Source for valve extensions?

Anyone got a source for various length SS, or rubber, tire valve extensions. I might have to have them special made. I've found a "Ricka Valve Stem" product, but I can't find a direct contact link to the company-

My source has apparently gone bye, bye .

I've been to JC Whitney and several others- No Joy!!

Max, I've seen advertisements in Motor Home magazine and FMCA's magazine for SS valve extensions. What I did is this: Two years ago, I had all the tires replaced on my rig. The Michelin dealer who did the work is capable of most truck service as well as large RV's, so I had him install long metal valve stems on all six of my tires. It has worked out very well. I can check them easily and air up as needed. Any good truck shop should do the job.

Bob

We just replaced our original hoses. They were made by DICOR and we got them from TWEETY's. They were the exact replacement. I suspect that your's are the same, given the make & age of your RV.

WheelMasters is the other popular supplier.

Bought s/s braded extensions at an RV store. Cost $60.00 and work great.

Max,
Don't waste your time. Get the Dually Stems. No extensions needed.

Winnebago has a 6.5" valve stem extension made from a plastic like composite material. They are OE on my MH and have stayed tight and maintained pressure without any problem over the past 4 1/2 years. (Available through Lichtsinn Motors, a forum sponsor.)

I bought these Pacific Dualies about a year ago and they have worked out fine.

Lots of options. Also might want to consider the Crossfire equalization system from Dual Dynamics.

If it's just extensions a truck supply place like fleetpride will have them also.

I like and use the Dicor... I like the stand-off's for the hose. No drilling or rivets and easy to take off.
Do NOT use the airless ones...they sound great when you read the lit. but they have to be adjusted and the rubber o'rings deteriorate and you loose air.

I had them installed a few months ago. They are great.
Very easy to add air and the PressurePro sensors are very stable now.
You can see them here Dually Valve
