They must have changed from a 14" wheel to a 15" with the newer models. My 2014 came with 205/75R14. Probably had 5,000 on the stock tires and just replaced them due to bad uneven wear and some cracking. Maybe next time I'll just switch to 15" wheels for more heavy duty tire.

What brand tire did your 2016 come with?

My brand is Power King Towmax STR.

My Load D (8 ply) tires are rated 2150 lbs. @65 psi. I keep them cold inflated at 64 psi. There are both good and bad reviews on this tire. I have been very happy with them so far, plenty of tread left after 5K miles. Minimum 8 ply tires is something to consider if you plan to change to 15" wheels.

Is that an actual stud on yours? Went to mount mine and it's just a thin piece of wood there to frame the door space. It's maybe 1" thick. Looks like Lag bolts would go through it, most likely splintering, and into the cabinet. I can't seem to find anything in my opening that looks safe to bolt a TV mount into.

A little more artwork ...the red arrows show the thickness of the stud. With the paneling/cabinet brace on the inside and the metal door frame on the outside you basically have a laminated wall stud. The TV and mount probably weighs 5 lbs at most so I have no problem at all having it there but I understand your concern.

Thanks, I was looking at that wood strip on the very edge of your yellow arrow tip. This weekend I'll give it another run and go for the yellow box area.
Where did you run your power and cable cords?

110v goes through where the fridge plugs in on the left. A/V wires go through the cabinet on the right. Going to Warriors Path State Park tomorrow for the weekend I'll get some pics.

The outlet for the fridge on mine is a single outlet so nothing else can be plugged in. Is there any issues with using a power strip there? I can't imagine that small fridge needing its own dedicated outlet.

That's what I did but I plan on changing the outlet after camping season. I can't see that little tv drawing enough amps to overload anything. We've used ours for hours on end without a problem. Been watching football tonight. I've not checked but the exterior outlet right next to the outside fridge door is probably on the same circuit too. We use it for a fan almost all the time here in the sweaty south.
