A modern day New Mexico RV'er.
Picture taken in 1996 across the street from the KOA Campground. The Rio Grande River, Caballo Lake and the Caballo Mountains are all in the background.
Regardless of what we drive (Trucks,
School Buses, Commercial Buses or RV's) we all ride on air within our
Our hwys, tires and bodies, whether flesh, rubber, concrete or metal, are
for some strange reason expected to continue working without breakdown,
regardless of the wrinkling, cracked and thin skin that arrives with time
and the miles of wear and tear.
Occasionally and unexpectedly, there's a hair-raising, ear splitting
KA-BOOOM... This nerve shattering noise destroys tranquility, and creates
fragments of disbelief. As fear, panic and reality merge simultaneously
merge the mind goes into fast forward as the eyes dart and the feet prepare
for a foot stomping dance. Finally, relief surfaces when no shrapnel or
damage can be seen and that the vehicle is not out of control. Then the
words gush - thank goodness! Why didn't I check the tires? Oh well - too
The consequences of not checking tire inflation are blatantly & abundantly
obvious. Usually they are only nagging thoughts. But, occasionally they are
new forms of life - hwy alligators. No one is free of the terrorizing
effects of these hideous creatures. By day they are scenic pollutants. But,
by night they become shadowy, lurking predators. Hopefully, one day these
awful beasts will become an endangered species.
We all know what to do, but do we? The sad truth is that in this fast paced
hurry-up and wait world we usually take for granted that these well used
shoes will function perfectly each and every step of the way.
Just how often do we really check or care for the integrity of these
burdened & weary sneakers? And, when we perform an inspection just how
thorough is it? Do we simply take a fast look; satisfied that nothing can
escape our X-ray vision? Or, are we bouncing off the wall with
inexhaustible kinetic energy and give them a paralyzing kick? Despite a
bruised boot or toe, how sure are we of this course of action?
Of course, some of us are wise beyond belief, and use the super duper
divining rods, often found in most Truck Stop stores. Heck, it's common
knowledge that these endowed tools of the trade are known to carry magical
power to inform even the ignorant where danger resides. Surely to goodness
these magic wood or metal rods wouldn't fool us - would they?
On the other hand there's the scientifically astute student of science.
This person has all the time in the world to perform the tried and true,
time-consuming use of an air gauge. There's never any question as to its
accuracy. Or, is there? Never-mind that in freezing weather it might cause
a slow leaker by allowing ice or dirt to infiltrate the valve stem. Or,
that consistent use might cause hidden valve stem wear. Furthermore, who do
you know who's willing to use the gauge and spend all that TIME at each
stop, in blistering hot or freezing, rainy weather, in a bent-over,
compromising position, at night where all sorts of lurking shadows prowl?
Is there a solution to this fateful dilemma and endless cycle of boom and
burst? It would be nice if this was a perfect world, where time and money
were never an issue... Unfortunately, the law of supply and demand has
created an environment where TIME is supreme and all other items, like
safety, are forced to rest.
Therefore - Accu-Thump® tire thumpers can be part of the solution that helps
maintain stability on a troubled road.
