RE: Tires LT 225/75R16 load range E

I also like Michelins, use them on almost all my vehicles, but needed to replace tires on my class c before a big trip in 2014 and Michelins were very hard to find due to the recall mentioned above so I bought Toyo HT's. VERY happy with them and, like the M's, they are winter rated so legal for winter trips.

RE: Downsides of Towing? Newbie concerns

We have had pop ups, TC's TT's and 4 years ago we bought a small 21 ft Class C (24 ft bumper to bumper) so we would not need to tow. However, on our first major trip, a month in Utah, we often would have liked to have had a small 4x4 to go exploring back roads and do some off road. So I sold an F150 I rarely used and bought a 2003 Tracker 4 door and set it up for towing. We just got back from our first trip, 5 weeks in Yukon and Alaska. We towed the Tracker 9500 kms and put on another 1500 exploring with it. Easy to tow, about a 1 mpg penalty in gas mileage. MH is on a Chev 3500 chassis with the 6.0. I found I could back up a bit. If we couldn't find a drive through camp site, we would drive straight in with toad attached. If everything lined up straight, I could back out. With my back up camera, I can tell when the toad front wheels start going sideways, just a quick few feet forward to get it back in line then continue backing up. We also found that my wife could walk beside the toad and hold on to the steering wheel through the window and that helped. You do need to be backing in a straight line, otherwise it is easier to just unhook, which is easy if you have a good towbar. Another hint: I found it easier to hook up when on a slight uphill grade. That way I could release the e brake on the toad and roll it backward until one or both tow bar arms locked, turn wheels to unlocked arm and drive MH forward gently. Worked great. All in all, towing a toad was definitely worth it.

RE: Chevy 2500 HD 6.0 question

Try some Water Wetter or other brand coolant additive, I think I used Royal Purple Ice, made a difference in my Class C with the 6.0
