There's just nothing like the comfort of knowing you're riding on Marathons. Glad you caught it.

It just never stops!

Dick I like that! That really makes you feel warm and fuzzy.

Now that's just getting ridiculous. No wonder we won't even leave the dealer lot with them on anymore!!!

Hmmmm. I need to check my spare again. It is also a Marabomb that has never touched the road.

NOW I know why it's called a 5th wheel

Guess I got a new project. Mine has never been down either.

When was the last time any of you checked and adjusted your air pressure in the spare???

My spare is a Marathon, guess I'll go check it.

Actually I have two Marathon spares one with about 300 miles on it and one with about 1500. Both seem OK. Guess I'll keep my fingers crossed that I never have to use either one.

Heck, my brand-new, unused spare was killed by my own trailer before it even had a chance to fail on it's own.
Here's the link to when I posted about it:
