Hello,

I am new to RV business and experience a fustrating and dangerous problem: despite that I have installed high pressure, metal valve stems on all tires, I keep getting flat tires and in all three instances, it all came down to the valves being bad. I hate to have this happen in a remote area where help is not available or expensive. Can anyone offer any suggestions? My motorhome is a fleetwood flair, 25 ft class A.

carobone, Use the "Find" and search for valve extenders. Someone suggested heavy duty valves to refit in the stems. Apparently solved some of the extenders tendency to leak. You may find other cures.

I had the same problem while in Wisconsin last year. It cost me 368 for a new tire to replace the one that blew out when a "technician" put too much air in it. Fortunately, I had a spare. When the new tire was installed the pro technician wrench-tightened each of my metal extensions. Now I check tire pressure every I drive, even if only around the block. So far, so good. I also carry a 200# pressure air compressor. A lesson well learned.
