  1. ok, looking at a couple different ones. what brand did you get? did you do it yourself or have it done?
  2. hi guys, we made the air pressure changes and have put a few miles on. it definitely helped, but need to go to the next level. experiencing a great deal of driver fatigue fighting the cross winds and road in general. looking at Sumo springs, track bars and shocks. there are allot of options. could use any input.
  3. We also made air pressure adjustments according to a Goodyear chart we found online. Seems to have helped - but definitely not where I'd like it to be.
  4. Yep, full tanks and loaded for a trip. We have a 22,000 lb chassis.
  5. do you think it's possible is backwards? they had me pull all the way on,them back up one set of pads.
  6. Thanks again everyone! Not sure I understand all this, we only have two axles. Our front gawr 8,000 and rear gawr is 15,000. Below are today's weights: Steer axle - 12,600 Drive axle - 6,540 Trailer axle - 12,620 Gross weight - 31,760
  7. I'm going to take the RV to a truck stop tomorrow to have it weighed, but they only way by Axle. The chart someone attached to Super handy but it's by axle end. Do I just double that when figuring the axle weight in the chart?
  8. OK guys, you may have to back track a little for a rookie like me. Where do I get the weight checked? How do I use that info to determine tire pressure? The tires themselves say cold max of 90. The GVWR 22000. No 2 ways about it, we are ALL over the road in descent cross wind, it really doesn't take very much. Just going down the road its a very rough and bumpy ride-- like sitting in a empty flat bed pick up.
  9. We are looking to make some improvements to our 2011 Daybreak bunk house. The ride and handling make it difficult to drive and gives my family motion sickness going down I80. I haven't had a lot of luck looking around the net, what have you done or seen done that was worth the effort and money?
  10. We are looking for a place to boon dock one night on the way to SW Utah from Iowa and one on the way back, probably off or very near I80 in western NE, could use some guidance!
  11. We just started towing a toad (2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) this year. We haven't yet started using a brake system, but I can tell we could really use one. I am considering all systems, but like the idea of the Roadmaster InvisiBrake, because I don't want to put in and take it out all the time. was wondering a few things: 1, Is it difficult to install myself? 2. If I understand it correctly this system is not proportional. isn't that a bad thing? 3. Is there anything else (pro or con) I should know, (i.e., is there anything else I need to buy besides the brake system itself).
  12. We are on our way from Iowa to Canyon Lands/ Arches National parks. 1/2 way would be somewhere around Sterling CO, the closer to the interstate 76 the better. Would really like a pull through site and a pool.
  13. I am also looking at a Jeep, can the tow plates be mounted on a front end like this one?
  14. Thanks everybody, appreciate the wisdom. We are going to Utah, Arizona for the family vacation. I am thinking a Wrangler unlimited is the way for us to go.
