I wrecked my RV on the 16th, and it is on its way to becoming beer cans now! One less 1963 Grumman Kurbmaster on the road.
For the second time, I had wheel studs snap and lost one side of the dually rear end. After the first, which I got away with by the grace of God, I replace all the rear wheel components. New drums, new studs pressed in, new brake pads and cylinders while I was in there.
Never knew what broke them the first time, and I dont know what broke them this time. 1st time, all studs were sheared off. This time, 3 studs were sheared off and the other 5 appeared to have had the lug nuts ripped off, leaving distorted threads.
The machine dropped and hooked a hard left, then rolled over onto the right side. No seat belts in 1963...I was launched into the passenger side violently, where I got to watch the pavement slide by in the passenger window. It slid into the median, where it stopped just as violently, and I was tossed out the passenger windshield!
Amazingly, I was unhurt other than a scrape on my ankle, a sore foot that smacked something hard, and an overall butt-whipping I got riding in the blender. I'll be looking for another motorhome or small travel trailer.
Y'all be careful out there!
