    Flying J and Pilot have them on sale right now....16.99.
    Usually 25 bucks.

    Some trucks use blue line and some black...just look for it behind the seat coming up through the floor.
    No need to take any of the seat apart.

    Just installed mine and didn’t think about draining the air tank first. Now my tanks are still full of air but I got no air going to the seat. WTH???

    This is irritating. I took off the blowgun and reinstalled the original connection. Seats working again. If I reinstall the blowgun I get no air again guess I’m just gonna go get a glad hand air hose to use instead.

    Blow through the T if it is not somehow stopped up, it is impossible for it to keep your seat from working.

    I purchased the blow gun at a pilot, I installed it on my Freightliner Acadia simple installation and I have air leaks on both hoses that attached to the T, I took them off I put them back on I made sure they were tight and the hoses are leaking right where they screw onto the t,, any idea ??

    I bought the air gun at a pilot I installed it easy installation and sure enough the hoses where they bolt onto the T they started leaking air on both sides I took them off put them back on and they keep on leaking so I took the whole thing apart and put it back the way it was, any idea as to why they were leaking air and they were tighten with the fittings and everything, it’s kind of hard to make a mistake.

    The best way to fix it is to return it and get your money back.
    I bought one myself a couple of months back and like you, could not stop the air leaks. I could make it better with thread tape, but not by much.

    I'm pretty sure the main culprit is that the hose has too small of an outside diameter for the fittings. The air gun itself is also exceptionally poor quality, so of course it leaks as well.

    The Roadpro brand is really hit or miss. If you absolutely need to buy any Roadpro widget, make sure you keep the receipt handy.
