RE: Need weight verification Please!

Hey Linster most of these threads end the same way. Someone asks a question and they are given all the right answers but when someone agrees with PO it is over and done. Yet I still keep reading them. Aint that the truth!!!!!

RE: Need weight verification Please!

What????? Salesman say “just add air bags and you can tow anything”. That isn’t true!!!??? Lol

RE: Need weight verification Please!

Seriously??? Provide documentation? I think every truck manufacture already does that when they provide tables, weight ratings etc. Do u seriously think engineers that design brake size, rotor size, frame cross section etc, don’t use formulas? That is just an ignorant thing to say. I can say these things cause I have an engineering degree so I have done the math.

RE: Need weight verification Please!

I have never understood why people come on these forums, ask for input, are told by many people they don't have enough truck, but once some shop or salesman says "just add some airbags and a tune and you can tow anything.", that is good enough for them. You are right Joe, lots of people do it..... I am proud to call myself one of those that did the research, got the numbers, spent the money and did the right thing.

RE: Need weight verification Please!

In the 60s and 70s, there weren't 17,000lb toyhaulers.

RE: Need weight verification Please!

Only way to correctly do it by the numbers is to get weights. Take truck to a CAT scale, weigh it like you are ready to hook up to the trailer. Then do simple math. GVWR-truck weight=how much pin/tongue weight you can carry. GCWR-truck weight=how much total trailer weight you can tow. IMO, you need a dually. My trailer is 17,000lbs loaded with 3400lbs of pin weight and I am at 27,000lbs GCW.

RE: Could use some advice on jacking up a large TH

Magnets are not worn out. Not in that short of time. Bad connector or broken wire. Look at the obvious stuff first. Butt connectors etc. pull on wires and see if anything comes apart.

RE: 2016 Fuzion 371 pin box

The B&W is just fine, you need the part that bolts onto the pin box. My buddy ran the B&W with the Trailair Air Ride and it was awesome. Took all of the chucking out.

RE: Question About Generator

Did it come with the opening/hole for a generator? Any shop that specializes in Onan generators can install one for you. I would hope it is all prewired for it.

RE: Water tanks hitting axles

https://i.imgur.com/PZ4xEZCl.jpg Here is a picture of the middle axle and the tank riding on it. You can see the strap and also see how much lower the tank is than the frame rails. I will have to make the cross bracing and vertical supports to hold the tank. Should be easy with some angle iron and all thread and some bracing. I will tack the nuts so they don't come loose. Wow. That is just horrible. Strap with self taping screws holding it. They should be ashamed of themselves. My supports have all thread that is attached to the frame and go through the box supports and held on by nuts. I think there is 3 or 4 supports per tank. I will have to take a pix.

RE: Dexter E-Z Flex Triple Suspension Kit and fliped axles!

Lift the truck. Flipping axles on a tow behind is not the norm just for the reasons u r finding out. I would put it back. I had that trailer for 3 years and went to the dunes a lot. I never had a reason to want flipped axles.

RE: Onan Generator Heat

So I have my trailer home today doing some stuff. Ran genny for a while. I held a kleenex up to that hole that everyone is saying to cover with tape. Kleenex barely moves. I took my thermal gun across my door, side ways, temp variance of about 5F. Take it for what it's worth, but I don't think adding that tape does a whole lot. I still think how the OPs is mounted is the majority of the issue. But maybe it is the door material?

RE: Help with flipping axles

If normal on the road travel, 4-5" is fine. Off road, going through culverts, lots of articulation etc, I would want nothing less than 6". I have 7.75" between my bedrails and trailer. I have come close once, but I was just crawling so I was watching it closely.

RE: Best trailer tires?

Tire Thread!!!!! Yeeeehaawwwwwww!!!!!!! XPS Ribs on my trailer. If I did it again, Bridgestone Duravis 250. Cheaper than the Ribs but just as good.

RE: Help with flipping axles

Very cool Joe!!!! Glad it is working out for you. He won't steer you wrong. I have 2 buddies that have taken their Warriors to him and the results are amazing.

RE: That Fuel Station Issue Again

Do any of you exercise your generators twice a month including using your pump? Not twice a month, just once, and only the genny.

RE: That Fuel Station Issue Again

My fuel pump won't work once the sun has been on the fuel station door for a couple of hours but it works fine in the morning when the sun is on the other side. Always.Anybody else have this problem with pump not working when sun is on the door but fine otherwise? If so, what was the fix? Mine turns slower when it is really hot out, but it works.
