Earlier this year we installed the Valor TPMS – Tire Pressure Management System in haRVey.
Up until now, the method of checking our towed Toyota car Lilly was a handheld tire gauge. This was only happening from time to time.
We took Lilly to Rick’s Auto repair in Rodney Ontario for installation of sensors inside her tires.
Nick the technician did a great job getting the clamps and sensors installed. I had the opportunity to help with the installation. After a quick balance of each of the tires they were reinstalled.
Each sensor has its own corresponding chip and identification. I ensured that each chip was marked with the corresponding tire position LF LR RR and RF.
The next step was the placement of the chips into the Valor command module.
It was a quick call to the north American distributor Don and I will step through resetting the computer. It was a piece of cake and just like that Lily was reporting temperature.
Now now as we travel down the we will constantly have a readout of the pressure on each of the 10 tires. If the pressure or temperature changes outside the parameters we will be alerted giving us plenty of time for us to pullover and avoid a costly accident.
Were glad to have this safety measure in place as we head on down the highway.
A challenge with living full-time in our RV is connecting with friends that visit our hometown. We were thankfull to have a visit with Tammy and Mike from The Netherlands.
Our travels together took us to Erieau Ontario to see the higher than normal water level of Lake Erie.
It’s always terrific to spend time together getting the best pictures is an adventure in itself.
A day of adventures is never complete without a walk on the Port Glasgow beach a a visit to a favorite of ours, Tall tales cafe
We had the opportunity to craft a story, collectively with the kids about the Niagara River monster. A definite tall tale! The tallest tale teller of all went to our great friend Mike!
With our home base park closing at the end of October we were invited to stay at our friends Bob and Simone in Dutton Ontario.
We had a great stay with them and we’re very thankful. a great staging point for us for water and to fill up our propane at the local Rona.
We had the opportunity to visit Strathroy and have Lunch with our friends Tena and Grant.
They always have tips and are happy to dream with us on what the upcoming trip may have in-store. Thank you dear folks.
Aftera quick trip to pick up haRVey we were on the way to our first night stopover at Tilbury Enroute rest stop. It appeared from the number of neighbours that we had at night they had the same idea.
We were up and ready to roll leaving at 6:38. With clear roads and warning of snow showers later this week we are heading south.
