Tires

Just an fyi check your tires before you leave and stop . My wife me and son arrived in Virginia from NY. One of our tires had a 2 by 2 by 1 inch bubble. Would have blown out if we went any further. Don't wanna think about what could have happened if it had blown. They are the steel belted type will get the brand tomorrow and post it . Been up since five and it was a ten hour drive then set up go buy food etc. So please everyone check them tires and they were all properly inflated I always check and fill before a trip plus keep them covered.

Good point and glad to hear there was no damage. We have had a few bulged tires over the years. On the TV they sound like you have a helicopter following you. One year we had installed 4 new tires on the TV and had 3 bulged tires on one 3000 mile trip. We told the tire shop to remove the 4th tire. We had to haul that one home and fight the tire company for the replacement cost.

I check the tire pressure every time we hitch up. At stops I hit the tires and bearings with a heat sensor to see if anything is getting warm.
