  1. Those are good tires. Not just a tire shop but a place that knows how to do a big rig all wheel alignment. Most should do it automatically but point out you want the steering wheel centered. Bill
  2. kirish, Welcome to the Forum. Good advice above. Yes you had it checked but they may have missed something. I would try again with a place that is use to doing big rig all wheel alignments. When you do have it loaded like you were on a trip. Full fuel, fresh water and propane. The weight changes the ride hight and suspension geometry. Yes, those tires have a history of wearing unevenly. Have you done a corner weight and adjusted your tire preshure? Let us know what you find out. Bill
  3. This note should be included in all instructions for towing. Note: Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust fumes from entering your vehicle. Ray I had to go look.😉Interesting that the plain "Gas"version can't be towed. Bill
  4. " you have to follow a specific procedure." That covers most everything I have seen that is towable. Let us know how it works out. Bill
  5. Welcome to the forum. Here is more than you wanted to know. What RV do you have? gas or diesel? Tools to plan trips Here are some tools to help you plan your trip. RV Parky is a good tool to find places to stay and plan routs. http://www.rvparky.com/ Gas Buddy You can download it from your app store. Find cheap gas and you can record your gas/fuel expenses. You can look ahead and see what the prices are where you are headed . It helps plan fuel stops. RV park reviews is a good tool to see what other people think about a place. http://www.rvparkreviews.com/ NPS you can look up things to see/points of interest. https://www.nps.gov/index.htm You can also see what campgrounds are available in the different parks. Also look at getting a pass and if you are 62 or older definitely get a Senior Pass it is a $100.00 Lifetime pass that covers everyone in your car. https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/passes.htm You may have to wait till you get to your first park they have a great way to record the parks you have been to. It is called a Passport, you buy it in the visitor’s center, it kind of looks like a Passport but you add stickers and stamp the date and time you were at the park. One other thing you need is get a Passport America discount card. This is a tool to help campgrounds fill empty spots during the week or slow times. Each campground sets the time and discount but most times it is 50% and some places 3-4 days. We saved about $450.00 last year. I think I got my $44.00 back. http://www.passport-america.com/ For navigation, I highly recommend CoPilot. We have used it for several years and it does a great job. The big benefit is you can download maps when you have Wi-Fi and it doesn’t use data. I have it on the phones and on my tablet. The tablet gives a bigger picture to see and follow. I like Yelp when on the road to see what places there are and to get reviews, see menus. Who wants to drive 2000 miles to eat the same fast food stuff you have at home. Oh Ranger, is a park locator for those hidden gems like Antelope Island in the great Salt Lake. Rest Stops, is a good app. You might look at the apps for all the big truck stops Pilot Flying J, Loves, or get the ALLSTAYS Big Truck Stops. See how easy it is. Just head East on I-40, when you get to Oklahoma City go south on I-35 to Texas.😁 Bill
  6. Are you using bolts or screws? If bolts what nuts are you using? Bill
  7. Welcome to the forum. Well it depends on what your needs are. Full hookups at Ruby's or dry camping in the park. Next time in the area I will probably stay at Ruby's Bill
  8. I started using STA-LUBE wheel bearing grease years ago because it realey did stay in the bearings, even after 10-15,000 miles. When you pulled the bearings out they looked like you just packed them. I had a 1967 Chevy 1/2 ton that was tough on bearings and after as little as 5,000 miles there would be no grease in them and metal flakes showing up. I would use their brand (appropriate grease for the application) grease on most everything. After all you have to like a place that says their products are “Intentionally Better Products.” https://www.crcindustries.com/products/grease.html This would be my recommendation. Bill
  9. I would look on You Tube. I would do like Ray said and look for a service manual. https://www.generac.com/service-support/contact-us What happened with the " Im gonna take it to our shop and have other gen techs help me. Were gonna pull it out and do a complete level 3 service on it." Back in June? Bill
  10. Well congratulations!!! Be nice to your new CEO and she will be nice to you. My only news is in the morning we are headed back home from a week in Angel Fire NM. Bill
  11. Welcome to the forum and thank you for your service. Bill
  12. Crash damage should be covered by your main insurance.I would do a review of the exact coverage with your agent. Bill
  13. Ray, are they making any progress on your coach? Bill
  14. I had to remember how to turn on a little heat. It was 39 in Angel Fire this morning. Bill
  15. Ray, that is the best way I can think of. Bill
