Finally went and checked my tires, looks like I'm in the recall. Called my Ford dealer and they don't have a lift to handle the PC so they recommended a nearby RV repair station. Called them and they're checking into what they need to do but sounds like it will be painless.

I don't understand why they would need a lift. I used the RV jacks to raise one side at a time, and they used their axle jacks to pick up the tires enough to remove them. When they finished with one side, I raised the RV jacks; and then lowered the RV jacks on the other side. I don't think I would want them to lift the whole vehicle just to change tires. Sounds like your Ford dealer did the same as mine and passed on the problem to someone else.  nod

Just had 6 of mine replaced by TCI commercial tire center in Dothan, AL. Large bays and very professional-only took about an hour (three guys). They put the best balanced in front, but they all balanced with small weights. I had already replaced one tire so I had them put it as the spare. All-in-all one of the easiest recalls ever. No hassle, no paperwork and did it to my schedule.
 exactly!

Get ready for "somewhat" of a run around! In a recall situation the work that is done is paid for  by the manufacturer but evidently at a rate far under the going retail rate. My Ford dealer said I would have to make and appointment and they would pull the tire codes (will not take my word) and order the tires from Michelin.  This work  will be done at no charge to me.  In each case I had to educate the service managers to the recall since they had not heard anything officially from either Ford or Michelin.

My dealer (hadn't been paid for past work) referred me to Sears. I've been to three dealers; one passed and the other two are checking into the recall. It just came out Friday so we probably got the notice before they did. Per Michelin, the dealers will be paid $20 per tire to mount and balance which may work for them. The replacement tires will be LTX M/S 2(new and improved  Grin) LT 225/75R16. Nobody has given me any "warm and fuzzy" feelings-just hope they will do the job without it costing me anything. I've only got 4200 miles on them.

Do the tank heaters have thermostats? Do they work like heat tapes and can you leave them on when hooked to shore power? Thanks for any answers and Happy Holidays!

When we were returning from our trip to Alaska, we decided to spend one night at a Walmart in Helena, MT and stock up. While setting up next to the only tree on the lot, we met a couple that had just bought a Class A and were waiting to get their title at the courthouse. They were a hoot to be around and we ended up staying three nights to keep them company. We cleared it with Walmart and ended up spending about $150 at the store (definitely not free camping  Grin).

We travel with our mini poodle that doesn't shed and is hypo-allergenic (note for those with allergies or future prospects for our PC  Grin). When we had a Class A, Riley (our dog) sat (mostly slept) on my wife's lap. After we got the PC, I became concerned about the airbag doing some serious damage to him. I bought a safety harness and secured it to the lap belt on the sofa. It took Riley several trips to accept the new position but he now sleeps without any whining during the ride.  Smile

PS: Quite a surprise for both of us when I don't notice him on the top of the chair when I sit down.  LOL

Shipper: I have a yet-to-be-used trailer hitch....so I might just see if there is indeed a service team inside that trailer!  I'm sure a V10 could haul it, no?  -Mike

You might be able to tow it with a V8, but no problem with a V10.  Grin

Now don't be prejudice, that trailer might be the beginning of a great service team (if they can all fit inside)  Wink
