    Wheel Size

    I just converted to 17.5 Alcoas. I needed to replace the brake drums with 9/16" studded drums. This allows for the "Hub Piloted" 17.5 wheels to center properly. My OEM 1/2" stud drums were "stud piloted" therefore not compatible with the new wheels. I got the entire kit of drums, wheels, lugs etc. from Southwest wheel. I sourced the tires locally. I was a little disappointed with the Chinese "bearings in a bag" that came with the kit. I replaced them all with name brand "Timken" bearings and seals. I went with an 245/70R17.5 18 ply 6200 pound tire. No more blowouts. Wheels and tires will follow me to new trailer when that happens.
  2. Best of luck with the surgery, Randy. You looked like the pain was terrible. Prayers to you that is s successful and the recovery is quick!

    Purchasing Fuel

    As the others have said, this usually isn’t a “Pay at the pump” process.

    How is Nigel Doing

    Glad to hear you are doing well, Nigel. Missed you guys this year at the ECR. Hope to see you there next year...
  5. Why on God’s green earth would you continue to run 16s on this trailer and not convert it to 18 ply commercial 17.5s? Im about to do this with my trailer after only one blowout of my 16s.
  6. The factory installed fridge is 12 volt not 110. The dealer will not service them, only replace. Something like $1200. I think there was a thread not long ago about simple repairs to fix a non functioning fridge. Try the search function.

    DRV accident

    The jaws on the Comfort Ride hitch failed.
  8. Rick - It was very nice to meet you and Mrs. Eieio. Also all of the other new and "not so new" friends! Hope to see you again next year! I got home by noon on Sunday even with the minor setback Saturday afternoon... Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image.
  9. You are one hell of a photographer, Chris!
  10. Good to meet you, Kevin &June!
  11. Where is that, Jim? My company installs about 3000 windshields a year for various vehicles and that is less than the cost for a Volvo windshield glass, uninstalled.

    One trip in the won-ton pulling the 5er was enough for my DW. She came around very quickly to the idea of a HDT. Now she drives it as much as I do, if not more. For her she feels it is far easier, safer and more relaxing to drive than the pickup ever was.

    Amber running lights

    Rick: One of my clearance lights is dim compared to the rest. Do you think that's just corrosion in the harness?
