I'm beginning to wonder each time we take a trip, "what's going to happen on this one!"
Out of our first 5 trips, 3 have had near disasters, and this one was no different. We left Toledo Monday morning, got just over the border of Michigan, and I said to Craig, "Let's get an Egg Mc Muffin". So we pulled off the highway and there was a McDonald's in front of a truck stop. There was not enough room in the parking lot for us, so I pulled into the truck stop and drove all the way around it and parked near the exit drive. Went in, got our food, and walking back to the mo-ho, noticed the rear tire on the drivers side looked funny. As I got closer, I realized the 2 nuts that hold the cover on the wheel were gone, and the cover was barely hanging on because we had value stem extenders put on and they attach to the cover. If not for them, the wheel cover would be gone.
Can you imagine this big sucker coming off on the highway? It could have caused some serious damage had it hit someone.
So I had to order 2 new nuts from our dealer, and they should arrive today or tomorrow and I can put it back on. I checked the rest, and they all seem snug. I don't know how these 2 came off. The last time the cover was off was 4 years ago when we had the valve extenders added.
I wonder what's going to happen the next trip!
