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.
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.
I bought this a year ago but I always had something else that I need to do but finally on our last camping trip I decided I would install it. What a dummy…I should of installed the Oxygenics when I bought it. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
I am working on a series of videos that my wife can reference if she ever wants to or needs to go it alone. The series starts with getting your trailer and tow vehicle ready for a trip and continues through hooking trailer up to tow vehicle then on to setting up camp and finally to getting home.
We are in Sweetwater, TN for a week. Going to the Rat Terrier Jamboree this weekend being held at the Sweetwater KOA.
