Anyone have bead balancing in their TV tires?
Does it work?

We use them in our big truck tires at work.
No reason why they wouldn't work in the camper tire.

I use them in my own motorcycle tires. There can be issues so follow the manufacture's guidelines and warnings.

I use something called EQUAL in my trailer tires.

More like a sand than beads....

I have used a product called ride-on. in my motorcyle and utility trailer. Learned about it from a family memeber that user to drive big rigs. Seems to work well plus it add a sealer.

We have the Equal in our 35' GT. Seems to be fine but make sure they use the specified valve stem. The sand can get into the stem when you check air pressure and cause it to leak.

Since we bought used, we had never heard of it until we had a flat on a dual from the leaky core. Fortunately, we did not damage the tire. The shop replaced the core and all is well.
