Starting small.
Leveling bubbles where I can see them from the
Level-Up control panel. I very rarely use
the automatic feature as it raises the coach too
high. I find manual mode to be much easier.
I did level the coach using a carpenters level and
reset the “Zero Point” on the Level-Up.

Locking Gas Cap

Next was also simple. A locking gas cap. This one was
salvaged from my totaled Coachmen Pursuit (F-53 Chassis)
I used a grommet and a push pin to plug the hole where
the teather was anchored. Don’t want water or gas in there.

Smart TPMS

Started installing my TireMinder system. Fronts are a no
brainer. Duallys don’t work on the plastic factory inner extensions
or the 120* outers. I’m looking for different valve stem extensions now...
First issue is my wheel liners are hammer on.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I use a claw hammer-very carefully rims of simulator will bend easily- to remove mine and rubber mallet to reinstall These have been recommended in past threads. As for the tire pressure system I use the pass thru TST507 sensors and the original extensions. I would suggest rubber manhole stabilizers for the inner dually for peace of mind

I use a small pry bar that is about an 1 1/2” wide and they pop right off and a rubber mallet to put them on. I also have the Tireminder and used Pacific Dualies braided extensions. I managed to fit a couple of the rubber stabilizers in but the others I swivel in behind the wheel covers. Be careful working thru the holes in the wheel covers the back edges of the holes are pretty sharp.

Thanks guys but you misread my post. The subject is valve stem extensions that work
with hammer on wheel covers. BTW I use the small pry bar and a rubber mallet.

I removed the 135* extensions on the outers and the 7” plastic extensions on the inners.
I can reach the valve stems through the 4” hand holds on the steel wheel. So for now, my TPMS transmitters are on the short valve stems. Thinking about leaving them that way.

Safe

Installed a Sentry Waterproof/Fire Resistant Safe today. Sorry - No pics
of that for obvious reasons.

I used the original angled metal extensions and added long straight metal extensions with lock tite blue. Then I installed the oval rubber stabilizers to keep them solidly in place. I use the eez tire flow through sensors. There are more expensive options but mine works. I probably spent $30.00 on the parts not counting the sensors. I think I got the metal extensions on Ebay or Amazon.

Un-Mod

The TV was rattling on the way home so I pulled it off to see why.
Turns out one of the 4 mounting screws on the plate that attaches
to the TV was loose. The correct mounting screws supplied by Furrion
were in the bag attached to the owners manual. So I guess you can say
that I un-modified the factory mod by using the correct screws!
