I have a 2000 Adventurer 38' -- I have had three tires blow out on the right rear inside.
I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with tires in a specific location going bad.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing this problem?

I would guess that your tires are about seven years old at least. I've been there.

Yes some of the tires are orginals and I have started replacing them. However, the tires that are blowing out are new tires and always on the right rear inside tire.

Have you had your coach weighed? Perhaps there is excessive weight in that area and needs to be redistributed. Also, how often do you check the pressure on the insides? I use a Presure Pro by Doran Mfg. Great system to let you know what pressures your tires are running at all the time. Maybe you are overfilling the tires and when they warm up, they are exceeding what the tire can handle. Make sure you are using a rated tire that can handle the axles weight rating.

I agree you are likely overweight on that corner. You need to check not only the weight, but also the weight rating for your tires. Could you perhaps put tires on that have a heavier weight rating? (...that won't increase your coach GVWR, but will help if the tire ratings are barely adequate).

Note that the right rear is the dual that sometimes runs off the edge of pavement causing the inside tire to carry all the weight that the two tires normally carry. We noted that situation just last week when we were following a truck on a curb-less road. His outside dual was off the edge of the pavement with nothing but air under it a good bit of the time, and the inside tire was carrying all the weight. If your weight is very near maximum for the tires, that causes the inside tire to be frequently even more overstressed than it normally is. Not counting curb strikes, the right inside tire is perhaps the most abused tire on dual-wheeled vehicles for that reason.

You might also check your coach door sticker for recommended tire size and ensure your tires are correct for the rim width. Bigger tires on narrow rims can cause rubbing between the dualie sidewalls, and kapow...

And sounds like you've been replacing just one tire at a time? A mismatch of tire types, and maybe even ages, when paired as duals could be creating problems.

Not an expert opinion, just an observation.

Make sure your right rear brake is not dragging. The inside wheel absorbs most of the heat from braking and if that brake is not releasing fully the inside tire will overheat. You can pick up an infrared thermometer for around $75 and shoot tire temperatures when you stop.
