RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

No one here has said Goodyear... I'm currently running Goodyear Wrangler Duratac now with about 25k miles and still looking good. I suspect I might get 40k miles out of them. My priorities were around load range E with decent traction on snow.

RE: TIres, looking for long wearing, all weather load range E

... It seems that I go through tires at about 25k. ... 80% highway driving, 20% highway towing. I just don't seem to get good tire wear. Any ideas? OP, let me guess, even with your listed highway percentages, I'd bet you do a fair amount of driving into the mountains and back? Plain and simple fact is that mountainous driving is much harder on tires, expect shorter tire life. Add in the weight of these trucks on mountainous roads... I do live in the mountains, just west of Denver, and have experienced the same short tire life. The OEM Michelin tires only lasted 22k miles. Went with another tire after, forget the name, but again, about 23k miles. I'm currently running Goodyear Wrangler Duratac now with about 25k miles and still looking good. I suspect I might get 40k miles out of them. My priorities were around load range E with decent traction on snow.

RE: Connecting Satellite Thru Outside Jack

Just install your own weather proof coaxial plate and connect it to a new inside coaxial wall plate. Simple and there are no splitters or other items that could filter out the signal. That's what I did.

RE: Where do full timers go out west to escape the heat?

As mentioned, the PNWet, far north CA, OR, WA and ID. If you're going to try and stay on the coast, be prepared to be turned away without reservations, so get them if you can. Also on the PNW coast, be prepared for wind, overcast and cold even during the summer... but it can be beautiful. Although not necessarily escaping the heat, if you're in OR, make sure and spend some time near John Day, go to the Painted Hills NPs.

RE: Ford pickup recall

https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2019/12/06/ford-pickup-truck-recall-tailgate/4352140002/ Just have to love it! From the article: "Dealers will fix the tailgate frame wiring harnesses and install a new tailgate handle release switch. Owners will be notified by male during the week of Jan. 20." Ford is going to send a guy out to each owner's house to inform them? That's dedication.

RE: Camping near Moab, Utah

Slickrock RV is older but has the best tree coverage if you're looking for shade, also fairly close to downtown. Stayed there a couple of times, once in dead summer, and the shade was very welcome. If there for OHV running, you will need to trailer to the trailheads unless you have a street licensed SxS. Dirt "pads" and gravel/dirt roads. Also stayed at Archview. You can ride OHVs direct from Archview to some trailheads. Archview is further away from town but is nice, I'd stay there again, it is newer so the trees are small, no shade. Has a community fire pit, small general store and attached fueling station. For RV parks in Moab, it kind of comes down to what you are there for with regards to convenience.
