Hey you should plan on driving a few miles east of Cheyenne to 280 and staying @ west lake park. "Pull thru sites"


We picked our sabre up from Cheyenne on a Friday and headed over to west lake for a shake down.
Luckily we only had two minor issues that only required my handy work.
We did forget an item so I drove back to Cheyenne and picked up one item and ended up buying a few more!

picked it up last Friday. Went straight out to the dam complex in coralville where I had a site saved with a tent from the night before. we are headed to west lake this weekend. The shakedown went fairly well. couple minor issues not caught on pdi. It was an experience unhooking and leveling up for the first time in the dark.

one thing I did notice was in the wind there was a lot of pushing/pulling bouncing feeling(mostly at slow speeds). I am not sure how fast is a good speed on the interstate but I was going about 65 and it felt ok. I got about 11.5 mpg instead of my normal 18.

how often should I check torque on lug nuts and air pressure? The tires are nitrogen filled. The following may be a dumb question but... is there anything different I need to do to fill them? What would be a good jack to buy in case of a blow out? Anderson?

If it was me i'd get rid of the nitro as it's not that good a deal. Just deflate and then put air in the tires and enjoy your trips. Later RJD
