I'm liking this idea. I'm seeing losses so I got the TST tire pressure monitoring system (TM-507SE). I have it installed on my dually's (4 sensors) and having trouble getting them on the front. I'm thinking the custom bent valves may solve my problem. I wish I had known about them before I got the extenders.

Amen. We were told that the extenders were a back up to the valve cores but had the same experience with a low tire due to the extender leaking. Our solution was a new extender but we've become a lot more vigilant on tire checking. Our normal operating mode is to change drivers every hour (or closest rest stop thereto) and it now requires a visual on the tires in addition to the toad

Check this website: Tire-Man: Products

Bought some from there for my RAM Dually and they are fantastic. They replace your current valve stems with the longer for the inner and curved for the outer so they come out of the same hole for servicing. $135.00 for the complete kit....

Hopefully Spring will come to New Jersey soon...
This may sound like a dumb question, but how do you take the wheel covers off? I assume I'd have to remove all the lug nuts?

I assume you are referring to the cable tv outlet located in the outside compartment. Yes I do have that outlet. However I have been advised by numerous satellite tv providers that they do not recommend that you try to connect your satellite feed to this cable tv outlet. That is why on the trailers and 5th wheel rigs Forest River manufacturers they install a special outlet specifically for portable satellite tv antennas in addition to the cable tv outlet. They look the same but are not the same.

Concerning the question of how do you remove your wheel cover. The answer is to remove the decorative lug nut looking bolts. These only hold on your wheel cover and not the tires. You should have received a special small looking lug nut tool with your FR3 for this specific purpose. Good luck!

Hey gem, I not being smart, but what is different in a coax connection. Does the satellite use 2 cables? Do you have a link to the site that you're referring to? I don't have a satellite, so I'm just curious.

I have a lot of satellite experience. If you start a new topic I can answer your questions
