Monday Morning: the trip to return home.
The trip started out normal, cruise across Neb, into Colorado, stop in Sterling to empty holding tanks.
Left Sterling traveling southwest on I-76, about 25 miles down the road, all of the sudden a micro-burst hits the rig and almost went sideways. whew that was close...
I stopped at the next exit and walked around the trailer to check things out. Everything seems to be good.
I exit the hwy 52 exit and start west on a the 2 lane road, slow down for a turning truck and hear a loud pop noise, I assumed it was the truck backfiring.
Dee noticed the tire while I was at the store.
Oh, well just replace the tire, I figured, easy enough..
The wheel well is made of light plastic and split in two sending rubber parts of the tire into the cabin,
breaking the shelf, the front panel of the seat, tire rubber everywhere.
Another project is needed,
I think a little Armour plating around the wheel well is going to be done ...
I travel with the trailer quite a bit during the course of a year.
This is the 3rd set of tires since purchasing the trailer. The current set of tires were purchased July of last year.
