RE: Tire Advice

Power King and Trailer King have the worst rap in the larger sizes. Carlisle gets good mention. GY Endurance gets the nod in your size.

RE: Certainly not very welcoming.

Their site, their rules. You can choose to participate, or not. I find good info here, regardless.

RE: Military Campgrounds

Typically those types of benefits go only to retirees and some special cases like disabled vets. If anyone with DD214 can participate, reserving these very limited RV spaces will be next to impossible, so I would not support it.

RE: Motorhomes with 19.5 vs 22.5 tires

My old 1996, 36' gasser with a tag axle had 16" tires and handled fine. Perhaps I didn't know what I was missing.

RE: Tree Fell onto My Fifth Wheel

Look closely at your gap insurance policy. Some are only good for the first five years or so.

I've found that parks can go dumpy after meeting whatever standards their "sponsor" requires.

RE: Can toll booths read transponder w/C overhang?

I don't worry about it. If it doesn't register, I get an invoice from the state and pay it then.

RE: leaf spring broken..trailer legs?

I can't imagine they'd affect the springs negatively. The only issue I see is they're shown supporting the axle inboard of the spring perch/u-bolts, which is contrary to axle mfgrs. requirement not to "jack" on the axles.

RE: Carpet vs laminate or planking

Have someone activate each slide while you observe/measure the carpet to bottom of the slide for adequate clearance. If any drag across the carpet close enough to the subfloor, you'll likely drag across any vinyl or plank flooring.

RE: Blow outs and tires

Stories of RV tire blowouts, mostly on cheap, Chinese tires, are legendary. Best advice I can provide, is get your rig weighed ready for travel, and ensure your tires are rated for the load. Adjust psi up (but never above the tire's maximum) or down, consistent with the load table. If you need a G-rated tire, Sailuns are highly recommended. In the E-rated range, the GY Endurance excels. LT tires are not generally used where ST tires are specified.

RE: fan in circuit-breaker box is cycling every 10 seconds

Yep, they normally run on a longer cycle, like for minutes at a time, or stay on if the electrical load is high. You're probably going to have to contact the panel mfgr. to do a troubleshoot. I'm going to make a WAG that its location below the fridge has something to do with it.

RE: DMV issues

If in FL you can set up your legal domicile in Bushnell using the Escapees services.

RE: TIRES,,,,,need 4

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin.

RE: Why not jack trailer under the spring plates?

When it's said not to jack under an axle, it really means directly on the tube. How else would one place a jack if not under the spring pack?

RE: Hurricanes and traffic jams

No worries, Gov. DeSantis just ordered to hurricane to depart for Martha's Vineyard.

RE: Class ‘A’ motor homes FORD chassis.

Fortunately, not an expensive repair.

RE: tire time

Based on your specs, an E or F-rated tire will do, so GY Endurance will work. If you want to upgrade to a G like Sailun or Hercules, and adjust psi downwards per their load range chart, you should be able to stay below your wheel rating.

RE: Hurricane coming

Current track shows it well off the coast of FM (we're in Port Charlotte), but, remember Charlie in 2004 that took a hard right turn and surprised everyone in and around Punta Gorda. Try to determine wind direction and park it head first, jacks down, water filled and hope for the best.

RE: Possible delamination

Not sure this answers the question, but front and rear "caps" are often not laminated walls on many RVs, so it all depends on what he has. Bubbles sometimes appear on laminated sections, and the solution is regluing or replacement.

Tire Recall

NHTSA Recall ID Number : 22T012 Synopsis : Shandong New Continent Tire Co., Ltd (SNC) is recalling certain Rolling Big Power Repulsor M/T Tires, size 285/75R16LT with DOT date codes 1418 through 1622. Due to a manufacturing issue, the sidewall may separate from the tire. As such, these tires fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 139, "New Pneumatic Radial Tires for Light Vehicles." Sidewall separation can lead to tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. SNC will replace the tires, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification. Owners may contact Shandong's customer service at (86)0539-265-5299.
