When I google "smartened futon", it takes me right back here...

It is a unique invention, for sure!

A smartened futon connects to your electronic device via Bluetooth. When you fail to respond to the Netflix prompt, "Are you still watching?" it automatically folds down to bed mode.

Eliminates stiff necks and sore backs.
Man oh man, a guy makes just one wee error. My biggest mistake obviously was not proofing it before it was caught.

I woulda been all over it as well.

Ooh, ooh! I definitely want that!

Being that it incorporates so much leading-edge tech, I will be looking for one with a "new every two" plan!

1/8" pipe size is measured on the inside diameter. So it is bigger than 1/8" on the outside.

Hope this helps any confusion.

But not the test ports... which was what was originally asked.

Yep. Trailers often have either a 1/2" black iron main gas pipe or a 1/2" copper tube main line. The 3/8" copper tube "drops" feed each appliance. Gas test ports are typically located on the gas valve and are 1/8" pipe. This is a pipe thread plug, usually with a socket head drive and about 3/8" in diameter. 1/8" pipe is about 3/8" OD.

The manometer is connected with a 1/8" pipe X 3/8" tube barbed fitting that is screwed into the port where the plug was removed. Then a 3/8" ID rubber hose connects to the gauge. Once the connection is made, start the appliance and measure the gas pressure while the appliance is running.
