I saw that ad too. Do some price comparisons on your unit and other Silverbacks and price accordingly. Then ad your truck as something that can go with for an extra cost. The high dollar for a Silverback will scare most away.

RE: Landing gear failure and zero gravity problems

I would certainly be in the dealers face to get something done about this long before 63 days have gone by. Better find someone high up in the dealership and get their phone number and call every day to something happens. I keep the dealer owners cell phone number as well as his wife's number handy! Works pretty good!

RE: Air-conditioning

If you are thinking about trading go try some of the new ones with the A/C on. The difference in noise between our new Cedar Creek and our 2011 Big Country is amazing..No longer do we have to turn the Television way up whenever the air comes on. Never had any idea there could be this much difference.. B.O. X2 Went from a 2013 Big Country to our new Venom and the difference is amazing. Old ones were Norcold and new camper has Coleman ac's that are off ducted to the sides of the ceiling so the noise is cut way down. And the air flow is much better too. I can actually feel a breeze when they are on.

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Buffalo Campground in North Dakota. Very Private. $6 per night! (no hookups, showers were locked). Plans only had us here for one night. http://i.imgur.com/JcWG19ml.jpg Rafter J Bar in the Black Hills. Lots of space, very pricey, wifi never worked for a second. http://i.imgur.com/loPTjtUl.jpg I think I camped right across the path from your Rafter J spot this summer. The scenery looks familiar. That or you were up on the island.

RE: LCI Remote System + Auto Level

I figure I'm probably doing something wrong on mine. I tried a couple of times and nothing. Suppose I fat fingered it and hit something I shouldn't seems to me it wanted to raise the front without releasing pressure off the rear jacks. That idea didn't sit well with me.

RE: Towing over trucks max tow

I guess for me it's always on my mind as to how much we have in the camper and in the truck. The max weight limit is totally loaded and I can guarantee I'll never be fully loaded. Never haul full tanks or even half full tanks for that matter. We have empty cupboards all over the place. Eat off of paper plates instead of glass. In fact I don't think we have any glass kitchen ware in the camper. Don't over pack groceries either. I like to support the local community wherever we are going rather than pack for three meals a day for however long were gone. Just the two of us and our dogs. Sure we can haul a toy now and it's either a kayak or a ranger which rings in at around 1250 if that. Just cause there's space to store stuff doesn't mean we have to carry it along and then not use it!

RE: Tire Issue

Simpletire.com sells Sailun tires reasonably. I think the last two I got were around 126 a piece plus some shipping.

RE: Venom

Search for LCI onecontrol. I came up with one app that is just instructions on how to use it and then the other is the control app.

RE: Venom

Have you downloaded the app to you phone yet? Does make a few things a bit more easy but I would still like some switches for lights.

RE: New guy need help picking a TH

The Venom 4114 is 13' 7" garage equipped. I think my pin is 3110 lbs. I have the same track as you and haven't noticed any real issues yet. Pulls great. Do have some warranty issues to get taken care of but they all can't be perfect I guess.

RE: Fridge WOES......Again

If there is a fan it should be attached to a thermostat on the cooling fins directing the fan to come on at 130 degrees or at least around there. If it's not then the heat can't rise and escape so the freezer will work but not the fridge. Thermistor should read between 8-10000 ohms after about ten minutes in the ice. To make sure the board works just unplug the the thermistor from the circuit board and over about a day at most the fridge should become a freezer. That will prove the circuit board is functioning. Just went through this on my parents fridge last month. These instruction were in the dometic book and online for troubleshooting. There are checks for the heating elements but I never got that far. Replaced the fan with two, (the factory bracket will accommodate two in my parents) and works really good now. Oh and double check the door gaskets too. Unbelievable how much cold air you lose when the door opens.

RE: Fridge WOES......Again

Does it have assist fan or fans in the back outside of the fridge to move air? If they burn out it can breathe and while freezer will be cold the fridge will not. Just a thought.

RE: Venom

I agree with the switches. That's a lot to go through just to turn on a light or water heater. We wanted a 3911 but to order one would put us into late sept and then the season is all but over for us so... We took the owners demo at the dealership. I've been making note of the things that need attention and have been trying to do some of the stuff myself. I hate taking these things back.

RE: Which 5er would you suggest?

I just moved to a toy hauler from a 38 ft. Big Country and I think the triples make for a better ride. Really, if your already spending the money on a toy hauler what's a little more for a couple more tires when it comes time to replace. I just bought some g rated tires online for under 130 a piece. Gonna try to get them thrown on this week.

RE: Upgraded to sailun s637 Tires, huge difference from towmaxes

I've got six Sailuns sitting out in my shop waiting to be put on my new toy hauler. Unfortunately I just burnt the heck out of my hand today and I think they may have to wait a while.

RE: IRS after me ...... again

I have been getting that IRS call about once a month . If things work out maybe I can pay them off , because today my wife was left a message that said that there were two steel boxes of U.S. currency being held in the Customs office at " the Texas Port Of Entry " in the USA .All we must do to receive these steel boxes of currency is forward $850 to cover freight to Florida . Maybe one of you guys in Tejas can run over there and pick it up for me ? Ask if you could just go pick it up as you are planning a trip the Texas. My dw is in IT Security and she always a cute way of dealing with them. Most don't know what to say when threatened with logic and realistic facts. They get quiet and soon go away. Microsoft people called once over Christmas and she asked which computer as we have several. Then went on to say they are all MAC's so how does this change things. Can almost hear the head scratching.

RE: Venom

It appears we are going to find out. Settled on the 4114tk that the owner of the dealership used as a demo a coulee of times. We went through it a week ago when we were out in South Dakota and it seemed nice. There are a few changes I would like though. Don't know why KZ put the sewer dump handles outside under the frame. I'll have to move them. And the sewer is way under the slide when extended. It can be cut and moved forward. Apparently this is the only one in the country. A dealer lists one in AZ. but they have no pics either.
mudmaker 07/30/16 11:51am Toy Haulers

Anyone have any experience with these? Have been researching toy haulers my local dealer is selling these now. KZ rep even took some advice rep the dealer and made a new model with their ideas in mind. 4114. Looking hard at these and I see a few things I would change but am willing to consider others though. Just would like an independent opinion on the Venom line from someone who may have real experience. Thanks

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

I think it made a decent amount of improved air flow this morning. Easy fix. I also put some tape I the end vents to help divert airflow down the vents. And I cut the flow in the bathroom by half. It's always way cold in there anyway.

RE: Improving Air Flow in Roof A/C vents.

Hey I discovered mine has the same leaky areas. Guess I'll do a little taping in the morning.
