Only one of the rear tires is turning. Followed the steps in the trouble shooting section of the manual. Still no help. Any advice or help would be great. also cannot seem to find a service center and no one answers the phone . We were on hold for a total of an hour and a half today.

There is a place to add air on the inside of the wheel (rim) of the tire. The problem would be will it hold air.
First get a tire pressure gauge and check the air in one of the two good tires to get a good pressure on it.
I must caution that if you use a compressor to air it up you will blow the tire in about two seconds. So use a standard foot bike tire pump. It airs up on the little valve stem sticking out from the inside of the wheel (see diagram)
Should the tire not hold air then you will patch it just like a standard bike tire. Follow these steps.
First put some air in the tire.
Now get some soapy water and splash it liberal on the tire in and note where the air is leaking from.
Put your thumb on the leak and mark the hole clearly with some chalk. Drawing a small circle around the leak works best.
First the nut on the bolt on the side of the wheel has a lock pin that needs to come out. Straiten it with a pair of pliers and then pull it out.
Now remove the nut with a wrench or socket.
now pull the bolt out.
Now the wheel will come out of the fork. Mind the placement of the washers as they need to go back where they are upon reassemble.
Now let all the air out of the tire by pushing on the end of the valve stem and pressing on the tire.
Now take a flat screwdriver and gently wedge it between the wheel and tire and walk the tire off the rim.
Now do the same withe the remaining side until the tire is off the wheel completely.
Now use a standard tire patch and repair the leak.
Now reverse to get the tire back on the wheel and the wheel back on the stroller.
Air tire to proper pressure.
I have also included a picture of where to fill the tire from.
Use a wedge. Place the thin end between the tire and rim. Then push the tire off using the wedge and your other hand, work your way around the circumference of the tire until it is off. Use the same process to put the new tire on. But this time you will push the tire on the rim. This is a pic of the ideal tool you should use:
Replacing the rear tire is a real nightmare.....you are much better off purchasing the entire rear wheel assembly which you can do from the Australian distributors Funtastic for only about $10-$15 more than if you just bought the tire.
To replace the tire you need to use a bench vice which a couple of bolts clamped into it to hold the hub in place.....you then need to remove the sprocket assembly which is a reverse thread......i had to use a hammer and a large flat head screw driver wrapped in a rag so as not to tear up the teeth.
Once you've loosened the sprocket assembly you have to undo the bolts the hold the two sides of the wheel together and the tire will come right off.
All of this would be totally unecessary if they used a tire that you could remove just like any other mini motorcycle tire.
They don;t and so it is what it is.
As I said, next time just buy the whole assemble and then it's very straight forward.
Generally I put the front and rear tires @ 40 psi. You get better gas mileage , plus it rolls better when you have to push it around, but you also get better tire wear. I would set your rear air suspension around 12 -15 psi.
