RE: Floor issue in 2018 Talon

The amazing thing is that YOU have to point it out. This is not good and they are still touching it? This is going to be a botched up mess. I think it'll end up back at Jayco before it's all said and done. The dealership's already hinted around about it. Jayco's not going to want to pay shop rates just to explore around and try to figure out the issue. It can be done much cheaper up there.

Floor issue in 2018 Talon

Looking for some opinions on what would cause the floor to "crown" in the area directly in front of the slide out in our Talon. Here's the backstory. We took it in because the slide was digging into the vinyl when closed. Jayco authorized a new floor as well as new rollers on the slide. When I picked it up I imediately noticed it still wasn't right. Slide was sitting on the floor and would've torn the new floor in one or two uses. I left it with them again and what was found was the floor has "crowned" up along the area under the slide (if the slide was in). With a 4ft level from the slide opening going across it's at least 3/8th off at 4ft. So the slide out geometry is correct but the floor is raised. It's not enough to feel when walking on it and it's not a "bubbled" effect. Jayco has authorized the dealer some time to diagnose but as of today the dealer nor Jayco has a direct plan other then cutting into the floor, basically exploratory surgery. We've ruled out a bad frame outrigger and some other minor possibilities.

RE: 2017 or newer F-450 issues

I don't own one but I spend at least 50 hours a week in a 2019 F450. I work for a very large cable utility company. In a 5-6 county area I've heard of no issues with a HPFP or any other major issues since the 6.4 days. Those however, well.........

RE: Gas pump

What do you mean replace handle? Nozzle, handle, gun, pump, I'm talking about the part that the gas comes out of. Just different terminology for the same thing.

RE: Gas pump

If your talking about just the handle itself, they sell a much better one at Tractor Supply. I replaced mine fairly early on cause it was sticking as well.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

People constantly complain about "junk" but are happy with substandard wearing tires. If you're happy with tires that last two years, more power to ya. I feel my tires, trailer or passenger vehicle, should last more than two years. This is strictly my opinion. You don't have to like it, but that's the way I feel. Under normal usage these tires would absolutely last much longer. Safe practice is replacing trailer tires every 4-5 years regardless of wear. The average camper is not on the road 12-15K miles a year like us. Most trailer tires will never see that many miles. I don't think it's fair to call these tires "junk" based solely on my review.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

One thing about switching to a LT tire that some aren't thinking about it the size of these tires. A 255/85 is a 33x10. It is a HUGE tire to be on a camper. Most LT's that size are all terrain tires with a lower load capacity. These GY's have a load capacity of 4080lbs and I need every bit of that as we load to full capacity occasionally.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

I would be concerned about the slight cracking. With that many miles on them, they have not been sitting long enough to dry rot, and they are only 3 years old. Should not be cracking. I agree, but it is hardly noticeable at this point. I didn't see it until I had them off today and in the sun. If I took a picture of the tire, you wouldn't see it.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

"Flat spot" Why is that? UH maybe a brake sticks in one spot??? "seems slightly out of round" Why is that? Have you jacked it up to see if it actually is? So 25-30k per set, where are the failures? Maybe "flat spot" wasn't the best choice of words. There's a spot roughly the size of my hand where the tread is worn more than the rest of the tire that caught my attention. Out of round....Yes, I had the tire off the ground a little and it "grabbed" the concrete just a little in one spot when I spun it, nothing major. I guess this is a hot topic here lately, I don't get on here much anymore. I just felt like I've probably got more miles on mine than most so I thought I'd share my experience with them as they are still new in the market. Cracks could be from not covering, it doesn't sit for very long at a time so I don't fool with covers.

Goodyear Endurance long term review.

My 2018 Jayco Talon came with the Goodyear Endurance ties in 255/85/16. We use our TH for our sons racing which spans from Fla-NY about 10 months a year. I'd estimate we have approx. 25-30K miles on these tires. Generally, the wear is even on them although one has developed a flat spot and one seems slightly out of round. All four are down to the wear marks and starting to show very slight cracking. I'd say these are loaded on average at 75% capacity and always aired to max psi. Rotated a couple times a year maybe. I'll be replacing them very soon with another set of the same as I've been pleased with these, considering the milage I've put on them. With the average user not putting this much milage on camper tires I would highly recommend these.
