A lot of side wall damage can be avoided. Do not curb tires like hired drivers do. It happens in tight spots going in and out of parking lots, street corners, etc. Look in your mirrors to know where your rear tires are. If they are going to run over the curb, stop and back up to take the turn wider. Ignore the line up of cars behind you. They'll have to wait a couple of minutes. Curbing tires is a major cause of tire failure. Often doesn't fail right away, but the damage is done, then heat from under inflation will later cause the failure. Tires need to be babied every day.

good to know, thanks
but you're right, they are not cheap.

with the 3M's u learn quickly that 3-4 digits will cover the circumference of 12 ga. and 3 digits for smaller...and then where to start the adhesion so the number sits where you want it, (saves $$) if you are OCD in that regard.

rewiring chopped spaghetti is an OCD endeavor IMO, or don't Smiley (find someone who is Smiley )

107 seems low to me,
Low volts allows the unit to pull higher amperage which generates more heat.



that and factor high ambient temp in the bay and then age wear on the compressor and possibly a bad time delay (slug) the inrush start currents at 107v just isn't going to work for two units.
does one or the other function separately ?
good luck.

Update: took batts to O’reillys in hopes they can charge them. Turns out these batts were bought in 2011 so their life may be up. Will know shortly i guess depending on what the charge result is.

Im actually more worried about the inverter not working but everything points to it shutting down for safety reasons bc of low volts but im just not sure yet.
Some inverters can be very finicky about batteries. I have seen inverters that would not charge even with bringing the voltage up by another means, but they work fine once bad batteries are replaced.

Front axle on DL3 is 115 Psi for 12Rx22.5 on 8.25 wheels my 315/80 x22.5 on 9 inch wheels on the front axle I go 120 psi,a almost fully inflated tire will build up less heat so say the tire manufactures 
Hey Clifford how do the bus manufacturers arrive at thier recommended pressures? Are they according to the maximum allowed loading per the axle? Is there any consideration given toward ride quality or handling? Or purely by weight? I have always used the tire manufacturers recommendations according to weight on my bus and truck/trailers. (Anything heavy basically). Should I rethink my strategy? In your opinion is there an advantage to one method over the other? I'm genuinely interested in the pros and cons of the different methods. Inquiring minds want to know, lol.

Hey Jeff, Grin
I run 100 PSI all the way around on my bus. It keeps things simple. Good luck with your bus,
Will
Thats what i do as well
