RE: WW toy hauler electrical

I found out what the problem was, they had a 50 amp plug but they use a household current 14/2 to run it so it was basically 30 amp To a 50 amp outlet and it was straining everything and wire was getting hot started to melt my plug So I went down and got a new plug for my RV and some 6 gauge wire And re-wired it myself properly, I normally don’t like to mess with wiring but being a general contractor I do it when I really have to but since I moved I didn’t have a electrician that I normally use but at least I know it’s done correctly this time. Guess I got lucky that it didn’t burn my RV up but now everything is working again properly. Are you saying this was on the wiring in the trailer? The large 50 Amp plug that can be used to plug into house voltage?

RE: WW toy hauler electrical

AC doesn't come on, that sounds like a breaker. You have breakers inside the trailer and breakers on the genny itself.

RE: WW toy hauler electrical

You know it could be because of the outlet outside the door because that one is not working also and I did have the cover open with something plugged into it when it rained. So that’s probably the culprit so I will blow it out with my air compressor when I get home and see if that fixes the issue. I bet that is it. Good luck. My compressor didn't dry it enough, plus I was impatient. So I took it apart and bypassed it completely.

RE: WW toy hauler electrical

Couple of years ago, at the dunes, major rain storm came in from the west. Door side of the trailer was facing west. Middle of the night, GFI tripped and I couldn't get it to reset so genny wasn't charging batteries. In the morning, traced it down to the outlet next to the door had gotten water in it and caused the trip. Got it all dry and back together, everything worked fine after that. Just my experience.

RE: Towing a 40’ weekend warrior 4005 flt.

To the OP. Will a "newer" 3/4 ton truck tow that trailer? Yep. Will a "newer" 3/4 ton truck be within the tow ratings towing that trailer? Nope. Pin weight on that trailer will be pushing 4000-4500lbs with full water in the trailer. If tow ratings/weight matter, you have to put the truck on a CAT scale and do the math from there. I own a 2006 Weekend Warrior, 42' with no slides. Empty trailer is 11,800lbs with 2700lbs of pin weight. Fully loaded, with 160 gallons of water, sand rail etc, I am at 17,400lbs with 3460lbs of pin weight. I have put my entire set up on a CAT scale in all configurations. Truck only. Truck with empty trailer. Truck with fully loaded trailer. The trailer you are asking about will have higher weights than mine in all aspects due to the slides.

RE: Trailer King Tires

If you want to really put it out of your mind, go to LT tires.

RE: Weekend Warrior ft4005

Freshwater tank should be cleaned with bleach once a year. Fill up with water, add a bunch of bleach, run through all faucets, let sit for 24 hours, drain and refill to flush out. Black and Grey tanks, just dump normally. You can add bags of ice to the black before you go out and tow, that helps sometimes. If you want the genny to run well, run it at least 1 time per month for at least 30 mins. You can put any wheel you want on the trailer that will fit. Trailer wheels have a 0 offset. This is for the bearings and keeping the load minimal. If you google Weekend Warrior parts, there is a website that sells alot of Warrior parts.

RE: Trailer Springs in Mexicali, Mexico??

Is there a Napa around? Buddy found a spring there while he was on the road.

RE: Wrangler YJ in 12 foot garage?

My sandrail is 3000lbs and I have no issues in my Weekend Warrior. With my wheel base, I only have 1 set of axles on the ramp at a time. I used to haul my rail and 2 quads at the same time, no issue with weight. If you end up with a 5th wheel, handling won't be affected by the weight. I don't have any issues even in side winds of 20-30mph.

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

That's a small hauler. I think just by available space, the bike will be over the axles. With that dovetail, I wouldn't put the bike close to the ramp. Just my opinion on how I would load it.

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

Pin weight, or tongue weight, won't change that much with just a motorcycle, independent of placement. I've done all of the weight measurements and vehicle placement. The biggest item to change pin/tongue weight is water or no water. My sand rail is 3000lbs and the pin weight in my 5er is still 3600lbs with the motor/trans hanging 5' behind the rear axle. My water tanks are 80% in front of my front axle and I always tow with full water.

RE: Can I safely tow a Fuel 362 with 2020 2500HD 6.6

Only way to know is take your truck to a scale and weigh it, then do the math. Say truck weighs 8000lbs. GCWR of truck is 20000. 20000-8000=12000lbs. This is the total amount of weight you can tow and stay within the trucks GCWR. GVWR of truck is 9000. 9000-8000=1000lbs. This is the total amount of weight the truck can carry, I.E. passengers, pin weight etc. I don't know your weights or your ratings so you have to plug in your own numbers. If you don't care about tow ratings, that truck will 100% tow that trailer. I moved up to a F350 Dually back in 2006 to avoid any of these issues. I have been able to hook up to any 5th wheel toy hauler I have wanted to since then and not worry.
