I'm still struggling with an air leak somewhere on my RIB. I replaced all the valves and it improved a bit but it still seems to go a bit baggy within 5 days which means regular checking and pumping up.
I've noticed it's the back right tube and bow tube which seem to be the worst. I could replace the inner valves again but I noticed the front value assembly ) turns if you give it little force so maybe it needs taking off cleaning/replacing and fitting again. It's a PVC boat and obviously the PVC is very thick and not exactly easy to feel though. I watched this
for a Hyalon boat on how to remove the valve body and is it the same principle? I'm worried that if I remove the upper part of the plastic body then I won't be able to reattach it to the lower part as the PVC is so thick there won't be anything to grip onto much. If there a trick to this or it a do or die scenario?
These are what I have (picture before replacing the inner valve):
