Tip #1 Prior to each trip you take in the RVvisually inspect the lug nuts on all wheels; discoloration or rust stains around lug nuts are indicators that the lug nuts may be loose. Tip #2 If you have dual wheels it’s a good idea to add extension hoses to the valve stems tomake the job of checking tire inflation easier. It can be nearly impossible to check the inner dual without extension hoses. The best extension hoses have stainless-steel reinforcement and external braiding for a long trouble-free life. If you add extension hoses you should have any rubber valve stems replaced with all-steel valve stems. The addedweight from the extension hoses can cause rubber stems to leak air resulting in under inflation.
