When we bought our motorhome, I took it to the shop to have new tires put on. The previous owner had installed extra long extension lines and the excess looped between the duals. The tire guys showed me how that had worn all the way to the cords of the side wall.

Needless to say, they went back on with good angled valve stems. The tire guys said they hate those extensions as, just like others here have said, they tend to leak

Dual tires without valve stem extenstions

Each to their own ways, but....
I have added good truck shop flexible valve extensions of proper length on each of my 4 MHs when I bought them. They do not get in the way of the tires or rims, and have never come loose from the valve stems.
They never leaked.
I have TPMS, so crossfire does not provide an effective service, and would only save checking 2 tires about 2x a year. But I check my tires before each move with my TST 507 screen while sipping coffee!
Happy trails

Dual tires without valve stem extenstions

The braiding is tight on the hose, and there is a neoprene gasket where it screws on to the valve stem. When tightened, you gotta work to get them loose! The braiding touches nothing if they are the proper length and set in place carefully.
I double check them after new tires are mounted.

I used those or similar on two previous motorhomes and never had a problem. The motorhome I have now has a long hard extension on the rear inner wheel and that also has not been problem. I probably have close to 200K total on those three motorhomes and will use the same or similar on my next motorhome (if there is another one - getting a little long in the tooth to get another)

I get Jo who has smaller hands and fill's the inside Dually when air is needed and I do the rest. They stay pretty close to the same pressures.
I'm a X trucker and we used a small bat and hit the inside dually's and can tell if they need air. The MH has sat since last October and one tire needed a few pounds otherwise they were fine. I still use the bat and listen.
I have Hubcaps so I have to remove them to air up when needed so I have thought about getting extensions for the front and rear outer. I changed the pins that lined up the caps with bolts so the caps can't move around.
JMO,
Tim
