I'm not sure and frankly I'm not sure if he has ever replaced them. I will have to check next time I'm down his way. He uses it the same as me (we usually go together each trip).. typically 5 trips a year (memorial, 4th, labor day, columbus day and a 5 day trip in August).
Trips are within 3 hours of the house at most. His trailer is very tall and about 38 feet long so he does not like to travel far because of the sway (won't get into that subject) when the winds are blowing good.
Wife and I would like to go further distances but the kids are still too young (2 and 5) to travel long distances.
