This week was the time for the tires, and also following the recomendación I remove the mud guards on the hub , it is thinking to low the disk temps, because whit theme on is quite hight in sumer
The tiré I bought when I build the camper were 365 85 and they are big and heavy, but I never pay atention until I get in my hands the 80's, the diference on weight is 30 kg and the rims in 10" are also some kg more than the 11" , in Hutchinson all of theme, for sure they are diferent rated about weight, much more strong the 10", the diference on the stering is big , no noise also whit the MPT81 contis , so big mistake I did whit the wheels ...now they are for sale ...tires and Rims

I fitted 365/85’s and it killed my acceleration and braking. I also think they are too heavy for our little portals. Went back to XZL 365/80’s and they handle like a dream. Expensive mistake. Try and balance them. I use stick on weights and then add a thick bead of Sika around them. Makes a big difference.

Yes...big mistake because also the 10" rims are a mistake for these trucks, I hope I would recover some money selling the old wheels , It was a big deal to found this rims here in Europe used...

Yes Ian , thats true, you can not imagine how easy is to change the tires , the Main job is to tite all the bolts, as you mention when we meet the weight diference is amazing
Now Im involved fiting the Acc machine , there is no way here in sumer to sleep in the night whitout Acc
I Will fit the evaporador in the Roof rak , and the condenser on the room, this machine is 900w 24 volts, The comsuption must to be 7.5 Amps/hour. I think it is ok to use it few hours, the truck can be like one ice cream truck......

It'll be interesting to see real world use on this, the lowest setting of 630W (7.5 amp 24v) is doable with a decent battery bank.

Its worth seeing it up and running a meter on it to see how much it does draw.
 
This was the Main reason to buy it wyuna, I dont know if is 100% true, but , by the numbers looks like it is like this, I Will plug anyway the amperímeter to see it, I read in some forums about this machine and many coments are positive, I Will confirm, thanks for the imputs
