Braided Air Lines

I was at Camping World today to pick up braided air lines for the outside rear tires of my motorhome. I want to make it easier to add air to the outside tires. Although the dual head air chuck does work with my current setup, it has to be at the right angle to properly add air to the tire.

Reading the packaging for the braided air lines, it states for the inside rear tires. Is it okay to use braided air lines for the outside rear tires? If so, is there anything to be aware of?

I would not of giving this issue a second thought if I did not read the above statement on the packaging.

Thanks
John

unless braided lines cannot be bent like rubber lines can be I cannot think of anything that would be a problem.

On my rear tires the braided valve extenders are different at the valve connection. The inner tire extender comes staight out off the valve. The outer tire extender has a sharp angle at the valve so the braided extension has less bending to make it out the wheel openning.
If your extender is straight it is for the inner dully. If it has a bent hook like end then it will be for the outer duel. IMHO

I use these. You purchase them for the tire pressure you use. Every time I stop for gas, I look at them and know I am OK.

Amazon.com: Crossfire Dual Tire Pressure Equalization System, 95 PSI, one per pkg. (CF95STABT): Automotive
So if one of the duals develops a leak it takes the other down with it?

I looked into these. Don't really like the ideal or design. Thanks for the input.

There is a check valve that prevents this from happening.

That it's indeed view they work. I have used then for almost 2 years without issue. I see more and more commercial trailers using them now.

Are they compatible with a TPMS? It would seem that with the check valve to cut off pressure loss to the remaining tire it might not signal the sensor.

Can you please explain how you think "brained lines" on your outside duals is going to make it easier to add air to those tires?
I just don't get it.
Thanks

The tpms should signal a 10psi lose in that tire pair. I believe that is the cut off level. Losing 10psi should not affect the good tire but should alert you to a problem

Sure Mel... As I stated in my original post, "Although the dual head air chuck does work with my current setup, it has to be at the right angle to properly add air to the tire."

If I do not get the chuck at the right angle, I lose more air then I get into the tire. I am looking for a more effective way, hence the braided lines (or possibly the metal angle valve connectors) where the air valve will be more accessible.

Thanks
John
