I called out a tire service. It wasn't the valve extension. It was the valve itself. It wasn't tight at all. He tightened it, put air back in, and all is well.
I watched it closely for the return trip to Texas. No issue.
Just thought I'd share... watch that air!
Sorry TL but all is NOT WELL
If one of your duals was flat due to the poor valve install that means you have been operating the other tire at 100% overload.
I covered this in my post on Special Considerations
for Duals. The idea that you somehow have "fixed" the tire by putting air back in it is covered in my post on Potato Salad
You need to have the tire dismounted and inspected by a manager that works at a store run by the tire company that made your tires. I would only accept a written statement that the tire was inspected and found to be OK otherwise you may have a time-bomb on your hands.
