60 mph is the best for your trailer tires, and fuel economy. Had a flat in Tennesse doing 63mph. Damage to underside of rig and wheel well trim. Was told at RV shop they have seen undercarrages torn up through the floor because of speed. I believe them.

1.250" this afternoon. Too much wind with it though. Been pretty regular showers lately. Cooling the afternoon off. I'll take all I can get.
Javi I used to really not look forward to going to Baylor to move the daughter in and out of dorms/apartments in June and August. It does get a bit warm.

Deffinately only speeding up to 65 max. Try to maintain at 63mph. Tire blew out in Tennesse with damage to the undercarriage, and wheel fender trim. I had a brand new TPMS for this trip also. Wouldn't go without it. With 6 tires back there, its the only way to know whats happening.
Good news / Bad news...
The good news, there was an RV repair center only 1 mile ahead.
The bad news, the attendant wanted to back my rig into his bay to do the tire work. He was only 23yrs old and a little green, but seemed like he knew his 'stuff'. Well...he backed it up alright, turned way to sharp and put the trailer right through my trucks rear window!. (Yes I do have a slider). A#@@#$, lkjff!!!!!$^&^^/. Didn't loose my cool but wound up owning the place. Lost 4hrs off return trip.
Purpose of this rant...always stay with your rig!

!
I guess my question would be ...... did your brand new TPMS give you any kind of warning of this tire blow out? Or did it just go "boom"?

And, of course ...... Was the tire one of "those" kind?

Tire was a carlisle 18. And the BOOM came first...then the TPMS. The tpms will deffinatley tell you where a problem exist, but if the tire goes...it goes.

I ain't a grammar teacher but I think that's making a noun out of a adjective or something. I understand "THE ANAHEIM FREEWAY" or I-405.
And it's spreading...the TV news folks are doing that in Houston.
Guess I'm gonna have to get after them too! LOL
Slow, rainy afternoon here....
I stand corrected, I hate Interstate 405 and lemme add Interstate 5 to that list of bumpy, uneven, traffic infested highways in the LA area.
