Has anyone put valve stem extensions on their DRW? We recently purchased a dually truck and I can't air up the inner dually on either side. I'm thinking of doing something to make this easier. What is your solution?

Try the extended valve stems from Your Tireshop Supply I use them on my duallys,makes checking the air pressure fast and easy.
You do not want those braided extensions,a solid valve stem is the way to go.

Never used on in 30 years of owning a dually! Correct chuck and filling inner tire, checking pressure is a piece of cake!
Incorrect chuck or pressure guage, and yes, you have problems all around.
Prefer to get rims with bigger holes to get to valve stems if correct chuck etc is not available.

I tried 3 sets of flexible extensions and they all leaked, some sooner than others. Finally I just gave up and found an angled air pressure gauge that works very well. And a filler with the same angled head.

The chuck linked to above wouldn't work for me, I use this one: Straight Head

I took off the extensions off of my motorhome after they let all of the air out of the inner tires once and replaced them with a TPMS system and a double ended air chuck. No more flats and a lot more peace of mind. Much easier to use.

It wasn't a link. THAT takes a computer EXPERT that I am NOT! That is exactly what I was referring to.

They make extensions you simply screw on to your inner tire. About an inch long. It is all I ever use. Never leaks and very inexpensive.
