RE: Blow outs and tires

LT tires will for sure help. ST tires are not made to same DOT standards as LT tires. Toy haulers are heavy, can't compare travel trailers to toy haulers. Ozone cracking/dry rot is a legit reason to have an issue. People let their trailers sit for months at a time. Tires need to roll to move the oils around in the rubber. During summer here, if we aren't camping, I make sure I hook up and tow 50 miles 1 time a month. At the same time, run the genny for 30 mins to keep the carb from gumming up.

RE: Just checking in

Nope, not slowing us down. In fact I'm adding another 40 gallon fuel tank to my Warrior this weekend so I can haul more gas for the toys!!!!!!!!

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: Weekend Warrior ft4005

Fuel tank for toys is 40 gallons. Fuel tank for genny is 20 gallons.

RE: Trailer King Tires

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