Re: Project "Brutus"

When you blew the tire, did you have a spare and was it on a rim when coach net changed it? or did they have to mount it on the rim for you?
tks

The spare was on the rim, but he actually took it off and put it on the existing rim. He said it was easier and he liked to avoid jacking it up on the side of the road if possible.

I did mine online, when they asked for model i just clicked other and typed in my model and motor. No mention of it being a school bus originally. Don't forget, you're not driving a school bus, it's an RV!

Re: Project "Brutus"

It got that way after the tree removal project was over

It's funny, both times you came through have been some of the windiest I've seen this year.
You hit it just right both times!

Re: Project "Brutus"

How in the world would changing the tire from rim to rim on side of the road; be easier than changing an outside dual on the pass side?

Drive up on block (inside tire) zip...zip...replace mounted tire and tighten lugs....drive off blocking

please edujuuummecate me

I also have coach net...haven't needed yet...knock on wood...knock,knock

Re: Project "Brutus"

Lugs are holding both wheels on. Removing the lugs would free inside wheel as well and allow it to cock sideways, I would imagine. At least that is what I am picturing. It only took him about 30 minutes.

Finally home!! Wish I wasn't though :/ Tons of pics to upload

Re: Project "Brutus"

actually there is an inside and out side lug nut (on mine at least) are you saying he mounted the tire w/o taking it off even? do you have video?
