I am sure this has been discussed before, but looking for lower priced extensions for the valves on my rear tires. I thought the rig came with them but they did not... suggestions on something that will give me a little more access to check pressure and fill tires?
Buy a truckers air gauge, it has a straight and a back angled head, goes to 150lbs. Then buy same style air chuck. Extensions are a pain and another source for leaks. Next time you get tires, have long stems installed on the duals.
You could consider Cat's Eyes as a way to monitor tire pressure and have a single point for testing air pressure. And, if necessary, a single point of adding air to both tires simultaneously. We have owned two MH and we have added Cat's Eyes to each. It is a simple installation and offers a quick visual check for proper air pressure. Something worth reviewing.
I actually looked into these tire equalizing systems, and i liked the crossfire system better than Cats Eye because crossfire displays both over pressure and under pressure. I bought the crossfire
I could not figure a great way to mount them with my wheel simulators.
They'd be much better on larger class A sized tires I think..... or wheels without simulators
I had the braided hose extensions from the factory on my inner duals, but had lots of problems with them.
I ended up buying rigid extensions and have been much happier. 5-1/2 inch long worked for me.
bought the full rubber flange supports form duallyvalve and extensions form ebay.
I'd like the idea of dually valve stems better, but they require de-mounting the tires
On my Sprinter Citation I've been through rigid screw on and braided extensions with nothing but problems. I finally spent the money for Dually Valves all around with TPMs. I've put well over 30,000 miles on mine now with no problems and a lot of peace of mind on the road. The only problem is finding a competent and trustworthy tire shop to do the installation with particular attention to the correct tightness and absolutely centering the extensions through all of the rim holes. If they touch a side of a rim hole, they will wear thru. But, if you are a devotee of complicated tire rotation, Dually Valves are not for you.
