RE: Load Range G Tires

Well I was running the even more expensive H G114 tires. Running on the Western end of the Ohio Turnpike at 65 MPH, all four tires were running closely for both pressure and temp when a shotgun went off and pieces to tire were flying. Totally threw the tread right down to the steel cord. Tire was 4 1/2 years old and was planning on replacing all during our Winter Down Time in FLA. Morale of the story, even the best tires can self destruct.

RE: problem with electric water heater-Fixed but new problem

Just recently went through this, water just wasn't as hot as usual and over the next few days even less so. Ordered and replaced the AC T-stat and now nice hot water on AC.

RE: Load Range G Tires

If I had G614s on my rig, I'd be comfortable running them for 10 years. I was running the 17.5" G114s and thought I could get 5 years, will last summer one blew like a shotgun going off. Lucky, min damage and GY did cover the replacement tire cost, but opt'd to give the Sailun's a try.

RE: can someone please explain this for me?

With Fifthwheels, it's not so much "How Much You can Pull', but "How Much can You Carry". A 12.5K 5er would have a typical pin of approx 2500 Lbs, which in may cases would exceed you carrying capacity, while that 10.6 would have a typical pin of just over 2K that would most likely be within your specs.

RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

I will actually answer your question: Yes we had two TT, a 24 Ft and then a 30 Ft before we upgraded to a 5er. Pulled both TTs with a 1500 Chevy long bed, it did the job but after a long days travel I was beat. Up graded to a 3500 Dually (got a better deal than ordering a 2500) in prep for a 5er. Now it handled the TT with ease and now where as beat at the end of a days travel. Then came the 5er, BIG difference in towing and handling, but a learning curve in backing. But now would never go back to a TT after towing close to 100K miles with a 5er.

RE: Question regarding residential refrigerators

Just be advised that while Generators in Toy Haulers are Gas, most in standard 5ers run off Propane. A 5500 Onan will run just about everything in the unit, but it will burn through a 40# propane tank in approx 10 hours.

RE: Washer/Dryer worth it?

After our first Snow Bird attempt of 3 months, we order a Combo Unit on our why back North. That was after a few things were ruined because of grease in the CG machines. Put another Combo in our next unit and now have the two individual units and wouldn't be without them. Do a small load every couple of days, no keeping dirty clothes for a week or more before going to the laundry mat.

RE: F450 vs F350 SRW payload

Have a question: If both the 350 and 450 have the same GVWR of 14000 Lbs and the 450 is a heavier truck, don't know by how much, but doesn't it stand to reason that the 350 can carry more pin weight, thus a bigger Fifthwheel??

RE: potty without the rv

When we were pulling a Pop-up we always had a Cap on out Truck with a Port-a-Potty. Got a lot of use. Once we moved up to a TT we just used the facilities with-in.

RE: Flying J and Pilot moving toward B20 diesel?

Actually straight Diesel is getting harder and harder to find. Stations can sell up to 5% Bio and don't have to have a label on the pump. So while you may think you're getting Grade A #2 Diesel you may well be getting 5% Bio.

RE: Heated Mattress Pad

We've been using a heated mattress pad on our Sleep Number for the past 10 years.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

In our Home State of New York any combo over 26K requires an "R" endorsement, but I don't know a single friend who has it an just about all are over that mark.

RE: Trailer upgrade

I agree with Lady RVer, if you go with the Montana and have even the slightest of issues you will hear about it from the DW.

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

D. Steiner, I agree. Watched some folks pull out from the CG we're at with a Cadillac Escalade EXT Pickup. Fairly large TT, no Equalizer Bars or Sway Control, rear bumper of TV almost dragging the ground and headlights pointed at the stars. Would not want to be anywhere near that on the highway.

RE: Can't find black and grey tanks.

Is it possible the unit was setup on a seasonal site and the previous owner was plumbed directly and removed the holding tanks??

RE: ST Tires ???

I have seen Sailuns from three different Countries: China, VietNam, and Thailand. I had planned to replace my G-114 with the same come this spring, but the blow out moved that schedule up, and with the issues we had with the rims and the deal that was offered on the Sailuns with rims, just couldn't pass up the deal.

RE: ST Tires ???

cummins2014: Yes it would have been on both the Montana and Redwood Forums. Part of the reason for the switch: We had two Rim failures, I.E. pin hole in the casting, one which didn't show up for 3 years, so we had no faith in the wheels them selves. A new Distributor in Elkhart was offering an H rated 17.5 Sailun on a new rim, mounted, balanced, and delivered to the Campground for less than the cost of just a GY G-114 and with all the good reports I thought I'ld take a gamble.

RE: ST Tires ???

I might well be the one mentioned a few post back about a blown G-114, it was actually 4 1/2 years old with approx 40K miles on it. Were doing 65 on the Ohio Turnpike, all tires running within a couple of degrees of each other and also within a couple of pounds. Just suddenly "Boom" a pieces of rubber flying. Only took out the plastic fender skirt which I got replaced for free at the Rally we were headed to. Tire was sent to GY, who upon checking sent a check for a replacement. Mean time we installed all new Sailun H rated tires and new wheels.

RE: ST Tires ???

That looks like one of the Bolts that goes up through the Slide Out Frame into the Silde Side Wall.

RE: Experience towing w/ 2WD F250, 2500 or other 3/4 ton

I've used 4 wheel drive more times getting into a tight camping site than I have for getting unstuck. 4 wheel low will get you into almost any site at an idle, nice an slow with full control.
