RV Blowout training video

I am sure this has been on IRV2 before but it can't hurt to see it again.

Ironman, thnk you for posting that. We are just getting back into RVing after 17 years and the used 38' diesel pusher we bought had had a rear blowout with the former owner. I have not met the owner but he left all the paper work since the coach was new in 2001 and the blowout did about $3500.00 in fiberglass dammage. We have only taken two short trips and I have worried about tire pressure and check it every day. It sounds like the temptation to "hit the brakes" could cause a catastrophy! Thanks again. DACOTAH

RV blowout

Though to get the floor it first part. Second time I have seen this, hope it sinks in for me to floor it first.

It is always a good refresher. Thanks.

The other tire on that rear dual had twice the load on it for a period of time. That could have weakened the sidewalls. Just a thought.

I'm glad I watched the video before I had my blow out. I used it and it works.

I'm with you on that one. Hard to get over that instinctive reaction to hit the brakes. Hope it sinks in here too.
