Dually Air Valve Stem Extenders - Looking for Recommendations

My Bounder has some extenders installed but they are too short for my taste. They barely stick through the trim ring so that it's a hassle to get an air chuck on them. I'm also considering the 90 degree bent extenders for the outside dually's - seems they would make life easier too.

Looking at Summit Racing and they have some extenders that are secured to a lug nut instead of the spring trim ring clip. That seems to me a better design. Am I wrong?

What's your opinion about the bent extenders? Has anyone had any problems using them?

What's your favorite extenders?

Thanks everyone.

Dave

I had the DuallyValve solid valve stems installed when I had new tires put on three years ago. I wish I had had it done when I bought the motor home instead of waiting. They make it so much easier to add and check air.
These are not extenders but new valve stems the right length.

Thanks. I especially like that they specifically mention that screw on TPMS systems work with their extenders.

X2 I just had new 22.5s installed on the rear duals. I have had a few slow leaks with the braided flex lines, so I had new solids installed as well. I feel better already.

I've also been considering this. A local Les Schwab dealer told me he gets RVs in all the time and most of the leak problems come from extenders. Now maybe he said this because he was out of the extender product I was seeking. So I'm looking at better air fillers with long stems and straight chucks (not the front angle type that won't reach the inner dually). I hope this makes it easy to check and fill the inner dually without having to install stems.

One thing I didn't mention about The DuallValve solid stems is that they furnish a rubber stabilizer for the hand hole to hold the rear dually stem solid. If you have tire pressure sensors (I do) it keeps them from bouncing around.

I have used two different kinds of extenders had trouble with flat tires on both kinds. I check my tire pressure the hard way now. No more extenders for me. And yes I used the ones that are part of the whole valve (no screw ons)

I removed the braided extenders and had the DuallyValve solid stems installed. Much better with the TPMS sensors now. I just wish the dealer would have put them from the beginning.
