I need an inflator that has an extension to reach my dually tires. My slime brand inflator has the screw on valve so I have no way to connect any extension. I don’t mind changing brands just need something that works.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Nope not long enough plus no way to connect as my fingers can’t get thru the hub to snap down the connector. That type will only work on exposed tire valve.

OK.
What about sourcing a double male 1/4" connector (or whatever the tire valve diameter is?)

and one of these?

Do you have dual wheel valve extensions? My duals were extremely difficult to get the air chuck to seat on the valve stem with extensions. I can not attach a link for some reason. Do a search for valve stem extensions.
My inflator also has a chuck that was made for inflating truck tires with a long stem. Never had a problem. A high end compressor is also much faster than a WalMart compressor and will last much longer. I personally carry a Viair compressor. Not cheap but has worked well for 10 years, mostly on other people's tires.

That’s the plan a 12 inch extension will work wonders just hoping the 1/4 x 1/4 connector works. My compressor is 110 volt only. I know that the battery clamp and the plug in cigarette lighter inflators don’t have the power I need. I simple started my generator plugged in my extension cord and it worked great.

I think this is the best inflator and accessories I’ve ever had. The compressor is auto-shutoff, meaning you can use closed air chucks just like a real compressor, and it will shutoff when the hose pressurizes to the cutoff pressure. The dually extension is very well designed, and is all I use to inflate my truck tires. It comes with enough hose to reach your trailer tires as well. Yeah, it’s not cheap. Buy once, cry once.

Maybe wrap the male/male connector with pipe dope or teflon tape, to add some extra sealing to the fittings. Should work, and a lot less expensive then a new inflator system.
