Another Oklahoman
Tim here and glad to join this group. We have been RV'ing for about 25 years. We used a tent, pop up trailer.....never use this with two kids in diapers, Fifth wheel, then class C and back to fifth wheel since 2005 with our current trailer. :thumb: Here is an experience I'd like to share and maybe help someone to avoid the same challenge. Last summer in Nebraska we had a blowout on the passenger side rear tire of the 2006 Wildcat 31QBH. The tread unraveled and grabbed all the wires located in that wheel well and wrapped everything:facepalm: around the axle. Was not a pretty picture. I Unravelled everything and spliced the important wires together so we could travel on to Wisconsin.:dance: Once there we traced wires and locations to reattach the monitor panel. I guess my suggestion would be to look and see if your wires are located in the wheel well and cover them with a protective plate or relocate them out of the wheel well. A bad day Rving is better than a good day sitting at home. We love to see this beautiful country and appreciate all of our fellow Rvers. Someday we hope to go full time. Have a great day and thanks for the opportunity to share!
