Hello,
If you are then first check your valve stem extenders, especially if they are the braided kind.
Had a left rear tire that was loseing air slowly at first but then started getting worst. Finally took it to the truck tire service center. Turns out it was just a loose connection on the flexible braided valve stem. I have read several posts about this but hadn't had any trouble for more then a year until the recent trouble so figured I had ran over something. I doubt I could have gotten to the connection point myself but you might be able to and save yourself some trouble.

All tires loose air. The Industry standard is 2 to 3 lbs per month. You have to check them all the time.

UPS34,
Yes that is for sure. My wife thinks I check them to often but I want to know the pressure is good.
Had a friend that was lackadasical about it and on one trip after we had stopped at a rest stop I kicked the outside dual on his pickup and it was completely flat. I hate to think what would have happened if we hadn't just stopped as he was hooked to alarge fifth wheel. It wouldn't have been to long before the inside dual overheated and blew from to much weight.
