Valve stem extenders

Whatís the best valve stem extenders? Especially for the rear duals. Do these things affect wheel balance?

after a lot of frustration and trying different types I took mine off. Happy I did.

Any not bottom of the barrel brand will do.
There's no technology that makes one better than the other except for material.

Agree with Duckface, if you can find "made in USA" spend the extra bucks and go for quality. The last thing you want is a tire to deflate, if it's on the rears you may not know it until the tire is damaged beyond repair and if it is on the front it could be much worse.

Valve Stems

I bit the bullet and had "Dually Valves" installed on the rear axle wheels. Requires that the tire be removed and dismounted. Worth the piece of mind and no leaks.

I'm going to be installing the Cross-Fire System on my new 2020 Magnitude and I am getting the option to install my TPMS.

That being said, I recommend this one. It is a bit pricey but I ordered one to replace a defective one from the factory.

I was extremely impressed with the design, construction and the quality.

Iíve done that on three motorhomes now and never had a problem. It can run as much as $300 but it seems like the ultimate solution. I canít quite fathom why they donít come this way in the first place. That said, my current coach came with stainless steel extenders and Iíve not gotten around to replacing them. It has clips to support the end in the outer wheel hole but they still touch the wheel and Iím actually rather concerned about their long term use. Happy travels!
