RE: Generators for 5er

Prior to our toy hauler we had a regular 5er and a Yamaha 3000 in the bed of the truck. We ran generator in the bed of the truck, but would unhook from camper when doing this. It worked well, but required having portable gas cans. Toy hauler has 5500 Onan. We have 60 gallons of onboard fuel which is great. No unhooking, no cords, no gas cans. No overload worries. It does drink more fuel. You might search for a diesel generator you could mount in truck bed and feed off the truck.

RE: 5th wheel Hitch recommendations

I have a Ram 2500 short bed with pucks. First hitch was a Curt 20K from ETrailer. It was not a slider. Had slider in previous GMC short bed and never slid it. Well I hit the cab. Appears the RAM bed is a bit shorter (at least from the axle to back of cab. There was no problem with Curt hitch, just didn't slide. Next, purchased a Demco auto-slider from Etrailer. No worries now.

RE: cottonwood pass, colo

Not sure how to answer, but it's a 2 lane pass. My last trip was several years ago in a 5er. Nothing to pucker up about, but I was very respectful of the decent and gearing down. You can take Hw 50 to 135 and avoid the pass if you're worried.

RE: Fl to Mo

You can cross the Mississippi River north of Memphis at Curuthersville, MO, then pick up I-57 N to Sikeston, MO and take Hwy 60 across Southern MO to Springfield. Hwy 60 is a good road. Not sure that's any better than the previously mentioned Arkansas route.

RE: Updated Toy Hauler

Very nice. And not too long (by toyhauler standards)! Looks like you have 60 gallons of fuel. We have that and it's really nice when you want to be off the grid in warm temps.

RE: Need Generator Help!

Just did mine and it is slow. Got about 1 1/2 quarts in, then ran it a few minutes and it took the remainder. On another note, how do you get to the spark plug near the cover on the right. It's really tight. Do they make a special plug wrench?

RE: Sway Question

Spend money for a good set up. Plenty of options. If you want the best look at Hensley or Pro-Pride. They work. Are the worth the money? To me yes. Other issues besides sway are the push and pull you get from passing vehicles.

RE: Rear Deck System Worth It?

We don't have the patio option as we bought used. We often keep the rear ramp down and close the screen. When we leave or weather changes we can close the ramp quickly. If buying new, I'd get the option.

RE: Camping options for Moab, Utah Area

We stayed at Arches twice. Last time they had onsite ATV/Razor rentals if you want to explore some of the trails.

RE: 22 to 24 foot garage?

Might check out Cimmaron trailers. Transwest is selling them with Outlaw living conversions. Will be pricey. Probably better quality than standard RV manufacturers.

RE: generator maintenance?

I'd change the oil, spark plug and air filter. It it runs smooth I wouldn't worry about varnish. Add fuel treatment if concerned.

RE: Generator use during travel

Yes I have mounted generator on a rear rack. Ram 30 amp cord to it. Ran fine driving down the road. No issues. I was running A/C and frig on electric. BUT, the hitch did fail. It cracked the welds. I caught it before loosing it, but that was luck. I had a Yamaha 3000 generator. I have run same genny in truck bed with no issues.

RE: Fifth Wheels with an onaboard Onan

Like others have said, it'll be propane, not gas like your Raptor.
