I considered a similar product as I found it very difficult to check the tire pressure on both the inside and outside tires - mostly due to he wheel simulator. Many people report good results but many do not. Instead I purchased longer, rigid metal valve stems. Cost $110 for the set of four (Online from Your Tire Shop in CA) and an additional $100 to have a local tire shop install them. Expensive, but so far they are working great. Good luck!

Appreciate the info, checked them out, will definitely consider getting a set...my question is did you take it to RV dealer or semi truck repair /tire shop...my local RV dealer is not to helpful when I talked to them about checking tire pressure or installing extenders...my next move will be to talk to semi truck repair shop....

I have a local Goodyear store that does truck tires and they were happy to do mine in about an hour and a half. He originally told me he'd charge me $80 when I stopped in one day to ask about it. When I actually went in a couple of weeks later to have it done he charged $100. It still seemed reasonable so I didn't say anything. I'm very pleased. Pressures are easier to check now than on my cars. Only downside is you can't easily rotate tires "properly". About the best you can do is swap sides. You might also consider a TPMS system as well. It makes for a lot of money but gave me a lot of peace of mind. I'd already purchased my TPMS when I had the new valves installed so mine have external sensors. I wonder I'd you could get internal ones like most cars have as they'd be more secure and convenient.
