RE: How fast do you drive with camper on? .

I always set the cruise at about 62-65. Above that and the wind resistance kills mileage. I average about 12mpg with an AF1150 on a 4500 Sterling dually.

RE: Arctic Fox Roof

I spoke with Northwood a few months ago about this very thing and they said to put them anywhere but use self leveling sealant underneath every contact point and on top of those points.

RE: Another noobie question.

Mine automatically selects which source to use. If plugged into shore power, or driving, the DC option runs, when I'm boondocked, it selects propane. You can override it manually and choose, but I don't.

RE: are insurance rates higher for 1 ton trucks vs 3/4 ton

Not sure about the insurance, but I can tell you that the REGISTRATION fee, at least in the state of Texas, is 4 times the cost.

RE: New Cooper tires behavior

Is 80 PSI really considered low??? What do you recommend?

New Cooper tires behavior

I just installed 6 new Cooper tires on my Sterling 4500. These are the 19.5s. I was replacing my old Dynatracs. The Dynatracs only had about 12K miles, but were 8 years old. I only use the truck for TC stuff generally. I never had a problem with the Dynatracs but the 4 rear wheels were "drive" wheels, different from the front "steer" wheels. Now,at the advice of the tire dealer, the new Coopers are all steer wheels, so that I can rotate all the tires as needed. BUT... the truck now feels like I'm floating on a bubble. It's the only way to describe it. And, when you hit the brakes it feels VERY unstable. I've got the tires set at the same 80 PSI. The dealer said that's normal and that the new tires would feel a bit "squirrelly" until I put about 500 miles on them. Has anyone else dealt with this and if so, did it improve? I find it strange that the more expensive Cooper tires don't seem to drive as well as the cheap Dynatracs. Thanks for any and all advice as always.

RE: Any confessions? (Stuck in the mud)

what surprised me was how he used the elasticity of the rope and gave it a hard jerk. I was sort of panicked when he started rolling, thinking he was going to snap the rope or pull the hitch point off. Very impressive result though.
