Tuff day of travels

We had a blow out, luckily no damage to rig. I believe it was cause i do not tow any faster than 55 mph or basically keep it safe.

No damage and no one hurt is always good. What's that tire make? Appears to have significant tread left.

Blow outs suck, but if your rig wasnít damaged thatís good news. Did you change the tire yourself or did you use a roadside service?

Currently Cedar Creek puts truck tires on their heavier rigs. So Iím curious, was the tire that failed a trailer tire (ST) or a truck tire (LT).

That is a classic example of tire separation. It never ceases to amaze me that the industry isn't held to the same dot regulations as motor vehicles. Those tires are going to kill someone. Just changed mine. Glad no one was hurt.

Those tires are mode boss they're considered a heavy duty load carrying tire . rated at 3900 pounds per tire total load range 15600. I am going to switch to a F rated tire that rated for 16000. Lbs probably A good year or good rich. Their pricey but much safer.

Repeat: if you do not want to be afraid of tire issues, buy a tire pressure monitoring system. Make sure you know how to and DO use it. Will not prevent a flat BUT will alert you immediately before ( heat build up) or at time of event ( air pressure loss) and you can immediately stop.
I would not travel without it! Last blowout I had was $3200 damage. Cost me $1300 out of pocket. $1000 deductible plus new tire.
Heck my tire separated and shred and never felt anything unusual in the steering at 62 mph. Thankfully a bus came alongside and alerted us!

Do you all use the monitoring systems on motor homes too? What do you recommend and what can I expect to pay for a 6 tire system?

And you can try to prevent tires from blowing but by monitoring the tire pressure weather and it gets hot or it's a low does help but when it's time for tired of blowing its not going to tell me that on the pressure monitor I got my money's worth out of those tires I've had him for 7 years had shown hardly any sign of wear and tear and I didn't know it's about time to change them out I have a tough time replacing tires that don't look worn

Tire and RV damage

My tires were 2 years old, properly inflated and checked daily. No signs of wear or alignment issues. Separated and blew quickly. This was prior to tire pressure monitors purchase. Steel belts acted like a whip and bent slide frame and ripped out underbelly coroplast and more. And yes, an alarm would have gone off and perhaps if I noticed and stopped quickly it would possibly saved my wallet some pain. Each case is different. If I can travel at 62mph and not feel a thing, imagine possible accident if other tire blew and control was lost?! Not good!
My Michelin truck tires looked brand new. Replaced all at 45,000 miles because they were 6 years old. 5 years would be max on RV tires for me. This is an industry wide weakness. My unit is a 2015 and will see new tires in 2017 or sooner. As we say in motorcycling, the only thing that separates your butt from the road is your rubber! Nothing makes a day worse than lying in the street!
TPMS may not cure all, but it may save you from an accident!
Be safe out there.
