Quote:Dean, I crawled under my RV yesterday afternoon and was appalled at the terrible state of my tires! Yikes!!! Got on the phone this morning with my tire guy. Ordered a fresh pair. They will be installed tomorrow along with repacking the wheel bearings. I don't want any roadside drama on the way to Fort Davis!John
