RE: 35 ft 5th wheel toy hauler

washer/drier in a 35' is a tall order as well.

RE: Voltage Dump Valve Replacement

black valves are all 4". I THINK the grey is 2". If you OD of ABS is about 1/4" more than "nominal" size (ie 4" ABS is 4 1/4" OD).

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

we had a 30' fiver with open floor plan like the link posted. I hauled our Gold Wing in it once, I put it a bit back from center over the axles, towed it about 800 miles once and never felt any difference, but then again it was sitting right over our single 150 gallon water tank, which is 1250lbs.

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

From experience related to all of our trailers, all I can say is that it helps to be able to do your own maintenance and repairs. All of our trailers have had one issue or another when we owned them. We've experienced a couple minor issues with our Momentum where some interior trim fell off. Truer words were never spoken. My DW makes that comment frequently when I'm fixing or modifying something. "how can anyone own an RV that is not reasonably handy?" We have some friends that are dying to get an RV but he has ten thumbs (plays the guitar like a madman though) and I cannot imagine him owning one.

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

Just curious why the jacks should be in the highest position? I would think lower would be more stable since there would be less of the leg extended. As long as there is enough clearance so they don't drag. I've never had the auto-level before so I don't know. both are correct. My new fifth wheel had the jacks so low I could not back into my standard residential driveway without the rears contacting the approach, they were only about 4" above the ground, would never work when taking the trailer offroad. Easy solution is to raise them up to max height, then carry some blocks, either the lego type or make some out of wood. Since we boondock in the desert a lot I have various forms of blocks and plywood squares so stuff is stable and doesn't sink into the dirt/sand.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

{SNIP} F'g. Trolls You're not in CA so you have no dog in this fight. Stick to the PNW, you have no idea what you're talking about. Very difficult to have an intelligent conversation with ignorant people. Dave, you can delete this if it's inappropriate but so sick of this kind of garbage after all the time I've put into supporting our sport. ___________ EDIT: It's all good. His post is gone now.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

This is all thanks to the AQMD. They did a study on OHV emissions based on totally bogus useage data; most OHV's are operated only hours each month. Would be surprised if the average use is more than 5 hours per month on an annualized basis yet they used some BS number 4-5x that amount to justify their draconian ****. AQMD is an independent department that does not answer to anyone, they can and do exactly what they want with no regard to economic impact, recreational use, etc. Do you have a link to that study? The air quality regulations cover evaporative emissions as well as tailpipe emissions, which unless everyone drains the fuel from their bikes between uses, that's still a factor whether it's being ridden or not. But I'd like to see the study that used inflated usage data. A non-compliant 2 stroke can emit up to 50 times more hydrocarbon pollution than emissions compliant 4 stroke engines, even modern fuel injected 2 strokes emit 10 times more hydrocarbons. So even if they only run 5 hours a month, they still emit much more pollution than compliant bikes. Anyone that's camped next to someone with a cheap 2-stroke generator knows how much worse the exhaust is from 2 stroke engines. What is the main drawback to buying a compliant bike? Cost or performance? Don Amador is the front line on this: https://quietwarriorracing.blogspot.com/2021/06/r5-regional-forester-appointed-as-new.html?fbclid=IwAR0YoDw2h4s_ZZ80-LB8OVmOX3qEK1itvX6EgfN9YFm_Aguou5KOt33CpKM Another that was involved in the study itself: Chris Real https://www.facebook.com/chris.real.16 I'm not going to get into it with you. You obviously have a different agenda and we're not going down that rabbit hole. I've been involved in AMA District 37 desert racing for 50+ years and in some very active capacities at various levels of the sport. You are free to do as much research as you wish. Until REAL useage numbers are used it's "convenient statistics". Data can be manipulated in so many ways but if inaccurate statistics are used the data interpretation is useless. And if you have to ask what the difference is between two and four strokes but to compare to a portable generator then I'm done.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

You need people who will change the laws. It’s getting hard for bikers and campers in California. Mod Edit: Just trying to keep the politics in check Trust me we have a lot of lobbiests and activists that are well connected in Sac. but the liberals are hard to cross the aisle. and with a super majority its worse. Fortunately we do have allies here and there. As of 2022 model year ALL OHV's must meet emission requirements except "closed course" race bikes. There is a bill in Sac. to exempt "race vehicles" for competition and "practice". The use of these machines in non-sanctioned events is only allowed for "practice". To prove you are "practicing" or "testing" you have to hold a valid competition license in any recognized organization. For example AMA District 37, SCORE, DP4. This bill is moving slowly in Sac. Current green stickers expire next June so this must be in place by then. Unfortunately BLM, a federal agency, is the one that checks the stickers (CA requirement) which makes no sense either. My son managed to score a 2021 Husky 300 so he'll be good. Just had a friend get a 2022 KTM 300 (these are both non EPA complying two strokes). Will be interesting to see what kind of sticker they issue to the 2022. This is all thanks to the AQMD. They did a study on OHV emissions based on totally bogus useage data; most OHV's are operated only hours each month.

