Yup yup yup... My wheels fell off!!!
All 6 lugs nuts sheared off while I was driving. One was off a few days ago so I've kept my eye on it. Then two days ago something sounded like a wheel was falling off when I turned sharp left. Pulled over three times and checked everything and found nothing out of order. Yesterday I drove it around the block and in an empty parking lot I did several sets of circles and figure eights.... Nothing. Not one sound like before. So today I left on a drive and all off a sudden I heard the noise again and felt a looseness in the rear and thought I cut a tire. All of a sudden the whole rear started wobbling and then just slowed down as if the brakes were applied. I climb out just as a passer-by points to my wheels which had obviously fallen off.
Napa only had four studs and O'Reillys had the six lug nuts but I got it done. Called a fellow RV'r for some assistance and he took me to all of the parts stores...including a dealership.
Cause? Not really sure. Believe the electric impact died out on this set of wheels when I installed them. Today it didn't want to tighten them so I'm thinking this was what set it in motion but honestly I don't know... I swear I tightened them up before by hand after the impact as a safety check but I may have not. Either way all is ok and me and the dog are safe and I got to my desired destination. -BeardMan

Series of images from the Dumbarton Bridge and all of the salt around the bay. Such unique color in the middle of brown hills and blue water. #capturedbylight #lightl16

Is there such thing as a Wednesday introduction? I have some new followers around here and found a picture of me so figured we could do this a couple of days early 🙌🏼.
My name is Allison. I am a wife, Mom to a beautiful 2.5 year old little girl, and have so many different interests. I run, swim, lift, photograph, and learn. I have two wardrobes - fitness and fancy. This year was my 9th year at my 'day job'. I started photography in high school. Over here you'll find a mix of all things I love: Client Families, babies, nature, travel, and my own family. .
I'm an open book - you can ask me anything. I'm on a constant path of self growth and development. I believe we should always try to be better. I believe that we can help each other by sharing our experiences. I also believe that you need to be happy in whatever season you're in. .
