    I have a 2008 Cedar Creek Silverback 33LBHTS. Yesterday I noticed one of the tires had a huge softball-sized blister on the sidewall close to the tread. Has anyone else had this problem? The tire manufactuer is Electra.

    Electra, that is a new name for me. Look closely, I bet you will find "Made in China" on it also.

    I doubt Forest River will do anything for you, but the best suggestion I can give is to replace all four tires. If one is bad, the other three are close behind.

    Thanks for the reply. The tire was actually an Ironman HLT Electra. I called Carlisle Tire Company who made the tire. They replaced the tire at no charge even though I'm 2 years out of the warranty. They sent UPS to get the tire. All I had to do was send them my Bill of Sale for my coach.

    Would have been nice for them to replace all four tires with Michelins but I'm counting my blessings.
