    Anyone know of a way to create a switch to inflate and deflate tires from switch pros 9100?

    I have the “sponsored by wifey air system” but it’s a switch actuated inflation and deflation process from the air manifold. I’m wanting to connect the air lines then press the SP9100 inflate to inflate and press the deflate switch to deflate.

    Video links to what I’ve found:

    Agriculture air inflation and deflation, with a CTI - central tire inflation rim

    https://youtu.be/Z06a9ffaA3U
    (Not interested in going the CTI route)

    Wound need 2 switches. One for each solonoid.

    But ya can’t use a true auto system because ya can’t put the air lines through the axles

    Correct, and you can get real fancy and do 2 regulators. One to the air up pressure, the other to air down ( if you can find the correct regulator) otherwise you’ll need to watch a gauge to know when to stop letting air out

    So run 2 switches to 2 regulators with a gauge? Because the wifey air system comes with a gauge

    I haven't known the actual weight of the heaviest loads I've pulled, and I don't do it that often, but in my limited experience I'd have to agree with that. I also don't have a brake controller, nor have the trailers had sway control that I know of (because honestly aside from a special kind of hitch I'm not sure what that is).

    Holy hell... not gonna lie... that whole system is taking one of the simplest tasks and making it super complex. I'd vote just get an indeflate and ditch that "system".

    Also valve stems in the wheels wells??? What if you go wheeling in snow and they get caked in snow and ice... or caked in mud and shit? Not to mention potential damage from rocks and shit. Good lord that system is dumb as fuck.

    The switch would control a solenoid that Leads to the regulator.

    @lambo is correct in your over complicating it. The wifey is an over glorified quad hose.

    To air down, it’s gonna take longer since your not removing the valve core.

    How are you going to keep those 4 quick disconnects clean? Granted here we have less mud but I just don't see those functioning after a trip to Moab.

    Am I high AF, or would the following tire sizes be a great choice for a taco if they existed?

    285/85R16
    285/80R17

    They’d basically be pizza cutter 35s! Width of your typical 33s but with the extra height.
