Inside duelly flat
Dewinterized over a two day period plus getting the MH packed up for the summer. The list was endless and after doing one thing after another little problem would pop up. Needed more hydrolic fluid for the jacks...the alarm wouldn't shut off even though the jacks were up. 12 hours before we head down the driveway for the northern coast of Oregon, I decide to check all the tires, even though they all look real good. Started counter clockwise and went all around the coach. Couldn't get a reading on the driverside inside duelly? Crawled underneath and to my amazement the tire is flat and has lost it's seal. Called Good Sam (they were excellent) and Les Schwab came out. After taking both rears off he concluded that the tire was fine, the extension stem got loose and released the air over the winter. He said the extension stems are not reliable and the truckers are getting rid of them. They tend to knock around between the wheels from vibration and eventually they will fail. He took off the extension stems on both rear duellys. There's ample room too get your tire gauge in or air gun in without the extensions. There is a rubber gasket on the outside wheel to stabalize the stem but it can't stop the vibration problem. As always, in this part of the country, Les Scwab is hard to beat.
