Before heading out on your camping adventures, remember RV tires need to be checked! Check the age of your RV & Trailer tires and your spare tire. Inspect tires thoroughly, including the spare, for age-related & other issues.
On the tread: uneven wear (possible indications of suspension issues) cuts, bulges, or cracking tread depth (minimum) of 4/32
On the sidewall: cracking, cracking can be caused by age or exposure to sun discoloration curb damage
Inflate tires to the recommended PSI. With Summer weather, comes extreme temperatures and with heavy loads at long distances, it’s critical to ensure your RV tires are properly inflated at the beginning and throughout your trip!
You should find your tire’s recommended PSI on a sticker in the door jam or glove box, and your vehicle owner’s manual. It is important NOT to inflate your tires to the max air pressure that is located on the side wall of the tire-always follow the vehicle manufacture's recommend PSI.
Under inflation and over inflation can cause for irregular wear, bumpy riding, decreased fuel millage, traction control and breaking ability.
