Valve Extensions for inside Dually

Anyone else have issues with these failing? I have had my rig for about 18 months. I have replaced both side once and not going for a second time. Any recommendations on good replacements?

You don't mention the style of extensions that came on your coach.

I've had four coaches (three different brands) and found that the metal ones are less likely to leak, although these things are made cheaply. Like a garden hose, they need to be tight but not over tight where is deforms the seal.

A couple years ago I had a slow leak on an inside dual and went to a truck tire center replace the extension. Just in case the main valve had a problem, he recommend doing a new valve while the tire was pulled off. Not sure which was really leaking, but it holds well now.

I would eliminate the extensions and go with one piece stems.

You never gave any information on what the failure was, so this may. or may not apply.

Freightliner installed some valve stems bent at an incorrect angle on the inside dual, which caused failures of the extensions installed on them. They recently sent out a recall for inspection and or replacement of the valve stem, extension and rubber grommet.

I doubt the valve stem was a Freightliner item. Most likely from a supplier and some them could have come your way. May be worth checking out.
