    Another Tire Inflation Posting

    I think we had this discussion before... and I think we may be agreeing that the sidewall flex is the problem, and i will also agree that the tires are assembled similarly, but I wont agree that they are DESIGNED the same... you can disagree with me and i can disagree with you, but for all...

    Another Tire Inflation Posting

    a trailer tire is designed with stiff sidewalls, and are not meant to have much flex in them.... if they are under inflated, they WILL heat up more than is safe.... so keeping them inflated to minimize flex will help the tire reach its full life potential... if the tires are cupping, I would...

    PLEASE help.. black water tank smell.. long story..

    instead of using the expensive packets of tank deoderizor (which doesnt usually work for more than a couple days), after dumping, put in 3-5 gallons of water, and pour in a cup full of borax..... borax is biodegradable and safe, and is a much better deodorizer than any other product sold as a...

    RV dump valves.

    the valve is the valve, and the way its activated wont make it seal any better.... when a piece of debris gets caught in the groove that prevents the blade from sliding fully closed, its going to leak... the concept of the electric activators is great, but a more affordable solution is to...

    Inverter Solution Challenge

    very affordable wet bolt kit...

    this is correct... Ive never had a problem with the 1/4" shackle links except on strait bolts when they dont get tightened quite enough, which lets them lay over and wear a little more each time they torque side to side on corners... and as im using the cushion type equalizers, it will soften...

    Suspension Bushings, Centre Point, Wet Bolts - What To Use?

    personally, I think the center point air ride suspension is a waste of money... the leaf springs take the shock loads that the roads cause, and the rubber dampened equalizers keep any residual shock that the springs dont absorb from getting to the trailer frame, AND allow for longer bushing...

    Load Rating

    you NEED to pay attention to the load rating of the tires if you are driving at highway speeds... if you dont get over 40mph, the tires wont develop the heat, nor do they get the abuse that high speeds cause, and so the load range is somewhat less important.... but my advice is that you get the...
