Adding pressure to the tire is harmless, it just makes the leak worse. Correct your pressure before towing and you'll be fine.

I'll take a look. I doubt that I can get it up to 150 psi, though. I'll definitely be soapy mix spraying it.

Oh, I didn't know you had 130psi tires. That pressure should show it fine.

Yep, 125 psi. That one was down to something like 118 psi. I normally wouldn't be too worried about 7 psi in the grand scheme of things, it's just the second time (first stop was 2 weeks, this stop was 3 weeks) that it was lower than the others.

Installing Sirius satellite radio docking stations for my coach radio and cab radio. I'll post pics when I'm finished.

OK with the new separate coach radio comes the dilemma if you get Sirius radio for the cab radio you can't play it in the coach. Now the coach radio is a huge improvement over the cab radio doing everything. So I got a portable Sirius radio with two docking stations and connected one to the cab radio and the other to the coach radio. Ran the output to the rear inputs of both radios. Works great.

First pic is the cab install in front of the useless open slot. The second pic is the coach install inside the little cabinet next to coach radio.
