Load range D, 15". Max sidewall is 65#, rims are rated higher (85# I think). Why 66#? No real reason, other than I figured that if they lost a little air over time, it would delay having to add more air. And since my TT is just sitting now, I know that the extra pound of pressure won't hurt, since tires are designed to handle the extra pressure that builds when traveling on the road, and when ambient temperature rises from morning cold to afternoon hot.

Also, I seem to remember reading somewhere that if a trailer is just sitting, it's a good idea to add some extra pressure above the sidewall max pressure. Anyone else heard of doing this, or did I just imagine it?

Drove her home from her first trip! It was cold here in Michigan, but it was fun trying out everything!

Loaded her up and prepped her to leave first on our first extended trip with her first thing Friday morning. All that's left to do is add the rest of the food and hitch up.

Funny you ask about a tv, I did install a new tv including articulating arm and DVD player (about 10-12 pounds).

Yesterday, I replaced all the exterior marker light bulbs with LED.
42lbs??? Holy cripe they have some weight to them!!!

We have X-chocks, still have a little bounce when someone walks through the rig, but I believe it is due to how long our 32 is. Plan is to buy another set of scissor jacks for the center.

Not sure if that tv will tow the rig though! Lol

What led bulbs did you buy?

Hope the first trip was awesome!!! Not that I ever remember to throw ours in the tt, but get an electric heater to help ease the propane use for when you have electric h/u. One of these days I will just put it in there and leave it!!! Lol

Need to get down your way to the Woodshop again!!! Awesome place!!!

Parked it at home after solo (well, me + Maisy) monthlong trip to Yellowstone, my first in a hard-sided trailer. DH plans to clean off the bugs today, and I'll be unpacking.

Storage check.

It's been raining a lot around here lately, so just making sure everything is still all dry. All is well, but she's getting too dirty for my taste, going to be time to get her home for spring cleaning soon. Well, that our first trip of the season soon hopefully!

Found a bird's nest in my steps too! With 5 eggs in it! Mama must have been out getting dinner, no one was bothering me near the nest.
