Do RV tires deteriorate when sitting on dealer lots.

I bought a four year old used 5th wheel and had a blowout on my first run. Suspecting that it might be lot rot in the tires, I changed the whole set even though the treads looked new on them. The entire tread on the blowout tire separated from the sidewall and took out the trailer fender. It's my belief that when an RV is sitting in a lot for a year or more in one spot, all that weight on one small portion of the tires undermines the inner core. Watchatink?

RE: Curt 5th wheel adapter

I have a Champion adapter on mine and would buy it again. It clamps onto the ball itself. I love the way the jaws lock on. Very easy to hook up.

That's the greenest grass in the CG.

RE: scranton pa to el paso, tx

I am looking into the suggested routes and they look very promising. Thanks for the help.

RE: scranton pa to el paso, tx

Great responses here. Thanks. I will definitely reconsider the secondary roads.

RE: scranton pa to el paso, tx

We realize Interstates are viable and necessary at times, but we would like to find some alternate scenic routes in West Virginia and Kentucky that we can include in our trip. Thanks.

scranton pa to el paso, tx

We thought we would go a different way to Texas this October. We need a route through West Virginia and Kentucky that needn't include the interstates and that is scenic and safe.

Algodones, Mx dentist

We'll be staying in Yuma, AZ for the winter because we need extensive dental work. We would like a recommendation for a dentist for new dentures. We were quoted $50,000 where we live and don't have that kind of money available.

RE: Screen rooms

We bought a carefree screen room that connects to our awning. It works great except for heavy winds. When wind speed gets up 25 mph we have to take the screen down, which is a hassle. Staking them down in sandy soil is a bit unstable.

el paso

Anyone stay in El paso for the winter. We know it gets a little chilly in the dead of winter, but there's no humidity to speak of and few mosquitoes. We stayed in Port Isabel last winter and between the high winds, humidity and rain, we're opting for the desert this time. We tried Florida and the bug situation is worse than south Texas. The ocean is nice, but we don't need to be near it for the entire winter.

mini-split a/c

Has anyone installed a MINI-SPLIT INVERTER AIR CONDITIONER/heat pump in their RV yet? They seem way more efficient (cheaper to run) than conventional a/c units, especially for a full timer. They are a lot more quieter and can be controlled by a remote.

RE: Why do Cameos sit on the dealer's lots for so long?

I traded in a 2006 Holiday Rambler back in 2011 and the trailer was still on the lot until early this year.

utah national parks

I remember back in the 90's dry camping in the pullouts in the National parks in Utah. I never had a problem for quick overnights between sights like Bryce and Arches. Has anyone done this lately?

RE: Fifth wheel hitch question

What ever you put in the front of the trailer and into the truck, ads weight to the hitch copacity. Think verticle weight pressing downward.

RE: Should I tow this? ?

As long as you stay within the manufacturers guidelines, there should be no need to worry. I agree that you're MPG will add up to poop, but it's far cheaper to keep her than to lose thousands trading in for a diesel.

RE: 5th Wheel Hitch Advice

most of the newer trailers are designed for short beds with plenty of clearance. Ask your dealer if that is the case with the trailer you plan to pull.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch question

considering that bedroom closet is directly over the hitch, front storage underneath trailer is more added weight and everything you might put inside the truck bed and passengers riding along with you, you could very well go over your maximum. Get a heavier duty hitch so you won't have that worry.

RE: Bypass NYC

I drove a taxi in NYC for a number of years. 95 is shorter by far, but you will have more tolls which are doubled with four axles. If that isn't an issue, then consider leaving early on Sunday. No construction on Sundays, since no one wants to pay the double time. If you get into the city, and y es, even the Cross Bronx, early around 8am, you will sail through. Otherwise, the 84/81 option is a good choice.

South Dakota

Part of our spring ride home from Tx is between Mount Rushmore to Mall of America. We are looking for a popular and scenic destination between the two.

mall of America parking

Do they have parking for Rv's at Mall of America? We/re not looking for an overnight, just a spot for a half day of shopping on our way home from our winter digs farther south.
