Maybe I helped a few avoid having a bad day by raising the spare tire issue - no pun intended. But, Mikey, you hit the head on the nail - or whatever!

Here is the best fix ever. Take it off and put in the bed of your truck. I'm sure Kathy can do it.....

Or do like AquaMan posted, find the 'sweet' spot and tighten it a little extra.

Has anyone on here just took the spare tire down and put the spare in the basement? So you can have a clean underbelly, is it worth it, gas mileage.

What I meant was the basement of the camper, keep the spare tire in the campers basement, do you think it would help the fuel mileage any, that way I would have a clean underbelly

I really do not think that you will gain any noticeable increase in your MPG.

Good one RedDragon. I bet you knew what he was asking. By the time the air gets to the spare it is about as disturbed as it can get so no, I do not think it will make even a .0001 mi per gal difference.

I don't know thats why I was asking, but I bet it would do a little better than that. But anyway I will not have to worry about spare tire falling off. Anyway you never know

Ours came in the basement, or rather where the generator would normally go. Stays nice, neat, clean and tucked out of the way. Debated doing an underbelly mount at first to free up space but I kind of like it in the basement.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.
