Just learned the Rising Eagle Road fire in central Washington was started by someone towing a trailer, with a flat, that caused sparks

So far it was burned six homes and caused the evacuation of the Sun Mountain Lodge

Reminds me of a fire in Idaho years ago, caused by an RVer who's toad was dragging, and would not stop for people trying to stop them due to the sparking

When someone tells you to buy the same rig they own, listen, they might be right. When they tell you to buy a different rig then they own, really pay attention, they probably know something you don't.

During the Bastrop fires that spread 20+ miles in several hours, when evacuating, I still saw people throwing lit cigs out their windows.

Only thing one can really do is have a good dashcam at all times, so if someone does that in front of your vehicle, it can be send directly to the local sheriff so the perps can be held accountable.

All really need to put tire sensors on their trailer. Doing it is not that big of a deal. I use a dash cam while traveling as well.

I'm not sure that calling the driver with a flat on his trailer a moron is appropriate. It can happen to anyone and I've seen professional truck drivers that aren't aware of a flat on their rig. Not everyone can afford rearview cameras and most trailers don't come with tire pressure monitors. If you're a moron for not having them, then there are a heck of a lot more morons than people who have them.

Well said Water-Bug. It truly amazing to me how readily someone is able to call someone else a moron, with zero information about the situation at hand.

WOW! Lots of morons out there! Ever see a tire blowout? No amount of sensors in the world are going to stop a blowout!

You do realize that "MORON" is a slur against the Mormon religion don't you!
