RE: Pin weights

Dealers will say anything to make a sale. Never listen to one. Come on here to find facts. I have posted many times that stuff in the garage wont change pin weight on a 5er. I load 3400 lbs of toys in my trailer and with 150 gallons of water, my pin goes from 2700 lbs to 3450 lbs.

RE: Fuzion Toy Hauler Pin weight

Too much trailer, not enough truck. Only way to know the weights is go to a scale. My guess is 3600lb pin weight when loaded and full water.

RE: Fresh water fill up

If you are worried about 1000lbs, you don't have enough truck and you have bigger issues to be concerned with other than water weight.The weight of the water must be borne by the trailer, its suspension and tires. And I compute 1,328 pounds, which is heck of a load. I also have lots of tire on my trailer. 2680 X 6 = 16080 lbs worth of tires just on my axles.

RE: Fresh water fill up

lincster. What are the towing spec's of your TV from Ford? GCWR of 30000 lbs. GVWR of 13000lbs. Truck with full fuel and 5th wheel hitch weighs 8360 lbs.

RE: Fresh water fill up

I always fill up at home. I have enough truck to not worry about the extra weight. If you are worried about 1000lbs, you don't have enough truck and you have bigger issues to be concerned with other than water weight. You might take a look at my signature, I probably have a little more truck than you do. My concern is my 2700lb. Useful load minus 1170lbs of motorcycles, minus 420lbs of generator/toy fuel, minus 100-200 lbs of food and gear, and after you add them up, I am pretty close to my gross weight. If I decide to add some batteries or other equipment, I will have to start limiting some weight and the easiest place to start is the water tank. The concensus seems to be 'take it with you' so I guess its time to load up everything and head to the scale. Anytime u want to pull a 7% grade, let me know, pretty sure I will walk away from u. And I have plenty of truck for my hauler.

RE: GOOSENECK TO FIFTHWHEEL ADAPTOR

Lots of folks had this issue. 5th wheel trailers are designed to use 5th wheel hitches. Gooseneck trailers are designed to work with gooseneck hitches. Seems pretty obvious to me.

RE: Tires; revisited; yet again

I didn't post up a post or a pix, but it happened to my buddy, as we were going to the dunes, to boondock camp. In AZ, speed limit is 75mph. So that is what I do. It was 93F outside, we were doing 75mph, he lost 2 tires on that trip.... ST tires. I run XPS Ribs on my trailer, and I run fuel fuel, 60 gallons, and full water, 160 gallons, and a 2700lbs Sandrail, and 2 400lbs quads....... :)

RE: Advertised TH tonue weight

Bought a sherline trailer tongue scale and the TW came in at 1400# unloaded. Added 180 gal. of water and it added another 300# to the TW.. Those numbers are right in line. When I had my tow behind, triple axle hauler, I was seeing similar weights.
lincster 04/02/14 01:01pm Toy Haulers
RE: My first trip out, very overweight.

I tow about the same weight when I am fully loaded. Wind, semis... nothing makes me feel like the trailer is moving my truck around. I also have 3.73 gears and don't need any more. I can pull a 6% grade at 65mph and still have throttle left. Buy a dually and leave it stock. You won't have anymore issues......

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

What's the warranty on a ST tire? About 100 miles

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

LT tires seem to be more expensive and the RIB is way out of my budget. Maybe I should start a new thread istead of hijacking the OP... Probably a good idea. FYI.... The Ribs are expensive. However many folks have gone with the same commercial grade all steel ply carcass tire like the Bridgestone Duravis R-250 or the M895 at a lower cost but the same long term reliability. I will do that when I have to replace my Ribs.

RE: Tires; revisited; yet again

Hahaha. Go visit michelins website and look at the comments under the Ribs. There is a comment that someone put the Ribs on their trailer and got rid of the ST tires. If Michelin didn't want them on trailers, don't think they would take that down????

RE: Atwood water heater Thermal cutoff

I have 15 of them in my trailer all crimped and ready. Where do u live? I will give u one if u want to drive to east valley. Thats a generous offer lincster. Thank you. 15 of them little buggers... you must of found the supplier for the links. I did a little searching and also came up with what looks like the same/similar fuse-able link. But much rather just get one from you all done with terminal ends... lol http://www.newark.com/panasonic/eyp-2bn082/fuse-thermal-86-c-2a-250v-axial/dp/90R8624?aa=true&categoryId=800000004761 I'm in s Fl now, and wont be back in Phoenix till next month, the last dune trip of the season for me. I stay on the NW side of Phx in Surprise. But if you can/want, pm me your address and I will send you a addressed stamped envelope and gladly include the cost. I'll send u a PM. Don't worry about cost. I bought them years ago for cheap.

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

Here is a good article that explains much: ST vs. LT No need to read article. There are just too many testimonials of blow outs with ST tires. Photos like those posted above are all to common. Many have upgraded from marginal/inadequate ST tires to LT tires and resolved all their blow out issues. You won't find any threads of someone using LT tires that went to ST's to solve their problems. Exactly. No need to read articles. No need to get dizzy thinking about it. Just listen to people with real world experience and go with LT tires and never look back.

RE: Tires; revisited; yet again

I have seen at least a dozen ST tires blow on toyhaulers. No thanks. LT tires is what me and most of my buddies have switched to and the issues went away. No one I know has gone the other way. So I can't give any real world experience there.

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

Bit of an update. I went to my tire distributor. He is a large distributor stocking millions of dollars of tires and also a full service tire installation center that does trailers every day. I showed him the thread and the other linked thread as well. He advised he will not put LT tires on a trailer. He also advised it is illegal. At least in this state. May even be a Federal law about going to other than OEM rated tires. If a trailer comes to him for inspection without ST tires it will fail. He wasn't going to get drawn into a debate, but his first question after looking at the load ratings published in the thread was why would you give up load capability and sidewall strength? I also went by the local RV dealer and every new trailer I looked at on the lot had ST tires; NONE had LT. Got me thinking about liability and if an LT tire blew and caused a serious crash the resulting investigation either by authorities or the insurance companies may call this into question. Not worth it. My position is do whatever you want on your own rig; we're all adults. I'm sticking with the ST's. Goodyear G rated 614 LT tires say "for trailer service" on the sidewall. What am I missing here? More importantly for you, what is your "Tire Expert" missing? Exactly. Wow.
