RE: Electric dinette shakes coming down. Normal?

Some beds use pins to lock them in place, some don't. Without knowing more it's hard to say if its a problem with that unit or just missing some pins. What year make and model was the RV? Any chance you saw the brand name on the lift system?

RE: 2001 Thor wanderer actual weight

Also RVs of that area often used the weight of the base model, they didn't recalculate or weigh the actual RV based on the options that were added. So like the generator which is probably near the tongue wasn't counted along with awnings, etc. IMHO this was near criminal as many people bought something that weighed far more than their truck could safely handle. Thankfully today you don't see the same level of games being played, but it's still in your court to verify. I figure it's like Ronald Regan's line, Trust but Verify!

RE: Which option would you choose? New 2018 vs used 2018?

For me the roof is the biggest deciding factor; pretty sure even the most basic Winnie comes with a Fiberglass roof while my quick check of a couple Thor's showed a TPO Roof. I've had our Winnebago for over 10 years and have had no major issues. That said that was 10 years ago and things change. The other plus to Winnebago is they have their online access to floorplans; plumbing and other plans all online and available to download if you ever need them.

RE: Attitude/Lippert Coupler issues

Been there done that, but mine was a PullRite. I couldn't uncouple it, eventually I removed the pins from the bed and left the hitch hanging. Then I was able to work on it, finally I got the jaw to release and was able to lower it in to the bed of my truck. A good hammer is what did it. But in the end I found that the head had locked up and had to get a new one. I won't go into details but I did not end up with a warm fuzzy feeling about PullRite after that.

RE: Those who have a ramp patio, do you really use it?

I made my own with our Raptor, used it a couple of times. If I was backed up to a nice river or ocean beach I'd use it more, but that just wasn't how we camped. I don't think I'd spend a couple grand on one though.

RE: Age of RV for volunteer positions

The only way you'll know is if you ask. From my experience at some of the parks in Oregon I'd say it shouldn't be an issue. I think during times of the year they are challenged to get enough volunteers. But the homeless issue in Oregon has become a big issue, so they may have had to clamp down a lot more now.

RE: Keystone Design Issues

They could put in a small LP/12v/110v fridge, Pop up and Class B Campers have them, but they aren't as cheap as a dorm fridge. Score one for cost savings. I'd say the vast majority of Class A's I've seen have a box that can send the signals to the other TV with the press of a button, it's a wiring challenge but it works. Score two for cost savings, no box and they didn't have to hire somebody that knew what they were doing to install the wiring. As for the multiple connections, there should be one for Satellite and one for Cable/TV. So this is score three for cost savings. But like above, this is also so they don't have to have good wiring diagrams and a person that knows what they are doing IMHO. Sadly with all the glitz and glitter they put in the RVs it's a distraction for issues like you've found... until you are home and want to use them.

RE: Will I be disbarred?

It took us 20 months to finally conclude our 1-year warranty period. That must be the new math I keep hearing about ;)

RE: Will I be disbarred?

Hope y'all don't ostracize me! Congrats on the new RV. You defiantly won't be disbarred, ostracize or stripped of our Toy Hauler Membership. Heck I'm still here!

RE: Help determining value

As a reminder the forum rules do not allow for sale posts. I'm letting this one hang in there in hopes you are really asking for help in pricing and not a subtle for sale post. But any discussions about location, etc. cross that line. Please keep any comments limited the value of the trailer. Thanks!

RE: Garage Workshop

BurbMan just after we bought our Raptor in 2007 I came across a guy that had just what you're talking about. Pretty sweet setup, he made things on the road to sell while they camped, they were full timers. But the noise issue was an issue he said. The campground he was in when I saw him wouldn't allow him to run any equipment, and he was very undertanding. There were times he'd take the RV out and work on his projects. He said some campgrounds were ok with it. Even fully enclosed some of the equipment was loud. He talked about adding some 2" foam on the inside to see if that would deaden things. He did have everything bolted to plywood sheets that were then secured to the floor with bolts and extra power circuits. I think it's worth thinking twice about the noise and your neighbors. I know I would not be happy to hear somebody's saw going it at when I was there to camp, relax and enjoy the sounds of nature.

RE: Coleman 250TQ vs Forest River Wolf Pack 24pack14plus

In reality there is no such thing as MSRP that I've found. So anything is negotiable. As for the amount that's hard to say but generally speaking 20-30% of but off of 20k that's unlikely. But I'd sure go in asking at least 15% off and see where they stand.

RE: Coleman 250TQ vs Forest River Wolf Pack 24pack14plus

The other HUGE difference is the WolfPack has fiberglass sides vs the aluminum, that is a significant cost too, and generally speaking helps with resale too. The fuel tank is a big plus and means you're not carrying gas cans, but only you can decided if it's needed by you. I'm not sure where the quality comment comes from, but if you are going based on the Coleman name that is a non-factor, that is just a financial arrangement to use the name. The Coleman brand has nothing to do with quality. Dutchman makes the Coleman units. As far as price, you've listed the asking price my gut says you could probably negotiate them down to about the same price.

RE: Local Media Server

I'd second the use of Kodi since Plex requires internet. But that said if your media is already in iTunes you might get a mac mini and use it to share your media, then you can either use the ATV1s or pick up a new ATV3 or 4. They can then use the "computer" option to stream data. At home I use the mini to serve my media throughout the house and use the iTunes for some media and Plex for my older media. Plex is able to run on my FireTV and ATV4 without playing the sideloading game. However in our RV I fall back and use Kodi since Plex requires internet (which is a bummer). The mac mini serves the media right to my main TV, and the rear TV has an oder ATV with some media loaded on it, and the ability to access the rest via my in RV wifi, which just allows me to stream, but that is only used for loner stays.

RE: Purchasing trailer with no local warranty support?

95jersey, since a very large number of RV are built under two large corporations, Thor & Forest River, there is a very good chance that your RV can be serviced at any dealer that sells one of the sister brands. You can contact; call or email the manufacturer of the unit you are looking at and who the nearest service locations are. One of our local dealers will service any RV you bought even from another dealer, but the difference is that local buyers are the first in line for appointments, but that's really only an issue in the busy summer months.

Great pics as always! Looks like a fun time.

RE: Jeep Wrangler Prices

I don't feel fanatical about the decision one way or the other - for me it's just picking the most practical solution at this moment in time. Congrats and enjoy your new rig, the only thing that matters in the end is that you are happy. But when you get a Jeep let us know and we can give you the secret society wave ;)
