New MH Questions!

We now own a 2006 HR Admiral SE 31' 30PDD
And we have questions
We got a break on the cost because the tires are at 7yrs old (Dunlop SP 548s) but what are the best current type/style of tires to replace them with?
These seem to have been very good ones when new, but prices for the same spec now go online from $100 to over $400 and we know nothing.

The other burning question is Cover or no cover? We have an RV space on the property, but no cover. Are the any good fabric covers? Do we need one?

It is also prewired for upgrading the house batteries from 2 to 4.
Have read many that say it is necessary and just as many say a waste of money... Can't be both!

Also has a solar charging interface ( but the panel that came with is is trashed and unusable ) so should we add that? The DW hates the sound of the generator...

We want to start this one out right. Any advice gratefully accepted!

It has been a while since I bought motorhome tires, so will yield to others on that one, but have had good results with the Goodyear G670. I am not a fan of RV covers unless you mean a roof over the RV pad. The cloth covers are a chore to put on and take off and if you have a lot of wind they can rub places on the RV.

On batteries, the number you need just depends on how you use it. You probably have two 6V batteries now and you need 2 in series to get 12V. If you travel like we do and rarely stay more than one night in a place with no shore power, the 2 batteries will serve you just fine but if you plan to spend a lot of time camping where you do not have shore power, then 4 batteries would be a very good upgrade, especially if you will be in places that require use of the furnace. Solar is by far the best answer for those who are true boondockers and spend lots of time where there are no power connections. For people like us who rarely are without shore power it would be a waste of money.

What Kirk said. Check out the many many tire post here. You can spend hours reading about tires. As for solar panels, you would need several panels along with a 4 to 6 batterie bank to reduce the generator use very much. A portable 2,000 watt Honda generator would be my choice. Set it 75' away from the coach and you will barely hear it. 8 hours on a gallon of gas is pretty cheap.
