Greetings all: I'm dealing with an ongoing problem with leaking valve stem extensions on my dual rears on my 2000 Minnie Winnie. I've had 2 flats in the last year, both from the leaking extension hoses/fittings. The last time was with my brand new tires that were just installed so I've finally had the extensions removed. Those were brand new extensions too. Now I can't really check my rear tire pressures without removing the outside duals. I've seen solid brass extended valve stems, not extensions, for larger Class A tires but nothing for my 16' tires. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks,
FB in Vt.

yes...contact "Tireman" or Borg...there is also another company that comes up when you search the forums, so......

Do a search for valve stem extensions...you'll get lots of peoples posts about them.

I ordered and had installed the ones from the Tireman. Love em...takes 5 minutes to check all 6 tires. Used to take half hour because the inside dual stem always got hung up between the tires.

They're not cheap, but I think they're worth every penny.

We are able to check our duals with a truck type guage and fill with a truck inflater. You may want to build a connector that will attach to a passenger car hose for the inflater. We carry a small air compressor that works well.

Fixedblade - Stop using extensions and replace the mostly rubber stems with longer bent shape steel ones.

I have posted this before - I called a tire shop that sells to large trucks - the so called "18 wheelers". I asked them for advice. They stock numerous (I later saw the bins) steel and brass valve stems, both chromed and not chromed. All different shapes and lengths. Drove my RV to the shop "Midwest Tire". They pulled all 6 wheels "broke the bead" on one side of each rim to replace with their stems (cost $1.89 each). They knew exactly which ones to use. They did a fine tuning of each stem by slight bending with the box of a "box end" wrench. Total cost out the door - less than $75. I believe it was about $12 for the stems and $10 each for labor to install. No tax on labor in this state.

I have these on my valve stems as supplied by Winnebago. I can check/fill the rears with a dually chuck no problem.

www.sixrobblees.com. Ask for Lindsay in sales. ask for Dually Valve Stems. I have these and have not had to add any air, ever, since installation.

I just installed the "Borgs" from Sixrobbies and love them. Price has gone up recently and a set runs about $96 plus shipping. Worth every dime!
