Valve Stem Extenders

I own a 2001 Jayco Eagle, 31 ft, on a Ford chassis with a V450. I need to add valve stem extenders both front and rear. I have surfed different parts vendors only to be confused. I see products for 16 - 19.5 inches...22 inches...45 deg...135 deg...can anyone point me in the right direction?

If you are going to get metal extenders installed then you need to go to a truck tire place and they can install what is needed. Or you can purchase flexible extenders on your current valve stems, this is what I used, http://smile.amazon.com/Slime-20140-...ble+valve+stem

They are working great, no more than normal air loss, so I know they are not leaking.

I've been using Link Cat's Eye monitor/equalizers, with the included SS braided hoses, on my rear dually tires for 12 years, (over 10k miles):
Cat's EyeŽ - Link

Crossfires are a similar product:
Crossfire - Dual Dynamics

I just took my flexible extenders off because I could not put any air in my tires. So now I take the SS hubcap off and check them. It is less hassle than playing with those flexible extenders. Maybe I should try the non flexible type.

I have the crossfire setup on my rear tires, works great and easy to fill. It balances the pressure between the two tires. It also has a real easy visual check window to show if pressure is low or high.

It uses the flexible stainless braided hoses to connect to the valve stems.

Another 'Crossfire' user here - I'm on my 5th year and no problems.
I got mine from Meyers Tire at: Crossfire Dual Tire Pressure Equalizer, 110 psi
Another plus when using Crossfire or Cat's Eye is that you only need one tire pressure sensor for each dual tire.

When you use / install the cross fires did you have the finish hub cap on your wheels? We have a chrome liner / hub cap on a Greyhwak. - c 31 FK. With the liner off the valve stems are much easier to access and I don't cut my fingers checking the tire pressure.

My chrome liners/hub caps are finished. The holes in the chrome liner were too small to provide easy access to check tire pressure, so I went with the Crossfire (and the TST TPMS to monitor). My 5th year and no regrets.
P.S. The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) provides me with peace of mind while rolling down the road.

X?? For Crossfires! In my case the braided line which passes through the front wheel to the inside tire rubbing. I used a length of vinyl tube (3/8 dia i think) which i split and put over the entire braided line. I used clear GOOP at both ends to seal up the split. I installed on all the braided lines to balance the look. I have had this on for over a year and almost 20k miles with no issue
