FYI...if you ever experience a rapid tire failure DO NOT APPLY THE BRAKES UNLESS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Apply slow stead throttle until you have the vehicle traveling straight and controlled then slow decelerate to a stop. Accelerate again if you feel the vehicle pulling and losing control. This is not a east maneuver because your brain says BRAKE. Braking is what causes the vehicle to pull severely to the blow out side then we loose control or over correct..

What chief02 posted is the absolute truth. The skills required to control a vehicle that is losing it are not automatic, they are learned because (until you develop them) they are counter-intuitive. It is something that all drivers of any kind of vehicle should know, but most do not. Speaking from over 40 years of competitive driving, racing and racer training.

I'm glad that Mike and Kathy are not in serious condition because based on the damage it could have been much worse.

There are outstanding instructional videos on YouTube on how to deal with a tire blowout on a MH. I review them every few months, and recommend that we all do that. It is completely counter-intuitive - our brains scream BRAKE!, but slowly accelerating to keep the vehicle straight to counteract the oppositional force of the blowout is what keeps us on the road until we can safely slow to a stop.

I'm very sorry for your relatives, and hope they recover quickly. I also hope this isn't the end of their camping adventures.
