RE: How often..

It seems that if I get 4 years out of trailer tire I'm doing good. Even with very low miles they just don't last. I've been lucky in that since 2004 I've only had 3 blowouts on the highway and suffered no damage to the trailer. I usually spot a bad tire when inspecting them before a trip. Usually it's sidewall or tread bulge but a couple of times the tread just separated from the carcass. I did go to D rated tires but they don't seem to last either.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I heard Carlisle are now made in the USA....I guess TN. Heard it from a tire guy and saw it online too. Nope. I just bought 2 Carlisle ST tires last week and they are made in china. I had to buy 2 of them on our way out of town pulling our TT on vacation and noticed bulges on the tread surface of 2 tires. They didn't have any GY Endurance in stock at the time.:( I bought a Goodyear Endurance last summer and I will bet $$ on which brand will last longer. I've had Carlisle ST tires go bad just sitting there and even with no weight on them as a spare, tread bulge or tread separation on the road. I should add that this usually happens at 3-4 years with very low miles. I will replace as needed with GY made in USA from now on.

RE: Dutch oven recipes

Many times I'll have 3 dutch ovens going at once. One of our favorites is potatoes and onions with kielbasa. We also make mtn man breakfast with eggs, onions, cheese, grn peppers and suasage. BBQ chicken thighs are great. Cobbler is always great and very easy.

RE: Healthy Eating

I heard this on the radio a little while ago. To make chocolate milk less unhealthy health Experts say to add peanut skins and coffee grounds! They didn't say whether to use the food processor or not. So when the grand kids want chocolate milk try it. That is just nasty! I think they just wanted to see if anybody was dumb enough to actually do it.

RE: Ram Short Bed best slideer hitch

I don't own a 5er yet but it is the plan. Anyway I personally ALWAYS look at the spot where I'll be backing into with my trailer. What is so hard about unlatching a manual lever on a slider when you get out to look over your intended spot? I had to get out of my truck to lock the manual hubs for 30+ years. Unfortunately we as a society have gotten so lazy we can't even have manual levers for our transfer cases anymore or adjust our mirrors by hand either.

RE: Need tires on my Ram Tow Vehicle.

Any tire except Goodyear. Can't believe the buck passing the CEO did with their support of BLM, but not LE or Trump. One of the largest freight companies in the US just announced that Goodyear is off their list. From now on I'll be buying nothing but Goodyear tires. The heck with orange man the putin puppet.

AMZ/OIL 75-90 Severe Gear 4 quarts. Use their soft fill container and its full when it pours out!!! You will thank me, the OE lube is JUNK! Amsoils is a complete waste of $$. ANY gear oil that meets the specs for GL5 gear oil will do just fine. Why overpay $18 for amsoil when you can just use $6 or $7 dollar gear lube of any kind?

RE: Need tires on my Ram Tow Vehicle.

The Wranglers didn't last that long, but they were a great towing tire when I had them on my Ram 1500. I just aired them to their max pressure and it handled very well. I replaced them with Cooper ATs which ended up being a downgrade as far as towing was concerned. That was before this newest generation of Cooper tires though. I'm currently running Nitto Ridge Grapplers in a P Metric size and they perform admirably. I definitely understand peoples urge to go to LT tires, but I don't think it's necessary at the weights you're talking about. JMHO Better to have tires that are tougher than needed rather than have tires that are barely adequate being run at their limit.

RE: Air conditioner supply shortage?

I must have gotten lucky when I ordered my new Coleman a/c unit in mid May. I received it in about 1 week with no problems.

RE: New camper coming has nitrogen filled tires

The nitrogen filled tires scam belongs right up there next to the muffler bearings.

RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

You mentioned your dutch oven was pre-seasoned but they do need more. I try to cook some batches of fried chicken or dutch oven potatoes & onions before I use any of my ovens. We've been cooking in dutch ovens for years and they are great.

RE: Help with two Easy Dutch Oven Dessert recipes

Here's an easy recipe. This is for a 14 inch dutch oven. Melt 1 stick of butter in your dutch oven. Sprinkle 1 box of white or yellow cake mix over the butter. Pour 1 can of any clear soda over dry cake mix. Add 1 can of your favorite canned fruit. I like peaches or cherry myself but most anything will work. 8 charcoal briquettes under bottom and 18 on top. Cook about 40-50 minutes. Rotate oven occasionally to cook evenly.

New a/c unit problem

So we decided to replace the a/c on our TT last week. The 23 year old unit was done. I ordered a new Coleman 13.5k btu rooftop unit. Got it up on the roof with the help of my son and lined it up over the opening and thought all was good. When I go inside I find that the old mounting bolts are 3/8 inch x 9 inches. The new a/c unit uses 1/4 inch bolts. Nobody in town carries 1/4 x 9 inch bolts. Who knew. Also the holes in the plenum are spaced 9" apart and the new unit has holes spaced 12.5" apart, what a crock. It took me a while to find some 1/4" threaded rod to make bolts of my own and add some flat stock steel to the plenum with holes drilled to the proper spacing. I looked at several places online that had mounting bolts but none of them specified whether they were 3/8 of 1/4 inch. Finally got it all done and it now works beautifully and much quieter.

RE: Cybertruck may have 1 million-mile battery

How long will it last towing a 10-15k lb trailer? If this "truck" could tow at all. Not long I would suspect because the charge wouldn't last long at all and would have to be recharged very frequently.

RE: 2012 Ram diesel with over 1million miles

regular oil must be good enough. Nice story. chevman Yes it is. Just think of how many billions of miles truckers had already logged before the advent of synthetic oils.
