RE: Question about tires..smell? Temp?

https://i.imgur.com/Q256Q5Zl.jpg Hi all, Have a question about tires..Tires are hot at 80, 82 psi returning from cold mountain trip thru local desert, traffic and home. Rear tires noticably hotter than fronts and had a smell like hot rubber. Posted are the weights on the axels for my 23u thor. I notice I'm about 700lbs below the limit of the rear axle. Usually that axle is loaded about 600 lbs lighter. No smell, not so hot. Is there a danger? Factory michelin tires, 2016 date. Don't recall smelling this. Tires not painful hot but hot. Touched the rims, axle shafts..not the source of heat. It's tire flex. This is the most I've loaded this. E450 chassis, 2017 model 14,000 gvwr. Usually carry a 300 lbs motorcycle on back never a worry. This time a 470 lbs bike and about another 50lbs lbs for the more stout rack tying into frame. Any thoughts? Thanks CbPlease be aware that adding 520 lbs behind the rear bumper has an amplifying effect of increasing the weight on the rear axle of about 780 lbs.

RE: Heavy Class C Tire thoughts

Sorry to say but all E rated tires of a certain size by any brand have the exact same max load carrying capacity when inflated to 80 psi. Actually not. You can see from the Michelin load tables that the dual application of the C-Metric 225/75-R16C has 1000 lbs. more per pair or 2000 lbs. more per 4 rear tires at 80 psi. 5950 vs. 4940 lbs. per pair. https://www.rvsafety.com/images/pdf/michelinloadandinflationrvtruck.pdfBut the Michelin 225/75-R16C is not an E rated tire. You are trying to compare apples to oranges.

RE: Gen-set Troubles

I had this exact same thing happen and all it was , was the ground wire was corroded. Simply scraping it clean and reattached it and generator ran like normal. Just a thought…….If the ground connection from the generator to the RV chassis frame was high resistance due to corrosion or rust, your generator would not start or would at least turn over very slowly. Once the generator is running, the chassis ground connection is no longer required for the generator to keep running once started.

RE: Gen-set Troubles

My best guess is that you have a failing electric fuel pump. Replacing it along with a new fuel filter will cost a lot less than a replacement generator.

RE: Generator tripping breaker

When running your generator, what loads are you asking the generator to power when the generator circuit breaker (generally 30-amp) trips?

RE: Minnie Winnie vs. Spirit

Remember that Class C RVs are built typically on Ford or Chevy chassis. Therefore options such as adaptive cruise control and lane departure assist are those offered by the chassis manufacturer and not by the builder of the motorhome body such as Winnebago.

RE: Winter Time Storage

I fill my tank with premium for the last trip of the season and add the appropriate amount of seafoam. I have a modes solar panel system that maintains the house and chassis battery. What advantage do you think you get by filling your fuel tank with premium fuel? It does nothing for you except cost you about $0.60 extra per gallon. The only thing premium fuel does is raise the antiknock margin needed for higher compression engines something you really don’t need in a non-running engine while your rig is in winter storage.

RE: Electrical issue

I once received a valuable piece of advice from a FAA inspector in charge of making sure my aircraft radio shop followed the rules. He said that if you don’t know how to do what your doing correctly then don’t do it.

RE: Electrical issue

A RV 30TT receptacle is used only for RVs. It is for that use only. It is 30 amp 125 volt. Then how come an electrician wired 220 vac to it?
whemme 07/02/21 06:52pm Class C Motorhomes
RE: Electrical issue

So it is OK to ignore the indicated 125V embossed on the connector? https://www.myrv.us/electric/img/TT-30%20P-R.jpg width=600 That embossed voltage doesn’t mean a thing if the circuit is wired incorrectly to the outlet. Too bad that that particular outlet can be connected to either 110 or 220 vac depending on the intended function. It should be 110 vac for RV hookups.

RE: Onan 4K generator

I know you probably already checked this, but, make sure the fuel level in your tank is enough to reach the pickup tube for the generator. That problem will not cause the starter motor to fail to crank. With not getting any fuel the generator should crank but just won’t start.

RE: Maintaining air pressure in your tires

The tire stem valve that you are referring to is known as a Schrader valve.
