Now, pick a wheel and find the valve stem. Unscrew the little cap. Press the end of the gauge hard against the valve stem. Read the pressure on the slide that pops out of the other end of the gauge. Remember to put the cap back on.

Oh… Expect it to hiss a little.

Miss Maggie,
Here is a YouTube video...

They are fairly easy to listen to... Not a lot of details which might confuse.

It's that easy. I have just resisted doing it, like other things Doug always did that I pace myself into taking on, one at a time. It's the finality of it, I think. I don't want to do all those things he did. Not because I can't, but because once I do them the first time, it becomes permanent.

I need to adopt a new mantra..."Put on your big girl panties, and deal with it!"


Reading about Lauren Bacall's death, I imagine Doug's spirit waiting, tentatively, hanging back, as hers arrives and she is greeted lovingly by Bogart and others she was close to. If he can, he will slowly move forward, introduce himself, and tell her how much he enjoyed her work.....pehaps take her hand and kiss the back of it, if it feels right. If not, he will admire her from afar. He was that kind of man. Not a perfect man, but a very good man, and a genuine romantic at heart.

Doug loved all things Bogart, and could impeccably quote all the best lines. I cannot count how many times we watched Casablanca, one of the few DVD's we own.

Doug's Dad died the day before his 4th birthday, and his absence left a tremendous void. I believe he took many of his cues for how to be a good man and a gentleman from his favorite screen actors.......as he ushered at the local movie theatre when he was in high school and saw the same movies over and over and over again. Had all the characters, lines, and trivia down pat.

I'm rattling on. Have a good day.


Maggie

You're sweet! Thank you, I watched it.

I did not know where to find what psi the tires should be inflated to. Will look on the tires.

There might be a sticker on the driver's side door frame that shows the tire pressures. Mercedes does that, I think--at least they did on my Smart. Otherwise the owners' manual should have it somewhere.

Also, you're right. It's always on the sidewall of the tire somewhere.

Take those things Doug did for you one at a time.

Hi Maggie,

I just finished a message and lost it. Wish there was a way to save a draft in the forum. Lol.


Anyway the gist of my message was, it's; good to find this thread, good to see you are doing fairly well, and that hot air weighs more than cold. That last item was specific to checking out tire pressure but perhaps my message was getting a little long.


Take care,
Carol

Actually, hot air weighs less than cold. Tire pressure doesn't measure weight. Basically, it measures how hard the air inside the tire is trying to get out--we call that pressure.

According to one of those guys whose Laws I had to memorize back in high school--can't remember whether its Charles' Law or Boyle's Law--pressure increases when temperature increases.

And we're all glad that Maggie is doing so well. Her posts have been an inspiration to me, for sure.

Truthfully, my brain will not digest too much on this subject, so try not to confuse me with too much information.

What I need to do is learn where to put the gauge, how to read it, how far to inflate the tires, etc.

I think I can do that, and will get some helpful fellow camper to show me.

Thanks, folks.


Maggie
