RE: Fresh Water Tank

Can you slowly add water now and see if it leaks and where it leaks from? 2nd that! Ummm guessing I blew the tank? Have you looked for any damage yet. I always keep an eye on my overflow while filling. I sure you could use a Flow~Meter Water Timer of sorts.

RE: Rear Ramp Extension Springs

I replaced the corrugated aluminum on my ramp door with 3/8" plywood and smooth fiberglass laminate. It looks great but the door is now a little too heavy for the springs. I need to find a supplier for these Old style garage door springs. Garage door spring companies don't seem to have anything this large available. They are 39" long eye to eye and 2-1/2" dia with .290 wire. I would like to find springs the same length but with a little thicker wire. Anyone found replacement springs for their ramp? Maybe Homedepot https://www.homedepot.com/s/garage%2520door%2520springs?NCNI-5

RE: Accepting our fate....perhaps a TH after all

Depending on your model F 150 your Max towing SuperCrew configuration with the 5.5-foot bed — is 11,100 pounds. Choosing the 4WD option reduces the capacity to 9,400 pounds. Note: I've have owned an F-150 Now I own a Dodge Ram 1500 and Tow a 19 Ft'Tow Hauler dry Weights is 5,800 Loaded 7,200 even with a Big gasser 5.7 HEMI it's at it's limits. Fine on the flat's but on grades/ Hills it's really working the Moter.

RE: Sliding or Folding Door to Garage

Have you considered removing the frame of the door and flipping it around to open from the inside.

RE: Mirage Balboa Toy haulers

I have no knowledge of the Toy Hauler at all it looks very nice. I would only be concerned about the front of the rig being so flat with all of the wind pressure you probably wouldn't get very good gas mileage.

RE: Toyhauler bumper pull for polaris ranger

Hey Klutch, Something to seriously consider is the GVWR of the toy haulers you're looking at. I don't know which Ranger you have but, I'm guessing at least 1500 lbs wet. Add your RV batteries, propane bottles, generator, fresh water, fuel station, etc. and you can easily hit 2 tons of additional weight. That's a lot to ask of a small TH. I just weighed my rig completely loaded for a 3 week trip and I'm nearly 900 lbs over my trailer's GVW. Not good. Travelling with empty water and fuel tanks would solve that, but it's not always possible to find water near boondocking sites. DW and I were planning on trading it in on a bigger TH this Spring, but the Chinese flu hit and that changed things a bit. There's always a place to get water supermarkets, parks and gas stations This is the magic key. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-4-Way-Sillcock-Key-16PL0129/304217572

RE: Onboard generators

mrw8i ~ Generator. Easiest way to make coffee / I still use an old stovetop coffee percolator. Most of my buddies have propane generators And No issues at all.

RE: Onboard generators

I've been going to the desert for years camping in the bed of my truck on the ground in a tent and so on. In 07 I bought a Toy Hauler with a generator we have used it a few times especially in the Dez recently it was 105 nice to run the AC . Also once and a while I use the microwave but I usually cook outside and now and again the wife likes to blow dry her hair. My advice it's really nice to have a generator.

RE: Towing without WD hitch

I own a 07 Dodge Ram 1500 and an 07 Toy hauler. Dry weight 5,700 loaded 7,200 along with air bags and the Weight Distribution Hitch it's a perfect match.

RE: Security Bar over RV entrance door??

In the Dez a night we lock everthing with a long cable with littles bells on it. Even in the desert you'll hear someones getting their stuff ripped off. We to go for long adventures nothing has been stolen yet.
