RE: 5th wheel tires

The Endurance is on my list, wether I stay with 15" or 16 " wheels. If it ever stops raining I'm Installing 6K Kodiak disc brakes, with Timken bearings.

RE: 5th wheel tires

My new FW came with Westlake tires, and I'm just trying to decide how many miles to trust them, before I go to 16" wheels, and tires.

RE: 5th wheel tires

When I go to 16" wheels, that might be one for me since I only have 4" clearance above the tires now.

Looks like a giant gravel parking lot.

RE: New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

I can't help but wonder if nothing will change until they change the physical location where RV's are made. No matter what you do to improve, you still have the same workforce with all of the problems and habits they have. MikeIt's not the workforce - it's managements inability/failure to/just not caring about training them correctly. I've done it with worse - think dirt farmers in Olive Branch Mississippi 2012Coleman, thats just 10 miles south of me.

RE: New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

This thread reminded me of a post a year or so ago, was it Grand design that opened a facility to take all units there to be inspected before delivery. I haven't heard anything since the about this.

RE: New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

As an engineer involved in two transitions to ISO 9001 standard in manufacturing, I consider it a huge leap in the both quality and efficiency. If this company is really interested in these two benefits, I say, "go for it". It matters not what location, work force, or ethnicity is involved. Good solid procedures and inspections protocol make consistent quality products. I totally agree with this statement, because quality control involves multi stage inspections.

RE: Chucking - trouble shooting

I think you need to load it up, and then see if the added pin weight helped. You can't go wrong with a MorRyde pinbox, and Dexter EZ flex set up, and I'm sure it will be an improvement over the Lippert Road armor. If your getting too much squat, and running on the overloads, add air bags to cushion, and level the truck.

RE: Ceramic - VS - Semi Metallic

When converting to Kodiak disc brakes, is it better to go with the slip on rotor type, or the integral hub/rotor. I read somewhere that the slip on rotor was for surge brakes only. Thanks

RE: Fifth wheel suspension maintenance

I would buy a Dexter, or MoRyde product over a Lippert one. Just do a search on Lippert equalizers failing after a year or two.

RE: Longhorn Ranch RV Resort

We stayed at Colter Bay on the south end, and then moved the Grizzly RV in West YS. Colter Bay is very good for seeing the Teton NP, Jackson, and the southern part of YS.

RE: Question about removing black tank

I wonder if there is room between the toilet, and black tank to install a bypass that could be undone if you decided to sell later.

RE: 5th wheel tires

With 33" axle spacing, I would suggest the GY Endurance in your current size, or the Bridgestone R238 in a 245-75-16. I have not seen an unmounted Endurance, but I had Duravis 250's before, and they are a heavy steel tire.

RE: Summer fuel at minus 42

All of this talk reminds me of a few of my favorite shows, Highway Thru Hell, and Heavy Rescue. You have to be pretty tuff to endure the winters up there.

RE: "Death Wobble" updated, fixed

Billstien Stabilizers for Death wobble This is not a fix, but will help. DW is usually a geometry problem from the wheel caster, or track bar bushings.
