RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

Maybe. But I examined the Michelin chart closely and it gives no such information. Most likely the weight of my vehicle is Lighter than the standard use of this tire.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I would say all that is weight dependent. If I was running 30psi it might be different. 5 psi is within the customary 10 percent margin of safety. An overinflated tire only has contact in the middle of the tire. A properly inflated tire has contact the entire width of the tire. What we don’t know is whether the weight chart extends to pressures less than 65psi.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I never even considered that. I need to look at the chart carefully. I would get a smaller tire but I don’t want to deviate from stock. I’m going to fill it to 60 psi cold on my electric pump and Monitor my tire temps.

RE: Can I combine Seresto with any other flea product?

I decided to go on and treat him with K9 Advantix 2 in the hope of killing the eggs and larva. The Seresto only kills adult fleas. I should only have to apply it once. I'm going to put on a new Serasto at 5 months. We'll see how this works before I do anything else.

Can I combine Seresto with any other flea product?

I left a Seresto flea collar on my 55 pound Labradoodle for 8 months. At the end of the 8 months before I had a chance to replace the collar, the groomer reported he had fleas. I immediately replaced the collar with a new one. This was done more than a week ago. Unfortunately, Boo is still scratching. We have only seen one flea, but I'm guessing there must be others since he is scratching. I'm surmising the fleas are due to eggs that hatched that the collar hasn't yet killed. This is concerning, because the directions say any new infestation will be killed in 2 hours. Would I be able to add Capstar or other flea medication to assist the Seresto until his infestation is killed?

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

The tires are rated for 2,755 lbs per tire at 65 psi. Actual loaded weight is 2,320, or 870 pounds under max weight for both tires on the front. The rear is rated for 2755 X 2= 5,510 per dual or 11,020 for both rear sides. The actual loaded weight for the rear is 8,240. That is why it performs better with lower pressures. The chart didn't go below 65 psi, so I extrapolated the weight difference per tire in 10 psi increments in the other direction. The weight increase between 65 to 75 is 285 pounds. The difference between 75 and 85 is an increase of 275 pounds. The difference between 85 and 95 is 325 pounds. Based on the foregoing, I would believe the reduction in weight carrying per tire would be less than 300 pounds per tire for a 10 psi decrease in pressure, or 55 psi. Even that would give me a 200 pound margin of safety on the front, and 1,580 in the rear. So I settled on what I believe to be 60 psi, that will leave an even greater margin of safety.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

I noticed on my last trip the MH handeled very well when the TPMS showed the hot pressure at 66-69 across the range of 6 tires. My pump was showing the pressure at 60psi when cold inflated, but the TPMS showed 55. Winnebago recomends 65, but the loading charts for the tires show a huge margin of safety at actual weights at the scale. I thnk the issue with mine is that it is a shorty at 27', and I surmise the pressure of 65 is for the entire Sightseer line. My gage, the tire pump and my TPMS all give different readings. Actually the improvement in handling at these pressures was nothing short of remarkble. I felt noticably less fatigued. I don't remember the tire temperature, but the alarm didn't go off. I'll check that next trip.

RE: Country Ham

Here is one that isn't too much. https://www.broadbenthams.com/8-9-LB-SEMIBONELESS-COOKED-HAM/productinfo/08/

RE: Country Ham

My mother soaked it in a lard can and changed the water several times before cooking. She boiled it on the stove until it was done, and removed the bone while it was still hot. She did a mustard based glaze in the oven before slicing.

RE: That time of year

I was hoping to avoid winterizing until after my FL trip in a couple of weeks. No joy. Going down to 24 one night next week. Blew all the lines, drained the tank and pink popped the drains. My water pump won't pull antifreeze from a bottle, so I found a pump that hopefully will let me pump through the city water inlet. It will be easier than blowing the lines.

RE: Country Ham

It is a regional delicacy. Can't find it in Florida either. I always take 2 pounds of sliced country ham when I travel. Easy sandwiches, easy breakfast meat, superior midnight snack. I only eat it on vacation, though. Kind of like trying to find beer cheese outside of Kentucky.

RE: Pics: Slide mechansim, Winnie/ Power gear / Kwickee

I just ordered 2 ACME nuts and 4 pins from Lichtsinn RV. Never can tell when I might need them. I was afraid they were going to be unavailable.

RE: Pics: Slide mechansim, Winnie/ Power gear / Kwickee

Is there a to update this slide to make it more reliable? I am very reluctant to use the slide because I'm afraid I won't be able to retract it.

RE: Wind Noise

You will probably have to caulk the noisy opening. i had to caulk around my windshield due to some delam right behind it. I use painters tape to tape over the weep holes at the bottom of the side windows. It makes a huge difference. I remove them in the rain and when I'm not traveling. The blue makes it eaier to remember to remove it.

RE: Upper, lower, and heater hose replacement

Replace the upper and lower radiator hoses after replacing the radiator. That is a rule of thumb that proved accurate in my case. I had all the hoses replaced by an independent shop on my Excursion and received a bill of $1,000. I about fell over. Everything I read say the heater hoses shold be good for thelife of the truck.

Opening behind mirror base 02 Winnebago Sightseer?

I discovered a little delam under my drivers side mirror. I removed the mild steel screws and replaced them all with stainless steel and a generous dollop of 3M4200. The delam appeared to get a little worse. I was wondering whether there is another opening behind the mirror base. If so I will have to either seal AROUND the mirror base or remove the mirror and seal the other opening.

RE: Ford Excursion 2wd

The 2wd will be much lower, have a shorter turning radius and have fully independent suspension in the front. With M/S tires and a Ltd Slip I never had any trouble in the snow. I did put some weight in the back one real bad snow storm. Went everywhere I needed to go. Go on and rust treat the inner rocker panels now. I didn't and they rusted out bad.
