With spring in the air, many of you will be bringing the RV out of its winter mothballs and prepping to hit the road. Most of us give our tires a quick once over. Checking the tread wear, inflating them to proper PSI and inspecting them for defects.
But one often overlooked check is the tires age. An RVs tire may look perfectly fine with lots of tread left but if older has the potential to be rotted out from the inside.
In that condition, a blowout tends to be more catastrophic usually causing damage to the RV wheel well area as the main tread area peels away from the tire body and flaps around violently until the rig can be safely pulled over. If plumbing or electrical wiring is nearby the damage can get very expensive and leave you waiting for repairs when you should be enjoying the trip.
