Forest River FR3

I just bought a 2015 fr3 which sits on a Ford f53. This is my first rv. Can anyone tell me, if I get a flat in front, can I pull of the entire wheel from back and put it temporary in the front. Basically r the rims interchangeable between front and rear?

Buy a Roadside Emergency Service plan from Coachnet or GoodSam. Money well spent. Let them deal with it.

Thank u Steve. And Jim you might want to check your policy the one I bought states I will get roadside assistance but only if I provide my own spare. Which is why I am shopping for one.

Before you attempt the changing a tire on the RV, try lifting one first as it is a major job that I would not do. In addition, while you might get by using one of your dual tires as a spare on the front, you may also then damage the one run single on the rear since it will be severely overloaded for the trip.

My suggestion is that you will be wasting your money and storage space if you buy a spare tire for it. As long as you keep the tires replaced at about 7 or so years of age, you are very unlikely to ever put the spare on the ground. The F53 we owned for 14 years came with a spare tire that I had replaced with new one time, but never in the entire time did it ever see the ground but simply died of old age. If you carry emergency road service and keep a few bucks in reserve just in case you ever need a new tire on the road, that is a far better plan. You can have the road service plug the existing tire if it should ever go down, but as long as you keep fresh tires on the rig you probably will never use the spare.
