RE: Rear end ratios

Sticking my neck out a bit as I'm going from memory, but a 3.55 geared vehicle will have less pulling power than a 4.10. But good luck finding, let's say a new one ton vehicle, with more than 3.73 gearing. The reason is the newer vehicles compensate with up to 10-speed transmissions. Back in the day, a 4-speed tranny might have 4.10 gearing in a one ton. Bottom line is any of the newer one tons can handle most, if not all, truck campers sold today, especially if DRW.

RE: Sailun Tire inflation tables

Doesn't matter what anyone else does. You need to adjust psi to the weight on each axle.

RE: nothing seems to be open in pa and Ohio

We had significant difficulty getting into CGs from FL to NY this past month, and I'm not considering the holiday week. Perhaps RV sales truly are up and the number of CGs has remained fairly static. We have found a few that were available, but not places where we would have stayed. Just keep calling around till you find something. For example, we called for the 4th week and lucked out with a recent cancellation.

RE: Endurance failure

"A post like this at the Forest River Forum, probably the same person." Maybe, maybe not. He/she doesn't have the same user name. I'm keeping a close eye on tire posts on several forums. I've seen a few posts about Endurance failures, which is a bit disappointing, since they're supposed to be the cure for China bombs of the same size. Time will tell.

RE: Axle Weight

If your tongue weight is 880lbs or less you should be okay WRT GVW. You still need to weigh your axles, then just tongue, to make sure. TT tongue weight should be within 9-15% of your actual towed weight.
