RE: Onan 5500 won't crank

If you cranked it ALOT, you probably fried the starter. Agree with above, even if you fried the started, you should still have power to the start button. Try toggling the start button to the prime location. If you hear your fuel pump priming, then you fried the starter. If not, fuse somewhere.

RE: Question about Dodge Truck & Toy Haulers

1. Dually. 2. Don't ever listen to salesman. 3. Get your truck weighed and back calculate from there.

RE: Tow Vehicle for momentum 385th

Buy a new F350 and you won't have to worry about weights.

RE: one year with a 40' fifth wheel and dually

I don't use any tunes with my truck and I can hold 65moh on a 6% grade with no problems. But you are running a 2012 with the 6.7. That puts out the same hp stock as a well tuned 7.3. Yep. Buy a new truck and u won't have any towing issues. Lol

RE: one year with a 40' fifth wheel and dually

02 SRW 7.3 w/35" tires towing a 34' tow behind TH at around 13000# I am lucky to get 9 MPGs. No tunes. No tunes? I use the Edge CS on level 2. One time a few weeks ago I drove to the coast over the Oregon coastal range mountains in stock tune and the truck was absolutely pathetic. On the climbs we were lucky to maintain 35mph. With the weight that you're towing do you have the same performance issues? I don't use any tunes with my truck and I can hold 65moh on a 6% grade with no problems.

RE: Towing a cyclone 4100

Go weigh your truck 'camp ready' (you, passengers and any stuff that would be in the cab) That weigh ticket ($10-$12) will be priceless in figuring out what you can really tow within your trucks ratings. Weigh ticket will have: Front axle weight Rear axle weight and Total trucks weight. Compare those numbers to your trucks ratings Truck GVWR 10,500 minus actual total weight Truck FAWR 4,750 minus actual front axle weight Truck RAWR 9,350 minus actual rear axle weight With that 9350 RAWR you will have more available axle weight but will reach GVWR of truck quickly. Truck will probably weigh in around 7500# (or more) 10,500 - 7500 leaves 3000# before reaching GVWR That CY4100 lists a 'dry pin weight' of 3000# So before you put anything in that CY4100 you have max'd out your trucks GVWR. Your truck has a max tow rating of 15,550# (mfg. published number using 150# driver and base model). That CY4100 has a 'dry weight' of 14,595#. That is only 955# less than your mfg. magical max tow rating Look at the data plate on your trucks door. Weigh the truck....do you own figuring. You have plenty of rear axle..just not enough overall truck. Mega Cabs have lower ratings due to that MEGA CAB Can't compare 2006 against a 2015. Completely different engineering/frames/suspension/engines/transmissions etc. Apples and oranges Yes there are lots of big/heavy trailers being towed by 2500 and 3500 Most, if they would be honest and get weighed will be overweight The RV Safety & Education Foundation data indicates that 57% of all RVs on the road exceed one or more weight safety ratings. Additionally, the following exceed at least one rating: 60% of all tow vehicles 51% of all travel trailers 55% of all 5th wheel trailers 50% of all trailers exceed the GVWR After you get your real numbers (weighed) here is a 'tow calculator' to help figure what you can tow within ratings. If rantings don't matter....ignore RV Tow Check All of this info is exactly right and what people should be doing when asking "do I have enough truck?"

RE: Onan 5500 Randomly turned off and won't restart??

the wires from the geni to the fuel pump were producing more than 12v. Thus I simply wired the fuel pump to the batteries direct with a wireless switch in the trailer to turn on and off before/after starting. I was not interested in troubleshooting the voltage issue. cheers. Still lost..... When the genny is running, it is supposed to generate more than 12V. That is how gennys, alternators etc work. Check your alternator in your car when it is running, it should be putting out around 14V. Then check the positive at your battery when the car is running, also more than 12V. Oh well, if it works for you.

RE: Onan 5500 Randomly turned off and won't restart??

Thanks to everyone who gave me suggestions. Turns out the fuel pump died likely because my meter said it was getting too much voltage. Quick $40 fix. I wired the fuel pump directly to the battery with a wireless switch to make sure it only gets 12v. Cheers! Glad you're up and running, but you lost me. How does a switch make sure it only gets 12v ...? Are you plugged into shore power when you get "too much voltage" ? Yeah, I'm lost on this one also..... When a genny is running, your batteries see more than 12V's....???

RE: Pin Weight

I have no slides and my trailer is around 17k loaded. I have put mine on a CAT scale, I have 3400lbs of pin weight. For what it is worth.

RE: Tire replacement on Voltage 3200

XPS Ribs for sure. Stay away from any ST tire.

RE: Love my Toy Hauler.....except one "small" thing.

I have 50 gallon black and 50 gallon grey in my trailer. 7 days at the dunes with 3 of us and we don't fill up the black. Don't know what you are doing to fill up 32 gallons that quick. Grey will fill up over that same 7 day trip. Even with being careful. No dish washing, quick showers etc. Not sure you will have enough room to install a larger tank. A deeper one maybe, but make sure you have supports strong enough to hold more weight.

RE: Something to think about..LT or ST tires

I want and will always use ST tires on my toy hauler simply because I feel that what I read about tire design that the ST tires stiffer sidewalls are designed for the side loading or sliding sideways as you have to do with a tri-axle trailer making turns.. Wow. U have absolutely zero credibility with me based on statements like that. This doesn't even pass the common sense test.

RE: Something to think about..LT or ST tires

My Discount tire said "man, these are beefy tires". LT Michelin XPS Ribs on my trailer.

RE: Something to think about..LT or ST tires

I like to vacation on vacation. Not change tires. I prefer to go with what works. Exactly right!!!!!!!!!

RE: Ford PS 2015

My 2012 F350 diesel moves my 17,000lb 5th wheel like it isn't there. I can tow with the cruise on and it doesn't come out of 6th until I hit a decent sized hill. My old 6.0L would shift all the time. These new motors are awesome.

RE: 2007 Raptor Onan 5.5 Gen Issues

Upgraded fuel system???? Different fuel pump??? I call BS on that one. The factory fuel pump is more than adequate to use if maintenance is done on the unit. I change my primary fuel filter, air filter, oil and filter every year, about 150 hours. I change my fuel filter directly before my pump every 450 hours, whatever the manual says. I run my genny every 30 days for 30min with the AC on. I have done this ever since I have owned it and I have almost 1000 hours on mine.

RE: Tricky parking techniques for big trailers

I don't get myself into situations where I gotta turn the trailer sharp. Not with a triple axle trailer. Too hard on everything. Now what's inside- well that is a totally different animal! Drive it like you stole it! You know it!!!!!!!!
