I finally bit the bullet and replaced all 7 LT215R16E tires with LT235R16E tires- We are happy with the improved ride and anticipate increased tire mileage- It was necessary to place a 1/4 inch spacer between the duals- The mpg seems to have improved also- I have not had the OBC adjusted yet but the operation of the diesel and Allison are not noticeably impared by the change- I will post further when we have towed enough miles to make an informed opinion- JMHO- DD

Fulltiming since July 1, 1999 currently with a 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 cc drw towing a 2007 Jayco Eagle 341RLQS

Well it still at the shop, getting the front end fixed, new grille guard on route, I think it made a wrong turn somewhere, Not here yet! Only got until the 7th then going camping again for the last trip of the year.
Got the oil changed.
The truck goes off the road at the end of the month.
I have snow tires for the car. so no need fro the truck over the winter.
I put storage insurance on it, over the winter. I live in a townhouse so it needs to be licensed
I will need to get the trailer winterized by the end of the month, Have a friend who lives out by the trailer, he will help
Will get the cover on it too.
I will get the stirring box replaced in the spring.
Way to much to do!!

So this is what else I have done, this was a year ago The truck was leaking through the seam of the roof.
everything was wet inside
I a few minutes over Easter weekend plus on the week nights
I have no life. ( NOT BAD FOR A GIRL)
Got the head liner redone also. I cleaned it all off, and got a company called 360 to recover it.

Installed some new Alpine component speakers to replace the front factory components that had started to deteriorate from age. Also replaced the door courteous lights and map incandescent lights with some cob LEDs I initially bought for the TT...what a difference!

Gave it a good bath and detail, bought some replacement headlamp assemblies, ordered a new grill, re-did the crappy factory undercoating and re-painted the skid plate.

Replaced all 16 spark plugs in my HEMI. Used OEM NGK plugs. Coated the threads with anti-seize and the inside of the boots with dielectric grease.

Glad it's done. Some of the plugs were fouled, and the truck runs better now with the new ones. Next chores- change oil/filter, change differential oil, and service transmission. But not today. I'm beat from contorting my body and limbs changing out the rear plugs.

The Hemi has "16" plugs. That's a very expensive replacement job.
