RE: TowMax Tires

Report the failures. Those things should be illegal. They're like the demo batteries in kids toys...just enough to get you home then get real batteries.

RE: Short 5th wheel

You might want to also consider used. You'll have more options from arctic fox and others. We do exactly the same kind of camping and will want a similar sized unit in a few years.

RE: Yamaha 2400 isHC powering RVP Air Conditioner

Something doesn't sound right. I can run my ac and microwave at the same time with my 2400.

RE: Trailer tire ratings?

St tires may be cheaper but st tire markers recommend replacing them after only 3 years. Lt tires can go twice that long so I would argue you pay more for st tires over the life of your rv. Oh and lt tires are superior...review the dot testing requirements. I think of st tires like demo batteries that come in toys. Just enough to get you to buy them.

RE: 4th July Trips?

Wild plum usfs campground in the Gold Lakes Basin area near Sierra City, Ca. Small campground that will likely fill up on the weekend but shouldn't be too bad. We go every year for the 4th. Nearby Downeiville has a great small town 4th parade and festival . They close highway 49 and the parade goes one way then turns around and goes by the other way.

RE: Double Towing with my rig (pics updated 5-13-2014)

How can you get a citation for no log book in a non-commercial vehicle? x2

RE: Double Towing with my rig (pics updated 5-13-2014)

I don't see the issue with ca and double towing. Go to dmv and take the written test and take a driving test with your fifth wheel or trailer to get a class a license with doubles endorsement. My brother in law got one and tows a boat behind his travel trailer. Sounds like you just need to practice parallel parking your trailer.

RE: Looking for a great campground near Mt. Shasta (CA)

At Siskiyou there are 2 rv loops and personally I like the one that is farther away from the lake. It has private sites like a real campground and not a rv park. The lower one is a large gravel area with sites around the outside but no real privacy between the sites. jmho.

RE: Looking for a great campground near Mt. Shasta (CA)

X2 on Lake Siskiyou. Great place for kids. Also check out the nearby fish hatchery and museum.

RE: ST vs LT Tires -- I'm confused

I think people need to read the thread on testing requirements by the dot. St testing is less stringent. St are simply updated as our tire engineers stated due to their "occasional non passenger usage." And they are designed for local service. So if you don't tow much or far than st might work for you.

RE: Had our first major tire issue

OMG! ....Lots of hysteria about ST tires...FWIW ... been running ST tires pertnear 40 years and so far not single blow out. Have had 2 tires torn up becuz of fender support failures but nary a Kapow. :C How many years have st tires been around?

RE: Gas milage for a diesel / gas engine

7,500 lb fiver 2000 f250 with 5.4 l v8 <9 towing and usually 10-14 empty. 2010 gmc with duramax 11-12 towing and 14-20 empty. So towing mileage will be about 50% better and diesel is cheaper than gas again but who knows if that will last. But i don't think it is really a apples to apples comparison...the power of the diesel is amazing and i would have to slow down to compare my mileage.

RE: Towing with Full Water Tank?

Always full here. That's what the tank is for.

RE: Power king tires

Wow a detailed survey! I wished they would have had a question to separate st from lt failure rates on towables.

RE: Have you ever seen someone checking tire pressures?

I check mine before every trip and before i drive again or come home. Now with lt tires it is just a check and i can go the whole season with adding air. Not true with my st tires...i had to add air every trip.

RE: Strange tire problem - can't find info

Hopefully you can get some money from the toxmax warranty and get some better tires so you can be truely be happy. What size are the tires? what loading rating for the tires and axles?

RE: need tire advice

But you see, I did not build the box. Until the DOT finds reasons to pull the DOT certifications from the ST tire industry the box is self imposed by the regulatory people and the ST tire manufacturers. The vehicle manufacturers, in most cases, are just using what's available. There are tires for the smallest diameter all the way to the 16" tires with LRF certifications at 3960# covering all axles thru 7000#. There is no valid excuse for using replacement tires deemed as misapplications for ST tires. FastEagle Fe so would you also say st trailers would be a misapplication on a trailer where the manufacturer specified lt or p tires on the placard?

RE: need tire advice

So the Carlisle trail rh tires are the next best thing in st tires? Limited to 62 mph... sounds like progress. I wonder how long it will be until we see st tires rated in increments less than 1 mph...59.5 or 60.5 mph. Maybe they will give a max temp rating the tires can be driven in too.
