RE: Hitch choice

^^^^^^ OMG another person that has should I say it???? "COMMON SENSE" Its MUCH easier to "High Hitch the other brands that have thin 1/2" jaws since the plates would be 1/2" closer together compared to a 1" thick jaw B&W. With a "B&W" it's impossible to drop the RV "IF" the hitch and pinbox plates are touching, the latching handle is closed and locked and the jaws are fully closed around the kingpin. These only require a "VISUAL" test. I am NOT telling anyone what to do, I am letting people know with open minds and have common sense what they can do. Mechanical failure is the only way a dropped RV can happen with the B&W using the above method. I am willing to take that chance.

RE: Another generator thread? yea, want your ideas, please?

I have a Cummins 6500 LP commercial 240v. It’s thirsty but propane does not go bad. I can run two AC’s. I went with the Commercial so I could run my 240v washer and dryer. Out of sight but there anytime I want or need it.

RE: Bearings and bad decisions......

"I am a little afraid to see the repair bill......" I'm betting less than the tow bill. I hope so. Consider that we are replacing the entire rear axle, brakes and one wheel and tire. And they are working on Saturday to get it done. I will be surprised it is less than $1000... OH, I’m rescinding my bet. :B

RE: what defines a 3/4 ton?

Modern 3500/350 DRW trucks are limited to 14,000 GVWR. The trucks capacity is WELL beyond that now. BUT the licensing and insurance rates keep them within that number. Simply math will tell you the trucks capability. My UNLOADED front axle weight is about 5,250# simply add the SAE RAWR of 9,750# to that. HMMMMM 15,000# how can it be that it's OVER 14,000 GVWR?????? So y'all that are on the "Sky is Falling" side when it comes to GVWR there are the facts. Simply license that sucker to what the tires are carrying and enjoy the ride. https://i.imgur.com/za2alA3l.jpg

RE: Modifying roof a/c cover

"Wasn't this exact subject word for word, posted up a couple of months ago ??" Does it matter? Same "can I tow" or "Tires?" topics abound.

RE: What options?

"Camping” went out the window with the purchase of a 6-figure rig" YEP, Long progression from Tent Camping to Full Time living! If I could choose I would go back to the 4 point Hydraulic leveling system on my 07.5 MS. Slap a pc of plywood under one side to level side to side unhook and level front to back. Simple solid and dependable. Our paint job is called "cut and buff". All paint edge transitions are smooth to the touch. https://i.imgur.com/kIj76oUl.jpg

RE: What options?

" I appreciate my disc brakes, but I don't think I would pay to install them on a trailer that didnt come with them." I'm thinking you would do the job your self!!!

RE: What options?

"Next door last winter spent $15000.00 to paint their 2010 carriage fifth. It looked beautiful." I know a couple that did the same and yes it was VERY nice!

RE: Rough Ride

2.5 years with an excellent record is not long enough? Not when I'm replacing 5 year old tires. Even Marathons were good for maybe 2 years, 2.5 years and not one non road hazard failure that has been mentioned I think that's good enough. I have two years on my Boat Trailer ENDURANCE tires. They hold air well never needing to add, TowMaster spare needs air often. I also am in and out of Salt Water constantly plus tow at 70.

RE: Greetings and weight question

"Nice to know I have plenty of truck for when we upgrade." Smart Man!!!

RE: Greetings and weight question

PUT ABOUT 50 LBS OF AIR in those rear duals and you will really love the ride. If that!

RE: What options?

Full Body Paint. Is it really worth the 10k additional cost? When the rig is well north of 100k I feel it is.

RE: Rough Ride

Well I also running Sailuns on 6K axles. When I replaced the R-250's there were not alot of "quality" choices. The Sailuns were quite a bit less the Michelin XPS Ribs and Bridgestone Duravis R-238s. Not sure if I want to beta test the Goodyear Endurance, and the other ST's are JUNK. 2.5 years with an excellent record is not long enough?

RE: Rough Ride

If a tire is rated for 110 psi and ran less psi, wouldn't this cause a issue due to "under inflation"? Still think a name brand E ply LT tire is best bet. Ran LT's on our '06 Cedar Creek (13,800 fully loaded) at 80 psi for 12 years and no probs. I ran Michelin XPS Ribs and Bridgestone Duravis R250s on our 12,400 lb 5er for years. Original LT235/85R16E china bombs called for 65 psi. I found that the Ribs were wearing a little more in the out edges so I upper inflation to 71 PSI and had even wear. Inflation is based on the load the tires actually carry, not their maximum inflation. In several calls to Michelin, they always stated that over inflation for the load carried can lead to impact damage and reduced braking ability. Tires state MAX Load XXXX at YYY PSI. On passenger car and LT tires there on inflation charts that are universal across all brands for the same size and load range tire. Along came cheap ST tires and it is my belief that inflation to max side number is just a bandaid that manufactures tried to stick on the tires, because high failure rates. Finally after many years there are now better ST tires available. Inflation charts for ST tires seem to vary by manufacture if they exist at all, as they comply with different standards(think lesser). Still a little puzzled because most blowouts from what I gather are due to underinflation. Load and proper inflation is the way to go. There is a reason they make load/inflation chart for every tire.

RE: What options?

"Must Have options - Auto Level, 3rd AC, Heat Pump, Thermo pane windows, Full Body Paint, Electric Awning, Disc Brakes and Morryde IS System," Only correction, remove "Heat Pump" and replace with CheapHeat!!! To add to your list, Bosch 220V clothes washer, Whirlpool 220V Dryer, FischerPaykal Dishwasher and full size KitchenAid side by side refrigerator. agree the side by side is a great addition to glamping, Our last Redwood had the Fischer-Paykal, this one has a Dehco, wife loves it so much better! Have not heard of Dehco. I have had no issues with the FP as I am the operator most of the time. If mind takes a dump I will look into that brand.
