We took ours out of winter storage today.

We store it in the barn of a farmer about an hour away in southern Indiana. I would have liked to wait a few weeks to pick it up when the weather is better, but we are camping Easter weekend, and need to get some work done before then.

As you can see, there is a spare tire on it. The original tire took a sharp rock and went flat while pulling it into the barn in late November. I am going to replace all five tires with new Maxxis tires. The tongue jack is also getting replaced under warranty, as two of the teeth on one of the gears broke off.

This is why I will always have a four-wheel-drive truck. I would rather not wait a few weeks for the snow to melt or pay someone to haul it to the dealer for me. What you are seeing was the easy part. Those tracks are from me pulling it out of the barn and getting it turned around. I had to drive it through eight inches of snow after that picture was taken to get it to the plowed road.

I need to replace my tires on a 2703ws (same as a 27rlws). Has any one gone up to a 215 75 14. I like the idea that these have a weight rating of 2200 lbs.

Correction to my last post. I would order the tires only and use the aluminum wheels that came with the emerald package.

Taskmaster is still Chinese, and larger diameter than the 205s; On mine they wouldn't clear. A better solution is either Kumho 857s or Hankook RE08s, their size 195r14 is the same size as originals but are a true load range D 8 ply tire not made in China; Love my Hankooks and absolutely no problems with them. They are also rated to 99 mph and have a capacity of 2,094# each

I will be changing the tires out this summer before we head over the mountains. Looking at the Hankook RE08's for the heavier weight support and the class D rating.

Well all I can say is that it does. I have blown the fuse on the kitchen and wardrobe slide when we first got it. I replaced the fuse and have never had another issue (so far). Perhaps it's the placement of the fuses. Ours, and perhaps yours, is under the "A Frame" close to the battery. I could think of numerous places rather than that. Keep a good stock of 30 amp fuses on hand.

Are there fuses other than those in the fuse panel box?

Yes, as stated above, the fuses for the slide outs and my stabilezes, and tonge jack are outside, near battery, on the tonge before the wires all enter the camper.

The wardrobe slide fuse is by the water filter/heater in the front panel outside under the slide itself. I removed the water filter (read previous posts) and use an outside filter only. It was a cheap housing that failed.
