One Hot Tire: What Does it Mean?

As temperatures trend hotter across the country, it’s a good time to think about how heat in general affects tire performance. Specifically, how heat and tire pressure are related. The relationship between the two might not be quite as straightforward as you might think. For example, what does it mean when you have one hot tire? We’ll cover the basics — like what happens to your tires when the outside temperature increases — as well as the importance of keeping close tabs on your tires’ pressure, temperature, and performance.

Tire pressure and tire longevity

As most of us know, an underinflated tire exposes more surface area of the tire to the pavement. And the friction this causes can quickly increase the temperature of the tire, compromising its integrity. A slightly underinflated tire will deteriorate far more quickly than a properly inflated tire. But the problem doesn’t stop there.

An overinflated tire also presents longevity issues. When a tire is overinflated, less surface area comes into contact with the pavement, which contributes to uneven wear as the force and weight of your vehicle fall on a smaller surface area.

This is why it’s crucial to maintain tire pressure in the Goldilocks zone — not overinflated, not underinflated. This is an easy enough task when you regularly check the tire pressure, and it’s a great practice to make your tires last longer. But what happens when your tires are exposed to extreme temperature fluctuations as you travel? Both overinflation and underinflation put your tires at risk, and it becomes increasingly difficult to moderate the changes during hot summer months.

10 Top Stargazing Camping Spots in North America

Put a stop to video streaming and turn to a different show: the night sky. From the right vantage point, campers can see endless spectacles of constellations, clusters and planets. Take in views of the Big Dipper from the Texas prairie or marvel at the Milky Way Galaxy from eastern Nevada. Embark on a stargazing camping trip to see the galaxy (and beyond) without leaving the ground at the following places. But first, some stargazing camping basics:

What time should you start stargazing?

If you’ve ever been late getting the RV leveled and set up, dinner cooked, and the camping chairs set up, then stargazing might be for you. Because once the sun sets beneath the horizon, you’ll still need to wait. Stargazing is best done after twilight, when no remainding sunlight can obscure the light of distant stars and planets. The benefit of stargazing while camping is that you’re likely away from city lights, but you still need to stay up late enough that sunlight isn’t a problem, too.

How do you plan a night of stargazing?

First things first when trying to plan the perfect night of stargazing: check the weather. Overcast skies are a sure-fire way to ruin the best laid stargazing plans. Be sure to check your local area on Clear Dark Sky to see your visibility forecast for the week. Also, avoid full moons while stargazing. This light, like sunlight, can prevent you from getting the full stargazing effect.

Another key aspect to planning a night of stargazing is to download your favorite stargazing app which will help you and your friends and family locate and identify constellations and planets.

Why Every RVer Needs Both Tools and Roadside Assistance

Tools to manage repairs on your own and a roadside assistance plan when you require help beyond what you can tackle yourself — no RVer’s rig is complete without both of these critical emergency options.
Good Sam Roadside Assistance helps you get back on the road when the job requires professional help.

 

Over the years, I’ve talked to plenty of folks who wanted to hit the open road, but were afraid of what might go wrong. Traveling in an RV, particularly one that’s old enough to vote, has more than its share of headaches. Parts that have been plugging along since the Clinton administration finally snap. Brittle belts break. Tiny squeaks suddenly turn into big bangs. Further into the RV, sinks drip, toilets leak, fans stop spinning. But no one should let these problems stop them from creating awesome memories with their families.

Everyone who owns an RV should be prepared for the inevitable. Thankfully when good RVs go bad, having roadside assistance and the proper tools in your vehicle will stop most situations from getting worse.

What to Look For In Campgrounds Near Lakes

RVing lakeside — it’s hard to beat. Depending on the location, you get the best of both worlds, enjoying the comforts of your RV while in close proximity to waterfront entertainment like beaches, swimming, and boating. And, during summers as hot as these, escaping to the water for a swim makes the heat more manageable. But not all campgrounds near lakes offer the same experience, and it’s an important consideration before booking just any lakeside campground. 

Let’s explore how to find lakeside campgrounds, what to look for in a great campground by the lake, and what to bring to complete the experience.

What are lakeside campgrounds?

Proximity matters, especially when choosing a lakeside campground. While looking for a campground near a lake, make sure you research how far you actually are from the water. If you imagine a beach within walking distance, verify before booking. 

For those with a boat who plan to launch onto the water, this is less of a concern. You’re driving already. But if you want to hike or walk to the waterfront, some campgrounds listed as “lakeside” may be a mile or more from your campground, and that might be a dealbreaker, depending on your aims.

While it may be a little soon for a rest stop, this park is a great, lesser-known attraction worth a visit. Check the schedule to see if your trip aligns with any music events hosted at this location. And, if not, just head up the interstate and visit the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park and Campground.  

Not far from the culture center are two other incredibly beautiful designated areas: Big Shoals Wildlife Management Area and Suwannee Valley Conservation Area.
