Glad you came out of it okay. I've got a FR Cardinal 5th wheel. Second cross-country trip we blew an original tire. I don't remember the brand. Replaced all 4 with Goodyears. Return portion of the same trip a bearing burned out and we lost a wheel---completely. Not related to the tires, but since we couldn't find the wheel, we replaced the wheel and axle and the other tire on that side which was damaged. A few trips later a leaf spring broke and when the trailer dropped a propane line rubbed a tire and wore through it rather quickly. The exploding tire damaged the tire on the other axle, so we replaced both. A couple of trips later, we replaced all 4 tires again, so this time a tire sidewall blew out on the tow vehicle. We survived all of this, met a bunch of nice people...both pros and others who just stopped to help. I'm only posting this to let you know you're not alone---but the RV experience is still a lot of fun. Maybe a tad extra exciting at times, but still fun.
