Thor’s Lightning Air Systems Instructions/How-To

Thank you for purchasing a Thor’s Lightning Air System. We pride ourselves on the fact the Thor’s Lightning Air System is easy to use. 

Deflation Instructions:

Step 1: Un-pack hoses. There are two long hose sections, one for each side of the vehicle. There is a manifold equipped with two quick-disconnect couplers for the two long hose sections. Orient the hoses so the manifold is accessible for your air source.

Step 2: Connect the hose to the manifold via the quick-disconnect couplers (if needed). Make sure the air-valve (black handle) is parallel to the ground (this closes the valve).

Step 3: Connect long hose sections to the vehicle tire valve-stems using the quick disconnect tire chucks. Make sure there’s no kinks in the hose line. 

Step 4: After connecting the long hose sections to all tires that need to be deflated, open the air-valve by turning the black handle to perpendicular to the ground. Close the valve and check the digital air pressure gauge to see what air pressure the tires are currently at. Open and close the valve as needed until the desired air pressure is reached. 

Step 5: Leave Air System connected to all 4 tires for approximately 10-15 seconds with the valve in the closed position- this allows for all 4 tires to equalize their pressure. 

Inflation Instructions:

Step 1: Un-pack hoses. There are two long hose sections, one for each side of the vehicle. There is a manifold equipped with two quick-disconnect couplers for the two long hose sections. Orient the hoses so the manifold is accessible for your air source.

Step 2: Connect the hose to the manifold via the quick-disconnect couplers (if needed). Make sure the air-valve (black handle) is parallel to the ground (this closes the valve).

Step 3: Connect long hose sections to the vehicle tire valve-stems using the quick disconnect tire chucks. Make sure there’s no kinks in the hose line. 

Step 4: Connect coupler on manifold to air source. Note: if you are using a Maxi-Trac or Viair system, you will need the optional Thor’s Lightning Air System coupler. Once coupler is connected to air source, open the air-valve by turning the black handle to perpendicular to the ground. Failure to open the air-valve may cause the air source to fail due to back pressure. 

Step 5: Turn on the air source. Turn off the air source and check the digital air pressure gauge to see what air pressure the tires are currently at. Turn on and off the air source as needed until the desired air pressure is reached. 

Step 6: Leave Air System connected to all 4 tires for approximately 10-15 seconds with the valve in the closed position- this allows for all 4 tires to equalize their pressure.
