RE: Gen octane recommend

ANYTHING ethanol free should be fine for a generator.

RE: Heavy Duty leveling block suggestions

What are some proven recommendations that some of you have used with success on the same weight trailer? Wood blocks. 2x8 I built some using 2x cross stacked, capped both sides with 1/2" plywood. The plywood won't split, just screwed them together. Makes about a 4" tall block. I cut them to the same size as the lego blocks so they all stack in the same location. I also have an Anderson ramp type leveler, need a second. It works really well if the ground is gravel as it won't slide. We boondock in the desert most of the time and I try to get reasonably level before deploying auto level. Often have to put blocks under rear jacks as I've raised them up all the way for ground clearance. Another is to get ahold of scraps from a construction site using composites, like OSB and Glulam, those products are pressed together and are super strong.

RE: Looking for ideas on hauling bicycles in toy hauler

By the way Nayther... We really must be getting old. When the talk in the Toy Hauler forum turns to e-bikes... Amen bro! Actually I've been eyeing the fat tire versions, can access some offroad stuff that are "non-motorized" and some MTB trails. A desert racing friend has some and they love them, he rides his all around Ridgecrest/Inyokern

RE: Looking for ideas on hauling bicycles in toy hauler

I wish we had had a TH all these years of hauling our two ebikes on the front of our TV. It takes an hour to tie them up so they don't bounce around too much on the bad roads to Florida AND they get dirty especially on the snowy roads. Are the e bikes easy enough to lift onto a rack? Not sure how much they weigh, looking at them myself.

RE: Voltage Triton 3521

I have not seen a decently built RV in a few years. The higher end units, not built by Thor or FR seem to be better but I can't say for sure. The difference in build quality from my 2007 Rage'n to my 2019 Wildcatt is night and day. And the Rage'n was built after WW bought them from National.

RE: Old Fuzion value

Market it HOT right now. I sold our 2007 Rage'n for 12,500 2 1/2 years ago to a close family friend. It was a great deal but couldn't get any bites so dropped it enough for them to buy it. They just bought a bigger TH and are selling our old one, asking 17,500. I'll bet he gets 15 for it.

RE: Couple of Ramp Questions

they don't seal well at all. Our Rage'n never leaked water from the rain but I remember getting some water in while towing in a downpour. We're in So Cal so not a lot of rain. We did spend about two weeks in Oregon one year in November along the coast and it rained a LOT! No leaks. But if the wind blows just right it whistled and came in around the ramp. You could see daylight at the lower corners, shoved some paper towels in once and that helped. If we still had it now i'd get some water weenies to stick in the cracks.

RE: Work and Play quality decline? Upgrading from a W&P 21UL

Seagull843 - you might take a look at ATC too. nayther, I could be wrong, but I thought Work and Play was always a Forest River product. I can't find any info on FR purchasing them. could be, just from memory. If they're FR then that explains it, quality has slid exponentially in the last 2-3 years.

RE: 2008 Weekend Warrior CR3705 holding tanks plumbing

Do it before the valves fail, had one break once, pulled the handle out of the disk. Of course it was a black water tank that was FULL!That was a bad situation got lucky and found a dump station that I could back over, one with a catch basin around it (this was a truck camper so valve was in far back corner. Unbolted the bolts very carefully and got the **** to drain enough to make it work but it was still a NASTY job.

RE: Work and Play quality decline? Upgrading from a W&P 21UL

I believe your old one was built by W&P before FR bought them out? If so that's all the explanation needed. If not then I'd call W&P and ask them.

RE: Toy Hauler legend has passed

Sad news, he was a character, always with the black coat and hat. Met him once at the Sand Sports show when the new Warrior started. RIP Mark was it Covid?

RE: Riding in Cal City

Keep in mind that the Cal City regulations apply ONLY to Cal City land (private) and not BLM land (federal). Not sure the plate is recognized on federal land. I know if you have an out of state OHV you need a CA temp. permit (temp. green sticker).

RE: Onan 4K - Code 36 - Low Fuel or What?

if you didn't put anything in the gas, then let it sit for 6 months, the pilot jet is plugged. Guarantee it and it cannot be fixed. Replace the carb, they're cheap. Do a search and you'll see many have tried to clean them (my son is one) but there are too many tiny passages. I see you're in CA so you're getting ethanol in your fuel if you use regular, it is hydroscopic (attracts moisture) so if you don't run it then the fuel evaporates and leaves the moisture behind. did you pull the float bowl (easy to do)? If there's white residue then that's your answer. You experienced part of that when you started it last, "runs up and down". At that point it might have cleaned itself out if fuel system cleaner was used, but it sat and got worse.

RE: Toy Hauler Toy Selection

tough one. I was going to suggest golf cart but that won't be street legal. you can plate/use a SxS in some states but not most. Having to unload every night though, for something you use occassionally would be a deal breaker for me, way too much hassle. One option is a small 4x4 like a Suzuki Samarai, hard to find though

RE: Best/worst reviews no help

As noted above, I've seen a few issues that pertain to this... First, the negatives make more noise - no one comes on posting positive comments because their rig ISN'T leaking. You have to take the number of negatives in the context of how many silent and content owners are out there. The number of those negatives that can be traced back to faulty maintenance is also a tremendous unknown! Second, as people had said, the pre-inspection is essential. Make sure the dealer knows, well in advance, that you expect to spend hours scouring the rig and that no money will change hands until you've completed the inspection. There WILL be things that need to be remedied, and you should make sure that is all done to your expectation. Finally, I would not encourage anyone to buy an RV, particularly a trailer, if they weren't at least reasonably handy. Owning a trailer comes with issues - that can't be avoided. Some are from the factory, others are because they are little more than a fancy looking garden shed flying down the highway at 65 mph. In 8 years of ownership, I've had our Rockwood in the shop twice - once to replace the tires and the other time to replace a sagging axle. Everything else I've simply managed myself. Plan to spend some time, each year, fixing the little things, and that will go a long way in your enjoyment overall! Well said. The build quality degradation from my 2007 toy hauler to my 2019 fifth wheel is exponential. I blame the mega mfrs. like Forest River and Thor, they bought up all the smaller, more quality focused companies and they're all cookie cutters coming off just a few assembly lines. Having said that I've read a lot of good things here for Work and Play trailers. Smaller company and quality built, maybe not as fancy though.

RE: Jack Knife Sofa Fold flat on wall?

I think you're talking apples and oranges. a sofa with jack knife bed is not the jack knife bed/bench that comes in Toy Haulers. You can't fold up a jack knife sofa.

RE: newbie

we are loading up and getting ready to head oit to the races again this weekend. I will get some pictures. Thanks for the welcome. I'm so jealous. All of our stuff here out west has been cancelled. Enjoy. Our desert races are going strong Dave. Just got back from a Sprint Enduro in Johnson Valley. 29 Palms for a GP the week before.
