first breakdown

OK finally had my first "breakdown"--today on the way to the campground--left-back ,inside tire shredded--pulled over in a parking lot--called Good Sam--quick response-good service--bill was $150--Good Sam paid, I just signed-glad I had a spare-but did leave a good tip. Bad news is, when the tire shredded--it tore loose the tire guard, tire flap, and some small wires, and drain lines for? shower/sink--got to the campground-hooked up water turned it on--and water poured out onto tires from exposed drain lines---Vince--gonna buy all new tires now-dont trust any of them-what do you recommend--and ?price--they are 16"s-6 of them E rated

What is the date code on your existing tires? That will tell you if you have a more "systemic" issue and they all need to be replaced or if you just had a localized issue with the tire that failed (low pressure or defect or...)

may be time to thing of some type of still plate to stop that from happening again

wiring and water lines may be fun to fix if any thing got pulled out of the floor where you cant see the end any more

happy it all worked out and your safe
