Tire pressure

I am a Newbie in the RV world and I was told to check your tire pressure before each trip. How do you check the pressure on the inner tire in the back. I bought a long pressure gauge and still can't get at it. Do I need extenders on the tire?

Valve extenders! Money well spent

While valve extenders will allow you to more easily check and adjust air pressure on the inner duals, they are prone to leaks. A better solution is to replace the valve stems with longer ones.

Another vote for Borge valve stems. Well worth the money.
