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

....snip Since all of us have 15inch rims and need at least LRD tires, LT tires aren't really an option, so we just stick with ST's. I use good year wrangler HT in LT21575-15 on my horse trailer. Load range D. Tire rack has them or any GY dealer can get them.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery???

I took possession of my 2012 funfinder on Nov 15, 2011. The trailer has a AGM "marine starting battery". It's been charged by the much maligned WFCO converter/charger. The battery is still in there, and still holds a charge. My WFCO must be the "only" (LOL) good WFCO in existence, as I have seen it charge at over 14V, also it drops to 13.2 to 13.0 after about a day or day and half. 13.6 is it's mid-level. If the battery is not run down a whole lot, it simply starts out it's charge cycle at 13.6. Here I am, 8 years on, I'm happy with that. As others have said, your discharge strategy needs to be smart. Do some reading on what parasitic draws you may have, and address those if needed. EDIT: I put one of those little voltminder gadgets in the trailer to keep an eye on battery voltage. It plugs in to the 12 cig lighter power port.

RE: Blow out water lines question

How did simple winterization become so complicated?? Shop vacs, turkey basters, air compressors. 6 gals of air space in a steal tank you you think 3/4" of water it will cause damage? Owners manual says drain the tank. PERIOD. You guys miss Elementary since class? You all need to get a hobby! Using the shop vac also cleans out much of the debris in the bottom of the tank that is shed from the anode rod. By the way, I did just fine in science and physics class. Some of us simply like to tinker with our RV's. You'd probably shake your head at the fact I wax my truck once a month too :) And I wax my trailer with a buffer twice a year.:E

RE: Blow out water lines question

I use a Turkey baster with a piece of rubber tubing to remove most of the water left in the water heater after it's drained. Mine has about 3/4" of water after I drain the tank. I get all I can get, and I have never had a problem with freezing and expansion doing damage. After I flush all the debris that I can get out of the water heater, I use my wet shop vac with a piece of flexible plastic tubing duct taped to the vac nozzle to remove the remaining water and debris.
