Grey Wolf

We own a 2013 Grey Wolf Select 28BH. Our only issue after a 4000 mile trip was excessive tire wear, especially on the left side. Problem was improper alignment. Also bent one skid plate due to inadequate clearance. Forest River installs the cheapest axles and tires. So I had the axles replaced with 5200 lb. axles (and cross bracing) and upgraded from 13 inch tires and rims to 16 inch tires and rims (Maxxis 10 ply E rated radials) and changed the skid plates with square tubing and 4" wheels with cross bracing. Also the springs were strengthened by adding extra leafs. This increased the clearance considerably. All travel trailer owners should have the axles and wheels aligned before any long trips to avoid excessive tire wear and blowouts. (Blowouts appear to be a fairly common problem on these forums). When replacing tires, definitely go for the Maxxis radials.
A strong undercarriage will prolong the life of a TT.
Happy camping!

So far, so good.


We picked our new TT last Thursday and love it so far. I have some of the same concerns that I have seen other posts about, but nothing I haven't been able to take care of myself.


I was surprised how much construction debris was left behind access panels and inside storage areas that I wouldn't expect the dealer to clean. I took care of it my self. I'm not the type to have someone else do what I'm perfectly capable of.


The one concern that I'm addressing with Forest River is the mis-matched locks on the main and bath door. My dealer explained that this is normal. If that is the case, it's strange. I'm not sure why it would be normal to have two different locks on doors on the same unit. It's a small concern and we'll see how it plays out.


It is surprising how easy the larger TT is to pull and back up. I'm used to an 18ft and how easy it is to "whip" the old one.


So far the only mods that I have made is adding a slide topper, installing a water filter, installing a Max Air vent, and getting rid of the 751 key on the storage doors.


I'm heading out this weekend for the first trip. I don't expect any problems, but if any should arise, this is where I plan to come for solutions.


Thanks,
Dave

What do you mean "all electric " the only thing we "nned" ac for is A/C, why would you want to give up the option for running on propane ???

My locks are different as well. I was told the door handles come in a single pack, since not all TTs have multiple doors. That is why two keys. I dont mind at all.

How did you change up the 751 locks on the doors. I want to do that as well but wasn't sure how to do it.

I purchased 4 Cabinet locks from Home Depot. Easy swap, it only takes a few minutes for each compartment. It took a couple of trips to HD to find 4 with matching key codes on the back of the package.


Here is a link to what I purchased.
