In-cab tyre pressure regulation

Post by Swisslulu »

Does anyone have any experience with this system? It seems to be available for trucks and could be adapted for MHs.

Air Space Cti is what Erich is looking at. We are used to taking our off road caravan into the wild blue yonder with reduced tyre pressure. Not happy being constrained with a motorhome. We have an Iveco based Motorhome which is a truck at heart.

Most of their trucks are 4WD & single on rears.
😳 Are the front ones married? 🙄

... and I’ve tried that position. 🤭😜

I owned a Hummer fitted with the internal plumbed version for over ten years and when it was working it was brilliant, as time went on though small leaks appeared leading to flat tyres when you woke of a morning, easily detected before you even got up due to the rooftop tent being on a slope ;-))
Unless you are intending to use it EVERY day like logging trucks and trucks working on soft terrain between stints on the road then I would forget the idea.
Much easier to drop pressures when required and reinflate when necessary especially as most are retired and time really is of little consequence.

We like to have tyre monitors on our motorhome and toad. On the rear wheels of the motorhome they are a pain to take off and put back on. There are brackets that hold the valve away from the rim. To get to the screws of the tyre monitor I have to undo the bracket and then put it back again once inflated. For me it is not easy to do that - on one occasion it took me more than half an hour to do one tyre. Doing 4 tyres is a nightmare and would exhaust me.

Of course if anyone has a solution that would allow me to remove the tyre monitor without removing the bracket, that would be the way to go.

Air-cti does do dual wheels

The above is an example of a 6x6 truck.

In regards to air leaks... Air-Cti recommends to turn the hoses of the system to off while not driving. This appears to be a simple toggle on their system.

Eric you might be able to have a second valve stem fitted to the wheels, I have a second valve in my current wheels for just that reason to avoid having to remove the sensors to adjust tyre pressures. I gave up on internal sensors as the batteries only last a few years and required new sensors as you couldn't replace the batteries.
The Hummer had a master "switch" to isolate either individual, pairs or the lot but the all the bits between the wheels and the valves still had to reliably hold air which as they aged they didn't sometimes.

Any chance of you posting a picture of your wheel/valves? I can't quite picture it. Who did the setup for you? A tyre place?
