Spirit Lake to Lewisville and joining the RAD club +2

We left Spirit Lake on Monday @ 7am heading to Wichita for the first leg. Fortunately it was 8 degrees , had 4" of snow Saturday night and that for the most part, kept roads frozen until we drove out of snow. This was our first cold weather trip in this coach, had heat running for 2 days in heated shop before leaving and were very comfortable traveling, actually had to turn heat down. Other than Iowa's terrible rough roads we had a good day.
Tuesdays walk around before leaving I noticed a puddle under radiator so looks like I've joined that club. Still in warranty til July so will deal with it at home. Going thru OK City picked up a head stud in rleft side tag, still had the nut on it and went nut first thru tire. I have everything with me to pull wheel but was within 5 miles of tire shop so made it there with 60#s still in tire. I was in a hurry to get backed in and rubbed a curb with right side tag, of course it put a slice in sidewall so now its 2 new tags at NIRV Thursday! I have to keep reminding myself of what a friend of mine says-"fun ain't cheap".

I think most of us have been there. Get in a hurry, or out of patience at the end of the day, and do something that you smack yourself about.

I also agree about the cold weather ops of these coaches. Heat is not an issue in the winter time. I did find out this past December that it takes almost no snow if it's wet to stick our coaches. I almost couldn't get out of my level gravel driveway with just a couple inches of the wet stuff. Just no traction and enough snow to prevent the gravel from helping. Sounds like the dry snow was better.

When backing out, did you remember to dump the pressure on the tag axle so more of the load was on the drive axle?

Tire

I have been there with the radiator twice. Took both times 10 days down.
If he was backing up then the air was dropped out of the tag. When we were on our first trip stopped at a little gas station. Not sure how high the canopy was so went & looked. DW was going to move the coach forward but I had stopped on ice. Of course it just spun the tire. Had her dump the air & moved with forward without any trouble.
Where we park it before I took down a tree & widening the turn I had to back Up & bend the mud flap. Found out at Spartan factory that there is a pink wire that you can put a switch on to keep the air in the tag if you want to. Was going to do that but now donít have to. Use to have the diagram but canít find it now.

Yes, so much so I wished I had a golf tee in the front drawer. Dumping the tag did help! I had to turn around and I got partially stuck 3-4 times. Was always able to change direction to get out of it, or spin the tires through it.
