Well I looked at mine over the weekend, looks like all 6 are on the list, they all have a date code of 4711. Now I have to find a place that can handle the rig to get them changed.

Yes it's not easy. A couple of ways.

1) Lay on your back and see if the date is visible at ground level between the tires. This can't be done on rear side where the exhaust lies
2) Use a small flashlight and look through each rim hole for the date

I had to use both methods.

How did you check your inner duals without taking the outside dual off?

I couldn't check my inside tires without removing the outside tire. My tire guy said as a general rule they would usually fall within the time period. He replaced all 6 of mine and said come back and see me when you need some more tires. I said, CERTAINLY!

Turns out all six of our tires are on the recall list. We are taking it in tomorrow to a Ford dealer for an oil change and tire replacement. Hopefully there will be no issues. Actually happy the tires are part of the recall as they are all cracking and I was probably going to have to replace them myself.

Checking inner DOT markings

I was able to use my bigfoot levelers to lift the rear tires off the ground just enough so I could look between the tires with a flashlight and rotate them until I could see the DOT numbers.

Had to replace all 6 of mine. A local shop replaced them with MS2s last week.

Michelin tire recall

I received a letter from Jayco, it said the tires on my 2013 Redhawk might have a recall. After checking the tires, I took it to a Ford Dealer. They replaced all 6 tires

All six tires on our 2012 Melbourne 29D were included in the recall. Could not find a Michelin dealer or any other tire dealer in the area with equivalent replacement tires. Finally ordered through the largest local Michelin dealer and told them I'd take whatever brand they got in next. Took about three weeks, but they replaced the recalled tires with B F Goodrich tires. All costs covered by Michelin, and the new tires seem to ride as well or better than the old ones.

If you haven't done so yet, try to get them to replace your tires with Michelin XP Ribs. Said to be the best summer tire that last and last.

All 6 on my 2012 Greyhawk are recalled. Took it to Ford, since the tires come with the Ford chassis. At first the service people would not talk to me but when the warranty manager got involved they did, and I was told this should be taken care of by Ford and they ordered 6 new tires, but unfortunately, they are on back order.
