New 8289WS Owners from Texas

Another new Forest River owner from Pflugerville, Texas saying howdy.
We've owned our new 8289WS for two weeks and two short outings and we love it. This is our fourth trailer and happy for the change. We're looking forward to learning (and sharing) much information.

Welcome with your new 8289WS. Had mine a little over 2 years now. I suggest you get rid of those trail express tires asap. I installed GY Marathon on mine and went up to D rated from C had a blowout. Make sure you also grease your bearings my came about 1 and 1/2 tubes low. I use the high temp 400 degree now. Buy it at Napa. You picked I nice unit we really like ours...........

Thanks for that excellent advice regarding the tires and bearing grease. I have been a little concerned about both. That's the boot in the rear I needed to get 'er done.

I actually put load range "E" tires on mine. And, don't forget a serious consideration for a tire pressure monitoring system.

We love our year 2013 8289WS. We have about 23,000 miles on it so far.
