We use dually valves, expensive but simplifies the inflation process. Big plus is gods ones last a long time. Extenders will leak after time.

We are indeed full of information and questions and ponders and musings and mullings and some may even be full of it from time to time.

That makes at least two of us... and I have said it before - I am so glad you two - and let's see if my tired Ole memory is working - Bess the wonder dog will be there...
And Bob will also it fly... weather permitting of course...

You are not getting a diesel pusher with air brakes?

Here's my story and I'm sticking to it: I have a 6 gallon 150 psi compressor. I tried using it for my 110 psi tires but it was so darn slow. I had to let the tank build up to the 150 psi, then put the chuck on the valve stem and "bump" the air into the tire. Then back off and repeat the process. It took forever for me to get 4 to 6 pounds of air in the tire.

So, since the 150 psi, 6 gallon compressor would not keep up with the volume I decided to try the on-board compressor that is used to provide a 125 psi braking system. I don't know of any MH with air brakes that does not have a fitting for a tow truck to hook up to and release the air brakes. That is the same fitting used to inflate my tires. I can put a 1 psi of air in my tire in about 30 to 45 seconds. So much faster than the 150 psi 6 gallon tank.

My story, and I'm sticking to it.

Me 3 or 4. I read every post. I have since post 1. First thing in the morning I catch up, then in the evening around 10 p.m. I catch up again. Sometimes I catch up during the day. Just ask Earlene....no never mind, don't ask her, she'll lie.

Only from the house computer or the laptop when on the road. Phones and ipads are to small for me to bother with.

Didn't see any goat heads and could only find 2 grass bur plants that I dug up root and all in the small dog park. It's twice the size of the one in Phoenix. I went looking for her poop, but couldn't find it. While I was searching I found and elimated those evil things. This is the 2nd best dog park we've been to after Yuma AZ

Lily is definitely my social butterfly. Sena never left my shirt. When the little dog side of the park got empty we went over to play with the big guys. You should have seen her trying to sniff a Great Dane back side. She went over to the dog, looked up and then looked back at me as if to say, "Now how do I do this one?"


Rockport is a very progressive little town. There were plaques everywhere showing that individuals and businesses had contributed $ to build a fence section. It would be easy to become a Winter Texan here, but I think I'm allergic lto something that was in the air today.

Wayne - I'm pretty sure they will have a 6.8L Triton*V10 gasser..

So no air brakes methinks.

Or maybe it was just the lack of AirdZona dust in the air, and you were having trouble breathing clean gulf coast air.

Judy, I grew up in Texas. There are both goat heads and grass burs as well as rattlesnakes, fire ants, horny toads and coyotes here. One RV park I looked at had signs up warning of alligatos in the pond.

This link will show you what I'm taking about

https://www.google.com/?client=safar...tm%3B260%3B390

The stalks with the stickers on them stand up 10-12" and will catch on your socks, shoe laces ant pants. They are often worse than goat heads. If you try to control them by mowing, they'll lay the stickers flat on the ground.

Go ahead and send them. I can take care of myself. They have been after me before. Must be a conspiracy.
