I agree 100% about installing the rain covers. I will use the cover already installed on the Kitchen vent fan as my guide for the other vent fans covers!

Dino, you can also get chrome tips at most auto parts stores, they usually have a good selection.

Regarding tire pressures, are the monitoring systems calibrated, or do you need to calibrate them for accurate PSI readings?
They are already calibrated but the instructions say =- a couple pounds. When I check my tires I use a tire gauge and the TPMS Its close enough for me.

Don,
I just checked the chart Dave posted. Its a little different than the one I originally used. Using that chart the rears should be less. I'm staying with the 82 in the rears. It runs well and its not a harsh ride (which is what normally happens if you have to much air in the tires.)

Dino,
You know you're killing me RIGHT!!!

Amazon showed up today with my Dash Cam20, 4 new sensors for the TMPS (these will go on the Jeep when we tow her) a new grease gun and Ford grease so I can lube the front end.

Dino thanks buddy for helping me spend my money

My mh is still at the dealer getting minor warranty work done. I am hoping to get it back early next week so I can start work on the drivers side storage rack and anything else Dino does that my wife wants.


Jerry

Beautiful job! Makes you wonder why Thor did not do that in the beginning.
