How old are your RV Tires?

Do you know the importance of checking the date codes on your RV Tires?

RV Quality Inspections has inspected tires on RV’s that look to be in excellent condition, the tread wear is minimal, but the tires are 8 or more years old and many times unsafe for further use.

RV Quality Inspections has inspected fairly new RV’s and found the date codes on the RV are 2 -3 years older than year of the RV. Therefore, we recommend when you are in the market for an RV, check the date codes on all the tires. You may be purchasing a 3-year-old RV but the tires could possibly be 4-5 years old.

Here is how you can quickly check the date codes on your RV.

The RV tire Date Code always starts with the letters DOT and ends with a 3- or 4-digit number. The first two numbers indicate the week of the year of manufacture. 52 weeks in a year so that is the max. The last one or two digits tells you the year. The tire in the picture below was manufactured the 21st week of 2018.

RV D@ily Report

To inspect or not to inspect, what RVers told us

Most people wouldn’t purchase a home without hiring a trained professional to thoroughly inspect it. An inspection can show the unseen; the problems that lurk within the walls, under the shingles or in the foundation.

The same is true for your RV. An inspection by a qualified RV inspector can uncover what is hidden from the eye. Yet, many people do not get an RV inspected before they purchase it, despite the fact that, in some cases, these units cost nearly as much as a sticks-and-bricks home.

Certified RV inspectors can help prospective buyers make informed purchase decisions as they examine the overall condition of the vehicle and report their findings, even if the only thing uncovered is a minor cosmetic issue.

RV Daily Report recently launched a survey to hear more about RVers experiences with RV inspections. The following is what we learned:
