RE: Grand Design Momentum , Think Twice Before BIG Mistake

A very thorough PDI is the best way to avoid getting caught in a warranty nightmare All of what you said is good info! I'll add one tweak. Doing your PDI before you sign the acceptance and loan (if any) paperwork is key. They will work hard to get things fixed to get the RV sold, but once you sign for it and own it then it's all about the warranty process.

RE: Purchasing used Weekend Warrior Toy Hauler

I can't help with the weights but I'm sure some of our members can, you can also try to Advance Search using the Archives from over a year ago. Also just wanted to make sure you'd seen the WW Repairs which addressed the lawsuit but more important has been a good repository of information for WW owners and buyers. Good luck with the search and purchase.

RE: DRV factory tour

You say Weekend Warrior doesn't crank them out to fulfill a daily quota, but didn't they have huge delamination problems a few years back? Two different companies now. The new company basically just bought the name, maybe the floor plans but Mark Warmoth is not affiliated. His new company is Extreme Warrior.

RE: Need Help with Small Toy Hauler Purchase

I won't say that all sales persons lie, but over the years the RV industry often dramatically fudged weight numbers. I think it's improved but it's still not totally trustworthy. Dealership could get it weighed, or they may have portable scales already. You can request this be done as part of an offer, by making it contingent. The other factor is your vehicle limit of 5k might be less fuel and passengers. Is that number coming from your hitch rating or the door sticker?

RE: New addition to the "family"

First of all congrats, great that they are continuing the family legacy! I'll be curious if my kids follow or not, still have a few years to think about that though.

RE: Dip pan won't drain

Is this a residential fridge or typical RV style fridge? I ask since the residential style are becoming more common and might help in answering your question.

RE: Towing Work and Play 18EC

The airbags won't help with sway. That 18c is still a 24' 2" trailer, I'd get the equalizer hitch to be safe about it. Depending on that you're loading and where the tanks are at it's a lot of unknowns. Assume you have a good trailer brake controller already. I've been in a horrible sway situation once before, I wouldn't tow without something to prevent sway. Distributing the weight isn't a bad idea either.

RE: stuck landing gear - 2007 Raptor 3612 (aka cha ching?)

I bent two of the legs of my landing gear, but it's been 10 years so my memory is gone so I can't help you through the replacement. Good news is that a bunch of Raptor owners have had this issues. Hopefully somebody can come along to help you out.

RE: Keystone Fuzion/Raptor locking gas tank caps

From Badhabt comment I grabbed some old threads from the archives, found one post that might be helpful from another member, below is the link to all the threads. The Stant locking gas cap # for a Raptor 299 is 11501, appears the old part number is close to the one you ordered. Please do let us know if it works. Vented is the key issue.

RE: traveling with water

I have plenty of tow vehicle (500 hp Kenworth) but I would never consider pulling any distance with full tanks cause I'm pretty sure the tanks would be gone by the time we got to destination. Cyclone 3912 Are you saying you're Cyclone is that poorly built? I hauled full tanks with our Raptor all the time, when I had to, never had an issue.

RE: traveling with water

I hear Dave's new beautifull toyhauler holds a hot tub in the garage, i wonder how much water that holds? ;) It's up on the roof. The supermodels need their sun. How do they know when to duck while going under an overpass? Two honks of the horn?

RE: traveling with water

Cousin Eddie doesn't dump his tank till it's full. Thanks for the reminder and making me laugh! http://www.moviepilot.de/files/images/0627/2035/randy_quaid.jpg height=200

RE: traveling with water

Kudos to Skyline, I found some of their owners manuals are still online, even one dating back to 1968! I couldn't find any 'rules' but the owners manual for one Rampage and it talks about partial water in the tanks. If possible, totally fill or empty the water tank to minimize “sloshing,” which may affect towing stability.If possible, empty holding tanks to minimize “sloshing,” which may affect towing stability. I assume the OP bought this used, which now makes me wonder if it might have been a rental. Back when I bought our 2005 Raptor I looked at a Rampage, I sure don't recall any rules when I went through the unit back then.

RE: GoToMyCamp.com - Is it gone?

As an alternative you might check out Poles & Holders they've been around for a long time and have a very good following among the folks in the Toy Hauler forum.

RE: Tow a Wrangler Unlimited with 30' gasser?

Have you checked your hitch to make sure it can handle the roughly 5,000# of the Wrangler? I love my Wrangler, but do be prepared for a big change in MPG as a daily driver. I love my Jeep, but just go into it with your eyes open. If you can rent a Jeep so you can make sure you will like it. My Jeep is the first vehicle I've had that I've really enjoyed driving every day and I can't wait until the top and doors come off :)

RE: 2016 Suburu Forester NOT listed as Dingby?

I was hoping you at least knew who might explain this change to us end users, or have some idea how to work this up the food chain. Your best bet is to use the Contact Us and write a letter to the editor. That said you're best bet is doing what Subaru says, anything else is just an opinion and they won't know all the in/out and changes. It's just a resource, the Owners Manual the factor are your legitimate source. I know you emailed Subaru before, you might email them back and emphasis you are looking to or Recreational Flat 4-Wheel down towing information.
