Default Air Up Your 'Bird From An External Source

Some 'Birds have a schrader valve attached to one of the air tanks that allows you to attach an air hose from an external source like your shop air or a portable air compressors, but sometimes you have to crawl under the coach to do this, here is a way to change that schrader valve so that you can just plug in that air hose and walk away to do other things.

If you decide to use this modification make sure that if you leave the air line connected that the air line pressure of the shop compressor does not exceed the POP OFF pressure of your 'Birds air dryer pressure relief valve on the air dryer.
