State Farm writes mine. lowboy is overcovered agreed value $10k for like $100/yr. That's from back when it really was worth 5-7. I guess I should make it worth that again soon.

Mike dropped of a 225 for me- i noticed its an F at 36XX lbs.  my Gs are all 39XX lbs rating.


looked at my last scale ticket and it was 21050 on the trailer pad     :o

What's the situation with water fill ports for these things? I am seeing city fill ports and gravity fill ports. Some with vents, some with check valves.

I just want garden hose thread into the tank and I am thinking there needs to be some kind of vent for both filling and using water. Not sure if I would ever really need a check valve.

no garden hose thread just jam it in to fill.  i found one that had the same 1.25" fill and got clear hose in between tank and fill

Does water come out of the vent when it's full with that setup then?

ya, there is a 1/2" hose that i have hooked to the vent port and the top of of the tank.  my tank had 4 nipples.  top fill, top vent, bottom pump flood, bottom drain.

things with check valves AND threaded connections are for "city water hookups" that go on the pressure side of the pump, they're for when you have full hookup and can just use the hose pressure to run your system and ignore the pump and your tank.
