    Jack Pads

    I just added snap pads, easy to install and so far I am very pleased with them. Prior to purchasing theses I used 4 inch thick wood blocks which were extremely heavy to carry around.
  2. Hankook does not show my tire size, I need 295/80/22.5 and they only show 295/75/22.5 and do not list the load rating, which is why I am hesitant to consider, both Continental and Michelin show my tires size in load range H. If available is it possible to go to the next load range as my coach is heavy and if so would that be a load range I and is that available. Any help is appreciated
  3. Thank you for your help, I need to do this but not for a couple of months, still in research stage, sounds like I should stay away from Hankook
  4. Planning to replace the tires on my coach within the next several months and viewed what FMCA offers. I do have some questions: Currently I have Michelins XZA2 295/80r/22.5 Hankook does not have my exact size but the closest is 295/75r/22.5 and the FMCA price is between $313 and $417 with no explanation on the differences Continential has my exact tire and the FMCA price is $547 Michelins exact match to what I have on coach now and the FMCA price is $671.67 Big difference in price, looking for advice on quality and also the size difference with Hankook. I have read good things about Hankook, I think someone mentioned they have a stronger sidewall than others. I am sure all 3 are good choices or FMCA would not have them listed but would like to know if there are any other differences than price. Need to make a decision within the next couple of months so any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank you
  5. Thank you for all of your responses on my question. We left home on June 1 and the dash air has been working great, almost 4,000 miles so far and it is blowing cold so the amount I put into the system must have been acceptable. As we continue our journey I will let you know if anything changes but again thanks for your help and support.
  6. HuffyPuff, there is a label on the front of my system which states it uses R134A, so I did not mix the two
  7. I have a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I do not disconnect the negative battery terminal and have never had a problem. Also the way my Jeep is setup there is nothing on at all in the Jeep when towing. I did have a separate plug install to handle my brake buddy but that is it.
  8. Thank you for all your help, I put R134A in the system as that is the type of refrigerant listed on system. The gauge read 33 when I was finished and I had cold air coming into coach. I have not driven it yet but hope that it is better than it was. Thanks for all of your help
  9. Brett, temperature here in Florida is 88, condenser fan was not running when I first started adding Freon but did come on and was running through the remainder of this process. I believe the low side (blue cap) is where I connected hose and gauge and after adding 16 oz it was reading 33 in the green on the gauge. I do not know the exact temperature coming out of the returns but the engine was idling most of the time, I did increase the rpm for less than a minute and the air coming out was significantly cooler than when I started. Obviously I have no idea how much was in the system when I started which has lead to my question about 33 on the gauge and did I do enough. First time I have tried this with my motorhome, have done it with my wifes car in the past. Thank you
  10. On my 2016 Tuscany Coach with Cummins 450, the dash air has never really been too cold, actually more cool than cold. I just added Freon to the system. I put about 16 oz in, with the capacity being 2.5lbs or 40 oz. Gauge I used to insert Freon has the green area which ranges from 25 to 50. When I finished adding what I did the air coming out of the dash was colder than it has ever been and the gauge was reading about 33, 34 in the green. Did I put enough in or should I add some additional. I saw the warnings about not overcharging the system. Any help would be appreciated
  11. Thank you for all your suggestions, I just completed the form for the TSD Program. It says it will take a couple of weeks to receive it but will check back as I use it. Thanks again
  12. I have heard a lot about the deep discounts on diesel fuel with these discount cards. The TCS card through FMCA seems to be about $.30 per gallon but I have heard that the TSD Card could be much more. Anyone have an opinion or preference on which card or both to have in my wallet. Let me know your thoughts
  13. My Jacks and Slides are both hydraulic so engine running, jacks level coach first and slides are extended. When leaving, engine running slides in Jacks up
  14. On my coach during the winter a couple of years ago water accumulated on the slide top and froze. The weight must have stretched the material because anytime it rains water continues to accumulate there so before I bring my slides in I climb up on the roof with a broom and remove the accumulated water. My slide seals and wipers look to be in good shape it is just too much water coming down if I down remove it first. Does anyone think I can have the slide topped tightened so I don't have to do this anymore, not my favorite thing to do but...

    Odd Tire Wear

    Final Update on this issue: Took close pictures to a Michelin Dealer and he knew the tire wear immediately, called it River Wear which usually happens when the tire is under inflated or over weight. I told him I ran 105 in them based on the Michelin Tire charts and he told me never pay attention to those charts. RV tires should always have between 115 and 120 in them or else you will get unusual wear. He said they would never allow a coach to leave their business with anything less. He also told me if your tire temperature ever reaches 165 degrees the tire is ruined. The integrity of the tire is compromised at that temperature and even if it did not malfunction then it is only a matter of time before it does. The good news is that he told me the tires still had a lot of tread and are safe. I inflated all my tires to 115 and will keep a close eye on them but this is one thing I can stop worrying about. Thanks to everyone who offered help and suggestions with this issue.
