I have one of those but when pressed against the valve stem, it still won't depress the valve core.

If you have tried a couple different pressure gauges or air chucks and can't depress the valve core then I suspect the core was installed too deeply in the stem and needs to be replaced with a new core.

The pin on a valve core should be about flush with the outer end of the stem.

Tireman, that is exactly what I have been trying to say. The valve core is to deep on both sides. All the outside tires are just fine. Surprised no one else has had this exact problem. Like I said before, I think I'm going to have to replace those extenders that came with our coach if I want to add air or check tire pressures myself.

If the extenders that came with the Motorhome are the Air-Flexx airless extensions used on the Solera, several of us have solved the problem by cutting off one end or the other of the plastic threads on the extender - see this thread: http://www.forestriverforums.com/for...ure-45973.html
Good luck!

I had an issue getting air into the right inside dual. Took it to the local tire shop and the tech tightened something and was able to add air. I have not tried it since but will be checking the air in a couple of days before I get fuel ( waiting for the price to go down a bit more)

Many times people do not understand how tire valves work. If there is a valve core leak simply cranking down on the valve core may actually make things worse as the sealing surface is not like a water faucet.

I have a post on my blog "Why do Valves Leak" in Nov 2 2012 that covers this in detail. Info on my blog in my signature.

TPMS507 & Extenders?

So, if you need extenders and also want the tpms507RV system with flow thru sensors, what goes on first? The extenders and then the TPMS?

Don't think it makes any difference as long as the outer end of the hose is firmly mounted. Firmly means bolted down not held in place with springs or rubber bands.
