RE: New Tires - too many options

Hey GS my current Michelin’s are doing well compared to the last set! Don’t wear like iron like yours but mine ride better. Is the better ride based on fact.....or opinion? :B

RE: New Tires - too many options

Think you'll make it to 200k? No....I run commercially, and the DOT regs state no less than 2/32nds on drives and no less than 4/32nds on steers. They were about used up... This was on my previous truck, a 2014 RAM 3500 Tradesman Crew Cab DRW w/LT235/80R17s.

RE: New Tires - too many options

Plus very hard to believe , especially out of a Michelin. They usually weather crack long before that, at least the ones I made the mistake of running . Maybe I should post up some pics of my 154k Bridgestone DuraVis R500 HDs.....

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

I have been out on a long run, and have not had much extra time to frequent this thread. With that being said.....continue to remember Kathy and family, as October 18th marked the one year anniversary of the death of Jim. time flies.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

The truck may get totalled. Or, perhaps just buy it back from the Ins. company, if the price is right. Salvage title? Don't care! In some instances with a buyback from the insurance company, the unit retains an intact title...

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

I discovered that my little 5X8 ATV trailer needed new wiring. Now I need to replace the amber side lights, if I can find ones that will fit the space. I'll stop at Tractor Supply this afternoon (I bought the trailer from them) and see what they have. Not sure if you buy much stuff online, but this eBay seller is outstanding. They have more trailer related stuff than Carter has liver pills....

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Right in the middle of a heat wave, the cooler in our ground source heat pump decided to take a vacation! It may be that due to parts not being available, we will have to have a complete new unit installed. I hate to think of the expense, but the thing has been doing fairly well since it was installed along about 1991. the joys of home ownership... You got off unit (outside compressor) died around March of this year. It had done us well though, as it was the original unit when the house was built, so, at 19 years old, it really owed us nothing. Since contractors will be contractors, some of our ductwork was cobbled up. We had EVERYTHING replaced. the only thing we re-used was the register covers and the electrical wiring. $6,000.00 is working much better than the old unit, and we have noticed substantial savings on our electric bill.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Well, we got the snow last night , just a skiff. 34 degrees this morning. What a great start for the first day of summer here in Montana :R Got the furnace going as well as the fireplace, and small space heater . These fifth wheels are NOT the best insulated . The snow should make changing out that WIF sensor easier than using that hodge-podge brush on electrical ****. :B

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

While strange thoughts were running through my mind last night at bedtime (a common occurrence), a way to firmly tie down the portable garage occurred to me; perhaps the spiral dog tie outs would work better than the re-bar stakes. I could put one at each corner, and tie the garage frame to them with 1 inch ratchet straps. That spiral screwed into the ground should hold much better than any stake! They aren't all that expensive, I could go to an RV dealer and get the awning tie downs (same thing as the dog stakes, I think). That way, all I have to do is make a new door out of a plastic tarp. Yeah, I'll give it a try. Feeling lousy today, might get the lawn mowed this afternoon, might not...

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

GS, you must be on the road, racking up those miles. Be safe out there my friend. I sure dont envy you when we have these terrible road conditions. It has been another TERRIBLE week behind the wheel. I am surprised my windshield is not as thin as a sheet of paper with all of the wiper action it has received. :B I left out Monday from the plant in Somerset, KY to our dropyard in Byhalia, MS....after unloading two trailers, I then left out for Muskogee, OK with a 2019 GatorMade 35+10 gooseneck trailer. Overall length of the trailer is 53 feet.....hitched to my truck, the overall length was 71 feet. I *think* I was over legal length in a few states. :h I did get to squeeze in a second run to Byhalia again. I made it home Thursday. beautiful bride of 24 years and I had a yummy dinner date at Olive Garden in Richmond, KY. Trailers include: 35+10 hydra-tail 30,000 lb GVWR (10,400 lbs) 25+5 30,000 lb GVWR tri-axle (8,200 lbs) 14’ 14,000 lb GVWR tag dump trailer (3,840 lbs) Trailers weighed in at 22,440 GCW was about 33,300 lbs. The overall length of the 35+10 is 53 feet. The overall length of the 25+5 is 38 feet. Attached to my 4500, the 35+10 makes the combo about 71’ in length. One can tell how the 35+10 dwarfs the 25+5 that is loaded on it. Below is the 71 foot long combination.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Had an enjoyable run *sarcasm* to Omaha, NE last week. I shut down in Concordia, MO on day one and woke up to -5F temps when I went out to start White Lightning the next morning. About 4 hours later....I delivered in Omaha, NE in 0F temps. Due to a screwup by a salesman at a FoMoCo dealer, I earned an extra $938 in revenue for delivering one of the two 30+5 gooseneck trailers from Omaha to Yukon, OK. Seems as if the FoMoCo salesman delivered the WRONG truck to a Knapheide dealer, and the WRONG truck was at about 80% complete with a service body install on a new F-550. That truck was scheduled to leave town that evening with one of the two trailers I delivered. All in all...I survived the trip, and White Lightning did well.
