Harry...Harry,

It warms my heart to know that you've always shown so much love, affection and—support—for our 4 legged friends throughout all your posts and your obvious passion for the planet by doing everything you can to salvage the remaining owls, seals, whales, polar bears, endangered fish, spotted owl, a multitude of other animal warm blooded animals and our forests in general...just to name few. But what really makes no sense to me Harry, is why, why haven't you become an irv2 supporter to also show your devotion and—support—to this RV community in general after all your hundreds of posts? Are animals more important to you Harry? How about trees? Fish? Deep down in the bowels of your heart Harry, (this is where you search your soul) "is the RV community just another public forum that you feel you have a right to come and just feed in the informational trough"? Hmmmmm! Is it? It doesn't make sense Harry. It just doesn't make sense.

I'll let others handle the tire valve stem issue but I still love your wood ceilings. BTW...I've nick named your MH "the Beav" when I talk about you in other circles.

Boy I had fun writing this post. Love you Harry.

Not sure what type wheels are on your rig so cannot offer specifics. Tried looking them up on the old Prevost and seen several variations.

On my rears the outer wheel has a stem that runs parallel with the tire.
On the inner I have a long one piece valve stem that goes through the outer wheel and easily accessed. All have TPMS sensors on them. Upper right of wheel is inner stem poking through.

Hey Marjoa,

I'm glad you got all that out, all that pent up emotion isn't good for you. And WoW, I didn't even know there were so many animals, fish and wildlife in general not to like!

Some months ago someone told me, maybe it was you, that you could donate to the forum which I did not know. I went to donate that very day and PayPal was the only way to do so. I sent a message to the forum saying I want to donate through my own card and let me know how to do that. I never heard back! If you can tell me how to do that I'm all in...

Harry aka "The Beav"

I have the TST system. I don't know if this is the same for other systems, but with TST, the sensor battery is being used whenever the sensor is attached to the tire. When traveling, I leave the sensors on all the time, but when I get home, I take them off.

I have the non-flow thru sensor. I removed the "theft lock" by just removing the 4 screws holding the cap. This makes it much easier to put the sensor on.

On my coach, I simply loosened the nut that holds the valve stem to the aluminum wheel and rotated the valve so it is running parallel to the wheel and retighten the nut. So easy to do I could probably train one of our cats to do it!

On other past forum post some owners have commented that because of the length of the stem used, the end would hit the aluminum and they couldn't rotate it all the way around. One owner had to let the air out of the tire and push the valve in a bit to get it to clear the wheel.

Hey, the valve stem points into the wheel... Really?

I solved this problem by installing Dually valve stems when we put on new tires, but you can install them anytime. Much, much better than any extensions. I tried a few types of extensions previously but they usually leaked.

Harry,

No that wasn't me and it sounds like you didn't get my "tongue-in-cheek" humor". I have always enjoyed posts that—pick on you—of sorts and I thought I'd take your post to the nth degree by calling you out the way I did. I actually was laughing the entire time I wrote my post. Not pent up at all, but I can see how you (or maybe others) may have thought I was if read wrong. People that know me, when we get together, we laugh our butts off all the time going back and forth like this. But on the web, nobody really "knows" me and therefore unfortunately, absurd humor many times doesn't come across well on the internet. I think I missed judged your playfulness. I have also noticed that—life in general—many people's humor slowly disappears as they get older. I'm 65 and try to keep mine in tack with constant practice. This forum is probably not the place for me to play with words. Or as Joe Friday always said, "stick with the facts Martin, just the facts".
