RE: Hartland TIres

ST 235/80 R16 E has a rating of 3,420# @ 80psi. What is the actual weight on your RV tires? You simply will not find a better RV tire and it's US Made. 4400 lbs @ 110 psi NOT what I asked. Try this, what amount of weight is setting on each tire? Didn't ask for carrying capacity. Sounds like you have already bought the tires??? yes already a purchase, of course while on the road, Discount will take care of me if decided to change out. they are communicating with me, from the corporate office. no worries there. just concerned of not knowing any history on the Hartland Tire. as far as weight rating, I am in good shape with these according to info. Trailer gross is at 16K, we are about 15400 as a normal full of water etc. so that is less than 4000 per tire, and it had the westlake at 3520. so just more info for more info and thoughts!!!

You simply will not find a better RV tire and it's US Made. 4400 lbs @ 110 psi That's the weight rating "of the tires", not the weight per wheel/axle. And contrary to what was said, unless you're pushing the "minimum" pressure for the weight, at, say, 80psi on a 14pr tire, running them at 80 psi (or something reasonable, less than 110 psi max, if not needed) will no hurt the tires one bit. oops, forgot to mention, Thanks Grit Dog. I don't think the tires will be hurt at 80 or so PSI either, my overall normal travel weight in the trailer is about 15,400 full of water, propane, food etc. I am comfortable knowing there is enough capacity in the tires for the trailer on it's own.

Stated that the Goodyear comparable tire is twice the cost at around $400 per tire. Also stated that at minimum should be kept at what the tire pressure rating on the tire is, (110 psi), but as he said their store can only air up to 90 psi max. Another one of those things that make you go HMMM. Well, already bought, I will deal with it, and all should be good. the compressor I have in my tool box gets me to about 60 or 65 for emergencies, but I will look for another better one. We all have opinions and getting five different people will of course get 7 to 10 different views. my next call will be to the manufacturer, if lucky enough to get info from them. Have a great day.

RE: Hartland TIres

The ST235/80-16" load E are a 80 psi tire. The Load G Hartlands are a 110 psi rated tire. The trailer wheels will need to have a 110 psi rating if you want to enjoy the full use of the G tires. Running a commercial grade all steel ply carcass G 110 psi tire on a trailer at 80 psi isn't the best idea. Hartland ST235/85-16 load G is another commercial grade tire made in china that first came out on commercial trailers in the '15 era. Like other made in china load G commercial class tire they are popular with owners of those type trailers. These tires have a 13/32" tread depth for a long miles of service life vs other ST tires with 8-9/32" of tread depth. Check out other rv forums about Hartland commercial grade all steel ply carcass ST235/85-16 G tires. Hartland makes other size/C/D/E ST poly carcass tires so don't confuse them with the all steel ply commercial grade ST tire. yes these are the "ALL STEEL"

RE: Hartland TIres

Sorry: Size is or was ST 235/80 R16 E 10PR Hartland had ST 235/85/R16 N 14 PR Now that I am home, I will do some more checking. Discount has always been good to me, so if need to change them out, they will.

RE: towing with gm 6.6 gas

Gas HD towing any kind of heavy-ish high profile trailer is going to be single digits unless you only tow downhill with a tailwind. IdaD, I don't want to sound sarcastic, but i get single digits towing downhill with a tailwind anyway!!! and most of the time I get headwind even downhill. so UGH on that, Thanks though

RE: towing with gm 6.6 gas

I have a 2022 6.6 gas, 3500 CC, SRW. As stated above, it only comes with the 3.73 gears, no 4.10. I was a little worried about this, but I am please with performance. I do not tow a heavy trailer. To date, I have towed a 7.5k travel trailer and it towed beautifully. The "tow" mode keeps the transmission from hunting and it is very quiet. Gas mileage is 14 mpg, compared to 10.5 for the 6.0 The new truck is significantly quieter than my 2019 3500 with the 6.0. If you have specific questions, send me a PM Bill yeah but what is the mileage difference when towing.

RE: Residential Refrigerator question

RE: Adding extra batteries - where do I put them?

good point and i will add, if your vehicle is wired correctly, you should be able to plug the trailer in, after starting your vehicle, just in case, and it will charge the batteries. the vehicle normally is designed to charge while driving, so put your jacks down and put your slides out while plugged in if you can, of course unhooked. In the meantime, you can also plug the truck into the trailer and give the batteries a little extra umph that may take care of you with the solar panel and get you through the couple days. the fridge mostly is on propane, shouldn't need that much juice. you will know if your truck is charging by turning on some lights, then plug the truck in and the lights get a little brighter. good luck, have fun ! ! !

RE: Adding extra batteries - where do I put them?

we have two group 31 Duracell agm that do us just fine with an eu 3000 is Honda generator. use the generator in the morning a bit and afternoon a bit with a 200 watt solar panel for keeping things up. In the normal days without running generator, we get a couple days without an issue with just batteries, add plenty more with generator. but this is us, we don't have residential fridge and all the stuff that burns up power. And we are conservative. My thought if in your shoes is to pick up a small 2000 watt generator that will keep things charged, add one later if you want to parallel them for a/c.

RE: FIRST TIME BUYER LOOKING FOR OPINION ON CERTAIN MODELS

not to change your mind, but, I see you don't have the Grand Design 337 rls listed. It has a bit more storage space than the 303 and w/d option. We upgraded form the 303 to the 337 and haven't been disappointed at all. The other thing is that with both of my Grand Design fifth wheels, the manufacture has been great with us and even sent a couple small items after warranty had expired. Just my take, I am not endorsing any company. Good Luck.

RE: A tale of two trailers, or prices are thru the roof.

Timmo!, yeah we have 1550 square foot, small and perfect for the two of us. large yard with all the amenities for our RV, parking on both sides of the house, one side for rv including water, sewer and electric, the other side small shop and of course couldn't have it any nicer. we bought at the bottom of the recent downturn, put about $60 into it and rebuilt it to what we wanted and now enjoy it while we are here and also enjoy our traveling home too!. But yet I agree, I could get well over $300 for it, but would only have to pay about $450 to get what we have.

RE: Good Sam ERS Hung Us Out to Dry

well, guess I better put in my quarters worth too. I am not by an means endorsing any company, they all have issues. We have had GS Roadside since around 2010. I have used them on a few occasions, a couple here locally for lockout, about 20 minute wait, once in california for a break wired that was broken, about 1 hour wait, and the two other major issues were a break down and an accident. Both big times they were unable to get us help, I initiated the calls, first and second. the second call was made back to them after I didn't hear back, I told the operator that I would see what I could find locally to take care of my issue. Got there name, took notes etc. once I got r done, I called them back and told them I was sending them the bill. each time I was reimbursed for what was spent. Except the last one, they only paid a fourth plus rental, meals and fuel. that one was over $6000.00 and I got back $1550. I guess my point is that you need to document your issue, names, times, numbers etc. and at least get back your money. for the $80 a year that I pay, I have recouped all of that and more. I do agree that the operators need to be better equipped to handle calls, get help etc. So Marcus, if you're listening, probably not, you need to fix this, and you can, just do it.

RE: A tale of two trailers, or prices are thru the roof.

What do you mean when will an rv cost the same as a home? We paid 70K for our home at the bottom in 2012, we bought our full size fifth wheel, fall of 2019, $55K. there are a multitude of rv's out there well over 100K. :)
