Interesting. But don't you have to have a pilot car out front warning "WIDE LOAD"??!! :big_grin:

I knew that was coming!

Think I should consider dropping down to a 1,000lb spring bar rating? (kidding of course)

Not very aerodynamic doing that.. might have to add a vertically mounted air foil to counter that... ... yeah if you cant tell I am joking

That was SUCH a cheap shot, I almost didn't take it.

Don't forget Mom!

some how I think my side to side weights are fairly equal. I have two slides opposite each other that are over the axles. The bedroom slide on the driver side is balanced with the weight of my wifes clothes in the drawers on the opposite wall.

It is really a shame that the company " A weight we go" is no longer in business. they weighed every wheel made loading recommendations and tire pressure recommendations .. and of course told you if you were overweight.. THE RIG NOT YOU...LOL

Ok, I found something that may peak your interest while surfing around the net, so I can't take any credit for it:

"Here's the quick and simple method to check for proper operating pressure:

Get an infrared (IR) temp gauge at Sears, HD, etc. When the tires are warmed up from driving, take a tempurature reading at each tire tread outer edge, and in the center of the tread. (3 shots per tire) If the outer temps are hotter than the center, the tire pressure is too low. If the center temp is higher, the pressure is too high. General numbers are about 1-2 psi difference for every 5 F temp difference".


Something to think about anyways

Bob

I like that idea. I'll see what one would cost.
