I started camping in 2000, when I pick up my new fleetwood mallard 29 foot camper, one thing I ask the dealer at time of delievery If I have a flat will one tire support the weight of the camper on one side, they said it should. Well from that time on I didn't think about it again. after all camping was new to me. I now have 2006 rockwood 8314 SS. This thread relates to the one I posted on 9-25-07. Two weeks ago I was returning home from the Hersey RV show, I was about 5 miles from home when a lady pulled up along side of me and said that my right tire was smoking, I pulled over and sure enough it was the bearings not the tire. At this point there was not a thing I could do, but try to get it home. And I did but very slowly. I backed my camper in the driveway and the bearings were falling out of the drum. I used an E-Z JACK to lift the camper, I check out the wheel, the only thing that was holding the wheel on was the washer and the bearing nut. The spindle was damaged, I now have to replace the axle. I ordered the parts from the dealer. I checked the air pressure in the other 3 tires @ 50 psi ,I noticed that the tire that stands alone is on it's side wall with max air pressure. I called forest river about towing my camper for repairs they said, if it is a short trip go slow I said how about 15 miles they said NO. My camper is setting in my drive way with 3 tires on it waiting for a new axle I ordered two weeks ago. Yesterday I recieved A call that my new axle was in. I went to pick it up, When got there I noticed that it had been DROPPED and is damaged, I don't know what is going to happen now. The point I am making is that I suggest to check your weight limits empty and full, to see if one tire will support the weight of your camper. If you have a bearing lose and you are in the middle of nowere you might be in deep trouble. I was lucky. Forest river said that I could very well blow out that single tire and possible damage the other bearing and also frame damage.
