RE: Road trip and two blow outs on Goodyear Marathons

How fast were you driving and was the trailer overloaded? Marathons are rated for 65mph. If you drive faster and are heavy they heat up. That said perhaps one of them may have been defective but two? I just replaced all four shoes with the Good Year Endurance. Load range E speed rated 80 mph. Just came back from a trip and they are designed to run cooler and they were as I checked them at fill ups and when I stopped. Blowouts could be from multiple causes. Debris in the road, underinflation, driving to fast, to heavy or overloaded. PS I had two sets of Marathons on my prior TT and never had an issue other than I wore them out. I liked the tire. I would have put than on this TT but they offered a upgraded version the Endurance, so thats what I did. The cost difference was negligible.

Hurricane Irma

Anyone looking at the future track of Irma? Was thinking about heading out to the northeast coast late next week, but now will watch and see. Alot of future tracks look like its gonna head into the southeast to mid Atlantic and continue northward.....

RE: At the CG do you mainly use the CG showers or your RV's?

RE: What's the WORST Experience You ever had at a RV/Camp site?

While camping in Plymouth last summer, this group of two units, setup a table on the one site. During the day they got plastered, loud screaming cursing. It was all about them and they couldnt care less about anyone around them. A couple summers ago while camping on the beach same thing different place. Seems like CG's need to have a prty section where these people can let loose, and another section for the rest of us who have matured past that. I like my solo cup to, but I dont intrude on my neighbors airspace

RE: BBQ for RV

I only bbq with a weber virtual bullet, the smokey joe using charcoal and wood chunks. I have the 18" model but they now make a 14" one. Its charcoal, but its not dirty as after I'm done I just place it in 2 garbage bags. Just made a 7.5 lb pork but. You can also smoke with a regular weber charcoal grill by placing coals to one side. Just my preference but will state that it does add another layer of flavor over gas.

RE: Generator experience Honda EU2000i&EU2000ic vs. EU3000is

I bought the 3000i 13 years ago. My reason was that I would set up and leave my wife and daughter while I went to work. She wasnt going to pull start one 2000 then the other if she needed the power. The key start on the 3000, plus larger fuel tank and having all the amps needed in one package was an easy decision. The 3000i also can be wired with a remote start, so you need not go out to get it going. We dry camp as much as wet, and before we put our solar up, I would get 5 days out of the tank just to charge the batteries.It is larger and heavier but sounds like your going to set it up in a box, so that shouldnt be a concern. Lastly two stock 2000 will not run as long as one 3000 on fuel.

RE: What truck is needed to tow TT weighing 10k lbs.

We have a 2015 F250 with the 6.2L V8 and a 6 speed transmission. The 6 speed is the key....Ill never have a 3 speed again. Our prior TV a 2001 3/4 ton Suburban with a big 8.1L v8 and 3 speed, had to work some much harder than this 6.2. Its all in the gearing

RE: Salisbury State Beach Reservation

Thanks for the input. I looked up check in 1 pm. Good to know. Seems fairly safe and fun and being close to NH as well as Gloucester Newbury Port etc, might be options as well.

RE: This site caused and saved me some stress..Thanks!

Wonderful!. I was where you are about 14 years ago and found this site. Dealers will sell anything to anyone. Glad you saw the light and did research here. Guaranteed someone here has made the mistake or effected a repair that will save you lots of hassles. It has saved me, and I have passed my wisdom onto others. Now as its your turn, pay it forward with what you learn. Happy Trails

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

Please look me up in 13 years and let me know if its still running. My Honda 3000i is on its 13th year and other than one spark plug and annual oil changes no other work has ever been done. You get what you pay for and some how I doubt that I will hear from you. In addition I can sell my 3000i now for not much less than I paid for it. It always mystifies me that we have 40-50k in a tv plus that in a rig, then folks go blind when it comes to generators. Two years a go the park ranger to tell my neighbor to turn off his loud clunker, thankfully. My honda was running as well, they never heard it.... Happy Trails

RE: 4 wheel drive class c

There is a company called Quigly(sp) that does conversions. Buy a C and have them 4wd it. I have seen a couple of class c's drive down the beach. Looks very interesting to me as well..

RE: Anyone Purchase an RV Used instead of New?

We have only bought used so far as you save 20-30-50% or more. You just need to be thorough in your inspection and to also run up all the systems before you sign off on it. New is very seductive especially the no money down financing, but you lose tons of money in interest payments and depreciation. So for us anyway it will always be used. This is our second purchase so far so good!

RE: 8 ft v 6ft

We went for the 6' as my wife drives the TV full time. The 8ft bed is bus it just doesnt turn making daily use and parking a chore. So it all depends on the most use of the vehicle. We spend around 30 nights in the TT. If we retire and travel more that might change as 8ft bed with a longer wheeelbase would be more comfortable on long tows.

RE: WOOHOO!! New Batteries!

x2, x2 x2..... I have the T125's. When I sold my TT in 2015 the 2 T125's were 10 years old and still going strong, so it wasnt even a thought to place two T125s in the new to us TT. Ive heard Im to cheap before but if you amortize it at the 10 year level is $20/year! These batts are the BEAST and I need to weigh my tongue to see if I can put two more up there. I also have 428 watts solar. Morningstar pwm45 & charge wizard on house charger. Great Battery!!

RE: Run Solar Circuit and Shore Power at the same time?

I have a Morning Star PWM 45 connected up to 428 watts full time. I also connect to shore power. It was explained to me that the morning star is a battery charger and when connected up to shore power and charging, the Morning Star will sense that and throttle back to nothing going to the batteries and that its one way, meaning no power goes back up to the panels.

RE: Power outage OBX

Its a pity that the utility doesn't have a repair team connecting in a temporary splice until the proper repair is performed. Living in a tourist community myself, not only are vacationers losing but so are the business owners. In my town you need to make 12 months of money in under 6 months. Everyone is losing big time.
