RE: Flat Towing 2012 GMC Acadia

The owners manual is your go to source for accurate information. A quick review of the 2012 Dinghy Towing guides says it should be flat towable. But to be aware of your hitch ratings as the Acadia comes in close to 5,000#

RE: car towing

very strange. perhaps people towed vehicles 4 down that remco said was OK, but the car mfr. didn't and too many law suits developed????????? bumpy Doubtful, more likely it's for the exact reason that Remco stayed, "...low demand products..." How many people really want to go through the hassle of disconnecting a drive shaft these days? I think they just made a business decision to focus on other areas of their business.

RE: Not Utilizing RV Parks or Boondocking

There is a time and a place for all of them. We haven't WallyDocked in years, often stay in RV resorts, State parks, or USFS sites, though I avoid "RV Parks" with a lot of full time sites at last the ones that look like dives. Right now I'm sitting in a hotel room over looking the Ocean in Canon Beach Oregon while our RV is at home. It was a quick two night get away and it was faster for us to not pack up, unwinterize, drive, etc. Plus I'm over looking the ocean, and there are very few ocean front RV sites. I'm not beholden to anyone's rule I do what I want to do. This weekend it was a hotel.

RE: Website Q - SSL certificate?

Google has adjusted its ranking for searches based on sites with or without SSL. While I agree with your thoughts. If you are hosting it for your own personal use, don't bother - at least I don't. Our business website wasn't SSL until recently as we hand off our sales to another site that did have SSL, but we were advised to make the change. Most hosts will do it for free depending on the level of service you are paying for.

RE: Toy Hauler legend has passed

Sad to see his passing, like him or not he WAS Mr. Toy Hauler and I think took the whole industry to a new level with them. Bad timing with the issues he had with the company and the recession, but a lot of people got burnt too. I just checked and see that Omega RV appears to have closed up shop, and post on a WW page from 2018 had a guy trying to get some support for his new WW. Happy Trails Mark.

RE: Best RV repair company, roof replacement Oregon

I had really good service from Drakes RV Services in Pendleton Oregon. Probably to far for you to go, but it's a small shop all the guys working thee had worked for Keystone, Fleetwood and Northwood. Shop rates were very reasonable adn they took care of me on a Friday night of Memorial weekend.

RE: Fort Wilderness, Busy as usual..

With the changes to opening up in Florida Disney is moving towards 50% capacity. But the reason RV sales have been so strong during Covid-19 will make FW popular even in the midst of all of this, the safety of your own RV, cooking your own food, etc. If I lived close enough I'd be all over going to the Fort.

RE: Does anyone here remember the Toy Hauler Rallies?

Always wanted to go, just a bit far of a haul from Eastern WA!

RE: Toy Hauler Toy Selection

Now if they made a higher ground clearance version, that would be near ideal. There are ways to increase it, quick search for "Can-Am Spyder increase ground clearance" will lead you to those. Easy to get a couple inches, not sure about much more.

RE: Toy Hauler Toy Selection

Along the Oregon Coast this summer I saw one couple with a Polaris Slingshot, though they had theirs on a trailer behind a motorhome. Another couple with a Toy Hauler had a Can-Am Spyder. Both are 3 wheel vehicles, might be something to check out.

RE: Best/worst reviews no help

Over the years the Desert Fox line up seems to have held up pretty well from my friends with them. They are built in the Northwest, so I'm not sure about availability in your neck of the woods.

RE: Tank heaters

If they have actual heading pads I'd think you'd have a switch some where. Mostly RVs that have enclosed underbellies allow some of the heat from the heat ducts to heat the space. Was it listed on the spec sheet when you bought it?

RE: newbie

Be sure to check the roof. Seen a lot of them in Oregon/Washington, just recall one family at the ATV campground complained about leaks - could be a 1 time issue, but just an FYI>

RE: Looking for a quality Toy hauler but discouraged.

Lot of owners just don't maintain their stuff like they should. I'd keep looking, but the challenge your facing right now is that even used RVs seem to have had their prices go up. At least you caught the rot before you bought it. Keep searching.

Remco to discontinue it's vehicle towing kits

This announcement was shared in another thread, but I wanted to share it for everyone on this forum. Remco Towing Store Dear Remco Industries Towing Customer: After careful consideration, Remco Industries has decided to discontinue the manufacture and sales of its vehicle towing kits (remcotowing.com), as of October 1, 2020. The standard warranty terms will be honored for all units shipped prior to October 1, 2020. Orders in place and active prior to the announcement date will be honored according to the terms of that order, regarding product availability, warranty or support terms. The discontinuance of this product line is in keeping with our practice of rationalizing low demand products and replacing them with new products with improved design and functionality. We appreciate and value your partnership. While we regret any inconvenience this announcement may cause, we are pleased to announce that we continue to research and develop new and alternate products that provide complimentary additions to our current product offering. We sincerely appreciate the confidence and loyalty you have shown us over the years, and we look forward to working together in the future. Please feel free to contact your Remco Industries sales representative if you have additional questions. Best regards, Remco Industries

RE: How much cc to leave for passengers and gear?

You will find that adding more to the hauler really doesn't reduce the pin weight as much (if any) as you might expect. I'd suggest taking your setup across a set of scales. The best network of scales is to find the nearest CAT Scale and see for yourself. Taking it loaded and unloaded can be eye opening.

RE: Manuals

Tinbangertom welcome to the group. Though I saw your other post about having a new 2020 Momentum 29G, it’s helpful to add your RV to your signature so when posting a question readers have some idea of what type of rig you have, or include it in your post. To add it to your signature, click the “My Forums” link in the upper right corner, then on “My Preferences” As to your question, if you can share a model # and exact name of the system that might help. But if it’s a brand new unit contact your sales person they should be able to get your the operators manual.

RE: Genesis Supreme Vortex 28IKS Switch???

Might want to move this to the Toy Hauler group. But I wonder if it's for your rear ramp lights or awning light?
