So, towing, my sweet spot is 67. When not towing, I step it up a bit. On our local roads where it is posted 55, I usually do 60 and seldom catch up to anyone. On the interstate I'll run 10-12 over...

Exploding tank

Actually, that calculation is incorrect. You don't multiply to get 5000 #'s pressure. You should divide and get less total pressure.

I did the same with ours and still have the original table, but Ft. Meyers is a long way from NY.

I agree with this comment. I am on my third year with these and have lifted the wheels right off the ground with no issue. They do provide more stability as you don't extend the jacks as far. I have...

I was with Bank O the West for our 5er, 20 years at 5.75%. We also had a small HECL @ 5.25%. I had been paying extra on the 5er because 20 years keeps you under water.

I believe there are two models; one being a low slope to allow for a slide like mine has. If I put mine out only about two feet during a thunder storm as is currently going on, it is nearly flat and...

I have them on both sides of mine. I never use them as they are useless since they point straight out, hence only annoy the neighbor. If they were angled downward, they might provide some useful...

even though they paid cash, it's possible they financed it at a local bank or credit union and never made any payments, just lived in it for a year and moved on.
