Yes, our Jensen went "black & no camera" after just a year. Can't remember name of new radio for sure, but it was $900. Does Access Audio sound right? Maybe that's the dealer name Dealer laughed when I said our Jensen went bad Dealer installed the new one

So what should we talk about? I am not winterized. The MH is in its garage for now, but recently returned from CA and will be going back soon. Also going to Phoenix for Billy Joel and then on to Tucson. Wow, is finding a four night stop in an RV Park in or near Pheonix in March ever a pain. So far haven't found one. Anyone want to share the month of March in Mesa?

Unfortunately we are winterized, now for the second Winter in a row. Last year we cancelled our winter south, so my wife, who is not very mobile due to acute Spinal Steonsis, could get in to a therapy program to improve that mobility.

Then this past April she was diagnosed with two separate cancers (not related, though). So radiation from mid-Summer thru Fall, which at this point appear to be successful, has taken the "zap" out of her, so we're still in dry dock. If her follow up tests in January turn out OK, we hope to be on our way by February.

Enough about us.....What's everyone else up to ??

Looking to replace Michelin 235/80R22.5 Tires with Toyo Tires. Have been reading that the M154 or M170's are well liked. What specific size are a good replacement for the Michelins on the Challenger?

Can't answer your question, but one thing to consider is that I have heard the Toro's sometimes stink, literally. May only matter if you garage it.

Not posting a reply But I have a question.

New inquiry: I Have a 15 Thor Challenger 37KT and I am looking into removing the carpet from the large Slide and replacing it with Laminate wood flooring to match the existing floor color. Has anyone here done this and if so what type of trim did you use to allow the slide floor to meet the coach floor evenly and will not get caught on the floor edge. I have researched this and there are some trims that would work but i want to use the best option and not miss anything.

Thanks in advance,

Russell Sapp

Important heads up for all who tow!! We have a 2012 Challenger 37KT. The attached picture shows that the frame is failing and was almost catastrophic. We flat tow and have not exceeded mfg limits. Please check yours for your safety and others!!

Well I was going to say it is nice to see some activity in this thread, but not this way. First I have heard of this problem.

Scary. I am glad you caught it early. I would file an NHTSA complaint as this should never happen if towing within the allotted towing capacity. Thanks for bringing this to our attention which should remind everyone the importance of double checking everything periodically.

We are arriving on Friday night...have granddaughter duty the beginning of the week, so we had to arrive late. DW and I are Challenger wanna be owners. Plan on taking the plunge spring 2020 about 9 months before I retire...We are hoping to go full-time for at least a year to see if we want to stay FT.

Upgrading

We are heading to the Boston RV show this weekend and likely going to upgrade from our 2018 Mallard 245 TT into a Challenger 37KT. Anything I should watch out for?
