At the top of the iRV2 page you're looking at, there's a link called 'User CP'. That means Control Panel. Click on that.

Than 'Settings and Options' click 'Edit Signature'.

Enter details of your RV in there. If you don't have one yet, put that in there. There are many items a soon to be RV'er might want to know about that are generic and apply to all RVs and we understand that, but even the 'Don't have one yet' can help.

Looks like you lost 2 years right off the bat. I just had a set of Michelins installed through FMCA program and told the installer they had to be fresh. When they came in they were a month old, I checked the dates before they installed.

Looks like the tires were made the 13th week of 2018...though in DOT code, there are no "/".

But here's the deal if they were made in 2018, yes, you can make a big stink about it at the tire dealers and they may do something for you, but it's unlikely.

Find out what you can about the tire, with an eye to how they were stored for nearly 2 years. If they were kept in a covered warehouse, or in a controlled atmosphere building, that's a good thing and you'll probably get a full life out of them. If they were stored in an open shed like affair, not so good.

It's basically information you file away, and keep an eye on things. Maybe check with the tire manufacturer about storage life (yes, they nearly all spec that). And naturally, make sure you check the pressures and keep it high.

This is only my opinion of course. Good luck, they'll probably do fine over the long run. Next time, tell the shop you will reject any tire over 6 months old. And then do it.
