RE: Toy Hauler gas, oil and tire odors??

Owned my hauler since 2005. Never has smelled like gas or oil. Even when there is a spill, I wipe it up and the smell is gone in 20 min.

RE: Interstate speeds

My tires are rated at 99mph and the posted limit in AZ is 75. So that is what I do.

RE: 2007 Cummins Onan 5500 marquis gold gasoline generator

Very interesting akcooper9. If this works, people are going to be mad at you that they spent so much money over the years. LOL

RE: 2007 Cummins Onan 5500 marquis gold gasoline generator

If the carb sat with old gas in it for too long, carb is gummed up. I have read very few cases of people being able to get their carbs cleaned out of the very small orifices well enough to get the genny to run. Most have to buy a new carb.

RE: weekend warrior 5th wheel information?

951-294-1907 is his number. VIP RV Doc is the new name of his company. Not sure his exact location.

RE: weekend warrior 5th wheel information?

Ok, then your trailer never got the "frame upgrade. the gussets you see are normal and are standard. The upgrade adds more support in the wheel wells and adds cross bracing from side to side, under the trailer. Warrior's are notorious for having "saggin walls". It is a weird name because the root cause is the floor actually is pushed up over time. You can tell if you have it bad as you will see a gap between your counter and the wall, or the fridge and the wall. Some say if you bounce up and down in the back, by the ramp, and it bounces alot, then you have it. I'm not convinced of this. Anyway, you were asking for things to look out for and this is one. There is a guy, Jim, in So Cal that used to work for Warrior back in the day. He is doing his own thing now, but he does absolutley phenomenal work. If you really want to have your trailer gone through/upgraded or whatever, he is the guy to take it to. I will warn you, the frame upgrade runs about $3-4k.

RE: weekend warrior 5th wheel information?

Sounds like you are well on your way. Good job. Enjoy the trailer. I love my Warrior. Let us know if you have other questions.

RE: Help with flipping axles

Very nice Joe. Glad you had good luck with him. I have read/heard nothing but great things about Jim.

RE: weekend warrior 5th wheel information?

Yes, eternabond is awesome. Look in the wheel wells, if there is bracing from the frame up to the bottom of the wheel well, then the trailer is braced properly to avoid "wall sag". Glad you got a good trailer. Hopefully the genny runs. That is no hours and they are notorious to getting the carbs gummed up from not being used. I run my genny 30 min every month at a minimum. Even when we don't use it. You may want to pull a few wheels/drums off and check the grease. Repack and install new seals as necessary. Easy to do, just takes time.

RE: Toy hauler on a gasser?

Get a gas card that will give you points. LOL

RE: How much toy weight can a typical smaller toy hauler handle?

Not sure what you are defining as "small", but I have a 41' 5th wheel, so I guess mine would be "big"? I put my sandrail in it all the time, 2720lbs. The heaviest part of my rail is behind the rear axle of the toyhauler. Toyhaulers are designed to carry weight, so not sure why you think putting a lot of weight towards the back is bad?

RE: Trailer brake issues

I don't let anyone do my trailer bearings/brakes. They don't do a good job. You have a broken/bad wire somewhere.

RE: Page AZ

Went to High School in Page. Lots of riding around that area. No access to Grand Canyon. Wahweap campground is great and awesome view of the lake. Going to be chilly this time of year.

RE: Onan part numbers

I just replace my fuel filter on my 5500 and the Onan # is 147-0860, oil filter is 122-0836 That's not the fuel filter that goes onto the end of the fuel pump. That filter is to go inline somewhere, but not at the fuel pump. Power.cummins.com and look at the parts list specific for a genny. There is a field note for the 5500 that says "*At fuel pump use 149-2341-01; At carb replace filter with A029S253 adaptor"

RE: Onan part numbers

1671638 for spark plug. 149-2341-01 for fuel filter. Amazon

RE: dirtbike carrier on back of 5th wheel

My buddy did exactly that with a Banshee to the back of his Weekend Warrior. Added a receiver and then added 2 steel straps that went from the furthest edge of the holder to the frame on the hauler. Formed a triangle, if you can picture that. Never had any issues.

RE: How to lift each tire off the ground for service?

Does anyone carry all that cribbing needed to jack trailer by frame when laying on the side of the HWY with a flat tire OR jack it under the axle tubes at spring perches :H My buddy does. It is crazy how much stuff he has. I always carry the tie blocks. They come in handy. Then I can use the bottle jack from my truck if I need to. I did it last year on the trailer on the side of the road, lifted by the frame. :)

Very cool. Glad it worked out for you.

RE: How to lift each tire off the ground for service?

Never lift by the axle tubes. I also have a 6 ton floor jack, so plenty of jack. You wanna work on big boy stuff, you gotta have big boy equipment.Pish tosh, I've jacked under the axle tube at the spring perches with no issues whatsoever. Changed tires, added suspension improvements, checked brakes/bearings, all without jacking the frame. And a 6 ton jack is not "big boy stuff". I have a couple 12 tons, and a 20 ton. A 6 ton is what you use to jack up the axle. Then welcome to the big boy club. Do we need to compare other stuff now???Is this where the "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" starts? :B I'm not starting anything. I was ending it. Sorry to the OP. Back on track.
