RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

Empty trailer is still 1400lbs of tongue weight. Over what your WD system is rated and your receiver hitch. Just check your setup often.

RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

Looks like the wd hitch has 1000# and according to the Ford factory listing 1250# with WD. The guy I had bought the trailer from used this drawtite wd hitch for years with this trailer. Wow. Wayyyyy underrated.

RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

not uncommon to get a check light when you change tanks or run it dry. The igniter will try to light the pilot a number of times and if it fails to sense a flame due to no gas (air in the line) it will show a trouble code (check light) and shut down. turn it off and back on on gas and it should light. Before doing that bleed the gas line at the stove. Thanks, I didnt even think to bleed it using the stove. Was in the trailer trying to make sure everything works and noticed someone cut or disconnected the wires to the Propane and Carbon M sensors. I think i see why, when clicking the power off that little whine is kind of annoying. Debating on installing little power switches on them. Another question for all What does the tongue of your FSC3000s measure leveled? I was getting about 27 to 28 inches. My lady thinks the ground is unlevel, but seems pretty level to me. I think my hitch was to low and my WD not set up right which is why I had so much sag before. I was also told not to run my air bags for leveling with WD. only a few psi for ride comfort. Whats everyone opinion or experience running air bags and WD Hitches? No opinion on air bags, but I do have one for WD hitches and that trailer. I owned a FS3000, 2004. I had a tongue weight scale and measured my tongue weight in different configurations. 1. Empty tanks and no toys: TW = 1400lbs. 2. Full water tank and no toys: TW = 1700lbs. 3. Full water and 4 full size quads in the back: TW = 1400lbs. The point of this is you need a WD hitch with bars rated to at least 1400lbs. There aren't many hitches out there rated that high, but they do exist. I wont be hauling any toys this event. About half full on water. 10 Gal of gas. And loaded with my pyrotechnics gear. I was given a Drawtite WD hitch with this trailer from the previous owner. What is the rating on the bars and hitch head? Based on half full on water and no toys, I am willing to bet your tongue weight is going to be 1500-1600lbs going down the road. Good call on the receiver, I forgot about that one. I had to upgrade that also on my F350.

RE: Fuel Station Tank

Always full. Add stabil when it is going to sit for longer than 1 month.

RE: GM 2500 and TH owners

RinconVTR as a non-regular to the forum let me give you some insight. Over the years, many years, many of the regulars here know how many people have under-purchased a truck only to be caught with buyers remorse or worse a dangerous setup being way over loaded. Toy Haulers unlike other TT/5ers are notorious for being very tongue heavy and heavy over all. I was one of those owners at one point myself. This is also a bit of a wild, yet well-intentioned and informed bunch. Perhaps the "LOL" was missed when you read lincster's comment about working for GM. I don't think any offense was meant; its sort of the age old GM/Ford/Dodge teasing that goes on. In the end nobody really cares, once people are out on the trails then the debate changes to Motorcylces vs ATVs ;) While you may not like all the posts, on an open forum it happens. Specific questions help to keep things on topic, but when it comes to what truck and toy hauler are good, it's an open can of worms. Folks were trying to be helpful by asking for some more information. Very well said.

RE: Anyone seen a GD 376TH

RE: GM 2500 and TH owners

The 250lbs you might get in more payload, you will regret when towing between the gas and diesel motor. I doubt the DEF tank hangs any lower than some other components under the truck. I would think the Engineers would have thought of this already. It does, bout 3 inches below the frame. I work for GM, so with that said seems fitting to buy GM. I would quit. LOL!!!!! Well I didnt ask your opinion about where I should work. Seems as most wouldnt haul a jetski without a 1 ton dually diesel. Thanks for the help. And I never asked where you worked. Relax.

RE: 2007 weekend warrior fsc 3200

Yep, someone on glamisdunes.com did it. Basically built very short covers out of wood. Why not just take the droop out of your front end? That's what I do. My front end will go do to 81" wide with the droop taken out.

RE: Looking for feedback on a new toy hauler

36-38' length with a pin weight under 2500lbs..... Ain't gonna happen. My pin weight with an EMPTY trailer is more than 2500lbs..... and I have 0 slides. My pin weight will full water and my toys is 3600lbs.

RE: GM 2500 and TH owners

Gas motor because of payload and the looks of the DEF tank???? Wow, those are great things to base a decision on.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Lincster, how did you fix that fender flare? the first photo it looks cracked. Exactly what it did. It didn't break all the way through, just cracked. I didn't loose any large pieces, so we used fiberglass resin and just kind of worked it under the pieces and filled the cracks. Let that dry and then sanded it down. Then put bondo over the top of that. Once that hardened, sanded that down to match the other surface heights and to remove all of the swirl marks. Then painted over with some rattle can and put on new sealant. I am way happy with the way it came out. $50 and 3 hours later..... Wish mine were fiberglass so I could fix them that easy, they're injection molded plastic, tore a piece off one and cannot find a replacement for under 200.00 so I swapped them from side to side so I don't have to look at it while I'm camping. I was happy when I realized mine was fiberglass. Easy to repair.

Michelin XPS Ribs. Tires were 4 1/2 years old. Always checked tire pressure before going. Park under covered parking and park on wood.

RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

For power, buy an inverter. Plug it into 12V and charge cell phones, ipods, run small TV's etc. I got a 700W inverter off of Amazon for $50. Thing is awesome.
