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.

RE: RV Parks vs Campground????

Calling some campgrounds an RV Resort can be quite a stretch. Kind of like putting lipstick on a pig.

RE: Tire pressures during temperature swings

According to every tire mfgrs. info, you set pressure when the tires are cold, i.e., not having been driven on, and leave it alone.

RE: Portable generators question

My Champion 3400 gas model works well. Is it better than anything else, can't answer that. For the low price and decibels, it works.

RE: how to leave home

Down here in Fl when my snowbird neighbors go back north or to Europe, they get pool and lawn services started, leave the AC set on 80 degrees, turn off the water, and arrange with a neighbor (or hire someone) to check the house on a regular schedule.

RE: which brand tire

GY Endurance for 15" wheels, because Sailun doesn't have that size.

RE: RV Tires

I've not seen or heard of any Westlake failures. I have them on my boat trailer and no problems, but not a direct comparison, of course. Your best bet in ST tires for your needs are Sailuns or GY Endurance.

RE: Batteries - Diesel Trucks

I wouldn't arbitrarily replace them without first load testing them. I got 23 months on two Motorcraft batteries and they crapped out; guess the FL heat is tough on them, or MC batteries are ****. Dealership replaced them no questions asked as they were warranted for 24 months.

Sailun Tires on Sale

For anyone thinking about upgrading, it looks like Simple Tire has Sailuns on sale today for 10% off. I have no affiliation with Simple Tire or Sailun.

RE: Leveling question.

Auto level is the only function on my rig that actually works 100% of the time.

RE: Frustrated with my RV purchase.

I'm happy you feel better now, but seriously, some of those things aren't need by everyone, and the list price of a new unit would increase unnecessarily.

RE: Diesel fuel prices - have they been dropping?

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday seeing $2.93 for diesel and $2.31 for regular gas down about 10 cents each.

RE: I think Winter arrived

That's awful. Going to get to my neck of the woods tomorrow. Low of 49 and only high of 70. Will have to put socks on with my flip flops.

RE: Tell me your horror stories (Diesel)

4 bones a gallon here. :( A wee bit overtaxed in CA, eh?

RE: Tell me your horror stories (Diesel)

I just put nearly $10k I my 2005,6.0 Ford. After thoroughly researching newer Fords, it seems they all have problems, even to the point that previous naysayers about the "notoriously bad" 6.0, have changed their tune. Apparently, many of the recent 6.7 motors have been repaired on warranty, and if one has to do it on their dime, it's way more expensive to repair than older motors. Once a 6.0 has been "bulletproofed," it supposedly will run another 200,000 miles with no problems. So, I kept mine.
