Valve Stem Extensions

I have a 07 Winnebago 35j that has steel wheels with wheel covers. I would to find a set of valve stem extensions so i don't need a push/pull air chuck. I bought some at camping world that uses a bracket that mounts on the wheel cover hub but the cover would not go back on after i put the new hoses on. has anybody found anything that works.

What I did was buy the flexible stainless steel hoses and then mount them to a piece of aluminum flat bar (1/2"w x 1/8"t I think) which I then mounted to one of the holes in the wheel simulator (chrome hubcap looking thing) using pop rivits. Looking at the wheel, the outside dual has the screw on 135* adaptor, the rear has a short SS hose with the end secured through the aluminum flat bar. I just use my air hose direct to these fittings to air up the tires.

If I remember next time I am at the coach I will get a picture.

If you can check your tires with a push/ pull air gauge, it would be foolish to install valve extensions. It is fairly common for these extensions to allow air to escape from your tires. If you do install them, always check your tires air pressure before driving.
I have aluminum wheels, so I don't need extensions to check my air pressure. I still always check the air pressure the night before I drive. That way if I do have a low or flat tire, I will have time to fix it before taking off.

Two things. If you have rubber valve stems, don't even think of using extensions and secondly, the best way is to go to a tire shop and have the long brass stems installed.

The best extensions are straight & stainless steel or brass on steal tire valves. The inside rear should point straight out and the outside should point straight in. This means that you need a push pull tire gage and inflater or combination of both.

Mike:

What kind of length are you talking about for the inside dual wheel pointing out? Should it also be supported by a rubber grommet inserted in the steel wheel?

There is a rubber hole plug that can be used in the outer wheel to support the valve extension but I have not used any on my coach. My valve extension ends at the outside edge of hand hole of the outer wheel. It has been on without incident for over 7 years.

WOW Thanks everybody for response. I'm not really against push /pull air chuck but my inside tire has a stainless steel hose that is supported by a flimsy spring it has no support everytime I try to put air in it I have to hold the extension and the air hose.
