RE: 22 to 24 foot garage?

Might check out Cimmaron trailers. Transwest is selling them with Outlaw living conversions. Will be pricey. Probably better quality than standard RV manufacturers.

RE: generator maintenance?

I'd change the oil, spark plug and air filter. It it runs smooth I wouldn't worry about varnish. Add fuel treatment if concerned.

RE: Generator use during travel

Yes I have mounted generator on a rear rack. Ram 30 amp cord to it. Ran fine driving down the road. No issues. I was running A/C and frig on electric. BUT, the hitch did fail. It cracked the welds. I caught it before loosing it, but that was luck. I had a Yamaha 3000 generator. I have run same genny in truck bed with no issues.

RE: Fifth Wheels with an onaboard Onan

Like others have said, it'll be propane, not gas like your Raptor.

RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

We upgraded to the Roadmaster Comfort Ride and it was a big improvement.

RE: Curious: difference between a WD hitch and Hensley Arrow

I once owned a Hensley Arrow. I started with traditional WD and friction sway control. The HA was a game changer. If they cost $500 instead of $2500 I think many more TT owners would have one. I never had any wear or maintenance issues.

RE: Hauling generator on upcoming trip

We've done both. In bed and on the back like Padredw. We had a 3000 Yamaha so very similar weight. Our hitch on the back cracked and sagged first time out. Luckily we caught this. WE reinforced the hitch, but never did this again. Back of truck bed has worked well. Typically would unhook truck from 5er when running genny. New rig is a TH so it's built in.

ATV Trails in Minnesota

Heading to Minnesota in a mid September and looking for advice on where to stay and ride. Wife on ATV (4-wheeler) and me on dirtbike. Need someplace we can ride out of campground (35'TH). Prefer hook ups, but can also boondock Looked at Aitken area (North Country Trail System?) and Nevis (Paul Bunyan State forest). Need your help.....please.

RE: Why remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs

Our previous 5er had table/chairs. We liked the ability to move the chairs around as needed. We didn't need the extra bed space as we had 4 bunks in the back already.

RE: Generator vapor locking

You might try putting a fan near it and seeing if that helps. I have the same generator in our toy hauler. Our's has a drop frame in front for more storage, so when level, the generator is fairly close to the ground. I had a shroud made (under side) that channels the exhaust side towards the driver side, leaving the fuel/air inlet side cooler.

RE: Onboard generators

Answer: #A - Onboard generator. Onboard is great to run 2 a/c's. It's hot here and we dry camp at dirt bike races once a month. Plus we like the having all the conveniences. That said, if our needs are limited we also have a Yamaha 3000 purchased before toy hauler that will run 1 a/c or heater. Would not want a propane unit. Too much trouble to fill. We've run 75 plus gallons of fuel through ours in the last couple month.

RE: Adding on board Generator

We have the same 5.5 Onan that Michelle.S has, but gas version. Will run both A/C's plus frig, tv, etc. We have a toyhauler so we have 60 gal. of fuel capacity onboard I think you'd want a diesel 6 or 8K unit based on your rig. It should be plumbed into your onboard engine tank.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

We stayed at Archview Campground last year. It is full hook up. About 10 mi. north of Moab. It allowed us to ride dirtbikes and ATV out of campground without plates. That may not be important to you.

RE: Harbor Freight Predator 3500W question

Have this on my Yamaha 3000. Used it once for a dirtbike battery. Worked fine.

RE: Owning a Cummins Diesel?

I have a 2015 2500 with 65,000 miles. The after treatment system has been replaced under warranty (approx. 20,000 miles). No other issues. DEF available at all auto stores/farm and home/truck stops in box format. If you fill up at a truck island it's cheaper than in the box.

RE: Generator for travel trailer

Without many details, I'll assume you have 30amp service and will want to run the a/c. Honda or Yamaha 3000 would be my recommendation. I personally own the Yamaha. Will run 15,000 btu a/c for 9 hours on single tank of gas.

RE: High end gasser or entry level DP

My uncle debated this some years ago when Newmar made the Mountain Aire in gas and dp. This was prior to current diesel emission. I said go with the DP. Heavier chassis, air brakes, Allison transmission. Cost was about 10K more new. He opted for Ford gas (460 with tag). His choice, but probably wouldn't have been mine.

RE: Yamaha vs Honda 3K

We've had a Yamaha 3000 for 15 years. Never any problems. Just regular changing of oil/spark plug/air filter. Our has a twist style 30 amp plug. Dealer provided an adapter pigtail at purchase.

RE: Mattress

We replaced the mattress in ours with one from Ours is an RV King, but I think they can make full custom sizes also.
