Airing Up Rear Duals - got to be a better way?

Putting air in the rear duals on my 31' Class C is a chore. I need to invent auto airing tires, self clamping valve stem couplers or something. What an evolution. I've got to be doing it the hard way.

The best east way is with solid metal valve stems that go out to where you need them, so you can just air em up.
Problem with this is most ford chassis RV's use 6 identical wheels, and once you put those valve stems on, you have 3 different pairs.

Most common way is with the flexible steel braided extenders. These aren't the most reliable things on the planet, but sometimes they work.

Why do you need to add air?

I'd feeling really lucky. We bought the Knight last march, screwed on some tpms sensors (on the extedners it came with) and have never had to add any air.
I probably just jinxed myself.

Note they will read very low when it's cold outside, they come right up to pressure after driving a few miles.

Look at Dually Valves. They are replacement stems (metal) that put all the valve openings on the outer side of the tires and easy to get to. http://yourtireshopsupply.com/catego...lly-valve-kits

I bought a set of Dually Valvestems for my father for his Ford class C. Not cheap, but very user friendly! Dad is 85yrs young, helps him out a lot. If you call, know if your wheel hand holes are round or oval because they will ask.

Go to a truck part house and order a set of crossfires. Tell them how much pressure you carry in your tires and all you have to do is look at the attached guage and at a glance, you know if the pressure is right. They also keep the pressure in duals equal.
