RE: insulation on a 28 ft all aluminum

You need to ask WHERE the extra insulation is. The roof and walls are only so thick, so, unless they upgrade the quality of the insulation, you won't gain any benefit there. Extra insulation in the floor and for the tanks is a different story. Ask a lot of questions from the manufacturer, not the dealer, before you pay for something you may not need. if they use higher "K" value insulation it would be better, should not be a big add. If they're adding underbelly insulation as someone suggested that would be more $$

RE: Newbie To Full Tine

If you don't really know what you want buying used is a very good start. Depreciation on new RV's is staggering. You don't want to buy new, then decide one or two years later you want something else, you'll really get hosed on trade in or sales. Be careful on financing too, 15 years is common and you'll end up paying twice the purchase price (about) when all is said and done. WELCOME to RV'g!

RE: Weekend Warrior Red LED Side Marker replacement?

I have a local independent shop I use and they carry EVERYTHING RV. He was an early adopter of LEDs. The side marker lights are plentiful and look very similar. I lost a lens on one on my new trailer, took another in to match and still almost bought the wrong one. What's their contact information? Benlo RV http://benlorv.com/

Is that one LED? I don't think 2008 came standard with LEDs, too old.

RE: Installing TV in Toy Hauler

I did the backer board deal on my old toy hauler. The original cabinet for the TV was for a CRT, so could not put a decent flat screen there plus didn't like the height. mounted bracket to board, screwed board to studs. Mine was a homemade rigid mount.

RE: Resetting 5500 onan flashing light

the 3 flashes says there is an error, you need to hold it down in off for a few seconds and it will flash the actual code, first set of flashes is the first digit, second set of flashes is the second digit. It repeats each set of flashes 3x I believe. then repeats so 3 flashes followed by 2 would be error 32. You need the codes, easily found on the web.

RE: About to GO Full Time

I think having 3 AC is getting more common and with load management I can see how it might work. Inrush current is the killer so if that's managed by compressor cycling it should work. Remember 50 amp service is actually two 50 amp legs for 100 amps total, 3x what you get with 30 amps.

RE: Gas pump

Just something to add if your not going to be pumping you gas for awhile make sure you drain the gas line. WHAT ? After your pump is off you still have some gas in the line. In order to drain it your need to have the gas nozzle below the tank to drain what left in the gas line. Good advice

RE: Still confused about inverter n gen

yes, an UPS is the only way to truly have uninterrupted power. I have a 2,000 inverter and 50 amp auto transfer switch from Bestconverter (Boondocker). Don't remember which way but going from/to generator there's a delay, the other way not but either will drop power long enough to my satellite receiver that it must reboot.

RE: Heartland Fuel vs. Cruiser Stryker

I’m also looking into the Cruiser Stryker and saw the Fuel toy haulers. I don’t know for sure, but the Stryker, Fuel, and Torque are all part of the Heartland parent company. I would assume the similar floor plans have the same underpinnings. Through my research, it appears the Stryker Torque & Fuels are stronger than the competition with aluminum framed walls and roof where most others have wood truss roofs. I don’t have any Fuels close to me so my search is focused on the Stryker. I went in interested in the 2916 but the wife really likes the 3214. I need around 14 feet of storage to fit a Can Am X3 Max XRS. Anyone have an idea of a fair price in Southern California for one of these units(MSRP $60-65k)? My rule of thumb is at least 30% off MSRP. Thanks Darren I bought mine from DDRV in Wesminister and got 32% off MSRP and got a second recliner thrown into the deal. They strongarmed me to pay their $700 PDI fee which was a bunch of B.S. as the unit was not ready for delivery when I did my walkthough. I am still waiting on them to follow through with some of the cosmetic repairs. Bought my FR fiver from DD in June 2018. Noted many issues at walk through, all cosmetic but pretty serious. Had to scream and yell to get their attention. I was finally assigned to a service writer Robert Marcum and he made it all happen pretty fast. Overall I'd give them 8/10. Once we got it in we got it back in about two weeks and the work was done well.

RE: Gas pump

I had the nozzle condom AND the nozzle mitt on my toyhauler nozzle. The location of the pump station is right behind the rear tire and the bottom of the compartment is perf. steel for venting/draining so all the road debris gets in there, the nozzle is always dirty. This keeps it off the nozzle, work great, made out of Neoprene like a wet suit. Sold the trailer to the DW Godson and it's still got its condom and mitt!

I think I saw on facebook that its owners were found.

RE: Just wondering

I'm with Dave. Unless you're pulling a MONSTER trailer with a large load a 3500 will be plenty big enough, I think they're like 25,000lbs max now, that's a LOT of head room over most any RV.

RE: Where to jack

According to the axle mfg you should use the frame in front and behind the wheels. I use a jack under the axle where the springs are bolted to the axle. I also use a board between the jack and the axles. If your axles are on top of the spring pack you don't need the board. Same here. But if you're pulling all 4 at once you may just want to raise the entire rig up on stands, just place the properly rated jack stands under the frame at the front and rear spring hangers. I'd drop my levelers or jacks as well. This always made me nervous, only did one side at a time.

RE: PWCs and Toy Haulers

over the years I've seen several do it. Most with dollies or similar, both sit down and stand ups

RE: About to GO Full Time

If Winnebago did buy GD then the QC will be in the toilet as FR or THOR bought Winnebago I believe. Regardless we when we were shopping for our current 5er we looked at Winnebago and the quality was worse than most. Winnebago is not part of either Forest River or Thor they are traded on the NYSE as WGO. They bought the assets of SunnyBrook RV Inc, then in 2016 they bought Grand Design, in 2019 the assets of Chris-Craft, and just recently Newmar. Thanks guys, I stand corrected. However I do stand by my statement regarding QC, the 3 or 4 that we looked at, a couple had not been prepped, were terrible.

RE: About to GO Full Time

We almost bought a Grand Design 3 years ago and while we were looking I joined their owners forum and I'm still a member and frequent that forum occasionally. Owners were once in heaven there but it seems that now the honeymoon may be over with people complaining like all the other brands. If I was looking right now I would take a good look at KZ. They've been around long enough to be past the honeymoon stage. JK If Winnebago did buy GD then the QC will be in the toilet as FR or THOR bought Winnebago I believe. Regardless we when we were shopping for our current 5er we looked at Winnebago and the quality was worse than most.
