Our Sightseer came with valve extensions for the inside duals. I installed 135degree steel valve extention on the outside duals. I also have dual foot pressure gage/adaptor for my portable air compressor/tank. After you load your MH, have each corner weighed, then check tire manufacturer website for corresponding air pressure for the weight carried per tire/axle. You may need to move things around to get the weight per tire/axle as close as possible.

Relax, drive safely, and enjoy God's creations.

I wanted to stress getting the coach weighed as if you are going to be camping. If you can't get the 4 corner weight at least get the axles weighed and use the table from youor tire manufacturer to determine correct pressure.

Sorry to preach, but you may find you can lower your tire pressure and improve your handling.

Gary two, welcome to the forum.

The posts about having the coach weighed, and then setting the tire pressures according to the tire manufacturers tables is most important.

I bought a dual footed tire gauge and also a dual footed chock. This allows be to check and fill all of the rear tires as necessary with out any extensions coming loose.

This reminds me of a question. When you purchase a tire gauge, how do you know it reads accurately? I recently installed the presure pro system and find about a 5 psi variance between my guage and the pressure pro.

BLUE HORIZON: I use three separate gages on at least two tires. One is a digital truck gage. If they all read the same, I am confident. If two are same, one is different, I know which one is not accurate.
