Windjammer, I totally understand your frustration, and would be equally as upset with purchasing a new RV and it showing up with damaged components.
However, as you can see from my avatar, as to what I do for a living. It's rather simplistic to think that even though a clamp-in metal stem is $2 per, that a delivery driver, or transporter is going to first take the RV to a tire dealer and pay to have these clamp-in valve stems installed. You would have to remove the tire/wheel from the RV, break the tire down, install the stem, and reinstall the tire/rim back to the RV. That would cost a whole lot more than $2, as you will find out once you do this to your RV...unless you have friends/family in the tire business.
Hopefully, this will be the only problems you encounter, and you are able to enjoy your RV and use it for the purpose you bought it for.
If you do encounter future problems, no matter the fault or reasons, you can be self assured and confident that you have many friends here on these forums who are eager to help...as well as share their vast experience and expertise.
Not even related, but just to show you how things don't always work out. I had a brand spanking new, in-the-box, tire balancer delivered yesterday to the shop. Upon un-crating it, the factory had forgot to put a main part on it, that makes it unusable until I get it. After a phone call, They are supposed to be shipping it right out, but that doesn't help my feelings now or can I use it as needed. The saving grace is the local retailer I bought it from, keeps a loaner balancer, for this very reason. It's just another example of how a good dealer can make a good hand out of bad cards dealt it.
