6 Reasons to check your Caravan Tyres

Of course, many caravanners make the journey to see their loved ones at Christmas time. Importantly, caravan owners should check their tyres regularly to ensure that they are in good condition and properly inflated. It is important to check the tyre pressure regularly, as underinflated tyres can cause problems such as poor handling, increased tyre wear, and a reduction in fuel efficiency.

It is also a good idea to visually inspect the tyres for any signs of damage, such as cuts, bulges, or uneven wear. If any of these problems are found, the tyre should be replaced as soon as possible to ensure the safety of the caravan.

Overall, regular tyre maintenance is an important part of ensuring the safety and reliability of a caravan.

TPMS is an addition to caravan tyre safety

Of course, the introduction of TPMS has resulted in a massive increase in tyre safety in recent years. Tyre pressure monitoring systems have increased the safety labels on all vehicles. Caravans, if equipped, are included.

TPMS, or tyre pressure monitoring systems, were first developed in the early 1990s by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) .In response to a congressional mandate to improve vehicle safety.

The technology was initially introduced in luxury vehicles and eventually became standard on all vehicles sold in the United States and now the United Kingdom, starting in 2008.

As a result, the TPMS system consists of sensors mounted on each wheel and a dashboard warning light that alerts the driver when tyre pressure falls outside of a safe range. The TPMS system also helps to improve fuel efficiency, including extended tyre life, and vehicle safety by alerting the driver when tyre pressure is too low, which can cause the tyre to overheat and potentially fail.

Well worth thinking about as an extra for your caravan’s safety.

6 Reasons to check your Caravan Tyres

  1. Overloading: Caravan tyres are designed to carry a specific weight, and if the caravan is overloaded, it can put too much strain on the tyres, leading to premature wear and tear.
  2. Underinflation: Caravan tyres need to be properly inflated to ensure that they can handle the load they are carrying. If the tyres are underinflated, it can cause them to wear out more quickly and may also affect the handling of the caravan.
  3. Damage: Caravan tires can be damaged by road debris, such as potholes, sharp rocks, or other objects that can puncture or cut the tire.
  4. Age: Like all tyres, caravan tyres have a limited lifespan and will eventually need to be replaced. As they age, they can become more prone to problems, such as dry rot, which can cause the tyre to become brittle and prone to failure.
  5. Incorrect alignment: If the caravan’s wheels are not properly aligned, it can cause the tyres to wear out more quickly and may also affect the handling of the caravan.

6 Incorrect tyre size: Using the wrong size of tyre on a caravan can cause problems, such as poor handling and increased tyre wear. It is important to use the correct size and type of tyre as specified by the manufacturer
