RE: Finally added the solar Next up, water storage

I'm curious about how you added solar to the rig in 1 1/2 hours. Mine took days. You don't mention the battery monitor, inverter, shunt or any fusing. I already knew where I was mounting everything. Climbed up. Bolted down the panel. Ran the wire through the hole in the roof (into a box made for rv rooftops)to a fused 20A controller. Ran the wire to battery along the water line to an jacknife shutoff in the battery storage are. Then put the last fuse (30A) in place just before the battery bank. I did it all before noon, so there were no beer breaks.....and the wife was at a quilt retreat, so she couldn't bother me. It seems to be working great. With no obstructions, it should be able keep my batteries (3-80 amp/hr) charged fairly well when boon docking. Are you sure it's enough to run the water pump?

RE: 32ft Gooseneck Cargo Conversion to Toy Hauler

Looks like a cool and challenging project. Best of luck to you and the boys. Please keep us up to date on progress.

RE: Small Family hauler- HELP!

I think I've said it before, but here it is again. Wife has a Grand Cherokee. Nice little rig. I would not want to hook onto any toy hauler with it unless you call a 3 rail dirt bike trailer a toy hauler.

RE: The "three"happiest days...

We kinda had the opposite happen when we bought our Fuzion. We had saved enough to pay cash, but when trying to get the price we wanted were a couple thousand apart. I finally told the wife "let's go and think about it. That prompted the dealer to come back at our price if we would finance through them and not pay off the note for at least 6 months so that they could get the kick back. Worked for both of us.

RE: Help with finding 5th Wheel floor plan

OK I understand reason no 1 for the kids wandering about. However the fuel smell is a non issue if you take some care with the toys that ride in the garage. We have a 2009 Fuzion that we have never had a fuel smell in the garage. Wife's quad is a fuelly and I always shut the fuel off on the bike and run it a little before loading. The bigger annoyance is tire smell, but unloading and opening it up for a while takes care of it.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

We boon dock in the mountains and tried to stay as close to 30' as possible when we bought ours. Wound up at 34+' but it worked well. Shortly after a friend bought a 40 footer. Too much. Not sure if it would matter to you, but that horse trailer wouldn't go in many of our spots without dragging. Sits way too low. That's another thing we looked closely at when buying. Clearance and overhang. Some of the spots we camp drop off fairly steep from the road. I guess it all depends on where you wind up going. Hope you enjoy the journey, where ever it may be.

RE: Single axle a SUV?

Wife has a Grand Cherokee. Nice little rig. I would never put even the smallest toy hauler behind it.
