RE: Utah National Park tour

Hated shuttle in Zion. Will not do again. I will only go if I can drive myself. I guess it is the off season for me.

RE: Rate You Truck's Reliability - Heavy Duty Diesels

I am in the middle of a 7k mile trip. Hauling a FW. I wouldn't be here if I didn't think highly of my truck.

RE: Dropped 5er with Pullrite SuperGlide?

I am new to 5th wheel after 23 years with motorhomes. I bought a B & W, like the ones pictured, I love it, easy to look and see that it is closed and locked. You guys are making me want to order a new truck though, with these pics of the puck system. I am on a 6k trip as I write this.

RE: Triangle tires

axles are 6k tires are rated at 3450 each GVW on fiver is 14K. Loaded and on the road we are 12.5 with 1.5 on the pin. No experience with them. When I buy a trailer(any type) and it comes with any brand ST tires I have LT tires put on and then sell the ST tires on craigslist or the local city newspaper. You can use those china made ST for a year or two then replace them with a LT235/85-16 E at 3042 lbs which covers a 6k axle. Lawn service/utility trailer owners are always looking for a cheap new or used tire so they sell fast. Now if the load on your tire are close to max (3000 lbs) then a LT235/85-16 G at 3750 lbs would be my choice. I went with 5 new Coopers in the LT. I weighed the rig yesterday. Full water and fuel. Empty black and grey. 9350 on the 2 5th axles. 6400 on drive and 5200 on steer. I am way below on all axles and tires. We have driven 900 miles in 2 days. No issues and a month to go. HAVING FUN>

RE: Hartland ST235 80R 16 tires

my fiver came with 235/80R/16 I took all 4 off today and am going tomorrow. My rims are chinese and dont say anything about max air pressure. They are rated for 3950LBS I have 6k axles. GVW is 14k. Loaded I think we are about 13K. Empty weight is 9875. I cant find a LT tire in this size. G614 sound great but I prob cant do 110 PSI.. I will check out Mich RIB I guess. I also wonder if I will have fitting issues with a diff size???

RE: Triangle tires

OK, delaying 4 week trip one day to go buy new tires monday. Hoping for Goodyear.

RE: Triangle tires

They came on my fiver. I would not have bought them. I wanted to leave on Monday that's all. Looks like I have to get new tires first.

RE: Triangle tires

If they are ST tires and made in China, I'd avoid them. Hard to make a recommendation since I don't know your weight, number of axles, and what the axles are rated at. But I do know I would avoid any ST tire except the Sailun S637. axles are 6k tires are rated at 3450 each GVW on fiver is 14K. Loaded and on the road we are 12.5 with 1.5 on the pin.

locking B & W companion fifth wheel hitch

If I pull 2 pins the head pops right off. Any way to lock it. I would hate for it to walk off.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

Thanks guys, where to buy the B and W hitch. I really don't want to drill a bunch of holes if I don't have to.
