that window is really nice if I were full timing I would think about one like that. When I'm camping in the back woods of Idaho I want to see who is outside my door.

Removed the original Shurflo 2088-403-144 water pump and installed a new Shurflo 4008-101-E65 3.0 Evolution pump. Made a big difference. The new pump is quieter and has better pressure than the old one.

The old pump is now my FW tank fill pump.

Both, I think....according to the specs on both models. It definitely seems to be pushing more water. It's actually better than the pressure at a local KOA's full hook-up site. So DW and I are happy with the upgrade.

Being a little concerned about the C rated tires on my TT and reading all the posts about the TST507 TPMS I ordered one. It arrived today, I programed it and will install the sending units tomorrow on my 1" high rubber valve stems, I'm hoping the rubber stems don't cause a problem. I'm looking forward to trying the system on the highway

I've always read you should use metal valve steams.

You know I have heard that also however I can't find anything in the manual with the TST507 where it says that. I'm going to reread to see if I missed something.

Comes from those that have experience with using them...seems the rubber ones don't like the added weight over time

I'm running 65 psi in my truck's tires with rubber valve stems so it's not a matter of the air pressure but the extra weight of the TPMS sensors on the valve stems would make it advisable.

Thanks for the input all good thoughts. I think what I'm going to do is stick with the rubber stems until I change the tires out after this season (of if something happens sooner) first step will be getting them rebalanced. I will let the forum know how the stems/sensors hold up. If I didn't mention it I have short rubber stems about one inch

You might be lucky enough to make one season provided you don't travel very far or very often. Don't ask how I know.
