In just a few days of reading blogs I have learned about tires. Tires are serious business. I have read 2 blogs where they had 2 flats in the same day almost at the same time.
When buying tires always check the manufactures dates, just because they have never been used doesn't mean they are good. If a tire has been sitting in storage for years they aren't any good. They become dry and will blow out very quickly. And never buy tires made in China. The tires on one of the 5ers were only a few months old and made in 2010 but made in China.
When will this country quit importing deadly things made in China.
So please be careful when purchasing new tires.
Many more women are heading out on the roads. Most making a new life for themselves after losing a loved one or because of divorce.
Some traveled with a spouse or a partner before so we didn't pay much attention to the outside stuff. We did all the inside things. My first tt was a Chalet and so there wasn't much to do on the outside but make sure I had a good lock on the hitch and the electric cord was back in the little door. Of course I never was able to back the little sucker up. Next came the Class C which I still have. Sewer hose? Drain the black tank, grey tank?, which one first? leave which one closed? Awning? NO I do not have all electric buttons. But I had a great teacher at Wells Fargo RV Park in Tombstone, AZ. I stayed there a week and he told me I would know how to do everything before I left. Well I did. I don't know if they are still there managing the place but I hope so. Now that I have ramble on the point is, don't be afraid to ask for help of an experienced person.
Have fun and be safe.
