    TT Tires

    If you change the tires to a higher load range, make sure the rim will take the higher pressure. The maximum air pressure will be stamped on the back of the rim.

    Sailun tires

    If you are going to need new rims for the higher pressure, consider going to 17.5 inch rims and H Sailun tires. The OD of the 17.5 tires is the same, or may even be less than,the 16 inch ties. We did this, and feel much more comfortable. Your tire weight capacity no longer should become a problem.

    Sailun tires

    Simpletire.com has the best prices on Sailuns, and free shipping. You won't be sorry with Sailuns.

    Extra Propane Tank Transport Safely

    Remember, when you carry propane tanks, even in your unit, the volume/weight of the propane may limit you from some tunnels, bridges, city roads, etc. The higher the volume, the more restrictions.

    Running water pump-

    The pressure switches on most of them are very easy to replace.

    Sailun tires

    Another vote for Saliuns. Only 10k miles, but the commercial boat hauler that launches and retrieves my boat has the highest praise for them, and he makes sharp turns backing boats into tight storage spaces. Simple Tire has a great price on them. When I replace my tow vehicle tires, it will be with Sailuns.

    Sailun tires

    I second Simpletire.com. I can get them locally (in Maine) for less than $200 at a commercial tire store.

    Sailun tires

    I upgraded to 17-1/2" rims and Sailun H rated tires on my 5th wheel about 6k miles ago. No problems. Haven't heard of anyone that has problems. The person who hauls my boat for me has Sailuns on his tractor and trailer. He recommended them highly.

    DW wants an oven

    We have an Atwood Wedgewood oven in our 2014 Redwood. My wife uses it all the time for cakes, cookies, pies, etc. We have baked several turkeys and all have come out fine. The temperature on the dial is off about 25 degrees, but she compensates for it when setting the dial. In our 1990 TT, she baked all of the time as well. She is amazed by all of the negative comments on RV ovens.

    Anybody here know New Mexico well?

    I'll second Hidden Valley Ranch.

    Rim Rating on Prospective 5r

    The Westlake 17.5 H tires are only 62 mph speed rated. Sailun makes an excellent H rated tire.

    Air Blowout, Winterize Kit, or Both?

    If you have a black tank flush, there will probably be water trapped between the hose connection and backflow preventer valve.

    "This Is What Campers With Pets Want"

    I agree that vaccination certificates should be required during registration. We stayed at one site where the neighbor's dog showed many symptoms of Bordetella, and yet they let it run loose throughout the campsite. Our dog has been vaccinated for this, but many younger dogs are not. Glad to get out of there.

    My Life is Happy Chaos - Advice Please :D

    One thing I would do is try to change the dog's diet. A non-farting dog makes a better companion in a small trailer. Then I would spend time cruising RV dealers to figure out what you really want. If you are buying used, I'd have an inspection done before I would buy it. Watch out for dealers as they want to sell, and may tell you your Subie can tow something it can't.

    Remember, hand guns and long guns are too different things and have different rules.
