The truth could be eaither. Unfortunately, flats happen. Hope nothing is too messed up and you get up and running quickly.


Not a pressure loss issue The tire minder system responds to major pressure loss very quickly. I literally heard the tire explode.

I am curious how much your rig weighs when loaded for camping. Typically there is minimal cargo capacity and it can be difficult to stay within load specs.

Even so I think it is just disgusting if not verging on criminal to put cheap tires on a rig that is going to stress them near the maximum load capacity.

I don't remember offhand but I recall being well within specs for truck and trailer axles.
even if you are little overweight it should not cause such a catastrophic failure

I believe you meant Goodyear Endurance tires as their Adavantage line is designed for automobiles, not trailers. Maxxis M8008 are also a good choice.
Whatever non-Chinese tire you choose, be sure to have them balanced.

Had a similar problem with Keystone's crappy Trailer King tires. Lost two on a trip with less than three thousand miles. Got lucky and did minimal damage. Trailer King said the tire I sent them was either over or under inflated. BS! Keystone puts the cheapest tires they can find on their products. Decided to replace all four tires with something better. I usually don't diss China produced products because my life is full of them, but Trailer King are China bombs.

Thats the exact opposite of my experiance and of those that have added the monitors in there campers that I know. If yours react instantly good. Mine dont. Even in my new truck they take like 30 mins of driving to get up to corect pressure.

I've driven coast-to-coast twice already this year and the roads in Florida are some of the best I've seen.

My guess would be a road hazard like someone mentioned previously. Not much you can do about that but just drive defensively. It's kind of a "why do bad things happen to good people" thing. Eventually it's your turn.

Good for you for driving safely and keeping it under control.

Best of luck to you.

Wouldn't a road hazard get the truck tires too?

My standard procedure is to replace the factory tires with Goodyear endurance tires before 5k miles. Even this didn't work on one as two blew out at the same time with about4k on them. Trailer was 1k under max weight and I was doing about 35 on a new road. Right front and left rear blew within seconds of each other. Tpms had them about ten degrees above ambient and the system showed no pressure immediately. Alarm went off as it should and the tires did not have a chance to shred. Next trailer got Goodyears on the way home from the dealer.

Pressure Pro.. at least some models. also measure heat (Temp) or so I'm told (I had an earlier model)

With sudden decompression you go from too many PSI to zero PSI in the time it take to type the first letter of BOOM.
