Another vote of appreciation for the pointer! The major thing I realized was that running at full governed speed gives one no headroom for further acceleration in case of blowout. Better cruize a little slower! Thanks again.

Just downloaded the videos. Thank you so much for the information as I had things backwards...Hope I don't have the need to use this information but certainly feel better that I now know the correct procedure.

These are both outstanding videos to watch. I would assume that the same principals apply when towing a 5vr? I agree that this should be mandatory watching for anyone who owns a motorhome or tows a trailer. Thank you very much for posting this.

Great info! Would have never thought to do it that way, but the video sure makes a good case for it!

There is a lot of saftey info presented, and I would highly recommend you watch the whole thing. The most significant item which most people seem to NOT already know something about is what to do if you have a BLOWOUT. Here is what I remember, there may be other tips that others can add.

1. do not IMMEDIATELY apply your brakes.
2. DO accelerate slightly to help regain directional control
3. after regaining control, coast to a stop, or CAREFULLY apply light brake pressure
4. Move to the shoulder after you have slowed and cleared of surrounding vehicles.

Don't forget to watch the whole thing when you can. Be safe, ED

Most outstanding post to date! Registered just to Thank You.

Weighing each tire and knowing you're ballanced (or not) is terrific peace of mind. Double Thank You.
