Have you ever heard that ear splitting, screeching and grinding noise when you’re backing up, or maybe you’ve heard it every single time you’ve pulled into a fairly steep driveway, or even bottoming out going over road humps. That screech sounds expensive doesn’t it? Your poor undercarriage is getting beat up, the road or driveway is getting beat up too…there has to be a solution… right?
Well, you never need to worry about grinding grooves in the pavement or dinging up your drag bars, hitch, or rear end of your RV again. Simply install some of our Skid Wheels to the rear to protect your undercarriage from damage. We offer different sizes and diameter wheels to cover the full range of ground clearance and weight limits. These wheels are sturdy and can be easily bolted or welded in place, and they’ll begin protecting your rear stabilizing jacks, tow hitch, drag bars, and any other items that can strike the pavement on bumpy roads or steep inclines. These also work great on 5th wheels. Maintenance is simple as well, each wheel is supplied with grease fittings to help keep the rubber spinning. All mounting hardware is also included.
Remember these wheels are an aid in preventing damage, but they will not solve angle problems. Treating the RV gently is still the key because any metal will bend if it’s hit hard enough. With these wheels installed, you should still drive with the same caution you used prior to installation and that metal in the back will last longer and require less maintenance. So drive smart, drive safe, take precautions and enjoy your RV for years to come without having to add unnecessary, time consuming, costly repairs.
That’s all for today y’all, hope you’re enjoying the fall weather and hitting the road RV style! Please visit us at www.pplmotorhomes.com for all your parts and accessories!
