Seems to me you have recommended the same as: "if a fuse blows, just replace it with a bigger fuse"...
I first emailed Lippert to find out who might stock the breaker. They told me Camping World and for my system, recommended the 50A because both my landing gear and slide systems are connected to that breaker. Camping world concurred with Lippert's recommendation.

If Camping World says I can run LT tires is it OK?

You know that, I know that, but some others (above) don't feel that way.

It's not their call. That type of recommendation needs come from the vehicle manufacturer. Your owner's manual will probably say the same thing.

Guess they have a problem. Semis which l drove for 35 yrs run rib truck tires on the trailers, nothing special about them. The get jacknifed curb hopped a heck of alot more then an RV. This ST vs LT is nothing but redundent arguments over and over.
Get what works best for you. EOS.

The manufacturer of my trailer recommended and installed LT tires from the factory.

What makes my 5th wheel different than other manufacturers?

Or was my manufacturer more interested in what is best over what is cheap?
