flat tires

no problems with our Jayco Eagle fifth wheel for two years...then two blow outs on the way south to California

we are careful about inflation and covering tires during times parked in the sun.

tires look brand new, but we had to replace all four to feel comfortable making it on this trip

any thoughts or suggestions?

How old are the tires?

It's also time to replace the spare tire.

Are you running a tire pressure monitor system on these new ones. If not you should be. Cheap insurance which could have alerted you prior to the blowouts.

May have nothing to do with the age, but rather the marginal quality and load range of the tires.
