I just joined the forum. We have an '09 Solera which we purchased new early last year. Currently we have a little over 8K miles on it. We love this motorhome! But, we did have an incident yesterday...
While traveling home yesterday, 2 hours from home driving 12 hours, we heard a loud "woosh", soon followed by a lot of loud thumping. We pulled over and found both RR tires FLAT.
We are not sure what happened, but based upon the sequence of events it appears that all this was caused by a faulty extender, which failed on the inside tire, causing the woosh, and after that tire went flat the overloaded outside tire lasted only a while longer then blew from the load!
Thanks to the Good Sam Roadside Assistance we were back on the road in 3 hours.
Great service, especially considering it was a holiday weekend.
The inside tire appears to be fine, is still holding air and is now our spare. We replaced it with a new tire, and put the original spare on the outside. Now I also need to buy a new chrome wheel simulator and extenders as all of that flew off and was lost during this event.
Never a dull moment....
