RE: Maxxis Tires c or d

I ran a set of those in 205/75R14 on my previous trailer for a season in load range E and was nothing but impressed with how the trailer handled, I will upgrade my current unit to Maxxis tires once the time comes. Where did you find an "E" rated 14" tire? I've only seen those from Kumho. O.P. What PSI are your rims rated for? Putting 65lbs. in a rim rated for 50lbs. is a 30% overload. It may be fine, as I've never heard of a rim exploding from excess psi, but it would still scare me.

RE: Sam's Club Greenball Transmaster tires

I had Transmaster II on my last trailer when I bought it and ended up replacing them half way thru a cross country trip with very few miles on them.

RE: Replacement Tub

My nephew had a boat fiberglass shop reinforce the bottom of his tub. Heavier yes, but doesn't have that flimsy "I'm gonna fall thru feel." Well worth checking into. When mine cracks, that's my plan.

RE: Allison 1000

There is no better filter than the OEM. Aftermarket seem to have a problem with the placement of the holes, thereby restricting the flow. Look in the Yellow Pages for an Allison dealer near you. We get them for $8.25 at our dealer. They sell the Transynd also. And rgatijnet1 is correct...You are not supposed to "flush" an Allison.

RE: Nuwave vs Salton

I was in Walmart today and in their "As seen on TV" section they are closing out the NuWave for $49.00.

RE: HELP... What works to get yellow streaks off of Fiberglass

L.A's Totally Awesome, from the $1 Store and sometimes WalMart may remove some of it. If you already tried the fiberglass cleaner it may be set too deep. Paint may be the answer.

RE: Kumho Radial 857 as travel trailer replacement tire

Had them on my last TT and for 3 years on a 32" boat trailer. I have had excellent wear with them and no signs of uneven wear or wear period. I'm going to replace my current tires with them. I would highly recommend them!
bob213 04/04/14 07:32pm Travel Trailers

Congratulations on your new TT! We may need some more info to make a guess at your problems. What are you towing with? What size E2 do you have? (weight for bars...1000lb....1200lb) Do you have a brake controller? Look at the "sticky" under towing about setting up a WD hitch and see if yours looks correct. Just because the dealer hooked it up doesn't mean it's right.

RE: Fagor Pressure Cooker, NuWave Induction Stove top

I have a Power Cooker brand that did not come with a rack. The meat just sits in whatever liquid is in the bottom. Any suggestions on what to use to keep the meat from drowing? Try something like this: Steamer rack

RE: Fagor Pressure Cooker, NuWave Induction Stove top

We have two. A Splendid and a Rapid. Both seem to cook equally well. The Duo let's you choose between two pressure setting.

RE: Fagor Pressure Cooker, NuWave Induction Stove top

Have the Fagor Pressure Cooker. Is the NuWave worth the money and good for general cooking?

RE: emergency go bag

We always keep two "GOOD" (get out of dodge) bags ready to go. One for each of us. Each has food for 72 hours. A small backpacker type stove. Flint, knife, dried jerky, handful of hard candies to suck on rather than drink your water. Water, pouches of tang or something similar. Can of chili and a can of soup. If you are not opposed..something for self defense. A flashlight. Soap, toilet paper etc. We also keep a document bag ready to grab. Auto pink slips, credit card info , duplicate credit or debit card, birth certificates(or passports), insurance papers, copy of my deed. If you come back and your house is not there all these papers will make reconstructing your life much easier. Some say we're nuts. We may be, but in the event of an emergency you can't be too prepared.

RE: ? on upgrading trailer tires from 14 inch to 15 inch rims

Keep in mind if you are considering the Kumho's that they are a metric size tire. A 195R14 Kumho is about the same size a 205/75/14 ST tire. If you have plenty of room go with the bigger (evidently you do if you are considering 15"). Remember to keep at least 1" between tires. I have the Kumho's on another trailer and I am very happy with them. Will your 14" rims hold 60-65 PSI?

RE: Folding bikes: buying and carrying

What are you going to do with the bikes when you are done? If you plan to keep them, I would suggest a decent one like a Dahon. Here's a list of Miami dealers: Dahon bikes If you are going to sell them, then just get some from CW and have them shipped to the El Monte rental agency so they will be there when you get there. Just let El Monte know they are coming.

RE: Blank Screen LaptopUPDATE!!!!

Are your recovery disks bootable disks? If so, try starting up with those.

RE: Outside Cable Connection

Thanks all so much for the replies! There are two connections inside so there has to be a splitter. Need to find the location of that sucker and I could remedy that. Lol. Add that to my list of things to do when we return after Spring Break. The cable for the 2nd tv usually comes from the back of the amplifier faceplate. Look at the Sat rewire link above and you will see where it more than likely splits and how to overcome the problem. If nothing else, remove the cable "in" connection from that plate and hook it directly to your sat. and see if it works before you do the rewire.
