RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

Many don't check any of this out before purchase and concentrate on the fireplace and big TV. Fact is and if I'm looking to buy a DP, I first look in the rear for a side radiator, while most head for the entry door for checking out said TV and fireplace. But then, that's for another topic. while the salesman makes a mad dash for the button to demonstrate the electric awning with the LED lights. :) bumpy

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

If I’m reading you right, the 22 is better and holds more weight. But the 19 has been around a long time and does fine if additional weight isn’t a factor? I think you have to go back to the old chevy P-30/32 chassis to get to units that had too much weight on the front tires/end. I remember some of the write ups the units were overloaded if there was a passenger in the front passenger seat. don't remember if that was a tire or chassis issue however. great engineering, put in a puny front end, put two chassis batteries about as far forward as possible, and stick some balloons in the springs to take the weight. bumpy

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

I would never consider the 19.5s, they won't handle the weight capacity for a true Class A. Bll The Ford F53 chassis was only built for one purpose - "true Class A motorhomes", and for YEARS the 19.5 was the only tire size offered. :h As to the OPs question, bigger is always better. yep, my three motorhomes were Class A and all on 19.5s. when I was interested in moving to 22s I priced the out and there was as large differential, don't know where the price points were the same. bumpy

RE: Flat Towing 2012 GMC Acadia

check out the owner's manual for that year/engine/tranny/etc. bumpy

RE: car towing

I heard 2014.... maybe Remco website can tell you? Remco is out of the RV accessory business and their web site no longer provides any information. very strange. perhaps people towed vehicles 4 down that remco said was OK, but the car mfr. didn't and too many law suits developed????????? bumpy

RE: car towing

confirm in the owner's manual that it gives instructions for towing 4 down. bumpy

RE: Electrical Short Under Sink on 2019 1062 Lance

might be easier to remove the slide then replace bad wire. easier but fraught with danger. mess up alignment, factory will of course blame you. bumpy

RE: Surge breaks on a dolly

Don’t want to discourage anyone from getting brakes but I have used a dolly without brakes for as long as I can remember with zero problems. I have hauled everything from an Excursion to my current Smart car. A DP like I have can stop it if it’s set up correctly. I'm sure there are hundreds/thousands out there with the same story. doesn't affect my decision one iota. bumpy

RE: Garmin RV 780 or 785 GPS

If cost difference is "little" I would get the 785. one less thing to have to wire up, remove to avoid theft etc. bumpy

RE: Surge breaks on a dolly

I don't care about the legality, I wouldn't tow without the brakes. bumpy

RE: queen corner bed vs twin single beds

I looked at Phoenix Cruiser web site today and saw a Phoenix TRX with a double sofa, 22'10" in length. Are any on here familiar with this model or how comfortable those jackknife sofas are to sleep on? every jack knife sofa I have sat/lain on was the work of the devil. bumpy

RE: marker lights to led marker lights

I question towing the trailer at 70 mph also. bumpy

RE: marker lights to led marker lights

so your marker lights work as stop lights? No,Marker lights aren't stop lights. No where in his post did he say anything to that effect. here I changed out my marker lights and found nice ones with correct hole spacing on superbrightled.com. I read once about the light-up time of LEDs compared to incandescent; the LEDs were milliseconds quicker which really made a distance difference when going 70 MPH. May keep you from getting hit from the rear as the LEDs light up faster. I just replaced the cab clearance lights on my truck to LED. They look good and are definitely brighter. If I was worried about folks rear ending me, I think I would easily install some large LED center and eye level light and not worry about the "marker" lights. bumpy

RE: How to start a Tesla at -34C

I see that warm up test was done with the vehicle plugged in. what does this do with range when you run the batteries down and are not plugged in?. bumpy A large number of ICE engines would have the range reduced to zero at that temp because they won't start if they haven't been plugged in. we used to have a light bulb on under the hood on those coldest days. bumpy

RE: How to start a Tesla at -34C

reminds me of my Dad telling us about having to drain the oil out of the vehicles at night so they could pour them back in in to start in the morning. of course that was at Thief River Falls. :) checked and the lowest wind chill was at Thief river falls at -54, with International falls setting the record at - 40 F. (Not windchill) weather only fit for rutabega farmers. :) bumpy

I had twin beds in my first class A. there is nothing worse than rolling against that cold wall in the middle of the night. bumpy

RE: marker lights to led marker lights

I question if changing the marker lights to brighter ones would have any effect on safety. brake lights possibly but not meaningful for the effort and cost involved. bumpy

RE: Windshield wipers travel

as I recall I "fixed" this on one of my vehicles by putting an inch shorter blade on that side. bumpy
