Which is correct, tire pressure on sticker on camper or on tire? New tires, only difference is they are now radials

Ford Marshall

The other day I met up with an Australian couple from Queensland in a rented van camper (B class ) stating the poor quality and their until. They were curious about our PleasureWay 2005 Excel TS. Once they stepped inside they right away noticed the quality workmanship and the better layout. Yes it’s a few years old and well travelled and solid as a rock! Now days PleasureWay is known for it’s outstanding quality built. They walk the talk.

Coming from a site that continually belittles RV manufactures, parks, campgrounds, National Parks, and etc, Play nice, well, OK…

When in doubt, throttle out.

Boy, I found the radial tire video one of the most interesting I’ve seen in a while! Thanks Roger.

While there may be some consensus on what to do in the event of a tire blow out,(on any vehicle) I’d seriously challenge, anyone instructing a person finding themselves in this situation to “press the accelerator for a short distance”. Like many cures and fixes in this life, this may be one of a number of ways to bring this vehicle under control. But there are so many different situations one could find themselves in during a blowout, to pick one way of dealing with it, is dangerous in itself.

For many many years I have called out for driver training for anyone driving big rigs. This would help alleviate many of the concerns attached to handling differing situations while driving these these. It has been and remains totally absurd that the rules (or lack of them) allow a person with Zero training to go down to a dealer buy a 45ft rig attach the Cadillac SUV and hit the road, – WITH ZERO TRAINING – or license beyond what it takes to legally drive the g]family Honda.

Lets get real and start down the road demanding licensing and proper training to handle big rigs, and that goes for tightening rules surrounding tourists from other continents coming here and renting these behemoths and hitting the road. Nobody ever asks them a question about their experience driving in our country or if they’ve ever seen a RV before. So dangerous!!

Lets start a discussion about safety that lead to prevention of more more catastrophes on the road.

I’ m Sorry I could not read this week’s issue in its entirety. Every time I opened an article, a window popped up about subscribing. This window was positioned so I could not “x” it off. I had to go around the world to eliminate it. I finally gave up on the whole issue.

Is that flat tire maneuver for just the front tire or all tires? It feels like with a blowout on any of my 5er trailer tires or the rear on my SRW truck, romping on the gas would be a bad idea.

what, me worry?”

I don’t agree with the “RV Quick TIP” regarding paying a dealer to do a PDI. Why should I have to pay if it is a new rig? I understand that manufacturer quality control is often poor at best (we have purchased new 3 times and had issues with each) and the need for an inspection is a must, but the dealer shouldn’t charge for that. We don’t pay when we buy other vehicles, etc. That said, the PDI that a dealer does will cover the spectrum in terms of thoroughness and corrective action. The best advice (IMHO) is to be as educated as you can before even stepping on a lot to purchase. Based on our buying experiences, you have to do your own PDI, which is why a through shakedown of any rig is a must.
