Good afternoon all. I have a 2011 Rockwood camper model 2317G. On the way back from New York State in July, we had a tire blow on a major highway. Assisted by a tire man driving by, we put the spare on but he stated that the C range tires were too small for this trailer as it weighed 3314 gross. The tires were rated for 1480 each. I took side roads home driving with white knuckles but made it. I started calling around and spoke to the National Highway Traffic Safety admin in Washington, 3 tire stores and searched the www. The tires were right on the max for this trailer but no doubt at or over the limit on the drivers side as this trailer has a dinette slide. I called Forest River left a message and also my dealer in Owen Sound Ontario, Canada. My dealer was useless and told me to take them to an authorized dealer. They also said that FR wont call me back but FR did. I spoke about the weights, the slide and the info from tire reps. FR sent me 3 new D range tires and rims. FR made arrangements for another dealer. I drove up , 45 miles white knuckles again and they watched me pull in and said I was lucky as the right tires belts were broken. Tires changed. Got home and continued researching this issue. Well the VIN placards and door sticker were wrong stating 65 psi. They should only have 50. I contacted Transport Canada and they initiated an investigation for both issues. Last week, FR sent me new placards for the trailer for the original tires. PLEASE ensure you match the tire psi and NOT the placards.
THANK YOU TO FOREST RIVER.
Take care and happy camping.
