On my coach, the front wheel covers are held on my two of the simulated "nuts". A crescent wrench easily removes them.

There are right angle adapters available. An auto parts store or online via Amazon should find them.

They also make a 45 degree stainlees extender. I tried the 90 on my winnie and it hit the wheel and i could not stsrt the thread. I went back and got a 45 and it worked.

I put mine on without having to remove the wheel covers.

00DAME,

I wonder if your wheel simulator is properly "clocked". One of the openings has an extra, small, cutout that allows easier access to the valve stem. My RV has a standard rubber stem and it's easy to reach with a regular angled pressure gage and filler (although it probably would be difficult to reach with a "round" inflator).

As others have offered, there are some good 90 and 45 degree metal extenders that will do the trick for you.
