Curbside Only Blowouts
Although I've been reading items on this forum for a good while, this is my first post - hope I get it right, and I apologize in advance if I don't. In the three years since I took delivery of my FR 8265WS 5er, I've had five blowouts. On the right side only! This isn't my first trailer, or even my first fifth-wheel, but it is my first experience with this phenomenon. Finally, a solution occurred to me, and I wrote about it on my travel blog. Not sure if I can post a link to it here, but am happy to provide it privately. Long story short, I camp in two locations every year, in the exact same spot, for two to three weeks at a time. In both locations, I have to level up the right (door) side of the trailer. I have been using those orange plastic interlocking blocks that you are all familiar with. So, on the latest trip I placed a couple of thinner, smooth orange pieces (that I usually use under the front landing gear) on top of the regular blocks so that the tires rested on a smooth surface instead. This could just be anecdotal evidence, but I had no blowouts on the 1200 mile trip home. I report, you decide...
