    Hi Phoenix! This is quite a bit late but I just accidentally found received Thanks messages and saw yours regarding GPS coordinates for dry camping in South Fork, CO. I can't remember if I replied but I don't have GPS coordinates... sorry about that. I'm sorry this is so late. I think I gave some directions for the Beaver Creek CG in my original post, just no GPS coordinates. The dry camping sites I want to try next time are above the nearby city of Creede. You can go thru town and access the Bachelor Loop from the south end. The Loop is a very good dirt road and you can find these sites a mere five minutes outside of town. The visitor center at the south end of town has drinking water and can point you to a free local sewage dump.

    Again, sorry for not getting back to you - I just didn't know about finding Thanks messages. I hope you are well and traveling on the road. Take care!

    The friend who had his AS repaired in Tucson after a rear blowout on his 34-ft took out his waste tank valve is not, to the best of my knowledge, a member of the forum. For some reason (beyond my comprehension) he still thinks that GYM's are the way to go. His rationale is that the number of GYM blowouts is only indicative of the fact that some many of them are out there, so that statistically, as a percentage of all GYM's, it is a safe tire. He only tows at 55 mph. He has seen my all-new running gear, including the 16" Michelins.

    When the GYM blew on my AS, it took out the trim as well, but also did some damage to the inside of the wheel well. JC patched that damage and changed the trim. The new trim is not exactly like the original, but it would take a fine eye to see the difference. I don't know the exact cost of this, as JC also changed my axles, wheels and tires (all new running gear).

    Good point on the two Senior passes! I am retired but waiting on the wife. Maybe 2 more years before she retires.

    Thanks for the info on my second tire failure. I'm rolling on the spare (Westlake - 2 of the original 4 had tread separation). I did get a General steel belted ST tire, and when I am at JC in about 5 weeks to repair the damage to the wheel well and change my 27 year old axles, I'll be having an inside the rim TPMS system installed and the Westlake will go back to being a spare. My intent is to replace the 4 running tires this year, but I'm not sure of which brand to go with for the 15" ST225-SR15(E) tires.

    Hello Phoenix, followed your advice and got new Michelins today (per your spec) at Costco. The ride is a little different but very good so far (1 day in). Thanks so much for offering your two cents. Next up--TT tires...a very different issue and decision.

    See you on down the road!
