    Cool idea.

    Then forum software is set to a default 5 minutes for editing, I increased it to 60 minutes.

    [quote quote=338]In 2010 My wife and I took a road trip up 101 in Ca. and Or. as far as Crater Lake in Or. and then back down through Nv. It took us ten days in the car, would liked to have spent more time photographing and seeing the sights. Great trip![/quote]

    Nice, Crater Lake is cool, we looped over there from the Oregon Coast during one trip. What time of year did you do your 2010 trip, in Spetember 2010 we drove down the coast then over to Yosemite and down around the bottom of the Seirras and up hwy 395 on the east side of them to Lake Tahoe, then back over to the coast and up to BC. Great trip, maybe we passed by each other. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the trip that really got us hooked on RVing. We did it in a camper van. Anne, me and two beagles for almost a month.

    Here is the van halfway up MT Shasta, and Anne is waiting for the clouds to clear on the summit to photograph.

    Guess I’ve been lucky, towed around 40,000 miles I figure in the last two years and no problems. Sounds like you are doing everything right. Only thing I can think of is to get the rig weighed and make sure it’s not overloaded. But more likely a bad batch of tires I would think.

    If you’re looking for replacements the brand Maxxis have a good reputation.

    I’m using TowMaxx, some folks report problems, I’ve had none. I wore out my first set of load “D” and went to load “E”s that have an extra 2 plys and can hold max 80 lbs air. It did seem to improve the ride a bit and they don’t bulge as much.

    Thanks Jon, that’s one great thing about having an older truck, they sat much lower than the newer ones, making it easy to get good level. Tows like a dream, very stable in winds and turns.

    I see some folks with big 4×4 modern trucks towing with the fivers nose way in the air, or they have to flip the trailer axles changing the trailers center of gravity.
