RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

OK. I ran the new Carlisle CSL 16s 550 miles at about 70-75 mph I aired them up to the max 110 and they heated up and stayed under 120 psi for the whole trip. No issues. No wobble. I had two VERY tight turns where the trailer tires were just almost pivoting and there was no issue. I am going to put about 1,000 miles on them in a week or so. Hopefully nothing to report again!!! So far very pleased... Wow! You =really= must not like having money by towing that fast. Slow down to 65, or less, and you'll likely pick up 2-4 mpg. Slowing from 65 to 60 (old tires) picked me up almost 2 mpg with my old Komfort. Lyle Yes I saw a SIGNIFICANT difference in mileage on my first trip at 65ish to my second at 70-75. I think I got 11 mpg driving 65 and 9 mpg driving 70-75.

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

Lots of good opinions here. I appreciated the feedback on this thread.

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

Curious why you are setting to max. Your FW should have a recommended psi . It does. It came with F rated tires that had a max psi of 100 I replaced them with G rated tires that have a max psi of 110 so I went with the tires max psi rather than what the trailer sticker specified based on the factory equipped tires

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

Most TPMS manufacturers recommend high pressure alerts at 125% of cold pressure. You are way under that. 10-4 thx!

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

Max cold inflation is before you roll and before the sun hits the tire. This is good in all conditions. Once set correctly there is no reason for concern. If you have a drastic change in elevation or climate, feel free to reset the pressure again the next morning. Roger Wilco thx

RE: Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

You are well under temps that would be of concern. Does your axle weights require the MAX of 110# ? gawr 7,000 LB each axle gvwr 15,500

Max Pressure Cold vs Hot Pressures - How Much Is Too Much

My Carlisle CSL 16's have a cold max pressure of 110. I installed a TPMS the same day I bought them. I read up on these tires and there was nothing about a hot max pressure from Carlisle. I contacted Carlisle and they said there was no "hot max" specified. So on the maiden voyage with them, I watched the temps rise and rise above 110 to just under 120. The tires on the sunny side were uniformly higher than the ones in the shade side understandably too. I read elsewhere that a different manufacturer emphatically states on their website regarding trailer tires to NEVER bleed down HOT tires. So it begs the question, how much hot pressure is too much? The TPMS system instructs to set alert levels that are pretty high. What do you think is an acceptable pressure level hot relative to the cold max?

RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

uhhhhnn...any ST tire can make those kind of miles. Come back after 15k-18k miles or so and give us a report. These newer ST load G all steel carcass tires are hands down better than the run of the mill load C/D/E poly carcass tires as far as long term use goes. I'spect those CSL Carlisle's will match other steel ply carcass load G tires. Oh I hear you. I'm just posting a play by play of getting some new trailer tires because Im a nerd like that... :) I'll be putting about 2000 miles on them here shortly and hopefully have nothing again to report. My main reason in posting was due to the lack of threads on the net about these tires and I was hoping to create some content that would be returned for other thru a search so they wont have to do so much legwork like I did, especially since Sailun did us the unfortunate favor of messing up their 2021 run of tires thus removing themselves from the favored position of being the easy button of the RV world for awhile

Tyler Texas RV Park - Bushmans RV Park

Just south of Tyler a few miles. Absolutely one of the cleanest, most upscale RV parks Ive ever stayed in. VERY well run. And the ownership also owns Kiepersol restaurant and vinyard nearby which I would put up against ANY five star restaurant ANYWHERE. Five stars for Bushman's RV Park

RE: Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

My 2012 F350 crewcab DRW has a 37-gallon fuel tank. Apparently, the OP has a short bed SRW truck. Adding more fuel capacity to the truck will also increase the weight of the truck and decrease the capacity he can carry on in the bed. Before adding any additional fuel capacity, weigh the truck and trailer to see how much room you have for the fuel weight. Ken Amen to that. In my youth, I ran out and got the largest aux tank I could find and dropped it in the bed of a Chevy 2500 Duramax crew cab long bed. No thoughts as to what a 200 gallon tank of diesel would mean to me other than the fact that I could drive to the moon and back. I was eager to fill it up so I did on the way home and saw what that did to the suspension and handing. Then I penciled it out and saw that 200 gallons of diesel was 1,420 pounds, not counting the weight of the tank, and that this was probably "a bit much".. Youth... Good times...

Where are the Carliles made? They are made in China

Articulating TV Wall Mount For A Corner

Anyone have any recommendation or warnings about TV mounts? I have a SIDEWALL in the bedroom that has a plywood backer and I am going to mount a TV to it but it has to articulate 90 degrees FROM the wall after it is extended so I can see it from bed. Any pointers towards or away from any brand or type?

RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

Got them mounted up today. Sidewalls are as stiff as a drill sergeants neck. They look great. Putting them on the road tomorrow.

CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

Due to a dozen different reasons related to politically contrived supply chain problems, good manufacturers suddenly moving from china to vietnam so they can turn a good brand into a bad one, unavailability in my size, etc, etc, I chose a set of four new Carlisle CSL 16 tires in ST235/80R16. G Rated, 14 ply rated, 81 mph rated M, all steel body, and from what I read it is the highest load rated tire in the Carlisle RV trailer line. Sailuns, even before the vietnam issues, were 75 mph speed rated L, so LETS SAY the CSL 16's are TECHNICALLY BETTER just for giggles. Tomato tomatto. I'll be mounting them on a new set of Raceline RCL 935 B Defender TR wheels that are rated for lots of weight too because I apparently hate having money. My 5er has a GVWR of 15,500 and a GAWR each axle 7,000. Since I don't see much on the interwebinators about this tire, I'll post a review since I'll be putting 1,500 miles on them immediately. Hopefully the review will be "They're tires man. Why are we talking about tires so much?"

RE: Sailun Tires

The OE tires that came on my trailer are Goodyear G614's. They've been good tires but double the cost?More like triple the cost, I've been seeing well over $400 for them. And if they made them in my size, I would have gladly paid that for them. Ive never had a trailer tire blow out, but YouToob is filled with videos of RV people that had simple tread separation, and the side of their trailer looked like an 18 wheeler full of Chinese whoopee cushions plunged off The Golden Gate Bridge and landed on their fender flare.

RE: Sailun Tires

Bayley; I scrubbed the internet to find out from multiple forums the following information: Of reported Sailun failures on various forums, the following dates codes were reported: 2320,3520,4020,4020,4120. I found reports of three other failures where no date code was provided. All of these were Vietnam tires. I went to my local tire shop last week and the Sailuns were date coded 2621 from Vietnam fwiw. Therefore, I would hope that you are right. Perhaps 2021 tires are GTG, despite the natural fact that 2020 Sailuns have more cumulative miles and therefore more opportunities to fail. Time will tell. I went with Carlisle CSL 16 instead. G rated. 81 mph rated. 14 ply rating. Its all a gamble. All tires today are trash, especially trailer tires. Leave it up to the Chicoms to ruin the ONLY reliable G rated trailer tire on the market.

RE: Sailun S637 Suddenly Impossible To Find

What is your actual load on your tires? What size and load range came on your RV? So the trailer is a 2022 Cruiser South Fork 3850BH and it says in the sticker that the GVWR is 15,500 The tires that came with it are F load rated and says 12 ply rating but then it also says the actual number of plys and they add up to 8 From what I understand, the Sailuns are G load and 14 ply rated. I just dont want any problems and am willing to pay for the insurance they would cost
