ramp door

So did you get your new door? A toyhauler's ramp shouldn't stress because you drive a Goldwing up and down it I would would think. BTW, any idea how long the FR warranty lasts on a structural thing like that? is it only one year do you know?

We did get a new door hopefully this one will last longer. I have made a plywood ramp that lays on the door in the tire path hopefully this will disperse the weight better and help the door

We have some issues that I've just posted questions about the biggest being a tear in the gel coat! Also, rain water getting inside the generator compartment which can then leak into the the RV interior.. not good! We have sealed the compartment so that stops happening and we're bringing it back to the dealer for the gel coat issue and will also have them address the generator compartment.
How did you make out on the gel coat repair?

Sounds like a good idea to offset some of the HD weight.
I have a Road King, an R1 and a couple 4 wheelers. Probably do the same when it comes time to load the Road King !!

Now if I can only figure out how to load the bike without jacking the nose of trailer so far up in the air that it looks like it getting ready to launch. After all I bought a toyhauler not a launch vehicle. BTW Steve where did you get the black tank flush valve. We don't really have any place close that we go and browse. People the live in BFE have never heard of us.

It is called a No Fuss Flush, there was another popular type that advertises a spinning nozzle. The reviews I read were not good. Users said it did not spin and some came apart inside the tank.

The No Fuss does not spin. It is a static nozzle.
Seems to work well.

before and after pictures. I added a ball valve.
Any chance we can get a parts list with a instruction sheet?

I did not keep a list. Went to Lowes with the drain tube and matched the threads to a plastic 90 degree elbow. The remainder of the parts i had on hand from doing home repairs. Sorry, when time permits, i will make a list

Anyone found a way to mount a TV in the bedroom?? We've been setting it on a plastic tub on top of the night stand.
