RE: Rage’n FS2600

George if you look around the edges or the flange can you find any company name or parts number on the skylight?

RE: Financing for used toy hauler.

Keep in mind the kick back that dealers get for financing. I've heard that some push back very hard if you get your own financing, or the deal you had is based on their financing. With that kick back use that to negotiate.

RE: retained fumes in garage?

If your toys leak and you are not proactive about it you may have issues. Clean up quickly or put something down and you would be fine. We always shut the fuel off in our toys. I had to flip one of our ATVs to stand up so I drained the fuel and ran until dry. What little fuel leaked was quickly cleaned up with full strength Simple Green. During the loading and shortly after we ran the garage fan, again never had any issues.

RE: Financing for used toy hauler.

jmbstudios, you can google RV financing for some suggestions, as already suggested check with your local Credit Union first. I know Bank of the West used to be a big RV lender, but I'm not sure if they are still or not.

RE: Is this RV to long in the back to launch 24’ boat.

It will really depend on the lake levels, the ramp angle and the tongue on the boat trailer. Your generator does appear to be at the back and that far back the risk of submersion is something to take serious consideration. The other challenge is retrieval, as you know. From what I see, it's going to be very risky and I'm not sure I'd do it. I launch with our Winnebago and I've seen a lot of different setups over the years try, and some fail to launch. One time we were camping and guy had a very nice Diesel pusher and nice boat, he never launched the boat himself. In the bay of his rig he had maybe a dozen, or more, cases of beer. He'd go find a guy with a pick up he said and make a deal. His boat never spent the night in the water. Smart man if you ask me. One option, I wouldn't do it to tow with it, but for launching might be to get a tow bar extension to put on/off. https://www.etrailer.com/static/images/pics/c/4/c45048_10_1000.jpg width=480

RE: Yipping little dogs!! Ugh!!

I always believe in addressing the problem first hand, first. If that fails, and honestly it normally does, I will talk with the campground owner and let them know the situation, how I tried to address it and a few times I've used my phone to record the non-stop yapping. Yes the owners will probably give you the evil eye after they get talked to, but you did give them a try. We had a Golden "retriever" that was a great dog, except we could not get her to stop barking. Classes, fail. Anti-barking devices, fail. We couldn't take her camping. That was sad, but the only thing we could do.

RE: fridge code. refrigerator

Since you are plugged in and still having the problem it sounds like your converter/charger is either not working. Do check your batteries first, but my gut says a new converter/charger is in your future. Your situation sounds exactly like mine when mine failed. When mine failed a few years ago I took the opportunity to upgrade it one from Progressive Dynamics. Worth checking into if yours has failed.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

Do check out the tongue weight of the trailer that gkainz posted, some previous ones had really high tongue weights. I was shocked when past members shared their experience with other brands. The weight shown is the dry ship weight.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

I agree with Dirtclods. I bought a new 23' Trailer went to hook up to our Chevy TrailBlazer, within all the specs, etc. But looking at it and towing home I knew right away I didn't like the feeling. Though my F150 wasn't as comfortable for the boys in the back, I felt a lot safer.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

Honda says it's 63” wide, which seems narrow. I’m not sure what tires come with it the RZRs run 72” so if you go aftermarket make sure you will have enough clearance front/sides. Keep in mind that the trailer has a total weight rating, so make sure the amount of the SxS, water, waste water, food, clothes etc. are inline. Dune Sport over the years seems to be a mixed bag. Definitely not high end, but budget conscious trailers.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

At first glace I don't think it's a great idea with your setup, my gut says you're going to be better off getting a pick up. My concern is how much weight you will have behind you, and at that point what's in control you SUV or the trailer? While the GC has a good engine the wheelbase is still only around 114" Which SxS do you have? Dimensions matter as does the weight. Which GC do you have?

RE: Does Your State Require a SBS

D.E.Bishop a few years ago I came across a site that did a pretty good job listing each States laws, sadly I can't find that list right now. There have been past similar discussions here regarding the true legal requirement of brakes or no-brakes with very little "facts" one way or the other. While a loose dinghy does happen, its fairly rare it seems (thankfully). Often there is an argument about whether the dingy is a trailer or not since many laws seem more specific to an actual travel trailers, fifth wheels, etc. I did come across the a Federal regulation that specified a trailer; Federal Regulations Title 49 (49CFR571.4) of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, “Trailer means a motor vehicle with or without motive power, designed for carrying persons or property and for being drawn by another motor vehicle." So with that and a State regulation regarding braking for trailers would appear (my take) to point to a requirement for braking if the State calls it out. Washington State RCWs Braking equipment required This link may get you closer to actually finding the laws State by State, RVIA Break Requirements

RE: Class c overhead marker lights/lens

Any Winnebago dealer can get them for you. If you don't know a Winnebago dealer near you, go to WinnebagoInd.com to look up. The Sunseeker isn't a Winnebago product, its a Forest River product.

RE: Toad on a Dolly

bsheet2 It sounds like you've made your mind up since you already ordered your dolly. I'm not sure exactly why you want to wire up your vehicle instead of using the dolly lights. IMHO the easiest if you really want lights on the back of your vehicle is to check out the magnetic lights you can buy at Harbor Freight. If not then you will need to buy and install some wiring kits or have them installed for you. eTrailer.com is a good place to get the parts you need.
