Do you need a full tank of water? What are your plans for water use? Just wash hands and toilet? Shower? Full tank is about 500 Lb of wight you will be dragging around. Will this Put you over wight for your tt tires or frame. Can you travel with 1/4 tank? Wish I could go down there now also as it is snow out side right now.

Hope this helps Tim

Top off your fuel tanks before you get to Florida and save a little money.

I dont need a full tank, Im sure a half or a little less would do. My TT came with "c" rated tires and when I put new ones on it I went up to "e" rated

Yep, @ 1/2 tank should more than do you for toilet and hand washing.

You're doing it right BTW The only time we use any bathroom but our rig's is when we are making a fuel stop

Did the same thing with my c rated tires. went to discount tire bought a set of e tires and sold the c tires to a local lawn maintenance company for $200.00. Could not believe the difference in the tt handling much better. Best $300.00 upgrade I have made to the tt.

Hope this helps Tim

My first trip in the Flagstaff I had a blow out that did 1800 worth of damage to the passenger side, thats when I pulled all of them off and upgraded.

Sorry to hear about the blow out. When I ordered the tt last November I asked the dealer if I could up grade the tires to d or e rating and was told no. So when I took delivery in late march on a Thursday I went to Discount tire on Monday and had the e load range tires install with a born on date of January 15 and December 14.

IMPORTANT and did not see it mentioned. Do not turn on the water heater until you have bled all the lines and the Water Heeater tank is full. Enjoy; Frank
