Could be Tom but Eagle has listed it as bogie since 1968 in their books and sells literature.
I was told it came from a railroad term the wheels in front of the drive wheels on a locomotive 
It's ironic that the usual American railroad term for a pivoting four-wheel assembly is a truck, but the Brits call that a bogie.   Over there a road truck is a lorry, or maybe a pantechnicon, artic, HGV or juggernaut !

Maybe we should call them idler wheels if they're on buses ?

I'm still waiting for my rebuild kit to arrive from Luke. Once it comes I'll be carefully rebuilding. I'll let you know how it goes Dave. I sure hope I don't end up with dead wipers

Lol john. I think it was to test roof integrity when bus falls over on its side. Actually quite impressive if you imagine what would happen to an SS rv in the same test. I don't doubt cliff the danger to bus drivers. True story. Some on here reinforced their bus front end for this reason. But look at these Factory RV's

The PD4501 was a 40 foot bus with a rear tag axle that carried as much weight as the drive. The turn radius was under 42 feet.

As nice as Eagles are. . . . , a Scenicruiser has 'em all beat when it comes to curb appeal.   Grin  Cool

Maxxis says their trailer tires are good to 65 MPH.  Not all trailer tires are limited to 55 MPH.  Maxxis trailer tires are easily $20 to $30 more per tire so I understand why folks use Chinese tires.

Cooper also sells truck tires under the Roadmaster name that are made in China.  I use them on my bus and they seem to perform every bit as well as the Firestone tires I was using.

reading the DOT codes for all tires made with the Cooper name on them, they are USA made.... I can only go by what I read on the internet Smiley

What is the plant location code on your tires...?

My new steers were made in Nova Scotia... in April of 2015 Smiley

maybe you missed the part where i said "in my opinion"....

once a tire runs 100 miles under inflated 25% or so it becomes a 55 mph tire at best...again IMO... many people who own travel trailers believe everything salesman tell them...Travel trailers are almost over loaded empty...again IMO Smiley

Have you seen those flex lines that can be installed on the mini split line sets out of box? With normal screw on and tighten connections?

I was looking only only found ones you have to braze together.


unfortunately I have not. From what I understand the other option is to make a complete horizontal loop with the line set where it connects to the condenser. The loop can dissipate the vibration like a spring but I have never tried it because if you flex a semi rigid line enough times it will eventually fail, maybe in your life time , maybe not.
