RE: Replace 235/80R 22.5 XRV Tires

Thanks folks! I'll look into those!

Replace 235/80R 22.5 XRV Tires

It's time to replace my Michelin 235/80R 22.5 tires on 2009 F53 chassis Thor Windsport I hear the Michelins may not be available. Since the 235/80 seems to be unique to Michelin, I may need to change sizes. I have read a bunch of posts and looked at the links on comparing tire sizes. My question is, how do you know a slightly wider tire will fit on the 22.5 x 7.5 wheel and not cause rubbing problems on the dual axle? I see posts where folks run a wider tire but I can't seem to find anything in the tire guides that specify wheel/rim width approved sizes. Thanks!

RE: So whats in your basement. Cabinet organization ideas.

My best tip for basement organization is make a map on paper and log everything you put into it and where. It will save many hours of searching for something you know you put in the basement! Don't ask me how I know..........

RE: Small Class A with Large FW tank

Another option is to add a flexible fresh tank. My 32 thor Windsport carries 60 gal FW I added a 40 gal flexible tank from west marine Fits easily in the forward pass through basement Just an option.......

RE: Are my turn signals invisible?

Happens to me all the time Seems to be directly proportional to how close to a city you are Closer to a city, closer the gap and no one lets you in I hit turn signal and if ignored, slowly move over You wonder why trucks change lanes so aggressively, no one lets them in The DW unfortunately is not so aggressive and now refuses to drive in cities, I don't blame her.....

RE: Cobwebs!

What really bugs me is when I crawl under my rig to check something and find the "cobweb maker" crawling on me! :E

RE: Wind question

When I can't keep it between the lines, my awning is whacking the safety stop, or my DW eyes pop out and she goes silent!

RE: Conflicting requirements for towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

What ever you do, make sure the parking brake did not auto engage while you were hooking up and going to neutral. Mine did once and I noticed the wheels would not roll. There are lots of reasons a it will auto engage, understand them!

RE: Conflicting requirements for towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I drive my Trailhawk to MH, put in park, hook up tow bar, put xfer case in Neutral per the manual, disengage electric parking brake, put tranny in drive and confirm it does not move, if so, move tranny to park and release the electric parking brake ( because it automatically engages when you put tranny in park), remove key. When I first start the motorhome, I put it in drive and see if it will roll without the accelerator, if so and toad wheels are rolling and turning I smile and GO!

RE: Mountain driving and towing with a gas class A

I have driven over just about every paved mountain pass in CO. While my 09 Ford 22000# rig and 4000# toad can make it just fine and slow, I prefer to unhook and let the DW follow. Only takes 5 min on each side and doesn't push the vehicles so hard. Adds 10 minutes per pass to my drive and a whole lot of peace of mind. So I get there 10-20 minutes behind you, you will be set up and greet me with a cocktail!

RE: Finally 2014 Cherokee base plate install

odd, I installed my blue ox baseplate in my trailhawk and no drilling was required in the frame I used to use the magnetic tow lights, but have switched to using the existing lights with diodes. It is so much more convenient and no risk of scratching the paint. The only way to wire tow lights for the 2014 Cherokee is diodes. I'm not splicing into the cars electrical system no matter how safe others claim it to be. I don't need more electrical problems causing warranty issues. The wireless lights take about as much time to connect. The lights I purchased don't just have rubbed boots. They're sealed to the magnets. They weren't cheap, but built real nice. I purchased the Rc 1 independent lights. http://www.bladestowright.com/cart/ecom-catshow/Wireless_Lightbars.html

RE: Am I Getting Ready to Buy A Lemon?

even if it isn't a lemon, do you want to take it back to that dealer for warranty.........odds are good that there will be warranty items after you take it home.......make sure you price that in if you will not be returning to that dealer for warranty repair....

RE: Too tall

I am often seen driving the streets of my small town on the wrong side of the road due to the many branches that reach out and scratch my rig! I have to go out of my way through the maze......to get home safe!:)

RE: Why no rear window in Holiday Rambler?

Fixed rear window and side windows that open for cross ventilation are a must have for me. We spend a lot of time in the mountains with beautiful views, sounds , and temps. Sometimes we wake up at the beach with a view of the ocean...... Few times I was sick for a week in bed, the rear window was a blessing. After 20 years of RVing with a rear window, I'm stuck in my ways....:S:D

RE: Problem with Progressive Dynamic Converter

My coach batteries are two 6v wet cell hooked in series. I have measured the voltage at several locations. Directly on the terminal posts, at the terminal on the electrical control module (marked coach), as well as the output terminals of the converter. I have also measured the electrolyte with a hydrometer to determine the level of charge. I have the plug in wizard to monitor the battery voltage and switch to the various charge modes. I have also removed the converter and hooked it direct to a partially charged battery and measured the voltage at the converter with and without the battery load. Without the battery connected I get around 13.8 vdc with a digital meter. When I connect the battery, the voltage drops below 12 vdc. I can hook up a simple 12v automobile charger to the coach batteries and get favorable results (the batteries charge) The simple fact remains, the converter is most likely faulty; both the original and the replacement. I am pleased to know others are not experiencing the same problem with the Progressive Dynamic unit. I was probably unfortunate to get two bad ones in a row. My new converter will arrive in a few days and pass on the results. Thanks for all your comments. what you describe sounds correct with a partially discharged battery. 13.5 with no load, 12V when partially discharged battery connected, did you measure current when you hooked up the partially discharged battery? it takes a while to bring the voltage up on a discharged battery
