    I hope you can answer a question for me as you seem to be the guy to go to on the FR forum. I have a FR Georgetown (very first RV) and want to add a TPMS. I have a short 45 degree stem adapter on the outer dual. If I attach an extension hose from the inner dual to the simulator hub (which I now see is attached to the rest of the simulator by 5 rivets) and attach the TPMS sensor to this and the other sensor to the short extension on the outer tire will the lack of balance on the hub possibly cause it to separate from the rest of the simulator?
    Thank you in advance for your educated opinion.

    Hi Roger, Have you installed the TST TPMS I sent you yet?

    Hello & sorry to bother you. Did a search, but could not find the answer to my question ( actually my brother's question ). He just bought a tire monitoring system. There is no clear instruction about how high/low tire pressure should go or how high temperature should go before an alert is triggered. Specifically, he has Goodyear G614 tires. But is there a rule of thumb for any tire?

    Just saw you have a blog. Looks to be packed with info. I suspect I will find my answers there. Many thanks.

    Since obviously you are the resident expert on tires I thought I would PM you about tires for my trailer. If I do it on the forum the popcorn will come out and all I'm looking for is a no BS recommendation. I currently have Provider ST225/75 R15 D tires on my 28 ft trailer. Loaded weight is about 7500 lbs. I was wanting to go to an E rated LT but I'm not having much luck finding them in my size. Marathon seems to be getting a bad rap and maxxis doesn't have what I'm looking for in ST's. I run TPMS and just don't want a catastrophic failure as this will cause a really bad problem with ripping out wiring and gas lines the way my trailer is constructed. BTW it's an Ever-lite 232 RBS (orphan). If this were your trailer what would you do. You know a heck of a lot more about this than I do. Thanks for your help.

    Nope. Haven't been invited to an Escapees event (yet). You can check out my Tire Blog RVTireSafety dot com and learn more.

    Just curious, are you Neil, the Escapees tire instructor at Boot Camp?
