  1. Thanks for the reply. Money already spent. I'll give it a shot and see what happens. Thanks for the heads up on the valve stems on the toad.
  2. Hello all, I'll be fulltiming on Oct 6th. I purchased the Tire minder 66 tire pressure monitoring system. I was wondering if anyone has used this system and what are your thoughts on it. Looking for pros & cons about this system. The system I bought comes with 6 transmitters. I'll be looking to purchase 4 more transmitters for the toad. Any thoughts on this subject would be greatly appreaciated Thanks
  3. Thanks Trey, It all makes since. Appreciate your help.
  4. Thank you all for your suggestions. Makes perfect sense.
  5. Trey, I take it this chart you posted is not in lbs. So let me retract my statement. 85psi front 90psi rear.
  6. The GAWR for the front is 7500 lbs. The GAWR for the rear is 14500 lbs. So I'm looking at 85psi in front and 90 psi in the rear, according to the chart. Being that these are larger tires, 95psi in front and 100 psi in rear. Would this be a fair assumption?
  7. I just bought a ( new to me ) 2006 Forest River Georgetown XL 326 DS. Getting ready to go fulltime. Before I start loading it I checked the load information chart on the wall. It says for tire size 245/70R19 SF 85 PSI dual rear and 90 PSI front. The actual tires are Michelin 235/80R22.5 XRV. 110 PSI front & rear. I assume the previous owners installed the larger tires to support more weight. The GVWR is 22,000 lbs. Because the tires are larger and before I start loading the MH, should I inflate the tires more towards the 110 psi range? Thoughts & opinions would be greatly appreaciated. Thanks

    Toad

    I have an opportunity to pick up a 2005 Subaru Outback Impreza sport. Manual transmission. It has low mileage and in very good condition. All the information I'm able to gather tells me I should not have a problem towing it four down. This vehicle comes in at a little over 3,000 lbs. which should be no problem for my 34ft. 2006 Georgetown to tow. I'm hoping there aren't any restrictions I might of missed on the towing capabilities of this car. If anyone would like to chime in with some opinions, pros or cons, I would appreciate it. Thanks

    Battery questions

    Well, thank you all for your comments and battery knowledge. This is one topic that I am not well versed in, so all comments will be greatly appreciated for me to figure out which direction to go in. I hope to be boondocking about 65% of the time. I figure to be installing the batteries sometime in late spring.
  10. This fall I picked up a new to me used 2006 Forest River Georgetown class-A . I was pleasantly surprised to find out it has 4 solar panels mounted on the roof. I not that familiar with solar panels but I am learing. So getting to my main topic. The house batteries are 2 6 volt Trojan T-125 deep cycle flooded. I'm not sure how long they have been in there. I'll be full timing next October and would like to replace them in the spring. I'm thinking of going with 2 6volt Trojan T105-AGM deep cycle batteries . I'm looking for some feed back on these batteries, or are there better options out there. Thanks in advance Bruce
  11. I just purchased a 2006 Forest River Georgetown class A. It comes with 4 solar panels mounted on the roof, so my first question is what type of covering should I use for the panels. I live in the northeast (Ct) and will be keeping the MH outdoors, but not totally covered this winter. 2nd question, I plan on working in it this winter so what type of portable heater would you recommend I should use. I don't want to run my propane heater in the MH. I'll be plugged into 2, 14 or 12 gauge extension cords from the house. All comments and help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Labor day weekend. Saturday, shampooed the carpets, washed all windows in & out. Any sugestions for getting wine stains out of carpet.Sunday, raining all day. Cleaned the house top to bottom. Labor day, will wash the MH and then go to family picnic.
  13. Just a follow-up to my post. Last week I had the Roadmaster steering stabilizer installed. The inprovement to the steering is very noticeable. I took it up on the interstate. 18 wheelers-- no problem. Grooved pavement-- no problem. Nice windy day , held its own. I highly recommend this product. Thank you
  14. I just had 6 new tires and a front end alignment done on my 2006 30' Gulfstream SunVoyoger. I'm thinking of having the Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer for class A installed. Has anyone had this installed on their MH. Does it improve the steering capibilite and overall handling? Sure would like to hear some feed back, pros & cons. Thanks
  15. I have a 2006gulfstream sunvoyoger 30' compartments are to small for a spare. Just had 6 new tires put on this week.
