Thank you!

This mod is a must for anyone with a propane BBQ or camp stove.
I added two quick connect fittings to the toyhauler for just this purpose.
I "tee'd" of the existing propane supply for the refrigerator/heater.
I also fabricated a steel shield to protect the fittings from road debris being thrown by the tires.
This will make setting up camp so much easier.

it was easy to install, I had alot of wheel & tire problems in the past and could have saved 2 tires because of long trips and running a tire flat.

so when I up graded to the Rib tires I figured if it saves me from runing a low tire than it will pay for its self.

It hasent alerted me yet to a low tire so I really dont have an opinion I did alot of reading and chose pressure pro thats about it.

Thanks, I've been considering a system for my rig.
A quality tire does seem to eliminate your tire woes. I had ribs on my old Weekend Warrior for years and I rarely had to add air.
I'm hoping the Goodyear G614's I put on my Fuzion are as trouble free.

Nice setup! Did you build the rack or is it purchased.

Either way.....

Friend made it for me in Austin, TX. It was his first production unit and he will be selling them. It works great and takes up minimal space.

Not really a mod, But I got tired of my old tool box having to pull it out move stuff around to find the tool I needed. So I bought a husky tool box, fits perfectly in the basement.
