RE: Rough Ride

Load and proper inflation is the way to go. There is a reason they make load/inflation chart for every tire. This is exactly what Sailun told me when I inquired on the appropriate psi to run out ours. In fact they provided a bit of education to the different wear problems from over inflation (not just what you would expect from more wear in the center of the tire). The psi I run is less that the OP has his set at. An FYI, I put Sailun on ours two years ago. Balance and the fifth wheel had factory shocks on each tire. A year ago I replaced the shocks with Monroe Gas Magnums when I put on a SRE4000 equalizer. Axle max is 6000, weight on the two axles is about 11,000 lbs. We haven’t had anything inside break and not one door or drawer opened since the Sailun s were installed. At the time I was replacing two year old Marathons, GY had just come out with the Endurance so very little feedback on them. Plus, I wasn’t thrilled to add to GY pockets after they profited from selling **** Marathons to thousands.

RE: Mechanical Bay Project

Nice work, like your idea of using a sharpie to mark water flow. On our AF 27-5L our similar area was mostly unused space with a few plumbing vents and incoming waterlines. I repurposed it after installing solar to house 4 AGM Batteries.

RE: inverter power cables cca or ofc

Another 4/0 welding cable, lots of tiny strands of cooler wires. Used a hydraulic crimper for the lugs. Im working on the install of a 3000W Magnum Hybrid i should finish today. Just need to connect it to the battery bank, do the function testing and set the charger specs.

RE: Steps recommendations

I’ve yet to have a day I haven’t loved our Torklift Glowsteps. I debated for a while between these and MorRydes Step Above, deciding on Torkllifts since being in a place of limited clearances I can unfold them and safely get in our rig. We store our rig, one time when I was out to put some things in it a check on it the boat next to us was so close I couldn’t get the door open. With MorRyde Steps I wouldn’t have been above to get inside. With Torklifts I could partially pull unfold them and get inside. With limited mobility you can easily add another step if needed to help.

RE: 5th wheel lifting bracket

I’ve got a B&W Companion hitch so about six months ago purchased this same lift bracket. I didn’t like the price either but my Chiropractor charges $55 per visit so for me it’s the lesser of two evils. The lift bracket makes easy work with the Companion hitch for removal and installing it back. Money well spent

RE: Fifth Wheel Riding Nose High

Just making sure on this, can the pinbox be adjusted? Ours was a bit nose high, I lowered the nose by raising the pinbox up from the middle setting to the highest. The results lowered the nose to be almost perfect level.

RE: MorRyde steps - one solution

As my Dad used to say, “necessity is the Mother of invention”. Nice solution you came up with. I have Torklift Steps on ours, not intending to be negative against MorRydes, but have had a few times when the 4 step unit we have needs longer legs hitting the ground. I’m about to add a fifth step which will sold those situations.
