Topic: Getting ready to pick up our new TT.

Posted By: jmkms124 on 09/25/10 03:32pm

Just got done installing a new Tekonsha P3 Brake controller in our Yukon because we have an appointment next Saturday to pick up our new travel trailer. My wife & I just purchased a Bullet Premier 29REPR with BlackBerry Interior & Full Body Paint.

I'm extremely excited, can't wait.

I would replace any tire that has China stamped on it.

Looks NICE!!! Is it new? If so, I think I would ride the rubber you have for this season (are you planning to use it this winter?).

My Jayco came with Marathons on it and after almost 10,000 they look good. I have no idea just how much life we should expect from our tires but as a saftey precaution I check the tire temps every time we stop. I picked up a handheld laser thermometer from Harbor Freight for $30 just after we got our TT. It picked up a TV brake rotor that was getting hot in time to save it - worth every dime.

I have been told to change them at 5 years - but with the road miles we put on the TT, it will be much sooner for us.
