Good luck, RickV. That is the kind of day that gives us all nightmares.

Ditch the China bombs. I'd get the replacement tire then pull all 4 and put the up for sale and replace them with 235/85-16 E load LT tires.

Tread seperation

Our 2011 Crusader 270 RET blew two of its OEM tires on our recent trip to Alaska. These were the optional 16" Aluminum Wheels with then 16" tires to match. When we departed Georgia back on May 9th, the tires and wheels had less than 5000 miles on them. By the time we had our first tread separation, we were in Canada, the tires had another 3000 miles on them by then. Had not had any problems until then, tire pressure was checked daily. On our return trip, the next tire that had the tread separate was the original OEM Spare, now with only around 3000 miles on it. By the time we made it to Calgary, we decided to have a new set of Tires installed, and yes, they are China made. They look really nice and have a lot more tread on them than the OEM tires that gave us the tread problem. We are back home in Georgia, come January we will be heading to Florida, yep with the China made tires as well..Wish us luck..

Well got the truck back yesterday problem was the Injector Module cost me $935 parts and labor. Got the tire replaced they prorated it so I had to pay for 20% of the tire plus mouting and balancing. At least I have a spare tire to get home with. I will explore my options once I get home on Sunday.

At least truck is going again!
Hope you have better luck going forward!

A buddy with a class A also had a leak at his antenna control knob, he ended up having to pull the entire assy off the roof and reinstalling with new sealant under and over the mount and the penetrations for knob shaft and cable from antenna.
