Also did around $1,000 of damage to the trailer from the blowout.Attachment 110439Attachment 110440

1. Looks like a Tread Separation so I would classify as a factory issue not due to low inflation leak
2. A complaint should be filed with NHTSA
3. Tire should be replaced
4. Damage should be paid for by tire company/RV company as they made the tire and selected the tire supplier.
5. You should not have to file insurance claim that would probably affect your future rates.
6. You should not have to pay any deductible. let the dealer file complaint with their insurance company for selling a defective product.
7. Can you post the DOT serial so we can learn which tire company actually made the tire?
