RV Tire Replacement – Save Money & Get The Job Done Right

RV Tire Replacement – Save Money & Get The Job Done Right

Even though our RV has eight tires, we follow a somewhat unusual tire rotation schedule, so we only replaced two of them this year. But even with only two new tires, we spent a LOT less on our new Michelins with the FMCA RV Tire Savings Program. For our XZA2 Energy 295/80R22.5 tires, we saved over $100… PER TIRE!

As we do most winters, we spent this past one snowbirding in the Desert Southwest. Since it was time for new tires while we were there, we followed the recommendation of close friends (fellow RVers of course), who raved about Redlands Truck & RV. We went in with high expectations, which were promptly exceeded.

Save $10 on your annual FMCA membership with Promo Code RVGA2.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2021:

The Escapees RV Club now offers savings on RV tires, too. They’re now a part of the Michelin Advantage Program. So Escapees members can save on Michelin, BFGoodrich, and Uniroyal brand tires for their motorhome, trailer, truck, or car. So if you’re not already a member, join Escapees today and start saving!

Special thanks to drone pilot extraordinaire, Tom Morton of MortonsOnTheMove for the slick highway and BLM aerial footage!

Great Episode. Quick question: in the opening shot showing your RV on the road from the air, was that done from a drone or a helicopter? In either case, my hats off to the pilot, it was very professionally done. If it was a drone, could you please share the make and model of it. Thank you

Thanks so much, Ali! That was shot by our dear friend Tom Morton of Mortons on the Move with his brand new DJI Phantom 5 drone. His flying skills are amazing!

Hi Gentlemen, thanks for this video and all of your videos. Just wanted to say thanks as I recently ordered one of your tshirts and I was surprised but happy about the price. Would like to get a Wynns tshirt too but they are twice as much. Tell Nicki and Jason to either lower their cost or quality so I can show them off too. Thanks, Steve and Dorothy Lamb

Thanks, Steve & Dorothy! And we'll pass the note on to Nikki & Jason... but shipping from the middle of the Pacific Ocean is expensive! ?

Another great video with extremely helpful information. Do you guys belong to both FMCA as well as Coach-Net? I see that FMCA has towing as part of their membership. I'm remembering your previous video where you used Coach-Net to get you unstuck while boon docking.

Hi Scott,

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it! And, yes... we belong to both FMCA and Coach-Net. FMCA does offer a road-side assistance program called Roadside Rescue (it's powered by SafeRide RV Motor Club) for $69/year. But we've been with Coach-Net for many, many years and, after our one-and-only experience with them (which was AWESOME), we're not looking to change. We haven't heard much about FMCA's program, but whenever we read discussions online... everyone seems to really like Coach-Net (again, we haven't read anything specifically about FMCA's plan, we've mostly seen posts about Good Sam and AAA... both of which seem to be resoundingly disliked, especially for big Class A Diesel Pusher owners). Since we don't need TWO roadside assistance programs, we just keep Coach-Net... although we should probably do some more digging into the FMCA program. It IS cheaper! ?

Very comforting to have a service center that takes any worry or concern out of you minds for safely traveling with an RV. I learned a lot from your video. Thank you.

You're right about that, Roger! It can be especially tough for full-timers, since there's usually no "home base" to fall back on,

They are a rare breed, David. In the 16 years we've been full-time all over North America, we can count on the fingers of one hand the number of service locations where we've even had an acceptable experience, let alone one like what we just had at Redlands. They were truly top notch, from start to finish. Which just goes to reinforce the great things we've heard & read about them over the years.
