    anyone know of a good place to get tire air valve extentions and dual wheel equilizers with the attached guage. my trailer inside tires are so hard to fill and check because the holes in the wheels are so small, just thought if i had these i would run propper pressuse more often. thanks jay

    i will throw in my .02 worth. adding the equalizer system just adds that many more places for a leak to happen. if you get a flat, chances are you will now have 2 flats, since all the air will be let out of both tires.

    Jay,
    I thought I could have some input here. The cross fire and the visualizer are pretty much the same.
    When either tire starts to lose air the equalizer system will start to feed the leaking tire with air from the good tire, but at a certain point the system will stop long before depleting the good tires air. Hopefully by then you will have noticed a problem and fix it before destroying both tires.

    or if you bother tp read the whole write up on this product you will see that it cuts off to the tire leaking air and sends a warning signal seen from over 30 feet away so that on a worst case you only lose one tire NOT both
