Thank you for getting back to me Bob. We were in Honesdale a few years ago with our Motorhome visiting Calkins Creamery it's a nice area.
Ted, it sounds like you experienced the same thing with your valve stems that we did. I hope they hold air now that you tightened them.

I have experienced the same condition of the rear outside dual tires going to 0 pressure (while parked for a few days) after about 1,000 miles on our unit. After spraying soapy water on the connection from the tire air valve to the extension and pushing the braided extension hose around slightly, bubbles appeared indicating an air leak. Since it was the outside wheel, I was able to get a small open ended wrench on the connection nut and tighten it. Before putting the wrench on it, I was able to turn it with my fingers. Possibly the installer never went back and tightened the connection during the initial installation. I checked the pressure two days later and it has held. I have yet to take a trip and monitor them to make sure they do not loosen up while going down the road.

I have had a bad experience in our previous rig after getting new tires installed by a shop not familiar with these extensions. They installed rubber air valve stems in the steel rims and connected the extensions to the stems. After two days into our 3 week trip, we lost tire pressure due to the extensions vibrating and causing the rubber valve stems to split at the steel wheel. Because of this I will be replacing the valve stems with extended chrome or brass valve stems if I have any more issues with the extensions or when it is time to get new tires.

Thank you Mike for the good suggestions.  Your approach sounds very sensible, and I will try that in a day or two.
Will let you know if it works for me.
A "Helpful" for you!   ThankYou

Thanks for the welcome Ron.  I have read the Tricks and Tips section paying particular attention to your post on the Tripp Lite Inverter/Charger.  I am still trying to understand the coach electrical system and will likely have questions specific to the Tripp Lite system.  I will ask for help for sure!

All is fixed now. It is 37 degrees out, not quite freezing but cold and windy. The rains stopped from yesterday so I got the gray water dump valve motor back on the valve. Thanks to Barry for his post about the gear, I called the factory and they sent me a new gear for free.

Thank you Berry.  ThankYou

I had a bit of a struggle with this myself when I was installing tire pressure sensors.  It took a few attempts, but I found that I had the best success by trying to keep the wheel cover as parallel to the wheel as possible.  I put my hands at the ten o'clock and two o'clock positions and my knees at the 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock positions and applied pressure a bit at a time without allowing any one position to get too far ahead of the others.  Once the wheel cover is halfway in it became much easier to use the heel of my palm to tap in each position.  If this hadn't worked I would have thoroughly cleaned the rim and wheel cover and applied some lubricant to the tabs on the wheel cover.  I'm guessing that if they are abnormally tight there might be a problem with the wheel, or the tabs need to be bent a slight amount.

Duh- and a bit embarrassing. We spent a lot of time locking unlocking, checking batteries, cleaning the contacts for the steps. Do I feel silly or what!

Thanks fro the welcome Tom.  We live in Frederick MD.

Oops, I thought you lived east of Baltimore but I was wrong again.

We live in Glenwood, just of half way from Frederick to Baltimore. We do a lot of our shopping and have many friends that live in Frederick. My wife and I are both retired and have lots of free time if you want to get together some time.
