RE: Load range E--ST Tire

E-rated tires are max 80psi.

RE: Need new tires

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin.

RE: Traded in our old fifth wheel, bought a cougar

......Make sure the PDI is the most thorough you have ever seen. Talking to other Cougar owners it seems some units are sale ready when they hit the lot and some are not even close. Hold your payment until you are satisfied that the unit has been fully prepped and is ready for use...... Ditto. A good PDI should take about three hours.

RE: Tires- Tires - Tires

I don't know about Cooper, but the Sailun or GY would be my choice.

RE: Tow vehicle tire advice

I would only use E-rated tires on that vehicle.

RE: Tire Advice

Power King and Trailer King have the worst rap in the larger sizes. Carlisle gets good mention. GY Endurance gets the nod in your size.

RE: Certainly not very welcoming.

Their site, their rules. You can choose to participate, or not. I find good info here, regardless.

RE: Military Campgrounds

Typically those types of benefits go only to retirees and some special cases like disabled vets. If anyone with DD214 can participate, reserving these very limited RV spaces will be next to impossible, so I would not support it.

RE: Motorhomes with 19.5 vs 22.5 tires

My old 1996, 36' gasser with a tag axle had 16" tires and handled fine. Perhaps I didn't know what I was missing.

RE: Tree Fell onto My Fifth Wheel

Look closely at your gap insurance policy. Some are only good for the first five years or so.

I've found that parks can go dumpy after meeting whatever standards their "sponsor" requires.

RE: Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

I don't worry about it. If it doesn't register, I get an invoice from the state and pay it then.

RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

I can't imagine they'd affect the springs negatively. The only issue I see is they're shown supporting the axle inboard of the spring perch/u-bolts, which is contrary to axle mfgrs. requirement not to "jack" on the axles.

RE: Carpet vs laminate or planking

Have someone activate each slide while you observe/measure the carpet to bottom of the slide for adequate clearance. If any drag across the carpet close enough to the subfloor, you'll likely drag across any vinyl or plank flooring.

RE: Blow outs and tires

Stories of RV tire blowouts, mostly on cheap, Chinese tires, are legendary. Best advice I can provide, is get your rig weighed ready for travel, and ensure your tires are rated for the load. Adjust psi up (but never above the tire's maximum) or down, consistent with the load table. If you need a G-rated tire, Sailuns are highly recommended. In the E-rated range, the GY Endurance excels. LT tires are not generally used where ST tires are specified.

RE: fan in circuit-breaker box is cycling every 10 seconds

Yep, they normally run on a longer cycle, like for minutes at a time, or stay on if the electrical load is high. You're probably going to have to contact the panel mfgr. to do a troubleshoot. I'm going to make a WAG that its location below the fridge has something to do with it.

RE: DMV issues

If in FL you can set up your legal domicile in Bushnell using the Escapees services.
