RE: Firestone tires

At the time I purchased mine, I did not need steer tires. The dealer recommended that when the time came, I use a long haul tire for the steer tires that would offer a little more flex and better ride. Guess I was wrong about the FS561 not being a steer tire. I am, however, satisfied with them in the position that I have them. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

RE: Firestone tires

I am using the FS 561 on the drives and tag in an 11R-22.5 size. we have had them on for 2 years now with no difficulty at all. They are not a steer tire from what I recall but have thought about using the corresponding steer tire in a Firestone when time to replace the fronts. I am thinking about a long haul 295-80-22.5 when the time comes. Will look at Firestone and maybe Continental through the FMCA discount or a Toyo, but there is no Toyo dealer near me. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

RE: WHAT dinghy or toad is good to tow ???

We tow a 2015 Chev Malibu and it works well for us. We had a 2010 Malibu before that and neither have had any problems towing. Start it for a couple of minutes, put in neutral, shut off and disconnect 1 fuse (I have a switch that makes that disconnect) and ready to go. Now if you really want something different, a 2012 13 14 Dodge Challenger RT or SRT with the 6 speed manual transmission and V8 Hemi is tow-able 4 down also. When you get where your going, your towed will get you around fast and lots of fun to drive. Hope this may help Happy trails Bert.

RE: Eze Gutter, how to re-adhere? Double stick foam adhesive?

You might want to look at a high quality automotive trim double sided tape from someplace like NAPA. Another thing to look at may be a auto trim adhesive, there are some pretty strong ones out there that are multi purpose. But they may not remove very well. Around the curve of the window is a very difficult place to hold that, I have also tried to do that with limited success. Maybe a little heat to help it hold its form in the curve might help a little. Hope this may help. Happy Trails Bert

RE: Reintroduction, shopping for a 10 to 20 y-o DP

I second the American coach line from those years, just make sure it has the fiberglass roof. You will also find Monaco/Holiday Rambler upper end coaches out there that were of high quality and with some decent prices today. From the 2000 up to about the 2008 were well built. In 07 or 08 they went up to the next level of smog devices and some deem them less desirable from what I read. Newmar made some very good coaches in that time period also. Something else to look at.

RE: Aladdin System

Yes, that black thing is the sensor. Question? Are you changing them because you do not like them or because they do not work? They can be removed for careful cleaning as they do have a very thin clear membrane in them. Ours are accurate and I have cleaned them about every two years. Once calibrated, they do the job on all three tanks. If you have a bad one, they can be purchased direct from he manufacturer cheapest at and look for RV-Sensor. Catcon may also have a level gauge available that could be installed right in the bay. Just another thought. Hope this may help a little. Have a great day Dennis. Happy Trails Bert

RE: RV parks North across bridge from Mackinaw City

The Tiki campground is north of St Ignace about 1 1/2 miles. They have some nice sites and are PA. We have stayed there several times. Some are in the trees and some are in the open. There is also a Casino with a park in Evergreen Shores. If you buy your tickets for the ferry, ask and they have discount packages for other sites on the island also. Straits State Park is limited in site size. there is a KOA in St Ignace and another park called Lakeshore. Hope this may help. Happy Trails Bert

RE: Side mirror replacement

I have replaced the mirrors on our Dynasty, and there is really not alot to it, as long as you have the direct replacement with the proper electric connection for adjustments and heat if installed. It involves 2-4 screws or bolts holding it to the body and an electric connection under the front cap. Depending on the mirror, it can be heavy and awkward and could be a 3-4 handed operation. Depending on the condition of your damaged one, I would save it for parts or reconditioning to sell, depends on the damage. I would have some sealant on hand to put back in the screw holes during assembly. Hope this may help. Happy Trails Bert
