TPMS does not register pressure

I recently bought a Doran 360 RV unit, I have this unit ready to go with the exceptuion of my right rear inside tire. This tire has a extension, when I put on the sensor I do NOT hear any air coming out so it does not register. However I can manuall read the tire pressure as well as fill the tire when needed. I have called Doran they had mention that I could back out the air valve a bit to see if this helps. NG, I am trying to find a 7 1/4 air stem ( the inner part of the extension to trhy that). Has anyone come accross this issue I haave a Fleetwood Southwind.

It doesnt appear to be the sensor and if I just push in on the needle no air comes out as well

You may just need a new valve core.

That is what I am thinking. I am having an issue trying to find one. Went to a number of tire shops as well as parts stores

Have you tried a store that specializes in truck tires?

X2 on Truck shop, I have 6" on my inside back tires, no problems. I would say it is your valve core.

The problem is the sensor does not press down the valve enough to get a good reading. Did you use the little brass gauge they gave you to determine that the valve stuck out enough for the sensor to depress it? I had to file down the valve stems on my jeep to get it to read consistently.

I ran into this problem also. The flexible stem will not work as it uses a mechanical extended tire valve cable. And if you do get it to work it will leak the air out of the tire slowly. The flexible extender is not made to hold constant air pressure.
You will need to change out the tire stem to a solid brass extender. After much research I found them here:Borg Equipment and Supply Your Tire Shop Supply | Supplies for Tire Shops talk to Bill. He set me up with 10" extenders and new rubber isolators. He is very knowledgeable on what s needed. The tires have to come off and be broken down to install the new stems. I also found that only a truck tire shop can do the 22.5" tires I have. I have the Ford chassis on the 2014 Bounder.
I hope this helps.
