RE: Uneven Dually tire wear

Any one of the opinions could be right, and I'll add another. It's possible the bad tire could have some broken belts, allowing it to expand a bit and wear earlier. Clearly, something is off, so both tires should be removed from that side and be thoroughly inspected. Also, the wheels and hubs should be inspected for alignment/damage.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

Nope, never requested, nor would I ever do it.

RE: Stupid question about tires

One hundred percent nitrogen in non-race vehicles is just another way to relieve you of your hard earned money. Just re-fill with air as needed.

RE: different axel width

As long as there's enough room for the tires to not rub anywhere, I doubt you'll even notice it, despite the naysayers.

RE: RV furniture

Whatever you decide to purchase, make sure it's not bonded leather, because you'll have the same problem in the future. I suggest looking at home v. RV furniture.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

"It does NOT void the warranty! Quit spreading lies." I'm fairly sure someone posted Lippert's official stance about this, or the Forest River or Montana forums.

RE: Wheel bearing advice

I'm in the every two year crowd and we're not full-timing, but it gives you an opportunity to check the brakes. This year, I found one brake magnet wire severed, and I hadn't noticed any reduction in stopping power. I'm reconsidering every year now.

RE: Need new tires

Since it's a triple axle, the mfgr. probably could get away with E-rated tires. If you can still read the trailer sticker it might provide some knowledge. If the wheels are rated for 110psi, you could go with G-rated tires in the same size as the original, but you may not need to based on your axle rating.

RE: Slide out issue

If it's a Schwintek slide, there are a few videos on YouTube explaining the mechanism and maintenance. One thing I learned is to hold the in/out switch for about 5 seconds are all movement has stopped, to synchronize the motors.

RE: Need more tongue weight

This is the first time I've ever seen anyone ask about adding weight LOL. Have you actually weighed? At 15%, or 930lbs based in your numbers, you need to add a lot more than one battery.

RE: Ford tire recall

It's based on a Continental recall; good for Ford.

RE: Tiffin or Fleetwood.

Back when I was considering a diesel pusher in the $200-400,000 range, Tiffin was really the cream of the crop. That's not to say a $750,000 coach isn't better, but that wasn't in my price range.

RE: Is a toad necessary with a small motor home?

Personal preference. It's only needed if you don't want to break camp to go shopping or sightseeing.

RE: Load Range D tire confusion

You're not missing anything. The real question is how much does the trailer weigh? Scale it and make sure a 2200lb tire can handle the axle weight, minus the weight on your tongue.

RE: Carpet Replacement...

My then 2yo Montana carpet looked crappy at two years of part-time use. When I replace it, it will be with a good quality vinyl plank flooring and we'll put down area rugs. I don't see any need to change the slideout carpet unless it gets damaged, too.

RE: What do you do with cat at Campgrounds

Since cats are notoriously fickle and/or stubborn, it's difficult to tell how they will react. One of our three will stay on our lanai at home all day if we let him, the other two not so much. Yet, the one travels well in the TV, and seems okay inside the FW once we stop. We never take them outside because we feel it would train them to go to the door and dash outside given the opportunity, and its hard to corral cats. We've thought of hanging an enclosure off a window so they can at least get some fresh air, but I'm still designing it in my head.

RE: parking on hill

I used to park my Class A and C, and FW trailer on a similar angle for several years; no issues.

RE: Tire Replacement Question

If doable for you, take off two at a time and take them for mounting/balancing.
