Lemjim,

The straight extension I use came with a kit that I bought at a truck stop many years ago. The brand name is "Schrader". I still see them in truck stops. I still have the complete kit, but alas, there are no part numbers left that I can find.

Alaskan,

Thanks for the info. on tire checking equip. Will start looking for the kit, not a real fan of the extenders even though I have used them for a long time.

bought two for the front and two for the back at Camping World oh gee, I guess in April on the way back from Atlanta. I had been trying to put air in the right front at Flying J just east of there and broke the stupid valve stem, had to call roadside assistance and watch TV in the parking lot till they showed and replaced it.

Of the 4 extenders, only 1 leaked, right rear dualie. Had to take it off, will try another set next week when I hit the road again.

I guess a 25% failure rate is on par with what the RV industry in general shoots for. Boy are they in for a rude awakening [emoticon]

Can't wait till Honda starts making RV's.

I put a pair of wire braid covered extenders on. I had to modify the thru wheel supports to fit my Aluminum wheels. They work fine.

I joined the crowd of dissatified extender owners this past week. I have steel valve stems on the front but rubber on the duals. Does anyone know of a source for steel valve stems, including 135 deg. ones for the outside dual and a long one for the innner? I have seen them on the big trucks.

First off Kayo, are you sure your front valve stems are steel and not plated brass? At any rate, most any truck tire shop should normally have various types & sizes. Might give them a try... Happy Motoring, Butch - Nancy Lake, Alaska
