RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires Here is the Toyo chart. And here is the Continental chart

RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires

Okay perhaps it is the speed difference, but nonetheless SGTJoe's post that all of the same size tires have the same load table is wrong. Find the table for your size and model and use that.

RE: Tire Pressure Chart For Continental Tires

I can't seem to find a psi chart for Continental tires. Anyone on here that can steer me to one. Sorry, but Tire Load Tables are NOT specific to a brand of tires. They are published by tire standardizing organizations such The Tire and Rim Association (US based) and are the same regardless of the manufacturer. You can sometimes find portions of those tables published by tire manufacturers, but those are only reproductions of what the standardizing body published. So to answer your question: ANY table will work. Just make sure the table you use is appropriate to the application. There will be difference based on what kind of vehicle and the intended service. Then why do two different Michelin tires of the same size 295/80R22.5, the ZXA2 and the H Coach have different load tables, and why do my Toyo's of the same size have yet again different tables? Maybe that works for car tires, but it doesn't work for large truck/RV tires

RE: Impression on new coach

Just remember you Diplomat or Dynasty, you list both in your post is actually a REV product so you would do much better asking for Fleetwood or American coach people to help.

RE: Aladdin tank monitor

Reprogramming the system is easy. You can get new sensors from Cat-Con, they are easy to replace. Replace or clean the sensors, and leave the tanks empty, go to the Aladdin screen and find system setup, enter the code 1218 to get into the calibration. You will see what the raw value is reading for the empty tanks, enter that value on the appropriate tanks, then go to full value, it will give you a formula depending on the depth of the tanks, most are 12", calculate and enter that value. Done. I agree the Aladdin readings for the tanks is not completely accurate, but it has been working okay for us in 12 years of full timing in our coach.

RE: Aladdin System (Update)

So this doesn't tie into the Aladdin system? No, SeeLevel does make a system to tie into the Aladdin but the connection is about 120 bucks more and I didn't think it was worth the extra $$$. I never could get the Aladdin to calibrate correctly and I think it was because of the cheap phone cords they used. It also appeared the sensors were placed in an awkward location so I trashed that whole mess and went with sensors OUTSIDE the tanks. Unlike inside sensors, there's nothing to impair their reading. I put 10 gallons in each tank and they registered pretty accurately. I'm happy with the system. $179/system and $20/wiring/loom/switch....Dennis For the most part I don't have trouble with my Aladdin system, other than having to clean or replace a sensor a few times in over 10 years. And the location of the sensors in our coach makes it very easy to change out. But, the quest for accuracy from the Sealevel system intrigues me, although I think I would still want to use the Aladdin. Thanks

RE: Air brakes on Towed

M&G is great and we have used their system on 4 different tow vehicles over the last 20 years. However, they are limited by the number of vehicles it fits. The folks that have installed my M&G's recommend Air Force 1 for the other vehicles. I had the normal M&G system on my 2014 Ram 1500, but when I got the new 2019 Ram 1500, there isn't enough room at the brake master cylinder for the original system, but they have another system that uses a cylinder mounted in the engine compartment that pulls the brake pedal, still hooks up and operates exactly the same way, but fits way more vehicles.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

We have been using M&G for 6 years and about 60,000 miles in 2 different vehicles. Very pleased!

RE: Continental Tires PSI rising 20

Mine go up at least that much. What is the problem? They are designed to do it, and before TPMS you never knew or even thought about how much they increased.

RE: Blue Ox Tow Bar

One more pro Blue Ox. I have installed at least 6 base plates on many different vehicles with no problems whatsoever, and have used Blue Ox tow bars for over 25 years. We have been to the factory, talked to their customer support and even had them use our new vehicle as a template to develop a new base plate for a new model truck. As to the nuts on a wire, how else would you get the nuts to where they need to be?

RE: Garmin GPS

My comment about the 780 seems to be ignored. We have had a 760 replaced by a 770 and now also have a 780. Yes, we run both the 770 and the 780, and the 780 is significantly improved over the 770, much easier to create routes, better interface, much better.

RE: Garmin GPS

We now have a 780 and like it very much, a huge improvement over the 760.
