Looking for a solution to installing a TPMS sensor on inside dual tires.
Seems there are problems with using extensions as they vibrate loose and leak.
Anyone out there with something that working for you?

Bob

Bob, I drove a dually for 2 years (68K mi) as an every day driver. I asked the same questions as you are asking. It was a major PITA just checking the air. I still cannot believe that DRW's don't come with factory TPMS's. Now that I have a DP, it came with extensions on the back duals. I would never go w/o them again.

One of best ways is with hub mount valve stem extenders. They can be fun to get installed correctly(they require adjustment to operate properly), but once properly installed, easy access right at the hub. Most applications you cant run a hub cap, but i prefer the function over the beauty.

here is the style I have used. I used them on my 19.5 on my 2004 dually.

My 15 RAM has the pressure readouts for all 6 tires displayed on the dash. Best part it does not scream at you if you choose to run lower pressure when running solo.

I run quality tires on my TV and RV that is a big part of why I have never had a tire problem towing.

Look into the Crossfire system. It's what the big boys use.

My 2013 F350 didn't have it. I assumed it was because it isn't required on GVWR's over 10K. Interesting to hear that Ram DRW's have the pressure readout style on theirs. My 07 Chevy had that and it was very accurate and dependable. Made it that much more disappointing to not have it on the Ford DRW. My current F250 has the alarm only style and not the pressure readouts. I'm not sure why Ford has let this slip by. Maybe they have on later models.

My 2015 F450 doers not have the TPMS. I bought one of the combination air chucks, small hose, and pressure gauge. The metal extension off the hose on the one I bought is a little too long and since it's not flexible I can't get it on the inside tire. It was an expensive one also but I recently bought a different design and was able to get it to work. It's still a pain to check and inflate the inner tire. The guy at my local parts store recommended the extenders and told me they had not had any complaints or issues but that's not what I read online so I haven't tried them due to the bad reviews.

I solved the inner tire problem by searching the net for a air gauge with a straight nozzle instead of the angled ones. I just push it straight into the valve and it's over.

I had the tire shop install the long brass valve stems on the duals. They adjusted the and balanced them with the new stems and sensors. It is easy to fill them now.
