Nice day to putt's on the rv

I denwinterized my unit today. I also got around to doing dry run of something I wanted to check out, jacking up my unit as if I had a flat. While I had the tire in the air I gave the bearings a few shots of grease.

Interesting enough was one of the tires sounds like it has a ping pong ball or a stone inside of it rolling around. Crazy huh...Needless to say nothing with rv's surprises me anymore.

If you've had the tires changed, it could be the broken end of a valve stem or just a rubber ball from the inside of the tire. Have seen both. Broken valve stem could of stuck to rim and when new tire was mounted, it fell out and the tech didn't notice, knocked it out and choose not to retrieve it.

Never had any tire work done. Why would there be a rubber ball inside??
Do you think I need to dismount the tire?

Tiny bits of rubber in a tire from making the tire will eventually roll together and make a ball.
Alot of time after a tire has been repaired and if it isn't cleaned out properly there will be oodles of little rubber balls rolling around

What Turbs said and the ball/s can certainly affect balance depending on their size assuming they are balanced. If not balanced, don't worry about it, you'll be replacing them soon.

Well, I drove 70 miles to pick up the Sabre from warranty work (been 5 weeks when they said 2-3) only to find out they fixed the 6 easy things, but not the main item I wanted fixed! Poor service manager thought I was going to kick his ??? Right there in the lot. I am a patient person, and was quite calm about it. He thought I should take it home to use and reschedule another visit?!? It'll be fixed Monday morning and I'm planning to pick it up that afternoon. Sheeeeesh.

Whoo, yeah. I'd have his tail for that. My dealer is 80 miles, I would be more than hacked if I drove that far.

I put some clothes in, did a systems check and hooked the truck up. Tomorrow, we drive to camp for two days!
