How to air up outer dually tire on Class C Coachman Concord

I have a 225le coachman concord 2013. I have not found a good solution to adding air to outer dual wheel as the tire valve faces inward and with the wheel cover not enough room. I have been taking wheel cover off each time but this is not a good solution any help would ve appreciated,

Look into duallyvalve.com. They can be ordered on line, but some tire shops have them also. They are solid stems that require the tire to be dismounted and then remounted, thus a tire shop that carries them is your best bet.

As mentioned by coachman jay call Duallyvalve.com to order their dually kit for your rims. I have them, makes it simple for checking and adding air.

I bought one of these straight air chucks: Milton dually air chuck . They are made for dually filling and have the proper angle for it. Under $10 it was a great deal!

Harbor freight carries a chuck and pressure gauge for about ten dollars it's usually easier to air the outside dual then the inside. A good set of valve stems do make it easier but would require breaking down and remounting tires at a cost. Probably better to do it when you replace tires.

You can also get extenders for the valve stems. Some are like 135 degrees and put the end back toward you. Lot of ways to solve your problem. The easiest is just get a fill with the dual ends, like suggested.

Most of the valves I've seen have air-through caps on them. If that's the case with yours, all you have to do is put the air chuck right over the cap and fill her up. With that Milton chuck I linked, you use the straight part for the inners and the back facing one for the outer wheels.

Be careful leaving the caps off could get dirt in the stem. When you add air can push the dirt into valve core and cause it to leak. I have the flow through caps that Maligator mentioned. Very simple to check and add air, I wipe them off before checking pressure or adding air.

Yep. Works like a charm.
