Well, found more damage from blowout. I have a rubber brake line that has been cut from the tire.
Does anyone know where the brake resevoir is located? Will look for a repair shop tomorrow for the line.
Always something!

It's inside the drivers side large compartment Inboard of the water manifold a couple feet behind the sliding door.

If you have not added brake fluid before it's good you will be replacing a line because I am willing to bet you have air in your lines from being low.

Fill to within about 3/4-1" below top with Dot3.

Joe,
Wish I had mentioned the brake lines when we were talking--just had finished having Morryde re-route the lines to the inside of the frame instead of the outside where DRV places them. Won't completely eliminate breaking a line from a blowout, but should substantially reduce the chances.
Hope this is the last of your issues.
Joe

Thanks, Joe, I hope it is too!!! Called GY and spoke to their tire department on prorating the tire and they came through! They will cove 77% of the cost of the tire. A big shout out to Carol at GY and Jim at the GY dealer in Lebanon, TN. Can't say enough about how nice everyone was and how much it was appreciated!
Made it home at 11 this morning with no more problems! First thing was to wash the rig and the truck. The love bugs are alive and well in Florida!

Thankfully, a young man stopped and offered assistance and two state troopers with lights and vests, directed traffic to slow down while I worked.
Some damage to the side of the rig, but not bad. Will be ordering a new tire on Tuesday. Goodyear is proud of these!

Food for thought, look at my two posts here.

Thanks, Duane for the links! Interesting results from your claim. Good to know that GY came through and quickly!
