Found pics

I found the pics. The tire goes up inside of the frame rails otherwise it will hang down to low I think . The tire winch was $15.00 at pick and pull. It can be bolted in but I was welding alot in the trailer at the time so it was easy at the time. Dave

Neil,
I didn't see your spare tire location. A pic would be great. Well shoot. I really didn't want to cut a hole in the belly pan. I just might have to keep looking or really think outside of the aluminum on this one.

Great pics Dave. How do you crank it down once the new floor goes in? Does the tire hang below the belly pan or is it half and half?

The pic of the front of the trailer shows a 1/2 drive ratchet that goes in an old socket that I welded to the factory shaft that comes with the winch. The ratchet comes out when not in use. I hope that is most of the time. I do not have the pan on yet but I think it is going to hang down about 2" and I am going to make a pan to go over the tire when I do the whole pan. Like I said you are welcome to take a look if you want the floor is down now but the pan is not so it is easy to see. Dave

Ok, Robert I just in from taking, hopefully, enough pictures of my s-tire mount. As you know a convertible TV leaves little room to carry an additional tire and in spite of those who question the need for a s-tire with tandem axles I would feel more secure having the spare with me. Also during my recovery process from hip(s) replacement crawling around under to wrestle a spare was nearly impossible for me. I was tempted to have the spare mounted behind the propane tanks but like you the aluminum on the front of the coach is the most pristine I have and covering it with a spare was not really an option. Dave's suggestion is attractive to me so maybe when my hips are 'secured' in time I will reconsider that route.
So my solution intended to be temporary but do you know what?....it's working so moving the spare has dropped way down on my priority list. I thought the location may be unappealing to the eye but there is so much other 'stuff' going on the tonque that I and apparently others hardly notice it. In fact no one has asked me about it.
My mounting is basic. Draw the tire up against the A of the tonque and as far back as possible for it not to interfere with the WDH. I placed a C- channel across the tonque next to the front of the coach, drilled a hole for an all-thread rod and placed a bracket on the the bottom end of the all-thread to support the wheel. I used a perhaps a longer than necessary all-thread so that I can lower/raise the tire to the ground. You will note that I placed another 2 C-channels to protect the gas line. It is my intention to re-route the gas line then the tire can be 2" closer to the bottom of the coach frame. Also I am fortunate that I have those rare stabilizers that also conveniently help secure the tire. However I do travel with a safety chain to 'catch' the tire should the all-thread fail. That is probably THE weak link in this which I will change down my road of life. Perhaps it gives you an idea. THERE...it took longer to present this than it took to create the tire mount!

Neil,

Your the man..... Thats exactly what I was looking for. Great pics of such detail with dial up speed just amazes me.

What type of bar did you use under the tire for support? Does it extend all the way across the left and right sides?

Karma coming your way my friend...

The 'bar' to support the (hold up the bottom of wheel/tire) is from an old pole/pipe stand that I had. I think I have the other one to which is yours if you want and if I can find. You see in the picture that I placed bolts on the ears of the Ts. That is to slip into to lug holes in the wheel for preventing any shifting of the wheel. I don't bolt the wheel to that. The hose on the all-thread is so it doesn't saw the gas line which I should move anyway. Instead of the all-thread perhaps a heavy eye bolt and chain fastened to the T may be better. Another eyebolt at the other end of the short chain can be the bolt to the channel bridge across the A frame. The bottle of Placerville Pacifico (a doorgunner quip) is for a size comparison plus, Lynn, says I get a tomale for dinner. The rachet box wrench is what I use to lower the tire all-thread quickly. So my Tomale is ready. I get my tomale today. Sorry...old joke.
Neil.
