    Are we talking t813 or t815? On the 813 there is a connector on the air pressure regulator at the right side of the rear bumper. I'm not sure if you can fill the truck using that connection though, I recall there is a one-way valve in there.

    Your best option would be to use the trailer gladhand on the front bumper, if you don't have the right adapter just unscrew the gladhand entirely (there's a valve behind the bumper to close it anyway). The thread is M22x1.5 I think. It's important to use the front trailer air coupling, not the rear: The front one is connected to the main air tank and the whole system, the rear connects to the 3-way air brake valve with a one-way connector, it will never fill the system.

    Its a 813. I have tried all the trailer connections. I have 3 connections one the rear of the truck.One is amilitary and I dont have the right connectin for that. One (yellow) dosent happen anything (the brake outlet) and one red if I use that I will fill the rear tanks. Then I have brakes but cant use the clutch before thr trucks air pump gets up the pressure.
    Have tried the front to doesnt happen any thing more then going out air some were under the truck. Havent seen any valve at the front connection but havent look to hard.Was in little hurry. Will take a look tomorrow.

    Regards
    Henrik

    Yeah, the 3 connectors at the rear wont work: Yellow (was actually blue on mine) is brake command, red is brake supply with the one-way valve, and the 3rd one (mounted slightly lower) is for connecting single-hose trailers (an old system).

    For the front connections, directly behind the front bumper each has a manual valve which you need to open first.

    I can comment a bit on these filling devices: I have not used the one on my Tatra yet (I just put in new reg and dryer) but on the unimogs (at least the high pressure running ones (18bar) The filling hose needs to be connected when the system is at low pressure say less than 4 bar. I haven't studied the Tatra manual that extensively but looking at the way the port on the regulator is covered with a rubber dust guard..I would say that is where the tire filling hose connects. So if you are up at 8 or 9 bar (with engine off) bleed off or fan brakes to get air pressure down low-then connect filler hose. It should work.
    HTH
    Ach-see your note about switched reg-bugger. U are across the pond so getting the stock regulator back in should be easy. Those things are cheap too-probably no more than 30 or 40 Euro.

    I will have to follow your cabin building Henrik; I am awaiting Zeppelin FM2 for the rear of my 815 so I always like to see how other people outfit their campers. Thanks for the pictures.
