Possibly a craft or hobby store? They may have a variety of colors and sizes..

Hi Jimmie,
We just bought the TST system with the flow through sensors. Out of curiosity, what did you set you tire pressure range to?
Thanks
Dan

Hey Dan,

I set mine on the low side at 55psi and the high side at 85psi...seems to work for me and I tow in the heat of the Florida summers with no problems.

Has anyone replaced their jack knife sofa with one with a fold out bed (mattress or air)? This was not an option when we ordered our trailer.. I might consider this if reasonably priced..
Thanks!

If you have a fold out couch on the kitchen slide, then there won't be enough room to open both of them against each other. Just went through this with our salesperson last month. She could've sworn that I had this in my trailer, but nope, it won't work.

Thanks again Jimmie,
The same evening I posted this question here, I asked TST and here is their response -
Our recommendations for high/low pressure alerts are 20% above/10% below the PSI in a given axle, so, for 65 PSI, your settings would be approximately 78/58. Also, during the heat of summer, it is acceptable to raise your high threshold to 25% above if you find that you regularly exceed 20% to avoid "false" alarms.

Looks like you nailed it - and much quicker in the response time!! Awesome and thanks!!

Why would you want to go to truck tire and not Special Trailer (ST) tires???
Truck tires are not made for twisting like trailer tires twist!!

Hi Stan from Tn. Not sure how to post new thread.

Did pick up our 2012 cougar 321 a few week ago and drove it back to Tn. from Florida. Sure is a super outfit and we do love it. Everything worked fine and I did check out some of the issuses listed on this fourm and everything seemed fine.

I do have a few questions to ask to see if anyone would have some insight to them. I did get the equalizer hitch with the unit and it did tow very well home. It has a 12'" shank and I needed to drop the head about 2 " which the shank that came with it would not do, so I ordered a 18" shank with a lower drop to help with this. I did get into the black knob on the lp cover and broke the black plastic and put a very small dent in my bumper. This is why I did get the 18" shank. Will this shank be to long and affect the weight distrubition on the truck being 6" back further. I have a 06 dodge ram quad cab 2500 diesel. short bed. If it does effect things I could get it cut down, what would be an acceptable length to have it cut. 16", 15" or maybe 14" ? Next question, the cougar does have a heavy 2" trailer hitch welded on in the back under the bumper. Would it be acceptable to get a hitch cargo hauler that fits on the hitch to hold a generator. Total weight would be about 200 lb not much more. Would this additional weight on the back effect the tongue very much to be concerned with ?

I hope I haven't over loaded you folks with to much but any input would be very helpful. We are planning on going to pueblo Co. in May and I do want to have things set up properly.

Thanks again for all your help and info. Stan and Kathy in Tn.
