As we were preparing our trailer for the upcoming weekend I was checking the tires (on both it and my TV). I noticed that the GAWR per the label on the side of the trailer is 3500# @ 50psi. On the side of the tires it says "tire load 1760# @ 50psi" and the rims say 1870# (they are the white, I assume steel, rims). Tires on the trailer are 205/75R14C. I know that they were made in June '08 and will probably need to be replaced in the next year or so, but as of now they look really good in terms of no cracks, etc. My question is the 3500# noted on the GAWR. Am I to assume that that can be divided between the 2 tires on each axle (we have 2 axles) thus 1750# per tire is a minimum? If that is the case would you suggest when we replace them get something with a little more wiggle room than 10# per side? Also, about the tires, is the "C" at the end the speed/load rating?
Also, when checking the TV tires I was looking for the date code and didn't see it. I assume that it's supposed to be the same (wk/yr) as the TT tires. Both the TV and TT were purchased used within the last year.
Thanks in advance.
I've just gotten this same issue in my 2005 Keystone. It was moist in there this winter... I suspect its from the moisture. I cought it before it got too bad though. Actually, you can't even see it unless you use a flashlight pointed at the spots.
I have no plans to "repair" this issue.
Just noticed last night that I have this problem too. What did you do, if anything (since you said you weren't planning on fixing it)? Any way to keep them from getting worse? Maybe open a vent?
Sorry for the dumb question, but I've been seeing "HTT" on here a lot. Most of the abbreviations I can figure out but what is this one? (Yes, it's probably obvious and I'm over thinking it and will go DUH :Sonce I see it.)
