some of the problems I have had on my lx3112

Although we love our trailer and it seems to fit our needs very well this is a list of items that we have experienced.

First gas valve seems to have a hard time switching from tank to tank. I have replaced the gas valve and it works but still sometimes takes awhile before it stays on.

Circular shower operable panels didn't join together. They met in the middle portin but the top and bottom portion had about a 1/2 gap. The one door is wider in the middle creating this problem. Talked to Forest River and they are to send me a new set of doors but that has been about 3 months ago.

Landing jack on the electric motor side failed after about 5 months Forest river sent one right out. Now I will buy repair kit to salvage bad jack to have a spare.

Not getting much heat to the bedroom so I took out Microwave to get to the heater and found that the out let flexible tubing was smashed closed and very little forced air could move through it. Truly there is not enough room for the flexible tubing to be fully opened. I made some cuts and things seem to be working better now.

I have replaced the fuse on the landing jack motor and will soon replace the fuse holder as it is very cheap and the connection can become loose allowing for a high resistance problem and then blowing the fuse. I have also had the drive shaft from the landing motor fall off because of a funky retaining pin.

Other than that things have gone well as I have mentioned we have had the trailer for six months have traveled roughly 10,000 miles and have used at least 3 weekends a month.

Always eager to hear from other Stealth owners

I had the same issue when I was at the river the landing gear fuse kept blowing. It was a cheap setup to begin with. I was thankful one of our camping friends is an electrician and he cut the wires and installed a auto fuse thing, so when it pops it resets itself. It took him like 5 mins to fix, I asked him why don't they use those types and he said they run about $12 so it's not cost effective.

I have visions of having to lower my tire pressure down to get the truck under the pin. Then trying to get air back in my tires.I kind of fixed that problem, Harbor Fright had a huge new store sale so I picked up a 3lb pancake air compressor that goes up to 100psi for $40.

Where did you get your automatic fuse deal that sounds like something I could use.

What model toy hauler do you have?

Thanks

You can find these at Auto Zone, Advance Auto, Napa etc... You can get them with blades just like fuses or with 2 posts and nuts. They are called 12V Breakers.
Here is a post style can get several amp sizes at the store. Wells Manufacturing/30 Amps circuit breaker (CBR30) | Circuit Breaker | AutoZone.com

Here is a blade style the one shown is a manual reset but at the store they have auto reset ones and various amp sizes. Painless Wiring/15 Amps push-in manual reset circuit breaker (80108) | Circuit Breaker | AutoZone.com

Ok new problem on 2011 lx3112 tire wear on the inside of 3 tires to the point now that I should replace. Talk to a trailer alignment shop they indicated that many new trailers have same problem. $255 for the alignment They use a laser machine and then bend them into alignment. Talked forest warranty rep hoping to get reimbursed ha ha. They want me to haul trailer 160 miles each way and leave it with a dealer. Any one have tire wear issues?
