I would like to get some knowledge as to the best way to handle a blowout while driving.I have heard two methods. 1. step on accelerator and gain control and work toward the shoulder of the road. 2. Step on brakes to slow unit and work toward the shoulder of the road.

Don't brake until you are firmly in control and then only lightly, if at all! If the blowout was in a front tire, that will almost surely require you to apply some acceleration first, then gradually ease off and slow down. If a rear tire, you may be able to just coast a bit and let your speed bleed off.

Thanks for the information. I need this for my club members. They laughed at me when I told them that stepping on the accelerator was the proper thing to do. I need this video.

I thought the information on RV blowouts so valuable I looked it up for cars. It's the same technique. Art

Hi,
I just saw the video at IRV2 website you posted about blowouts. I have just made a new webpage for our RV club and would love to be able to put that link to the video on my webpage. I have tried every way I know of the get it there and working but no luck. Can you tell me how I might be able to put the link to the video on my webpage. I use Microsoft FrontPage 2003 as my web page maker and I have my site online. Thanks for taking time to read this. I sent an email but unsure if I got the proper email address for you.

Darlene,
If you put this code, The Critical Factor
