RE: How can I tell if I have enough room to go to a 85 tire

245 75s are a good option too. Same load rating, slitely narrower.

RE: Need recommendations please

We have a 36 foot fiver, and after our(my) last mishap are now effectively shut out of my favorite place. You will find many of the NF camp grounds were built 30-40 years ago when RVs were much smaller and simply cannot accomodate large modern RVs. Heck, one loop of the state park were in now the large RVs have to be really careful to avoid trees. comfort is really a matter of how well the living space is arranged, not how big it is. As a general rule I think you will find that for every foot over about 30' you will loose available camping sites. At 40' you pool of available sites will be drastically reduced to newer resort type parks.

New lug studs and nuts are pretty cheap, can be found at most better auto parts stores, and are pretty easy to replace. Not a big deal

RE: sulfur smelling water and frig is freezing food

Sulfer smell is probably coming from the water heater. Unless you have an Atwood water heater change the anode rod. freezing food? What brand refer? Likely a clogged coolant line. You could try taking the refer out and laying in different positions hoping to dislodge the blockage. How many times have you left it running when not level?

Towing and carrying are two different things. The towing capacity is for a bumper pull based on a stripped truck with no passangers or gear. What is the trailers pin/tongue weight. Add that to the loaded ready to travel weight of the truck. I would suspect you will be way over any SRWs load carrying capacity.

RE: "10 Ram 2500 diesel owners

No Def on that year. They have a dpf system. Great truck as long as no one has deleted it and run it to death.

RE: Ram Truck Owners

Sway peoblem? Poor design? must be something in your setup. Have never heard of any issues with Rams. Maybe if you were to post more information on your setup someone would offer some advise.

RE: Best highway from I-5 to Sisters, Oregon?

I still say 20. I live in Bend and have been driving from PDX to Central Oregon for 30 years. 20............! 26 over MtHood to Sisters 3hours. I5/22 thru Salem to Sisters 4+ hours. Your choice.

RE: Best highway from I-5 to Sisters, Oregon?

22 out of Salem. I have taken our 28 foot motorhome that route many times. Much more senic than 26, and you don't have to deal with the traffic from I5 through Sandy Or! Yea, instead you have to deal with the horrendous traffic on I205 and I5.

RE: Best highway from I-5 to Sisters, Oregon?

22 out of Salem. Honestly IMHO you would be better off taking 26 over Mt Hood, 97 to Redmond and backtrack the 25 or so miles to Sisters. Easier climb over MtHood. 22 out of Salem is a long climb. BTW 22 and 20 join up near the summit.

RE: Can I tow this TT?

Yup, your overloaded long before you even load the trailer. Those numbers cited for the trailers are probably brochure dry weights. Adding things like battery, propane, water, food, pots and pans, clothes can all add to tongue weight. Start looking at trailers like Rpods, Aliners, large tent trailers if you want to tow happy.

RE: Goodyear G614 tire longevity experience?

That the same age my Michelins are, and they will go next spring.

RE: tv question

Best buy, walmart, or any local electronics store, pick the one you like picture quality best on. Check the power brick to see what output power is. If its 12 VDC, simply cut the cord after the brick and wire up a cigarette adapter and plug it in. Now you have a 12 volt tv.

RE: brakes for a tahoe

If I remember correctly unless the key is in run position you wont. But under the hood fuse panel on drivers side there is a dummy fuse. Position two I think. Also you need to verify that there is actually power to the fuse. On some GM vehicles the power wire is not connected.

RE: 2002 Tahoe

Borderline. Had a 2002 Tahoe and it pulled our Arctic Fox 19B OK. At least on the flat lands. In the hills it was pedal to the metal to maintain 45.

RE: 120 Volt receptacles in Motorhome

Using a volt meter starting closest to the breakers chevk voltage at each outlet until you find the first dead one. Open it up and look. Likely you will find a loose or disconneted wire

RE: Replacement mattress

This has to be the second most asked question on the forums. If it is a standard mattress size, go to your favorite local mattress store and start trying them out. Pick the one you like best. Have it delivered and your old one hauled away.

RE: Best way to level when the jacks don't work

2X6 blocks about 12 inches long. Cheap and effective.
