RE: Crummy headlights - Can't see, need upgrade

I used this one in my old Dodge and Mustang. With the truck I had to extend the passengers side by 18" or so but nothing but some wire and soldering can't fix. Works perfect and lights are MUCH brighter. Nice, thanks. Doubt I could buy the parts and pieces for 19 bucks. No point in making my own for that price. Nope and don't forget the time to solder it all together and shrink wrap.

RE: Crummy headlights - Can't see, need upgrade

A simple pre built plug and play Dual Relay Harness will improve them 50%. Your likely not getting full voltage to the bulbs if running stock wiring.

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

The drop in quality is one of the reasons we sold our new trailer and replaced it with a 2005 model. It just felt cheap inside and honestly everytime we used it something needed fixing. Short of saying buying a new Genesis which was a little out of our price range as a cash only buyers we really wanted something older, heavier duty and built better when times were good.

RE: Where to put generator in 21' travel trailer

Have a fabricator make a custom mount to put it on the tongue above the batteries and propane tanks. You want more tongue weight for safety reasons. Also if its a propane fuel generator you could leave it permanently connected to the tanks and never have to deal with gas.

RE: UPDATED Coast on the uphills accelerate on the downhills

Looks like you got it sorted out Opnspaces. I am San Diego local too and have gone though Alpine out to the desert many times. Not sure if I've taken our current setup on S2 yet. 9/10 I go up over Palomar Moutain as I am north county but if we are going to Glamis or Superstition/Plaster area I'll take I8 out.

RE: Air Shocks

The shock mounts are not meant to support weight. Air shocks would be a mistake. I would get a WDH set up properly, heavy duty coils and if needed air bags to provide just a bit more leveling.

RE: LED Interior Bulbs

I got some from Amazon in packs of 20. I needed 27 so have some extras for some burn out. So far none have.

RE: wheel balancers

I have them on my daily driver which is a old Dodge truck. Other than when the windows are down and hearing a slight hiss sound as the medial spins up you don't know they are there. Ride is incredibly smooth at all speeds. Have thought of getting some for the trailer.

RE: Broken cargo door key

there is a # on the key. any locksmith, the camp or a neighbor wil have one. Ch 545,751 223 will open most baggage doors. yup, the infamous CH751 key. works on many if not the majority of pass through doors, garden tractors, sprinkler locks, and the list goes on..... You can add the storage locker on a 2020 Manitou Off Road Telescopic Forklift to that list. OP look on the lock it self above and below where the key goes in the slot. There may be a number printed there. That is the key number.

RE: Looking for a quality Toy hauler but discouraged.

I have crunched the numbers on just about every Toy Hauler out there and unless you’re stepping up to an ATC or Sundowner the rest suck for GVWR. Might not be a problem if all you’re hauling is bicycles and kayaks. I have decided for me anyway the best approach is an older Carson Fun Runner in the 25’ range. That gives you a front bedroom and decent garage area. These can be bought for $7K-$15K in the 20 to 26 foot range around year models 2005 to 2012. Lot of guys use then in the desert to haul sand rails. I would buy something like this and remodel the inside and use it until I was done with it than dispose of it for whatever the market would bare. I’m not dumping $50K into something to just camp in. The Carson’s Fun Runners seem to be mostly located on the west coast so some travel to fine one will be required. Dennis This is exactly what we did. Initially we bought a brand new 2015 Sand Sport 18' and enjoyed it for 4 years but it just felt cheap and I was always working on it. Blocks under the shower floor, cheap rv electrical outlets pulling out of walls, no strut rods on the Up opening cabinets, horribly designed shower where the walls do not over lap the pan requiring caulking replacement or maintenance every time you used it. The list goes on and on. We ended up selling it and buying a 2005 Forest River Sierra 30'Toy Hauler. While it too requires maintenance it is much better built and feels like it will actually last. I dont mind working on this one or the one we had before it just now it doesn't feel like we wasted a bunch of money. It also matches my truck better because its 28 years old too ;)

RE: Thor or Forest River - Warranty and reputation

What's sad is that Forest River used to be quality 20 years ago. Not so much anymore. We sold our 2016 and bought a 2005 FR trailer. Much better build construction.

RE: Time to replace A/C

I put a Atwood Air Command on our trailer. Thermostat is built in and you have a remote control to adjust if you can not reach the control panel on the AC itself. Only wiring needed was the Pos,Neg and Ground.

RE: I Am severely dissapointed.

S I'm at a loss Buying a brand new RV should not have felt this shitty. You didn't do much research did you?

RE: On the road breakdown stories..

Leaving Mesa Arizona heading East one morning my oil pressure gauge started flickering and dropped. The engine sounded just as it always does and the oil light never came on so didn't pull over immediately. Drove about 300 miles and there was a Napa next to where I was getting diesel so picked up a new sending unit. When I went to put it on I found the one on the truck was just loose, changed it anyways.

RE: 1/2 ton truck towing question

You don't need a 10,000 pound toy hauler for a golf cart. The 18' Sand Sport we just moved out of would of done it at less than 4,000 empty.

RE: filling fresh water tank

The overflow will come pouring out of a vent somewhere on the trailer.