RE: Can I safely tow a Fuel 362 with 2020 2500HD 6.6

you're reciting numbers from their website. You need to look at the actual capacities of the truck you have. It should be in the glove box on on the door jamb

RE: Anybody still going out?

yes, done until the fall, not sure where/when we're camping this summer.

RE: Cuddeback to Calico ride

Call out turns AND everyone should wait at the turns for next car ;) Yeah. That was a tough lesson to explain to the newcomers. Luckily the guy riding sweep was one of our regulars and knows me well enough to know when we weren't on the same page anymore. I've been so frustrated with this before and from seasoned riders as well. Had a large group get totally separated when ONE rider didn't confirm a turn. And we were only going form north of Cuddeback to the Husky. Makes it worse when its really dusty and everyone spreads out, or you have one or two VERY slow riders.

RE: Ramp door patio DIY. Whose done it?

^ Yes, load rated eye bolts. Makes sense. I think I'll use something like a 2 bolt D ring type tiedown on the ramp door. I did like Y Guy. Took trailer in to factory once for warranty work and they thought the eyebolts were factory installed and welded them shut. Seems that Rage'n or WW execs were using the ramp on their personal rig as a deck and the eyebolts failed, dumping everyone on the deck in the river/lake. So the directive was to weld them up anytime they saw them. Would have been great to see Warmuth dumped in the drink.

RE: Recommend An AC Unit

you're wrong. They ARE serviceable. Add a suction line service port to charge. First fix the leak, pull good vacuum and weigh in the proper charge. Hey Steve - Ordinarily I'd tell someone to prove it when they make a contrary claim like this, but Nayther is an HVAC guy and I trust what he says. thanks Dave unfortunately we've become a disposable society. When's the last time you took your T.V. to a repairman? Hell, we replaced our washer/drier last year because they were making funny noises but were 20 years old; didn't even call out a tech. The company we've used for years has folded. Servicing small systems like that of our RV units is more comparable to fixing your refrigerator. Don't let someone install a "piercing" valve, they're prone to leaks. Make sure they're brazing in a Schrader type service port: service port

RE: dust problem, new seals fold down door on attitude toyhauler

my 2007 attitude 33' is showing daylight thru the rear seals,,, has anyone found a good replacement seal that has some heavy duty adhesive and is extra squishy for best dust sealing on dirt roads? thanks not seen a toy hauler that doesn't have daylight around the door, especially at the bottom.

RE: Need new tires

Run LT tires no matter what you go with. Cheap and tires are not a good combination when it comes to tires. Agree on the price, collateral damage will eat up any possible savings. You were a huge proponent of Michelin Ribs, correct? Still feel the same? I have an EXCELLENT tire store I've traded with for 50 years so I'm going to have a chat with my buddies at Western Tire. I still run the Ribs, but only because Michelin pro rates them so well every time I get some ozone cracking. I get it every 2-3 years and then after year 4, it is so bad I am not comfortable. Michelin will give me between 40-65% proration so it is hard to start over with a different brand. I will only run LT tires, but some of my buddies run the G rated tires, ST, that are out there. Sailun is one and Hercules is another. They have blow outs. They blame them that is because they sit in the sun in Phoenix. I agree that is not the best, but these are tires that are only 1-2 years old. Even sitting in the sun, they shouldn't be blowing out that soon. I ran Goodrich LT tires on my Rage'n. Had two blow outs on the OEM, tires were out of date though. Thanks for the info. will include ribs in my discussion at Western Tire.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in garage

Look at killing all the 12v in the house (even if the gas is in the toy's tank). I wouldn't trust these devices to be ignition protected. Obviously, you need to keep brakes & brake lights connected. Look at killing all the 12v in the house (FRIG) = Runs off the house batteries. That's just silly. that post was from a non-toy hauler I'm sure.

RE: Need new tires

Sailuns vs. Good Year Endurance, which is better? I assume Sailuns are cheaper. In the market myself but not as concerned about weight since not a toy hauler anymore

RE: Trip Report - El Pasos out of Ridgecrest

Where did you camp? We were at Charlie's Place (Wagon Wheel) from Friday afternoon to Sunday. We were supposed to camp right across the road from there, above Ridgecrest, but one of the guys in our group was having trouble with his moho and he parked at the first spot he could make it to, just past the tracks on Searles. Is it called Dirt Diggers Camp? I thought of you on Monday. I had to take my truck back to Justin to have the turbo fixed. That guy is a wizard. Thanks for the referral. I saw your group, right next to the tracks right? Thought that was odd, told Pam they were using the box cars as wind breaks! We call that area "Prospectors camp" because they used to stage their enduros from there. Digger Camp is north of Searles cutoff then right, big open area east of the RR tracks where they end, about two miles north of where you were. Check your PM's sending you a pin drop request.
