The operator of my rv storage place installed one of those permanently on the end of the hose...now I can't check my front tires because the locking lever takes up too much room and won't clear the hole in the wheel cover. I either have to find another place to do my fronts or pull the front wheel covers off, or cobble together some type of extention(s) that will clear the thing.

I have seem most items for airing tires but maybe the terminology is different.
They're not 'axle caps'...they replace a normal cap that is installed on the wheel's valve stem that you can service the tire pressure without removing the cap. Looks like this:

tire pressure

These caps are bing used on oil field service trucks here in CO. They are in the dirt and mud all day long with no problems. When you check a tires pressure you are expelling a small amount of air from the stem which prevents it from injesting any sand or dirt.
