RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

Here is another view on the subject: RVTravel emag. Not exactly written in a crystal clear manner but he is saying, I think, that most ST OEM tires are operating too close to the load capacity of the tire unlike most trucks.

RE: Power Converter

They are frequently but not always near the fuse/breaker panel. Try pullling that out and looking behind it.

RE: Need file repository for sharing large files

And be extra aware that none of these online services is safely archival. The companies go out of business and/or just drop the service giving users a few days at best to save their material. Yahoo groups is the latest example but there are lots more. So back up everything on a hard drive. That being said I use Pbase at $23/yr and designed for images. Folders can be password protected and once you figure it out it is easy to use.

RE: Stabilizer Jacks

I use a cordless 1/2 inch DeWalt drill motor and a jack socket to operate our stab jacks. As a note I tried a cheapie Harbor Freight drill and operating the jacks flatlined the cheap battery PDQ. Not a problem and I'm 70. But it depends on your state of health. My thought on electric jacks is there is more to fail and go wrong on the road.

RE: White Sands National Park

The best times to see the park is either early in the morning or late afternoon. The sloping sunlight brings out the features of the dunes. https://pbase.com/photoburner/image/170421925.jpg width=400 As you can see from this shot near sunset. Also sliding down the dunes is a big hit with the kids so bring something they can slide on.

RE: White Sands National Park

Camp? Really, since when. There is hike in camping but no RV camping that I know of. And it is a national park as of a month or two ago.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

Well against my better judgement I'll fess up: LT tires in 16 inch wheels. The ST arguments most seem to be 'appeals to authority' not really based on data. Of course there isn't any real data set but most of the LT people seem to have a lot of good experience with the tires. No one said that they tried LT tires and had a bunch of blowouts. And lastly my bad experience with ST tires, with a TPMS and driving max 63 mph. All my blowouts have been on paved roads, frequently interstates. Not bouncing down smoe gravel potholed road. I'm just tired sitting on the side of some interstate fighting with the ERS for 45 minutes or more, or worse taking the tire off and putting the spare on.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

Well as the original poster, and new to this issue. I want to thank everyone, on both sides of the debate, for all this info. Which has helped me make up my mind.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

LOL why would certain folks, ie marathon users, be more likely to file a complaint over Michelin users? It does not compute. If you said that for every one complainer there are ten out there that could complain. That I would take as a good guess. Meaning actually 1560 vs 70. Also there are probably 10 or 50 Michelins on the road compared to marathons

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

So marathon vs defender= 156 complaints vs 7. Could be exponential but impossible to say with only two data points. Endurance is zero so far.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

The builders of ST tires advertise them as having stronger sidewalls than like sized LT or P tires. To counter that, one would have to get a tire engineer to unequivocally dispute that so called “theory”. Until you can explain why they catastrophically fail at much greater rate than passenger or LT tires, I'll assume they are lying.

RE: Trillium Lake Campground, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

USFS "Facilities: The campground offers dozens of single and double sites for tent and RV camping. Some first-come, first-served sites are available, as well as some fully accessible sites. Parking surfaces are mostly paved, but some are gravel. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. An accessible picnic shelter is adjacent and can accommodate up to 30 people. Parking is available. An accessible amphitheater within the campground can be reserved for day use and can accommodate up to 30 people. Educational programs are held on weekends throughout the summer." Here is a hint, to get that info I highlighted the name of the CG in your post, right clicked it, selected Search Google. And the first hit in the list was this. Try that next time. The reservation site will have individual stats on each campsite. Or use google maps.

RE: Can't get on internet with wife's computer

Malware? Use other computer to get Malwarebytes, put the file on a thumb drive. Install it on her computer and run it. That's my first step for things like this.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

How fast? 63 mph is my usual max speed. We sit in the right hand lane most of the time. Let me point out those blowouts occurred over the last 40 years or so. I was sold on the ST= stronger sidewall story all that time. A lot of thee blowouts we had happened during our popup years when tire heat is the killer IMO.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

I just posted over in the NROA forum to see what their opinion of moving to 16 inch tires is. Seems like there is a lot of room in the wheel well. But $110 each for the tires plus, at a guess, $100/each for new rims is running up the cost. If you think that's expensive check out what it costs to repair the damage from a blowout (if it can be repaired at all). I don't have to check it out, I've had plenty myself. The worse was on a fiver that trashed the wheel well and did some electrical damage. And I was using a TPMS at the time which gave no alarm. I complained to the company and their reply was, "OH they don't work on blowouts". Never had one rip out the plumbing like one fellow reported.

I got a couple of replies, it is a common change for the 25Y owners to go to 16 inch. So I should be OK there.
