Did you file a complaint for each failed tire with NHTSA? If we (RV community) don't file complaints then the quality of tires will never get improved.

Good descriptive pictures of Tread Separation of radial tire.

Good luck, and let us know what you decide.

Where does your spare mount? If not under the RV but on back bumper it is imperative that you have a light color (white preferred) cover for the tire. I have seen tires have belt/tread separations with zero miles use.
I understand the technical reasons which aren't important now other than to say the failure can be delayed or prevented with proper steps.
