RE: Tire tread is gone in one section!!!

gee just a short while back almost every one said stay away from carlisle tires,now they are there ok?? I,d go maxxis ,just my choice. Yes, 10 years ago. Since then Carlisle has come a long way! I'm on my 2nd set and they have performed excellent! I would step up to a load range "D" and then slow down to no more than 70! There is no reason to run at 75-80 at all! I'm sure the trailer was built to the tires load rating, which means the tire will be maxed out when the trailer is fully loaded! Even my current 11k lb GVWR trailer came with China bomb "D" rated tires!!!!!! When the first one failed after 500 miles I stepped up to the Carlise "E" rated tire and have been very happy. BTW, my trailer has a loaded ready to travel weight of 9200 lbs.

RE: Ford is raising their fuel capacities.

I love my factory 44 gallon tank. If I wanted to push it that gives me a 300 mile range at 40 gallons 6 hours of driving! That's a bit much non stop So I stop around 2-3 hours in and top off and empty the personal black tank! ;) Even my old 97 Dodge conv. van had a 35 gallon tank. It`s about time Ford stepped up!

RE: Tire tread is gone in one section!!!

What brand are the tires? most ST tires are rated for a max speed of 65. that's probably what did your tire in. also 70-80 is a bit fast. My comfortable speed is 67, but my ST "E" rated tires are good for 73 if I remember correctly. what size are your tires. If they are 15" I would step up to Carlisle`s new HD "E" rated tire. they are rated at 86 mph IIRC.

RE: 1956 F100 what can it pull?

Looks great. Should be a great TV when done. Have you considered a gear vendors unit for behind the trans? That would give you O/D as well as being able to split gears! Essentially turning the 3 speed auto into a 6 speed. As far as trailers go! I think something retro would look great behind that, maybe even an airstream!!!

RE: RWD Ford Expedition?

2WD is OK to tow with. I towed my old 6500lb TT with a conv. van. the downside to the Expedition in question is the 4.6L even without much weight it will still be working hard. since you don`t own it yet I would search for a 5.4 equipped 4WD model preferably with 3.73 gears! You are fulltiming so you want to be comfortable driving it over long distances and when in the mountains (if your headed to any).

RE: Is it still a Dodge???

Sorry, every time I hear the word "Dodge" I can't help but think of Al Bundy in the TV sitcom, "Married with Children." If Ram separated from the "Dodge" association, it was probably a good thing to do. I wonder if the negative vibes about "Dodge" on that TV show had anything to do with it? Actually using Dodge on the TV show was good. Dodge was shown to be a hard working mans car! They even went so far as to show the Viper in one of he shows when his Dodge hit 100,000 miles!

RE: TV antenna

On my current trailer I didn't have a cable signal when hooked up to cable. I found they cut the wire to short and it wasn't making connection at the connector.

RE: What a mess

Sounds like when Lucy made the salad while traveling in the trailer! Fun times. And memorable.

RE: 500 miles under 50 mph

Stay on secondary roads and it shouldn't be an issue.

RE: RV Covers

Adco covers also uses Tyvek material. They have covers for different areas of the country. I'm on my 2nd cover. They last about 5 years or more if taken care of and installed properly. I only use mine for winter storage.

RE: Affordable solution to make bunks more comfortable?

X2 on the egg crate foam. I've had mine for 10 years now and it turned an uncomfortable RV queen into a very nice comfortable mattress.

RE: Letting truck idle

It's more of the "hey look at me" crowd. Even back in the day you could shut the old ones down when it was warm out. The only time they were left idling was in the cold because the old diesels were hard to start then, but even then they could be shut down for 10-15 minutes and not be a problem in below freezing weather. The diesels if he last 10 years start and run like gas engines!

RE: RV Park Tenants Rights in South Carolina

Not only all the above, but hen we have another poster asking a question which is muddying up the replies here! Not to mention maybe the OP had a park model with an attached deck/awning! Makes it quite a bit harder to just "move on". I wish they would've came back and said what the exact issue was and what they did to fix the problem.

RE: 1956 F100 what can it pull?

I'd just like to hear that thing pulling up a long hill, bet it will sound awesome!! I was at a rest stop on somewhere on I90 in SD back in 92 or 93. I remember an F350 dually towing a large 5`er going by as I was walking my dog. this thing sounded awesome. I would guess by the sound it had the 460, probably spinning at 3+000 RPM. best sounding thing I had heard up till that time!

RE: Towmax PowerKing blow out pics

....snip.... Not everybody can change to LT tires even if they wanted to. ....snip... Anybody with 14", 15" or 16" ( the majority of travel trailers and fifth wheels ) can easily buy LT tires to fit. Those who choose ST tires do so because they want to, not because they have to. Well, point me in the right direction. I need new tires I have ST 225/75R15 Load range E (2830 lbs) and I've been looking for some LT tires as it's time to replace this year. I haven't been able to find any LTs that are rated to carry that much. I agree. I looked the last time I needed tires. There are no 15" LT tires in an "E" rating.

RE: Towing with Ford Explorer

The V-6 with tow pkg is rated for 5000lbs. no tow pkg is rated for 2000 lbs! they come standard with trailer sway control even without a tow pkg.

RE: Towmax PowerKing blow out pics

Yep, I`m surprised the cheapo tires lasted that long! and that front tire looks low. The front tire in the pic is carrying double the normal load. I suspect that's why it looks low. It's always difficult in a blow out to determine exactly what happened. Did the tire pressure drop (nail, bad valve leaked after using the gauge, etc.) and then shred or did it suddenly blow out then shred or did it throw the tread then shred. Just impossible to tell. Also, the remaining tire suffered some severe overloading after the tire shredded. Is it going to go soon? Actually it has about the same load on it due to the equalizer between the springs. the only way it would be carrying double the load was if the tire was off the ground.
