Smile Hello from LA! '08 Roadtrek C210P

Hi All,

Upgraded to the 210Popular and have little experience aside from owning a '01 Dodge 190V for a year prior. Love the class B! I know enough to be dangerous... Looking forward to learning from others on the forum!

Thanks,

Jim

Jim, welcome to the forum.


YES, I have three suggestions... take a close look at your tires and the date of manufacture.. it's the DOT code... look that up to decipher when your tires were manufactured. If they are more than 6 years old.. look at them closely for cracks. The last thing you want is a "blow out " on a Class B....

A friend of mine with a 210 like yours had a blow out, lost control and damaged his rig..


And, if you get new tires, look into a tire pressure monitoring system.. I have one from Truck System Technologies. Cost was around $300 or so... has wireless sensors telling you the exact tire pressure, etc.


Finally, check your batteries … they typically last about 6 or 7 years if you're lucky.


Good luck.
