RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

That was ugly, looked like a pretty straight stretch of road. Always wonder when you see a wreck like that . Most likely distracted, but I am sure it will come out what happened . No bad weather ,road conditions seemed good etc.

RE: Newer RVs....ugh

Our 2007 Montana 5er, bought new July 2007, has been as troublefree as we could have ever hoped for. Still in great shape. :C And it is paid for. No new RV in our near future. Same here 2008 Montana fifth wheel ,no plans to get rid of it. Graphics are getting a little ragged ,replaced some, still have some to replace. Other then that, its been basically trouble free ,did replace the cheap hydraulic lines . Also this year replaced the shear springs , but that is a wear item .

RE: Tires, again!

But the OP gave no weight for his trailer so no way to know if the Sailun would be overkill. No such thing as overkill when it comes to camper tires in my opinion. Sure no biggie if you don't care if your beatin the HE!! outa yer RV. But, But, what about inflation charts, I won't go into what A Sailun rep told me, but you can sure air them down . I talked in length to him about how to run these G rated 110 psi tires, so no IMO you don't have to beat the HE!! out of your RV. I am no where near the 4400 lb rating of my Sailuns, although I don't air them down to what I could ,I get a very good ride, nothing jumbled up in the fifth wheel , no screws coming loose etc. After replacing the shear springs in the MorRyde suspension it rides even better .

RE: New Truck and 5th wheel

Went from a sgl. rear wheel to a dually one ton. No comparison. I drive the dually almost every day. Never had any issues with where I can go except through a car wash. Don't even notice it's a dually most of the time. The towing experience has to tried to believe the difference, plus the bigger brakes and towing ability. I would never go back. This one is a Chev. Last one was a Ram. This has been much more reliable. Maybe the new Rams are better?? B.O. No they are not ,stick to the Chevy. :B

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

That’s helps, I have one , but have you seen what comes out when you drain one ? I don’t worry I don’t blow the lines. I use an oil less compressor with an in line air filter. Set the regulator to less than 60 PSI and I make sure to take the air out of the top of the compressor tank, not the water out of drain at the bottom of the tank ;). Is the air completely clean? Likely not. I don't worry too much about it because before I use it again I will do a full sensitization and system flush. There is no wrong way here, but some need to be aware of what they are blowing into those lines. Used AF for years with no issues.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

One that doesn't use oil. What is a good air compressor to blow out lines? That’s helps, I have one , but have you seen what comes out when you drain one ? I don’t worry I don’t blow the lines. I open the two low point drains , open all the faucets etc , that allows all the lines that can drain out , drain . Drain the water heater , all the tanks. Bypass the water heater , and fill the lines with AF. Fill the traps with AF . Finished

RE: Ram 2019 3500 diesel

Don't forget about AMZ OIL.... Darnit... We'll be getting more lip service on AMZ oil products now. I don't know if AMZ oil promoted him to VP of Marketing yet, but it could happen now. LOL...:B He’s always got Goodyear , and Michelin . Gotta be on their payroll . I’m sure losing the Ram marketing position will not hurt him :D

It's funny how 14 and Shiny can't stick to what I SAID when responding or stop twisting my words. Two Peas In A Pod I say. What are you doing dragging me in, I respond very little to “YOUR “ nonsense . How many times have I read , can’t be thin skinned. Man up , quit your whining :B

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

One of the tricks when "BLOWING" is to leave the valves OPEN. I would never put that "STUFF" in my water lines. You must have an extremely clean air compressor , drain the water out of it lately . I would not like that STUFF in my water lines , but regardless a little sanitizing will take care of either way .

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

I don't think what one person does has much relevance to what someone else does. Every rv is different. Depends where you live. Here in Ontario, it can be minus 20 and lower for weeks on end. As others have stated, I used to use only air, until one year I froze my toilet valve. I fixed it, and bought a different rv that year. Trying to get all the water out was near impossible. I could see the pump still had water at it, in spite of many attempts with the air. I gave in, and ran pink through the lines until I could only see pink at the pump. I have used air and pink ever since. I don't drink the water in the tanks anyway, but it only takes a couple of tank flushes till I don't notice it anymore. To each their own. Spending ten bucks on rv antifreeze is a lot cheaper than tearing open a wall to find a split pipe. Its all good until it isn't. Cheers. I agree , not sure at all the disagreement with AF , I flush it out in the spring , do a little sanitizing with bleach, and have had no issues the past 15 years . I also don’t see the issue with drinking the water, although we do use a Brita .

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

IMO there's nothing wrong with being brand loyal, but you just don't want to be brand loyal to the point of blindness. I'm brand loyal to B&W hitches, Sailun tires, and Honda motorcycles. And DeWalt cordless tools. I am brand loyal to what serves me best. ONLY RV tire issue I have EVER had was on current DRV with GY "H" 17.5's. I had some pcs of the center tread come off, no loss of air. GY replaced that tire and 3 others. They had a batch in 2015 that had same issue. All of my RV tires have been GY since early to mid 90's. Not even a flat. B&W has been great owning several of their products. Last is the B&W Tow N Stow ball setup! I have owned 5 RAM trucks never left along the side of the road, well twice that I failed to add fuel! I have owned many DeWalt cordless tools over my career and beyond into retirement. Corded tools I have my favorites over several brands as each are the best IMHO. I buy the highest quality most dependable products and have been served well over the years. Could have bought the Chinese Made adjustable CURT at far less $$$. https://i.imgur.com/PlGJlAQl.jpg Ya, same great tire you love . 4*1/2 year old Goodyear’ G114 I read about on the Montana forum with the blowout , one among many Goodyear blowouts reported there. No I did not say Endurance :)

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

Just gots ta throw out a negative Nannie comment. At least one has some humor. “;)” Oh trust me there is plenty of humor in these tire threads . I just don’t drink the koolaid. You brand loyalist crack me up, that’s for sure.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

Well when do I get my Degree in Tire Failure Science??? Thanks for the writeup CapriRacer! What's y'all negative nannies have to say now???Come back when those tires are 5 and 6 years old and have 30-40,000 miles on them. Oh wait, they don't last that long. :) 25K tire , no thanks. Yes 5-6 years, but you are correct they will probably never make it that long .

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

So here we are discussing the “ENDURANCE” tires. Finally that part is clear. GY can tell if a tire failure is from road hazard or not. If not they pay for tire and damages. No reports of this happening. 2 years 7 months is long enough time. I agree its about the Endurance, buts its still a Goodyear tire, and we know about other Goodyear tires, and their STELLAR reputation . If you say so at 2 years ,and 7 months. I have to believe you know a little more about tires too get all giddy about these young tires . Lets jump up ,and down when they have aged for about 5 years, got a few miles ,and sun on them , etc, then lets see how they are holding up.

RE: Goodyear Endurance long term review.

I am hearing a lot of background noise and nothing in black and white to back it up. Anything posted here or any other forum would be purely anecdotal. I think they are an improvement over past tires but certainly not perfect. I agree , they have already surpassed their big brother the G614's . But its pretty crazy to jump up ,and down about how STELLAR they are on a 2*1/2 old tire. Lets get all giddy about them in another 3 years or so.
