Auto and trailer tools when traveling

Marty Johnson: Hello, Marty Johnson, JMW Insurance Solutions checking in with you from Lava Hot Springs, Idaho coming back from Yellowstone. Hey, I got the travel trailer hooked up to the truck. And like anything can happen. We had a blowout tire on the trailer. So I pulled to the side of the road, and you know waiting for AAA, if you have AAA. Waiting for a tow service, if you have a tow service. Or replace the tire.
If you’re going to replace the tire like we did, you got to make sure that you have the special tools to do that, and that is the tire jack, obviously the lug wrench, and highly recommend cones or some type of safety device so people on the road know that you’re, from a distance, that you’re pulled over and you’re changing a tire.
In Idaho, they have to pull over a lane and give you space. That’s the law, if they can do that. But not all of the time can they do that. So it gets kind of scary changing the tire on the side of the road. So make sure you have the right tools, you check that before you go on your trip, and you have a great and safe trip. Enjoy! Marty Johnson, JMW Insurance Solutions.
