Tire Leak

Before going out for propane this afternoon, I noticed a very low tire on my MH. It had 20 psi. Before airing it, I checked the schrader valve and was able to tighten it two full turns. I don't know if this was the cause of the leak, but the other front tire still had full pressure. I'll keep an eye on it, but has anyone else experienced a loose schrader valve as a source of air leak?

Absolutely. Turn it back out two turns and spray some soap and water solution. You will most likely see it bubble.
