I have 19.5 inch tires. Does Les Schwab stock these, too?

If it were bad enough to need chains, park and wait out the storm. I haven't used chains since I had a van in the early 1970's. Way too much bother. I would also think if you had them on, they would shake, rattle, and roll your MH and all it's contents.

If you need to install chains, carry some 2x8's (or whatever size is best for you) x12 inch long (or what you need). Place these boards under the inside duals. This will allow for the outside tire to be above the ground so you can adjust the chains more easily.

Sorry I don't know the answer to that question. I had purchased chains for my cars and pickups and they had that policy. I did not ask about it when I purchased the chains for my RV. When I get back to Oregon I'll ask at the Medford dealer that sold me the chains.

I do not drive in snow!!!!!!!!! Therefore chains are not needed and not carried. I'm not a bit worried about having to park for a couple of days to wait out the snow. No one is going to force me out into bad roads because I have exceeded the stay limit.

Dang it Brad your two days too late. I ordered a set and they shipped two days ago and should be arriving this weekend. I am hoping they never come out of the box, but both OR and WA require you to have them and I do not plan to store the MH this winter....

Brad- If you still have your chains, could you tell me if they will fit my 245/70R/19.5 tires? Usually the box will show what size tires the chains will fit. If the box shows that they would fit my tires, I'd be happy to pay the postage if you want to get rid of them.
I see your in Ore.-as am I. Where are you located? Thanks
Holt

That's what we do. I would not even consider driving in weather that required chains...we aren't in that big if a rush.

See now I wish I could do that. But as I'm still working a regular job I'm forced to drive that weather. Luckily for me though I don't have some big rig to drive around. I've just got my little 21' class c
