Installing Goodyear Endurance Tires and Centramatic Wheel Balancers in My Driveway

After reading example after example of the Goodyear Marathon tires having catastrophic failures on Airstream travel trailers I decided I did not want to have the same thing happen to me.  I went round and round in my head between the different options other owners have done – from new wheels with light truck tires to different brands of tires. I finally decided that I would use the Endurance models that are the exact size as the factory put on my trailer when new.  At the same time I added the Centramatics mainly as a feel good measure.  During the video I show and talk about the torque setting to use is 90 but after a couple of viewers pointed out that I was using the wrong setting I looked it up and was proven wrong.  Make sure you check your manual – I should of used 110 foot pounds instead of what I say/show in the video. 

Connecting Your Trailer To Your Tow Vehicle

This is another edition of the video series for my wife to reference if she ever wants to go camping without me or with a friend.  In this video I go over the specifics of hooking up our Airstream to our Ford Raptor with the Equalizer hitch.  Most but not all of the techniques will translate to various other combinations of trailer/truck/hitch’s out there.
