Thanks for the reply and this is the start of our 3rd season and the TT was purchased new. At times it is disappointing, it does help i am handy with items it does ease things, i would not enjoy hauling to to repair shop for every item.

Thanks

It is a nice smoker/BBQ, old diesel tank i did not fabricate it i paid someone. I am handy but not a fabricator/welder. That big grill had 4 hamburger patties on it. It works well for ribs and chicken low and slow. Also enough Sq Ft for a family get together

This forum is what taught me the trim is what covers the seam of wall to tub. Also gave me an idea on transmission temperature when pulling.

I really enjoy this thread and campsite and towing threads as well.

I tell the DW this is my version of social media hers is Facebook

Adding another shelf above or kitchen drawers. Added two trones by the door (thanks Doug for the idea). I love my kreg pocket hole jig. The original drawer supports are held together with a whole bunch of staples... Not no more, now they are all pocket holed together.

Yesterday ran the antenna to the roof for the cell booster.

Installed these gages today didn't need them but like the information they are very inexpensive. Installed them above the frig and had to drill and fish wires because the OEM wires were foam blocked where they came thru the blocking to the converter compartment under the frig.

I like that better than mine being out at the pedestal (surge protector display)

Dropped the spare to get balanced in preparation for our summer Maine trip. Low and behold a tire that has never been used and is barely a year old has two dimples on the side wall. Contacted Primetime will be interesting to hear their response.

Can you turn the backlighting off? I wouldn't like that shining at night.

Had to change a tire on I-29 just north of KC this afternoon on my way home from lake Perry. They were 5 yrs old and I was going to replace them after this trip (hadn't figured out which brand to get). Guess I know what I'll be ordering this week... Expensive weekend. I thought the wife was going to cry.I They no deficiency's that I could find when I prepped for this weekend.
However I did figure out my rims are 110 psi g-rated here I come.

Quick question. Does insurance pay for all the fender damage?

It could have been worse. etrailer.com has some good tires, G rated for Less than I paid for my Maxxis 8008s, E rated.

https://www.etrailer.com/Tires-and-W...PRG235R16.html

I purchased from them before, good service, good products. The tires I bought from them lasted 8 years.

I'm hoping so, we have comprehensive, I'll find out this week, wife filed the a claim with usaa after I got it changed and we were headed home. About 10 yrs ago I lost a bedside on the truck due to a blowout and it was covered but I've never had to deal with trailer insurance.

Really, I'll have to look at them,. I can get Hercules G rated here for 560$ mounted they have them in stock, but I don't know anything about them.

I can't find anyone locally that has the sailun tires. I know a lot of people swear by them.

We feel for you, we had the same issue about 9 months ago. I ended up getting all new Sailun G637s (LOVE them!!!) and repaired the fender myself. Mine did not damage the skirting on the trailer in the shame fashion as yours though.

Make sure when you upgrade the tires you get the all metal high PSI valve stems installed as well.

Good luck!

Took the rig out for a 2 night trip and added a back up camera to it. Hardest part was getting my head around the camera’s black wire going to the white of the running light and the red to the black. Tucked the wireless antenna behind the light with the wires for a nice clean look (minus my lack of silicone skills). Great reception in the cab still. Click image for larger version
