  1. Tire Shelf-Life and Life-Cycle Concerns

    Thank you Roger.
  2. Tire Shelf-Life and Life-Cycle Concerns

    I did contact Superior Tire in Portland and responded that they do not have the date codes and that I would have to get them myself or I could return to shop and they would get them for me. I am in Arizonan now! i did go to Roger Marbles TireSafety web site to register tires, which led me to Michelins site, which asked to choice the tire but the list is only for passenger tires, XRV tires are not listed. So where do you register RV tires?
  3. Pure Sine Wave vs Modified Sine & Refrigerators

    Have small RV, need small refer. The Whirpool 10.7 cf fits with minor trim, I know it runs on msw inverter, she likes it better then other brands, don't need any vents, and yes hard ice cream again!!!! Also 40% more room than No Cold, which means more salmon & crab to bring home from the NW ! harry

  5. Pure Sine Wave vs Modified Sine & Refrigerators

    I will leave it simple for now, just use the existing 1500 watt msw inverter/charger and leave it on all the time. i do know of coupe of other rv'rs that have installed the small Whirpool refer and it does work on the msw inverter, but they are not hard core boondockers either. Thank you for the help, Harry
  6. Pure Sine Wave vs Modified Sine & Refrigerators

    I was just looking for a close DC source for the small inverter, batteries are 6' away vs 2'. No mixing of psw and msw. The refer I am looking at is rated 338 KWh so around 80Ah or 500watts. Does it make any sense to install a 800 watt inverter that is on 24/7 instead of running the 1500 watt inverter 24/7? We do have 250 watts of solar which is on the low side for this but then we boondock only occasionally, and we still have the generator for a needed boost. What would you do? The Norcold is 13 years old, 7.5cf, leaking door seals, repaired hinge. New is $2300, small residential 10.7cf is $450. thank you
  7. Pure Sine Wave vs Modified Sine & Refrigerators

    One of the early questions was "can I use a Small, (say 500w) PSW inverter to power the residential refrigerator only"? if yes can I wire it to the current inverter?
  8. Tire Shelf-Life and Life-Cycle Concerns

    So what does Michelin say about age of tires at installation date? We all have our opinions, what do they say? I have posted this question on their web site but no response! What do the tire experts say? Superior Tire in Portland did not give me DOT numbers or a copy of the warranty, just an invoice for $500 to install, balance, torque, disposal, etc. They are not a small dealer but act like one!
  9. Bigger AC Or Add One

    Rhinderber, go to. And search air conditioner, some people say the 15,000 unit did not help any. lot of good information on this site, very friendly Trek owners. harry
  10. Tire Shelf-Life and Life-Cycle Concerns

    What does Michelin say is the start date for tire warranty? DOT or install date? (had a good laugh, Michelin customer service lady said "ok to buy 3 year old tires and that they are good for 10 years") Superior Tire in Portland Or says it starts at installation date, so they say a one year old tire is OK! They also don't supply you the DOT dates so you have to do that yourself! Will the next buyer of the coach be happy when you tell him that the tires are only 5 years old, not 6 like the DOT date shows?
