Thanks to everybody who e-mailed or posted on Facebook hoping I was doing well after my fall on Monday. I’m a bit sore but not too bad overall.
Yesterday I checked the tire pressure on the inside dual where we had the replacement wheel installed on Monday and so far, so good. I wanted to be sure there wasn’t any other problem before we hit the road. Sitting on the shoulder of the highway waiting for roadside service is no way to enjoy the RV experience.
Today I plan to replace all of the batteries in my TireTraker tire pressure monitoring system. They are a lot easier and cheaper to do than our previous system, which required replacing the entire sensor, for a lot more money.
On the subject of RV tires, here is yet another horror story related to a tire failure. According to an article on Gainesville.com, the motorhome’s front left tire separated, causing the driver to hit the guardrail, and then it caught fire. Fortunately nobody was injured, but it sure makes you wonder what the heck is going on with the tire industry these days.
And it makes me glad we just replaced our Winnebago’s Goodyears, which were separating. Folks, check your tires before EVERY trip, and do a walk-around every time you make a pit stop. It only takes a couple of minutes and it can save your RV and your life.
