    My gripe with my present KM2s is having been gypped a half inch on their size (35x12.50 should be advertised as a 34.5x12.50 if they aren't going to make it a full 35" like Goodyear, Toyo, and some...

    Certainly that's your opinion. The many family & I have owned don't bear that out at all.

    I've always lightly tapped on the knob to lower the flame that last bit. This lets me get the flame down low without it actually going out.

    Threads like this are why I always stuck with wet batteries such as the Delco Voyager. Optimas (AGMs in general) are cool in that they don't spill or leak if inverted, however my thought is I'll...

    Are your shackles at the rear of the springs set up in such a manner that putting longer ones on would give you a bit of lift? If so, I'd suggest going that route.

    My KM2s are smooth and vibration-free up to about 75 MPH, but do vibrate a little bit above that speed. I have little reason to go that fast though, partly because my mileage tanks by 4-5 MPG (I...

    That's system battery voltage, not that of the panels. ;)

    You should ALWAYS check the SWR of your antenna after installation, as well as any time a problem is suspected (as is the case here). There is no other way to know whether your...

    I'd leave it alone for right now until after you get a SWR meter on your antenna, and then go from there. It may be fine just as it is simply due to the rack's size (assuming the brackets & stuff...
