Valve Extenders

Looking for advice on quality valve extenders for rear tires on my sunseeker. Inside dually straight extender holds air well but is too short and I have to remove hubcap to check air and fill. Outside dually seems to loose air too often after trips (guessing angle extenders are coming loose). Any suggestions?

I had Borg valves installed. It requires taking the wheels off to remount the valves. The are not extenders but an upgrade.

There are several things to consider when trying to find suitable valve extenders so one can access, to check and fill the tires. First, the more connections the more potential places for air to leak. If you have a valve stem and you connect another one to loop it around and out through the hub cap you've created another potential leaking joint. For the inside rear tire using one of those long flexible hosed valves is OK but make sure it's secured so it won't flop around. That's where those black triangle rubber things come into play.

I was in a big tire truck shop having my MH tire checked. They had some very nice solid metal extender valve stems with several lengths and shapes that I could have gotten but didn't. I may go back.

I use the curved extenders but when I installed them I used blue lock tight so they will tend not to come loose.

One may not want to spend $20 - $30 a tire for quality valves and extenders but one leak and a ruined tire will cost a lot more.

I could not get air to either rear tire due to really short valve stems, no matter what air chuck I used. Didn't want to use extenders, so I went with the Tire Man Dually Kit. Piece of cake now.

I got tired of spending money and fighting it and bought a good inflator and a cheap nut driver to get the inside caps off and on

leave the hubcaps home. Learn how to check/add air yourself- simple is better when it comes to tire inflation

Good Luck

I had them installed when I bought new rubber last summer and they make it so easy to check pressures and add air. Was a great investment and time saver.

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 dont recall the maker and they are not labeled. But they were not cheap, neigborhood of $50+ per pair. Top shelf stuff at a truck shop that truckers there reccomended.
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 removed my extenders because one of them would not let air into the tire. I bought a nice hub cap remover wrench now and just remove the caps which is not big deal.
