Attention RV Owners, Introducing

RV-DE-FENDER™

Tire Blowout Protection System

You’re cruising down the highway with your RV in tow, when you suddenly have a blowout. Do you have the RV-DE-FENDER™ Tire Blowout Protection System?

If the answer is yes, you continue on after a quick tire change.

If the answer is no, well, get ready for a living nightmare…

The Blowout Nightmare

The Aftermath

You first assess the damage, it’s bad. There is a big piece of the wheel well missing, along with torn skirting. You see fluid leaking, which leads you to discover a huge hole in the trailer floor. The blowout has torn through a water line, a drain pipe and also damaged some electrical components.

Your wife and one of your kids gets out to survey the damage, but in your frustration you lash out at them. “GET BACK IN THE TRUCK!” you scream, interspersed with expletives. Their hopes of spending time with dad, the family, together, is dashed and now becomes a painful memory.

You know what happens next, the vacation is over, and the headache begins. The trailer goes to the shop, you haggle with your insurance provider, and they raise your premium. The trailer is out of commission during peak of RVing season, and you think back to reading this page and how all of this could have been completely avoided.

The Solution

RV-DE-FENDER™

RV-DE-FENDER™ Tire Blowout Protection System –  is designed to help prevent damage from blowouts in three distinct ways.
First, it initially contains the force of an explosive blowout.
Second, it protects your trailer from the residual effects, like flying chunks of debris or loose tread. It reduces this seemingly disastrous event to that of a simple tire change.
Lastly, it continues to protect your trailer from the next blowout and the blowout after that, should you be that unfortunate.
Such is RV life.

I have G Rated Tires, do I still need RV-DE- FENDER™?

G rated tires still blowout.

Recently a family friend had a complete blow out of his 14 Ply G rated tire that was less then 1 year old (see image). The impact tore through the floor and damaged plumbing lines. The initial estimates came in around $5,000.00, but it could have been avoided completely with RV-DE-FENDER™.

I have TMPS sensors, do I still need RV-DE-FENDER™?

Tires have the ability to delaminate and still hold pressure. It is possible for a tire to come apart, damage your trailer without notifying your TPMS.

This can actually be worse than a blowout, because you may not know there is a problem until miles down the road.

Does this restrict airflow causing a build up of heat around the tire?

In our testing, we have seen no difference in temperature using the RV-DE-FENDER™ vs not having it.

Are there any disclaimers we should know about before purchasing?
