dually valve stems

Anybody have the Dually valve stems installed in the Santa Clara Valley area? I've tried The Ford Store in Morgan Hill, Ca who refered me to Salinas Valley Ford who never got back to me. I'm reluctant to go to CW because of reviews. Fairly new MH, 2012 Newmar Baystar. Any suggestions?
Thanks Jim

Jim, I have the Steel Flex Extensions from CW for about a year now and have no problems. Easy to install and so far, (knock on wood) they are doing the job. I am a fanatic for checking tire pressure and these make that chore a lot easier.

Hello dennis45,
I too have the add-on valve extenders. With the extensions and tpms hanging off the edge of the wheel I feel the possiblity of something going wrong is inevitable.

You should not need a Ford dealer. Any tire installer with the equipment for large tires can install them in a few minutes - of course you will have to pay a fee for their time.

There's all kinds of valve stem extenders. My rig has flexible stainless steel braded hoses held in place by a spring. I wouldn't recommend them. Adding air to the outer tire is a real PITA. I eventually plan on installing something different. Google RV dual tire inflators or RV dual tire equalizers and you'll see what I mean. I'm thinking of getting these : Crossfire Dual Tire Pressure Equalization System,100 PSI,one per pkg. (CF100STABT) : Amazon.com : Automotive

I don't trust CW to install anything properly. They take too many shortcuts.

BTW, We're in the Santa Teresa (i.e, IBM) neighborhood.

I have the crossfire system. Relatively easy to install and works as advertized. I put the TPMS on the crossfire. I bought it from Amazon although there may be a supplier that advertizes with IRV2..
A similar system is the 'Cats Eye' . Works about the same way with a different indicator

Dually valves can be installed by any tire shop that has the equipment to handle your size tire. They are just a valve stem basically. I have them and like them, they cost more than other solutions but they are a fine product.
