    As some may know we picked our 2010 Autoroller 707 up last week, Well on the way back when we hit 60-70 the amount of wheel wobble and steering wheel shakes was not nice and something was wrong, So i took it easy back and contacted the dealer on the monday.

    I asked the question if the Tyre Safe stuff they put in would effect it and was told no way... So i got it booked into my local Fiat dealer for a look at..

    Also the steering wheel was off centre... ODD!

    Anyway i dropped it off today and collected same day with problem solved..

    Guess what...

    "TO MUCH TYRE GUNK" i went mental aparently it was a right mess. anyway they sorted it and sorted the steering wheel and all is good drives like a dream now. And the Fiat dealer billed the motorhome dealer so all good there.

    so for anyone having tyre save make sure you dont get too much in there lol..

    Yes there are paying they payed as i was there over phone :BigGrin: and the steering wheel being off centre was explained at the fiat dealer they said just because its off centre does not mean anything is wrong as it can be adjusted without adjusting any wheel settings, and without removing the steering wheel. They checked it over for me and they said all is fine,

    I know it is a bit of a hobby horse of mine and know the stuff has a lot of fans, but that tyre goo was developed primarily for farm vehicles.. It can be darned dangerous in anything else and in one instance has been recorded in a possible cause of an accident and subsequent death of a motorcyclist ( allegedly )


    okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    Found my tin hat and have dug the trench, so ready for the incoming brickbats now :Eeek:

    Tyre gunk , is tyre puncture sealent . You put it in in your tyre and when you have a puncture it is supposed to seal it automatically . It appears some MH manufactures are putting it in tyres , instead of fitting a spare wheel,
