RE: Here is my damage

Save the blown tire, the manufacturer will want it. The manufacturer (Carlisle and goodyear) has always paid for tire replacement and damage to my trailer. Contact your tire manufacturer and explain the problem and they will give you instructions for the blown tire and to file a claim.

RE: How long a camper can I (should I) tow?

Any length, pay attention to weight. How much weight is your truck rated to tow? Read the towing specs for your truck not the door jamb sticker or the personal opinions. The manufacturer has the specs.

RE: 2011 GMC 2500HD, more extension than stock towing mirrors..

If you have the optional towing mirrors then pull them out further.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

I think people need to quit thinking about all this break even magic. If you can afford to wait then wait and get more. If you cant afford to wait then start taking it when you can.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

There are a lot of options. I started taking mine at 62 because I was ready to retire after surgery for colon cancer (100% gone BTW). Stifel Nicolas just ran an analysis for us looking at my wife's SS. She is currently 2 years away from full benefits, but they continue to improve if she waits to 70. Best option for us is for her to take spousal benefits at 66 (half of mine) and not take her own benefit until she hits 70. The spousal benefit is available to wives or husbands, still married or divorced or widowed. You can take the larger of your own benefit or half of your spouses, but you can start spousal benefit at full retirement age and switch to your own when it hits the max. Good option, that's what we are doing.

RE: Social Security question/ help please if you know

Real simple. If you wait until 70 to draw your ss your monthly payment will increase at 8% per year between the age of 62 and 70. Add 2% per year estimate for cola and that makes a 10% increase in monthly payments per year. That's a guaranteed increase that you will not get in the stock market. You will not be able to find a better investment. Forget about the crazy argument about how long you will live, thats something no one has the right answer for.

RE: It's a Shame!

Car manufacturers use low bid tires also that are a lower quality than what you can buy from the dealer. Always provide tires to the dealer for the vehicle you are buying.

RE: Wannabee

Tent trailer campers and pop up campers are not that wide. Travel trailers and fifth wheels are about the same width as your dually rear fenders. Whats the problem, have you hit something with your dually rear fenders?

RE: tire blowout

Save the tire and contact the manufacturer, they will want the tire. I have had carlisle and goodyear pay for the damage to my trailer and a new tire.

RE: tires out of round because of bent wheels

Tires out of round yes, A tire shop can fix that. Bent wheels??? The dealer is after your money or he doesn't know what he is talking about. Ask him how he determined the tires were bent, guess work doesn't work.

RE: How to properly and safely lift a 5er?

Don't screw the trailer up. Put a lowering kit on the truck.

RE: RV Salesman

So? That's the way it has always been. Same when buying cars.

RE: 110psi tire question...

Nothing to be confused about. The PSI to run in your tires is on the sidewalls of your tires. Running your tires overinflated or under inflated will cause the tires to overheat and damage the tire. If you need more info then contact the tire manufacturer. Do not pay attention to the tire expert wannabes on the forum. Their personal opinion or bad habits is not in your best interest.

RE: Tow Truck

What is the tow rating for this truck?????? Its legally your responsibility to get an adequate tow vehicle for your trailer. Personal opinions are risky to follow. Get the facts from the manufacturer.

RE: It's a Shame!

Its the same with cars, tire bids go to the lowest bidder. Tire manufacturers make different quality tires with the same name, some are high quality some are very low quality. If you want higher quality tires then its up to you to negotiate that with the dealer and pay for it.

RE: Crazy or Doable?

Recipe for disaster. 1. Find the trailer first. 2. Since you will know the trailer weights find the truck you need to handle the trailer by reading the tow specs. If you don't know the trailer you want then you obviously don't know what you need for a tow vehicle. Ford Tow Specs
