RE: Trailer Springs in Mexicali, Mexico??

Is there a Napa around? Buddy found a spring there while he was on the road.

RE: Wrangler YJ in 12 foot garage?

My sandrail is 3000lbs and I have no issues in my Weekend Warrior. With my wheel base, I only have 1 set of axles on the ramp at a time. I used to haul my rail and 2 quads at the same time, no issue with weight. If you end up with a 5th wheel, handling won't be affected by the weight. I don't have any issues even in side winds of 20-30mph.

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

That's a small hauler. I think just by available space, the bike will be over the axles. With that dovetail, I wouldn't put the bike close to the ramp. Just my opinion on how I would load it.

RE: Placement of motorcycle for towing

Pin weight, or tongue weight, won't change that much with just a motorcycle, independent of placement. I've done all of the weight measurements and vehicle placement. The biggest item to change pin/tongue weight is water or no water. My sand rail is 3000lbs and the pin weight in my 5er is still 3600lbs with the motor/trans hanging 5' behind the rear axle. My water tanks are 80% in front of my front axle and I always tow with full water.

RE: Can I safely tow a Fuel 362 with 2020 2500HD 6.6

Only way to know is take your truck to a scale and weigh it, then do the math. Say truck weighs 8000lbs. GCWR of truck is 20000. 20000-8000=12000lbs. This is the total amount of weight you can tow and stay within the trucks GCWR. GVWR of truck is 9000. 9000-8000=1000lbs. This is the total amount of weight the truck can carry, I.E. passengers, pin weight etc. I don't know your weights or your ratings so you have to plug in your own numbers. If you don't care about tow ratings, that truck will 100% tow that trailer. I moved up to a F350 Dually back in 2006 to avoid any of these issues. I have been able to hook up to any 5th wheel toy hauler I have wanted to since then and not worry.

RE: 5th wheel toy haulers

Adding a receiver to a toy hauler is easy peezy. I have 3 guys in my dune group that have had it done. 1 guy has a 45' hauler with a 4 seat razor on the back.... LOL. He is just waiting for the ticket. It would be for towing a small boat. Nothing that big or heavy. I still have a weight limit to keep in mind. I didn't say to not keep the weight limit in mind, I am just giving an example of what is being done.

RE: Need new tires

I recently learned new air steams were being delivered with michelin tires.. That did it for me. I've already run some R250's on my first TH with good results. But reading that air stream is selling their trailers with LT tires on some has turned me into a believer.. But what I would like to know is why michelin? They make some great tires that Ive ran on my trucks, but why did air steam pick the LTX MS2 225/75 r16? Does it have the most rigid side wall? Wouldn't a A/T or the Rib be more rigid? And why do they say trailers don't exert the same forces to tires as trucks do? Braking is probably more grueling on tires than acceleration. I wish someone on youtube would chop up a bunch of LT tires to compare sidewall thickness's. But sometimes I wonder if the common knowledge "ST's having stiffer sidewalls" was untrue. From watching the guys at Discount try and mount my Rib tires, I would say the Rib for sure has a stiffer side wall. Steel cords vs polyester. LTX is a tad cheaper, maybe that is the reason? Have you ever watched a trailer tire scrub with 3 axles? You don't see that on a truck tire.....

RE: Need new tires

Run LT tires no matter what you go with. Cheap and tires are not a good combination when it comes to tires. Agree on the price, collateral damage will eat up any possible savings. You were a huge proponent of Michelin Ribs, correct? Still feel the same? I have an EXCELLENT tire store I've traded with for 50 years so I'm going to have a chat with my buddies at Western Tire. I still run the Ribs, but only because Michelin pro rates them so well every time I get some ozone cracking. I get it every 2-3 years and then after year 4, it is so bad I am not comfortable. Michelin will give me between 40-65% proration so it is hard to start over with a different brand. I will only run LT tires, but some of my buddies run the G rated tires, ST, that are out there. Sailun is one and Hercules is another. They have blow outs. They blame them that is because they sit in the sun in Phoenix. I agree that is not the best, but these are tires that are only 1-2 years old. Even sitting in the sun, they shouldn't be blowing out that soon.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in garage

Wow. Are you going to Antarctica or something? I would just go buy fuel and/or propane.LOL. Close. The north rim. The highway in has a locked gate. Propane and gas may or may not be available without a long drive. Basically we need to take what we expect to need with us. I hate to waste a day running around after supplies. I once had the propane regulator fail at the begining of a hunt there. Temps were in the low teens, and no propane getting past the regulator meant no heat. I had to run into Flagstaff to get a new one. That wasted an entire day, and a lot of fuel. I now carry a spare. I totally get carrying spare parts. I used to live in Page so I know the area you are talking about.

RE: Carrying extra fuel in garage

I don't do this. I put my extra fuel in the bed of my truck. I carry 60 gallons in cans in the bed and still have plenty of room for wood etc.

RE: Brake controller craziness, advice?

I had some work done by a local suspension shop, had to replace an axle, they found the same thing. Replaced all the wiring with good wires ran on the outside of the tubes. My brakes have never worked so well.

RE: Fresh Water Tanks- Weekend Warrior

weekendwarriorpartsandservice.com They have multiple tank sizes with dimensions. But, an RV shop should be able to weld the tank. Plastic welding is a thing.

RE: Brake controller craziness, advice?

Great. I will pull the old wire out, so I can prove or disprove the issue. I will leave the wire outside the tube as I purchased some nice marine grade sheathed 10/2 wire. This is what I did recently on my Warrior. Ran the wire on the outside of the axle. I also did all new brakes/hubs/bearings/races. Brakes have never worked better.
