Default Thats the heart checked

was in the "garage" and had been inflating the pneumatic jockey wheel for the caravan when bang. Damn thing exploded.

Tyre and tube now useless.
checked the spare pneumatic jockey wheel and not confident that wont go bang as well if pumped up.

now another thing to add to me list of things to do. in touch now with local caravan shop for a replacement

There's a lot to be said for a solid jockey tyre Ian

yeah, not very good on gravel
Our previous house had a gravel drive and it was a nightmare with the solid jockey. I have fitted my spare pneumatic wheel and will get a new tyre to replace the one I ruined but may get a solid wheel for emergencies.

I have had endless trouble with pneumatic ones, I now compromise with a solid one.
