Yes Mr. Helper, I understand all of what you wrote, but I'll more clearly state my position, "I don't care." :)

No clearance issues with 85s on my 2016, 3711FL, and I can care less about "invalidating" the tire placard.

I've never had a second spare nor have I ever needed one. If I ever make that bucket list Alaska trip, I think I'd carry two for the RV and two for the TV.

I chose to get Sailuns a couple of years ago based on their reputation, and because the GY Endurance did not then have a reputation. Today, I would still buy Sailuns over GY (at equal price) knowing...

Your Trailer King tires have excelled since 2015, because they're reportedly one of the worst of the China bombs. I'd recommend Sailuns if your wheels are rated at 110psi.

I'm not sure what the solution should be, but 3-4 seconds delay is the difference between an accident, or no accident. Needs correcting.

Cushioned pinboxes like a Morryde and others only provide horizontal relief, so no. Since you have airbags, try increasing the psi. My experience is that some roads are so poor that feeling like...

If you're not boondocking, your two 12v batteries will be enough, as long as you maintain them, including using a small solar battery maintainer while the rig is in storage.
