Anyone who drives an RV should have to watch these videos.

RV Tire Information Videos.
http://www.michelinrvtires.com/michelinrv/toolbox/videos-demos.jsp
They are about 20 minutes long, so if you have a dial up it may take quite a while. You can request a copy of the video to be sent to you.

THANK YOU, Rodger. Those were both very informative to me. Very, very informative. I am always worried about a blow-out (under inflated tire!) I now have the confidence to handle it should it occur.
I agree, EVERYONE should view these films.

Excellent - thank you - I did NOT know how to handle a blow out as they described - now I do.

Thanks Rodger. I never knew any of that information.

I can't get this on dial up (too slow - times out) Can anyone give me the gist of handling a blowout? thanks

It looks like their web site is down right now. The video talks about how you should accelerate when you get a blow out, but there is a lot more to it. The other video talks about load weights.
You can order the videos, I think for free, from their web site. (They are definitely worth getting.)
I will keep an eye on the site to make sure the link is still working.
Its working again.

Good videos. Just FYI, Michelin sent me the free videos about 3 days after my request. My dial-up (or security setup) just wouldn't run the videos online. Glad I watched & really glad I drive a Class B with visually accessible tires.

Since I'm on dial-up, I ordered the videos last night. Thanks, Rodger! Of course, we all know that Michelins don't blow out , but for those of us who are stuck temporarily with lesser brands of tires....

Soon as I get my 'new' wheels, I'm going to do some serious tire shoppng, and consider dumping the Firebooms, instead of remounting them...

BTW, an infrared thermometer is an easy way to check for an underinflated tire at each stop; just point and pull the trigger. A low tire will run hotter than its mate on the same axle.
