For any Canadians, the link will redirect to the Canada version which has some text but NO video. Change to U.S. after you click the link and you will see the video.

They showed travel trailers at the beginning, but not with blow outs. And they also said all vehicles were the same. So it's the same when towing?

Hi, I'm new here

This is the first post I saw and wow, we've come a long way. The first few posts were about the people struggling to watch the videos on a dial-up connection.

Nice video btw, still relevant!

Regarding the videos linked to above (Everybody should watch) Like many FMCA members I've met the "Stars" of that video.

But I learned from it.. And I thought I knew all there was to know about what to do when flat happens. but I learned from those videos so I was WRONG.. If you have not watched them. Good chance you are like me in that respect.

Something I should have remembered about towing from the rear....

The steering wheel lock is NOT strong enough for a rear tow. It has to be SEcURED so the towed does not destroy itslf.

in teh case of an RV I really would suggest NOT towing that way.


Home is where I park it.

Good video, I have around 1 million miles driving a long haul semi-truck. Never had a blow out on the tractor, but a few trailer B-Os. Hoping my luck holds up in my Motor home. A must see video

i never tried to count my miles on the hwy with a rig, but have had many a blow outs, from just fast flat, to 100's of flying parts.
(for a time a guy at one company thought he was god, and bought a bunch of used carcasses, our tire retreaded junked at least half of them, no warranty on the rest, i had five tires blow out that year.)
worked at a place that had us go into a lot of steel fab places, got at least one flat a day.
now this company requires us to jump curbs with fully loaded trailers.
(fast food delivery and pulling 48 foot trailers). out of 100 drivers here, at least three a week. due to damaged tires.

but in 37 years never had a front tire go bad, only virgin tires there.
but maybe these videos should be a sticky. as many out there just do not know how to drive.
