Barry that is a great post for RV tires. RV tires are made differently than truck tires including light truck tires. Our PCs come with light truck tires on them. Mine are Michelin LTX M/S LT225R16 with a DOT date of 1511 (March 2011). We picked up our PC on 11/11/11. My understanding is that because motorhome tires are expected to sit longer than LT tires, Michelin adds more oils to the compound. As one drives these oils work there way to the surface to keep the tires from drying out. When motorhomes sit for long periods of time they tend to dry out and crack. All this being said, Michelin does not give any advice on LT tires on a motorhome, just motorhome tires on a motorhome. Again all this being said, I plan on following the advice that you gave in your post.

P.S. Those who have PCs made in 2012 and 2013 should look at this Michelin recall notice. http://www.michelinman.com/voluntary-safety-recall.page

A buddy of mine went 12 years on a set of tires. Then one day the left inside rear blew going down the highway. The flying tread took out both his gray and black tanks, the tail pipe and part of the side wall. He could of bought several sets of tires for what he paid in repairs. I don't think he will ever go over the 7 year mark again.  I know I won't go pass the 7 year mark.
Penny wise, pound foolish.

Welcome to our merry little band.

In 2013 when we ordered our second PC, the backup monitor was part of the Mirror. I had them install the older style 4" monitor where Ron's use to be. I don't seem to hit it the way a lot of people do.

Hey Sparky,

    First let me say you did a nice job on both the toilet and the microwave and posting your modifcations. One question I have is from the toilet write up, you talked about all the sweat and wiping it up. In the microwave write up you state you have 30 amp on the house. So why didn't you have the a/c on druing the installs? cool

    Another small point I have is that you don't need to double post your write up as the main page shows us what post are new, making it hard to miss you posts. When on a slow campground wifi the less post the better. just a small point. Smile

Looks like you saved $11 over ordering from the manufacture.  ThumbsUp

Make sure you mount them at the floor line using 1" screws into the floor.

I believe that the link is from Ron, not me. He gets the credit for it.

Double dang.  I hope this is the worse thing that breaks on you.
You do have four spares now. LOL

Some times yes, some times no. It all depends on where we are going and if we might need it for side trips. When on longer western trips we don't tow but sometimes will rent a car for a day or two. If we (read DW) wants to go shopping while we are staying at a campgroung for a few days, then I will tow. Also good for taking her out to dinner without having to break camp.

When towing remeber that not only will your gas milage go down a little, but any tolls will be much higher. Some turnpikes count it as four axles, which is higher than a motorhome and a seperate car.

I doubt I have been of much help with this reply because it all depends on when and where we are going. If it was me, I would buy the tow bar and brake, get it all set up, then you have the option to tow or not in the future.

I carry a 50 to 30 amp converter plug for just such times. I am guessing the state park did not have 50 amp on the post.

On both our 2010 and our 2012 PC when you open either the drivers door or the passengers door all the running lights come on and stay on for about 30 seconds. This includes the turn signal/brake, the upper front and rear and the lower side running lights. Depending on how often you use the cab doors when parked, it could run down the engine battery.

I would wait until the factory gets back from vacation on Monday and call Carol. Or you could try Camping World for parts.

You might want to think about upgrading to the E450 chasis. I did that on my 2350. It has a higher rear load rating.
