Not nearly...... But since his DW would probably never use it while dressed in evening clothes, it shouldn't be any big deal for it to be flat black enamel.

Boowho??

It's all about looking good in ALL aspects of MY Berkshire so gotta have the chrome.... I'm sure numerous other Berk owners agree... Plus it's worth the extra $10 bucks to me....

Love the chrome but I don't have the extra cargo carrying weight capacity to spare for such heavy duty chrome tools so I use a flimsy regular old manual awning rod

Wow - you must really play your weight close to the max if an extra two pounds can make such a difference....

I only posted the picture of this thing because I thought others might be interested... I'm using this one and I recommend that everyone else use what best fits their weight capacity, budget or personal preference...

Just pokin fun I do think the chrome tool is pretty cool. If it could double as a fireplace poker I could eliminate another tool I carry and be even a few more lbs less overweight. I got the awning rod for placing and pulling pads I put under the jacks but thanks to this thread I now have another use for it. I had no idea about draining the tanks and just found the loops behind the tires. I had previously thought the air empties out when putting the leveling jacks down.

mjracsj,
The air that empties when you use the leveling jacks is just from the air bags, not the tanks.

ernest/boo,
what do you guys charge for shipping? I could use one of those pullers!!

I have a garage compressor/tank I bought new in 1997 from Sears. Have never drained it and I'm not sure it has a drain valve, (In the old days we called these petcocks).

Maybe I should check it.

Suggestion - enroll in a big rig driving school and you might get one when you graduate.

I have an older Sears one and it has a shader (sp) valve on the tank bottom. I leave it open when I am not using it.
