michelin says to ACCELERATE when you have a sudden loss of air or a blowout, then gradually decelerate to a controlled stop without using the brakes, at least until you are going very slow.
easier said than done.

this link was in a previous irv2 post in 2008, but the link would not work so i had a difficult time finding the video.

Hi Dan, Thanks for the link. I was at that site a few years ago, but obviously I have forgotten a few things. I will revisit. Thanks, John H....

Happy & Retired,

Not me at Disney, and I did not do the conversion. The PO had it done in Rantoul, KS. I actually discussed getting away to Disney this spring. Might see you there,,
I also need to upload a pics of the coach.

I agree that replacing tires sooner, is much better than incurring the damage a blown tire can impart on the chassis.

Take Care,

Gary

I watched that one too last year. MAT the gas until you have control, then and only then do a gradual slow down.
