Blowout = dust

This has me stumped!!! Had a blowout on the inside rear...passenger side.
Wife comes up and tells me there is dust all over the shower....right above rear wheels....drivers side. Plus, now we Have a small drip...drip...under the coach when we take a shower. Shower is the only place there was dust.
All windows closed. Maybe the concussion from the blow out slightly parted the drain and drove dust up the pipe. Heck if I know!!!

Many times when one has a blowout, there is damage to the coach. You have a 50-100 psi bomb going off under the coach. My guess is there's some damage under there. Thus why you saw dust, and now have a possible plumbing problem.

Yup. Unfortunately the tire is not the only repair needed after a blow out. I had one and was lucky to have no damage.

When you have a radial blow, the belt slings around is a giant shredder. It slapped the underside and did some damage to the floor to the shower.

I had one once and the tire carcass spun around slapped the black to pieces (empty) and next time around hit the floor so hard it shot the toilet right off the floor, then proceeded to tie exhaust pipe in a knot.....all in a matter of 15 seconds !!

Dust

Thanks for the replys. Fortunately the blow out did not shred. Just a hole in the side wall. Drove 50 miles to my camp then replaced all 4 rear tires...it was time. During the tire change nothing under the coach was out of order. Got the 4 tires and have 1500 mies on the coach since then....trouble free. Again....everything was check out prior to this trip....nothing out of place.

possibly the percussion and or the fast escaping air of the blow out caused damage and shook dust/dirt loose from under vehicle
