Oh no Dave, I meant on-board air as in the compressor and outlets on the front and rear bumpers. My air conditioning setup has only been used once. If it's hot enough to need it I probably ain't going camping!

I wondered considering how hot it gets there are in your area... or is that just humidity. Either or, I avoid both.

I'm curious about the caster shims. Do they help preventing the van from "wandering"? Or just help keep it aligned. My Van wanders less than before I had Quad Van 4x4 installed, but still more than I like. It is also worse now with Michelin ATs than it was with BFG ATs, but after 2 tread separations on 2 successive sets of BFGs in under 30k, I had to give up on them.

John at Quadvan set me up with Goodyear Wranglers (told him we like driving on beaches [Outerbanks, NC, Texas from Corpus Cristi to just before Galveston, Cali etc...] and he stated that he did too and he chose Wranglers b/c you can easily air down to 15psi for beach driving and his sets always are pretty quiet for off road tires, though he said they were a little softer (rubber) than others and would need to be replaced 10-20k before others...but "Who doesn't love new rubber on their ride?" is what he said lolol, true....we are now on second set...got 50k on last and probably could have driven longer on them. BUT, we have NO WONDERING! They hold their balance well!
