RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

My Rant: I came in here or posted this thread looking for help from the RV community that are members of this forum. Unwittly, as was brought to my attention in a private message I touched on a hot spot. Unfortunately that doesn't jusitify the attachs,tough guy attitudes,and/or general wise-ass remarks towards someone asking for help. I'd understand this somewhat if your dealing with a member whom which you already have history with, but towards someone who is inquirying and looking for help with whom you've never delt with before is just plain wrong and uncalled for. It got me to thinking, if you were in your favorite campground and somebody from another site came over to you and starting asking questions about tires, tow vehicals or whatever would you display the same attitude? I think not, and if you did than you have other issues. Most people that I've run into in the camping world go out of there way to help you. This is not bothering me because I have thin skin or I can't take it, I can go toe to toe with anybody in an argument and hold my own, I just choose not to, I'd rather help. Okay off my soap box...........got to run I've got some brandy new ST's coming in from China Well said. Thank you! And you are quite the funny man.

RE: Backup camera on top-rear of 5th-wheel - any help?

Where do you all have your cameras mounted? Top center, low center, mid center, off to one side? I'm thinking about doing this, and am not sure what the best location would be. Top center.

RE: Backup camera on top-rear of 5th-wheel - any help?

We mounted a camera on our fifth wheel and find it useful going down the road and seeing what's immediately behind when backing, but I still help DH out because the camera can't see all the way around or up. If DW can't help you, use it but back up slowly, get out, survey, back up more, get out and survey, and repeat the process till you're safely where you want to be.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

Not having read every reply, and not discounting the tire theory, when my trailer was new I had 3 blow outs within the first two years. Same tire, rear axle, passenger side. Now after three brand new tires, I started to check the temperature of the rims/tires after traveling 2-3 hours. The right rear was always substantially hotter than the other three. Re-packed the wheel bearings, same outcome. Went back to my dealer and he got me a whole new axle assembly with brakes under warranty. Have never had a blowout in the last five years. It's not always the tires!! Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Low-carb ideas?

The longer you stick to a grain and sugar free diet, eating only whole foods from nature as in Paleo, the more you will be satisfied with smaller amounts. It happens naturally.\ I couldn't disagree more. When you cut entire food groups from your diet, you eventually crave them. You feel deprived. And its hard to deal with eating in a restaurant. Carbs are cheap for a restaurant. As I said, if you simply stop eating whatever you're eating when you are no longer hungry, instead of stopping when you're full, you will lose weight. That doesn't work for me. Cutting out the grains, which create sugars in your system, and refined sugars, eventually eliminates the cravings. I supplement by making grain and sugar free baked goods - coconut or almond flour and using honey. There are lots of great recipes online for chocolate cake, cookies, lemon bars, banana cream cake, you name it, and it's satisfying. I've lost quite a bit of weight this way. I think the truest answer is to know how YOU eat. There are sooooooo many different food ideas out there. Pick the one that makes the most sense to you and as they say: Just do it. Exactly. A friend eats grains and sugars but watches calories and that works for her, but if I do the same, I maintain or gain.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

Most people having tire problems are , over loaded, tires under inflated, tires are too old or they are driving too fast. Many ST tires have a max speed of 65 mph stamped on them. I try to stay at about 60mph when towing. I run the max tire pressure stamped on the tires. Two years ago I switched to Maxxis 8008 radial ST tires and have been pleased with them. Towed our 5er from south Florida to western Colorado, then to Utah, Arizona and back home with zero tire problems. People towing too fast with under inflated tires seem to have the most problems. Good advice.

RE: Blowing tires on 5th wheel

I can't believe you've been here 7 years and don't have a clue about tires. Guess you've been under a rock or something. If you're searching for alignment threads, search instead for "ST tires" and "LT tires" and "china bombs". And from those threads found you will find other search terms. You are not alone, and the answer is out there. Meanwhile tell us what tire brand, model, and size you are running. And tell us how much your trailer weighs loaded and ready for camping. Yes I've been a member for 7 years but have not participated mainly because of all the wise ass answers you get when your looking for help. Tires are Electra 235/85 R16 HLT load rating E. I suspect its the proper tire,no? Pressure is 80psi as rated trailer weight is approximately 12,000 :) - this is the best I can do for a "Like".

RE: Fifth Wheel Hitch

Depends on how tight you plan to be turning. When we had our short bed pickup, we had the Hensley BD3 hitch on a slider and never used it. We upgraded our short bed SRW PU to a DRW long bed and sent the slider back.

RE: Bryce or Zion first? Which has less to walk?

Why pick, they're fairly close together so go to both! Don't forget that I suggested Cedar Breaks, in between the other two.

I'm staying out of this one, but you can read my signature TV and 5W.

RE: Bryce or Zion first? Which has less to walk?

We too have been to both and everything everyone has said is right, but you could easily enjoy both from the shuttles offered. When you feel better, go back and take some of the hikes - through Wall Street in Bryce and down around the Queen's trail. In Zion, the Upper Emerald Pool's trail. We didn't do Angel's Landing as it was a little too scary for me. But, a good tour of both on the buses is not to be missed and while you're in the vicinity go to Cedar Break's National Monument in between the two. Again, it's a drive an view from above. My husband and I do a lot of driving through type of touring because of our dogs that travel with us. When we've taken the trails such as these, we've boarded them for the day, but otherwise we do the drive and tour thing. On the other side of Bryce towards Panguitch is another side of Bryce that is beautiful with a very short comfortable trail you can take with your back. My husband has back problems so we take it easy.

RE: Amazon Same Day Delivery

We have Amazon Prime. It's same day shipping if it's something they provide, but not if it's a 3rd party.

RE: The good about GS RSA

We called GS RSA en route for the nearest location to get a new spare for our truck. They gave us information, went straight to the shop and replaced the spare.

RE: New Fifth Wheel

Have been full timing for 3 years in our Montana and have not had a single problem! There are quality products out there. Same for our Bighorn, except for a cabinet hinge.

RE: New Fifth Wheel

Our local news has a consumer hotline and they air stories like this and get resolution. Also, Good Sam Highways magazine has a consumer hotline you can write in and they will help you with consumer issues like this. This may be too big for them to handle but the exposure would help, if you don't get satisfaction.
