    I bet this solves the mystery for Joe (orignal poster).

    Take care,

    On my Cyclone the thermostat control is up high in the recessed area that the bunk beds fill up when fully raised up. when the beds are only partially raised it does hide the thermostat that controls the fan. It works great when the bunk beds are down in place and the person on the top bunk can control it.

    Lou, Brian, Everyone,

    Thanks for all the replies. Ya'll are great. Found the crank and it was above the loft beds in the living room. Lou, someone here on the site told me about not starting the bike but to use the clutch to back it down the ramp. Makes sense since the front brakes will cause the bike to slide on the ramp when it's so steep. Has anyone ever tried winching the bike up backwards so that it's facing the back of the Toy Hauler. Then you could just ride it down......

    Joe, I thought of the wench but didn't know if I could operate and guide the bike. I also thought about using my bike jack to turn it around once I had the bike in the TH but wasn't sure about the dipples in the floor. Glad you got the vent closed. Hope to see you on the road some time. We just put the house on the market and hoping it will sell so I can retire/retire (2nd time for me) and hit the road full time after the first of the new year. Stay safe
    Lou

    Lou,

    Don't know what's happening when I try to reply but this is the second time I hit Post Reply that it didn't happen. Anyways we put our house up for sale back in April and I will be retiring for the second time also (ret AF E-7). I am currently working for the US Federal Courts as a Computer Systems Engineer at their main Help Desk in San Antonio. We will be heading to Wyoming (Grand Teton's) in May of next year and from there to Calif to see the Redwoods and then on up to Washington state to visit the DW's brother. I hope to be in Sturgis, SD for the rally next August. Be safe my friend and Ride to Live Live to Ride. Hope to see you on the road sometime.

Yes, they are great TH's and the only thing that surprised me was the first time I unloaded my 09 Ultra was the steepness of the ramp, front brake locked but the weight of the bike plus my 225+ slid the front tire almost all the way down the ramp...that was an eye opening experience
    I never use the front brake. Using the front brake unloads the front tire and locks it up, once locked and going backwards it is almost impossible to gain control.
    You need your balance so that just about negates using the rear brake.

    Put it 1st gear, engine off and just "clutch" down the ramp. Works great. As you let the clutch out you are "loading" the rear tire and actually increasing the braking effectiveness.

    As for going in the trailer - if you haven't done it yet it can be unnerving. I "aim - go - commit" Once I head up the ramp I don't stop till the front wheel is in the trailer/off the ramp.
    I also have a 12 volt winch mounted in the forward left corner to use in case the ramp and or bike is wet.
