanting to find a utility trailer that is 102" you are going to be looking at a Car Hauler type of trailer.
