RE: Where to jack

Drag the trailer to the tire shop and let them deal with it. No thanks. The kids as discount started jacking mine up by the middle of the axle. Then they tried to use the rubber portion of my Dexter kit. I had to school them on how to lift a heavy, triple axle toy hauler. Always by the frame is how I lift mine.

RE: Need Toy Hauler with 15' garage or more, What to look for?

Do you have to have a garage? I think only a few models have a garage over 15'. You may have to go a non garage model Nice tow rig. I have the same and I can't feel my 17,000lb trailer behind me. Awesome.

RE: Generator dies after load

What about the choke? I had this same issue with mine and replaced the choke. All good.

RE: 05 WW FS2600 rear hitch

Always hook a hitch to the frame. Not that thin piece of metal.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Repacked all bearings. Greased suspension. Fixed crack in fuel station tank. New Propane hose. Adjusted brakes. Getting ready for dune season!!!!!!

RE: Nothing Stays secure!

What are you connecting the straps to? Frame? Suspension? Tires? You should be hooking straps to the front and running them towards the rear of the machine. Then do the opposite for the rear. Criss Cross pattern if you will. The wheel turning is no big deal, unless you are connecting your straps to the wheels. Which is not the right way to do it.

RE: 04 FS3000

Yes, get the IOTA smart controller, assuming you still have the converter that Warrior put in originally. Hey Linc. Wasn't the stock converter in these units an Iota? I'd keep shopping. Might as well upgrade to a good inverter/charger while you're at it. That is correct. I still run the stock stuff, with the smart controller.

RE: 04 FS3000

I would leave something on when it is plugged in all the time. Fridge or something. Yes, get the IOTA smart controller, assuming you still have the converter that Warrior put in originally. For the roof, the front and rear seams, I would use Eternabond tape. Amazing stuff and won't crack like Dicor will over time. I did that to both of my front and rear caps. 5 years and still looks great.

RE: 04 FS3000

They all have the potential. I owned a 2002 FS3000 and never had an issue. But I was careful when I went off road to make sure I wasn't bouncing the tongue really bad. Just check all of the welds/joints for any cracks. Awesome trailer.

RE: Trailers, Trucks and Toy's Oh My...

Absolutely I have. It was nice but I didn’t need it. And not worth the cost increase of $7k over my F350 Not like I am doing u turns all the time in my truck.

RE: Trailers, Trucks and Toy's Oh My...

Sign and drive baby!!!! What makes America great. U only live once. Do what makes u happy. F450 is overkill, unless u just want it. The new F350 will be within all of its ratings with that trailer. the old f350drw was capable also, but to get the wide track front axle you now have to get a 450. Want and need are different.

RE: Tongue weight issue on new toy hauler

That is a 100% band aid fix. Cheap for them. Moving axles is not cheap for them. Horrible service.

RE: Tongue weight issue on new toy hauler

Forest river has had this issue for years. I agree about axle placement.

RE: Goose Neck Adapter

I just shake my head when guys insist there's no difference when using a gooseneck adapter and argue there's no change in forces. Since I'm an engineer and took Statics and Dynamics in school it's clear as a bell where the forces are different. Oh no. 2 Engineers on this forum???? Watch out!!!!!

RE: Expedition w/Toy Hauler and 2 SeaDoo's

Have you factored how big of a cargo area you will need to haul the seadoos and a trailer? My buddy puts his seadoos in his toyhauler with his SXS. But he has a 42' 5th wheel with 21' of cargo. Your Expy won't like towing anything very big. Tail wagging the dog.

RE: Goose Neck Adapter

Yep. Been a known issue for years in the toyhauler world. I have known 3 buddies that used it and didn’t listen to me. They ended up with the same results. Dolla dolla bills yo!!!!!

RE: Please help choose a Truck and Toy Hauler

I've considered keeping my current truck but what worries me is the hitch/tongue weight limit. Truck's tongue limit is 1000 lbs with a weight dist hitch. Let's say I pick a toy hauler with a dry hitch weight of 750 lbs and load up water (tank in front) and a 1500 lbs SxS over tandem axles. What do you estimate the hitch weight will be? This is my biggest concern.Many times the tongue weight goes down with the TH loaded, they are designed that way. Look at my real world numbers, 2 full size quads only lowered it by 200lbs. And that was with putting the quads all the way back against the ramp. Can't do that with a SXS.

RE: Please help choose a Truck and Toy Hauler

I have real world tongue weights of a dual axle toy hauler, measured at the ball mount of the trailer. We did no water/no toys. TW was 1100lbs. Full water (150 gal)/no toys. TW went to 1900lbs. Full water/2 full size quads. TW went to 1700lbs. You will be all of 1500-1700lbs of tongue weight with a hauler that holds a decent amount of water and is a dual axle. No way around that. No he is looking at 20' TH, not the 30' you had.....this is one exception where he has the right truck and does not need a new one. You will be fine with your truck. Bottom line, get the trailer, tow it a few times, if you feel you want a bigger truck after that go for it. I wasn't talking about my trailer. I was talking about a buddies. It was 26' with dual axle. The OP listed a 27 foot model..... so...... seems pretty close to my buddies 26' that we measured. Still has the wrong truck, sorry.
