We were not far from Huonville when somethings seemed wrong with the caravan, a flat tire on the caravan! Yes! It certainly made a noise a man stopped in front of us to make sure we knew then he continued on.
I phoned RACT = Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania of which I'm a member, a man came and changed the tyre as we were near a very busy highway, the side of the road was gravel, my husband isn't able to bend down on the ground to change the tyre and if you pay for this service, use it when necessary.
We only had to wait a short time as in less than one hour and we were on our way to the tyre shop in Huonville and bought 4 new tyres and book in to have them all changed on the caravan the next day even though the tyres were all ok but showing sign of 'sun age' it was best said the tyre people, the tyres had been on the caravan for awhile. We were happy with that even though the tyre people would be thinking of money.
The offending tyre, I managed to take photo between the cars flying down the highway.
Thank goodness for RACT.ReplyDelete
SO glad things worked out for you and no one was hurt!ReplyDelete
Thank you Donna. It was fortunate we were in an area that phone reception, so many places in Tasmania that do not, though things are improving.Delete
Everything ended well luckily. Riding the road with a flat tire is a risk.ReplyDelete
It sure is a risk, as soon as my husband felt the problem he stopped.Delete
Hubo suerte y no llevó mucho tiempo reparar el neumático. Has hecho bien, al llegar al destino cambiar todos los demás, pude que tuvieras algún problema al regreso.ReplyDelete
Yes, best get them all done then hopefully no worries.Delete
Some months ago we called the NRMA in similar circumstances. And were very, very grateful to see them arrive.ReplyDelete
It's a real blessing to be in RACT affiliated with NRMA, it's a load off ones mind when you know there is someone to call who can help.Delete
Per fortuna è tutto finì per il meglioReplyDelete
That is for sure Stefania.Delete
Thank Goodness..I am glad that everything turned out fine at the end.ReplyDelete
Thanks, and so were we :)Delete
Glad that you had someone come and change your tyre. That is a great service to have. I never heard of sun age but that was a smart move to replace them all.ReplyDelete
We were grateful to have someone come. Well here in Tasmania, Australia the sun is so strong it will burn your skin within 10 minutes so it's understandable what it will do to tyres.Delete
What a bummer. Lucky you got out of the scenario safely. I bombed my car in Lake Tyrrell many times. Stuck in mud trapped in areas with no mobile phone reception. This was why I stopped heading there.ReplyDelete
Can understand not going there anymore with no mobile reception - we have been caught twice with no reception, one in WA up the top and near Mundubbera in Queensland but we got by.Delete
What a mess but I'm rather impressed by the stylish caravan wheels.ReplyDelete
Was mess indeed Andrew, yes, those wheels are good. B doesn't care for black wheels at all, likes his chrome.Delete
Gracias que todo salió bien. Besos.ReplyDelete
It was good that all went well in the end Teresa.Delete
Thank goodness for RACT.ReplyDelete
We also have cover like that, you never know when you may need assistance :)
All the best Jan
Yes, thank goodness. It's a wise decision to have it, in my younger days I used to change tyres on my MGB on my way to work with my white uniform on..lolDelete
Fortunately, no accidents happened.ReplyDelete
Glad you got help quickly.
We were thankful nothing dramatic happened Irma.Delete
Could have been worse.Delete
It's a very unpleasant situation. At the end of last year, our car's tire was also damaged and we had to call assistance.ReplyDelete
Lucky we do have assistance when these things happen Maria.Delete
Lucky it didn't cause an accident. It pays to belong to the RAC's.ReplyDelete
It sure does pay to belong, it's not a large sum to be a member cost heaps more if we were not one.Delete
Love your header.ReplyDelete
Thanks Diane. It's beauty if I do say so myself...was thrilled to bits with the shot.Delete
Nunca nos ha pasado algo así, cuando teníamos la caravana. Lo mejor cambiar toddos por precaución.ReplyDelete
