RE: Fresh water tank oveflow lines will not stop leaking

Dripping finally stopped after 1.5 days. I believe I overfilled tanks (filled until water dripped from overflow hoses). I believe once several gallons were used (to below overflow hoses), siphoning/dripping stopped

RE: Fresh water tank oveflow lines will not stop leaking

Not hooked up to city water....... No access to top of tank..... I’m assuming the flat type of hoses coming from top of tanks are oveflow hoses I’m Puzzled???.....

RE: Fresh water tank oveflow lines will not stop leaking

If siphoning, that woulsd indicate overflow line goes to bottom of tank (inside tank)....???

Fresh water tank oveflow lines will not stop leaking

First time i used this new to me TH. 2009 Tahoe (MVP) 284 SA. Filled 100 gal freshwater tanks ( 2 serparate 50 gal tanks that fill through one fill location. I filled tanks until water came out overfllow lines. Each tank has one line. These overflow lines are flat flimsy rubber lines, not round plastic / rubber lines. They appear to be mounted at top of tank and simply drape over and hang down to bottom of tank. Since I left house and while camping, one of these overflow hoses continues to drip water. It will not stop. I thought after a few gallons were used it woiuld stop leaking has not. After 24 hours, my water tanks and at 1/3 full with not too much use. I’m losing water as I camp!!! Why is this happening? Any clues, insight, advice on what to check and how to check? Thanks!

RE: weight distributing

I would consider the Blue Ox with 2000# bars. I bet your TW will heavier than you are currently thinking. I have one and it is great!

RE: weight distributing

If u really want to go by the numbers, the stock receiver on that truck is not rated high enough. I had to buy a real class V hitch for my F350. X2....I went with the Curt XD on my 2003 F-350

RE: Weight of toy hauler

To give you a point of reference...... My truck is an older 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty with V10 gas. Below are my truck's specs. I tow a 28' Tahoe that's about 8000# dry and about 10,000# loaded. It does have a GVWR of 13000# but I will never get to that weight as I will never carry more than 2000# of stuff. TW is 1500# with full water tanks (100ga). I also do not carry off road toys.....just bicycles, raft, outboard engine, fishing gear, ice chests, camping gear, etc. I am within specs for towing safely. Payload: 2980# Front GAWR: 4250# Rear GAWR: 6830# GCVWR: 20,000#

RE: Service Manual Needed - Dometic DM2852

There is NOT a 'service manual' for the DM models Some Owners manuals, some Installation Manuals, some install/owners etc DM Models RM Models are very similar....just make sure you use the DM wiring schematics Thanks Biscuit..... Do you know why is there no service manual for the DM2852? Do you know the differences between them (DM and RM)? If no service manual for DM2852, where would one get wiring diagram if not from the proper service manual? Thanks!

Google is your friend. Thank you for the link, but that link is for an RM2852; I need one for a DM2852

RE: Trailer Electric Brakes shudder at low speed....Why?

I guess I will remove drums and inspect. I will service as needed. I have read about chamfering leading edge of shoes, and will sand them down these leading edges. I also know about arcing shoes to drums but I believe that may be a practice rarely employed anywhere/anymore. When the time comes to replace shoes, I will search for someone (hopefully near me) that will turn drums and arc shoes accordingly.

RE: Air bags and shocks to smooth out ride

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go with a set of 4 Bilsteins 4600. I'll see how she rides after the new shocks are installed.

Air bags and shocks to smooth out ride

Just picked up a 2009 Thor (MVP) Tahoe 284SA. GVWR is 13K.....see pic below Starting off with maintenance and necessities first: Purchased a new Blue Ox BXW2000 hitch. Tongue weight is approx. 1600#. Set up was straight forward and all sits very close to level. Towed 10 miles at 55mph and all feels solid and no sway. Freeway and wind will later determine how it feels under adverse conditions. Purchased new Good Year Endurance tires ....285/80R/ 16E Next few weeks....I will have roof professionally resealed with Dicor self leveling sealant (all protrusions) and a complete roof coating will be applied (Dicor). Normally I would do this maintenance myself....but older age and heights....drove me to decide on having it done. Questions: 1. Can air bags be added to smooth out bouncy ride? If so, any brands recommended? 2. Shocks on my truck are OEM Motorcraft. My truck has 66K original miles. I prefer a smooth factory ride and do not go off road much unless I am traveling to a camping spot. What shocks are recommended for a smooth factory ride yet capable of the heavier tongue weight of this toyhauler (1600#)? I read the Bilsteins 4600 are stiff. Thanks!

RE: Fresh water tanks....Can they be Black in Color?

Thanks for the replies. I'll be doing the clorox disenfecting procedures in the next few weeks. I figured the extra fresh water was for gray dumping out in desert (minus the food particles!).

RE: Removal of 10 year old trailer ugly decal pictures

Although all the methods mentioned above have some degree of success, I used a plastic razor blade and a product called "Rapid Remover" on the sides of my aluminum boat. The decals on my boat were baked on after 13 years. RR worked like no other.

Fresh water tanks....Can they be Black in Color?

My new to me Toyhauler (see sig) has four plastic tanks as follows: 1 - Black tank (40gal) 1 - Gray tank (35 gal) 2 - Fresh water tanks that are connected by a flexible piece of hose. These tanks are supposed to be 60 gals each. NOTE: ALL tanks above are black in color (black plastic). Question: Aren't fresh water tanks supposed to be white/milky white/white translucent in color? Never paid much attention to the color of my other RVs fresh water tanks. Thanks

Trailer Electric Brakes shudder at low speed....Why?

My new to me Toyhauler has brakes that bite hard and shudder when stopping at speeds of less than 5mph (when coming to a stop). What is the usual culprit for this issue? Is this a common issue for older brakes? The trailer sat for the last two years. Brakes are Dexter and are on 6000# Dexter axles (8 lug). I'm assuming all parts are original since original owner said he never serviced brakes over the years as they always worked fine. Thanks

RE: Tongue Jack Block - Need one light, strong, and tall

Not quite 10", but there's this Valterra one. If going tall, the wider you can make the base, the more stable it will be. I don't think you can buy ones with a wider base though. width=200 Looks like I may go with this one....10000# capacity is quite a bit.

RE: Tongue Jack Block - Need one light, strong, and tall

I was thinking of the plastic boxes for the 4 the stabilizers do not have to be cranked so far down.....the "less down" they are, the more stable is the trailer Thoughts?
