    Unhappy Valve stems

    So we have noticed two of our tires slowly going soft since we bought our unit home. Figured it was bad valve stems and working with the dealer got the ok to have them changed out locally and submit the bill for warranty to them.

    So this morning I drop the unit off at the tire store, and sure enough, 4 leaking valve stems, but on a more serious note I have a rim that has a hole in it and is leaking badly.

    Notified dealer, and Grand Design customer service, they have been great! Was asked to send email with video of leak and picture to Lionshead.

    So now we wait, was supposed to leave Thursday for a trip, but now that is up in the air.

    Will update as I know more.

    As far as I'm concerned, every RV needs metal valve stems installed and a set of sensors for TPMS system. Complaints on leaky rubber valve stems are seen often on RV forums.

    Good luck to you on the wheel. That's a new one to me.
