RE: Rebuilt my tow dolly, need tires

Go with the Maxxis and have them balanced. You can thank me later.

RE: Airbag recall

When the campaign first hit, my TV wasn't on the list; now it is. Guess I'll be calling the dealer tomorrow and set up an appointment.

RE: Fuel stops on Hwy 64 NC

If you're picking up US 64 at Exit 96 off I-85 you won't have a problem finding gas stops between there and the East coast. There are a number of small towns with stations that can handle your rig. Larger cities like Asheboro, Metro Raleigh, Rocky Mount also have stations you can get in and out of. Good luck and have a safe trip.

RE: Overnight parking at Camping World in Fayetteville, NC?

There is a nice CG at exit 61 on I-95, Fayetteville RV Resort, a former KOA.. They have a number of pull through sites near the entrance designed for over night stays. You won't have to worry about disturbing other guests when you pull in at Midnight.

Towing a RAV4 boo boo

I have a friend at a Toyota dealer in Atlanta. A 2001 RAV4 4WD was towed into his dealer with a smoked engine. Seems it was being towed 4 down in 1st gear. Calculating the gear ratios, this resulted in the engine being turned at 9700 RPM at 70 mph! Needless to say, they are installing an engine from a salvage yard as nothing was left of the original engine. Ouch.

RE: Scooter in RV park?

I used one of these on my Kymco. Simple, light, small enough to keep under the seat when not in use. Kyrptonite disc lock

RE: Trailer Tires

I installed a set of 16" Maxxis on my 11,600# Columbus. Mounted and balanced for less than $600. I would have installed Michelin LT Ribs, but could not afford $1300 +. My Maxxis were much heavier than the China bombs they replaced, the sidewalls were much thicker, too. They're made in Thailand, not China. I also ran Maxxis on my Jayco back in 2007, no problems with them, either.

RE: Land cruiser mirror extensions

I used these CIPA mirrors on my Tacoma when towing. They worked well. CIPA universal tow mirrors

RE: headers

...I'll stay with single exhaust, so the x pipe is out Spending money for a nice set of headers, but leaving it single exhaust kind of defeats the purpose. The idea is to get the gasses to flow out with little restriction. Single exhaust is more restrictive than dual exhaust. Suggest going with dual exhaust if you really want to feel and see the benefits of your headers.

Anyone ever call a Standby Sam member?

I've only been a Good Sam member since 2007, but my Dad was a member for many years. I am, and he was a Standby Sam member. For those of you who don't know what Standby Sams are, here's from their web site: The Good Sam Club is about service, helping out our fellow RVer, and that spirit is what fuels our Standby Sams program. Standby Sams are Good Sam members who volunteer to provide emergency advice and referrals to fellow members traveling through their area. This group has helped hundreds of Good Sam members over the years by providing contact information for local campgrounds, mechanics – even a good restaurant! We are pleased to report there are nearly 2,000 Standby Sams throughout the United States and Canada. We have never been called on to help out a fellow RV'er. Has anyone here been called, or has called a Standby Sam member? If so, what was your experience? BTW, Here's their site:Standby Sam Volunteering Directory

RE: Brake pads for Ford E 350

If you were able to get 71,000 miles on the original pads, why not put the same brand back on? Ford made your original pads, put Ford pads back on. If you find something that works, stick with it. Don't go cheap on your brakes.

RE: Bad Trip

I see you're a Good Sam member. Next time you run into bunches of trouble, why not call a Stand By Sam? There's 115 volunteers in North Carolina, including me. Someone local might give you a name & number to a good garage or dealer or might be able to lend a hand. Could save you some troubles. Good luck on your next trip.

RE: Boone to Asheville NC Rt 321 and Rt 64

I recently drove 321 out of Boone through Blowing Rock. In and out of Blowing Rock the road is tight, some construction, narrow in some spots. I was in a car, I wouldn't want to be towing my 37' 5th wheel this way. Once a little past Blowing Rock it was OK, though. I know it's a lot longer, but I would stick to 421 to I-77 South.

RE: Fayetteville RV Resort

Fayetteville RV Resort (formally Wade KOA) is located in NC on I-95 at exit 61. Yes, it is a very nice CG with 2 pools, large sites, and a clean park.

I hope Jake is your dog's name... I have an uncle named Jake, but he's house broken.

RE: Dutchmen tires from factory

What brand of tires did you install?

RE: Holley four barrel carb exchanged for same list # NO!

As mentioned, there is probably an inline filter somewhere you should check. It is also possible for dirt to enter around the air cleaner is improperly installed or a dirty or cheap air filter. This can cause a problem within the carburetor.

RE: Fiver with Bed slide

My previous fiver was a Sabre. We really liked it. Here's a nice floorplan that you may like that is less than 10,000# empty: http://palominorv.com/productinfo.aspx?model=sabresil&page=floorplandetails&floorplanid=5353&RVType=FW

RE: question on tire research

I recently replaced the Akuret ST tires that came on my fiver with Maxxis M8008 ST tires. While in the shop watching the tires mounted and balanced, I rolled 3 ST tires, same size, next to each other. One of my Maxxis, an Akuret, and a Tow Master. All were ST235/80R16 Load Range E. The Maxxis was heavier, its sidewall was thicker and more firm with less flexing when weight was applied. My Maxxis were made in Thailand. The other two were made in China. I replaced the original tires on my fiver because one had a ply separation resulting in a grapefruit size bubble. This was the 3rd time I had a tire failure of an ST tire, all different brands, all made in China. I don't care what the name is on the side of the tire, if it's an ST tire made in China, it is not built to the same quality standards as my Maxxis or the USA made Carlisle ST tires on my Dad's cargo trailer (though they are old and time to be replaced). Best of luck with your tires, regardless of where they're made.
