Well, ya damn sure talk enough and have an opinion so what product is in you're mind. If it's not the one we carry, why aren't you kindly asking us to carry it? If you want an outside reference, just post it, nobody's feelings will be hurt.

Now we're getting a bit testy.
Take a nice big breath before you post and you won't come off looking like something you probably don't want to. FWIW.

Damn was the wrong word, no question. Sorry about that 2air and I mean that. I just did my homework and you we're right.

Does this stuff stay put when you are parked for extended periods?

It forms a gelatinous coating that does stay put for some time. Read up on it and please scrutinize it for all of us. That is what we need.

In my experiences with Ride-On, you WILL get some puddling if you stay in one spot for a while.

That said, the liquid will re-distribute itself once you get rolling again and will restore the smooth ride.

to seal or not to seal, that is the question, whether tis nobler...

OK, sorry I referenced 'fix-a-flat' in the post title, but we all learn as we go, yknow, that's what this forum does best.

tire sealant, it is. watch out for the pudding. got it.

seems like the tension created by vendors recommending their products could be tempered by erring on the side of discretion in the recommendation, ya? just a thought... from one who understands how a person could take umbrage with info that could be taken as a sales pitch...

single-axle trailers really NEED a flat-avoiding strategy, I believe, hence my post. especially if you're pushing toward that state park at sunset and don't like setting up in the dark. a flat could really ruin your night...and possibly your trailer.

since I'm nowhere near Inland Andy and his Super Snap On Tool I'm also gonna be posting soon about alternative wheel/drum/hub balancing strategies and I DON'T want to get anyone flamed up, just to clarify some conflicting/confusing conclusions in my re/search.

this forum still rocks, even when the Marshalls are cranked up to ten and slightly overheating.... ride on.. with gratitude, to the many alumi-gurus..

yep, i agree.

and that's why we mentioned using these liquid sealants originally.

the products all pool, some are the consistency of buttermilk +/- based on how much water/glycol is in the mix...

the local bmw motorbike dealer and the h-d shop each carry a different brand.

given where you live, some local nola gravy might work!

cheers
