RE: Need tire inflation by weight for Sunitomo 719 tire

sorry that was no help for you. i agree that running them at max is your best option.

RE: Need tire inflation by weight for Sunitomo 719 tire

i did a search for 'Sumitomo Tire Inflation Chart' and got several hits. If you scroll down to the bottom you'll find a phone number and physical address for the company. This link includes a tire inflation table. Scroll down a bit to see it. Hope this helps.

RE: Got forced into MS 365

another option is to install the stand alone version of MS Outlook 2019. no subscription.

why don't you just use the G-Mail app for those accounts?

RE: Prostate problems

another possibility would be the UROlift device, and or the PAE. the literature claims TURPS is the "gold STANDARD" but I consider it barbaric compared to these other procedures. I get my generic saw palmetto from Amazon, much cheaper than those brand named ones. Don't know if terazosin has been discussed here but I have been taking that for years. bumpy Never heard of those to be honest the EuroLift involves no cutting and supposedly shorter recovery times but my urologist says the prostate has to be no larger than a certain size and of a certain shape.

RE: best route, West to East?

and if you want to avoid the long EB pull on I-80 east of SLC up and thru Parley's Canyon you might consider an alternate that's not nearly as steep. Go north on I-15 from I-80 to I-84. follow that east back to I-80. a bit longer but much easier. our rig was a 40' gasser towing a jeep SUV. we made it but I found that climb far more difficult than Donner Peak in CA or any of the pulls in WY.

RE: best route, West to East?

I-70 thru Denver has the Eisenhower Tunnel climb and descent. I-80 has the EB climb over Donner Pass and the EB climb over Parley Summit east of Salt Lake City. all are very doable and there is a much easier bypass around Parley Summit. we headed back to Chicago from San Jose in August of '21 using I-80 in our 40' class A gasser towing our Jeep SUV. the EB climb up Donner Pass was a lot easier than the WB descent a few months earlier. the RV's cruise control actually held a steady speed going up. and the EB descent from the summit was a total non-event. but in hindsight I should've taken the I-15 bypass for Parley Summit. we made it to the top but at a crawl. a lot will depend on the weather, road conditions (construction delays, etc).what you're driving and your experience driving that vehicle. you might want to get a copy of the Mountain Driving Directory https://mountaindirectory.com/. I have that book and it seems that there are afew more grades to climb on 70 than 80. Thoughts are US50 to Fallon then 95 to 80. there are. i forgot about Vail Pass (west of Eisenhower @10,600') and a 5-mi descent into Mt. Vernon canyon (7800') east of Eisenhower. the first time we drove east on I-70 from CA was in the mid 80's in a 25' class A. wife was driving in those days. she took it thru the tunnel and down the mountain. it was September and bright sunshine on the west side of the mountain but as we exited the tunnel it waa snowing and, further down, raining. she did a great job getting us down safely but it was nerve racking for a pair of Illinois flatlanders. in those days we were young and stupid. our motto was...how hard could this possibly be? lolol

RE: PayPal Money Request Scam

Not a reflection on PayPal. This junk is all around. Nothing looks legit. Maybe drop the AOL. agreed but we dropped paypal after their little TOS event where they were gonna fine people who posted "disinformation" (AKA a different opinion). and eBay is no longer about small, individual sellers. hasn't been for a while. since i no longer use eBay I no longer needed PayPal.

RE: PayPal Money Request Scam

we no longer have a PayPal account. or an eBay account for that matter.

RE: RV insurance claim - flood

depends on your policy but if you can't live in the RV while it's being evaluated or repairs you're still going to need a place to stay regardless if those expenses are reimburseable. call your agent.

RE: lighter weight four down toad?

Yes that's exactly what my calculations revealed. The published 11,030 is the figure I found from Lichtsinn RV. A 2022 Honda CRV curb weight is ~3600 lbs. + 90 lbs for 15 gallons gas + ~40 lbs (strictly a guess) for towbar and bracket would give me a gross weight of toad vehicle of 3730. Well under the 4,220 lb. figure. I'm an old pilot so I'm used to figuring weight and balances. Now, back to my original query. I'm looking for a four down toad in a certain size and weight parameter. Any suggestions?? i’m an old pilot as well. we used to tow our ‘03 2d Jeep Wranger (TJ). tows really EZ with no speed/time/distance restrictions (unlike other mfgs). Jeep made the TJ between 1997-2006 with curb weights that are less than your max weight limit. the TJ models include an extended length version (still 2d) called “Unlimited”. they had curb weights around 3800-lbs IIRC. later model Wranglers started getting heavier bur i have no personal experience with them as we still have our ‘03.

RE: lighter weight four down toad?

the basic rule of thumb is that the max weight you can safely tow is the LESSER of the following: - the difference between the GCWR and GVWR. both are published numbers by the RV mfg. if you can't find the GVWR you csn get a good approximation by adding the GAWR (gross axle weight ratings). - the weight rating of the hitch - the weight rating of the towbar. is the 11,030 the GVWR of the MH? assuming it is then the maximum weight you can tow,is 4,220-lbs. and that assumes that your MH weighs no more than 11,030-lbs when fully loaded for travel. fully loaded includes everything in the MH...food, fuel, water, LP, clothes, supplies, food, people, etc. it also assumes that neither axle is overloaded...each axle has it's own weight ratings. a 5000-lb towbar would be fine and when flat towing there is negligible tongue weight (no significant downward pressure on the hitch). but the 11,030 is a weird figure. GVWR's are usually even numbers like 18,000, 24,000 or even 19,500-lbs.

RE: lighter weight four down toad?

what is your GVWR, GCWR, weigjt rating for your hitch and towbar?

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

what does the owner manual say? we always leveled first before deploying the slides.

RE: leveling blocks

we only used our jack pads when we were on soft ground. we carried 4-1.5", 15x15 blocks with a hole drilled in one corner into which I inserted a long piece of cord. i would place the block under the jack and then level. the cord made it EZ to retrieve the pad when breaking camp. i also carried a few smaller pieces for those really out-of-level spots.

RE: Leaf Spring Failure - Replace the Others?

i'd replace the other because, a) if one side is bad maybe the other side is also bad. (that's why I always replace both headlight and other bulbs, shocks in pairs, brakes in pairs, etc). and b) because the leaf springa are not of equal weight bearing load. i'd also have your shop examine the "new" spring to see if it's a keeper.
