It was an expensive upgrade - about $300 for parts and installation. But I could see the benefit immediately. Especially since my 3051S came from the dealership without ANY inner wheel stem extensions. And the outer wheel extensions were leaking air.
Before this I had to remove the simulator and use a long reach air chuck to test and fill the inner wheels - quite a hassle. And, now, if I do move forward with TPMS I know my valve stems are up for the job.
I know it's much easier to check the air with those permanent metal valves. It's worth the peace of mind you get knowing you won't come out one morning and find a flat because of leaking extension.
Going off topic for a moment. Creativepart, doing the last minute preps before your big trip next week? Does your MH have the heat pump and will you use it in Tucson, and did you install the propane extender kit?
