Thanks for the suggestions, Roger. When I flew out and purchased the Silver Cloud
in Oregon in January, I made sure that it would have new ST tires
, bearings packed, and brakes
checked prior to me picking it up. This has all been done and paid for! New spare, too. As to the valve stems, I will have to wait with that until I get it home, I guess. Hopefully there won't be any problems in that regard. I certainly don't intend to push it by going too fast. I've never towed anything that heavy or long before, so I'll be taking it easy.
Enjoy your spring in Iowa! I believe you're near Tipton, right? My wife grew up in Anamosa and we used to live in Wilton, so we know the area well.
