RE: Fifth wheel trailer suspension

You must really love your trailer. Not sure I would invest that much into one that old.

RE: Ford 6L diesel in the news again

I wonder what the plaintiff is driving these days? Brand new PS would be my guess. No props to Ford, but that Kool-aid runs deep with a lot of their customers.

RE: Best Built 5er?

I joined their facebook page. They are still getting issues with construction just like everybody else. The difference is the customer service seems to be better. Small startups almost always have good customer service. Its when they get big that they cant keep up and it goes to ****.

RE: No more Bridgestone Duravis R250 tire?

So it was your right rear (doorside) tire? I have only had two blowouts in 24 and 1/2 years of towing travel trailers and both were the right rear and both were Chinese made tires. Yes right rear curb side. In my experience and having seen friends loose tires that seems to be the most prone spot for blowouts on a dual axle trailer. Also the hardest to see/notice from the drivers seat.

RE: No more Bridgestone Duravis R250 tire?

Agree with what your saying. All I can say is one second I was running fine, next second there was a pretty violent tug from the trailer on the truck. Looked out the passenger side mirror and saw chunks of rubber flying. I was running solo so had nobody behind me when it happened. Lonely stretch of HWY 395 just north of Ridgecrest. That is very near BFE! Pretty violent tug was most likely the cap separating from the carcass. If the other sidewall looks the same, that was run flat. Thats what I'm thinking. Other side looks the same. No way a tire goes from looking perfectly fine to that in a couple of seconds. So I guess with nobody behind me on the road the only way I could have avoided this situation would have been with TPMS on the trailer. Spend good money on good tires to avoid this kind of ****, and you can still get screwed.

That wasn't a blowout. It was a Nuclear Detonation. :E It sure felt like it. I think I'm lucky I got away with no damage to the undercarriage/side of trailer.

RE: No more Bridgestone Duravis R250 tire?

Tires are 2-3yr old. Spare measures 12mm tread depth and my running tires are all at 10-11mm with even wear across all tires. They dont sit in the sun and have zero cracks. Now to the day it blew I was only traveling 63-65mph (do 70+ all the time in NV) and had only been on the highway for 30-40min when it let go. I felt it blow and pulled off immediately. The entire tread ring was still intact and separated from the tire. Trailer is only 12klb GVWR so tires were not run up at their limits. Run them all at 70psi all the time. Go figure...

No more Bridgestone Duravis R250 tire?

I lost one this past weekend (bad blowout) and am looking to replace and see its no longer listed on Bridgestone's website. Does anyone know if the R238 is a replacement for the R250?

Auto tire deflate/inflate

How many would pay for this as a new truck option??? I know as someone who frequent offroads I would pay good mioney. Screw the 18 stinkin useless cameras and navigation BS. Give me something useful... It amazes me with all these fancy BS truck options we have these days I still have to bust out the air compressor and hose every time I want to hook up the trailer.0
