The control panel as viewed from the rear of the coach, mounted to the hitch receiver. The user now has the option of airing up with a male D-type connector (yet to be installed) inserted into the mini control valve, or one of the Schrader valves. The other Schrader valve can be used to check tire pressure of all tires with a tire pressure gauge. To release pressure from all tires, simply open the mini control valve.
Several different mounting brackets are available to suit a variety of applications ranging from the basic to the sophisticated. Here, the assembly of a basic control panel is underway; in the foreground are two Schrader inflation valves with the push-to-connect tubing adapters installed, and a mini control valve, which will be fitted with a male D-type connector in a later step.
