RE: Lippert air pin box

My buddy had that on his 40' Warrior and he loved it. Said it made all of the lurching and such go away.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Finally got it!!! Replaced the entire choke assembly and now it fires immediately and purrs like a kitten. No other adjustments needed or anything. Easy and free!!!! With used carb from a buddy. Lol

RE: New Toy Hauler and New to Camping

Equipment will be based on what you are going to do. I don't camp in RV parks, so don't know anything about equipment for that. I take lots of tools. I have a compressor, nitrogen tank, all of my hand tools, oil, air filters, belts, alternators, helmets, flags, anti freeze, fuses, relays. For inside stuff, all plastic utensils, paper plates, red solo cups. Blankets, sheets, flash lights, batteries, DVDs and a TV, flavor wave oven, goggles, coats, beanies. Proper ways to do things: Always check tire pressure before each trip. Propane level. Gas in toy hauler. Water in toy hauler. Give fridge over night to cool down before packing cold foods. My inputs.

RE: Real world toy hauler weights

You are asking good questions, but making mistakes. Asking real world weights is good. Going to manufactures weights is bad. Real life example and weights. My 2004 Weekend Warrior FS3000 had a tongue weight listed from Warrior of 950lbs. I bought a tongue weight scale and measured at the ball. No water, no toys etc. Actual tongue weight scale was 1400lbs. Full water, no toys. Actual tongue weight scale went to 1700lbs. 4 full size quads. full water, Actual tongue weight went back to 1400lbs. I bought a WD system capable of 1500lbs and bought a new receiver for my truck to match the weights. My trailer had 3 axles. My buddy has a FS2600 by Warrior, 2 axles. Same scenarios tested as above. 1700lbs 2100lbs 1700lbs So, as you can see, real world tongue weight is much different than a brochure. IMO, any full size toyhauler is too much for an 1/2 ton chassis vehicle. I see. The toy hauler is a winnebago spyder 24fq. Could i have the trailer weighed at the dealership? I know it will be empty but it could give me a starting point i guess? Thanks again for your help. Some dealerships do, some don't. Depends on how bad they want to make a sale. If you tell them you have to have the weights before you will buy it, that will really show you how bad they want to work with you.

RE: TH with outdoor kitchen and under 40'

I don't have an answer for you. Just wanted to mention though that you should keep an eye on any outdoor kitchens you view and check to see that the sinks are plumbed into the gray tank. I don't have an outdoor kitchen, but my brand (Crossroads) has a lot of angry owners whose outdoor sinks drain strait down to the ground. A lot of people plumb their showers straight to the ground. What's wrong with not filling up your gray tank? It's completely legal to dump soapy water on the ground. Not on CA federal land. We have BLM come to our camps at the dunes to make sure no one is dumping gray water.

RE: Presidents' Day weekend

Weather is going to be horrible for the entire SW region.... Ugh. Another weekend of rain and wind...... All us 2 wheel guys love this weather (we will be in Ocotillo Wells) but I have ridden quads/buggies in Glamis/Gordon's Well after rain, it sucks. Hoping the wind isn't crazy as the storm leaves, forecast says 10-15 which would be nice. I don't like the 25+ with gusts to 50+ where you start planning how to get out of the trailer after it blows over.:E Have fun everyone! LOL. Yeah I know you 2 wheel guys love it..... Wind is supposed to be crazy Friday night and Saturday. Gusts up to 40mph it is calling for. Sustained of 23mph. That is "don't leave the trailer" wind right there. I have sat in it. LOL

RE: Upgrade

Oh man. You won't believe how well that truck will tow your trailer. You will have a big grin on your face. Good job on that purchase. That was the right way to go.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Thanks Hap. I will just replace the choke first. My buddy gave me 3 used carbs to try from. I won't take the carb apart. Too many folks I have heard from out there that say they are not rebuildable. I will report back about the choke replacement. It will be after Prez Day weekend since I'm going to play in a couple of days!!!!!

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Agreed. I will just take the whole choke assembly off and put it on my carb. Oh well. Leaving for the dunes in 4 days so will have to do it after!!!!

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Update. New plugs. Adjusted choke. Tightened same screw as Hap Hazard did. No dice...... Look like I will get a used carb from my buddy and swap out the choke mechanism next and see how that does.

RE: Lost...What do you guys think

LE3105 is way too much hauler for a gas motor truck. I have a LE3505, with 4' added, so LE3905 and my trailer weighs 11,600lbs totally empty. With toys, water etc, I am 17,000lbs. All of my weights are real life CAT scale weights, not brochure weights. The SL series of the Warrior line will be more in line of what you are looking for. You are reading your manual correctly. 3/4 ton trucks don't have as much towing capacity as folks think. Especially when you add a crew cab and diesel into the mix. I know you don't have a diesel, just giving an example. Load range E tires should be used on the truck. IMO. Bigger than stock tires effectively change your gear ratio. So, unless different gears were installed, your tow ratings are actually lower than you think. Manufacture tow ratings are based on lots of variables, frame, brakes, axles, tires (size and load rating), motor HP and Torque etc. Any of these change, changes your tow ratings.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Update to the issue. I adjusted the choke a little and it seemed to help. But, as soon as the genny gets hot, it runs perfect. Hard to duplicate this issue without time. I did pull a plug and they need replaced. I'm sure that isn't helping my issue. Will report back later this week after I put new plugs in it and start it cold.

RE: Extreme megalite

Agree with nayther. It isn't the frame and tongue that is totally the issue, tires, axles, brake size etc. All of that goes into the GVWR calculation. If memory serves, the tires that come on those trailers are like a C rated ST tire? Not enough. I applaud you for trying to do the right thing to be within weight ratings, but trying to do that can get expensive. I.E., bigger trailer could mean bigger truck. :)

RE: onan 5500 running AC

Spark plugs are easy. Have never done valves.

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

Used it. Went to the dunes for 4 days.... LOL. Sorry, had to rub it into those with all the snow.

RE: onan 5500 running AC

I run with everything shut. Cover that comes with the genny. Cover that is on my Toyhauler.

RE: Genny starts, runs rough and then cleans up

Another update. Stopped by storage yesterday and tried it again. Still same issue. I have a buddy that works on these things out of his house. He said to try and loosen up the 3 screws on the choke spring housing thing a ma bob..... and turn the spring to help move the butterfly. I figure worth a shot. If not, he has 10 old carbs from past customers sitting in his garage!!! He will give me another carb and I can take parts off of that!!!! Also, the choke vacuum module is a heck of a lot cheaper than a whole new carb.
