RE: Your thoughts on Transporter Tires?

ASK HIM IF HE WILL PAY FOR THE DAMAGE TO YOUR RIG IF THEY BLOWOUT THE FIRST YEAR! Let that be your guide. I would go to a LT TIRE Sadly many states are starting to require Trailer tires on trailers. So going to a LT tire is not a option for many.

RE: Need Advice on How to Replace

At any rate. You are going to need a professional to get it fixed to the point it will stay on.

RE: Towing with steep grades

OK, basically looking for opinions here. I have a Dodge Ram 3500 Quad Cab with the 5.9L Cummins - 2004.5. I pull a 2016 Rockwood 8329SS, which is a 35 foot, 8900 lb TT. I have no real concerns with the truck's ability to handle the TT - it does that quite well. My question involves traveling where there are fairly steep grades. The uphills don't cause me much pause but the downhills, I have heard, can be a bit tricky. My truck does not have an exhaust brake and the expense of one, at this time, is the main reason that I still don't have one. So, leaving the exhaust brake out of it, what are some of the more accepted methods for handling the downhill grades? Thanks gang. Go down SLOW. When I drove OTR, I was taught to go down really slow and hold the brakes to around 30 MPH. It worked for us. The "new" way is to let it run a little over 35, and brake down to around 25, and let it run back up. Which it will do in about 5 seconds, and then you have to do it again. Not going to cool a lot in 5 seconds. A diesel has no natural braking. So dropping down thru the gear box is not much help. You will just red line the engine. Diesels need some sort of braking help. Be it a trany brake, a engine brake, or exhaust brake. Otherwise. they just freewheel down the mountain

RE: TV Sucked Left by Trucks

Yes it is normal. Even he big trucks, and busses feel each other when they pass.

RE: Youtube video / tow anything

Those dollies have been around forever. The question is why?

RE: Brakes on this pup?

Thanks for all the helpful replies! I'm pretty convinced the trailer has electric brakes, since it definitely has the breakaway cable. The owner only used the trailer once, and never learned about the brake system, apparently. I'll definitely be getting the brake controller, which I understand is required by law here in Texas. Thanks again, Gary Since you need a Brake Controller. Don't let anyone sell you a "timed" controller. Get a good proportional, inertia, activated controller.

RE: So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

It may not be Coyotes!! It might be a high pitched whine from another camper complaining about the campfire! I like the beep beep answer best. I doubt that. We were in a Campground, not a RV resort. And there wasn't another camper within 75 yards of us on our side of the trail, and they were running a generator until dark. So they didn't even hear the Coyotes. But we could hear their Honda running.

RE: Big truck woes

While I agree that the OP has more trailer than truck. I don't believe any of the statements about not feeling the big trucks pass just because you have a 250, or 350. The big trucks, and busses feel each other pass. You get the same push pull with them as you do with a TT, or 5er. And as for those that say. They wouldn't tow any thing with a 1500, or F150. Maybe y'all shouldn't be driving. :B:B for I can honestly say. My F150 tows stops, and handles my 30' 6000lb TT better than our CLT9000 Road tractor handled, and stopped the 47' 50'000lb trailers it towed. BTW. the Big CLT9000 weighed 30,000lb AND. Just think. If a 250 does better than a 150, A Mack will do better than a 250. You may as well go ahead and get a big truck, (road tractor) and quit playing with the little trucks.

RE: Big truck woes

Is the sucking in when being passed something that can be adjusted out, Ken In truth NO. Every vehicle running up, and down the road feels the push pull of larger, or even the same size vehicles passing them. Even the big trucks feel another big truck pass. The real question is. How much does it move you around? It should not be enough to push you off the road, or pull you into the passing vehicle, or even scare you, or cause you to compensate heavily with the wheel. You may need to slightly compensate as they pass. But no more than that. For me. The big trucks move me less than a full sized van, or work truck.

RE: So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

... So, is "apple at chun" the correct way to pronounce "appalachian"? Yes it is. So many "smart" people think it is pronounced App a lay shion. there is no such place as App a lay shion.

So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

Coyotes howling? Remember it is really dark. The only light in the campground is your fire. No street lights, no camper lights. The moon is behind the trees. they sound like they are really close. I mean REALLY close. So what do you do? AND your fire is too big to leave alone.

RE: Trailer stair bounce

1st. Why is it bouncing? Look under the stairs where they mount, and make sure that the bolts are tight, That the blots are not pulling thru, and that the mount, or stairs are not broken.

RE: Used Coachmen a Apex 249rbs

I'd look at the inside roof for water stains. And as mentioned check the pipes. However. I don't think a roof leak will make it's way down the inside walls. APEX TT walls are made out of AZDEL. Which means they are solid foam walls. And they are VERY light as well. And they have double insulation values of reg laminate walls.

RE: When is overprice, a Rippoff ?

Well. At NAPA. You have to pay for Michael Wartrips losing race team. But take heart. they are going out of business. So maybe NAPA will drop the price.

Hunting cool.

So, I ran the TT up to the Blue Ridge Parkway this morning. Set it up, and will take DW and the GB up this evening. Julian Price Park. Our campsite is at 3450 feet. Just befor I started back down. The temp was 69 degrees. When I got to the bottom on the hill, It was 88 degrees. SO. I think I found it. Cool I mean. This is why we have the 3000' rule. Never camp below 3000' in the summer.

RE: 2 air ports near front drivers side tire?

Could it be a purge air? To let the water out of the compressor? Open the valve to let the air blow out the water.

RE: In Store Inventory Wrong again

Is there no other company / store that sells that exhaust system. I'm sure there is. Find it online, and go there.

RE: Sidewall Tire Repair

IF the tires are cracked on the sidewalls. they are cracked in the tread as well.

RE: tire age

If after you read the tire. they are more than 4 years old. Replace them. Tires that sit dry out. Rolling makes the side walls flex, and the flexing oils the tire. A tire used often will last much longer than a tire sitting.
