RE: Model suggestions

Good thing you are looking at smaller trailers, a 40' with slides will probably put you over your tow ratings. I don't have any trailer suggestions, just addressing the weight police comment. :) I would be right at my max fully loaded with a 40 footer triple slide. I know people do it and in fact I talked to a buddy of mine who has the same truck and towns a 41 footer. "Oh you would be fine" he says, "I do it all the time with no problem". Maybe that's true but I have towed trailers that were too heavy for the tow vehicle and I don't want to be in that situation again. That's why we are looking to go smaller. To be honest we loved the 40 footer we looked at, I just don't want to tow it! Eric Ahhhh, the good ole "I got a buddy and he said it would be fine"..... Go put it on a CAT scale fully loaded and let me know. My 40', with NO slides, full water, a 2800lb sand rail and 1 full size quad, I am 17,800lbs for just the trailer. That would be over the tow ratings of your SRW truck. Why I have a dually. But, like you said, you are going smaller so you should be fine.

RE: don't buy an Attitude unless you want a bad attitude

Lol. Carry on with the complaining. These are always entertaining.

RE: I want Goodyear Marathons but......

Carlisle..... LOL Folks that have been around for a while will never trust those. I saw my buddy replace 4 tires on 1 trip. Yeah, I'm sure the tires were to blame. That's a good one! And I guess 3 generations isn't long enough? My family and I have run Carlisle tires as I've been alive. Not one issue on dozens of trailers. In fact, my ATV trailer just had a valve stem crack open at some point during a 3 hour Interstate drive and the tire looked shockingly normal until the tread and pressure was inspected. Thus, I continue to use buy Carlisle for all replacements on every trailer I own...which continues to grow in numbers and variety. Am I a fan-boy for Carlisle? Having experienced well over 4 decades of personal use and abuse, you bet am! Look at what you said.... ATV trailer.... Not a 13,000lbs+ toyhauler!!!!!! So, post up some weights that are comparable to toy haulers and we can talk.

RE: WW FB 3000 Question

Should be a tag on the axle housing somewhere stating the rating. Just take a set of bearings and and the seal some where, they can match them up.

RE: don't buy an Attitude unless you want a bad attitude

So you are complaining about a 2007 trailer? Do you think everything lasts forever? Trailers need work. I had to replace my fresh water dump valve cause it leaked. I had to replace the drain hoses for the water system, they rotted due to sun and time. Just normal stuff. Is your trailer stored outside? Sitting outside for 10 years is hard on something. You do realize that by your numbers, that is 2667 hours worth of work. Which is more than a full time job for 1 year.......

RE: First 5er, Weight Questions

Where are your water tanks located? In front or behind the axles? Water will affect the pin weight more than toys will. 2 axle or 3 axle? This will also affect pin weight. I think you will be right on the edge of staying within the tow ratings of your truck. I have a 41' Warrior, 3 axle. My empty pin weight is 2650lbs. Fully loaded with 150 gallons of water, gear, 2700lb sand rail (which majority of rail weight is behind the trailer axles), 1 full size quad (sitting right in front of the axles) my pin weight goes up to 3400lbs. I have put my entire setup on a CAT scale multiple times.

RE: Input Requested for help with a toy hauler

Don't to a scale and get actual weights, you won't be happy with numbers once you look at everything..... :( People usually only look at the GCWR, which is 15,600lbs, from what you stated. You also have to look at GVWR, GAWR and actual weights.

RE: Aluminum siding bulging out. Unsure how to fix

Water damage is causing it to bulge. I am willing to bet once it is pulled apart, all the wood has rotted. Can't repair just from the inside. The front cap needs to come off, at least. That seal is horrible and that has let water in. Over on glamisdunes.com, in the RV section, there have been a couple of people that have documented pulling their Warriors apart and fixing issues like this. Might be worth the time to do some searching.

Carlisle..... LOL Folks that have been around for a while will never trust those. I saw my buddy replace 4 tires on 1 trip. No thanks. I might put them on my wheel barrow. I would run the Maxxis.

RE: What's do you store the ladders while in route

On top of the bunk or on the floor, under the toys.

RE: Attitude water leaks in only when driving

Water is not supposed to get into the trailer at any point. So not sure what you mean by that statement. I'm sure you are getting water inside all the time, but you may only see it when you are towing. The roof vent acts like your roof on your house. It overhangs so water runs away from the vent. Sounds like you have a leak around where the fridge comes up through the roof. Look around that area and I bet you see a split in the caulk or roof material. If it is coming in from the bottom when you are driving, your wheels are throwing it up. Trailers have to be sealed and maintained over time. You have to check all seams and replace caulk as needed. Sounds like this wasn't done in the past.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

clicky I am rotating the clock spring you see on the bottom right of the carb. Where the red wires are connected. That is what my buddy told me to rotate. It seems to have done the trick. I have about 6 starts on the genny, both hot and cold and it fires up. allcool, yes, I changed out the entire choke assembly. All 1 unit. 2 large screws, take off the butterfly and unhook the vacuum hose. Easy to swap over. I do agree this was the original problem. My old diaphragm felt different than the new one. I didn't test it under vacuum, but it felt different.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

These gennys have both. A vacuum diaphragm and an electrical circuit. The butterfly for the choke is the issue. Not the butterfly for the engine. The genny starts fine cold. It will start hot, but I have to go out and rotate the choke butterfly open and then it fires right up.
lincster 03/03/17 02:56pm Toy Haulers
RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Well, now it won't start hot. The butterfly is completely closed. I don't get it. Ugh.

RE: Samson tires anyone dealt with them

Cheaper isn't always better. Depending on weight and how many axles. That is what you should base your tire needs on. Also, if you go to a G rated tire, you have to get wheels rated high enough.

RE: HELP WITH TIRES

ST tire? Maxxis. LT tire? Michelin XPS Rib or Bridgestone Duravis.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Thanks Hap. I have read the expected lifetime of the 5500 is 3500-4000 hours before it needs a rebuild or replaced. Valve adjustment can be done with the unit mounted in the RV cabinet. I have never done it, but a buddy has. Strabo, I totally agree with run it like a pony. People that brag about only have 240 hours on their 10 year old genny is nuts. That actually causes more problems than anything. Genny's are built to be run for lots of hours. My trailer is 11 years old and I have 1150 hours on it.

RE: Lippert air pin box

My buddy had that on his 40' Warrior and he loved it. Said it made all of the lurching and such go away.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Finally got it!!! Replaced the entire choke assembly and now it fires immediately and purrs like a kitten. No other adjustments needed or anything. Easy and free!!!! With used carb from a buddy. Lol
