RE: Have you tried Nexen Roadian AT tires?

Purchased four Nexen Rodain HT tires for our MH from our tire dealer. They are a local family owned shop that deals in a heavy fleet service in the area. They recommended the Roadian HT over the Firestone Transforce HT that provided great service for 5 trouble free years. The original tires were Michelin tires and they were full of sidewall cracks at 4 years old. The shop recommended the Transforce to replace the Michelins then and said that the Rodian has given them trouble free service on all of there fleet trucks for years. They said the sidewall is thicker than the Transforce and recommended them over the Firestone and Cooper tires. They were slightly less expensive also. I usually listen to them since they sell a lot of tires and have a stellar reputation in our area plus I always have had great luck with any tire they have put on all of our vehicles. I have about 500 miles on them pulling our car on the tow dolly and have to say that they ride nice. We will see about their longevity.

RE: Portable Surge Guard

I also have the Progressive Industires product that works great! I check the pedestal with the surge guard first before I plug in. On two occasions I had bad connections on the pedestal and had to move to a different site. I usually take a long trash bag to cover the pedestal during rainy weather since the surge guard usually hangs below the protected pedestal housing.

RE: New Nexen Rodain CT8 tires

Hope we get more than 20k from them for sure. They are the Nexen Rodian CT8 HL. Have not put many miles on them yet but I hope can say in five years that they were good tires.

New Nexen Rodain CT8 tires

Just had 4 new rear Nexen Rodian Tires installed on our Winnebago. Went to the local family tire shop and they recommended them over the Firestone Transforce that I had on for 6 six trouble free years. They have never steered us wrong and have a strong fleet tire business going for decades so they know what tires are the least problematic. They said the sidewall was more stout than the Firestones. We will see.

RE: Having problem with ramps hitting car frame

Our Demco Kar Kaddy manual states that the hitch should be around 18 inches from the ground for best performance. I had to use a straight hitch to provide the right height. Straight hitches are not easy to find. Read your manual and see what height they recommend your hitch be from the ground.

RE: Bicycle cover

I have one from camping world at it works great for my bike. It says that it is made for two bikes but I only use it for one.

RE: Tow dolly instructions

Depends on the type and make of dolly and there are different approaches to whether or not the steering gear is free or locked. Who makes the dolly? Does the type of dolly have a turntable or swivel plate that allows the lower dolly to turn underneath the wheel platform? Or is it have the type of dolly in which the cars wheels sit directly on the dolly that does not have a moving swivel plate or turntable? With a swivel plate or turntable the wheels are to be locked as the turn table allows the car to track through a turn. On the type of dolly without a swivel plate or turntable, the wheels in the car must be able to turn and track throughout a turn and thus must be free and not locked. Arguments can be made in favor of both approaches or types of dolly configuration. I went the turntable/swivel pate route and thus I lock mine with an American Car Dolly. I always put the car in park and use a safety chain in addition to tire straps X2 We have a Demco Kar Kaddy with the turning base. We put our car in Park and lock the steering wheel the tow dolly does the rest.

RE: acceptable tire age

Agree with all above! Bought a tow dolly last year. Was getting ready for a 3000 mile road trip and had five year old tires that looked new. I changed them out plus a spare.

RE: Tow dolly

We have a Demco Kar Kaddy. It is a great product. We use it to tow different front wheel drive cars. That is the beauty of the tow dolly. The Kar Kaddy makes using a tow dolly as easy as possible. If I had only one vehicle, to tow, then I would consider towing four down but for now it is great to have the flexibility.

RE: 303 protectant

303 is great stuff. I use it in addition to wax. It is great on tires, dashboard, vinyl graphics, boat covers etc... I buy a gallon a year and use it on all of our vehicles, boats.
