After my marathon issues early on, I ditched the 16 inch wheels/tires and went straight to 17.5 in load range h tires. Same diameter as factory tires, but so much better. Just my personal preference.

I have done 2 cross country trips from California to Maine and California to Florida and places in between. 26,000 miles so far and only carried one spare. I just keep a eye on my tires. I do however carry a set of wheel bearings and a rear seal just in case. LOL

Our HC came with this from the factory. That is a great idea to carry the portable poop tank down there!! I wonder if there is room for both a tank and the spare.......hmmmmmm

If Iím not mistaken you already have G rated tires. The chance of a blowout are remote. It could happen and a meteorite could fall on you but it isnít likely. I thing you are concerned about something that you donít need to worry about and it you do need a spare I wouldnít be so sure the other tire would be damaged.
It is good to see your camper is fixed finally.

Thanks Lynwood, but I've already had a blowout with my G rated GY G614s. Five weeks ago with a TPMS system in place. The tire was at 87* and 114 psi when the sidewall came out. Still awaiting Goodyear to prorate the tire. BTW, the tires were less than two years old.

The other tire might not be damaged if the tire has a slow leak and gradually deflates leaving the other tire to carry more weight. The reason why most people say the other tire is damaged is if you have a blow-out you put all the weight on the other tire thus putting a big strain on the surviving tire.

I've been thinking about some way to carry the blue tank under the trailer. I looked at a home made frame on another camper. Can you send a few pictures showing how you mounted the blue tank to the BAL?

Thanks in advance
