Found out why my big awning forward support arm will not fully close sometimes. Jayco installed the the rail to the FW on a slight angle. Look at your awning arms and make sure they fully over lap when closed. Dealer has seen three like this in the last month.

Interesting- Our forward arm was mounted at an angle also and was straightened by our dealer. Must be Jayco workers couldn't take that extra second to be sure things were square. Kinda goes along with all the other things that weren't done right the first time!!

The dealer thinks the reason it is happening is this. If you look at your small awning and the rear support of the big one you can measure from the seam or edge. The big one front support has no edge so they use a level. That works only if the Rv is perfectly level. Mine looked like it was closed but not tightly. He said the inner arm rubing will wear and fail in the future.

We picked up our 2016 36FBTS in Apr 2016. Been on many trips with it. Had the trailer in twice for warranty work all minor things. We put about 5000 miles on our 5wh so far we very happy with it. But you guys are scaring me with the tire problems. We are planning on heading south for the winter in two locations about 5500 miles. I have read all the threads on tire replacement. I have factory Ranier tires and my rims are rated for 3750 lbs. I check my tires before each trip they look good, put 80 psi in them. Has anyone not replaced their tires. I going to talk to some tire dealers in my area. I will check on the G614 and the Sailun S637. I know its better to be safe then sorry.

Tires are a issue they even told me supposed to repay me spent 700 they said they will pay 500 first trip new unit figure that, now the rim is only rated for 85 lbs so that does not allow for larger rated tire as larger tire requires more air pressure put Goodyear on even spare it made it back to factory in April factory service manager can't seem to find my phone number to explain anything Iam making my third trip driving the car there,been in my own auto business for40 years never did I do this even to the worst customer now they sold out so I'll probably never get my money or get it done,buy the way any one tow one of these using the Bw non sliding hitch using gems 6-5 bed thanks and I'd buy the tires sorry about that

We had immediate problems w Rainier tires. Huge bubbles. Even on the spare that was never installed. Replaced w the G614 and had no issues. Used the same rims. We had to shave off a bit of the fender for the tire to fit. Peace of mind was worth every penny spent on theses tires.

When reusing your original wheels did you check the PSI rating? I was told by my Jayco rep the specs say the wheels are rated for 80psi. Aren't the G614 tires rated higher?

The stock rims are 80 psi the g rated are 110 psi. That said I would put them on 80 psi rims but install solid valve stems and run about 90 psi. Beth u mentioned about shaving ur fenders. I have a slight rub on my slide inside edge on left rear tire. Dealer said might be From tight backing turns but I do not think so. There is not much clearance and I am sure the rub happened on an interstate overpass that had a huge dip. We all know how smooth our roads r.

Rock- I went went with the 17.5" Sailuns and don't have any clearance problems and still have not seen any rubbing underneath. How did you "weather" the storm? We will be coming down the end of Oct. and staying at Nature Coast Landings for the winter- if it's still there.
