Adding a Quick Release Air Fitting



Adding a Quick Release Air Fitting on the Rear of Your Cab



Capping and Tapping the Trailer Transfer Valve

Some may choose to remove the gladhands used for trailer air brake connection.  While removing them, that would be a good time to add some quick disconnects to have utility air pressure available for various uses.

From 5th_Wheeler (Jon):
This is the trailer protection valve.





After removing the trailer air lines from the air protection valve I used two 1/2" NPT brass plugs to seal the valve openings.  When I have a custom bed built I'll have several Quick Disconnect fittings installed in a couple locations around the bed and one under the hood to air up tires and such..




For those of you that want to install a 1/4" or 3/8" quick release female air fitting for your tire inflation air hose you should install it where the upper 1/2" brass plug is located in this picture.
