California

Needles,CA

Took this pic just before pulling away yesterday morning. We had about a 4 hour drive ahead of us so a nice easy day. But in Cunningham fashion plans always change 🙂 we had yet another blowout. Luckily we were able to pull off safely and got the spare swapped out. We pulled into the next “big” town and had 2 tires replaced. Three blowouts in 10k miles is just not normal so all I can assume is that the manufacturer used really cheap tires. Hopefully we can at least make it to South Dakota and we’ll get the rig in up there for repairs. I try really hard to stay positive but sometimes it’s a bit harder than others. Like when your short day turns into a 9 hour ordeal. But all I can think is that we just weren’t meant to pull in that early for some reason or another and that the roadside tire prices we paid were some sort of lesson I was supposed to learn. At least we’re safe and everyone is happy. We all got a much needed goodnights sleep and we are off to the Grand Canyon today so what more could you really ask for 🙂

  1. We have some friends that had a similar thing happen with tires on their fifth wheet. They found out later there were many people with the same issue and there was actually a process set up to recover some of the cost of the tires from the manufacturer of the defective ones. Might be something worth checking into.
