RE: Need new tires

Thanks much for the serious answers, especially from south of here in BlackDiamond. I appreciate it. I’m just looking for a “square” deal.

Need new tires

I need new tires for my 3/4 ton Silverado (see my signature). Looking for recommendations for both towing and for general use. LT 245 75/R17E. I am usually towing approx. 7000-9000 lbs. With diesel fuel approaching $6/gallon in my area I won’t be towing too far from from home anytime soon. Because of that I am not willing to pay top $$$ for the best tires anymore. My goal now is to be safe and to not get stranded somewhere. Your helpful thoughts are appreciated.

MaxxFan 7500K

When I bought our brand new Outdoors RV 24RLS three years ago, I remember wondering why we would need automated remote control roof vents + fans, but I figured it’s a cool feature that won’t cause problems. Boy was I wrong. Just returned home from our first 2022 “shakedown” trip this past week. All is shipshape, EXCEPT for the MaxxAir 7500K roof vents + roof fans. The remotes all have new batteries, and none of the remotes work. I am not able to raise the vents…nothing works. During our five nights out we listened to each vent “chirp” at us every few minutes throughout each day and night, and every so often green lights in the ceiling assembly would light up brightly and then go out. I have re-read my manual, researched online, and now I am writing this missive, hopefully to get good advice here. My next step will likely be to contact the RV Dealer where we purchased it for possible (expensive?) service. Right now I believe I would just like to have these space age roof vents removed and replaced with the good old fashioned, uncomplicated manual vents and fans that always worked for us in the past.

RE: Should I re-winterize?

Winterize. Only takes 10 minutes and you’ll sleep better tonight.

RE: Not much posting

I have been a member for quite a while now, and I still like to check new posts in my favorite categories every few days. Life is different for all of us now, but I find that there is still a variety of new posts on the “Roads & Routes” and the “Parks & Campgrounds” sections worth reading. Because of health issues we are not able to get out much now, but I still enjoy hearing what others are up to with their RV’s. Kind of like vicariously traveling through other travelers. One change: back in the day the humor in the “Humor” section of “Around the Campfire” was actually very humorous, so much so that I would regularly pass on truly funny stuff to friends and relatives. I haven’t found any of it worth passing on in a good 10 years now.

RE: Remembering my best physical condition

The summer of 1975 (age 25) when I was on the Fire Service Coeur d’Alene Interregional Fire Crew out of Wallace, Idaho. They flew us to fires throughout the West. Our crew boss was a HS football coach and he trained us like we were prepping to play in the Rose Bowl: when we weren’t on fires we did trail maintenance, etc. in the mts in N. Idaho. At the end of each non-fire work day he would have us back at our base camp doing circuit training outside...I remember bench pressing a small telephone pole, me on one end with another guy on the other...running laps for time, etc. When we got called out to big fires they would truck us as far as they could into burn, and then we’d march the rest of the way into the actual fire, sometimes for miles over hill and dale. We would “March” just short of a run the whole way with full packs. We would put in 12-14 hrs on the fire line, and then walk out the same way we had come all the way back to base camp, get 6-7 hrs of winks, and then go back and do it again...and again, sometimes for days on end. Best shape I’ve ever been in. Way better than my years on the football team, even with August “daily doubles”.
