Dave,
You can never have to much fun.

Trip is over. We're sitting in the lodge waiting for breakfast. Then we will load up in the float plane and head for home.

For the 3 of us we ended up with 5-50lb boxes

Jerry

Made it home last night and my 130lbs of fish fit in the freezer. I'm beat this morning. It was a long day yesterday with 3 plane rides and a delay on one of the flights. Time to rest from a great fishing trip.

I'll post more about the trip with pics on the other thread.

Her shoulder pain was pretty bad thru Tuesday, but much better now, except when she moves it around to much like she's not supposed to. Nurses make terrible patients!!!

Thank you for asking!!!

When is your date?

Just checking to see what tire pressures everyone is running? My motorhome came with Good Year 245/70 19.5 G670RV tires. The motorhome has 82 PSI stamped on it and the dealer set them at 77 PSI.

I went with the recommended 82 psi, at 65F "cold inflation. Most of the time they are in the middle 90's on these summer days according to the TPMS.

After getting my RV weighed I set pressure at 80 I could go a little lower but feel comfortable and drives well at 80 this way if I decide to add on board water or travel with waste tanks not emptied or add on extra supplies I don't have to stop to add air in tires

Have the same rig...
Although the motohome says 82...my tires say 110 and the dealership set them about 97 (cold).
When I got my alignment...the guys at the truck service center told me to keep them 95-100 (cold).

You need to kick your dealer in the seat of the pants and tell him he is a moron, the guys at the truck center too!!! 97 psi is way to much for a 29M even fully loaded, 82 psi is about correct and will give a much better ride!

To be sure of what psi you need get your coach weighed fully loaded like it would be on a trip and adjust your pressure accordingly.

That's what I thought too...but when the Thor factory send it out like that, the dealership said the same, and the truck center confirmed.....I thought all 3 of them have to be right. Apparently WRONG!

We haven't fully loaded it yet but will get it weighed and adjust. Thanks for backing up my suspicions!!!

That really depends on how your rig is loaded. We just had ours weighed (all 4 corners) and based on that we set the fronts to 92 and the rear duallies to 85 each.

No pics right now i might take some a little later for those of you that dont know what the chf is


Take special attention to bolt Torques!!!!!!! I snugged them up as hard as I thought necessary and after installing front and rear sway bars the left side front factory connecting link came unbolted from the sway bar. 5800 miles and only by chance did I find it hanging by a thread. DIY'ers pay attention.

That is why a torque wrench and blue Loctite are necessary tools for the job. Nuts should be torqued to 66 ft/lbs. Blue Loctite will keep the nuts from spinning off.
