Sorry, let me be specific. If a rear tire, perhaps at night is sloooly leaking, when it gets low enough, it will shred and tear things apart!
If sealant could save the destruction of your trailer it might be worth the goo.

TPMS would be great. Trying to decide if I can afford a set. I called the manufacturer of them and the batteries will not work in colder weather which of course could be a big part of our trip south.

Yes, but how much of your trip is colder weather?

Sounds like you have already decided that 'goo' is what you are going to do regardless of all the suggestions and opinion....so....

My suggestion and opinion is that you squirt the 'goo' into your tires.

I carry a can for that odd emergency or to give to someone else that is desperate on the road.
Not going to use it in advance of actual trouble. Also have a mounted spare, plugs, jack, 12v compressor and torque wrench.

Cummins. That’s the problem. I don’t trust any tire manufacturers. The specs they claim do not standup under scrutiny.
I recently compared the stiffness of two tires. The higher side wall ply rating on one was easier to depress that the one with a lower side wall ply rating??
The tire shop manager commented they all have different standards regardless of claims.

Regarding a sticky repair. I have never needed to repair one. Once they leak or separate ( which has been my most often situation) I replace with new gamble.


“E” rated USMade GY Endurance for one has a stellar record and rated at over 75 mph.

That's what your TPMS is for. Forget the goo in the tires
