replaced the seat swivel cable on the driver seat. The new replacements are larger so I had to cut and grind out a larger hole to install the replacements. The old lever snapped off and the new ones seem Herkier ( technical word). Flexsteel could have replaced original size with metal levers and this would have been an easy swap out.

Transmission Cooler

We had a ruptured hose in the transmission lines, so when the mechanic replaced the hoses, I had him bypass the radiator and put in a transmission cooler rated for vehicles of 22500 GVW, the biggest one NAPA sells.

We bought new convex mirrors as the old ones had stress cracked, then DH totally trashed the passenger side one by whacking it on a road sign. I told him to move over & he chose to argue with me instead of listening. I can still hear the whack!

Melody - You may have lost the mirror that day but you have the rest of your life to remind him "I told you so".

My DW wife loves moments like that.

Background 1st: Bought new tires in April of this year, Hercules H-901's, love them. But I had a problem with one the front ones in that I could not check the tire pressure without having to take off the hub cap (sort of). So I bought these: Wheel Masters 8029 45 Degree Valve Extender

Installed them on the front this past weekend and noticed that one of the wheels had a metal valve stem and the other was rubber! When I had the tires put on I specifically told them to replace any rubber valve stems with metal. But I went ahead and put on these 45' valve extenders just so I could measure the tire presses before trips. I used a 3/8" open end wrench to ensure they were good in tight. Measured the pressure, wrote it down in my log book and headed off to Benewah Lake, south of Coeur d'Alene, ID.

Had a great time, then headed home.

As there was a picnic for a friend who was leaving so we went straight to their place. I got out of the RV and OH MY GOSH!! The right front tire was OBVIOUSLY LOW! I tested it...32 POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea! Obviously the 45' valve extender must have leaked (Not actually new news if you read the comments on these things on Amazon).

So 1st off, going to get the rubber valve stem changed, and I may or may not uses these extenders again (the other tire with the steel valve stem was fine).

But the BIGGEST change will be to check the tires before I LEAVE the campground!
I"m pretty sure I've read that somewhere on one of these forums but didn't take it to heart. I have now!

I have run solid metal extensions on METAL valve stems for 10 years/90k miles with no issues other than problems setting one up when I bought inferior replacement extensions from a tire place. Once I got better quality extensions, no more problems. I also have the rubber stabilizer donuts on mine. As you learned, extensions should NEVER be used on rubber valve stems as the flexing of the stem will unscrew/loosen the extensions.

Do you have a recommendation on the better quality ones? I just found these on Amazon.
Thanks!
