valve stem leak

Has this happened to anyone, I put on tst 507s on my 5th-wheel tires, and about 250 miles out I notice one tire slowly start to lose air about 5 pounds in about 45 min. I stopped and found that the valve stem nut was loose and was leaking air, I tightened the nut with a pair of pliers and everything has been good since.

Not a common problem. But I do remember seeing posts before of the same problem, and cure.

That is the cure. The valve stem nut was loose. You fixed it
