Hi All,

New to this forum. I also posted this to the general forum but not a single response???

Now wondering just how many of these are out there?



"I just purchased a used 2006 TF32SS. I have yet to see another unit like this anywhere on this site or even when I google it. All others appear to be 37-39' long. After just washing/waxing/testing all the equipment, I am really impressed with this toy hauler. Lot's of great features. Any others out there that can share there experiences with this unit?

Thx."

I also do not know what all the letters & numbers signify. I have a mk-33, but the overall length is considerably longer than 33'. Mine is also a toy hauler (08) , and I have left posts looking for a fellow owner so I could ask questions and correspond by talking about the exact floor plan, plumbing,etc. Although I did have reponses, most people said there were not many toy haulers made andto talk to a guy named Randy at the factory. I cannot find any service manual, and was told to tear into it and learn as you go.
I do not have anywhere to "tear into it" except the road in front of my house. So it is not an option to go in blind. There has to be someone somewhere willing to help us inexperienced toy hauler owners.
Agood start would be to explain what all these symbols mean--TT, PP, etc!!
I am very impressed with this forum, the people for the most part are genuine and helpfull. but I guess the toyhaulers are so much different, that it is difficult to compare apples to apples.
I ampretty good mechanically, but I use manuals religiously. Without one I am lost when working on a new item. I am told there are NO manuals for my coach, so I am looking for another avenue to learn the in's & out's of my toy hauler.
Any help with the abreviation's or the toy hauler will be greatly appreciated.
thank you
Steve Rees

Steven,

Good to hear from you. I have sent several e-mails back and forth to Sheila Mast at CrossRoads and she has been very helpful (smast@crossroadsrv.com). You can download a manual on their website but it is a very generic version and not much help with specifics to my trailer.

To you point, here's one of the last series of questions I asked for some answers with. She asked for my VIN # to be sure we were on the same page and I will now wait for her response. I think there is a specific version of the manual for my toy hauler available and it may cost me around 20 bucks but worth it.



...."Thanks Sheila. I did review this pdf file but it's really very general in
nature. Questions I have specific to this trailera are things like.....
1) Galley tank. Is there a separate gray tank for the fresh water galley?
2) Is there a part # fore the roof ladder? Mine didn't come with a ladder.
3) Are there manual cranks for both pull outs?
4) Are there replacement parts reference #'s or a specific manual?
5) Why do I have 2 separate "status" buttons for my battery? Were there
originally 2 batteries installed from the factory?
Please advise and if a specific manual is available, I will be more than
happy to purchase it."

Thank You for responding! I also bought a "specific" manual for my toy hauler. It is a small black book that is very general--it say's right on the front cover that it is for trailers& fifth wheels.

I have read it cover to cover a few times, and it does give a little more info than I had. It does not give any specific instructions for my (or your) coach.

What I am looking for ( and I assume you are too) is a service manual for my specific model.I am told that this does'nt exsist but I am having a hard time believing that there is not a book or pamphlet plublished to help the dealers service dept. Even if I could just get a copy of the blueprint used to manufacture my coach, Iwould be happy.

I am not getting all warm and fuzzy about ever getting one though.

I guess that you and I could share our experience , and struggles while learning about our fifth wheels though. I guess that this is going to be the best option available.

I still cannot believe there is not any manual available, I have purchased dozens of toys, trucks, and cars through theyears andI have recieved a manual with every one of them.

I wonder if the Crossroads people ever read these posts--I absolutely love my coach, but the lack af a manual is a definate strike against it.

Steve,

I will update once I hear back from Sheila.

To your other point, I can't believe that CrossRoads doesn't monitor these comments regularly as they need to hear any concerns out there from their customer base, howver, I haven't seen a post or reply back on any threads sincejoining and reviewingthis forum.

Maybe they might after reading this? We'll see.

Probably your best bet will be ask your questions here and research / question on RV.net.

CrossRoads does monitor the Forum. However, they typically do not respond to any of the posts.

I agree the manuals are way to vague to the point they are worthless. The first 2 letters should let you know weather you hav a 5th wheel or tt and what model. the 32 should be feet inside but not always the ss is your guess. It may mean super slide.

usually ss is super slide, RB is rear bath, FQ is front queen, RK is rear kitchen, QB is quad bunk, BH is bunk house.These are the ones off the top of my head. ANd CWIT is right, the first to letters is what model and type ie mine is ZT for zinger trailer, a CF would be cruiser fifth wheel. The number is the box length usually (not end to end), and the last 2 refer to style rear bath, bunk house, etc. Hope this helps you.
