Bill,
Here are the instructions; 2 pages in PDF format.
This is the first time I've done this so if it doesn't work, let me know.

Default Older tires

I am starting worry. We have a 2002 TM and the tires could be as old as 2000 from some of the info posted here. They look fine, no obvious cracks on the surface. How do we determine if we should replace them? Does keeping the unit stored indoor help retain the length of the tire?
Thanks in CBC

Thanks for both pieces of info. I have put them in the TM Reference Library as promised.

Default A/C Drain Hose

This is off then subject here, but in both Bill's & Joe's wheel well pictures I see a A/C drainage hose between the tire and the TM in the wheel well. I don't see this drainage hose in my 2004 3023. Does anyone know where this hose is on the 3023? We haven't used the A/C very often but when we do the condensate runs off the roof close to the door. Thank you for any help you can give on this matter.

John & Marion

These hoses are from the earlier side-mount a/c's.

I retrieved my mud flap from the freeway yesterday. It was in good shape. Apparently the force stretched the holes over the nut heads and that's how it came off. Id say that using big washers would have helped avoid this and likewise would have avoided or lessened the damage to the underside of the trailer.

Ouch! I agree that the big washers (fender washers) noted in my post on mud flaps would have helped. Better yet, a strip of solid metal across the width of the flap would have duplicated the way the flaps are mounted on 18-wheelers. Now THAT is a serious mounting! I admit I didn't do the latter, but I think the fender washers would have prevented the stretch-over that you described. Whether that would have prevented the damage is another question, of course.

If anyone else has installed mud flaps with small washers or no washers, it would be worthwhile to go back and improve the installation.

Thanks for the update, Cheri. It is valuable to all of us.

Bill
