RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

Looks awesome. Weird to see propane tanks on that side. Is that where they are plumbed to?

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

Awesome pix and great work. Are you going to put the ladder back on? If so, don't you need to run some 2X4's in line with the ladder holes? I would put the ladder on but I didn't get one when I bought it... They didn't bother to caulk up the holes either when they removed the ladder... Lol Make sure you seal them up. I'm sure you will. You seem pretty together on this stuff. Kudos.

RE: 15000 lb Toy Hauler Braking Question

There is a difference in 4 wheel and 6 wheel Brake Controllers. You may not have full voltage with your stock controller. You can check with voltmeter at trailer female plug on TV. As stated above, brake adjustment is also important, but you should never lock the trailer brakes on hard braking. Wiring is also important, but make sure your start with the right Brake Controller. The OP has a F450. I can guarantee the controller is rated for a 6 wheel trailer. That truck was built to tow.

RE: Extended Stay

Not sure where to place jack stands for long term, but don't put them under the axles. Somewhere along the frame. Also get one of the Triangle things to go under the pin.

RE: Toy Hauler Suggestions for Ram 1500

Folks can justify things anyway they want. They can say "I will only haul this and nothing more". More times than not, people come back in 6 months or a year and say "should have bought the right truck in the first place." I have been on this forum for a long time. I have seen this done many times. I did the same thing. Bought a F250, the learned about weights. Bought a F350, then got a big 5th wheel. Said the heck with it, bought another F350, but dually this time. Now I won't ever go back.

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

Those pix are exactly what I expected to see. That is many years of sitting out in the elements with no maintenance. weekendwarriorgear.com would be a start. Or like I said before, contact Jim in California and discuss with him.

RE: 15000 lb Toy Hauler Braking Question

Sounds like everything is working normally. I can get my trailer brakes to lock up. Hi lincster. You can lock up your trailer brakes, but I can't. In your experience, can some 15000+lb trailers lock up and others can't? Thanks for replying Larry Yah, my buddy has the same trailer as me and can't lock his up.

RE: Looking into a TH

For comparison, my Sandrail has the following dimensions: 2800lbs 16' long 94" wide 78" at the tallest point I have no problem putting that in my hauler. Fits easy.

RE: Toy Hauler Suggestions for Ram 1500

"1/2 ton truck" and "toy hauler" do not belong in the same sentence. Rob Exactly right. People that disagree don't really have a clue on real world weights.

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

The genny is designed to be run with the cover on and the door closed. I have ran mine this way for 11 years. Even in 115F heat. You have something else going on. Carb gummed up again?

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

Check the roof out as well. If the caulking isn't checked often, it will crack and let water in as well. I have the same year trailer, mine is just a tad longer. Have you had any issues with wood rot in yours? No, but I bought my trailer brand new and it has been under covered parking since day 1 of me bringing it home. I also check and reseal anything 2X per year, roof, sides etc. I am very anal about that stuff. I run my genny, under load, 30 min per month when I am not using it. I do wheel bearings/seals and grease the suspension every year. Genny oil/filter and air filter gets changed out every year.

RE: Toyhauler weights

Federal law starting in 2009 required all trailers to have a yellow label affixed giving the true weight as it rolled off the line. Before 2009 lots of manufacturers fudged the numbers. Weekend Warrior was ordered by the feds to issue new weight labels to owners of their trailers.Weekend Warrior was ordered by the feds to issue new weight labels to owners of their trailers.The label they sent for my 2006 was 100 pounds more than the original but still not accurate. Hmmm, never got an updated tag. I wonder how I can chase one down? HAHAHAHA. Send them an email and see how long it takes for a response....

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

Have you guys had any luck with removing the carb, soaking in carb cleaning, blowing through with compressed air? I imagine it's a pretty tiny carb... Is there a drain on the fuel tanks underneath or do I have to pump the gas out? You can disconnect the bottom of the fill hoses. That will drain it quick.

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

It looks like it sat outside with no ladder on the front. Unless someone filled the holes up with silicon, there is water under your front cap. Hard to tell from the pix, but if there is any waviness or "bubble" looking areas, that is rotten wood underneath there. Look around carefully on the inside, if there are any brown streaks, or soft spots, water has gotten inside. Where are you located? If in California, probably worth the trip and money to take it to Jim Goodwin. VIP RV Service. Menifee CA. You can google his website. Used to build Warriors for a living. Knows them inside and out. At least he can give you an idea on how much is wrong with it.

RE: Just purchased my first hauler a 2006 WW

It probably won't start, not after sitting that long, but you can try. Probably easiest to replace the carb, then it will run just fine. 1 fill point is to go to your 40 gallon fuel station, which feeds the pump on the passenger side of the trailer. The other fill point is for the 20 gallon fuel station that is dedicated to you generator. If the gas is that old, probably best to drain both tanks and start with fresh. Put a bunch of bleach in the fresh water tank, along with 150 gallons of water, and let it sit for at least 24 hours. Run this through all of the lines and faucets. Drain and fill with fresh. Repeat 2X. Have fun!!!!
