That has happened to me before, it almost always ends up being the valve stem in my experience. They are a good looking tire for sure!

Ding, ding, ding, ding.  Yep, it was the valve stem.  I like them a heck of a lot better than those blasted Mastercrafts  that came with it.  A nice balance between a road tire and some bite if I want to meander a bit.

We replaced the DUMPY Bridgestones that came on the 2013 last month... The originals had 42k miles on them, the tread was worn unevenly, and the beads were ALL dryrotted and cracked...

We went with Cooper Discoverer HT Extra Load. So far, I love them! The tread block is wonderful and the rain performance is second to none! I can't wait to try them out this winter!

 Installed new valve cover gaskets and seals today.
Well I found this in the processes. Do not have time to deal with it until next week.

Wow you have red wiring to the positive and negative battery posts, not a good idea.

Itís been that way for years. Thatís all I had when I put the auxiliary battery in.
One of those Iíll fix later. Not many people get to touch my AVY.

I'll do the clean and paint if you buy the batteries.

I think every one has there own reasons to have a second battery. I have two in my AV because my 08 left me stranded three times with a dead battery so I remedied that problem in my 2011.

For the second time this year a police officer pulled up beside me and tried to get my attention.

This time he said those lights are on point, the first one said those lights are sweet. Heck it's 90 degree and the AC was blowing hard. Then I get the occasional my son wants to see the lights or can I blow the train horns.  banghead
