RE: Weekend Warrior ft4005

Windowman you might find specs just searching the internet, but trying to find a brochure can be a challenge. I did a quick search but didn't find anything. As for the operating manuals, most all RVs of that era just came with a bundle of various manuals from the products installed in the RV; fridge, water heater, etc. You can probably find most items on the internet but for an RV from 2008-09 it maybe a bit of digging (I think that was the era of the FT4005. If you don't get the help you need hear the Mod can move this post to the Toy Hauler group, we still have some WW owners in that forum that may be able to assist you.

RE: Calculated MPG

I used an app called Road Trip. I use it to track the mileage on our daily drivers, as well as our motorhome. I track not only fuel consumption but it reminds me of service intervals and I track all of my expenses in the app. It takes me about 15 seconds to key in the mileage, cost per gallon then add the total as I'm pulling out. It helps make sure I stay up on service of all of our vehicles.

RE: Anybody launching a boat with a Class A?

If you can see the boat in your mirrors while dead straight behind you, you should have no issues. Personally I'm not sure I would attempt it without a review camera and microphone to hear what's going on, but the cam at a minimum.

RE: Anybody launching a boat with a Class A?

KD4UPL we have our 2007 Winnebago 35J which is a bunk model, we're original owners and even though our kids are out on their own we still enjoy it. With the King bed, 2 bunks, couch and dinette that coverts we've had 8 people in ours (couple on the floor) but it worked. Now the bunks are mostly storage for dog kennels and other items when we travel.

RE: Anybody launching a boat with a Class A?

We've launched our Four Winns several times with our Winnebago, depending on the boat launch it can be a breeze or a big challenge. One of the lakes, a USFS Campground is pretty tight but with a couple of spotters we got it done. At most of the USFS sites I've been to there isn't much space so getting the boat prepped for launch takes place out of the CG. Those gravel boat trailer lots are a challenge moving it by hand. We've never taken our Jeep along for launching the boat, but if I did I'd still haul the boat with the motorhome and then swap to launch. The second photo was the best place, great approach angle and I was actually able to launch with myself and my young son. That's a rarity. One campground we were at I watched a very smart older guy with a nice Class A "bribe" a younger guy with a pick up to launch and retrieve his boat. For him each morning/night. Amazing what a case of beer can buy you! width=640 width=640

RE: Best Toad braking System

Saying which is best is tough. There are many options and everyone mine define what is best differently. For some its convenience - plug & play & others its cost out the door. I think we all want reliability and ease of use. Once the air system is setup it's a pretty much plug & play. As I've never used it others can give feedback about your concerns. Before I ruled out the air braking I'd get advice as you did here, and talk to a dealership or two about things. For my setup I went with the NSA ReadyBrake system which I documented on this post

RE: Need help . No shore power

code3run on my old Raptor it was near where the 50amp cable plugged in, but behind a wall in the storage area. Getting to it was a pain.

RE: Need help . No shore power

If you have a transfer switch, yes they can fail. If you have a generator and you don't have to plug your cord in some place in the RV then you probably have a transfer switch. Mine got stuck in one position, in my case no generator power. I was told to find the transfer switch and with power off to tap on the box with a small hammer or butt of a screw driver. Sure enough I had power when I went to use the generator, but next trip same issue. I was told since Toy Haulers are often in be in dusty conditions and this can be an issue. Dealer cleaned it and never had another issue.

RE: Best place online for RV loan

At one time it seemed like Bank of the West was the biggest RV loan companies out there, I'm not sure if that's still the case or not. We had them, never an issue.

RE: purchased a custom dune sport toyhauler

Thanks for sharing your detailed experience with them. They've been around for sometime and mostly some pretty good reports, but none had shared as many details as you have. Hope for many miles of trouble free trips for you with it, let us know how things go.

RE: Winnebago quality

We've had our Winnie since we bought it in late 2006, I still have it because it's been a great ride and very few issues. When we were shopping the dealer PDI guy that I got to know gave me some pointers when I was comparing the Damon Daybreak vs the Winnebago Sightseer. Happy he did and happy I went with Winnebago. One of the great things I appreciate about the Winnebago of Class A motorhomes is the online resource they've maintained. You can download the wiring and plumbing diagrams, plus you can download a non-specific owners manual for the year and model. Winnebago Owner Resources When the time comes to buy another I will take a long hard look at Winnebago they'd be my first choice going in to the selection process, but quality changes so I'd do my own research at the time. If I was buying a used one I'd spend the money to have a professional go through the RV inspection to make sure I'm not getting somebody elses problems.

RE: Anyone installed extra d-rings in their toy hauler?

It will help if you share what year, make & model of Toy Hauler you have as well as what you are hauling. Knowing that can help give better recommendations.

RE: Hankook TH31

I've had the AH11s on my motorhome and been very happy with them. They are aging out but I was able to get another year out of them and if I was the gambling time I could probably get another. I will price new ones out this spring and I will be taking a look at the Hanook again.

RE: Suggestions for Printer/Copier/Scanner for RV

I kissed ink cartridges away and bought a Epson EcoTank. I've been very happy with it. But I've never taken it on a trip where it's bouncing around either. But I love that I only need to refill the cartridge that uses the most ink. Costco price was good, size was great about the only downside was the lack of sheet feed scanner, but that was a minor issue that I could have fixed if I bought the next model up.

RE: Plug and play wiring harness for Jeep

You could use the Mopar 82216358AA wire harness made by the manufacturer. You could, but at $450-500? There are much cheaper options.
