No rain or snow on the roads. Tires are fine

The rig is in AWD all the time, that is why it is called All Wheel Drive, when a tire slips a predetermined amount then the system transfers power to the tires that have a better contact with the road surface, normally you never feel it doing its job, so if you are starting to feel the system cycling around then attention is warranted, you want to catch any problems quickly as it can get very expensive very quickly.
