thank you for the comment. I have valve extentions and i would need to purchase off center grommets to keep the long valve extention in place.
However i was also advised to get the "cat eye" and then ohters started to recomment the "cross fire" i really do not know what the best system is? thank you

thanks again...i see the dually valve looks like it is installed when the tire is removed from the rim. I am not ready for that. I have valve extensions and will need rubber grommets for off center.
the dually valve extension does look better since it replaces the the entire valve. It was suggested to me to look into the " Cat Eye" setup and then others replied about the " Cross Fire " setup....so now i am looking at 3 different choices at this time ( other than just using my valve extensions.

What is the price for the "Cross Fire"? The "Cat Eye"?

You can Google "Crossfire" and come up with a price. I had mine installed by a Mobile RV Tech at a motorhome rally.

See the website: Crossfire

I went from hoses to long dually valve stems and couldn't be happier.

Why did I take the hoses off? Well, I had a flat on an inner tire, and discovered the the host going to the outboard tire had frozen on the valve stem and literally ended up tear it out (leaving me with two flats). Got everything fixed up, but decided I wanted a system that allows both wheels to be pulled without any "disassembly" so if there's an issue you can deal with it with reasonable access rather than jammed in between both tires on the axle.

I had initially considered the crossfire system but elected to go with the borg tire dually valves with TPMS system. I have 19.5 inch tires and was not sure what my final pressure will end up being (depending on load and ride conditions). The crossfires are specifically set for one fixed pressure and can not be changed. So if you elect to drop your pressure for a better ride in accordance with the tire manufacturer's specs, your crossfire will indicate incorrect pressure. Of course, you could simply ignore the built in indicators and use the TPMS instead.

Furthermore, I was concerned about attaching this extra equipment to my hubcaps. Would it hold? would it affect the balance of the tires?

Finally, like all valve extensions, they are probably more prone to failure. I like having short valve stems that are easily accessible for maintenance.

I've been running Crossfires for about 4 years. They have not moved a thousandth of an inch. Balance appears to be unaffected.

I have had to replace the O-rings where the stems plug into the valve body but this is basically my fault since I don't run the air through a dryer. New O rings holding well now for just about 2 years. The stems themselves appear to be doing well.
