Boost 37STX13 owners?

Doesn't seem like there are many topics related to the 37STX13? Are there not any issues? Hopefully since I just bought one or are the just not that common? I wanted to get some feedback and any suggestions from other owners of this model. I just finished reading all manuals and taking panels off to figure out how to winterize and see how it is made.

I have a 2018, love it. No real issues so far. Had to call FR to find the water pump and the bypass valve but wasn't an issue.

I did get the 5.5 onan generator and glad I did.

Not many members here with the 37STX13.

Welcome,
Mike

I'm looking at getting the 37 this winter, I'm curious about weight though, what vehicles are you guys using to tow it? I have a 15 F350 SRW, the towing guide says 15,700. FR says the 37 is 12687 lb, add a generator and then my RZR (approx 1800lbs) and I'm guessing I will be close to or over 15,000 already, that doesn't leave me much room there and we will have to be careful how much we pack along.

I have a 2001 F-250 with the 7.3l. I have air bags on the truck along with an upgraded transmission and other tow upgrades done to the engine. I towed it home with no problems and will haul a dune buggy with it weighing around 1200 lbs. We do not haul water and with the generator I will be below my max.

When I first bought mine, I had a 2015 Chevy 2500 diesel. It was the High Country Version (max payload 2229) I was over max payload by 1000# dry, It was a bouncy ride to say the least. I ended up trading that one in and now I have a 2018 3500 DRW with a may payload of 4970. What a difference!

The pin weight on this 5er is like 3300#'s, we haul two 800# ATVs and I have the generator. Fully loaded with 30 gallons of gas in the tank and no water, I'm right at 17000#.

Nothing you do to your TV will increase max payload rating, I could have added another spring and airbags on my 2500 but at the end of the day it was still only certified for a max payload at 2229.


It was an expensive lesson, but pay attention to your TV max payload. I see TV all the time that are clearly overweight, I'm not independently wealthy and I did not want the liability!

Nice to see other 37STX13 owners

We purchased a 2019 in Oct 2018. Recently added, by Camping World, an ONAN, great add on. Question. Has anyone experienced their auxiliary gas tank "popping" with expansion as the gas vaporizes in the tank expand. When I say "popping"(deflecting the metal/Bulging) I mean loud enough to hear it 40'-50' away. Visual inspection of the tank doesn't look as if the tank is deforming. I've checked the gas cap venting valve and it appears to be working, put my mouth on it and blew through it. Obviously this is worrying as I don't need the tank deforming or worse bursting with pressure. Generator runs fine so I don't believe there is a vacuum or that it's not venting, it's somewhat confusing.

We purchased our 2019 2 months ago. Had it out couple times and love it over our bumper pull toyhauler. I added an onan myself and added 12 additional tiedown to garage. We haul two Harley Touring bikes and golf cart in the garage. Main reason we got this model was the 13ft garage. Fully loaded weights at 17200lbs with tongue weight of 2600lbs on the cat scales.

Welcome from Middle GA

Your post sounds similar to mine in the fact we had a 28' Toy Hauler just prior to our XLR37tsx13 5'er. We, like you love the 5'er. Hope you have many days of great RVing.

Under the toyhauler garage on the door side there is a charcoal canister to filter gas fumes from the tank, EPA filter. The actual 5/8Ē vent hose was pinched on mine. Soon as I cut the hose before the pinch it vented the tanks pressure out. Maybe worth look on yours.

Found the Problem

Looked at the canister, I believe, not to sure if it's just above the tank. I looked at all the hoses, etc. I did find the gas cap appeared faulty, but will defiantly check the hoses, especially the charcoal canister again. If you by some chance have a picture of the location on that canister, it would be most appreciated.

The charcoal canister is located about where the steps are into rear garage. You can follow the fuel lines down frame of trailer from the generator to its location. May have to use a mirror to see all connections as itís in the metal skid plate the fuel cell is also. If you look at diagram attached the vent hose #2 on mine had a kink not allowing pressure to release.
