RE: No More RVIA Shows

I dunno, I mean the headline kind of says it all: "RVIA Board Permanently Cancels California RV Show".

RE: valve stems for TPMS

The in tire sensors are the best. True tire temp readings and no valve stem issues.Yeah, work great until you need new batteries. I have the metal stems and no issues, and honestly I'm more concerned with tire pressure than tire temperature. Wouldn't have an internal tire sensor.

RE: No More RVIA Shows

So they're talking strictly about California, from what I read.

RE: valve stems for TPMS

The metal valve stems are a good idea regardless of which TPMS you get. But IMO, and I have the flow-through sensors, save your money on the flow-through sensors. You'll find yourself removing them to add air. The restriction is so great that it takes quite a long time to add just 5 psi. If I did it again, I would get the regular sensors and skip the flow-throughs.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Why not wait until there actually is something to report on, rather than just more speculation based on nothing much new? It's like saying the success of the new airplane will depend on the ability of its wings to create lift. Duh.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Okay, let me see if I have this straight: They're comparing the Taycan Turbo S, a real live car vs a Lucid Air, an imaginary car, vs Model S Plaid, also an imaginary car. Seriously??!! And really, so much fuzz over .4 to .1 seconds, well, unless I'm going to race it for money.Uh, my point was that two of the three cars don't exist.

RE: Seen a Good Movie Lately?

"The Gods Must Be Angry." Did you mean "The Gods Must be Crazy"?

RE: New iPad

Enjoy it while it last I had Ipad once and it slowed down like molases and no amount of UPdates would fix it,,planed OBSOLESENCE fool me once never again https://youtu.be/MKJjLwMUPJI Have Samsung galaxy tablet now works perfect. My phone is BBerry bought new for 120$ few years back,does everything I need. Samsung, LOL. I had an S4 phone and now an S7. The S7 is so slow it’s laughable. Calls come in and it sometimes takes so long to draw the screen that I can’t answer before it finishing ringing. You can literally watch it paint the screen for most actions. It’s the biggest turd. We have an iPad 2 from 2011 that still works though it’s a bit slow and nearly useless for web browsing. The kids’ games still work fine. We also have a 5th generation which is about the same age as the S7 and it works like new yet. As an engineer for a company that supplied chips for both brands, there is simply no comparison in quality demands between them. My next phone will likely be an iPhone.We have a total of 3 Samsung S7's and all of them are quick with no issues. Sounds like you've managed to do something to yours. We've had ours for over two years and they work just like new. Full disclosure though, I do hate Apple products, be they phones, tablets, or MP3 players.

RE: tire pressure

... IMO, better to air on side of caution. Semi tires are at 95 to 110 all the time.Intentional or unintentional pun? :)

RE: tire pressure

I just had the Goodyear Endurance installed 5 days ago. Goodyear recommended and told me to keep the tires AT 65lbs per tire unless I was at MAX LOAD. Do not run tires at MAX LOAD unless at full weight capacityGoodyear recommended it, or the guy at the tire shop?

RE: Lippert screen door opener to Dexter screen door

Yes, the round sliding thingy!!! I bought the lippert one and it is to small for my door. I am going to try to adapt it to my door. I did find some similar posts on the Forest River forums. I will let you know how it works out. Thanks.Yeah, let me know if you come up with something. I bought one, but have no idea where it is now since it wouldn't fit my door.

RE: Lippert screen door opener to Dexter screen door

Are you talking about the sliding inserts with the thing attached that opened the screen door? I wanted one for our door but they didn't make that size. I never could figure out why they didn't. Are they still making them?

RE: tire pressure

Always run trailer tires at max pressure no matter how many axles. ...Maybe if you're running ST tires, but I run my Sailun "G" rated tires at 95 psi rather than the 110 psi that is the max pressure. Makes for a much smoother ride. And with 2000-2500 lbs. per wheel I don't need to run the max pressure. I was just wondering if you only have 2500 lbs per tire, why did the manufacturer put g rated tires on your rig? I agree you probably don’t need to run that weight at max pressure. I’m probably at 3000 lbs per tire loaded.It's a triple axle toyhauler that came with "E" rated ST tires from the factory. They were the notorious "China bombs" and I had two blow out within 2 years. I wasn't about to go back with another set of ST tires, and LT tires would have been okay, but not great. So I went with the Sailun "G" rated tires. When I bought them, they were labeled "LT" tires, but stated on the sidewall: "For Trailer Use Only", and now they're labeled "ST" tires.

RE: Tow mirrors and rear camera

Does the rear view camera also show you the sides of the vehicle and what's beside you? If so, then no.
