Power king tires

I have PowerKIng tires on my current trailer. I was told that they have switched to a new construction design like Maxiss. Does anyone know when they switched over? Can I tell by the date code if they are new or old design? EDIT.... Never mind... I see the overlay construction is only for 15" and 16". I guess it doesn't matter when my 14" were made, they will still be "China Bombs". If I make it home with them, I'll replace them.

RE: Musty smell from dash vents

Mine does that if it sits for awhile. I was told to turn off a/c a few blocks from home to let moisture escape. (don't know if this really works but...) I then used a product called FrigeFresh made by BG. I got mine at the Toyota parts counter. Sprayed that thru the outside intake with the unit running and the smell has not returned. Where is the outside intake? Same as the air cleaner for the engine? Sorry if it's a dumb question, I have had vehicles with a cabin air filter. Mine is in the engine compartment on the firewall. No the engine intake....

RE: AC Hard Start Capacitor

Don't want to start a big argument but.. This is an email posted in another forum from an rep of Supco. You will get every argument there is. I suggest calling their support and asking yourself if you don't believe his post. Jim Berry July 13th, 2011 at 7:22 am If you are adding a hardstart to your RV A/C unit, use the SPP6 (no E). The SPP6E is not designed for 120VAC applications, The ā€œEā€ series is also an instant restart unit, this does not allow the generator sufficient time to rampup to full power. The SPP6 has the preferred PTC relay and allows a longer ramp up time. The SPP6 is rated for 120VAC usage. Remember for every thousand feet above sea level you generator drops 3% of output. On hotter days the A/C drops in efficiency as well. Check with your A/C manufacturer on the correct generator size for your unit. As far as I know there is not a manufacturer that will reccomend a 2000 watt generator to run a 13,500 BTU A/C unit. If you have any questions about the SPP6 or any other Supco part, please contact us at 1-800-333-9125 ext. 261 our Tech Support will be glad to assist you. Thanks, Jim Berry Director Product Management Sealed Unit Parts Co., Inc.

RE: Any discount programs for disabled? Golden age?

Golden Access pass is free to disabled. Take your SS Disability award statement to a Forest Service office and they should be able to issue you one. Can do thru mail as well. California offers a State Park disability but I think you have to be a resident. Check your home state. Good luck.

RE: Good Sam Member Designation Under Forum Name?

Don't think it's the "screen name" you use it's the email account address.

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.

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.

Double post...sorry

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
