RE: Shiny RV with Red Max Pro (pics)

I'll just say that I think the prep use the most important part of the process, and it's best to get all of the oxidation and previous wax off. That said, I'll also say I didn't use the tsp, but did go over the whole thing with bar keepers friend and rinse it well. You could try it, but it may not adhere correctly, or look as good. Maybe try a small section somewhere and see what happens?

RE: Running generators in truck bed while hitched.

Hey, better late than never, Fxfymn! Thanks for the reply. That's an interesting idea I hadn't even considered. That might be workable. Thanks, and thanks again to all who responded.

RE: update to earlier thread got my new tires

Just as with any tire, keep them at the right pressure, cover them when not moving for extended periods, watch your speed, and don't overload. Should last many years, but they're not bulletproof.

RE: Million Dollar Highway today (Sept 22)

Glad you enjoyed towing it. I agree, and enjoyed it immensely. Not everyone feels that way. :) Too bad the weather turned ugly for you.

RE: THE HORROR . .. .. . THE HORROR. ... . . THE HORROR

Meh, learn to live with it. You'll get adjusted to how long you can go before it fills up completely. They're notorious for that. BTW, welcome to the forum!

RE: Flogged to death but require info on tires

Actually I saw that and tried to link it here. You're right, can't say that anymore! A little suspect, and odd that he went right back to more Carlisle's, but there it is in black and white. Guess we'll see, huh Huntindog? :) Glad we're both happy with what we've got! Happy trails!

RE: Flogged to death but require info on tires

The Carlisle Radial Trail RH have been out since early '13. This from their new home page; ""Launched in early 2013, the Carlisle Radial Trail RH Radial Trailer Tire for Toy Haulers, Boat Trailers, Cargo Trailers, Utility Trailers, Stock Trailers and other towable applications. The new and improved second generation Radial Trail RH combines two new Carlisle technologies."" ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, The Carlise RH HD came out around Jan- Feb of 2016. There is another thread on this running right now at the top. This is the tire that is supposed to be be all end all. The Radial Trail RH is the one that came out in 2013, per JIMNLIN's post. That is the one that I and others have been running (mine for 18 months) and all reports I've seen have been positive. The Radial Trail HD is the supposedly improved version that came out more recently, possibly Jan or Feb of this year. The website (here) doesn't specify, but I think it's too early to tell the reliability of that one. Reports thus far have been favorable, as far as I've seen. Not sure about the "be all end all", but time will tell.

"" IMO these type remarks serve no purpose other than bash some with a differing opinion. Thanks for posting the Carlisle information. Current, accurate information is valuable. As for your second statement, it reminds me of the boy who was asked why he was fighting with his schoolmate: "it all started when he hit me back". :) Have a good day!

RE: Flogged to death but require info on tires

Wow, lots of old information being tossed around here. 2006? Low speed ratings? How many threads have you seen recently about "China bombs"? Except for the brother of my uncle's girlfriend on her mother's side had a blowout 8 years ago. Used to be on here all the time. Carlisle has improved their design already over one that I've yet to see a bad review about. Higher speed ratings too. I don't care what tires anyone runs. As was stated, it's your money. But at least base your argument on information from the current decade.

RE: Flogged to death but require info on tires

As usual, whenever this topic comes up... An ST fan will make all sorts of excuses as to why ST tires fail, such as curbing, over speeding, under inflating, the sky is blue etc.. Then smugly proclaim that those who had ST tire failures simply did not understand the limitations of the ST tire design... And that when used within their limitations they will give good service. To that I say that many of us DO understand the ST tires limitations. We DO understand the much lower testing standards for the ST tires, and we find those limitations.......... Well, limiting. And just as predictably, LT folks will come along and smugly and condescendingly explain that anyone who uses ST's really doesn't understand, is kind of simple minded and easily duped, and doesn't mind throwing their money away on an inferior product, totally dismissing the miles collectively towed without issue. Apparently, one can only really understand (wink, wink) the issue if they're using LT's. Once again, research and use what YOU'RE comfortable with. :)

RE: Replacing an Analog Thermostat with a Digital

Got mine at Walmart for around 20 bucks. Just a regular household one. Nope Regular house thermostat's run off 24VAC, they will not run off 12 VDC, period. It must be a battery powered "house" type. Yes, that's correct. I should have specified that.

RE: Flogged to death but require info on tires

There are some who insist that LT's are the only way to go. There are others, myself included, who have had no problems at all with ST's. Newer designs of ST's allows for greater speeds, which was one argument for the LT's. Do some research and decide for yourself based on your situation. Lots of info here.

RE: Replacing an Analog Thermostat with a Digital

Here is the information I used when I did mine several years ago. (credit to Les Adams, a long timer here on the forum who is no longer active) BTW, welcome to the forum!

RE: Pulling thru Gatlinburg

No matter which way you go, you should be fine, except for the traffic. These are tourist areas, with thousands of rv's big and small traveling these roads. They're navigable, guaranteed.
