RE: Water Pressure

Check your water pump itself, many have a screen filter that clogs up - seems to happen to me every couple of years. Now I make a point to check it when I dewinterize each year.

RE: Toy Hauler rear door

I did some digging around found a couple companies that sell ramp doors Pelland Enterprises and Reaper Custom Fabrication I'm not affiliated or nor do I know anything about them so be cautious. I recall some other owners having had issues said a new door ran a couple grand. plus another $700 for shipping.

RE: dinghy towing question

Do both pins slide toward the safety pin? It could be an alignment problem with the base plates. I would try putting the pins in from opposite direction and see if they move away from safety pins. That would be handles toward the center of the toad. In my case after I changed the direction of inserting the clevis pin the head of the pin was now the piece resting on the edge of the clevis, not the cotter pin. While it's probably not a big deal, I'd rather be safe then sorry.

RE: dinghy towing question

Hello ...I'm slightly concerned about the safety pin failing or breaking some day and the bar with the red handle falling out. (have safety cables attached, but definitely don't want to need to use them...) Setup using ReadyBrute/Ready Brake tow bar, and maximus 3 tow loops on the jeep side. I have a ReadyBrute as well, had the same observation as you did. I didn't want to rely on the cotter pin, so I flipped how I inserted the clevis pins so the cotter pin is now on the outside. Inserting the clevis from the inside to the outside. I can't explain why the clevis pin seems to always move to the outside (towards bumper end) but it does. Now the pressure is on the handle, might not be as easy to remove in some situations but I've had no problems.

RE: Hercules Vs Endurance Tires?

No opinion, someone did say Cooper is owned by Goodyear. Correct as per Wikipedia;On February 22, 2021, the American Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company announced that it entered into an agreement to acquire Cooper Tire for approximately $2.8 billion in cash and shares. The transaction was closed in June 2021, and will result in Cooper shareholders owning approximately 16% of the combined company

RE: MicroAir Easy Touch Thermostat

You might reach out to them direct or via their Facebook group. I didn't find anything either, most people using them seem to not be boondockers where power isn't an issue.

RE: Running a/c off generator while towing

We've run it with our 5er and our Class A, no issues. We'd fire up the generator on the 5er about 45 minutes from our campsite to cool things off, but we were camping in 95° heat too.

RE: What's up with CGs?

After reading that long list I'd say they are sick and tired of rude campers and getting bad reviews and being yelled at after kicking people out for not following even basic camping etiquette. One of our regular CGs has always had pretty firm rules on pets and kids - to the point some get upset. I get a laugh out of those that complain online about their rules, which are clearly stated, but still people try to play like they didn't know the rules. So the read receipt is their attempt to document you've been given, read and understand the rules - though it's not a very good way of doing it. My only issue is that if they are having to make that big long list with ALL CAPS I'd think that CG has some massive problems going on and I'd probably avoid it just since I don't want the drama. I'm curious about your thoughts after your trip.

RE: Bad sway from Toad

BurbMan it should be as level as possible when setting the combo up. I've read various articles and I can't say for certain that being unlevel would cause the sway. This article does a fairly good job explaining why being level matters. This video from Demco says it should be level or within 3" in either direction. My first tow out with our setup I was hyper nervous and getting used how the Jeep felt behind me and watching the camera, but I was the same first time out with our ATV trailer and boat. I did see some minor sway if I hit a pothole with the Jeep but it quickly recovered each time. You might offer to follow behind your friend to see if you see sway as he tows it.

RE: Bad sway from Toad

Sounds odd, the rating for the RV hitch is 7500# so it's adequate on that spec. The RV is 30' with 185" wheelbase. Do you know if the towbar was level when hooked up? Without knowing what equipment is being used it's all just pure speculation, but I'm thinking the tow bar setup is the area I'd be looking at.

RE: CC safety

The card pretty much needs to be right on top of the device when "tapped" as you will find when you use it you've got to be within about half and inch for it to work. There are a lot of good facts about this here is one article from Square that may help. You will find the mag stripe won't be around for long by 2024 they will begin to disappear.

RE: Newbie Ques for hitch selection

Check your owners manual first, the online version I found said, "A weight distributing hitch is not recommended for use with your vehicle, as an improperly adjusted weight distributing hitch may reduce handling, stability, and braking performance." Which it totally not what I expected.

RE: No water pressure

Do check the sediment screen (if installed) on your pump itself. First trip out I had to dig around to clean mine out too. Was also my reminder to bleach the holding again.

RE: Power drain

My question where & how do I look to find the source of the drainage? I had this same issue with our Coach. I could isolate the house batteries, but not the coach battery which could drain and kill itself within a couple months. I started off by bringing the RV home after 6 weeks and with a 30 minute drive on the freeway and leave it plugged in for a couple nights then back to storage. I suppose I could have gone through each fuse trying to isolate the draw. But it was much easier to put a knife blade battery disconnect switch on the battery. Once I did, it solved all of my issues.

RE: New dog!

We used the Regalo baby gates. But with the door in the RV it might be tough to find that isn't to wide. For the exterior doors you might look into using some these Banister Adapter Y-Spindle Rods as they don't get knocked over as easy if they wrap around a door frame.
