I came across these clips from Michelin and I found the one on handling blow outs RV - The Critical Factor particularly informative.

Thanks Max! was well worth a few minutes to watch this video. Hopefully I'll never need to use these lessons.

I'd recommend watching the other video - "Things RV Owners Should Know" - as well. It's full of good basic tire maintenance tips, regardless of brand.

Have a Great Day and Safe Driving.

Thanks Max,

I watched the videos and pretty much is common sense, I learned a few things, though. We always can use refreshers to keep us uptodate.
I didn't know if you had a slightly shorter tire (less wear or newer) it goes on the inside of a dual wheel set up. Learn something new everyday! Tom

Tom, I believe it is actually just the opposite of what you are saying above as you always put your weakest link or worst tire on the inside of a dually application. Im not sure why but that is what I was taught as a commercial truck driver and I do believe in the video on this they say to put tire with the most wear on the inside also. If anyone knows more on this I would be curious to hear. Take Care

Max,

You are absolutely correct! I had it backwards....the new or taller tire goes on the outside. Thanks for getting me right on that one! Tom
