How I installed Externion hoses

With just a hub cap I did this.

Pop rivet to side of hub cap.

With Wheel simulators you might find it easier to do this.

Install the retaining 'L" brackets to the face of the center hub.

You may note that I have labeled my TPM sensors. This eliminates the need to re-program the monitor whenever I remove the sensors for any reason.

Unless the end of the stem is damaged or the "O" ring in the stem end of the hose is damaged, hoses do not need to be much more than tight enough so no air is leaking i.e. finger tight (check with soap water spray) plus 1/4 turn is plenty.
I write a blog on RV tire application and safety.
Also give seminars on tires at RV events across the US. 40 years experience as tire design & quality engineer for major tire mfg. Freelander 23QB on Chevy chassis is my RV
