Check Caravan Tyres

We are now starting the new caravan tyre season and we have already seen a large influx of camper vans and caravans coming in for new tyres. This is a very pleasing trend, and I think that it shows more responsibility towards the importance of tyres on this type of vehicle.

The VW in the picture is a classic, but some of the campervans on the road are as big as buses and should Check Caravan Tyres at regular intervals for signs of wear and cracking on the sidewalls, and if in any doubt the tyres should be changed. however, the biggest danger for caravan owners is to fail to see the cracks that develop in the bead area of their tyres. The tread looks great but if the tyres are older than six years, then you are more than likely to have cracks in the bead area. The problem with these cracks is that

This is the latest caravan tyre failure to be brought to us, and we think that the damage was caused by the tyre being underinflated for the weight it was carrying Check Caravan Tyres

eventually they will join up and develop into a large split, resulting in the tyre coming apart, we have seen this so many times always Check Caravan Tyres. Sometimes the cracks can appear in the shoulder are, but this is with running your tyres under pressure. You must check your tyre pressures when they are hot and not cold, and inflate them to the correct readings when any weight is carried, say when you are going off on  holiday, but when you unload the caravan or trailer, set them to the unloaded pressure.

Caravan Tyre Pressures-Why making sure caravan tyres are inflated is very important

Why making sure caravan tyres are inflated is important –

It advises vehicle owners to check the Caravan Tyre Pressures with an accurate pressure gauge before every journey and if possible with cold tyres.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

This rig is a good example for caravan owners to check their Caravan Tyre Pressures at regular times.

You should increase and decrease your caravan tyre pressures before and after a trip. It is very important to do this before say your holidays when the caravan may be fully loaded, and then lower the caravan tyre pressures when you return and unload the weight.

I have seen many caravan rigs travelling down the motorway swaying from side to side, because the wheels are under inflated, and this often causes accidents, so please check and correct your caravan tyre pressures and fit a TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system) if possible and be safer on the roads. A brilliant web site to visit for advice is...www.tyresafe.org

Continental tyres are releasing a Tyre Pressure Check system which will help to sustain the length of  a tyre’s life-cycle. At the moment it is being tested at the port logistics and other goods handling locations, but is expected to be used in applications such as caravans where slow and continuous loss of pressures are one of the most common causes of tyre punctures.

“Regular maintenance checks on the caravan tyre pressures are time-consuming and cost-intensive, and therefore often neglected – with

Scenes like this are all too familiar and many are caused by tyres problems

serious consequences,” said Dr Michael Maertens, managing director.

The new TPMS system can be fitted on almost all types of  vehicles that are fitted with pneumatic tyres from all of the manufacturers. In contrast to comparable systems, Conti-Pressure-Check system is located inside the tyre, where the  pressure and  temperature are monitored all the time by a sensor.

All the data that is received via the sensor is sent by blue -tooth to a mounted central receiver, this receiver will processes the information and then sends it  directly to the display in the driver’s cab, this would be perfect for a towing vehicle, such as a caravan or a trailer. to the The difference that may fluctuate between the actual caravan tyre pressures will show the driver immediately when to inflate the tyres correct pressure. This type of  monitoring means the risks of blowout accidents are reduced  and the site of a crashed caravan torn to pieces, will be less frequent.

A Continental CST spokesman says that making sure of the  right caravan tyre pressures not only extends the tyre’s life and makes it safer, it also ensures that the vehicle has  lower energy consumption ,but this will mean a better thing for the environment, since CO2 emissions will be cut.
