Valve stem issues

Had my MBS for about 5 weeks and decided to check air pressure. Tried all my pressure gauges and air chucks and nothing works for the inside duals. It appears that the problem is the center actuator (or whatever its called!) is recessed too deeply in the valve stem. Did a search and saw some people changed to different types and still had issues. Any suggestions?

The problem with the valve extensions for the inside wheels is that they have a collar on the part that screws onto the original valve stem. The diameter of that collar is too small to fit over the rubber part of the original valve stem. Take the extension off and cut off about 1/8 - 3/16 inches of the collar. Put it back on and it should work. At least it worked for mine.

I cut a bit off the extender stem and they are now functional to check pressure and add air. Why would they manufacture them like this? The airflex would work fine if a person had 3 hands. The duallyvalve looks like a good option but I have a hard time spending money on an item that should come functional from the factory.

Good idea to only use the stock extensions to check and fill your tires and then remove them. Especially the 180 degree one on the outer dually. If those come loose while driving, they will leak and you will get a flat.

I went with the one piece setup thanks to Taylorgso, Capt Dan, Mikegjax, et all, and they are awesome.

They are mentioned and linked above and here valve extenders

Remove wheels, tires, install valves & balance, etc.

A good tire shop is needed.

I went to one that also works on some big rigs, so they have dually experience.
