Just trying to point out that the RV wheels should not have had rubber stems in the first place.

I use this exact monitor Vintage Fish Whacker Wood Bat 1978 Vanderhoff Fishing | eBay
Found a low tire on the truck the other morning, had a hard time finding somewhere to getting the screw removed so we could continue our trip.

I'm courious. just how low was the tire and how long had it been below your calculated mimimum pressure before you identidied it was low using your "thumper"?

In controlled tests I have never seen any thumper be more accurate than 15psi and usually off by 25psi on tires that should have 105 psi.

TST seems to be the most popular. I have the rubber steel combo stems. Why didn't it work with these ? Believe steel stems best but couldn't one get by with the rubber stems until next tire change ?
