Creativepart-my Bigfoot is the model with the controller in the step well not on the tether. No automatic button, power and start. Why is the unit on all the time when I drive and I can't shut it off by pushing power?

The "J" valve stem on the passenger side is leaking, only have 60 psi and the valve had moved while traveling yesterday. I don't know if my portable 12v air pump will reach to it and if I can attach it to the stem.

Hey SCD, my Bigfoot is also in the stairwell - but it's fully automatic.

And, like you one of my J valve stems is leaking too. At some point I need to replace them all with new solid stems and get rid of the extensions.

Creativepart-My levelers say Platinum and the panel is green. The fully automatic is a darker color with gold print and says Bigfoot down on the bottom.

When I get home Friday, I will pull off one of the 5 1/4" truck valve extensions from my Winnebago and see if it will work for the Forester. It may not and require a long stem that can be bent. If the extension works, I can swing by Borg Tire supply (yourtiresupplyshop.com) and pick up the "J" valves, extensions and stabilizer boots. Then I can take the MH into America's Tire store and have them install the "J" valves on the outer two rears and I can easily install the extensions and stabilizers. Otherwise, I will have to buy their dually kit for $120 and have both inner and outer tires valves replaced. I did have to trim the steel wheel liners on the rear for the "J" valve to fit the opening on the Winnebago. Boy what a difference it made. Oh, the stabilzer boot is oval for the Forester and round for the Winnebago. I need to remember that.

Getting a lot accomplished on this shakedown trip. Will most likely stop at the dealer on the way home friday and have them do a quick check on the levelers.
