TPMS

I know that there is a lot of opinions on TPMS some like some donít, I fell into the group that like them. So, I wanted to let everyone know that the TST TPMS paid for itself yesterday, after finally clearing the Dallas traffic we got a warning of low tire, I pulled into the first area that I could check it out. I found that the air was leaking from the valve stem extension. I removed it an replaced it with a spare, it still leaked. I aired up the tire put the cap on the valve stem and hit the road. At the campground, this morning I found no leakage. I will try another extension this morning an to see if it goes back to leaking.

That's outstanding news about your system. My system has helped me a few times. Just a suggestion on your tire valve extensions. The best thing to do is to get rid of the extensions all together. You can purchase full length, one piece valves for your inside dualls and eliminate the extensions all together. I put them on a previous rig, and will add them to my current Bus when I get the time. These are the ones I used.

The kit (4 stems) is $120, but you only need 2 stems for the inner duals, so it's half as much.

Sarge. I have a question for you on the valve stems. I want to replace mine as well. Are the stems bent and or curved in order to check and add air?? I assume they are. Are you able to show a closeup picture of your dually's?? I do have the straight/angled air chuck as well as the tire pressure gauge , same way.
Thank you.

The stems are straight and about 10" long. When they are installed the tech will bend them slightly to fit in the center of the wheel hole (they are made of brass and chrome covered). Then they extend past the outside wheel a few inches. A straight chuck air inflator works easily. Here is a pic that I took from a previous rig I had them put on. You may need to zoom in on it to see the valve better.

SargeW thanks for your post and information, I have exactly what you are recommended for the duslls. Your post make me go back an reread what I had posted. I should have stated that the leak is on the Pax side front.
I will make an edit if I can, so others who read it will know.

I tried to edit the post but I can't do it, so I will try it this way In the above I should have mention that the tire with the problem is Pax front.

I assume you meant passenger front?
