RE: FS2100 Weekend Warrior Electrical questions

Get 2 6V batteries and you won't have any more issues.

RE: Toy hauler weight questions?

I owned a Weekend Warrior FS3000. 30' box, 34' overall length. I put mine on a CAT scale both loaded and unloaded and I measured my tongue weight with a Sherline Tongue weight scale. So I have real life weights. Trailer with no toys and no water, 2 6V batteries, full propane and normal camping stuff, weight 9000lbs with 1400lbs of tongue weight. Tongue weight on these are much higher than a normal travel trailer. You should be running a true Class V hitch, like a Reese Tow Beast or similar. Trailer will 4 quads, full water and 40gallons of gas in it weighed 12,000lbs with 1400lbs of tongue weight. Trailer with a 2000lb sand rail in it, full water and 40 gallons of gas in it, weighed 13,000lbs with 1500lbs of tongue weight. Tongue weight with full water and no toys in the back was 1700lbs. So, as you can see, putting a gold wing in it is no big deal, I put much more weight in it than a gold wing. Tongue weight on these are very high, so plan accordingly. You definetly need a 2500. Actually you need a 3500 with the tongue weight. With a crew cab, 4WD 2500, you will go over the GVWR of the truck when hooked up due to the high tongue weight. Don't listen to the dude telling you that you can tow this with a SUV..... wow.... that is the tail wagging the dog there.

RE: Used toy hauler shopping. WW vs Ragen vs attitude vs??

That gas motor in your truck won't like a big toy hauler. Gonna drink the gas and the motor will be screaming on hills.

RE: WW FS2600 Actual Dry Weight??

I can tell you what your tongue weight is, but not the overall weight. My buddy owned a 2002 FS2600, Al sides. I have a tongue weight scale and we checked it one day. No water, no toys, full propane and 2 6V batts = 1600lbs. Full water with no toys = 2100lbs. Full water with 3 full size quads in the back = 1700lbs. Those are weights measured directly at the ball mount. I would be willing to bet, empty, that trailer is 8000-8500lbs all day long.

RE: Tires

Thanks for the info. Can't understand why Heartland would put 15s on such a heavy unit. $$$$$$$$

RE: Tires

U won't be able to get away from issues with ANY 15" tires. U gotta step up to 16's to not have issues.

RE: Tire pressure and temps while towing

No but thats not important for the determination of tire pressure advice or how the temperatures in the tires variate . Actually it is. Toyhaulers are heavy and hard on tires. ST tires don't belong on any toyhauler bigger than 24'.

RE: Any Dune trips planned?

Glamis. 27 thru the 1st.

RE: Tire pressure and temps while towing

To get this on topic again, an ST tire will get hotter inside tire temperature when driving for instance 50 to 60 m/h then an LT tire. This is because of more deflection when using pressure determined by the lists tire makers give. Normal temp warm for LT tire when driving that speed will be about 112 degr F. An ST tire will get a warmer inside tire temp when driving that speed because of the more deflection . This brings an ST tire closer to the border where damage begins and thats the reason why ST tires give more blow outs . Same we had in Europe with Travel trailers, wich had OEM tires Normal car tires ( P-tire B-load ) and rule was 10% extra maximum load when using 10% above maxloadpressure of 36 psi so about 40 psi. Maximum allowed speed then was 100km/62m/h. To law in the Netherlands and many European country's max speed was 80 km/50m/h later highened to 90km/55m/h only on the highway. Because of overloading,because of more luxuary build in , this gave often blowing tires . Many cheap tires got a bad name by that affaire,thoug the real cource was the wrong use of the tires, so overloading and higher speed on the french roads. Do you even know what a toyhauler is?????

RE: In search of my first fifth-wheel toy hauler.....

Everything your saying makes sense. Thanks for your reply. I've heard that they pin weight tends to not go up much on toy haulers because a decent amount of the weight your adding is at the rear of the trailer. Is there any truth to this? Not at all. My trailer has 2670lbs of pin weight totally empty. I put 150 gallons of water in it, which are in front of my front axle (pin weight goes up) I then put my 2800lb sand rail in the trailer, majority of which is behind the rear axle, my pin weight goes up to 3400lbs. This is why I have a dually. Don't have to worry about this stuff.

RE: Tire pressure and temps while towing

My conclusion is the lower speed that gives all tires more reserve before the tire damages , and thats almost always te case for LT tires, a speed of maximum 70m/h. An ST tire is not that different then a LT but more often damage because of more deflection because of more load for the same pressure . If you would give a LT tire the same pressure for the load as a ST of same sises and loadkind, it would also damage more often. Wow, this is such wrong information I don't even know where to start.

RE: Anything bigger than a Smart car?

lincster, this was one of the great things about Weekend Warrior, they really built Toy Haulers for the various segments of the market. They listened to their buyers and built what they wanted. As I recall they often did extras to beef up the units for specific purposes. I think the downfall of the market place now is that they are all mass produced units. Totally agree.

RE: Tire pressure and temps while towing

I range anywhere between 95-102F towing at 75mph. I have Michelin XPS Ribs on my trailer.

RE: Anything bigger than a Smart car?

HUH? A smart car? My sandrail is longer, taller and heavier than any smart car. Fits in my trailer nooooo problem. I even put 2 quads in there with it. The problem with newer haulers is the garage.... they don't hold squat. I bought my Warrior to actually use and to haul toys, lots of them. Even if I had quads, I would need to haul 4 of them for my whole family.

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.
