As we were coming through Waco this morning, our Tire Minder started
beeping and flashing a red light warning. We quickly got off the
expressway and pulled over to a wide spot on the feeder road (service
road for non-Texans). The left outside dually was flat. Did not appear
damaged, just flat.
Called road service who called back 30 minutes later and said it would
take 2 hours to get someone there on a Sunday.
Picked up my smartphone and found a tire service shop less than half a
mile away. Got there and fund out that the stem had failed.
Fixed it for $10 and we were on the road again.
This is the third stem out of 4 on the rear wheels that has failed. I
believe that the stems used were either defective or crap. I need to
give someone a piece of my mind but I don't know who puts the stems on
the tires. Is it Chevy, who makes the chassis or Coachmen who makes the
RV? Does anyone have any guesses?
Spelling doesn't count. Cooking does.
