Yes, Sailuns are Chinese, but to my knowledge, they're the only one with no complaints from us complainers. Well, I did see one, but there was no conclusion on whether or not it failed from a road...

And if you do have a bit of a ragged cut, just hand sand with a sanding block. I think 120 should do it.

It was probably the weak breaker. WRT it being 2qts low, I think that's dealer speak for we don't know what's wrong. Any leakage from the pistons is minimal, and the 2qts would show somewhere in...

Simpletire.com usually has the best prices if you can't find Sailuns locally. They also partner with local installers and can deliver the tires to them instead of you.

The Park Advisor App will show low bridges, although I don't trust it explicitly. I consider my 3711FL to be 13'6" as I've never measured it.

I'd also guess its poor glue adhesion. If not fixed now and after many opening/closing cycles, I suspect there will be cracking or tearing. If KS refuses to fix, if it were me, I'd get a glue...

Suggest you do a good PSI. Plenty of posts here describing how to. Should take about 3 hours, and don't sign for the unit before you're satisfied.

I feel uncomfortable doing 70ish or over, as I've done while passing slower moving vehicles. Sixty-five is comfortable for me.

The cheap sensors/lights are worthless, IMHO. I usually dump every 4-5 days if it's just the two of us, and even then, there's not much in there.

Had one on my last truck because I dropped the pinbox on it! No noticeable fuel difference. My hitch sits high in the truck bed so I can't use a cover for security.

Yep, LR E cheapies are what came with my '16 3711FL. These big FWs need LR G at 110psi. Also, make sure the wheels are rated for 110psi.

I've seen outriggers on SOBs that are allowing the walls sag, but I've personally never seen it on a MT. I don't think yours looks bad. Keep an eye on it to see if gets worse.
