trailertiresandwheels.com ask for Scott X2 X3 Rusty x 5 I ordered from trailer tires and wheels. Told Rusty I wanted fresh tires. Had 5 sets of LT's delivered of the next size up with rims to a campground. Tires were less than 3 months old. Mounted, balanced and stainless steel stems all aired to exactly 80 pounds when delivered. X either 4. ,or 5 or 6... Looks like we missed a number.. BUT you get the idea, call Scott and you won't regret it.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

For the life of me , I cannot figure out why anyone would come onto this , or any other RV related forum asking for medical assistance with those types of symptoms . . ?????????????????????????????????????????????

RE: Disc Brakes

I got mine from Ron Russell with Performance Trailer Braking, and like stated many times... I will never have another fifth wheel without them... Ron also has rolling install crews... Depending on how fast you want it done , and where you are, they will come to you and do the complete install.. VERY HAPPY CAMPER !! By the way , if you also want to upgrade to 17.5 wheels and tires , he does those also ... Joe

RE: Key West

I am considering driving from New York to Key West. Any advice? Also, any campgrounds suggestion would be appreciated. depends on what you want to do , or see on the way... most direct would be 95 south from NY City ,if that is the area you are in.. or 81 south if your farther west... Hit Key West in the search box and see all the threads... there are many good campgrounds down there , and all kinds of amenities... We have stayed at Blue Water Key and loved it , others really like Jolly Rodger...

RE: Online wholesale RV dealers - any experiences?

When I was scouting my recent purchase , I got all my numbers online and in person... When it was time to buy , I reached out to the manufactures representative and told him what I did , and that I was ready to buy. He then contacted my local dealer and said I was in fact ready , and told him the price I was quoted online... They matched it , with some help from the manufacturer . . The dealers and manufacturers have room to work with one and other . . After thinking about it , they beat the price , because the money I would have had to pay to drive 800 miles 1 way to get the unit was all saved..

RE: 4x4 vs 2x4

IF my tow vehicle did not double as my plow truck , it might only be a 4X2 . . Never needed 4X4 towing , but I guess its nice to have it if needed over needing it and not having it . . Well every once in a while mother nature throws you a curve! We had spent a beautiful four days on the Oregon Coast the first week of January. We had a couple days of sunshine and a couple days of rain temps in the mid 40's. Then it came time to head home, temps dropped to very low 30's and then it came! http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z467/rhagfo/1986_King_of_the_Road/GEDC0329.jpg width=640 This is VERY true Russ ,anything can happen at anytime.. At this point we are weekend warriors and the trailer is put to bed in late October , and usually we wake her around mid-late April. We have had WAY TOO MANY cold winters here in the North East to chance leaving it un-winterized..

RE: Lost a wheel

The outer wheel bearing appears to still be on the spindle minus the bearing nut???? That would have to be the inner not the outer . .I would expect that the seal is still there also , just on the other side of that bearing.

RE: 2016 Hershey RV Show

Sales people were not pests for a change. That's probably because they had a very large pool of potential customers and didn't want to waste time trying to sell you something. ^^^ This is correct , There is so much business to be made at that show ,they don't want to waste their time with a window shopper... Been there , done that . . That's one of the reasons we like the show so much!

RE: I-90 in New York

Now you know why I watch the planning software for tolls and toll roads. I always look up the tolls when we are planning. If you are going east/west in New York, try to find the Southern Tier road. Obviously, if you have such a big rig, you must be RICH and you should pay your fair share..... Matt I hope that was a joke------ just because one has a newer/larger RV than the other , that does not make them rich , or better.... I see some of these signs at RV shows , get a 240 month loan... anyone can buy anything , and not be better than the rest

RE: I-90 in New York

Well then , you may also want to put the George Washington Bridge , and the Verrizano Bridge on the list of over priced NY stuff... You will be shocked when you get that bill

RE: Slide out topper should I install or not

You will find many opinions on this... Usually the ones that have them love them , and the ones that don't , say they are not needed. . I am in the yes camp, have had them on my last several trailers , after not having them on my first several . .I , myself see a difference and would not go without them . . pros - They keep the top of the slides free of debris , and some say they keep the inside cooler... Some also say they keep the roof dry, when retracting the slides, they lessen the chance of water in the camper... I don't see this , IF your trailers slide wipers are there and working , you should not get any water Cons - Some report flapping in the wind , and making noise Another item to clean and maintain The cost of doing them

RE: Use of Cones While in RV Park or Campground

I would surround your site with orange cones . . . At least it would give us all something to laugh about ! On a serious note , I would trade the cones for triangles , they would take up less space and be just as effective.. BUT, if you want cones for the road ,that's fine also. You should not have to use them in the campground , in all my years of camping , I have not seen the need for them on my site. Happy Camping . .

RE: Max speed towing.

I guess I grew up as I was in the 75-80 camp, now I am 65 ... UNLESS I need to get away from something, or get hung out in the sandwich lane, then I will jump it up to get into the granny lane again... My wife is much happier now , which also means I am much happier now :W I am running the GY G114's ( 17.5" )

RE: Bubbled up roofs on the hwy

we had someone over on the Redwood forum that this happened to.. His wife used to follow him in another vehicle , that is how they found it.. I placed a 6" strip of Eternabond over the area where the front cap meets the roofline. . Hopefully this will do 2 things - protect against a leak . . Protect against a bubble up issue..
