RE: Jacking up my 5er to R/R equalizers

So majority of members told you the correct way to do it. 1 person told you the wrong way to do it and you chose that way....... Hmmmmmmm

RE: Jacking up my 5er to R/R equalizers

I even told you not to and you still tried it? Did you seriously think the landing gear motor is powerful enough to lift the entire trailer off the ground?

RE: Westlake Load Range G Tires - good or bad?

That is what you do with cheap tires you can get for $100 each. Spend the money and get good brand name tires and not worry about tires for 6-7 years. Do you really go 6-7 years on your Michelin ribs? I've heard by many that tires are 3-4 years max regardless of brand/quality. I'm running some Firestones now and have about 2 years on them, keep them covered when stored and properly inflated but will probably replace regardless in 2 more years if I still have it. Just my .02, collateral damage is awful when they blow. I just went 6 years on my last set. Replaced these due to a blow out of 1. Set before that was 5.5 years. Replaced these due to sidewall cracking. Never lost one. I have owned my trailer since 2005 and have only gone through 2 sets of tires, as described above.

RE: Tire separated from axle

All to sheer at the same time? I find that hard to believe. Something was probably already snapped/cracked and driver didn't know it. I always torque my own trailer wheels and when I get my vehicles done at Discount, I watch them do it and ask to see the torque wrench to verify the setting.

RE: Tire separated from axle

I have also seen lug nuts cross threaded and ran down with a air gun. Will eventually cause studs to snap and tire and rim to go for a joy ride. "always refreshing to see a tire shop use a torque wrench for final setting. Stretched lugs WILL fail." What is the proper torque on 16" aluminum toy hauler wheels? 90-95 ft/lbs But check the wheel manufactures numbers directly.

RE: Garage size

If the carts are 48" wide, they will fit in the 8' wide garages, that is, if there are no obstructions on the side walls. Most TH's have HapiJack beds in the garage and the vertical channels sick out 1.5" from both side walls. That cuts your usable width down from 96" to somewhere closer to 93", leaving the need to have carts that are only 46" in width or less. Hope you find what you need. Linc is saying, when 1 cart is in all the way fwd. There might not be enough room to safely maneuver the 2nd one in. The ramp is not 102" wide neither is the door opening. You will almost have to drive straight in to get the 2nd one in without damaging the walls or the cart. Exactly what I am saying. Thank you much for clarifying.

RE: Garage size

Yeah, bikes on these forums, folks usually think of dirt bikes. You won't get 2 golf carts in a 10' garage. Why not if they are under 48" wide, should be able to get them side by side. The OP would need to measure the inside width of the toy hauler he's considering and then measure the width of both golf carts in use. width wise sure...but how long are golf carts? 8-10ft? I gave that answer on Page 1.

My door opening is only 96" wide and then it is only 2" to the wall. Good luck on getting 2 of them up in there side by side. I don't think they will fit. Dimensions aren't always the only thing to consider. Once you get 1 machine in there, can you maneuver the 2nd enough to get it in there? Not like you can drive them both straight in and call it a day.

RE: Garage size

I full size golf cart is like 5'4" tip to tail. I guess if you don't mind them rubbing on your ramp and garage wall, then 2 of them will fit in a 11' garage.

Run them 2 yrs max and swap out. $800 tires vs $3000 in damage? That is what you do with cheap tires you can get for $100 each. Spend the money and get good brand name tires and not worry about tires for 6-7 years.

RE: Resale (LOL) what is better bumper pull or 5th wheel

The only reason the BP seems appealing is you don't loose your PU bed. I have a 5th wheel and my bed is still there! no I cant put tall items back there but firewood, coolers, awning etc plenty of room. Ditto. I used to haul a kids quad, wood and a cooler in my bed, even with my 5th wheel hooked up. I love my long bed.

RE: Resale (LOL) what is better bumper pull or 5th wheel

I have always based my decisions on how much room I need for toys. That's why I went to a 41' 5er years ago and have not had to worry about getting something different. Fits my requirements so no need to sell it.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Before: After: http://i.imgur.com/7RsNSfOl.jpg Eternabond? or Dicor DiSeal? I bought a roll of Dicor for the same idea to cover the seam from the cap to the roof. Just curious what you used and your thoughts of the product...and any helpful "hints' THANKS Eternabond. I did both front and back ends the same way. Awesome product, really conforms around everything. My buddy put it on his hauler a few years ago. His sits in the AZ sun year round with no cover, still holding up great. Cleanliness is key to get good adhesion. I cleaned with soap and water, let it dry overnight and then cleaned with Acetone right before application. Apply lots of pressure after you put the tape down.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Is there an easy way to upload pix? I want to add my before and after from my work this weekend, but when I click the pix button, I have to get them from another site...... That is old technology. I agree! One of the biggest downfalls to this site. Complain to Marcus Lemonis, I'm sure he cares! LOL Is that the inventor of drag and drop pix? Cause that is what we need here.

One of our fellow Mods created a great drag and drop utility for this. **Click Here** Nice, works good. Thanks!!!!

RE: Space for lots of Toys

I could fit all that in my hauler. I have 21' of totally open cargo before the first cabinet.

RE: Toy hauler floor cleaning/maintenance

I would never use water. That is death in a toy hauler. I only do sand, so just a leaf blower. Sorry, no help.
