So true. Did not want to wait to come up with another 6-7k for tires before we took it out. Actually the gen works, just got a bad relay, as long as I don't run the rear ac it seems to have any probs

I'm sure you've read where we all preach about the dangers of running on tires over 7 years old? If I were you I'd consider myself lucky it was a tag and only messed up a mud flap!

Bite the bullet and get some new shoes on that puppy so you can enjoy her...

You can get some new BF Goodrich's on there for around $4k. And there's some decent China brands that'll get you down in the mid 3k range.

Chuck,
We had a similar issue with our AC's. What we discovered was that 1 AC was on the left leg and the other 2 and fridge and the bay cooler were on the right leg. I moved one of the AC from the right leg to the left leg and then we did not have any issues after that.
The right leg was just too close to the 50amp mark so than when my wife turned on something else it would trip and shut the power off. Even on shore.

First order of business when we get back. Front tires are michelins. All real rubber. But will replace all of them.
