Methinks he means "ditto."

BTW - Ditto. Should be mandatory viewing before taking delivery of your rig.

Great post. Sure am glad I watched. Would not of guessed to give gas first. I would have let it coast. I am more prepared for this type of event

I had a blowout on a rear outside dual passenger side that wiped out the gray water tank. I was a newbie with and old rig and the tires "looked good". As I recall, I just steered straight ahead without braking while the rig slowed down then pulled off the freeway.
I can see where, with a front tire blowout, applying throttle to sustain momentum and steering control and then gradually letting speed bleed off without braking until very slow would help especially with a front wheel blowout. T'would be nice if they gave you these videos with your new rig.

Yes, those videos were very good! Who would have thought of stepping on the gas!?

"BTW, an infrared thermometer is an easy way to check for an underinflated tire at each stop; just point and pull the trigger. "

Where would you purchase an infarared thermometer?

Handbasket: I use my hand to check the tire temperature at the same time I visually check the tire and look at the wheel stud nuts when we make a rest stop area during daytime travel. Don't forget that the sunny side can be warmer due to the sun. When it is sunny and the temp. is a 100 degrees then that black asphalt really transfers a lot of heat into your vehicle tires.

I don't know what the video shows, but if I have a tire problem then I maintain my speed until I have control and then I slow down with my foot off the pedal until my speed is down before I ever touch the brake. I have experienced very few tire problems, but that is what I have always done and I never had a problem. The worst thing that I ever saw was a front wheel come off a motorhome on I-5 near Fife, Washington about 15-20 years ago. The motorhome had front drum brakes so he rolled along okay and maintained control. Fortunately, it was Friday evening and traffic was only going about 45 MPH. I am still thankful that both of my right rear duals came off as I pulled away from a stop sign!!! With our heavy camper it would have been more serious at highway speed and especially on a curve to the left.
