RE: Fuel Pump Problem (not the gears)

I have a fuse for my pump. In my Warrior, it is in the main power box where the 50 Amp cord plugs in. 20A fuse for the fuel pump. It has to have a fuse somewhere.

RE: Xlr thunderbolt and srw

Power wise, no sweat. You said payload is everything. I can tell you with a big hauler with slides, you will be over the GVWR of a SRW truck.

RE: TPMS or change tire

I wouldn't worry about alignment. Ditch the ST tires and go to LT tires. Problems will go away.

RE: Tire Pressure

Max always. Towing my toy hauler with LT tires for 13 years. Always max pressure.

RE: towing

how do you weigh the tongue weight ? http://www.sherline.com/lm.htm http://www.sherline.com/images/LM2000pic.jpg width=640 That is the exact scale I have.

RE: towing

I also have a weight distribution hitch as well That has nothing to do with overall weights, GVWR, GCWR, tire ratings etc.

RE: towing

ok I will do the steps you showed me thank you for being patient Im new to towing. Just want to be safe when going camping with the kids where we go there is a huge hill we got to go up. thank you If u want to be safe, get a 1 ton diesel. Serious? I don't think that'll work either. Get a 5500 or you're asking for disaster! Lol To the OP, you're fine. Go camping. Yeah, serious. Do u own a toyhauler? If not, u don't know their weights.

RE: towing

Post up the actual numbers. Then we can go from there. To the OP. U are posting in a forum that that most don't have a clue what a toy hauler is. Anyone that says a 1/2 ton is good towing a wide body toyhauler, does not have a clue..... Sorry to be blunt, but it is true.

RE: towing

Don't tow that trailer with a 1/2 ton truck. That trailer has 1600 lbs of tongue weight and weighs 8000 lbs empty. My buddy owned that trailer and we weighed it both on a CAT scale and with a tongue weight scale.

RE: Tire and wheel experts???

I'm considering new wheels on my 2010 Fuzion TE II, factory wheels are 7" wide, new wheels are 6". Would there be any issues I could expect running a 1" narrower wheel? Why new wheels? What tire came on the trailer from the factory, and why do you feel you need to change sizes? I like the new wheels better than the factory and I got a super deal on them brand new. Might want to clean up those old 16 x 7" wheels and store them away, for when you see the LT light... jmo X2. Only a matter of time like lots have found out.... Most, the hard way.

RE: Update! SRW to DRW with huge trailer.

So you were over weight before (4000# GCW) with the SRW. Now you have 'converted' to DRW and tows better (wider wheel base on rear end) BUT your are still overweight because you still have a SRW (just wider butt) Band-aid fix. Exactly.

RE: 16" conversion with LT tires again

the rims I wanted were out of stock they told me a couple weeks at least, weekend warrior style so I decided in the interim to buy some new st tires, I actually had good luck with maxxis and westlake, turns out the new westlake st tires have a very similar design to the maxxis with a nylon cap, got 6 on ebay 225 75 15 10 ply E tires for 491.00 shipped to my door, then the next day my rims showed up........go figure. I'll use these for a year or so and then do the LT conversion, one thing I noticed on the westlake tires is the DOT code showed they were made 2 months ago and the max speed rating is now 75 mph vs 65 mph. The westlakes seem to be a very nice beefy tire much like the maxxis but around 80 a tire vs 130. no tax and free shipping too. When it comes to tires, u get what u pay for.

RE: 5th Wheel vs Bumper Tow - Weight

OP, You are correct that a 3/4 ton doesn't give much for pin weight. A 5er tows a whole lot better than a tow behind. If u r worried about tow ratings, look at a smaller 5er or just go with a tow behind.

RE: 16" conversion with LT tires again

I had that exact same trailer and did that exact upgrade. Everything fits and works great. No more worrying about tires after that.

RE: Here we go again, advice requested

Agree with Y-Guy on all aspects. If the toyhauler has the water tanks, or part of the water tank, in front of the axles and you tow with water, it won't matter how much weight you put in the back, your tongue weight will go up. I had a triple axle Weekend Warrior, 30' box, tongue weight was 1400lbs at the ball coupler. 120 gallons of water with no toys, tongue weight went up to 1700lbs. 4 quads loaded into the hauler, tongue weight went back down to 1400lbs. I have a Sherline tongue weight scale, so I was measuring right at the ball coupler. I have the same scenario with my current 5th wheel. 2640lbs of pin weight with no toys and no water. Full water and a 2800lb sand rail and 2 quads in the back, pin weight goes up to 3450lbs.

RE: Pulling with a full load of Water

I know we always want to top off the water as close as we can to where we will land, but how far is too far to pull with 110 gal of water and a loaded TH? When I had a toy hauler, I hated driving with full tanks - the truck was sluggish (gasser) That means u didn't have the right truck.

RE: Here we go again, advice requested

Titans are not built heavy duty enough to tow a decent sized hoy hauler. If u have to move batteries to reduce tongue weight, u don't have enough tow vehicle.
