    Default Tire Pressure - How Often do you check?

    We had a little surprise at the station last night. Dug out the truck tire gague, and found that the inside tires on our tender were way low - 30 pounds low! Time for everyone to get out those pumps and pump them up! I wonder if this might be a cause of those tender rollovers.

    Be Safe!

    We hit the tires on the daily inspection and with the pressure gauge weekly.

    We check ours with a gauge every two weeks at a minimum. We also installed "Crossfire" systems on all the duals on the trucks. It links the two tires, and has a three color indicator to show correct, +10, or -10 pounds. It also has a feature so that if one tires leaks down, the other doesn't join it, although I'm not sure how it works!

    Iceman, where would I find a "crossfire" system? Truck stops? Auto repair/parts? I might get the chief to go for them.
