The sanitary part comes in where you just have one inlet feed from your tanks to all four valves. And the combined single exhaust port is nice too since it was easy for me to run my dump line down and under the truck for quietness and cleanliness.

Were did you get your fittings from?

Re: Who is running manual valves?

I think zipper is looking for the ptc fittings that TX used behind the valve block.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

Newfisher do you have any videos of it in action? How loud was the dump inside the truck since you cant run a exhaust with those valves.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

I don't have a video of the truck,it was sold earlier this year. I am still in contact with the owner. let me see if he can take one?
4-5 seconds down and 4-5 up. The exhaust noise out the backside wasn't obnoxious. It shoots under the dash and where you sit, you are not bothered by it.
I have a V2 system now and If I do another manual system I would do the same set up from Borris. The Larry's paddles look good, but a little large to find a spot for. I didn't want to cut a hole in the dash of the 46 nor did I want the gauge /paddle pod to hang below it so I went with the V2. Everything is displayed on the screen and can tuck it away if I want. It was only a few hundred bux more than a manual set up if you search.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

I just came up with another question. If I decide to run the 1/4 line with the slower speeds is it going to be unecessary to have 2 compressors? I was going to buy 2 of the viar 444c's and a 5 gallon tank.

I would still do 2 compressors. The amount of air to refill the bags after deflation will have a single compressor running much harder.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

Now I have a question when using manual valves running two compressors one tank how far away can the compressors be mounted from the tank? Say tank on one side of frame and compressors on the other. Would that effect speed?

Negligible most likely.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

2 comps and a 5g would be perfect for 1/4 line. Im running a single comp now and if you dump and refill twice, the comp runs a while. With 2 that cycle would be much quicker.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

Newfisher are you running 1, 1/4 line from the tank to the valves and then splitting it somehow?

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier.

I bought them, along with a ton of other stuff from tho robros.com

I had to put that space in his website name due to board politics. Apparently there is bad blood between them and the admin here so when you type his website on here it gets censored.

I know nothing about the feud that caused it, but he (Jason Thorbec ke) did me very right on all of my orders. I'm a very loyal customer to them.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

Yes, they're push to connect.

Quality seems good. I used them throughout the system and I can set pressures and the entire system holds exact pressure for weeks without leaking off.

Re: Who is running manual valves?

Any updates on those of you running the FourPlay Valve setup? Thinking about ordering and haven't been able to find much in the way of reviews.
