  1. Michelin Tire Gone Square

    I had been hearing an uncomfortable noise coming from my front driver side tire. When the wheel was turned I could see at least two places where the tire was bald and appeared to be square. Obviously this was creating the thumping sound I heard. All the tires were installed the same time and air maintained with my via compressor. The other 5 tires all seem good with plenty of tread, even looking new. Has anyone experienced a situation like this? They are 22 inch tires on my 06 bounder.
  2. Best Tow Dolly Tires

    I am using a 205/75R14 tire and a jeep patriot weighing 3150 pounds.There is no extra load in mu car.
  3. Best Tow Dolly Tires

    I have been using a master tow dolly for the last 6 years and have had many blowouts. Each blowout usually rips the polyethylene fenders off . Our last experience not only blew out the tire, and caused the fender to break away, but also mangled the steel frame preventing the spare from being put on. I keep the tire pressure inflated and the vehicle does not exceed the tow dollies weight capacity. I have been using a radial tire from tractor supply, but have also used D rated bias ply with the same results. All suggestions welcome. I am switching to a Goodyear American made tire.
  4. I am planning a trip to the Maritime Provinces this spring-summer. I would appreciate any information about this area. What to see. Where to stay. your experiences. We will visit Nova Scotia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick before heading to Quebec City. Thanks Steve
  5. Towing 2014 Jeep Patriot

    How do you not lock the steering wheel? With the ignition off the wheel is locked on the Patriot? When I tow my 2015 VW Beetle my ignition is off the car is in park and no parking brake. However the wheel is locked. Is this the same procedure with the Patriot?
  6. I recently purchased a 2014 Jeep Patriot. I am currently using a Tow Dolly for my VW. Can I use the Tow Dolly for the Jeep? Can I 4 down with this car? Thanks Steve
  7. We will be traveling this summer to Memphis from Natchez driving parts of the Natchez Trace. Are the campgrounds along the Trace busy or should we look for private CG's along the way. I am having difficulty finding private campgrounds can anyone recommend some.

  12. Schroon Lake Campgrounds

    We are looking for c/g that will have cabin rentals for grandchildren and parents with space for our motorhome. We have seen Medcalf Acres and spoken to owner, however they want payment in full with no refunds. I would not feel comfortable with that policy. Any recommendations for cabin/site rentals would be appreciated. We would like to stay in proximity to Lake George also. Thanks

  15. Rand McNally Tripmaker RVND 7710 Warning

    Mine also missed Topsail this summer by 3 miles, and put us on a one way,dead end street in Fayetteville N.C. We had to take the car off the tow dolly and the gps insisted our address was across the street, when in actuality it was 9 miles away. These 2 problems were the only ones in thousands of travel miles. I like the features.
