  1. Sailun tires

    I second Simpletire.com. I can get them locally (in Maine) for less than $200 at a commercial tire store.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Anybody here know New Mexico well?

    I'll second Hidden Valley Ranch.
  5. Rim Rating on Prospective 5r

    The Westlake 17.5 H tires are only 62 mph speed rated. Sailun makes an excellent H rated tire.
  6. 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.
  7. "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.
  8. 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.
  9. Guns

    Remember, hand guns and long guns are too different things and have different rules.
  10. A little late, but both compressors I own draw a lot more power when they start up.
  11. Where to buy dog food, etc?

    For high quality food, Tractor Supply is a great place to buy dog food.
  12. Unless the EPA has changed its rules, the MCLs for inorganics are based on drinking 1 liter of water every day for 60 years resulting in 1 excess case of cancer in 100,000 people. If the levels are low, except for some of the inorganics, a taste or two of the water should not harm you. Just my thoughts, take it or leave it. Best to be conservative though. ,
  13. Which propane gauge to buy?

    I'm old school. I only turn on one tank at a time. When it is empty, I switch tanks and fill the empty one. I use my IR temperature sensor to check the level on a warm day.
  14. Silicone spray on slide outs?

    My manufacturer recommends using Pledge.
  15. Broke Leaf Spring - Mobile Repair Help

    The springs on both sides of one axle broke, and Coach Net arranged a tow with a big wrecker to a spring shop. The spring bundle on my 5th wheel is pretty common, and the spring shop had them in stock. They modified the springs a bit to strengthen the spring pack, and I was on my way. The tough part was buying 2 new tires that were consumed by the broken springs.
