    I have a braided valve extension on my rear inner wheel of my Class A. It's difficult to
    air up. The outer wheel (not with braided extension) accepst air just find.

    It's like my air chuck does not fit. It was purchased at Wal-mart. Or perhaps a different type
    of braided line is in order. Can't ever get an accurate reading.

    Are there others that had this problems. And why is this print so small, can't hardly read it!

    Thanks again for all the prior help!

    Hey Fred. Not sure about the braided extensions, we bought ours and had them installed at an RV shop and have been happy with them...In fact that is the ONLY thing that certain RV shop did right.

    Now the small print, I can help you with that :laugh: Look at the bottom right of your computer screen and click on the + which will increase the print size to a level that is more comfortable for you. Hope this helps!!

    If you go to View/Zoom you see some choices and how to increase the print size.

    Regarding the braided extensions. On my last motor home one of them leaking caused a blowout.

    Although they came on this motor home from the factory I have always been nervous about them and when adding air it was difficult to hold the extension with one hand and hold the chuck on the extension with the other.

    A few weeks ago when I replaced all six tires I had them install DualllyValve metal valve stem extensions on the duals.
    Adding air is so easy now it's almost a pleasure! The PressurePro tire pressure sensors fit well also.
    You can see them here
