Valve Stems

I am fairly new to this forum and need some advise. I have an 08 Dolphin with Alcoa rims on my wheels. The duallys have a steel wheel inside and rubber valve extenders passing into a rubber grommet in the hole of the ouside wheel. I have read the stories about rubber valve extenders and need to fix the problem. I purchased Cat Eye pressure equalization system and want to install while fixing. Do I just remove the rubber extender and go all the way to the inner valve stem with the Cat Eye stainless hose or? My wheels are 22.5 with Michelin 235 80/r22.5 XRV tires. Any advise is greattly appreciated

Are you sure you want to do this? Better to have one flat tire than two. You can travel on one at less speed and get help. I have a set of duals on my coach and recently had a tire puncture while on the road--when checking the tires next morning found one flat! I traveled a short distance on one tire, to a repair center for repair.

This system does not allow both tires to go flat at once. If one tire has a leak it isolates each tire seperately and will show you a pressure problem at a glance.

Duke is right, the cross fires won't allow both tires to go flat. I had a set installed today, had them on my last motorhome and I wouldn't be without them. Before I installed them on my last mh, I lost a rear inside tire to underinflation.
