RE: first time towing

Brettmm92 Nice tip. I agree with Lwiddis. I was taught to use the same gear going down the hill that I had to use going up the hill. It's a real pretty drive, so enjoy the view.

RE: Life of a trailer slide out?

I agree with Dick B. especially on a smaller trailer like a Lance 1985 or 1995. We don't put the slide out until the trailer is level, disconnected from the TV and jacks have been set. While I don't have any experience with cable slides, I can see more problems with them than the rack & pinion slides. Sometimes while traveling and only spending one night someplace, I won't bother deploying the slide. Because our side is very small, our trailer is still fully functional. As far as a slide's life cycle, keep it lubed and inspect for loose nuts and bolts. Go camping and enjoy.

RE: Small Travel Trailers

I'm towing a Coachman Freedom Express 192RBS with a 03 Tundra with a 4.7 liter motor. The TV has 200k miles. I have put over 35k miles on the TT, in the last 3 years without a problem. We wanted a small TT with tandem axles and a small slide. The foorplan was very important to us along with a three burner stove, large frig, and two LPG tanks. Bryan

RE: Goodyear Endurance tires?

I've had the GY Endurance tires on my TT for the past two years. They've worked great and haven't lost a pound of air pressure over that time. I'm going catch a lot of flack for this next comment, but unless you increase the weight of your TT, I wouldn't run the tires at 80 psi. All you will do is wear out the center of the tire sooner. In my experience, my TT feels more stable when the weight is spread out equally across the entire tread width rather the center 1/3rd. Now, some will say OMG you'll have heat build up by running less than maximum air pressure. I bought a heat gun from Harbor Freight and check the TT and TV tire temperatures every time I stop, and have never a problem. Your TT was designed to run with tires inflated at 65psi and that is what I would run.
