RE: right front tire wear

Replace everything that moves with MOOG. Rotate, air up, and align... or just keep rotating till everything matches...then, rebuild the front end, get a brand-new set of tires and start like new. I'm personally not one to just replace one worn thing, even if you can find it. Just do it all at once, you will know it is all new. Be prepared, parts are not cheap, neither are tires but you pay for what you get.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

Whew!, this thread went all over the place, I'm back to check in. Well let me reiterate. This is about tire failure on two types of trucks right? I have had 14 Toyo tires on a DRW over a span of time. Two were recalls, which did not fail. I have had (4) tire tread separations with this particular type of Toyo tire, (3) of which I had to replace at my own cost. I gave it a chance. The marriage is over. I love good tires when they are safe and having four under the load is safer in my opinion... I already said I do not bash brands. Why do you think I had Toyo tires in the first place? It is like saying Ford makes great trucks but look back in time, they made the Pinto. I consider this many fails in my situation a safety issue and me as a consumer have gone elsewhere. I hope that clears up my opinion on tires. Now, what those tires are on is also your choice. If you cannot afford a DRW, that is understandable. I personally have had 4 trucks that have carried a TC, 3 which were SRW. I worked my way up and now have the DRW I currently have. I don't regret it, not one bit and I asked myself what took me so long to make the jump up? I'm pretty sure anyone who has or had a DRW truck wants a BIGGER DRW....LOL! Thanks everyone for the info...always love the education, that is what keeps me coming back!

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

You nailed it...I'm not a basher but those are the Toyo HT. Just bad tires. Good call deserteagle56. You know the brand and type to avoid. We have been down that road on bad tires. I was already leary after two other gave outs and it was definitely time to change it up. They were at about 50% anyway so it was a no-brainer.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

https://i.imgur.com/5ZAFzhFl.jpg YES it does happen...caught it (this) before it came apart. https://i.imgur.com/DL6nytbl.jpg A little closer.... https://i.imgur.com/2obUbmOl.jpg This is why I feel a tad bit safer having 4 rather than 2 under the rear load. Yes, I personally do know of a fatal rollover caused by a front tire failure and I was lucky when I had a front tire give out (only once). I have had multiple rear tire failures. I will blame it on the brand and have since replaced what I was using. Due diligence...If you don't have a TPM system always check every stop, and obviously if something does not feel right, stop and check, do a full walk around. BTW...always check your spare tire pressure too!...I guarantee most people forget to do this.

RE: Furnace on while moving

No one said generator too. I always run fridge and heater with no problems. I fire that Genny up about an hour before I'm ready to quit driving. I turn on my electric bed pad to HIGH and have a super awesome warm bed to crawl into if it is cold outside.

RE: Arctic fox 1140/1150 mods

Take off the Graphics...lol! Here is a good one though if you have the dry bath. If you look into the sink cabinet in the bath and to the left, you will see the LPG tank box. This area is uninsulated, and it gets very cold in that cabinet. Insulate it and you will be much warmer in cold temps.

RE: 2005 Arctic fox 1150 boat loader

A head banger...I have had an 1150 and they are...IMHO, way too tall. Really any TC. You would be at least 13+ feet if not more. Not very safe for a lot of reasons. Are you towing something else? You didn't mention it. They do make vertical racks you could install on the back which might be the better choice.

RE: General / Specific RV Question

The question: Is the Furrion A and B selector both on?... (As indicated by the upper center display showing 1 and 2). If so... Are you are only hearing one set of speakers inside? Check the balance, (by pressing the volume knob and rotate it to AUDIO ADJUSTMENT). Check to see if fade front to back is also available. Most setups use a fade to adjust sound levels on the outside speakers, (which I prefer) but in your case I think it is the A&B function situation in my opinion.

RE: One Tire Worn Out

Check your shackles and bushings while you're at trying to find the culprit. Have you seen how bad it can get? Things can really wear out...almost dangerous in some cases. Make sure everything is nice and tight. Then take some measurements from the center of the axles on both sides to see if they are lined up. You also might check measurements from the end of the frame (front and back) to the center of the axles also. Process of elimination may take a while but at least you will know where things are.

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

This is an example of my setup. Class 5 hitch 41" stinger. Cinched down to take out the extra movement. https://i.imgur.com/NrkCFMZl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/t5qIrz9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FTwdFsBl.jpg

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

Well at least it is a 3500...that is a good start. Almost 99.999% sure you would have to upgrade the hitch first to a class 5 to get that kind of extension length. I have a Reese...you will find that those long extensions are really heavy just to begin with FYI.

Gopro as a backup cam?

Got a new GoPro...never have used one (yet). Unboxed it and downloaded the app to my phone. They have a function that you can view what the camera sees. It came to me almost right away and thought I could use that to hook up my trailer to the hitch! I have an older truck and SUV with no tailgate cam so I went to YouTube and sure enough it is being done! Does anyone else do this? Or used it on the back of the trailer itself?

RE: fan in circuit-breaker box is cycling every 10 seconds

Question...Are you parked, plugged into shore power and disconnected from the tow rig when you noticed this? If so.. Have you moved the TT since? IF you are parked with shore power make sure you didn't accidently engage the electric brakes. If you moved you obviously could feel the brakes drag but check the pin on the emergency switch. This happened to me. The pin got pulled out slightly, didn't notice until the extra load caused the fan to run to cool the converter. Seems unlikely but something to look for.
