Ready to see the US

After decades of dreaming of traveling and camping across N. America, I'm finally retired and ready. Ordered a Lazy Daze 24' back in January and just took delivery in August; they really make one wait , but I think it's worth it. After a couple shake down trips to nearby So Calif. NF campgrounds to check everything out, we're ready for a 2 month trip to the Northwest.

One question needing your help; should I get valve stem extenders right away? Flexible or rigid? How about tire pressure monitors and which brand?

Thanks a million.

I would ask your question in a different post so you get more responses, as it gets lost in this new member check in...

Hi and Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the gang!

Like Pat said, you will get much results if you post questions over in the specific areas of the forum. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area so your responses will be very limited.

I use the TireTraker TPMS system and can recommend it. I use the flexible valve stem extenders.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Howdy and welcome! Congrats on the new rig, and yes... TPMS are a great idea. A forum search (above) will give you lots of info about the different brands.

Howdy and welcome.

I've been FT for 3 + years now, and its just my opinion of course, but I went with valve extensions on the rear only, and yes, monitors on on the tires to include the TOAD. the monitoring system saved me from a tire failure last year on a side road just prior to hitting the highway...caught the leaking tire on alarm, stopped to check it out, and had to have it replaced.

I can't imagine what it would have been to lose it at highway speed.

Good luck on your new adventures.

Welcome and glad to meet you!

Valve Extenders - Yes. Easier to check tire pressure.

Thanks for your kind welcome and helpful comments.
After some research, I've decided to go with the Borg stems and the TST 507rv flow through TPMS.
Happy traveling and be safe to all.
