It never ends..again

Checking tire pressure on the Montana. TPMS shows left front at 74 psi.It was perfect last weekend. Find valve stem spinning loose how can that happen standing still. Good news loosen lug nuts and using manual mode on the leveling system raise that side off the ground.
bad news getting tire in the back of truck they are heavy. Have ramp.

Take to Goodyear In AM and a few bucks will replace valve stem .Bad news will have to stop several times on way to fall rally to check torque. Good news caught it in the driveway instead of along the Ohio or Ind Tpk.

A mere 23.15 to have a quality valve stem installed by our local Goodyear store. Pocket change compared to the $$$ spent on this thing. The leveling system is great for changing tires.

Correction.. No charge for the valve stem replacement. I thought I had replaced all the OEM stems but this one was OEM. The Good year dealer in Haines City Florida also did not charge me for replacing the OEM valve stems .Our hometown dealer said the same thing the Florida dealer said that he was surprised that such a low quality valve stem would be installed on one of their top of the line tires..No charge.
