Tire Chains for RV
Snow chains (which are often actually metal cables, rather than actual chain links) wrap around a vehicle's tires to give them more grip on snowy roads. They are an important safety precaution for RV drivers who wish to take their RV up into the mountains or along back roads in winter. Without them, a large and heavy RV is at risk of losing control, especially on corners. How to Use RV Cable Snow Chains eHow.com
So how to know when we are required to place them on our RV rigs?
There was no local or national listing for snow chain installers and so my suggestion would be to call any tire supply store or local mechanics... I do know after talking to Bryan who is the "The Pit Campground - BLM" who use to install them for Mammoth Lakes during their winter season. It can take about 5-15 per tire to do and lets remember how the temps and snow works against them. So while your warm inside - they are busting their butts for you...
If your new to the area and haven't a clue as to "IF" you have to place snow tires on..
- listen to local radio
-call tire service or mechanic service
-weather service web site
-local police station
Its very important that you follow the laws in regards to snow chains. Your accident can kill others. Be a smart driver and never follow close to any vehicle and give yourself plenty of space to ensure a proper brake. SAFE DRIVING FOLKS...
