Jim O’Briant of OvernightRVparking.com says that yes, it’s okay to stay at some truck stops, which he names. But there are ways to do it and ways not to do it, which he explains. The photo of the Calgary, AB, truckstop is by Paul Jerry. Thanks to Jim O’Briant for sharing this information.

A look at the movements and states of operation of the air brake relay.
Relays are fitted to an air braking system for larger vehicles to speed up the application and release of the brakes, minimising brake lag, which is the time it takes between the driver operating the controls (park brake/foot brake valve) and the action actually happening at the brakes.

Trailer-Aid is the fast, safe and easy way to change a trailer’s flat tire. Made from lightweight super strong polymer, Trailer-Aid is easy to travel with and makes changing your trailer tire simple, even if you are alone.
I suggest you keep one can of Quick Spair in the car trunk for emergencies. Beats using a jackstand to change spare tire when in a bind. Fixes flats on the spot, seals punctures and inflates in seconds. Cleans up easily with water. You can find Quick Spair at Amazon (affiliate link):
Yep it worked, a can of Quick Spair tire inflator & sealer fixed a pinhole size puncture in my tire. I spray the whole can into the tire, then drive slowly to distribute the slimy sealing sealant inside the tire. I bought this 20 oz. can of Quick Spair Inflator & Sealer at Walmart. Kept it in my trunk for emergency flat. Low and behold this day I needed it. Be prepared for emergencies with Slime Quick Spair Tire Sealant. Quick Spair instantly seals the puncture and re inflates the tire to get you back on the road quickly and safely. It’s non flammable and free of carcinogens. Slime Quick Spair Tire Sealant instantly seals punctures, re-inflates tire, TPMS-safe.
To use Quick Spair, simply remove the valve cap, attach the hose and press the green button. In just seconds, the puncture is sealed and the tire is inflated. Quick Spair is non-flammable and cleans out of the tire with water, making a professional repair possible. Then it’s important to put a mile or two on the vehicle at a slow speed, to spread the slime internally.
