RE: Poor, poor, pitiful me

There are many rewards in having five adult children (with spouses), eight grandchildren, and various elderly relatives but they can sure interfere with the RV'ing plans. The young ones keep graduating from this and that, getting married, and having babies. The older ones have major birthdays,and operations. I am truly thankful that we are all in good health and able to enjoy our times together but gosh darn it, I wanted to go to Alaska! Do I need a kick in the pants for being an ungrateful slob or will someone commiserate with me? lizzie An old song comes to mind: MAMAS & PAPAS Go where you wanna go https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzG-BP6RYko

RE: F350, 3500HD, or RAM 3500?

Be careful picking the color. I see some horrible color combinations going down the road.

RE: Getting to grease zerk

Dexter used to have a list of compatible grease. Most any name brand EP-2 grease will be fine.

RE: Getting to grease zerk

I'd pull the wheel and see if there is a Zerk before I drilled.

RE: tire pressure

I've had good luck running max PSI in various trailer tires. I like this tidbit on rims from the Carlisle site: "What is the maximum psi limitation for your trailer wheels? Max air capacities are typically a function of the tire, not the wheel. Unlike tires, the load rating of a wheel is not generally dependent on the operating pressure. The wheels themselves are manufactured and tested to a load rating (without consideration of pressure) and can safely support that load. As long as the load is within the limits of our wheel's load rating in pounds, our product will perform as expected."

RE: Towing above 65

Currently out camping and on the way up I was getting past left and right by rv's. If you have a proper truck and change your trailer tires to LTs. Can trailers be safely towed in the 70 mph range. Thanks Yes they can........ :C Sorry for the delay getting back to you.

Some seem intent on closing this thread. Why??

RE: Grease Seals TruRyde vs SKF

Have you done this before? Not questioning your expertise, but I've gotten the impression here that improperly done maintenance has caused more problems than natural wear and tear. 1 year and 2,000 miles is very little use. Good luck.

RE: A Three Point Turn with a Trailer

Just remember when you are backing up you are required to yield to oncoming traffic. If there is an accident, it won't go well for you (buttheads not withstanding). Hard to yield when you have the entire road blocked, and won't be out of the way until the whole thing is in the driveway. then they can have it all. I don't mind waiting, I feel bad for those that just can't back.

RE: 'Another' Class A Fire from blown tire?

Within the past week, a couple from Lawrence, KS was killed in Illinois when their Class A caught fire after a blown tire. The local news was a little sketchy on the details except to say a blown tire caused the fire. The pic that was on the news showed the motor home was totally destroyed. That story was very tragic and really got close to home. The DW and i shared many stories and campfires with them. They were just super nice people who was a lot of fun to be around. We had known them for the last 3 years and always camped next to them when camping at Clinton State Park. There site was right in the middle of the park and we always reserved the site next to them. It really blew me away when i found out. Very sad story. http://www.bnd.com/2015/04/20/3775116_two-killed-in-fiery-crash-on-i.html?rh=1

RE: question for the experts

I have used jumper cables to the jack when I had removed the trailer batteries.

RE: Tire blow out trailer

Glad the STR's are included since I'm using a set :C "However Goodyear Marathon and Power King Towmax STR tires featuring the ST size designation may be used at speeds between 66 and 75 mph (106 and 121 km/h) by increasing their cold inflation pressure by 10 psi (69 kPa) above the recommended pressure for the rated maximum load." "Do not exceed the wheel's maximum rated pressure. If the maximum pressure for the wheel prohibits the increase of air pressure, then maximum speed must be restricted to 65 mph (104 km/h). The cold inflation pressure must not exceed 10 psi (69 kPa) beyond the inflation specified for the maximum load of the tire." "Increasing the inflation pressure by 10 psi (69 kPa) does not provide any additional load carrying capacity."

RE: Towing above 65

Evidence so far suggests: Driver 1 made a bad pass, while Driver 2 kept on trucken'.

RE: Towing above 65

For those that don't know, Whitebird Hill has several runaway ramps and a very bad reputation among Truckers. I could post several trucking accidents on that hill just in the last 6 months. It's a Truckers nightmare, especially in the winter and why this particular trucker was getting a run at the hill when the travel trailer was trying to pass. We haven't seen the full report yet, but starting to get an idea of the circumstances.

RE: Towing above 65

The ISP accident report must be done by now. The case may even be in the trial stage. The official report should be here soon.

RE: What are your "GO TO" seasonings?

Pepper, garlic, and anything else that doesn't contain salt.

RE: Towing above 65

Looks like a no-pass double yellow. Apparently the final report is available. http://www.isp.idaho.gov/patrol/crash_report.html

RE: A Three Point Turn with a Trailer

If possible, practice in a parking lot during off hours. Also longer trailers are easier to back than short ones.
