"Anything I'm doing wrong?" Using the Slime tubes for one. They are heavy, and have an anoying habit which you have discovered. The valve will clog from the inside, because it acts like a leak. You have to take the valve core out, and (try) to clean the inside of the valve stem with a q-tip and water. You may have to replace the valve core, as it too will be fouled with dried or semi dried Slime. I tried a slime tube once, it didn't last the summer because I got so f'n sick and tired of cleaning the valve every time I wanted to add air.
Unless you get a lot of flats, get some regular tubes.
