RE: Tires - The 10 Year Rule

"The one thing that has yet to be mentioned is locale. Heat, in the form of ambient temperature, plays a HUGE role in how long tires last. Obviously tires operating around Phoenix experience a lot more heat history that tires operating around Minneapolis. So if you live and/or operate in the desert SW, you need to use a more rapid replacement schedule than someone living/operating in the northern midwest." Actually I brought this up back on the second page of this discussion, just sayin... "Admittedly Arizona is a tough environment on all tires but these had been meticulously maintained and always run at the correct psi for the loads they carried. Obviously opinions vary but IMHO if your tires are over 5 years old you are rolling the dice... place your bets." Clearly we agree. I have spent long days driving in 112 - 115 degrees and cannot even imagine just how hot the road surface actually is. Conversely as winter appears ready to pounce early this year freezing temperatures, snow and ice are all too common throughout most of Arizona {the average elevation of Arizona is north of 4,000' and we have lots of 9,000'+ passes to negotiate}. The truth is in the real world there is no arbitrary ten, seven or even five year rule per se. One must always take into consideration not only how but where your tires are being used and then decide, as in "Do ya feel lucky punk? Well ,do ya???" :S Here is a shot of us in the "Dead Zone" 30 miles west of Phoenix on I-10: This is the reason I go rid of my C Class 16 in LT tires do not belong on those rigs ........ :B

RE: Tow hall mode

If ford want you in tow mod all the time they would not have given you a choice. They would have made it so.

RE: Tow hall mode

I very seldom use it and I live in the smoky mnts. I now have over 60 grand on her never been a problem. As far as using it to slowing you down I guess there is two ways to think about that. First keep loading up your transmission and sooner or later maybe a repair or number to a brake job I would rather that may self.

RE: Used Tow Bar Values

every tow bar I have seen once you pull forward they lock in place. So braking device has nothing to do with it. sounds like they either never locked or was broken.

RE: Small Class A vs Large Class C

Class A has a real truck frame A C Class is a Van chassis which most have a welded extended frame with LT tire light truck tires 16 in pickup truck. That's why I now have a A class.

RE: Low mileage V10s

WOW I own 2 a 99 now a 2007 never a problem I wonder what forum he heard it on.

RE: Got the MH weighed.

What size tires 22.5 or 19.5 is 22.5 max air pressure it will ride tuft but it can handle it they are truck tires but the other ones remove 3/4 of water that along should come close to that weight and max you air for tire weight carrying weight capacity. If you had a c class I would worry like I had before then I would worry but not a Class.

RE: Leveling Jack Pads/Slide Out Supports

I use jack pads first mine when first time used they press them self's inside of opening so now they are locked on. I like have a larger foot print and some parks require something under jack so not to hurt concrete pad you are parked on. Just say you have a 10 inch you may have 14 to 16 in base it make a difference in sand or gravel.
