Your RV is reliant on its tires just like any other vehicle. That’s why you have to keep track of how those tires are doing at all times. If you slip up, the damage can be significant, and that is not something you want to deal with. Look at going with tires that are going to last and make sure you are caring for them using these tips.
1) Check Air Pressure
Begin with the air pressure because that is a good starting point. It is going to matter a lot because of how much pressure is put on the average RV tire. Take a look at the air pressure and make sure the PSI matches the manufacturer’s recommendations.
2) Assess Surface For Potential Tears/Cracks
Keep an eye out for potential tears in the tire. Look from edge to edge and make sure you are running your hand across the whole surface of each tire
If there is something there, you want to patch it or replace before the tire bursts. This is a real issue with RVs because of the way they are driven, and the load put on them. This is an excellent starting point and should be an instilled habit for you in the long-term.
3) Understand Maximum Load of RV
The next thing you should be doing is assessing the load that is being put on the RV tires. Each RV is going to come with a maximum load that it can handle, so do pay attention to this at all times. Many people make a rule of purging things they’ve collected in the RV on a regular basis.
These tips will help you extend the life of your RV tires and keep you safe on the road.
