Dual Tires, Air

Hi, I have a MH and I put new Dual "Braided" air lines on when I put new tires on. My question is: Does anyone run their "Duals" without any extensions? I have had nothing but "BAD Luck" with the Braided lines and am now wondering if I should just go (Naked) with NO extensions!? Anyone had good luck with Nothing?

If you can reach the valve stems easily I'd say go "naked" I've had braided extensions on my Class C, my Class A, and I have them on my dually now, never have had any problems with any of them.

Look into a air system calls the Catseye air system use it on tractor trailers not that expensive and no electronic components to fail also keeps tire pressure balanced and can see if a tire is low at a glance.

Thank you all, I'm going to go without at least for awhile to see how it goes.

Just check with a tire pressure gauge often. Old school truck drivers used a tire thumper you learn the sound if one is out of tune it is low. Still do it today.

I "thump" them, but when I need to add air I can't get to the stems if I don't have the extenders.

This might work, but its simplier to find an extension that'll work for you with simulators on.https://www.amazon.com/Milton-S693-D...chuck+straight

Thanks Tugboat, this is the system I'll be putting on my dually.
